There's no #economy when there are no humans left. We quadrupled in number in a century and the toll of #overpopulation isn't hard to see. Our economy's 'growth' depends on our very destruction. The mentality of cancer or Petri dishes.
 


While in the past transnational corporations were powerful actors, there were at least formal governors of national states; not anymore in the current ‘multi-stakeholder’ organization of globalization, as described by Harris Gleckman

First the Trump administration unilaterally smashed a multinational, UN-endorsed agreement, the JCPOA, or Iran nuclear deal. Now the waivers that magnanimously allowed eight nations to import oil from Iran without incurring imperial wrath in the form of sanctions will expire on May 2 and won’t be renewed.

QUOTE :
In footage reportedly shot in London last summer during a dinner with far-right European nationalists, Mr Bannon said Breitbart was in “tough financial shape” after seeing advertising revenues plummet "90 per cent".

He credited the slump to work done by campaign group Sleeping Giants, which pressures companies into cutting ties with media it deems to be racist or sexist.

Baron Rothschild: “the time to buy is when there’s blood in the streets.”

On Trump's current nominee for the Fed, Stephen Moore


On December 22nd Mr Moore said he thought the members of the Federal Reserve Board should be “thrown out for economic malpractice.” On March 13th he co-authored an opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal accusing the Fed of acting as an obstacle to American growth.

They're talking about this particular piece.

During the Obama administration he railed at the Fed for keeping interest rates too low, and also urged it to shrink the size of its balance sheet. But then he became an advisor to the Drumpf administration’s election campaign (he recently published a book entitled, “Trumponomics” with Arthur Laffer, an economist). And suddenly he turned from monetary policy hawk to dove. It appears his instincts are informed less by sound principles of economic policy than by whatever he thinks most likely to please Mr Drumpf.

US to cancel meeting when China bars Venezuelan interim leader Guaidó


Several sources familiar with the situation told Reuters that China - one of the Venezuelan government’s few remaining international allies - had proposed not inviting representatives from either the Maduro or Guaido camps to “de-politicize” the meeting.

But a senior official in President Donald Drumpf’s administration - which has backed Guaido as Venezuela’s legitimate ruler - said the United States and its regional allies would “pull quorum” from the meeting in Chengdu if Hausmann was excluded.

The United States is the IADB’s largest member country and has said that billions of dollars of financing from multilateral banks will be needed to rebuild Venezuela’s economy, which has been crippled by hyperinflation, food and medicine shortages and a collapse of the country’s power grid.

Amsterdam Says Newly Built Homes Aren't for Renting Out - CityLab

If you want to buy a new house in Amsterdam, you’ll have to actually live in it.

That’s the message from the Dutch capital as it prepares a new proposal to restrict sales of newly built housing to owner-occupiers, blocking out anyone who wants to buy the properties only to rent them out.

Rupert Murdoch's son Lachlan to succeed his father in leadership


Decades ago he was promised the mantle at Fox, but the company he will run is not what anyone expected, and disappointments have lined his path to this moment. Not only is Lachlan more distant from the White House than his hard-charging father, he will oversee a much smaller company — parent to Fox News, Fox Sports, Fox Entertainment and Fox TV Stations.

On the other side of the political spectrum, several Fox News staffers said they fear Lachlan is less loyal to the network than his father, who has always backed the cable channel without question. The opinionated, conservative faction of the company that supports Trump is already testing his authority.

The Murdochs agreed to the Disney offer as the Justice Department was fighting AT&T’s $85.4 billion acquisition of Time Warner. In contrast to the hostility Trump displayed toward that deal, Trump spoke to Rupert the day the Fox deal with Disney was announced and “congratulated him,” according to... Show more...

Former top political adviser to president Obama died aged 58


Alan Krueger, 58, died on Saturday, according to a university announcement. His family said in a statement: "It is with tremendous sadness we share that Professor Alan B. Krueger, beloved husband, father, son, brother, and Princeton professor of economics, took his own life over the weekend.

Krueger was chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under Obama from 2011 to 2013. In that role, he sought to draw attention to the problem of inequality and promote ways of increasing economic mobility.

"Alan was someone who was deeper than numbers on a screen and charts on a page," Obama said. "He saw economic policy not as a matter of abstract theories, but as a way to make people’s lives better."

What comes after Economic Bluegrass? - Investment education!


“The Ministry of Education will work to incorporate securities and futures knowledge in the curriculum to increase financial literacy [among young Chinese] in an innovative way,” Mr Gao said, without elaborating.

“I’d better take a finance refresher course,” one person said on microblogging site Weibo. “Otherwise I won’t be able to help with my son’s studies.”

Critics have said including investor education in primary and middle school classes encourages students to speculate on the stock market. But Guangzhou’s education bureau has defended the course offered in some of its schools, saying the aim is to provide students with financial knowledge. SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST

Donald Trump couldn't keep promise to create more jobs - the opposite became reality


Referring to his conversation with CEO Mary Barra, Drumpf added: “I asked her to sell it or do something quickly. She blamed the UAW union — I don’t care, I just want it open!” he tweeted.

This is about his entire presidency summed up in one sentence: He doesn't know what he's talking about, but he wants his commands to be executed blindfoldedly. Unfortunately, this is not how politics or economics work. He lacks the logic, but who's surprised about this? There's a reason why his companies all bankrupted.

The idling of the Lordstown plant is costing 1,500 jobs there. Since 2017, GM cut two of the three production shifts there, eliminating 3,000 jobs amid sagging demand for small cars. GM is continuing to produce the Cruze in Mexico for other markets, but not for the United States.

World’s shortest motorway built to shame a nation - BBC News

An entrepreneur has built a one-metre-long stretch of motorway in north-eastern Romania to protest about his country's poor highway infrastructure.

Fed up with the sparse motorway network in his home region of Moldavia, Stefan Mandachi, a 33-year-old who owns a chain of fast-food restaurants, privately commissioned the tiny motorway at a personal cost of £3,800 (€4,400; $5,000).

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos says giant online retailer will go bankrupt


(If I saw it correctly in the Google listing, it is not the first time he made this remark, although I really wonder why he says this - to shock the shareholders? To shock the customers? An early April Fools joke? No-one knows. Maybe he's going crazy, due to his rapid success.)
What might be even more alarming is that Bezos has been dumping roughly $1 billion worth of Amazon stock every year...

Yep, he's gone crazy. Must be the lack of hair, the sun burn right through his skull.

That’s because another company (less than 1/6th the size of Amazon)…is producing a component so powerful that it is absolutely annihilating the competition.

Also, I guess that the author of this article (See disclaimer below, in the link) fluently speaks Clickbait.
