The Bilderberg group is vast, expansive and incredibly influential, as a result they have been accused of numerous things by numerous people. Some of note include artifically causing the 1973 oil crisis which came about as discussions were held between the CEOs of Royal Dutch Shell, British Petroleum, Total S.A., ENI, Exxon which revolved around increasing the price of oil by 400% and stemming the flow of oil dollars, that the group had helped create the Euro, the currency of members of the European Union (EU), as was stated by Étienne Davignon in a 2009 interview for EUObserver, his statement is of note since he was a former member of the steering committee of Bilderberg.

The most explosive allegation is that the group is responsible for acts of false flag terrorism across the globe, which was claimed by many but the most noteworthy claim of this comes from Ferdinando Imposimato, the man who prosecuted the case involving the assassination attempt against Pope John Paul II - a full list of all of the people who have ever attended Bilderberg can be seen here.

To understand the full influence and control that the Bilderberg group has, I suggest analyzing the below map made in 2012 which illustrated the control that the steering committee of Bilderberg had at the time, and whilst many of these people are no longer on the committee they are still considered Bilderbergers and many still attend meetings to this very day.
