Go to: https://www.virtualshield.com/billstill Good evening, Im still reporting on: Hillary Was NEVER Under FBI Investigation?!!, 2289 Synopsis: According to ace investigator, Paul Sperry, the entire Horowitz Report, which appears to be a rather desperate cover-up for the worst of the seditious activity right at the top of the FBI that report is coming apart at the seams. First, here is a selection of Sperrys tweets on Friday: Sperry 1 IG Horowitz testifies material implicating Lynch in possible obstruction of Hillary email case is contained in classified section of his report and that he will work with Congress to declassify it. Here is the possible smoking gun: Sp 2 IG Horowitz confirms his staff did not recover all of Strzok's or Page's text messages from the December 15, 2016 - May 17, 2017 "gap" period when FBI suffered mysterious archiving "glitch" ... As Ive proven in these reports time after time, large organizations, and all agencies of the government, can never lose emails or text messages. They are required by law to preserve them and as a result, there are backups of backups on servers, then there are old-fashioned tape backups that are picked up weekly by the armored vehicles of big preserving firms such as Iron Mountain. Therefore, there was no mysterious glitch. This is an outright lie. Now turning to the last 24 hours: Sperry 3 IG Horowitz revealed in Senate testimony FBI never named a target or even subject in Clinton probe. Not Mills, Abedin, Combetta or Clinton herself. "Nobody was listed as a subject of this investigation at any point in time," adding this was "surprising" for a crim probe Thats correct, there was never an actual investigation of Clintons mishandling of thousands of highly classified emails. Let me say this again; THERE WAS NO INVESTIGATION only a fake announcement or exoneration trying to justify why she got away Scot free.

However, this was not a spy. Stunningly, this was an attempted entrapment sprung by a man who it turns out, was an FBI informant. The FBI entrapper was a man by the name of Henry Greenberg who had worked for the FBI for 17 years. In May of 2016, he contacted Trump friend, Roger Stone, and offered to sell him dirt on Hillary Clinton that he claimed was being offered from the Russian government for $5 million. Stone, in a text, quickly dismissed the attempted entrapment by texting Greenberg that Trump never pays for political dirt. Tucker picks up the story from last night interviewing former Asst. U.S. Attorney, Andrew McCarthy. Support Our Sponsors: - Virtual Shield VPN - the easiest way to create a home VPN.

@TBPInvictus here: What inning are we in in this economic cycle? Sixth? Eighth? Are we going to go into extra innings?

Markets reopened today in China spreading something else entirely. Chinese stocks, at least those represented by the Shanghai SSE, were down sharply. The index broke below 3,000 for the first time since September 2016. More importantly, the steady upward trend increasingly appears to have been broken in January. Those spreading global liquidations disturbed what had been consistent advance going all the way back to February 2016
How To Support Our Troops
If we truly want to support our troops and honor our men and women in uniform, we would stop requiring them to have their limbs blown off, their bodies paralyzed, their eyes blinded, their minds destroyed and their lives lost for wars that have NOTHING to do with protecting America and EVERYTHING to do with enriching globalists, bankers, politicians, and war profiteers.
We would stop using them for political nation-building, regime change and drug dealing. We would stop using them as global cops. And we would especially stop using them to fight perpetual wars of aggression for Zionist Israel.
Short of the above, all of the hype about supporting our troops is just so much hot air. No! Its even worse than that: Its pure propaganda for the sake of benefiting the merciless, murderous war merchants and heads of state who profit off of the sacrifices of their countrys sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters and husbands and wives.
The best way to support our troops is to BRING THEM HOME.

CLICK HERE: BillStill.StemCellintern.com Good evening, Im still reporting on: Lindsey Graham Proves There Was Pro Clinton Bias, 2287 Synopsis: Senator Lindsey Graham is NOT my favorite politician. Last April, following the FBI raid on attorney Michael Cohen, Graham joined two Democrats in introducing legislation to limit Trumps ability to fire Robert Mueller. In 2009, Graham joined John Kerry and Joe Lieberman in a letter to President Obama to support climate change legislation. In 2006, he and John McCain were the poster boys for the Never-Trump movement in the Senate. But, my, oh my how things do change. Graham will face re-election in 2020. In other words, like it or not, he will be running with President Trump. So, in the past few weeks, seeing Trumps rising popularity, Graham has decided to join him instead fight him. Well, today DOJ Michael Horowitz faced a Senate committee for questioning over his recently released report on the Clinton email investigation a report that outlandishly claims that the obvious extreme hatred of candidate Donald Trump did not change any decisions made by the FBI and DOJ. Graham, one of the last Senators to question Horowitz and FBI Director Christopher Wray, took to live television and used his time in the spotlight to deliver THE most brilliant attack on the conclusions of the IGs report.

We all know that parts of the tax system are very progressive and this should be very apparent in the Autumn Statement when the Chancellor unveils perhaps 10 billion of tax rises that will target the wealthy. But wait, some say, when you factor in taxes such as VAT its actually poorer households that pay more tax.
That claim is usually based on the annual Effects of taxes and benefits on UK household income release, which was updated today with results for 2016-17. This looks at different sources of household incomes, including employment income and benefits, as well as the amounts paid in direct taxes like income tax and indirect taxes like VAT or tobacco duty. The data also allocates the benefits associated with the consumption of some public services, such as subsidised rail travel or the NHS, across different households. As such, its a fairly unique and invaluable resource.
Taken at face value, todays 2016-17 data seems to confirm that the poorest tenth of households do pay more of their income (49 per cent) in tax than the richest tenth do (34 per cent). But the bottom line is that this data for the poorest is incorrect.

1. The word cheerio does not precede 1910, and furthermore it has been obsolete for some time now, and not because it was pushed out by an Americanism.
2. The Brits are correct to insist on I couldnt care less, rather than the American I could care less.
3. Americans used to call an umbrella a bumbershoot, yet nowadays if they hear the word they often think it is a Britishism. The British slang term is in fact brolly.
4. When Americans speak, they prefer repetitious over repetitive, even though the latter is nine times more common in American text. Perhaps repetitious is morerepetitious.
5. One-off is a Britishism that largely has caught on in America.
6. How can they call it rumpy-pumpy?
7. The British use sorry at the rate four times the Americans do.
All that and more is from the new and fun book The Prodigal Tongue: The Love-Hate Relationship Between American and British English, by Lynne Murphy.
With two and a half years to meet a deadline set in 2010, sustainability experts say consumer goods companies are working on the wrong model to cut deforestation out of their supply chains.
there are incredibly powerful non-state actors who are also competing furiously to develop this technology. All of the 7 most important technology companies in the worldGoogle, Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Alibaba, Tencent, Baiduare making huge investments in AI, from low level frameworks and silicon to consumer products. It goes without saying that their expertise in machine learning leads any state actor at the moment.
As the applications of machine learning grow, the interactions between these companies and different nation states will grow in complexity. Consider for example road transportation, where we are gradually moving towards on demand, autonomous cars. This will increasingly blur the line between publicly funded mass transportation (e.g. a bus) and private transport (a shared Uber). If this leads to a new natural monopoly in road transportation should it be managed by the state (e.g. the call in London for Khans Cars) or by a British company, or by a multinational company like Uber?
As Mariana Mazzucato outlined in her fantastic book The Entrepreneurial State, states have historically played a crucial role in underwriting long term, high risk research in science and technology by funding either academic research or the military. These technologies are often then commercialised by private companies. With the rise of visionary and wealthy technology companies like Google we are seeing more high risk long term research being funded by the private sector. DeepMind is a prime example of this. This creates tension when the interests of a private company like Google and a state are not aligned. An example of this is the recent interactions between Google and the Pentagon where over 4000 Google employees protested against Googles participation in warfare technologies and as a result Google decided to not renew its contract with the Pentagon. This is a rapidly evolving topic. Only a week earlier Sergey Brin had said that he understood the controversy and had discussed the matter extensively with Mr. Page and Mr. Pichai. However, he said he thought that it was better for peace if the worlds militaries were intertwined with international organizations like Google rather than working solely with nationalistic defense contractors.

Course Summary Commercially competitive prices for solar Photovoltaic (PV) projects have sparked a jump in the share of this renewable energy source in power sectors worldwide. Asian countries, especially China, India, Thailand and Japan have made considerable progress in expanding the role of renewables in their energy supply systems with solar PV projects accounting for a significant percentage of the growth in non-hydro renewable projects.
21 SCEM PDUs points awarded COURSE OVERVIEW Compressed air systems hold the key to greater productivity, efficiency and profitability in your facility. You just have to understand where to look and what to do. There is an increasing awareness that the systems approach to design and operation of industrial compressed air systems improves performance and productivity. A properly designed and functioning compressed air system reduces energy consumption cost.
Course Summary Pumps take up 20 - 30% in a typical split of energy usage of motor driven equipment for an industrial plant. Commercial buildings, with lower demand for processes, it is between 15 to 20%. The large amounts of energy used for pumping makes pump systems a major candidate for energy savings.Pumping systems is usually less complicated when compared to process or chiller side optimisation.
Course Summary Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is one of the many factors that determine building functionality and economics. Good IAQ plays a vital role in creating a healthy and productive workplace. During this one-day course, the trainer will discuss the issues and problems of poor IAQ and how the problems can be mitigated through effective HVAC system design and practices and deployment of advanced air cleaning technologies.

I Remember When America Was A Free Country
Paul Craig Roberts
Dear Readers, In the Western World truth, justice, and liberty are in total collapse. They cannot be resurrected and restored without information. Few people have that information. The young are born into what exists, and as the tyranny increases year by year, tyranny becomes the natural order to them. Indeed, they do not recognize tyranny. Their cell phones, social media, and the Internet give them the illusion of freedom. The old are lost in the controversies of their time: The Russians are communists, only hippies, left-wingers, and communists distrust the great and good US government. In short, the vast bulk of the American people havent a clue. When readers ask me to tell them the solution, what to do, my answer is that nothing can be done until enough people are informed. Informing is my job. Support my efforts and those of a few others whose only agenda is to inform.
In America, and throughout the Western world, it is harder and harder to speak the truth. Indeed, truth is such a devalued virtue that to speak it almost qualifies one as a criminal. If you want truth spoken, you must support it.
Now for the column:
I remember when America was a free country. You could get on an airliner without an ID. Driving licenses didnt even have photos. If a friend was coming through your city on a flight and had a few hours layover, you could meet them inside the airport for lunch or dinner. You could meet friends, children, and relatives at the gate or see them off at the gate. Parents could actually put children on the plane and grandparents could take them off.
Your flight ticket was good at any airline. If something happened to your flight or you missed it, you could use the ticket on another airline going to the same place. On international flights you were permitted two free stopovers prior to your destination. If you were going to Athens, Greece, for example, you could first visit Paris and then Rome. It worked both ways, over and back. So one air ticket, six cities.
I can remember when you could enter a Manhatten office building without having to show an ID, be looked up on a list, and cleared in, and when you could check in a hotel without an ID and paid your bill when you checked out, with cash if you preferred. The only evidence of your name was the one you gave when you checked in.
Cars didnt beep at you and neither did appliances nor construction machinery. The world was a quieter, less noise-disturbed place.
Common sense was more prevalent. Today it is hard to find any common sense. The British parliament is debating a law that would criminalize upskirt photographs. The invasion of privacy would have a price tag of two years imprisonment. Yet government can invade our privacy at will with street cameras, traffic cameras, read our emails, listen to our telephone call...

Over the last several days, youve probably watched in numb, icy horror as kids are put in cages in camps where theyre not allowed to hug each other.
Its funny. Over the last few years, Ive written about American collapseand many of you yourselves have said: Dont be so hyperbolic, man! Everything will be OK! and yet, suddenly, it seems like an understatement to call whats happening collapse now, doesnt it?
Collapse is what we know. The grim facts of American life over the last decade or so. Americans with less then $500 in savings, wholl never retire, with falling life expectancies, crippled by debt, working to prop the very inequality that is sapping their lives away. Collapse is an economy turning predatory, a polity that is paralyzed, and society whose bonds have imploded. Collapse is an opioid epidemic, shool shootings, and Fox News.
But this? This is very, very different. Camps. Kids. Hitler-esque communiqu. The wise men of the land suddenly heatedly arguing if Americans are really Nazis, in thought and habit now, or just Nazis in an action here and there. Mass protests being planned. A rising sense that this is not normal, not who we are, a sense of shock that it is happening here. And its all happening so fast, so quickly, one unbelievable event after the other, that theres no time to think about it, process it, reflect on it.
And so there is an atmosphere of panic and despair, of confusion and bewilderment suddenly, isnt there? Its as if an invisible thread snapped, that was holding the country together, suddenly. And now nobody understand how we got here, what it means, or where we are going.
My friends, America is in a very different phase of decline, now. Implosion. American collapse has become American implosion. And like the word implies, implosion is a very different stage of decline than collapse.
That is why everything feels different now. Collapse is a house of cards falling in slow motion, jacks and spades on the wind. It is almost luxurious. There is time to think, to ponder, to consider. But implosion is volcanic, eruptive, violent, sudden. It is like a heart attack. All that you want to do is runbefore the lava reaches you. Where does it lead? What does it mean?
First, implosion means, as the word suggests, an explosive acceleration. Think of the last two weeks. Did you think that real and horrific atrocity could erupt this fast? That wed be at this pointconcentration camps, kids, cages, guardsso quickly? Its been explosive, hasnt it? But it is hardly likely to stop here. In fact, what America is going through is likely to accelerate. The government already has plans to ramp up putti...

Putting little kids in camps. Kids of a certain kind, in camps of a certain kind. Where they are not allowed to hug or be hugged. Where the lights stay on 24 hours a day. Where their diapers arent changed. Where they are separated from their siblings and parents. Where soothing these damaged kids has itself become a crime.
Hold on , lets start over.
Putting little kids in camps where they are, for all intents and purposes, by any reasonable definition of the word, being tortured. If to be tortured is to be left severely traumatized by abuse, then the bar has been met.
Now I am going to make your blood run cold, and your eyes weep. I dont say that to boast. I say it because at times like these, anything less is indecent, inhuman, and empty. These are self-evidently among the lowest and most debased things that a people can do. But what do the acts above meanto history, to the world, to the future, and to our better selves? What is the exact word we would use to describe them? What word contains them?
In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
a Killing members of the group;
b Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
c Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
d Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
Hold onisnt that exactly what were doing?
I told you Id make your blood run cold, didnt I? Now I am going to make you weep. Let me ask you four questions.
Id bet that at this precise instant, your mind is going into a panic, trying to pick holes in all this. Something in you is shouting: No! We cant be! Genocide? Are you crazy? Youre wrong! In other words, you are trying to deny it. Why?
Lets take your first objection. But were not putting all the kids of that group in campsjust some! Thats not enough for genocide!! Is it? Lets go back to the definition. It reads: in whole or in part. We arent putting every Latino or Hispanic kid in the world in a campbut genocide only means at its outermost extreme exterminating every single member of a group. Its enough to say that a society is trying to rid itself of a group, forcibly, to mee...

Should there be more publicly funded space exploration? Noa Ovadia recently argued that money should be spent on more pressing needs than space travel. An expert from IBM smacked that argument down pretty convincingly:
It is very easy to say that there are more important things to spend money on, and I do not dispute this. No one is claiming that this is the only item on our expense list. But that is beside the point. As subsidizing space exploration would clearly benefit society, I maintain that this is something the government should pursue.
Oh, did I mention the expert was Dr. Watson?

The Canadian Co-operative Investment Fund (CCIF) has approved the first investments from its $25 million fund. CCIF is currently closing nearly $1 million in four loans to co-operatives. In Nelson, BC, the capital will be used to support a business expansion. In Edmonton, AB, and in London, ON, the loans will provide mortgage financing for housing co-operatives. Finally, a loan to the Conseil de la coopration de l'Ontario (CCO) will add support to a micro-lending program for co-operative enterprises.
The four investments represent the diversity of the co-operative sector and are clear examples of how CCIF can assist co-operatives in serving their communities alongside co-operative financial institutions.

In 2012, Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) launched the Sharing City Seoul program and enacted the Seoul Metropolitan Government Ordinance on the Promotion of Sharing as the legal foundation for this world-leading initiative. The purpose of the ordinance is to "maximize utilization of resources, recover communities and revitalize the regional economy" by promoting sharing. The ordinance defines sharing as "activities that create social, economic and environmental values by jointly using resources, such as space, goods, information, talent and experience."
After more than two years of planning, fundraising, and construction, the citys first worker-owned and democratically run brewery is nearing a debut, and just in time for Independence Day. If all goes according to plan, the micro brewery, kitchen, and German style beer hall located at 35 Temple Place in Downtown Crossing will hold a series of soft openings in the coming weeks before welcoming the general public on that most patriotic of holidays, the 4th of July.
The brainchild of James Razsa, formerly a community organizer with a passion for economic justice, he concocted the idea while working at a fair-trade coffee co-op five years ago. A short time later he started learning the craft brewery ropes as a beer slinger for community focused Aeronaut Brewing in their Somerville taproom. He followed that up with an internship at John Harvards in Cambridge where he met Jason Taggart, the pubs head brewer. The two hit it off, and when Razsa shared his idea of opening the areas first cooperative brewery, a partnership was born.

Our newest stock suggestion, Globalive Technology, just announced a major joint venture with Flexiti Financial to create an AI-blockchain software for the consumer loan market.
Flexiti is a leading private label credit card issuer in Canada who recently acquired TD Financing Services Canadian private label credit card portfolio, which has helped facilitate more than $3 billion in transactions.
Globalive Technology (TSXV: LIVE & US: LVVEF) plans to leverage Flexitis $300 million loan portfolio, with 1.1 million customers, to build an AI platform that anonymously analyzes merchant transaction data.
This allows merchants to create value-added transactions at the point of sale and reduce bad debt by predicting loan outcomes using machine learning. In addition to this, the blockchain software will be built to help the loan funding infrastructure.

Paul Krugman has an excellent piece on the potential effects of an all out trade war. Likely Krugman, I think it unlikely that we actually go that far. My view is that before that happened, Trump would become frightened by a sharp fall in stocks and negotiate some sort of face saving deal where he could claim victory. (But when thinking about the stock market as a warning device, beware of the circularity problem. The stock market wont warn Trump if it thinks he would heed their warning.)
Here Id like to add one additional downside to a trade war, the way trade policy can (and has) interacted with monetary policy. A trade war might be even worse than Krugman estimates, if it leads to tighter monetary policy and falling NGDP.
You might think that Krugman has already factored falling NGDP into his estimate that a trade war could reduce RGDP by 2 to 3 percent. But unless Im mistaken, hes using a general equilibrium approach that abstracts from demand shocks. In other words, Krugman is showing that even in a world where the central bank stabilizes AD, a trade war could reduce RGDP by 2 to 3 percent by making the economy less efficient. But what if the central bank does not stabilize AD? In that case you might get an ordinary recession, piled on top of the adverse supply shock produced by a trade war. A recession slows the process of worker re-allocation into non-tradable sectors.
I can see two possible channels by which a trade war could reduce aggregate demand:
1. Imagine the central bank is targeting interest rates. If a trade war occurs, its likely that investment demand would fall, reducing the global equilibrium (i.e. natural) rate of interest. If the central bank does not reduce the policy rate as quickly as the natural rate is falling, that would lead to (effectively) tighter money and falling NGDP. (Think of this as a channel that operates if Im wrong about monetary offset, and the Keynesians are right.)
2. Imagine the central bank is targeting inflation. If inflation is kept at 2% while RGDP growth is falling, then NGDP growth will also slow. (Here the problem can occur even if monetary offset is operative, as long as they target inflation, not NGDP.)
Keep in mind that slower NGDP growth is always a problem, even if there are other problems at the same time. Careful readers might recall that this is exactly what went wrong in 2008. The Fed adopted IOR to prevent its liquidity injections aimed at rescuing banking from spilling out into more aggregate demand, out of fear of inflation. They thought the banking crisis was the real problem when in fact there were two real problems, banking distress and falling NGDP. The falling NGDP led directly to highe...

Roman politicians picked winners and losers, generally favoring the politically well connected a practice thats central to the welfare state of modern times, too. As numerous writers have noted, these expensive rob-Peter-to-pay-Paul efforts were major factors in bankrupting Roman society. They inevitably led to even more destructive interventions. Rome wasnt built in a day, as the old saying goes and it took a while to tear it down as well. Eventually, when the republic faded into an imperial autocracy, the emperors attempted to control the entire economy.

The author is Priya Satia, and the subtitle is The Violent Making of the Industrial Revolution. Here is one good bit:
In fact, there were so many transitions between peace and war that it is difficult to establish what normal economic conditions were. Eighteenth-century Europeans accepted war as inevitable, an ordinary fact of human existence. It was an utterly unexceptional state of affairs. For Britons in particular, war was something that happened abroad and that kept truly damaging disruption invasion or rebellion at bay. Wars that were disruptive elsewhere were understood as preservationist in BritainAdam Smiths complaints about the costs of war, about the ruinous expedient of perpetual funding and high public debt in peacetime, staked out a contrarian position; The Wealth of Nations (1776) was a work of persuasion. His and other voices in favor of pacific development grew louder from the margins. By denormalizing war, liberal political economy raised the stakes of the centurys long final wars from 1793 to 1815, which could be stomached only as an exceptional, apocalyptic stage on the way to permanent peace.
In their wake, nineteenth-century Britain packaged their empire as a primarily civilian enterprise focused on liberty, forgetting the earlier collective investment in and profit from the wars that had produced it..

As China has emerged as a global power playing an active role in international affairs, its filmmakers have found willing audiences for films heavy on action-packed shootouts, kung-fu heroes, and the defeat of foreign enemies.The plots of Operation Mekong, Operation Red Sea and Wolf Warrior are some of the best examples. The tropes are much the same: a poor, backwards and dangerous country with rebel armies, failing Western-style aid, and outnumbered Chinese heroes saving the day.The nationalism underpinning these films has garnered box office success, even though the overblown plots are at odds with China's real-world "wait and see" approach to most international and regional issues.It is a pity, then, that filmmakers are ignoring a subject where China is emerging as a leader on the global stage, that is, on climate change.China in Hollywood cli-fiIt's hard to know if there are many Chinese fans of "cli-fi" movies-those rare films that take climate change as their subject matter. If there are, they may have noticed the growing reference to China in Hollywood films with climate themes.Take for example, the 2017 blockbuster Geostorm, which did well at the Chinese box office but had poor reviews. In it, a satellite system designed to avert natural disasters and fix global warming by modifying the weather is weaponised, threatening disaster.As the film starts, we are told that China and the United States are leading the planet's best scientists in their (misguided) attempt to deliver fantastical climate engineering solutions that can save humanity from heatwaves and cold snaps.China soon disappears from the story though after Chinese-American actor Daniel Wu is killed off, leaving the film to get back to its conventional plot in which a white male hero saves the day.One of the best known cli-fi movies so far, 2012, has plot elements that involve China more prominently. As huge floods threaten humanity's future, China's factories come to the rescue, working day and night to produce high-tech floating arks before the waters rise.But as David S Roh and others have pointed out, myths of Asia's technology and manufacturing prowess are just another method of objectification and mystification-a type of techno-orientalism.Chinese-American actor Daniel Wu had a small role in Geostorm but was killed off before the halfway point (Image: Geostorm)An awkward absenceHistorically, climate change has not lent itself easily to films outside of documentaries, or effects-driven disaster movies like The Day After Tomorrow, meaning there are few cli-fi examples. And it isn't hard to understand why China's climate leadership fails to make it into the scripts of US films. If Chinese filmmakers are failing to acknowledge China's role, can Hollywood be expected to?Look to China and we find, to our surprise, that Chinese cinema has done even less than Hollywood to reflect the country's important international role in tackling climate change. In fact, 18 years into this centu...

That is the topic of my latest Bloomberg column, here is one excerpt:
What have been the really major advances of the past 20 years? is one of the most common debated questions in my circles. The smartphone is probably nominated most often, while Google, Facebook and fracking have their advocates too. Yet we hardly ever talk about one of the most important developments, perhaps because it raises uncomfortable political issues: the governance technologies and strategies of authoritarian regimes have become much more efficient
The big innovation in authoritarian governance has been this: subsequent autocratic leaders, most of all in China, have found ways of both liberalizing and staying in power. The good news is that people living under authoritarian governments have much, much better lives than before. The corresponding bad news is that autocracy works better than it used to and thus it is more popular and probably also more enduring. The notion that autocratic government would fade away, either in practice or as an ideological competitor to Western liberalism, simply isnt tenable any more
A second development was when authoritarian leaders realized that absolute prohibitions on free speech were counterproductive, and they learned how to manage an intermediate solution. Allowing partial speech rights is useful as a safety valve, it allows major dissidents to be identified and monitored, and absolute speech prohibitions tended to wreck the economy and discourage foreign investment, leading to unpopularity of the government. At the same time, an autocratic government could come down hard on the truly threatening ideas when needed.
Scientific public opinion polling has been another advance in authoritarian states. In 1987, the Economic System Reform Institute of China conducted the first Chinese public opinion survey, a breakthrough event. Under Chairman Mao in contrast, the incentive was to report only the good news. In the 1990s, however, Chinese public opinion surveys boomed and also became much more scientific.

That is the title of my Bloomberg column, here is my basic proposal:
Lets take one-tenth of those women and move them from prison to house arrest, combined with electronic monitoring. That would allow for proximity to their children. If the U.S. isnt plagued by a subsequent wave of violent crime and I dont think it will be let us try the same for yet another tenth. Lets keep on doing this until its obviously not working.
According to one 2010 study, more than 1.1 million men and 120,000 women in U.S. jails and prisons have children under the age of 17.
From 1991 to 2007, the number of children with a mother in prison more than doubled, rising 131 percent. About two-thirds of the women in state prisons are there for nonviolent offenses. Sixty percent of those women have children under the age of 18, and in one survey one-quarter of the prisoners children were under the age of 4. Forty-one percent of the women in state prison had more than one childOne estimate suggests that 11 percent of the children of imprisoned mothers end up in foster care.
We can do this.

The very idea of a labor shortage is supposed to be strictly an economic concept. No longer. It is now wielded almost exclusively in political terms. Anecdotes about how companies are unable to find workers pepper most commentary on the labor market if only because there is no (none) direct statistical evidence that a nationwide labor problem exists.
In the absence of such data, a plethora of reports on how individual businesses are creatively dealing with the presumed problem is constantly offered as a sort of backup. If there was an actual shortage, no creativity would be required. There is nothing particularly clever about offering more money to workers, both to keep those you have on staff already as well as to bring in new ones if you need them so badly.
It actually argues against the idea.
The other angle for the LABOR SHORTAGE!!! is within the immigration debate. I dont particularly wish to get into it at any time, but the inadvertent honesty being offered in this one specific instance is particularly noteworthy; this time in the form of a mainstream story about a California citrus and avocado farmer.
Shade will need 50 harvesters for peak season. Right now, he has 25. Hes tried to hire more, but a skilled crew is becoming harder to find: The workforce hes relied on is aging and hes having a hard time finding people to replace them.
Sounds a lot like a shortage, except:
Even though he pays well above minimum wage, hes also lost workers to farms that can afford to pay more. The experienced harvesters at Shades farm can make up to $400 a day, he says. The rookies start off at minimum wage and then move up to $200 to $300 a day after a few weeks.
The articles author makes a mistake by composing his thesis from the comparison between what Mr. Shade pays versus the minimum wage. He pays a lot more than the bare minimum therefore we arent supposed to imagine why hes having problems other than the image of labor scarcity.
Thats nothing more than a false equivalence, however, and ends up proving the opposite point. The correct economic (small e) notation is between what everyone else pays versus what Mr. Shade is apparently unable to. The question is never does he pay a lot?, rather it is always does he pay enough? If he was to increase wage rates, shortage solved.
Thus, its not a labor shortage...

I want to share with you where I think we stand. Maybe it will scare the living daylights out of you. It should.
We are one step away from the abyss. Just one. A little one, a small nudge. Into acts which are unthinkable, which will disgrace us, shame our children, and quite probably destroy our democracy forevermore. Im sure you think I overstate it. Let me make my case, and you are more than welcome to pick holes in itif you can find any. But I dont think that you will.
In a country I dont need to name, a head of state recently built concentration campsthats according to historians of concentration camps, not me or you. Now, in response to massive public outcry, what happened? Well, the party that controls government did not lift a finger to act. Not a single representative of that side said: we are going to stop this, and then did. Not one. They didnt care. In fact, they licensed it, through their inaction.
What happened next? The person in charge of these camps produced a set of spectacular Orwellian denials. They arent cages. They arent camps. We dont separate families. The nation was incredulousbecause, of course, there are pictures, stories, evidence of all that, not just a few, but many. No matterreality is now what they say it is, what the people think it is.
What happened next? Did the head of state come to his senses? No. He issued communiqus which said: immigrants are the cause of death and destruction! Does this remind you of a particular figure in world history? An infamous one? It should. If it doesnt, my friend, I wonder if you have eyes to see.
So. Let us now think one step ahead. Lets imagine, simply, that the head of state in this country, or its Congress, decides to do something much worse even than put kids in camps. By passing a bill, or an executive order, or both. We dont even need to ask the obvious questionwhy would they stop at camps for kids?
Go ahead, pick something. Pick anything. Let the dark corners of your imagination run wild for a moment. Intern citizens. Strip people en masse of citizenship. Put residents and citizens in camps. Gulags. Enslave the prisoners in them. Put people in ghettoes, based on their ethnic status. Exterminate them.
Does this sound like fabulism to you? Please think again. Who is going to stop it? The Congress will not lift a fingerthat much it has already clearly signaled, hasnt it? The head of state appears to have no moral limits whatsoeverall this is very clearly within not just his legal capabilities, but more importantly, within the bounds of his moral imagination. It is something he is capable of as a human being. The media, at least a solid half of it, would probably cheer such things, and deny they are happeningjust as it does ri...

There is good news for net neutrality coming out of California
today, where two State Senators have combined their bills, SB 822 and SB 460, ahead
of a key hearing this Wednesday before the Communications and
Conveyance Committee. AT&T and other ISPs have been pouring
money into lobbying and spreading misinformation, and were
attempting to kill both bills by playing them against each
The combined bills leave all critical net neutrality protections intact, and if passed would set a gold standard for state-level open Internet legislation across the country. But telecom monopolies are still pushing hard to kill or water down the bills at the hearing this Wednesday, and contacts on the ground in Sacramento indicate that the committee chairman Miguel Santiago is being heavily lobbied by ISPs to do just that.
Its unthinkable that California Democrats would even consider weakening an extremely popular net neutrality bill in the immediate wake of the FCCs attack on our Internet freedom, said Evan Greer, deputy director of Fight for the Future, a digital rights group with more than 350,000 members in California. The free and open Internet is essential for every social movement combating corruption and authoritarianism. California Assembly members need to listen to their constituents, small business owners, and community groups not AT&Ts lobbyists. The whole Internet is watching.
In cities across the world, urban agriculture is increasing access to local healthy food, connecting communities, and creating local jobs. On Aug. 7, 2014, San Francisco was the first city in California to establish an urban agriculture incentive zone (UAIZ), as permitted by state Assembly Bill 551, to address two large obstacles faced by farmers and gardeners access to land and secure land tenure. This act allows owners of vacant property within San Francisco to apply for tax reduction in exchange for putting their land into agricultural use for at least five years.

There is a new NBER working paper on those topics by Klaus Desmet, Avner Greif, and Stephen Parente:
A market-size-only theory of industrialization cannot explain why England developed nearly two centuries before China. One shortcoming of such a theory is its exclusive focus on producers. We show that once we incorporate the incentives of factor suppliers organizations such as craft guilds, industrialization no longer depends on market size, but on spatial competition between the guilds jurisdictions. We substantiate our theory (i) by providing historical and empirical evidence on the relation between spatial competition, craft guilds and innovation, and (ii) by showing the calibrated model correctly predicts the timings of the Industrial Revolution and the Great Divergence.
From the body of the paper, I found these two sentences especially useful:
First, using city size and location data, we quantify how spatial competition increased in England between 1600 and 1800. Using the same metric, we show that China at the end of the nineteenth century was about 200 years behind England.

Trust the Trustees swinn Mon, 06/18/2018 - 13:22
The story we expected and the story we got was that the shortfall was becoming a more urgent situation, said Charles Blahous, a former public trustee of the Social Security and Medicare Trust Funds about the latest reports on the programs finances.
Congress, he added, is running out of good options for dealing with it.
In the latest Facing the Future program, Blahous and Robert Reischauer, also a former public trustee of the programs joined Concord Coalition Executive Director Robert L. Bixby and me to discuss the recently released Social Security and Medicare Trustees reports.
One revelation from this years reports was that both Social Security and Medicare will begin to draw down their trust funds this year. According to last years reports, that was not supposed to occur until 2022 for Social Security and 2023 for Medicare Hospital Insurance.
Blahous said that the biggest reason for this is a change in the trustees assumptions on future payroll tax revenue based on lower-than-expected payroll tax revenue in the last two years.
The projected date for Social Securitys trust funds to be completely depleted remains 2034, at which point severe measures would be needed to sustain the program. The key is to take corrective action sooner rather than later.
Social Security already runs a cash deficit, paying out more benefits than revenue it receives, and Reischauer warned of what the program would look like if changes are not made.
When (the trust fund) becomes exhausted, then all benefits and administrative costs have to be reduced to the amount flowing into the system through payroll taxes and these very modest income tax receipts, said Reischauer. At that point, if we waited until we are reliant only on payroll taxes, we would have to cut across the board all benefits by 23 percent.
Now these are humongous changes. . .that would devastate the lifestyles of a very substantial portion of the retired and disabled population, said Reischauer.
Alternatively, Reischauer said, simply relying on increased payroll taxe...

Last week, I travelled to Portland, Oregon to give a keynote presentation to the Consumer Coop Management AssociationCCMA. My first experience with cooperatives had been in 1983 when I worked as a manager for the Stockton Farmers Market Coop. Long before the rise of the food movement, we used to sell fresh produce to the Berkeley Coops supermarkets. This allowed a small group of struggling farmers to sell a lot of good food to a big group of affluent consumers. But that was long ago. I needed to study up to face 500 experts in coop management.
When I did background research, I was struck by the obvious: Capitalism and food coops emerged together.

4. Applying Moneyball techniques to team chemistry in sports also the next frontier for management?
I awoke this morning, as I often do these days, to a hilariously tragic sight. An historian in my Twitter feed was bravely lecturing everyone that we are not allowed to call uniformed forces putting kids in cages in camps Nazis. Why? Because its not clear whether or not they have a plan for genocide. Meanwhile, right above her (see the pic up there?) was a survivor whose entire family had been sent the Nazi camps, and said: this is exactly how it all it started. Please, listen to us!
Do you see the terrible irony? How sad and funny it is? So. When is it fair to call them Nazis? Can we call them Nazis yet?
Lets use this historians funny and trivial definition of how not to think it. If an actual plan for genocide, as in some kind of cartoon-villain PowerPoint deck, is the bar, then 99.9% of actual German Nazis werent ever Nazisthey werent in on it, remember. In fact, even the actual Nazis werent Nazis when the Nazi party was founded, at Kristallnacht, or when the war beganbecause the plans for said genocide werent drafted until 1941. LOL. How absurd and ridiculous these knots of illogic are. We do a poor job of thinking these days.
So. When we can we call Nazis Nazis? Shall we nuance ourselves into oblivion? Hitler was a particular biochemical body! That body has never been found! Only people who had contact with this entity can be called Nazis! or maybe Well, they arent wearing the historically accurate 1939 SS logo while they put kids into campsso they cant be Nazis. My friends, if this is the limit of our thinking, the truth is we have been made fools of. Because Nazism is more than that, isnt it? But in what way?
I think we can startjust start, mind youby defining some very simple and eminently reasonable criteria for when to call a Nazi a Nazi. If we cannot, then we have failed at being civilized people, in maybe the most simple and important way, havent we?
Lets begin with the definition of crimes against humanity. State-sponsored, designed, and executed. Mass Deportation. Forcible transfer. Ethnic, religious, or sectarian persecution. And then the obvious ones. Genocide, mass murder, camps, etcetera. The reason that we had to come up with this idea of a crime against humanityone that offends not just its victims, but all humankind, was precisely that all these acts are more morally charged than simple crimes.
A Nazi is someone who, by omission or commission, intends crimes against humanity. It is that simple.
Lets sketch out some criteria. And if your eyes glaze over during this part, just skip it...

Once again the world faces a long hot summer of discontent, with the major action likely to be in Europe and East Asia this year. The EU is likely to experience regime change due to popular anger as warm weather brings in yet another massive wave of mostly male Muslim immigrants. In the Far East, the summit meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean strongman Kim Jong-un has led to serious plotting to revive a Manchurian empire straddling from Mongolia to Northern China to Korea to Japan, according to multiple independent sources, including CIA and Japanese military intelligence.
Lets start with the situation in Europe, where governments in
Austria, Italy, Sweden, and elsewhere are waking up to the fact
that the so-called refugee crisis is actually a Muslim
invasion. This is no exaggeration, since over 60% of the
roughly five million refugees who have arrived in Europe since 2013
are men. Put another way, an army of three million
military-age Muslim men has invaded Europe by stealth means.
These statistics come from Eurostat via Wikipedia.
This is not just a random occurrence, either. The refugees are being handed false papers; for example, Afghan and Pakistani men are being given travel expenses and allowances, as well as fake Syrian passports by the P2 Freemason self-appointed social engineers who are behind this crisis. As we have mentioned before, we were told when we visited the P2 in Italy a few years ago that their plan was to force Islam and Christianity to fight each other in order to merge the two into a single one-world religion controlled by them.
This is the background to a series of news events that popped up
last week as the warm weather began in earnest. First of all,
we have the new Italian government getting into a war of words with
France after deciding to stop admitting boats filled with
Then we have the government of Austria kicking out imams and
mobilizing its border police as a wave of 80,000 migrants
approaches its border.
Also, as we mentioned last week, Sweden has mobilized its Home
Guard for the first time in 40 years to deal with the lawless
government no-go zones created inside Sweden by these mostly Muslim

A financial storm is coming.
Weve all known about it for some time, to the point that many of us want to believe it will just go away or will forever be delayed as long as the world accepts U.S. dollars.
To some extent, thats true. The world will do everything it can to delay the inevitable systemic crisis we see for the entire global financial system.
Here in the U.S., we are starting to see signs of a top: auto loans, student debt, and consumer and government obligations are far past the point of sustainability.
Much of this debt-fueled growth has paid for a lot of prosperity around the world for decades.
For most retirees and people over 50, they are headed towards a doomsday scenario. Any trust in the current financial system will lead to absolute poverty over the next 10 years.
