In their December 31, 2011 editorial, A Happy New Year and Many New Schemes!, Daily Bell founder and Editor-in-Chief, Anthony Wile, wrote:

First, allow me to wish all our readers and viewers a happy new year. This has been a year of growth for our modest publication, and we regularly receive upwards of 20-25 million hits a month.

It’s likely an honest mistake on their part, in saying month instead of year. However, I saw two comments on the number, and they responded, not indicating any realization that the number is definitely incorrect for the timeframe of a month.

There’s no way they are getting 20-25 million hits a month, as Mish Shedlock’s globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.com site was ranked far higher by Alexa.com, in the 14,000th to 35,000th range in 2011, while the Daily Bell has fluctuated between the 30,000th to 100,000th range, and Mish’s stats show he had 21,262,533 page hits for all of 2011.

The Anglo-American establishmentIn their interview with James Bovard on September 25, 2011, The Daily Bell asked him about their Anglo-American meme.

Daily Bell: Do you believe there is a kind of power-elite cabal that is trying to set up one world government? We call it the Anglo-American power elite.

James Bovard: Don’t forget the French. They were the ones who dragged NATO into the war in Libya. I hope that whatever Anglo-American power elite exists can be soon exiled to some isolated Colorado mountaintop where they hold gassy conferences in perpetuity that no one attends.

Notice the dismissiveness of Bovard’s response concerning the Anglo-American elite.  Yes, that’s right, Daily Bell — there is more to the New World Order power structure than an Anglo-American elite. Indeed, George W. Bush was actually correct that there was an Iraq War “coalition of the willing” consisting of non-Anglo countries, no matter how relatively puny that contingent was.

The Anglo-American establishmentA common theme of The Daily Bell is their critical examination of what they refer to as  “The Anglo-American” establishment.

From their Contributors page:

John Browne:

After graduating from Harvard Business School, he joined Morgan Stanley & Co as an investment banker. He has also worked with Barclays Bank and Citigroup and has served on the boards of several banks and international corporations, with a special involvement in venture capital.

You can’t get much more Anglo-American than Morgan Stanley (American), Barclays (British) and Citigroup (American).

Anthony Wile (founder):

Prior to beginning a career in publishing, Mr. Wile worked in the Canadian investment industry with Scotia McLeod (Bank of Nova Scotia), and Nesbitt Burns (Bank of Montreal).

Being from Canada, I know these two banks well. They are two of Canada’s Big Five government-enforced oligopolistic banks. The Bank of Nova Scotia is Canada’s most international bank, and the Bank of Montreal was the government of Canada’s banker before the establishment of The Bank of Canada in 1935, back when Canada was a dependent creation of British Parliament.

He continues to advise and consult to large international banks and money managers as well as to senior executives at both senior and junior mining firms.

If any of the “large international banks” he continues to advise and consult for happen to be based in the U.S. or the UK, then that’s also as Anglo-American establishment as you can get.

Previously, I wrote Strange bedfellows: The Federal Reserve and The Daily Bell, in response to Daily Bell founder Anthony Wile questioning whether the Greenbacker movement is being actively promoted by US Intel.
