SOMETHING YOUR TOUR GUIDE MIGHT NOT TELL YOU

The heart of NYC’s Financial District is built on a huge 18th century African Burial Ground. Some 419 Africans were discovered in 1991, a large portion women and children.

The burial ground extends from Broadway Southward under City Hall, and almost to the site of the former World Trade Center. It is believed that there are as many as 20,000 slavery-era Africans in graves under the buildings in Lower Manhattan.

Abolish historical amnesia and ponder for a moment the fact that this financial epicenter of the world is built on slavery, oppression, and death.

During the course of the show, they have a very wise discussion of the possible reasons so many #WhitePeople joined #BlackPeople in the #BlackLivesMatter protests. It's all sound reasoning. It's not what my point it though, but the details they discuss will be w

As the #financial world hits another #crisis over #coronavirus, it's amusing to read, again, side by side headlines of "danger of economic slowdown" and "climate change will put us all at risk".

Could #humanity decide whether we want a #future or lots of shiny things, please?

Repeat after me:

We need to downscale the economy.

We need to downscale the economy.

We need to downscale the economy.

We need to downscale the economy.

We need to downscale the economy.

Proponents of the development of quantum computers state that #quantum #computer #technology could lead to breakthroughs in #self-learning #artificial #intelligence ( #AI), provide #medical insights by #simulating incredibly complex #biological molecules, manage #financial #risk at banks…

It will also be able to #simultaneously break all existing #cryptographic keys while setting the stage for #uncrackable quantum #encryption. Exactly this point is why many nations--led by the #U.S. and #China--have taken a strong #interest in quantum computing.

Das Zweite Britische Empire (Deutsch)

Beim Untergang des Empires wurde ein weltweites Netz von Offshore-Gebieten geschaffen, um die finanziellen Interessen der City of London zu bewahren. Deren Zweck? Das Verbergen enormen Vermögens hinter obskuren finanziellen Strukturen auf entfernten Inseln. Heute liegt bis zur Hälfte des globalen Offshore-Vermögens in britischen Offshore-Territorien.
Wie ist das zustande gekommen? Welchen Einfluss hat die Offshore-Welt heute auf uns alle? Dieser Dokumentarfilm erforscht und ermittelt dies auf eindrückliche Weise.

The #United #States holds the most #debt of any country in the history of the world. In fairness, when our debt-to-GDP ratio is factored in, there are many countries in far more perilous #economic situations than the U.S. But there will come a tipping point.

So, it’s still very important. At the same time, the U.S. dollar hegemony is probably not going to last forever . . . So, I think the long term dollar looks very weak. Sho... Show more...

#Facebook is pushing to gain #access to your #banking #data and other #sensitive #financial #information.

"The site has joined a growing race among big technology companies seeking private information once regarded as off-limits: users' checking-account balances, recent credit card transactions and other facts of their personal finances and everyday lives."

Time and time again Facebook exercises its relentless pursuit of its users personal, and now their banking, information. How brainwashed are these people?! If it not that, then I don't get whats wrong with these people.
