How big are the buyer and renter gains from SB 827? Marginal REVOLUTION

This article considers a counterfactual thought experiment: how would Californias housing market be different today if a policy currently under consideration in the California SenateSB 827, which would allow new residential building along public transit corridorshad been implemented six years ago? I estimate that rent would be 5.8 percent lower in San Francisco, a savings of $266 per month on the median home, and 4.2 percent lower in Los Angeles County, savings of $124 per month.

That is from Salim Furth at Mercatus, here is much more.  You will note those numbers do not include the higher output and innovation from a more efficient allocation of talent.

Washington, D.C. fact of the day Marginal REVOLUTION

The National African Art Museum has a problem:

Attendance dropped to 159,000 last year from a high of 403,000 in 2009, when there was a special exhibition. Last years number is 43 percent below the 10-year average.

One of the under-reported stories about D.C. is how much the citys art museums have faded as intellectual and cultural centers for the city.  This seems to be extreme for the African museum, perhaps because of urban gentrification, and perhaps because the African museum has an especially hard time mounting blockbuster exhibits famous to the public eye.  Prince Twins Seven Seven just isnt as famous as he ought to be.

In the meantime, you all have the internet to keep you busy.

CBOs Economic Outlook: Four Takeaways Concord Coalition

CBOs Economic Outlook: Four Takeaways swinn Tue, 04/17/2018 - 10:09

As Congress and President Trump agreed in the last few months to dramatically increase federal borrowing, there have been a lot of breezy assurances that rapid and sustained economic growth will take care of everything.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) offers a more thoughtful -- and more troubling -- economic analysis as part of its recently released Budget and Economic Outlook: 2018 to 2028. Four key takeaways from that analysis:

1. Washington should not count on economic growth as a panacea for the nations fiscal and demographic challenges. That is true even after taking into account the fiscal stimulus of deficit-financed tax cuts and deficit-financed spending increases.

Instead of forecasting large, steady increases in growth, the CBOs projections show the economy following a marked cyclical path over the next decade.

The growth of real (inflation-adjusted) GDP is projected to be relatively strong this year and next and then to moderate, the budget office says. Over the coming decade, it projects that actual as well as potential output (the maximum sustainable output of the economy) will expand at an average annual rate of only 1.9 percent -- largely unchanged over the long-term and hardly the answer to all our problems.

Meanwhile, CBO projects, the federal government will be adding nearly $12.42 trillion to the federal debt over the next decade.

Critics of the CBO say it is too pessimistic, but the budget office presents some persuasive arguments for its projections.

Its report points out, for example, that the growth of the labor force will be constrained by ongoing retirements in the baby boom generation. Labor force growth is a key factor in the projected growth of potential GDP. Between 1950 and 2017 it grew at an average of 1.4 percent annually, but in 2018-2028, CBO projects it will grow at just 0.5 percent annually.

Moreover, from 2020 to 2026, CBO says, a number of factors dampen economic growth: higher interest rates and prices, slower growth in federal outlays, and the expiration of reductions in personal income tax rates.

Another reason to question complaints that CB...

The Crisis Is Only In Its Beginning Stages PaulCraigRoberts.org

The Crisis Is Only In Its Beginning Stages

Paul Craig Roberts

Many, including Russias President Putin, have asked why the US launched an illegal attack on Syria prior to the chemical weapons inspectors examining the site of the alleged chemical attack.

This popular question completely misses the point. The US attack on Syria is a clear and indisputable war crime against a sovereign country regardless of whether Syria used a chemical weapon in driving the Washington supported terrorists from Douma. No one acted to stop Washingtons war crime. Some of Washingtons vassals, such as Germany and Italy, refused to participate in Washingtons war crime, but no one attempted to block it. The impotent UN Security Council, to which Russia is wasting its time appealing, the EU, NATO, Russia and China themselves did nothing to stop Washingtons Nazi era war crime.

Russia said that if Washingtons attack harmed its citizens, there would be military consequences, but Russia did not protect its ally Syria from the attack.

Perhaps it doesnt matter as Washingtons attack was carefully conducted so as to have no effect except to serve as a face-saver for Trump. Apparently no one was killed and no damage was done to anything real except to a facility in which anti-venom for snake bites was being produced.

On the other hand, it does matter, because of the perception that the American presstitutes have created that it was a great victory for America over the evil Syrian government and the evil Russian government that supports them. This perception, which the presstitutes have created with their fake news, justifies the war crime and will lead to more attacks on Syria.

It is unlikely that the UN Security Council will condemn Washington, which pays 25% of the UNs budget. Moreover, the Security Council is loaded up with Washingtons vassals, and they will not vote to censure their liegelord. Putin is wasting his time taking the matter to the Security Council, unless his purpose is to prove that every Western institution is completely corrupt. As most informed people already know this, I dont understand the point of proving the known. Putin should read Eric Zuesses article before he puts too much faith in the UN. https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/04/17/how-us-has-virtually-destroyed-un.html

As I have written on a number of occasions, I admire Putins Christian character of sidestepping the beatings he continuously takes from Washington in order to save the world from the massive deaths of a world war. The problem is that by turning the other cheek, Putin encourages more aggression from Washington. Putin is dealing with neoconservative psychopaths. He is not dealing with common sense.

Trillions and Trillions in Deficits Concord Coalition

Trillions and Trillions in Deficits swinn Tue, 04/17/2018 - 09:36

Guests on Facing the Future last week lamented new projections of trillion-dollar federal deficits beginning in Fiscal 2020 and discussed how recent tax and spending decisions had contributed to the problem.

The distressing thing about the deficit situation now is that its large and its unwarranted, said Diane Lim during the radio shows 10th program. Lim is a principal economist at The Conference Board.

We are at full employment, or very close to full employment, Lim said. We are certainly not an economy in recession. And there is no evidence that we need cuts in marginal tax rates to spur the supply side of the economy either.

She added: I think its very telling that politicians keep proposing things that have political appeal because they involve deficit-financing, and they dont have to talk about offsetting tax increases or spending cuts.

The new projections were released last week by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) in its Budget and Economic Outlook: 2018 to 2028.

I never thought I would see trillion-dollar deficits every year for as far as the eye can see, said Robert L. Bixby, executive director of The Concord Coalition.

He noted on the program that the budget office is not that optimistic about the effects of the tax cuts. Bixby added: The trade-off here, according to CBOs numbers, is you get a sudden shot of adrenaline from the tax cut, and then the increased debt and drag on the economy goes back into place.

Bixby said that although recent legislation has made matters worse, those laws were not the sole driver of the nations debt and deficit problems.

I dont look at it as Do we have a spending problem or do we have a revenue problem? Bixby said. We have a budget problem. Were not paying for the size government that we have voted for.

He said automatic spending programs like Social Security and Medicare were a critical concern: They grow because there are more beneficiaries and they grow because it costs more to provide health care for those beneficiaries.

Lim said she was concerned about the trajectory of the national debt, whi...

Famed British War Reporter On Site: No Chlorine Attack In DoumaIt Was Hypoxia (Oxygen Loss) David Stockman's Contra Corner

It was a short walk to Dr Rahaibani. From the door of his subterranean clinicPoint 200, it is called, in the weird geology of this partly-underground cityis a corridor leading downhill where he showed me his lowly hospital and the few beds where a small girl was crying as nurses treated a cut above her eye.

I was with my family in the basement of my home three hundred metres from here on the night but all the doctors know what happened. There was a lot of shelling [by government forces] and aircraft were always over Douma at nightbut on this night, there was wind and huge dust clouds began to come into the basements and cellars where people lived. People began to arrive here suffering from hypoxia, oxygen loss. Then someone at the door, a White Helmet, shouted Gas!, and a panic began. People started throwing water over each other. Yes, the video was filmed here, it is genuine, but what you see are people suffering from hypoxianot gas poisoning.

Britain passes a major milestone on pay and breaks new ground on jobs but theres a productivity sting Resolution Foundation

This morning UK labour market passed a few living standards milestones on pay and jobs with two good pieces of news, one expected and one a surprise. We also got a hint of more good news to come. But we also got one bit of bad news. Lets start with the good.

Today pay growth turned positive for the first time in 12 months. Following the devaluation of the pound in the wake of the referendum vote UK pay packets have been squeezed. Rising inflation which rose to 3 per cent in late 2017 coupled with sluggish pay growth meant that average weekly pay had been falling since February 2017. Today we learnt that the squeeze came to an end with positive pay growth of 0.2 per cent in the year to February 2018. Real pay growth is expected to strengthen over the course of the year too.

While it was expected that pay growth would turn positive this month (as our pay projection last month predicted) we also had an unexpected rise in employment and a fall in unemployment in todays stats. Employment rose to a new high of 75.4 per cent and unemployment fell to 4.2 per cent as 55,000 more people moved into work.

We should see more good news on jobs in the months ahead too. The headline unemployment and employment figures are three-month averages based on single-month rates and today the single-month estimates moved sharply. Februarys employment figure is 76 per cent and unemployment is 4 per cent. Next month, once the relatively weak December figures fall out of the three-month average, we could break new records on employment highs and unemployment lows.

This news is very welcome, but we shouldnt get too carried away, at least where pay growth is concerned. Whether or not the pay squeeze has ended depends on where you look. Pay growth is much stronger in the private than the public sector with growth of 0.3 per cent compared to a fall of -0.2 per cent. And while pay in parts of the private sector finance, construction and real estate is gro...

The Work of the 21st Century Stories by umair haque on Medium

Three Levels of Work the World Needs Now

So. What should we be working on, anyways?

Its one of the first questions I get asked. My answer goes something like this.

There are two kinds of work we can be doing today. We can be agents of regression, working to pull the world backwards, downwards, inwards. We can fuel a slide into neofeudalism, peasantry, extremism, bitter division, and authoritarianism. You dont have to think very hard to come up with organizations that fit that bill, do you?

Or we can be agents of motion. Upwards, outwards, forwards. We can create a better future for ourselves, our grandkids, all those who will inherit the world we leave behind. You are quite right to say that this kind of work brings with it greater responsibility, and more risk. But it also offers lasting self-realization, self-knowledge, self-discoverthat is its gift and reward, where the first kind of work only holds the promise of staying on top of old heirarchies of domination and power, and we will come back to that. So the work of today is really at root the work of meaning, happiness, purpose, and freedom. Creating it. Igniting it. Sparking it.

Where does all that come from? I think about work in three levels. None of its about the old stufftechnical mastery, analytical skills, networking, etcetera. Bzzzt. Obsolete. The work were going to have do this century is newand very old. Its timelessand timely. And its profoundly humanizing and meaningfulnot dehumanizing, exploitative, and pointless.

The first level is the simplest. This is a troubled age. The old world is breaking apart. Heres a tiny list of global problems. Inequality, stagnation, despair, loneliness, disconnection, mistrust, inopportunity, imbalances in power and agency. Are you solving any of those problems, the big and nasty ones, with the work that you do? Directly, passionately, immediatelygenuinely? Or are you just vaguely hoping mostly as a PR exercise that as some third-order indirect consequence of what you do, those problems will one day in some distant future maybe, possibly, shrink a little bit? Like, say, all those I-want-my-mommy apps, the ones that do your laundry and deliver your desinger donuts, and cry but were saving gas!. Sure, but only at the price of an imploding society, of inequality, loneliness, mistrust, and despair. Do you see how on balance, those probably fuel regress and collapse, where genuine problem-solving does the opposite?

Work today really means something, as it always has, if we are solving problems. If we are not, then the inconvenient truth is that the work we are doing is meaninglessits not work at all.

Which is the most ideologically diverse American city? Marginal REVOLUTION

When I requested requests, Jimmy wrote back:

(1) Conversations with Tyler featuring an actual Straussian.

(2) What is the most ideologically / politically diverse city? Which most moderate in that regard? Where in America am I least likely to be in a bubble and why?

I have several nominations for #2:

1. Houston. It still has plenty of Texas conservatives, but enough non-conservatives to elect a lesbian mayor.  Mexicans fit along a political spectrum of their own.

2. Washington, D.C. and environs. The intellectual class in this city is about half conservative/Republican/libertarian and always will be just dont think too hard about who actually lives here!  Most of all, everyone is used to the fact that there are oodles and oodles of forces on the other side of the debate.  No one flips out over this.  Even the media types have a reasonable amount of non-left representation.

3. Chicago. Its presence in the Midwest moderates its left flank, there is a diverse mix of ethnic groups, and the city has lots of Midwestern civic virtue.  Real estate prices have stayed relatively low, so not all blue collar and working class types have been driven out.  Old Chicago is still up and running to some extent.

Thats the national capital, plus two of the five largest cities.  And Ive already argued that, in a Straussian sense, Los Angeles is the most right wing city in the United States.  Orange County is ideologically diverse as well.  In other words, urban American is doing pretty well on intellectual diversity once you get out of (parts of) Manhattan and San Francisco and Seattle.

San Antonio measures as quite moderate, but is neither typical nor extremely diverse.  Here are some basic data, Nashville, Wichita, and Las Vegas also measure in the middle, and of those Las Vegas seems most diverse to me rather than simply dull.

Which place in the country is the least likely to leave you trapped in an intellectual bubble?  Somewhere in Ohio?  Columbus or Cincinnati?  Knoxville, Tennessee?  Louisville?  Kansas City, MO?  In those locales you truly are confronted with the everyday problems of regular American life and you are not obsessing over either crypto or what just passed through the subcommittee.

Just days after Elon Musk gave a softball interview to CBS This Morning explaining Teslas efforts to boost Model 3 production to Musks target of 2,000 a week (down from the 5,000 a week he had initially promised), Buzzfeed News is reporting that the company is temporarily shutting down production of its Model 3 sedan to improve automation.

Of course, this comes after Musk famously claimed Tesla was relying too heavily on robots to run its assembly line (a sentiment he echoed in his CBS interview) and that this was at the root of the companys production hell.

Richest 1% on target to own two-thirds of all wealth by 2030 Follow The Money

https://www.theguardian.com/business/2018/apr/07/global-inequality-tipping-point-2030

The worlds richest 1% are on course to control as much as two-thirds of the worlds wealth by 2030, according to a shocking analysis that has lead to a cross-party call for action.

World leaders are being warned that the continued accumulation of wealth at the top will fuel growing distrust and anger over the coming decade unless action is taken to restore the balance.

An alarming projection produced by the House of Commons library suggests that if trends seen since the 2008 financial crash were to continue, then the top 1% will hold 64% of the worlds wealth by 2030. Even taking the financial crash into account, and measuring their assets over a longer period, they would still hold more than half of all wealth.

Since 2008, the wealth of the richest 1% has been growing at an average of 6% a year much faster than the 3% growth in wealth of the remaining 99% of the worlds population. Should that continue, the top 1% would hold wealth equating to $305tn (216.5tn) ...

The future fiscal cost of Generation Rent Resolution Foundation

The future fiscal cost of Generation Rent

For most people the lions share of their income is spent housing and so forking out on accommodation when no longer earning would seem like a tall order for many. The vast majority of retired people own their own home and so have relatively low housing costs, however a significant minority (around 23 per cent) rent and many of these people have some or all of their housing costs paid by the state.

Housing benefit helps those in private and social rented accommodation. People who own their own home and those who have assets worth more than 16,000, and who are not eligible for Pension Credit, do not receive housing benefit. Furthermore, those in institutional accommodation (care homes) also do not qualify. Last year 1.3 million pensioners claimed housing benefit, amounting to 6.3 billion.

How much well have to spend on housing benefit for those in retirement in future depends on a number of things, including the size of the pensioner population, their income, and what type of accommodation they live in. So far most analysis has focused on the impact that an ageing population could have on the housing benefit bill. The Department for Work and Pensions and the Office for Budget Responsibilitys own analysis, last carried out in early 2017, suggests that an older population will mean more pensioners claiming housing benefit, but that spending will fall as a proportion of GDP. However aside from some analysis by the Strategic Society Centre less attention has been paid to the possible impact of changing tenure patterns. Indeed the governments own analysis assumes that the tenure patterns of the future pensioners will be much the same as for the current generation.

However, previous work for the Intergenerational Commission has suggested that this may not be the case. Younger generations are finding it a lot harder to get on the housing ladder and it is uncertain if the low homeownership rates for younger people will be reversed over the next decade, even if some of these people will inherit property wealth from their parents. Our estimates suggest that if recent conditions persist as few as 47 per cent of millennials (those born between 1981 and 2000) may own their own home by the time they reach 45. Some of the remaining 53 per cent may inherit property wealth that they can use to get on the housing ladder, b...

Comeau Case Decision The Past Speaks

On 19 April, the Supreme Court of Canada will announce its decision in the constitutional case of the Queen v. Comeau, which deals with the legitimacy of interprovincial trade barriers in Canada. As long time readers of this blog will know, I was the expert witness who testified at the 2015 lower court case that was the basis of the appeal now being considered by the Supreme Court.

Here is a backgrounder for people outside of Canada.

Canadas subnational governments, the provinces, impose many restrictions on interprovincial trade that are protectionist in intent and effect. (Canada isnt the only country to have such internal trade barriersee here for a gateway into the academic literature on this subject).  Canadas internal trade barriers appear to conflict with section 121 of the 1867 Canadian constitution, which explicitly provides for free trade between Canadian provinces. This constitution is the British North America Act, 1867 (UK), which was retroactively renamed the Constitution Act, 1867 by the Constitution Act, 1982 . [Most academic historians continue to refer to the text by its historical name]. Since I wrote a PhD thesis and book on the political economy of the 1867 constitution, I am considered to be well qualified to speak about the motivations of the creators of section 121. You can read the expert witness report I wrote for the Comeau case here.

I believe that section 121 was included in the Canadian constitution because the framers of this document wanted the new Dominion of Canada to be a single market without fetters on interprovincial trade. These framers included the Fathers of Confederation- a group of British North American politicians- as well some senior British politicians (especially the Earl of Carnarvon but also Adderley, Watkin, and others), and a handful of very accomplished civil servants and lawyers in London.

150 years later, trade barriers are still in place. For those who dont wish to read my entire e...

America FirstR.I.P. David Stockman's Contra Corner

When the Cold War officially ended in 1991, Washington could have pivoted back to the pre-1914 status quo ante. That is, to a national security policy of America First because there was literally no significant military threat left on the planet.

Post-Soviet Russia was an economic basket case that couldnt even meet its military payroll and was melting down and selling the Red Armys tanks and artillery for scrap. China was just emerging from the Great Helmsmans economic, political and cultural depredations and had embraced Deng Xiaoping proclamation that to get rich is glorious.

The implications of the Red Armys fiscal demise and Chinas electing the path of export mercantilism and Red Capitalism were profound.

Russia couldnt invade the American homeland in a million years and China chose the route of flooding America with shoes, sheets, shirts, toys and electronics. So doing, it made the rule of the communist elites in Beijing dependent upon keeping the custom of 4,000 Wal-Marts in America, not bombing them out of existence.

In a word, gods original gift to Americathe great moats of the Atlantic and Pacific oceanshad again become the essence of its national security.

After 1991, therefore, there was no nation on the planet that had the remotest capability to mount a conventional military assault on the U.S. homeland; or that would not have bankrupted itself attempting to create the requisite air and sea-based power projection capabilitiesa resource drain that would be vastly larger than even the $700 billion the US currently spends on its global armada.

Indeed, in the post-cold war world the only thing the US needed was a modest conventional capacity to defend the shorelines and airspace against any possible rogue assault and a reliable nuclear deterrent against any state foolish enough to attempt nuclear blackmail.

Needless to say, those capacities had already been bought and paid for during the cold war. The triad of  minutemen ICBMs, Trident SLBMs (submarines launched nuclear missiles) and long-range stealth bombers cost only a few ten billions annually for operations and maintenance and were more than adequate for the task of deterrence.

Likewise, conventional defense of the U.S. shoreline and airspace against rogues would not require a fraction of todays 1.3 million active uniformed forceto say nothing of the 800,000 additional reserves and national guard forces and  the 765,000 DOD civilians on top of that. Rather than funding 2.9 million personnel, the whole job of national security under a homeland-based America First concept could be done with less than 500,000 military and civilian payroll...

The impact of the Dodd-Frank Act on small business Marginal REVOLUTION

There are concerns that the Dodd-Frank Act (DFA) has impeded small business lending. By increasing the fixed regulatory compliance requirements needed to make business loans and operate a bank, the DFA disproportionately reduced the incentives for all banks to make very modest loans and reduced the viability of small banks, whose small-business share of C&I loans is generally much higher than that of larger banks. Despite an economic recovery, the small loan share of C&I loans at large banks and banks with $300 or more million in assets has fallen by 9 percentage points since the DFA was passed in 2010, with the magnitude of the decline twice as large at small banks. Controlling for cyclical effects and bank size, we find that these declines in the small loan share of C&I loans are almost all statistically attributed to the change in regulatory regime. Examining Federal Reserve survey data, we find evidence that the DFA prompted a relative tightening of bank credit standards on C&I loans to small versus large firms, consistent with the DFA inducing a decline in small business lending through loan supply effects. We also empirically model the pace of business formation, finding that it had downshifted around the time when the DFA and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act were announced. Timing patterns suggest that business formation has more recently ticked higher, coinciding with efforts to provide regulatory relief to smaller banks via modifying rules implementing the DFA. The upturn contrasts with the impact of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which appears to persistently restrain business formation.

That is from Michael D. Bordo and John V. Duca.

California senate committee caves to pressure from ISPs, calls for amendments to water down SB 822 bill to restore net neutrality Fight for the Future

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 16, 2018
Contact: Evan Greer, 978-852-6457, press@fightforthefuture.org

A key California Senate committee released its analysis of SB 822, California State Senator Scott Wieners bill to comprehensively restore the 2015 net neutrality protections that the FCC voted to abolish in 2017. The analysis is a frontal assault on net neutrality. Sadly, the analysis from the Senate Committee on Energy, Utilities and Communications looks like ISPs wrote it and shows that ISPs have a powerful corrupting influence even in the Democratic-controlled legislature in California.

Its outrageous that California democrats would produce a document that looks like it was literally written by lobbyists for AT&T and Comcast. Theyre calling for giant loopholes that would gut SB 822 and leave California residents vulnerable to ISP scams and abuses, said Evan Greer, deputy director of Fight for the Future, a digital rights group with more than 350,000 members in California, These senators need to know that the entire Internet is watching them, and will not forget if they side with giant telecom monopolies over the basic rights of their constituents.

The legislative analysis, which comes a day before the bills hearing, recommends gutting key protections, opening up two huge and known loopholes that will allow ISPs to get around net neutrality protections.

Specifically the analysis finds that:

1) ISPs should be allowed to charge, block or slow down websites or services at the point of interconnection, where data that ISP subscribers request from online services enter the ISPs network, and

2) That ISPs should be allowed to create all manners of zero-rating plans, including not counting data from an ISPs own services against users data caps or charging online sites so that their data doesnt count against user data caps.

Interconnection:

- After the 2010 order came out, ISPs realized they could block, throttle and charge online services by simply not increasing the size of the pipes coming into their networks and waiting for online services to pay them to open them. That meant that the services that ISP subscribers wanted to use would simply not work or be very slow despite paying their ISP to use any and all applications on the internet.

- This behavior was so widespread that it affected tens of millions of Americans who couldnt understand why, despite paying for an expensive fast connection, they couldnt telecommute or play League of Legends online. New Yorks Attorney General is suing TimeWarner Cable for lying to subscribers by promising them fast online videos and gaming, while secretly making sure those services went slowly

- This slowness would stop only if online companies paid the ISPs ransom. For t...

South-Side Co-op was a Sanctuary for Black Chicagoans in the 1960s Grassroots Economic Organizing

Its no secret that Chicago, one of the most segregated cities in the nation, has an ugly history of housing discrimination. Before the federal Fair Housing Act passed in April 1968 50 years ago people of color were frequently, and flagrantly, prohibited from renting, buying or financing homes in areas where the population was mostly white.

Right before the acts passage, some black Chicagoans found homes, and refuge, in a housing cooperative on the citys South Side. Griffin moved into London Towne Houses Cooperative, in the Pullman community area, in 1967.

JoAnn Kenner, 73, current president of London Towne Houses, also has lived in the community since 67. In the years before fair housing laws, the mentality around integrated communities, Kenner said, was as in the play A Raisin in the Sun Even if you were able to get a mortgage and someone would sell you a house, if you were nonwhite, the neighborhood was not going to be welcoming.

London was like a breath of fresh air, it was like living in the suburbs, she said. Like a little bedroom community. This was a tremendous source of pride for residents, Kenner said, people were begging to get in.

No to the violence of the State against the commons! Grassroots Economic Organizing

Pierre Dardot and Christian Laval: The violent destruction of the commons of the ZAD (Zone To Defend) of Notre-Dame-des-Landes by the French government is an infamous and revolting act. The current police offensive, led by several thousand gendarmes and CRS equipped with armored vehicles and helicopters is only the exercise of the purest State violence against a set of collective practices that are in progress or in preparation. This includes their fragile material conditions (buildings, meeting places, work tools, herds), and they  are now destroyed by bulldozers and police squads.

Since the first day of assault on the ZAD of Notre-Dame-des-Landes, the destruction of the farm of the Cents Noms was a true declaration of social and political war. The destruction of this place was by no means imperative given the criteria invoked by the government in its communication. Nicole Klein, Prefect of Loire Region, justifies the police operation by claiming that the Cents Noms had not submitted an agricultural project. This is obviously false: the inhabitants of this farm were carrying an alternative agricultural project and some of them had submitted a request for regularization.

Once Upon A Time Long Ago Truth Was Important PaulCraigRoberts.org

Once Upon A Time Long Ago Truth Was Important

Paul Craig Roberts

I wonder how many people, not just Americans but those in other countries, have come to the conclusion that the United States today is a less free and less aware society than the societies in the dystopian novels of the 20th century or in movies such as The Matrix and V for Vendetta. Just as people in the dystopian novels had no idea of their real situation, few Americans do either.

What are we to make of the extraordinary war crimes committed by the United States in the 21st century that have destroyed in whole or part seven countries, resulting in millions of dead, maimed, orphaned, and displaced peoples? Consider, for example, the latest Washington war crime, the illegal attack on Syria. Instead of protesting this illegality, the American media egged it on, cheering impending death and destruction.

During the entirety of the 21st century, Israel, Washingtons only allyas contrasted with the European, Canadian, Australian, and Japanese vassal states of Washingtons empirehas continued with Washingtons support, protection, and encouragement the genocide of the Palestinian people. Essentially, all that is left of Palestine is a ghetto concentration camp known as Gaza which is routinely bombed by Israel using weapons and money supplied by Washington. When a bombing of Gaza is announced, Gods Chosen People take their lawn chairs and picnics up on a hill overlooking Gaza and applaud as the Israeli military murders women and children. This is Americas only ally.

The crimes committed by the US and Israel are horrific, but meet with little opposition. In contrast, an alleged attack in which 70 Syrians are alleged to have died sets in motion the wheels of war. It makes no sense whatsoever. Israel routinely bombs Syrian targets, killing Syrians, and the US arms and supports the rebels that the Obama regime sent to overthrow Assad, resulting in large numbers of dead Syrians. Why all of a sudden do 70 Syrians matter to Washington?

According to the Washington authorities, or to the presstitutes reports of their statements, two or three alleged Syrian chemical weapons facilities were destroyed by Washingtons missile attack. Think about this for a minute. If Washington bombed or sent missiles into chemical weapons facilities, a vast cloud of lethal gas would have been released. The civilian casualties would be many times higher than the claimed 70 victims of Assads alleged and unsubstantiated chemical attack used as the pretext for the Trump regimes war crime against Syria. There is no evidence whatsoever of these casualties.

Had there been casualties, Washingtons attack would obviously be a far greater crime than the chemical attack that Washington used as cover for its own crime. Yet the American presstitutes are crowing over the lesson that America has taught Syria and Russia. Apparently, the American media cons...

The Facebook Trials: Its Not Our Data Marginal REVOLUTION

Facebook, Google and other tech companies are accused of stealing our data or at least of using it without our permission to become extraordinarily rich. Now is the time, say the critics, to stand up and take back our data. Ours, ours, ours.

In this way of thinking, our data is like our lawnmower and Facebook is a pushy neighbor who saw that our garage door was open, took our lawnmower, made a quick buck mowing peoples lawns, and now refuses to give our lawnmower back. Take back our lawnmower!

The reality is far different.

What could be more ours than our friends? Yet I have hundreds of friends on Facebook, most of whom I dont know well and have never met. But my Facebook friends are friends. We share common interests and, most of the time, Im happy to see what they are thinking and doing and Im pleased when they show interest in what Im up to. If, before Facebook existed, I had been asked to list my friends, I would have had a hard time naming ten friends, let alone hundreds. My Facebook friends didnt exist before Facebook. My Facebook friendships are not simply my datathey are a unique co-creation of myself, my friends, and, yes, Facebook.

Some of my Facebook friends are family, but even here the relationships are not simply mine but a product of myself and Facebook. My cousin who lives in Dubai, for example, is my cousin whether Facebook exists or not, but I havent seen him in over twenty years, have never written him a letter, have never in that time shared a phone call. Nevertheless, I can tell you about the bike accident, the broken arm, the X-ray with more than a dozen screwsI know about all of this only because of Facebook. The relationship with my cousin, therefore, isnt simply mine, its a joint creation of myself, my cousin and Facebook.

Facebook hasnt taken our datathey have created it.

Facebook and Google have made billions in profits, but its utterly false to think that we, the users, have not been compensated. Have you checked the price of a Facebook post or a Google search recently? More than 2 billion people use Facebook every month, none are charged. Google performs more than 3.5 billion searches every day, all for free. The total surplus created by Facebook and Google far exceeds their profits.

Moreover, its the prospect of profits that has led Facebook and Google to invest in the technology and tools that have created our data. The more difficult it is to profit from data, the less data there will be. Proposals to require data to be portable miss this important point. Try making your Facebook graph portable before joining Facebook.

None of this means that we should not be concerned with how data,...

Benjamin Fulford: Revolution may start in France as crazy Zionists try yet again to start WW3 The Event Chronicle

By Benjamin Fulford

The insane religious-fanatic Zionists who have been trying for years to start Armageddon have failed yet again in their latest attempt, this time in Syria.  They now face serious repercussions, possibly starting with a revolution in France.

Before we get into the details, lets remember what it is were dealing with here.  It is difficult for sane, reality-based people to understand that the Western political and financial establishment has been hijacked by religious fanatics who are trying to carry out their interpretation of Biblical prophecy with the murder of 90% of humanity and the enslavement of the survivors.  Nonetheless, overwhelming evidence shows this is exactly what is going on.

We will not lay out, yet again, all the evidence here;  we will just look at what U.S. President Donald Trumps son-in-law Jared Kushner has been up to.  The Kushner family bought a building on 666 Fifth Avenue in New York at way above market prices.
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/06/nyregion/kushners-vornado-666-fifth-avenue.html

And yes, despite a major attempt to scrub this information from non-conspiracy websites, we can confirm that Lucent Technologies was based there and was developing an implantable RFID chip.  Here is an article from a science magazine about what these chips are intended for:
https://www.popsci.com/my-boring-cyborg-implant

We must also remind ourselves that Kushner is a member of the radical Chabad sect that aims to have 2,800 slaves for each of its followers after the rest of humanity is killed.  In other words, it is possible to factually confirm that the son-in-law of the president of the United States is part of a group that is trying to actually turn the following Biblical prophecy into reality:

Revelation 13:16-18
Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or t...

Study Shows Cognitive Gains from Meditation Training Maintained Seven Years Later The Event Chronicle

Study Shows Cognitive Gains from Meditation Training Maintained Seven Years Later

By Josh Richardson

Gains in the ability to sustain attention developed through intensive meditation training are maintained up to seven years later, according to a new study published in the Journal of Cognitive Enhancement.

Regular meditation effectively supports mental, emotional and physical health in numerous tangible ways. Several previous studies have supported the hypothesis that meditation training improves practitioners emotional regulation. Meditation training programs can have measurable effects on how the brain functions even when someone is not actively meditating, especially in areas related to pain.

In building upon this strong body of evidence, researchers are continuing to deepen our understanding of the profound and inspirational benefits of regular meditation practice in everyday life

The study based on the Shamatha Project, is a major investigation of the cognitive, psychological and biological effects of meditation led by researchers at the University of California, Davis, Center for Mind and Brain.

This study is the first to offer evidence that intensive and continued meditation practice is associated with enduring improvements in sustained attention and response inhibition, with the potential to alter longitudinal trajectories of cognitive change across a persons life, said first author Anthony Zanesco, postdoctoral researcher at the University of Miami, who began work on the project before starting his Ph.D. program in psychology at UC Davis. The project is led by Clifford Saron, research scientist at the UC Davis Center for Mind and Brain, in collaboration with a large group of researchers.

How to get family incomes growing again Resolution Foundation

 

Lots of things matter for family incomes but for British households as a whole nothing matters as much as the labour market. Questions of who has a job and what they get paid for doing it might not be the only determinant of our living standards but they are certainly the first. So what would it take for Britains labour market to do a better job of driving up our living standards?

Lets start with the lessons of recent years of what has worked and what has been a disaster. On the positive side, over the last two decades Britain has been following a labour market policy with twin objectives: higher employment levels and higher pay for the lowest earners. On both counts, with ups and down, it has seen big successes. Employment levels and our minimum wage now stand at record highs 75.2% of adults aged 16 to 64 are working (Q4 2017) and the wage floor is 7.83 per hour (from 1st April 2018 for those 25 years or over).

In the second half of the 1990s, following the disaster of 3 million unemployed after the recessions of the 1980s and 1990s, there came a renewed focus on employment levels as a key objective of public policy. And a new policy approach was shaped to achieve it. This combined increased incentives to work (via tax credits) and expectations of work, alongside greater support to help make it happen (with childcare for example). In big picture terms this combination worked, in some cases dramatically so. Worklessness, which was a national disaster in the 1990s, has shrunk throughout the last two decades from being the experience of over 1 in 5 working-age households to just 1 in 7 in Q4 2017.

Employment rates matter so much for living standards not just because they drive how many people get paid but also who those people are. What matters is not just the overall level of employment income but the distribution of it. Degree educated, white, prime age (30-49) men are almost always in work wherever they live in the country and however good or badly the economy is doing. It is not these groups that benefit most from the tighter labour market that higher employment brings, but those nearer to the edge of the labour market the employment rates of older workers, mothers, ethnic minorities and people with disabilities vary hugely across time and place. For instance the employment rate for people with disabilities is 49 per cent in the South East compared to 36 per cent on Tyneside, and while single parents in South Yorkshire and inner London now have similar rates of employment the pace of improvement has been very different. Lone parent employment increased by 20 percentage points in inner London over the past seven years compared to half that in South Yorkshire where the labour market has been weaker.

In general the rise in employment among single parents was an under-celebrated triumph of the pre-2010 Labour government. There was a transformational increases in employ...

Might he have been a decent teacher? Marginal REVOLUTION

Why did I go into teaching? Looking back it was crazy that I would do that. But Id been through high school and college without getting caught so being a teacher seemed a good place to hide. Nobody suspects a teacher of not knowing how to read.

I taught a lot of different things. I was an athletics coach. I taught social studies. I taught typing I could copy-type at 65 words a minute but I didnt know what I was typing. I never wrote on a blackboard and there was no printed word in my classroom. We watched a lot of films and had a lot of discussions.

I remember how fearful I was. I couldnt even take the roll I had to ask the students to pronounce their names so I could hear their names. And I always had two or three students who I identified early the ones who could read and write best in the classroom to help me. They were my teaching aids. They didnt suspect at all you dont suspect the teacher.

URGENT UPDATE: 30 Days To Go! We Have Nearly 50,000 Mailers To Send Out, But Not Enough Money To Do It The Economic Collapse

As I write this, there are just 30 days to go until May 15th, and it is becoming exceedingly clear that every single vote is going to count in this very tight race.  If you would like to help us turn Congress completely upside down and fight to restore our constitutional republic, we would greatly, greatly appreciate it.  We printed up 50,000 mailers to send out to key voters, but so far we have only sent out a very small percentage of those mailers.  At this moment we dont have the resources to send out the rest, and I am asking for your help.  These mailers are extremely persuasive, and if we can get them into the hands of key primary voters it will win us thousands more votes.  And it may only take 30,000 votes to win this thing.  This is the biggest financial crunch that we have faced during the campaign so far, and it is frustrating because we are so close to crossing the finish line with a victory.  Please help us.  If you feel led to help, here are three ways that you can do so

Indian population bottlenecks Marginal REVOLUTION

we found that West Eurasian-related mixture in India ranges from as low as 20 percent to as high as 80 percent

Groups of traditionally higher social status in the Indian caste system typically have a higher proportion of ANI [Ancestral North Indians] ancestry than those of traditionally lower social status, even within the same state of India where everyone speaks the same language.  For example, Brahmins, the priestly caste, tend to have more ANI ancestry than the groups they live among, even those speaking the same language.

It also seems that a disproportionate share of the ANI genetic input came from males.  Furthermore:

Around a third of Indian groups experienced population bottlenecks as strong or stronger than the ones that occurred among Finns or Ashkenazi Jews.

Many of the population bottlenecks in India were also exceedingly old.  One of the most striking we discovered was in the Vysya of the souther Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, a middle caste group of approximately five million people whose population bottleneck we could dateto betweenthree thousand and two thousand years ago.

The observation of such a strong population bottleneck among the ancestors of the Vysya was shocking.  It meant after the population bottleneck, the ancestors of the Vysya had maintained strict endogamy, allowing essentially no genetic mixing into their group for thousands of years.

And the Vysya were not unique.  A third of the groups we analyzed gave similar signals, implying thousands of groups in India like thislong-term endogamy as embodied in India today in the institution of caste has been overwhelming important for millennia.

The truth is that India is composed of a large number of small populations.

That is all from David Reichs superb Who We Are and How We Got Here: Ancient DNA and the New Science of the Human Past.  Here is my earlier post on the book.

What were the first monasteries and how the monastic life impacted statehood in Russia? How Christian church was able to survive the Tatar-Mongol invasion?

https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2017/10/sultan_erdogan_and_the_new_janissaries.html

Though Western Europe and Washington are reluctant to fess up to this unfortunate fact, Turkey under Recep Tayyip Erdogan has long ago given up even the pretence of being a democratic polity and is openly pursuing policies detrimental to democracy, the rule of law and Western security considerations. In short, Turkey has become an Islamist dictatorship every bit as inimical to Western interests as Iran, except for being allowed by the West to maintain the charade that it is still a member of NATO and the Western community of nations. This is a dangerous charade that will inevitably come back to haunt us. For the reality is that Erdogan the Islamist has ambitions that go beyond Turkey and even the Middle East.  Well known for his admiration for the Ottomans, Erdogan imagines himself as the leader of a new Ottoman Empire based on an Islamized Turkey, but exerting its influence far beyond. Many would dismiss this as an unrealistic pipe dream, and it probably is just that ultimately. But in pursuing it vigorously, Erdogan has already done much damage both in Turkey and abroad. Suffice it to say that Turks who had lived in Germany and the Netherlands for decades, voted for Erdogan in...

How America Made Itself Vulnerable to Collapse Stories by umair haque on Medium

How to Topple the House of Prosperity

Theres a question thats been on my mindand maybe on yours. Why did America make it so easy for itself to collapse? Let me explain what I mean.

American collapse has many causes. One cause is that it America grew socially destabilized, ruptured, fractured. It was undone. Through, most recently, social-scale propaganda, disinformation, organized campaigns to brainwash the average person into believing up is down. Thats just one cause, though. Somehow, America made it easy for itself to topple into authoritarian implosion, economic ruin, and social upheaval.

Why? Why was America so vulnerable to destabilization and collapse in the first place? So much so that within a decade, it went from a reasonable place, to what seems to have become a society stunningly dysfunctional at the most basic levels of self-governance, self-direction, norms, values, goals, aspirations, rules. Other societies havent collapsed so badly, after alland perhaps they can learn from Americas mistakes.

There are three interrelated factors, to my mind.

The first is what you might call a deep-seated atmosphere of hostilitynegative-sum thinking. Decades of extreme capitalism have left people with only one way to see others: as opponents, adversaries, enemies. Not as peers, colleagues, fellow citizens. You probably think Im overstating it. How else do we explain American cruelty, in all its strange and gruesome guiseswhether regular school shootings, crushing overwork for little pay, the young and old never retiring, no margin of error, sanity, or safety, lives lived at the razors edge of survival? The average person has just a thousand dollars in savings, falling life expectancy, and no faith in the future. How did he get there?

Predatory capitalism, the variant that evolved in America, and is being exported globally, is premised on ruthless negative-sum competition for the average person: the rich get ultra richer, but the middle class person forever lives at the edge of a life imploding into poverty. He is pitted against his neighbour in a desperate struggle for the basics of existencehealthcare, education, finance, housing. If he wishes to have these things, extreme capitalism tells him, he can only gain them by taking them away from someone else. Hence, norms and economics are linkedpeople hate one another because they are constantly competing with everyone else for a slightly less bad, but always declining, life. It would drive anyone mad.

Think of it as a massive, social-scale Prisoners Dilemma: the costs of cooperation (towards say building a functioning healthcare system) have been raised so high (by lobbying, gerrymandering, disinformation, and so on) that the least costly option is to renege on the social contract itself. All that a person whos life is col...

Why is eurozone growth slowing down? Marginal REVOLUTION

According to the Fulcrum activity nowcasts, which identified the surge in growth very early last year, the eurozone was still growing at a rate of 3.5 per cent late in 2017. Each of the largest economies in the bloc was doing well: Germany 4 per cent, France 3 per cent, Italy 2 per cent and Spain 3.5 per cent. Economic forecasters and the central bank had become confident that this strong recovery phase would persist throughout 2018. But that has not happened so far.

The latest nowcast results for the eurozone suggest that activity growth has dropped to only 1.2 per cent in early April, with each of the major economies experiencing a sharp decline in growth. Even Germany, which was relatively immune from previous European downturns has recorded a very sharp dip, with growth now down to only around 1 per cent.

That is from Gavyn Davies at the FT.

***Immediate Buy Recommendation*** Future Money Trends

The Greatest Fire Sale in History: 
There is a Ton of Money to be Made in This Hated Sector!

A Rare Chance to Partner With an Investment Legend Who Has Built Two Billion-Dollar Companies.

A sector that has been overlooked by Wall Street and ignored by brokers is about to violently turn higher

Dear Reader,

The writing is on the wall.

Im going to bet that you can already feel what Im about to tell you in your stomach.

Your intuition and senses know its inevitable, but the day of what will potentially be the biggest score of profits seems to always find a way to be delayed

Youve heard about the exploding government deficits, artificially low interest rates, a ballooning national debt, a Federal Reserve with no exit strategy, and a coming crisis that could be much bigger than 2008.

In fact, youve probably taken some steps to prepare, but all this waiting and all the pain from holding things like gold, Bitcoin, mining shares, and even cash while the general markets have continued to melt-up and set record highs have left many investors frustrated, to say the least.

Rarely do any of us get an opportunity like this. Ive honestly never seen a set-up this good.

What youre about to witness in the most hated sector on Earth is a rip-roaring recovery, perhaps one of the most violent rises higher weve ever seen.

They are long overdue, and they have now signaled the most bullish indicator in the last 47 years!

Why Do They Tell US Transparent Lies?

Paul Craig Roberts

US officials and the presstitutes tell us that the illegal US missile attack on Syria destroyed chemical weapons sites where chlorine and sarin are stored/manufactured. If this were true, would not a lethal cloud have been released that would have taken the lives of far more people than claimed in the alleged Syrian chemical attack on Douma? Would not the US missile attack be identical to a chemical weapons attack and thus place the US and its vassals in the same category as Washington is attempting to place Assad and Putin?

What about it, you chemical weapons experts? Do chemical weapons only release their elements when they explode from intended use but not when they explode from being militarily attacked?

There is no evidence in Syria of chemical residue from the chemical weapons facilities allegedly destroyed by US missiles. No dead victims. No reports of hospitals treating Syrian casualties of the American chemical attack. How can this be if such sites were actually hit?

When I was a Wall Street Journal editor newspapers had competent journalists to whom such a question would occur. But no more.
