The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions



The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions

The magazine The Economist published an issue named “The World in 2015”. On the cover are odd images:  A mushroom cloud, the Federal Reserve in a game called “Panic” and much more.

I wouldn’t normally dedicate an entire article analyzing the cover of a publication, but this isn’t any publication. It is The Economist and it is directly related to the world elite. It 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. For this reason, its “2015 prediction” cover is rather puzzling.

The bleak and sinister cover features political figures, fictional characters and pop culture icons that will surely make the news in 2015. However, most importantly, it also includes several drawings that are extremely symbolic and allude to important elements of the elite’s Agenda. Here’s the cover :

(You can view a larger version of the cover here).

At first glance, we see political figures like Obama and Putin, references to the Rugby cup and the new Spider-Man movie. But a closer look reveals a plethora of disturbing elements. Here are some of them.

Two-Faced Globe

The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions

One side of the globe gazes stoically towards the West while the other side appears irate. Does this represent a confrontation between the East and the West? The cover features a few other symbols referring to the “rise of the East”. What’s more unsettling is that immediately under that angry globe, are pictured a mushroom cloud (the kind that happens after a nuclear bomb goes off) and a spy satellite launching into space.

High tech surveillance and nuclear warfare. The Economist is not very optimistic.

The Color of the Faces

Take a closer look at the faces of the personalities featured on the cover. Some of them are in full color while others are in black and white. Why is that?

The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions

Among those in black in white are Putin, Merkel, Obama, Hilary Clinton and David Cameron. Among those in color are David Blaine, a young person holding a “Singapore” banner (Singapore is the host of the 2015 SEA games) and a random guy wearing virtual reality equipment. A quick compilation of this data reveals 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?

Pied Piper

The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions

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.

The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions

The Pied Piper leads the children out of Hamelin. Illustration from Robert Browning’s “The Pied Piper of Hamelin”

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 Piper’s flute.

Clueless Boy

The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions

Right under the Pied Piper, we see a young boy with a 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.


The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions

In front of Putin is a small aircraft on which is written Crop-O-Dust. This refers to the concept of crop dusting which is “the process of spraying crops with powdered insecticides or fungicides from an aircraft.” Right under the helicopter is a kid … eating something. Unsettling.

The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions

Sitting right under the crop-o-dust, this kid is eating a heavily processed package of noodles. Is he ingesting the poison that was spread by the aircraft?


The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions

A panda bear wearing a China-flag Speedo while flexing its muscles is a rather clear way of portraying the fact that China is gaining power. Next to it is a sumo wrestler holding a big battery on which the polarities (+ and -) are clearly indicated. Are they alluding to a switch in polarity in world power from the West to the East?


The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions

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.


The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions

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.

An angry tortoise is the symbol of the Fabian Society, an extremely powerful organization that has been working for over a century towards to formation of a single world government.

The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions

The motto of the Fabian Society is “When I strike, I strike hard”.

The philosophy behind Fabian socialism is basically the blueprint of what we call today the New World Order.

The Fabian Society is a very old group originating in England in 1884, with the purpose of forming a single, global socialist state. They get their name from the Roman general Fabius, who used carefully planned strategies to slowly wear down his enemies over a long period of time to obtain victory. “Fabian Socialism” uses incremental change over a long period of time to slowly transform a state as opposed to using violent revolution for change. It is essentially socialism by stealth. Their original emblem was a shield with a wolf in sheep’s clothing holding a flag with the letters F.S. Today the international symbol of the Fabian Society is a turtle, with the motto below: “When I strike, I strike hard.”
– The Fabian Society, The Weather Eye

The 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.

The original logo of the Fabian Society.

Bringing forth a global system through small incremental changes is exactly what the world elite is currently doing. This is probably why there’s an angry tortoise on the cover of this Bilderberg-connected publication – standing in front of the chaos behind it.

11.3 and 11.5

The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions

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.

Standing in front of the dirt is Alice in Wonderland looking upwards towards the Cheshire Cat.

The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions

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.

Other notable symbols on this cover include a piggy bank flying from James Cameron’s pockets;  A model wearing an Alexander McQueen creation (the elite’s favorite designer who died in strange circumstances) and an Asian officer wearing a facemask to protect him from a deadly disease.

2015 seems great, doesn’t it?

In Conclusion

The Economist is not a random newspaper that publishes quirky 2015 predictions to sell a few additional copies. It is directly connected to those who shape global policies and who make sure that they are applied. The publication is partly owned by the Rothschild banking family of England and its editor regularly attends Bilderberg meetings. In other words, The Economist is connected to those who have the means and the power to make “predictions” a reality.

The 2015-themed cover basically reflects the overall Agenda of the elite and is peppered with cryptic symbols that appear to be included for “those in the know”. And the masses, like Alice watching the Cheshire Cat disappear, will focus on illusions while the wolf in sheep’s clothing will strike … and strike hard.

Paris attacks November 13, 2015 – Alice in Wonderland inset – post attack speculation ————————————————————————————————————————- There has been discussion on the internet about the possible prediction of the Paris attacks in the Alice in Wonderland inset at the bottom right of the Economist cover, but discussion seems scattered and incomplete. After studying the available commentary I would like to consolidate it and add a few speculative comments of my own–admittedly ex post facto and consequently subject to the appropriate level of scepticism. 1. Arrows: 11.5 11.3 —————————- If these six digits are to represent a date for a prediction of a 2015 event, then we immediately remove a "1" and a "5" leaving the digits "1 1 1 3". The month must be between 1 and 12 so we immediately get "11". The day has two possibilities "13" and "31" which are valid, but November has only 30 days so the correct order must be "13". In American date terms then we get "11/13/15", British "13/11/15" or ISO [20]15/11/30 all of which can only be read as "November 13, 2015"–the date of the Paris attacks. As commented on in various places on the internet these six numbers can only be… Read more »


I think this magazine cover is more relevant today then it was in 2015. The sickening display of symbols were telling a story of what was to unfold in 2016 and possibly beyond. Black &white racial division, Obama’s suit being literally what Trump wore election day, pied piper misleading=possibly the msm misleading the masses with all kinds of stories, and the east snarling at the west (we all can only imagine what relations will be like between America & Russia if something is done that Putin does not like). We could go on & on and speculate about what’s to happen next but, Thankfully we were given a manuscript of how all of this will end…what manuscript? THE BIBLE……2 Peter 3:11 says ” Since all these things are to be dissolved in this way, consider what sort of people you ought to be in holy acts of conduct and deeds of godly devotion, you await and keep close in mind the presence of the day of Jehovah…” Now that ppl are waking up or have woke up, what will you do about? What can you do about saving your life and those of your loved ones? Instead making it your… Read more »


where have the rest of the comments gone VC?
There was about 939 comments the last time I checked.


VC – Thank you very much for taking the time to break this down for us. To be illuminated and yet not be on the inside, or not having had the benefit of ridding oneself of guilt via the cremation of care ceremony, makes all of this painful to me and anyone with a heart. While there is a place for your work — it's almost an academic exercise, really — I feel energy ebb from me as I am sucked into the elite's mindset. I would rather go about my business without considering such overarching malice. But it is hard to ignore the elite's activities when they are spraying heavy metals on us from above and filling our minds with garbage via public education and hollywood. I'd rather that the elites would vanish like ghouls at sunrise, but it appears that a violent confrontation will be required if we wish to be left alone. None of the bankers responsible for the 2008 financial crisis went to jail. I am not sure that we can rely on any agency of the federal government to set things right. Where that leaves us, I am not sure.

Dionysus Reborn

Notice the pig in front of David Cameron. Hmmm. It's in the news recently that Prime Minister Cameron put his private part in a dead pig's mouth for initiation into a secret society.


Merkle forms an Eye with her hands and in the centre, her black button– the pupil.
The Pied piper is also putting his horn in Putins hand.
Clown fish suggest their thoughts on Putin.
Turn the date around a bit and it looks like the date of Paris attacks 151113
The Portrait is a Da Vinci Portrait that is in the Louvre Museum in Paris.
Clinton is mocking Putin.
Obviously terrorist attacks with balaclavas in the background.
The Queen is driving a land rover at their feet– is she something to do with all this?


i think the queen does have something to do with this there was a rumor plus something i read way back when some of this started was that our federal gold reserve has all been transferred to one of her volts i do not know how true or accurate that info is though!


Just realised that the Land Rover Defender is being driven by the Queen, so are we being warned/advised of her demise by associating her with the doomed vehicle which is being terminated because it can't be modernised, as it is, to meet modern requirements. There is some pretty convoluted thought gone into all this….. if it's what they are actually doing.


This is truly unsettling… The fact that there are a few elite pulling everyone's strings and implying all these weird symbols in broad daylight really scares me. As far as I'm concerned the current ISIS problem also probably is a planned initiative from an elite group of people. And the fact that free masons are involved…


11.3 and 11.5

11.13.15 date of Paris attacks. All the numbers and decimals represented.


okay first let's be clear about something here

people know they are real and no one does anything about it so why bother

seriously they planned everything from A to Z

they even planned what will they do when people realize the truth

and realize the media is nothing manipulating tool

it's all written on the illuminati card game

they know we know the truth but they are so calm because we won't do anything about it and they are right

but i have to thank VC for his effort


Did this magazine cover predict Trump being elected?! The blue suit and red tie President Obama is wearing on the cover match exactly what Trump wore at his original announcement speech… Even the posture in similar.


Yes it did but most are not listening or paying attention. Trump is the cheshire cat! notice/compare the grin/smile from cheek to cheek to trumps smile. he is there alright.But do not fear, God is watching. Look at my ealier post because Christ is hidden in that picture under cameroons foot.


Thanks for the response! They do have similar smiles… Very creepy! Another observation: Trump has been playing the role of the Pied Piper. His campaign/election completely demolished the real liberty movement in this country; the media portrayed him as anti-establishment and lured Americans into supporting him. The truth is he’s on the elite’s team, just like Clinton and the rest of them.

I tried finding the hidden picture based on your other post but I couldn’t see anything. 🙁


ok, look at the bottom right hand side, if you go from left to right it is inline with alices beige skirt.
now go to the left under the queens jeep and you will see two black shoes on the guy in a yellow skirt , under his right shoe is an eye and his left is the nose, under camerons shoe is the other eye, now zoom out because it is in plain sight and very very cleverly hidden.
Do you see it yet?

Michael T Butler

Interesting you say that. It could be said that the orange Cheshire cat/Trump, is ‘branching off’ from Obama, and intersecting/crossing paths with President Xi of China.


i am surprised you didn’t make mention of what looks to be Ann Boleyn right in front of Alice!?


hi I believe what is termed the piper is a UN law firm called the piper i had found in an article about the queen of england and the death of princess diana.


Too much attention to unhealthy fantasies of the psychos & lazy-bones. All attempts to desipher their criminal designs look like catching reflection of a sunbeam on the wall to their entertainment and satisfaction. I would place one more picture – simple and no less meaningful: wide steppe(prairie), a road through it from behind the horizon that ends up with the door across the road. A couple yards to the left and to the right from the door stretch remnants of the half-destroyed wall. A man in shabby clothes knelt before the door, sobbing…Inscription on the door reads " NO EXIT".


I read it then and to revist this today.

HOLY S--T! Event after event outlined..

-The piped piper is standing right next to Putin, because hes the only one who WANTS the syrian immigrants.
-James Cameron wants to take MILLIONS of funds form poor people which will disproportionately affect Black& Brown people
-The arrows were two fold, Nigeria had about 10 attacks this year with the first killing over 2000 ppl in early 1/15 then the Paris attacks. Only the Paris attacks have gotten world coverage.. of course.
-We got brand new chips in our credit cards, a more easily monitored and controlled way to track monies, hence the Phoenix on an "outsiders " head next to the man with virtual reality goggles. he's the next person in color.
-Angry globe: The east and west are certainly at odds, the black/brown man (brown eyes) and white man are certainly at odds this year. That angry globe has several meanings.
-We launched 2 intercontinental missiles this month. was this in response to Chinas threats to our treading around their islands?

Im quite worried about these missiles I must say


OMG.. did I really forget that James Cameron put his c--k in a dead pigs mouth.. LMAO


DAVID CAMERON!!!!!!!!!!!!


You forget to mention Merkel's hands doing the upside-down illuminati sign.

The Seer

Why has no one noticed…….?
Both Napoleon and Churchill are present……both leaders in times of massive war?


I do notice that, and I wonder why did they place Napoleon’s face there (too)…


Notice that German Chancellor Marcel is making the Pyramid with the Eye (button on her coat)


The Ghost holding the holiday brochure, could this be the recent Tunisia event.
Maybe the death of the holiday industry in general, people becoming to scared to go abroad.

korena sanchez

If we know the meanings. The question remains for us the masses, "What can we do?"
