Rothschild-owned The Economist's 2015 cover full of unsettling symbols

The Economist is a well-known and quite prestigious London-based weekly news magazine, founded in 1843 by James Wilson, a Scottish businessman, economist and politician. It claims an average weekly circulation of 1.5 million in 2006, about half of which were sold in the United States.
The publication belongs to The Economist Group, half of which is owned by Pearson PLC via the Financial Times. The other half is owned by a group of independent shareholders, including the Rothschild banking family of England.
That the Rothchilds own part of The Economist accounts for why Vigilant Citizen (VC), the blogger who specializes in analyzing pop culture symbols and their hidden meanings, gives import to the magazine’s disquieting “The World in 2015” cover with a mushroom cloud from a nuclear bomb explosion, among other disturbing images. In VC’s words:

It [The Economist] is partly owned by the Rothschild banking family of England and its editor-in-chief, John Micklethwait, attended several times to the Bilderberg Conference – the secretive meeting where the world’s most powerful figures from the world of politics, finance business and media discuss global policies. The outcome of those meetings is totally secret. It is therefore safe to say that the people at The Economist know things that most people don’t.

Here is The Economist‘s 2015 cover (click to enlarge), followed by an analysis.
economist_magazine_jan2015
To begin, The Economist‘s 2015 cover is reminiscent of the eerie image on the album cover of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (see below), which was a color photo taken in a studio of the four Beatles wearing band uniforms, surrounded by life-size cardboard cutouts of themselves in suits, as well as those of famous personalities, both living and dead.
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
The Beatles, of course, are in color, as are some of the cardboard figures, while other figures are in black and white (b&w). There doesn’t seem to be a discernible reason for why some are in b&w because they include people both dead (e.g., Karl Marx) and alive (e.g., Bob Dylan).

Black & White Faces

The Economist‘s “The World in 2015” cover also has various figures in color and b&w, with one difference — only the heads and faces of some are in b&w, while their bodies are in color, which gives their faces a grey, drained-of-blood, walking-dead quality. The b&w heads are a majority, and they include both the living (Barack Obama) and the dead (Winston Churchill). Vigilant Citizen thinks that “those in black and white appear to be part of the elite (including the ISIS guy who probably works for them) and those in color are ‘outsiders’. Is this how the elite perceives the world?”
Economist 2015

The Pied Piper

Economist 2015a
VC writes:
“The presence of the Pied Piper on this 2015-themed cover is downright unsettling. The Pied Piper of Hamelin is a German legend about a man who used his magical flute to lure away the children of the city of Hamelin, never to be seen again.
This folkloric figure dating from the Middle-Ages is said to represent either massive death by plague or catastrophe, or a movement of massive immigration. It also perfectly represents today’s youth being ‘lured’ and mystified by the ‘music’ of mass media. Conveniently enough, there’s a small boy right under the Piper’s flute.”
To reinforce the message of pop music’s seductive allure, there’s a drum set beneath the clueless little boy. One drum has stars and stripes (signifying American pop music); another is inscribed with “50th,” meaning what?

Game of Panic

VC writes: “Right under the Pied Piper we see a young boy with dumbfounded look on his face. He is watching a game called ‘Panic’. The words ‘Federal Reserve’ and ‘Chi’ (which probably stands for China) are on top while the words ‘Green light!’ and ‘sis!’ (which probably stands for ‘Isis!’ or ‘Crisis!’) are at the bottom. The little boy watches as this twisted game of Plinko unfolds the same way the clueless masses watch powerlessly while various events unfold on mass media. As the name of the game states, the ultimate goal is to cause Panic around the world as crises are almost randomly generated by those who control the game. And that’s on a magazine cover owned by the Rothschilds.”
Economist 2015b

Crop Duster

Economist 2015c
In front of a sinister-looking Russian president Vladimir Putin is a small helicopter on which is written Crop-O-Dust — a reference to crop dusting, “the process of spraying crops with powdered insecticides or fungicides from an aircraft.
Right under the helicopter is an Asian kid, eating processed noodles, made from wheat that the crop duster had sprayed?
And below the kid is “PANIC”!

.

CHINA

Next to the noodle-eating Chinese kid is a panda on steroids, wearing a China-flag Speedo while flexing its muscles — a clear reference to China gaining power. The panda dwarfs a sumo wrestler, signifying the eclipse of Japan by China.
The sumo wrestler holds an out-sized battery on which the polarities (+ and -) are clearly indicated. VC wonders if that’s a symbol for a switch in polarity in world power from the West to the East?
Economist 2015d

GHOST ON HOLIDAY

Economist 2015e
VC writes: “Emerging from behind Obama’s leg is a ghost reading a magazine entitled ‘Holiday’. Why is this ghost, which represents a dead person, planning a vacation? Does it represent the fact that the masses will be so impoverished that the only time they’ll be on a holiday is when they’re dead? Does it relate to the countless people who died while traveling in the past months? Creepy.”

TURTLE

Economist 2015 turtle
VC writes: “Standing in front of everything else, gazing right into our souls is a turtle with emphasis lines around its shell. What does it represent? Will turtles make a huge comeback in 2015? Probably not.
Fabian Society turtleAn angry tortoise is the symbol of the Fabian Society, an extremely powerful organization that has been working for over a century towards the formation of a single world government. The philosophy behind Fabian socialism is basically the blueprint of what we call today the New World Order…..
Fabian Society original logoThe Fabian Society used to openly advocate a scientifically planned society and supported eugenics by way of sterilization. Its original logo was a wolf in sheep’s clothing … But I guess that was not the best way to conceal the wolf from the masses. [A turtle is so much better!]
Bringing forth a global system through small incremental changes is exactly what the world elite is currently doing.”

11.3 and 11.5

VC writes: “The lower right side of the cover features some more cryptic symbols. There’s a pile of dirt on the ground and two arrows on which are inscribed 11.5 and 11.3. Are those dates to remember? Why are they next to a pile of dirt? If you look up these figures as coordinates, they point to somewhere in Nigeria. Displaying numbers that can only be truly understood by ‘those in the know’ is one of the occult elite’s favorite hobbies.”
Economist 2015f

Alice in Wonderland & the Cheshire Cat

Standing to the right of the 11.5 (November 5?) and 11.3 (November 3?) arrows is Alice in Wonderland, who’s looking up at the Cheshire Cat on a tree branch. VC writes: “This iconic cat is known for disappearing entirely, leaving only visible its creepy grin. We therefore see another allusion to a world of fantasy, illusion and deceit as perceived by Alice – a representative of the masses. Along with the somewhat unnecessary inclusion of David Blaine – a magician – the cover mixes real world events with illusions.”
Note that the tree branch is coming from Obama’s leg — the man of fantasy, illusion, and lies.
Economist 2015g

The Lady with No Ermine

To the right of Alice is a portrait that’s a reverse image of Leonardo da Vinci’s painting, The Lady with an Ermine (1489-1490), but without the ermine.

The Lady With an ErmineLeonardo da Vinci’s Lady with an Ermine (l); Economist 2015 cover’s lady without an ermine (r)

The subject of da Vinci’s portrait is Cecilia Gallerani, the mistress of Ludovico Sforza, Duke of Milan, who was the painter’s patron. Ermines, aka stoats, are known for their purity. That, of course, means that The Economist‘s lady without an ermine is without purity.

Spiderman

Then there’s Spiderman, the only reference to a movie or pop culture figure on The Economist‘s “World in 2015” cover.
Why Spiderman? Why not the even more popular The Hobbit? The worldwide box office total for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which was released on May 2, 2014, is $708,996,336. In contrast, the third Hobbit movie The Battle of the Five Armies, which was released on Dec. 10, 2014, already has a worldwide box office of $804,256,417, and the movie hasn’t yet opened in China.
But wait!
Might The Economist‘s Spiderman be a veiled reference to Serco, the British-owned and UK-based global “outsourcing company” government contractor that has a spider as its logo? (H/t FOTM’s marblenecltr)
Serco operates public and private transport and traffic control, aviation, military weapons, detention centers, prisons and schools on behalf of its customers, among whom is the Obama administration. In July 2013, Serco was awarded a $1.25 billion contract to manage the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Obamacare. Serco is also one of the 55 contractors hired by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to work on the dysfunctional HealthCare.gov web site.
Spiderman & SERCO

OTHER IMAGES

There are other cryptic images in The Economist‘s 2015 cover like the two-faced globe; the blonde woman with a strange head-dress; the strange thing (a piggy bank?) coming out of UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s suit jacket; and the Illuminati one-eye sign German Chancellor Angela Merkel is making with her hands.
Economist 2015j
Angela Merkel
Whatever the image, know that it’s there for a reason. The Economist had commissioned an artist to put together its “World in 2015” cover, which means much time and thought went into it. The images were selected for a reason, and each has an esoteric meaning known to The Economist but concealed from the rest of us.

Update (May 20, 2015):

My FOTM colleague, Trail Dust, found an explanation for the cover by The Economist’s editor. See “Editor of The Economist explains meaning of 2015 cover illustration“.

This is very odd….
At first glance I thought the blonde woman with the head-dress was Killary (albeit a younger version or her wearing a face mask).

Excellent post, very interesting and challenging! The Economist, cousin of the Rockefeller/CFR Luciferian Foreign Affairs. The figures appear to be waving-hello or goodbye? BHO is front and center, but there is no one British in the front row. The royals are probably in the Scottish countryside. Merkel, daughter of a Lutheran minister, is giving us the non-Christian Illuminati sign, and Spider-Man is on the lower right-a reference to SERCO, a major behind-the-scenes international management group with the web of the spider their symbol. Chrissie Sumer did excellent research on SERCO, which had possible connection to Sandy Hook, both in personnel… Read more »

Thank you. More info, SERCO, formerly RCA, is located in Hook, Hampshire, England, and Ian Hockley, father of son Dylan it was reported, worked as an IBM finance manager near Hook before coming to live across the street from the Lanza family. In England, he was also listed as an actor. And wasn’t Mr. Lanza involved in finances/credit for GE.
Maybe this is a reach, but Cape Cod, the first place the Pilgrims landed is actually a geographical sandy hook. There are people with the time and resources to play such games, and some do.

I knew the Economist cover was a Sgt. Pepper rip-off the moment I saw it. All right, I get it: Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. But notice the figures in B & W. I think it’s ominous in this sense: The purveyors of this message may be saying that all the leaders are expendable. (Politically, at least). That being said, one of the songs on the Sgt. Pepper album is “A Day in the Life,” a fatalistic song about a motor vehicle accident. Examine the lyrics, and apply them to the situation we’re in today. Could it be… Read more »

I’ve admired the ‘Sgt. Pepper’ album cover since it first came out. Seems like a lifetime ago…….. sigh.
In looking at the ‘Economist’ cover again, I’ve been trying to figure out what that drone is carrying…..
…. obama’s secret identity papers?
…. the social security ‘lockbox’ ?
… all the gold that used to be in the vaults of Ft. Knox perhaps?

This is a great site; really enjoy the articles. I used to be a frequent visitor to VC’s site, but after reading a piece where he equated the Immaculate Conception with the Virgin Birth (in an article that analyzes the symbolism contained in a Lady Gaga video) and his subsequent refusal to correct the mistake after being made aware of the error, I sharply decreased my visits to his blog. It’s an understandable guffaw based on the common misconception of the I.C.’s meaning, but the lack of reception to constructive criticism has diminished his credibility in my eyes and prompts… Read more »

Well since we see alice in wonderland i thought it must be something and jews like to do things in their special days.
That why 11.3 can be 1.13 and 11.5 will be 1.15

Marx’s effort to derive the market price of goods from their value, the labor that went into them, was a vestige of the 19th-century economic theories of David Ricardo and John Stuart Mill. By the time Marx died, economists had already given up trying to relate price to value and were beginning to understand that value was a chimera. With the growing dominance of technology, it had become impossible to locate value in the time required to produce goods, as Marx, following Ricardo and Mill, had tried to do. Machines make products incredibly fast; but these products aren’t worth any… Read more »
