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.

Stricken

4/17/06 From The Lord, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

Thus says The Lord God: This #world is stricken, a corrupt #tree which bears only bitter #fruit! You have done this, O peoples of the #earth! You have done this, O #men of #power and #wealth, all you #people of excess! YOU HAVE DONE THIS! For the sake of #... Show more...
 

Charles Hugh Smith nails it

But all systems eventually track an S-Curve of rapid growth, maturation and depletion/decline, and surpluses diminish: the pie stops expanding and starts shrinking. There's less to go around, and suddenly the political squabbling intensifies as every elite and every constituency seeks to preserve their slice of the pie at the expense of others.

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.

WARNING: this rabbit hole is deep

The Spider’s Web: Britain’s Second Empire, is a documentary film that shows how Britain transformed from a colonial power into a global financial power. At the demise of empire, City of London financial interests created a web of secrecy jurisdictions that captured wealth from across the globe and hid it in a web of offshore islands. Today, up to half of global offshore wealth is hidden in British jurisdictions and Britain and its dependencies are the largest global players in the world of international finance.

Spanish far-right party Vox moves forward


After securing 12 seats in Andalusia on December 2 on a pro-Spanish unity and anti-immigration message, Vox got an early start on its campaign for regional and municipal elections in Madrid with a Sunday rally in Torrejón de Ardoz.

Vox’s choice of locations in Madrid is the result of lessons learned from the Andalusian election, where the party attracted nearly 400,000 votes (11% of the total), many of them in municipalities with large numbers of non-EU foreign residents, such as El Ejido, Algeciras or Níjar.

“My kids go to school with immigrant children, and the relationship is good,” says Ana Isabel Oliver, 39. Others who declined to provide their names said that “there are barely any Torrejón-born people left” in the neighborhood of San José because the latter sold their apartments and moved away when the migrants arrived.

Just as a thought experiment, I took the 400 richest Americans and 10 richest US companies and... "borrowed..." most of their wealth. I left each person with a net worth of $1.5 billion (US) and each company with $2.5 billion. I "took" $2.75 trillion from these 410 entities.

Then I used that money to pay off all the student loans ($1 trillion), all the auto loans ($770 billion), all the credit cards ($670 billion). This left $310 billion in my little pot of money. After spending this on mortgages, the use had about $7.7 trillion in mortgages remaining plus about $870 billion in other debt, or about $8.6 trillion total consumer debt.

This means that robbing 400 individuals and 10 companies down to a modest level of wealth was enough to pay off 24% of all US consumer debt. 410 entities meant no more credit card, student loan, or car loan debts. And it left those 410 entities with more than enough cash on hand to survive any reasonable business or personal goals.

Can you imagine how much of an impact this would have on the US economy? Can you imagi... Show more...

But money isn't everything- cost of living is not factored in. My friends from #Utah are blown away by some of the real estate available here in Alabama. Utah home prices are moving north into Kalifornia-esq values. A 3 bed 1 ba home in a nice northern Utah town can fetch $200k, while in #Alabama, you can buy a grand southern bell home for the same price an hour from the beach. Meanwhile, our " #republican " #representatives here in AL are trying to figure out a way to get themselves #voted out of office over a #gas #tax increase. Their defense is "we haven't had a gas tax increase in years". So, raise taxes because "it's been a while" is their defense.

Bank of England freezes Maduro's/Venezuela's wealth assets


The move by the Bank of England came after top U.S. officials urged the British government to help cut off Maduro's access to his country's assets, the report said, and instead steer them towards opposition leader Juan Guaido, who has claimed the presidency.

"We stand shoulder to shoulder with the United States in saying that the National Assembly and its President Juan Guaidó are best placed to lead Venezuela to the restoration of its democracy, its economy and its freedom," said UK Minister of State Alan Duncan.

In reality, the likelihood of reaching the pinnacle of capitalist society today is only marginally better than were the chances of being accepted into the French nobility four centuries ago, though at least an aristocratic age was franker, and therefore kinder, about the odds. It did not relentlessly play up the possibilities open to all, … and so, in turn, did not cruelly equate an ordinary life with a failed one.
Alain de Botton (b. 1969) Swiss-British author
The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work, ch. 9 “Entrepreneurship” (2009)
