London Calling!

This song from The Clash is one of my favorites. The line “London Calling” refers to the BBC broadcast that was sent to Occupied Europe in WWII, which began with that line.1

Of course, we all know this song refers to a city, in England, called London. But, if you look at a map of this city, you might notice a little patch in the middle that is not “in” the city. If you look at the name, it is called the “City of London”.

This is one of the oldest and most mysterious cities. But, don’t be fooled, this is not where the King lives. However, it is one of the most powerful places in the world.

In this article, I will look at the history of the city, how it functions, what is it’s impact, and how it relates to my previous article on the Federal Reserve.

I will let you know: I am not a financial mogul, historian, or expert in anything. I read and listen to things I am interested in, and then write about it. I will learn as much as you do from this article, I hope. Maybe I am a future financial mogul, historian, or expert in anything… anyway, lets get to it.

The History of the City

Once upon a time the Romans ruled the world. Or, at least what they considered the world, which happened to be what they ruled. One place they ruled was the isle of Britain.
