- Virtual Shield VPN - the easiest way to create a home VPN. Go to: https://www.virtualshield.com/billstill Good morning, Im still reporting on: Seth Rich Murder Sleuth Shot , 2110 Synopsis: The most prominent man still investigating the Seth Rich murder has been shot, then run over by a former investigator he employed. Jack Burkman, aged 46, the DC lobbyist who has offered a $130,000 reward for information on the murder of DNC Data Manager Seth Rich, was shot last week, then run over with an SUV according to Mondays Washington Post. Burkman had received a phone call from a man claiming to be a senior FBI official who had information on the Rich murder. The caller said he would leave envelopes containing the information under an orange traffic cone in the parking deck at the Key Bridge Marriott in Rosslyn, VA, directly across the Potomac River from Georgetown University. When Burkman tried to retrieve the envelopes from under the cone, he was shot multiple times, then run over by an SUV driven by Kevin Doherty, also aged 46, one of Burkmans former investigators. Burkman spent 3 days in the hospital. Doherty was charged with use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and two counts of malicious wounding. He is currently jailed in the Arlington County Detention facility. Burkman had fired Doherty when he had spoken to the press without authorization. Last July, Burkman sent him a cease-and-desist letter.

Example of Hillary Using Projection Lying Technique, 2109 The Still Report

- Doterra Essential Oil products: https://www.doterra.com/US/en/site/BethStill Good morning, Im still reporting on: Example of Hillary Using Projection Lying Technique, 2109 Synopsis: One of the most effective techniques in hiding ones guilt in any matter is the projection technique where you accuse what you are guilty of on your enemy. For example, if one of your children Child #1 - comes running to you yelling She hit me. Then the second child comes in seconds later saying, no, she hit me. The first thing you, as the parent, has to deal with is which one is lying. But if the lying one continues to lie, then the charge of the innocent one is effectively blunted sometimes to nothingness. Hillary Clinton has discovered that this projection technique works, and so, she is using it more and more. Last week, Clinton did the following interview. Unless you are fairly well schooled in the current events of the day, you could fall for this. [insert 1] This woman is THE best at lying with a straight face. I wonder what percentage of the American people believe this? Im sure a growing number see through this as a lie but dont know exactly how to categorize the technique. This is projection blame what you, yourself, are guilty of on your opponent. Im sure that for at least the majority of her core supporters, this is all they need. Hillary said it, so it must be true but nothing could be further from the truth. There has not even been one allegation that President Trump has profited from his time as president. This is a naked lie on the part of Clinton - a brazen piece of projection lying. [insert] Good Lord! May this womans tongue burn with fire. God is not mocked. Trump is operating within the law. She and her husband are the ones throughout their entire political careers who have operated completely outside the law.

Gen Flynn Returns to Battle, 2108 The Still Report

Good morning, Im still reporting on: Gen Flynn Returns to Battle, 2108 Synopsis: The last time I was working in the Pentagon, Gen. Mike Flynn was the most respected name in military intelligence. Thats why I was pretty surprised when he was taken down so quickly by deep state operatives before President Trumps inauguration. Gen. Flynn was forced to take a plea deal to keep an out-of-control special counsel operation from bankrupting his entire family. Now that the Washington legal community understands the flawed basis for anything based on the illegal FISA warrants, Flynns sentencing has been put off and you can be sure to add indefinitely to that because more than likely, that conviction will be vacated by the government on some Friday afternoon where some huge sex scandal breaks out inside the beltway. As head of the DIA from July 2012 to his retirement in Aug. 2014, Flynn knows the complete history of every loser swamp dweller inside the Justice Department and FBI. Unlike this crooked, self-serving, power-mad cadre of the CCC, Flynn spent his life in selfless service to his nation. Unlike the swamp dwellers, he is willing to give his life for his country. And also unlike these denizens of the Satanic deep, Gen. Flynn lead an exemplary life without stain until their framing experts stepped in. Now, however, Flynn is once again unchained. Late last week he made his first public appearance to endorse California congressional candidate Omar Navarro in La Quinta, California. This can only mean one thing; Flynn is returning to the fight and on the front lines. Target #1: Deep State. As one close friend told the True Pundit: He knows where many political bodies are buried in D.C. and what does he have to lose? Nothing. The Mueller prosecution of Flynn has bankrupted the General. After 33 years of selfless military service, he has been forced to sell his house to pay his legal bills. Yes, he will eventually get it all back and more after the lawsuits are over, but at what age? He doesnt really care.

Vehicle Safety Inspections Dont Increase Safety Marginal REVOLUTION

In 2003 I wrote The Politician and Mechanic Conspire to Rip Me Off in which I cited a study (another here) showing that annual automobile safety inspections do not increase safety but do waste time and money and generate unnecessary repairs. I have continued to rant about these wasteful policies ever since.

Today, however, there is some good news. As vehicle quality is increasing, some states are actually discontinuing these safety inspections including the District of Columbia in 2009, New Jersey in 2010, and Mississippi in 2015. Repeal, however, is still hotly contested in many states:

If [the repeal] is passed, said Texas Senator Eddie Lucero, Jr., I am going to have trouble sleeping at night. Why are you willing to place yourself and Texans in danger by passing [this repeal]? Similarly, Utah Representative Jim Dunnigan claimed that many of his constituents would drive their car until their brakes fall off and their muffler falls off and their tires fall off and that an inspection was the only way to ensure that vehicle owners took care of potential safety concerns. These claims are backed by most automobile service stations, who generally profit from performing the inspections and now claim that repealing the inspection program will definitely result in more accidents.

Thats from a new paper by Hoagland and Woolley that uses New Jersey, a repeal state, to test whether repeal leads to more accidents. Using a synthetic control methodology and precise data on fatal accident rates from throughout the United States, Hoagland and Woolley conclude that:

removing the requirements resulted in no significant increases in any of traffic fatalities per capita, traffic fatalities due specifically to car failure per capita, or the frequency of accidents due to car failure. Therefore, we conclude that vehicle safety inspections do not represent an efficient use of government funds, and do not appear to have any significantly mitigating effect on the role of car failure in traffic accidents.

Its time to ditch the annual safety inspection and either move to no inspection system at all or like Maryland move to a system that requires safety inspections only at transfer. Im not convinced that is necessary either, since at transfer is precisely when the buyer will run an inspection anyway, but at least that system would reduce the number of inspections significantly.

Hat tip: Kevin Lewis.

China estimate of the day Marginal REVOLUTION

But because of the way trade deficits are measured, almost all the value of those components is attributed to China, which exports the final product. Reuters reports that 61 million iPhones were shipped from China to the US in 2017 and suggests that just a single phonethe iPhone 7 model, released in 2016 and on sale for all of last yearaccounted for $15.7 billion of the trade deficit, or 4.4%.

Louis Kuijs, head of Asia economics research at Oxford Economics, told Reuters if trade deficits were measured to account for the complex nature of global supply chains like the ones used by sophisticated consumer products like smartphones, the US-China trade deficit would be about 36% lower, or $239 billion.

Prisoners who study prison Marginal REVOLUTION

After leaving prison, some ex-convicts are becoming academics themselves. There is a growing convict criminology group, which has members in countries around the world.

Stephen Richards spent nine years in prison for conspiracy to distribute marijuana, and is now professor emeritus of criminology at the University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh.

He was arrested while he was a college student, and finished his degree by correspondence while in U.S. federal prison. After he was released from prison, he went directly to graduate school and completed a Masters degree and a PhD.

Five years out of prison, I was a professor, and I became one of the first convict criminology professors, he says.

Richardss experiences in jail made him want to work to fix the system once he got out.

Part of being a convict criminologist is realizing that you know something that most academics in the social sciences dont know. Youve got inside information about whats wrong with the criminal justice system  literally, inside. You know what a failure the system is, and you want to do something about it, he says.

That is from CBC Radio, via Michelle Dawson.  And here is the Journal of Prisoners on Prisons.

FANG: Why this bubble is ready to burst Follow The Money

WE ARE deep into the tech bubble now. I remember the feeling from last time. It is like missing a train a sense that everyone else is going somewhere extremely important and youre missing out.

You can see this bubble in crypto-currencies and the stock market most clearly. The companies they call FANG Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google have swollen like rivers in flood.

Google (now officially called Alphabet) is the grandpa of the group. Its stock has gone up from $400 to $1200 in the past five years. A very rapid tripling, but not so impressive compared to the rest.

Amazon has gone from $260 a share to $1600 a sixfold increase in five years. Facebook has gone from $26 to $181 a near sevenfold jump.

Netflix though takes the prize for growth, shooting up from $26 to $320 in five years a more than twelve-fold increase.

As you can see on the charts, Amaz...

How American Thought Became Nihilism Stories by umair haque on Medium

Can a Society Function When Nothing Matters?

So. Literally overnight, a common theme emerged: the recent revelations about propaganda on Facebook couldnt have played much of a role in anything!! cried pundits, columnists, thinkers, and intellectuals in unison. Ezra Klein and Ross Douthat (among many others) reached such a conclusion inless than 48 hours.

Does this strike you as funny? A little well, not just premature, but weird? It made me imagine a conversation with an American intellectual, pundit, thinker, or leaderjust picture an amalgam of all them.

You say: Hey, do you think propaganda played a role in sparking extremism and radicalizing people?

Nope! they reply happily.

Wait, do you think a broken economy is causing people to turn to authoritarianism, just like in, say, the 1930s, or the 1890s?

No! The cause is culture! It can only be culture!

ButAmerica, Italy, Germany, and Turkey dont have similar cultures, you whisper, baffled, and then say: Sodo you think the lack of a social contract in America matters? Maybe people when theyre desperate and broken are more prone to believe in foolish things, you know, turn extreme.

No! It doesnt matter! None of it matters!!!

Ah. See the theme? This is what you read, and I read, endlesslyif you pick apart the words, and search for the message.

Nothing matters. Nothing. Not the economy. Not the social contract. Not even the revelation of propaganda conducted at a social scale via addictive technologies. There is quite literally nothing that matters to American thought anymore. The only thing that counts to it seems to be private gain and advantage, pulling yourself up by your bootstraps, getting rich, mechanical materialist individualism. Nothingnot even life or death, because, after all, it still debates school massacres and basic healthcare (which, by the way, even Rwanda thinks matters, so its developing). Its funny when you see it, isnt it? And a little sad. After all, how can a way of thinking in which nothing matters, wellmatter? Where does it take people?

So lets explore the consequences of this way of thinkingnothing matters, dude!! If the economy doesnt matter, then theres no need for an agenda to fix it. If the social contract doesnt matter, then theres no need for a plan to provide people functioning healthcare, education, media, transport, retirementdecent lives. If propaganda doesnt matter, then theres no need to sort truth from fiction.

(Now people, if enough of them believe in this foolish myth, will simply stop caring about things that in fact do matterbecause the truth is that in no society ever to exist will economics, propaganda, or social contracts somehow not matterif they could, wed be super-beings. Yet p...

This from a reader: PaulCraigRoberts.org

This from a reader:

Its strange that a British-American intelligence TV drama Strike Back had several episodes featuring Novichok nerve agent and Evil Russkies last year. Someone orchestrating political theater in the UK watches a lot of TV, or is advised by its producers.
Episode 50 ran in the U.K on November 21 2017 and in the U.S. on February 23 2018:
Meanwhile, General Lzsl shuts down Section 20, forcing Donovan to work in secret. She discovers that Zaryn is in fact Karim Markov, a Russian scientist who allegedly killed his colleagues with Novichok, a nerve agent they invented.
Episodes 51 ran in the U.K on November 28 2017 and in the U.S. on March 2 2018:
Section 20 track Berisovichs meth lab in Turov where Markov is making more Novichok and destroy it, though Berisovich escapes with Markov.

Mammoth China-Russia gas pipeline nearing completion Gazprom The BRICS Post

Russian President Vladimir Putin Chinese President Xi Jinping (centre) and President of Mongolia Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj [Image: PPIO]


Days after both Chinese and Russian Presidents were re-elected, the Russian energy giant Gazprom announced that a mammoth gas project between the two countries was nearing completion.

In May 2014, Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping singed a landmark $400 billion gas deal under which Gazprom will supply the China National Petroleum Corp (CNPC) 38 billion cubic meters (BCM) of natural gas every year for 30 years.

Gazprom on Wednesday said that the Power of Siberia natural gas pipeline is 75 per cent complete and runs over 1,600 kilometers.

The project will strengthen Russian-Chinese energy cooperation, and defines the main terms of the natural gas supply from Russia to China through the East-Route, including the cross-border section of the gas pipeline across the Amur River (the Heilongjiang River in China) near Blagoveshchensk (capital of the Amur region in the Russian Far East) and Chinas border city of Heihe.

The pipeline has geopolitical and strategic value as it means Russias energy export targets are now eastward, and China can wean itself off the polluting coal as an energy supply.

The deal has brought both countries, BRICS members, closer and has been a massive boost to Sino-Russian ties even as Russia struggles with EU and US sanctions over Ukraine.

On Monday, Xi congratulated Putin on his landslide presidential election win. Putin did the same a few days earlier.

Detroit's Backyard Beekeepers Grassroots Economic Organizing

"We're starting to see more bees in the city," said Timothy Paule, who, with his girlfriend, started a nonprofit to build beehives on vacant city plots. "Some people are planting urban farms, and they're adding bees to help with the yield. Others are doing their part and placing hives in backyards to help the declining bee population."

As the weather warms up, their bees and millions of others will get busy.

Paule is among a growing number of people in Detroit and around the globe who are cultivating urban beehives as part of social missions and small businesses. It is a trend that has prompted cities to lift beekeeping limitations and inspired entrepreneurs to sell beekeeping starter kits and the bees' honey.

Cooperatives and the Future of Work Grassroots Economic Organizing

A lot of resources are going to be spent in our city. Therefore the questions is: who is going to get them? Who is going to benefit? says Kali Akuno, of Cooperation Jackson.

The question of the future of work is above all a question of power and ownership. It is a question the cooperative movement seeks practical answers for, every day, in neighbourhoods, cities and regions.

An international survey among 10,000 members of the general population by the consulting firm PwC found that 53% believe technological innovations will be the most transformative factor in shaping the future world of work more than resource scarcity and climate change, shifts in global economic power, migrations and urbanisation. This is also the dominant narrative in the mainstream media. Yet, co-operators understand that technology follows social and economic power, not the other way round.

Has Russia Had Enough? PaulCraigRoberts.org

Has Russia Had Enough?

Paul Craig Roberts

This morning I watched a briefing the Russian Foreign Ministry provided for the diplomatic community where international toxic substances experts presented information concerning the alleged nerve agent used in the alleged attack on Skripal and his daughter. This information has been known for some time, and none of it has been reported in the Western presstitute media.

In the briefing the Russians once again relied on facts and existing agreements that govern the investigation of such events and asked why the British were demanding explanations from Russia when the British refuse to comply with established procedures and refuse to produce any evidence of what the British allege to have occurred.

The response from the US and French embassy representatives was simply to state that they needed no evidence to stand in solidarity with their British friends, that Russia was guilty by accusation alone, and that they would hold Russia accountable.

The benefit of this absurd response, which the Russians declared to be shameful, is to make clear to the Russian government that it is a waste of time to try, yet again, to confront unsupported accusations from the West with facts and appeals to follow the specified legal processes. The West simply does not care. The issue is not the facts of the case. The agenda is to add another layer to the ongoing demonization of Russia.

Sooner or later the Russian government will realize that its dream of working with its Western partners is not to be and that the hostile actions and false accusations from the West indicate that the West is set on a course of conflict with Russia and is preparing the insouciant Western peoples to accept the consequences.

The Russian official hosting the briefing compared the Skirpal accusation with the Malaysian Airliner accusation and the many others that resulted in instant accusations against Russia and refusal to cooperate in investigations.

The Russian official also drew the parallel of the accusations against Russia with the US and UK false accusations against Serbia, which led to the bombing of Serbia, and to the false accusations against Iraq, for which Colin Powell and Tony Blair had to apologize, that resulted in the destruction of Iraq and the death and displacement of millions of Iraqis.

The Russian official also said, pointedly, that the days were gone when no one challenged statements by the US government. The world, he said, is no longer unipolar. Russia, he said, does not respond to unsupported allegations. He also said that the way the Americans, British, and French are proceeding suggests that the Skirpal affair is an orchestration created for the purpose of accusing Russia.

This conclusion is supported by the history of US and UK interventions. In recent times we have seen the Wests orchestrated interventions based on obvious and blatant li...

Solutions Only Arise Outside the Status Quo oftwominds-Charles Hugh Smith

Solutions are only possible outside these ossified, self-serving centralized hierarchies.

The state and culture that is Utah Marginal REVOLUTION

SALT LAKE CITY So-called free-range parenting will soon be the law of the land in Utah after the governor signed what appears to be the countrys first measure to formally legalize allowing kids to do things on their own to foster self-sufficiency.

The bill, which Gov. Gary Herbert announced Friday that hed signed, specifies that it isnt neglectful to let kids do things alone like travel to school, explore a playground or stay in the car. The law takes effect May 8.

Utahs law is the first in the country, said Lenore Skenazy, who coined the term free-range parent. A records search by the National Conference of State Legislatures didnt turn up any similar legislation in other states.

Council tax is a farce its time for a real property tax Resolution Foundation

Its an open secret that council tax is a dogs dinner. It was conjured up in the early 1990s as a half-way house between the hated poll tax and the old domestic rates system, meaning those in top-band properties have much lower tax rates than those in cheaper homes. In England and Scotland, it is based on valuations that are 27 years out of date. And it allows local authorities with the highest property wealth to charge the lowest rates of all.

The result is that council tax only weakly relates to property values, and is therefore highly regressive. On average those living in 100,000 homes pay around five times the tax rate of those living in 1 million mansions. And a fifteen-minute walk in South London can take you from a 2.1 million flat with a 700 council tax bill to a 400,000 flat with a council tax bill 66 per cent higher. The property tax label council tax gets given is a farce it looks far more like the poll tax it replaced.

So why isnt council tax a major political battleground? Politicians may be wary of touching it given it is used to finance local government. Or they may be scarred by botched revaluation attempts. Or maybe it reflects the national mood where wealth of which property is a major part is much less often discussed than incomes despite being huge and much more unequal.

But even if they ever did these excuses no longer pass muster, for two reasons.

First, Britains ageing population means that unless we want to start dismantling the NHS, the state is going to need more money in the coming decades, to the tune of 60 billion by 2040. Relying only on the usual mix of income and consumption taxes to plug this gap appears challenging were talking 15p on the basic rate of income tax for earners emerging from the worst decade for pay since the Napoleonic wars. Taxes on wealth are an obvious candidate to share some of the burden, given theyve stayed flat over the past 30 years while wealth has grown 2.5 times faster than the economy.

Second, because it treats big homes and second homes favourably and under-taxes property relative to other investments, council tax has pushed up house prices. This particularly hits members of younger generations, who are increasingly shut out of home ownership, live in lower-quality houses, and have longer commutes than predecessors. And to rub salt into wounds, younger households now pay higher council tax rates than older ones. With intergenerational fairness emerging as a hot political issue these inefficiencies and inequities cant be ignored.

The good news is we know how to fix it. A range of experts agree t...

Not quite pay growth party-time yet Resolution Foundation

Today the ONS published the latest pay growth figures covering the year to January. These, along with yesterdays inflation data, suggest that the squeeze which has dragged down real pay for twelve months is finally over.

However, at the risk of sounding Eeyore-ish, pay growth is likely to remain subdued for the rest of the year, if not longer. Nominal pay growth is currently running at 2.6 per cent and, although inflation is falling, if it settles at 2 per cent then the best we can look forward to is pay growth of around 0.6 per cent this year.

Whether your real pay will rise depends on where you work. Pay growth is currently rising faster in the private sector, and there are signs that it could pick up further in future. However, public sector workers will have to wait until new higher pay settlements are agreed to see real pay growth. Today it was agreed that NHS staff will get above-inflation pay rises this year, but the promised 6.5 per cent rise between now and 2021 is just above inflation, which is expected to be 6 per cent over the period.

The picture is a lot brighter in the jobs market. Employment and unemployment have plateaued at record levels, with little sign yet of any fall. Employment has been between...

In tech, we fear what we cant control Marginal REVOLUTION

That is the topic of my new Bloomberg column, here is one bit:

Like drones, driverless cars possess some features of an especially potent scare story. They are a new and exciting technology, and so stories about them get a lot of clicks. We dont actually know how safe they are, and that uncertainty will spook people above and beyond whatever is the particular level of risk. Most of all, driverless cars by definition involve humans not feeling in direct control. It resembles how a lot of people feel in greater danger when flying than driving a car, even though flying is usually safer. Driverless cars raise a lot of questions about driver control: Should you be allowed to sleep in the backseat? Or must you stay by the wheel? That focuses our minds and feelings on the issue of control all the more.

And:

The recent brouhaha over Facebook and Cambridge Analytica (read here and here) reflects some similar issues. Could most Americans clearly and correctly articulate exactly what went wrong in this episode? Probably not, but people do know that when it comes to social networks, their personal data and algorithms, they dont exactly feel in control. The murkiness of the events and legal obligations is in fact part of the problem.

When I see a new story or criticism about the tech world, I no longer ask whether the tech companies poll as being popular (they do). I instead wonder whether voters feel in control in a world with North Korean nuclear weapons, an e...

*Waste of a Nation* Marginal REVOLUTION

The authors are Assa Doron and Robin Jeffrey and the subtitle is Garbage and Growth in India, here is one excerpt from this worthy book:

In India, the tool for cleaning teeth and gums had long been a twig usually taken from a neem tree, which can be plucked each morning, chewed into a teeth-cleaning brush, and then thrown away.  Neem also has medicinal properties.  Tooth powders gained popularity in towns and cities in preindependence times, but in smaller towns as late as the 1960s shops that sold toothpaste had to be searched for.  Consumption of toothpaste was meager.  Indias toothpaste industry in the mid-1970s was estimated to produce about 1,200 metric tons a year for a population of more than 600 million.  An Australian population of 16 million consumed 5,000 metric tons of toothpaste.  By the late 1980s, the Indian market was said to be growing rapidly, but the industry estimated that only 15 percent of the population used toothpaste and that per capita consumption was only 30 grams a year.

By 2014, a single new factory set up in Gujarat by Colgate-Palmolive was capable of making 15,000 metric tons of toothpaste a year, more than ten times the quantity produced in all of India two generations earlier.

S Africa current account deficit dips to 2.5% of GDP 2017 The BRICS Post

Account deficit to GDP has narrowed in South Africa, according to 2017 statistics

The South African current account deficit on the balance of payments narrowed to 2.5% of gross domestic product (GDP) from 2.8% in 2016, the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) said in its latest Quarterly Bulletin.

On a quarterly basis however, the current account deficit widened to 2.9% of GDP in the fourth quarter from 2.1% in the third quarter as import growth outpaced export growth resulting in a narrowing in the trade surplus in goods.

The import penetration ratio (real merchandise imports as a ratio of real gross domestic expenditure) increased to 26.8% in the fourth quarter from 25.4% in the third quarter. On a full year basis, the volume of total merchandise imports rose by 2.6% in 2017 after a 4.0% fall in 2016.

South Africas terms of trade improved further in the fourth quarter of 2017 as the rand price of exports, including gold, increased at a faster pace than that of imports. For 2017 as a whole, the terms of trade strengthened by 4.8% after only a 1.4% gain in 2016.

The shortfall on the services, income and current transfer account widened by
11.0% in the fourth quarter of 2017 causing the deficit as a percentage of GDP to increase to 4.4% in the fourth quarter from 4.1% in the third quarter.

On a full year basis, the deficit on the services, income and current transfer account relative to GDP increased to 3.9% in 2017 from 3.6% in 2016.

Gross dividend payments to non-residents contracted by 2.4% for 2017 as weak South African economic growth impeded dividend payments. This was the second consecutive annual decline in gross dividend payments since the global financial crisis of 2008/9. Similar to dividend payments, 2017 also marked the second consecutive annual decline in dividend receipts.

The increase in net payments for services was moderated by a second consecutive quarterly increase in gross travel receipts. However, gross travel receipts improved by only 1.0% for 2017 as a whole, compared with an increase of almost 11% in 2016, as xenophobia, the strong rand and Day Zero headlines have slowed tourism growth to only 2.4% in 2017 from 12.8% in 2016.

The slower growth in tourism receipts in 2017 was affected by the significant strengthening in the external value of the rand against major currencies on an annual average basis, for the first time since 2010.

A noticeable increase in net current transfers contributed to a widening of the d...

Markets in everything, probably more where this came from edition Marginal REVOLUTION

Mr. Sarkozy, 63, was taken into custody in Nanterre, northwest of Paris, after answering a police summons, according to a French judicial official who spoke on the condition of anonymity, in line with department policy

The suspicions behind this case first emerged in 2012, when the investigative news website Mediapart published a report suggesting that Mr. Sarkozys 2007 campaign had received up to 50 million euros, or nearly $62 million at current exchange rates, from the regime of Colonel Qaddafi, the longtime Libyan strongman who was killed in 2011. Such support would have violated Frances strict campaign finance laws, which cap spending and prohibit foreign funding.

Remembering Peter G. Peterson Concord Coalition

Remembering Peter G. Peterson swinn Tue, 03/20/2018 - 16:07

The Concord Coalition mourns the loss of its founding President Peter G. Peterson, who died today at the age of 91. Executive Director Robert L. Bixby issued the following statement:

Pete Peterson lived the American Dream. As a depression-era child of Greek immigrants, Pete rose from dishwasher at his parents diner in Kearney, Nebraska to become one of the nations top business leaders, a presidential cabinet member and a best-selling author.

He began sounding the alarm about the nations unsustainable debt many years ago, warning that demographic trends, rising health care costs, and political procrastination could jeopardize the countrys future. But Pete did more than sound the alarm. He was a tireless advocate for bipartisan reforms to put the federal budget on a sustainable path, encourage economic growth, preserve Americas global leadership and protect our children and future generations from excessive government debt.

His desire to ensure that the American Dream would endure for future generations led to his passion for fiscal responsibility and to his co-founding of The Concord Coalition with Paul Tsongas and Warren Rudman in 1992. Pete served for many years as president of The Concord Coalition and was a very generous supporter of our public engagement efforts. We continue to draw inspiration from his example.

As Rudman once said, Pete Peterson cares about the debt because hes a patriot. He truly believes in this country and the promise it holds for all its citizens and he wants to make sure that the promise will be there for future generations.

Our condolences go out to Petes family and to the staff of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation as they carry on Petes legacy of support for fiscal and generational responsibility.

The employee ownership solution to the silver tsunami Grassroots Economic Organizing

Linda and Gregory Coles founded their preschool, A Childs Place, in their Queens, NY basement in 1983. Over the years it grew steadily and developed a deeply loyal community. Now they own a large building, employ more than 50 people and serve hundreds of families. Former students bring their own kids to A Childs Place. The Coles have a similar generational commitment: their children now manage the school. As they looked to retire, they couldnt imagine selling the business to an outside buyer who would change it or, more likely, tear it down to build condos in a hot housing market. So they asked an unusual question: could they sell the business they had built to the employees who had built it with them?

With support from The Working World, a technical assistance provider and lender in New York City, this is exactly what the Coles are doing. They are preserving community access to affordable and high-quality preschool in a city where preschool, especially for low-income families, is at crisis-level scarcity. They are also creating a new generation of local small business owners: their employees.

Rock City Coffee workers to become business owners Grassroots Economic Organizing

Finally, last Friday, March 8, Rock City Cafe and Rock City Coffee Roasters officially transitioned from a single-owner corporation to The Rock City Employee Cooperative. Ward will stay on as the companys manager for another year, but after that, theyll be on their own. With all of the legal and accounting fees, technical assistance and business training, Ward estimates that the entire transition cost about $20,000. Having partially financed the deal, one of the advantages for Ward is that she will continue to receive an income stream. And the employees will get a share of the profits at the end of the year according to the number of hours they work, which is how they build equity in the business beyond their initial membership fee. 

Its an opportunity for them to actually build equity in a business and also create a type of retirement for them, said Ward. If one of them decides to leave 10 years from now, theyve got a vault of equity in the business that will be paid out to them.

But for the employees, its not just about the profit sharing, but also about bringing democracy into the workplace. Roaster Kevin Malmstrom said the members have begun forming different committees in charge of promotion, merchandising and field sales.

Its time to properly abolish the poll tax Resolution Foundation

What is Britains most badly designed tax? A leading contender has to be council tax.

Its a tax based on 27 year old house valuations, but this isnt even the biggest problem. Council tax would bear little relation to property values even if it were revalued. Typical council tax bills for the most expensive homes are only three times as high as for the cheapest. By contrast, the typical values of those top homes were nearly seven times as high.

This lack of variation in tax bills is compounded by regional differences that mean tax rates tend to be higher in poorer parts of the country. As The Economist puts it, Buckingham Palace attracts a council-tax bill of 1,400 a year, around the same as some flats in Bradford.

Its failure as a property tax meant that council tax did little to keep the housing market stable or help tax housing wealth increases in the 2000s. And its regressive nature means the tax now falls hardest on younger and poorer people, who are most likely to live in lower value homes that are proportionally over-taxed. Whats more, although the UKs other property tax stamp duty is more progressive, it is accepted as being bad for the housing market through discouraging people from moving.

Council tax is now far too close to the poll tax it was meant to replace. At the same time, an ageing population is set to put further strain on the public finances, with more funding likely needed for health and social care. So far, some additional money has in fact come from hasty increases in council tax. But we may be approaching a point where even more significant tax increases are needed and a complete replacement of council tax could kill many birds with one stone: raising revenue in a way that is fair both across and within generations.

A full replacement tax could be proportional to value for example a charge of 0.5% of value per year. Or it could adopt a more progressive structure akin to the one we have for income tax with a tax-free allowance per property and higher tax rates for the most valuable properties. And we should aim for annual revaluation a relatively easy (and useful) task in todays data-rich world and one accomplished without fuss in many other nations. International experience also suggests that the UK is unusual in making tenants pay property tax rather than landlords, and that we should look to develop an infrastructure for allowing the deferral of tax for cash-poor but asset-rich groups.

As council tax is currently so unfair, our new Resolution Foundation report suggests reform would leave a large majority of people bett...

Trumps Misunderstanding of Protectionism Michael Hudson PaulCraigRoberts.org

Trumps Misunderstanding of Protectionism
Michael Hudson

Trumps series of threats this week was a one-two punch. First, he threatened to impose national security tariffs on steel and aluminum, primarily against Canada and Mexico (along with Korea and Japan). Then, he suggested an alternative: He would exempt these countries IF they agree to certain U.S. demands.

But these demands make so little economic sense that they should be viewed as an exercise in what academia used to call power politics. Or in Trumps world, Us versus Them, a zero-sum game in which he has to show that America wins, they lose.

It wont work. Trumps diplomatic ploy with Mexico is to say that hell be willing to exempt them from the steel and aluminum tariffs if they agree to (1) build the wall that he promised to make them build, and (2) give other special favors to the United States. He can then go to American voters and say, See, we won; Mexico lost.

This is unlikely to elicit a Mexican surrender. Its president already has said that building a wall makes no sense, and cancelled the planned diplomatic visit to Washington last week. Giving in to Trumps election promise to American voters (or more to the point, indulging in his own ego trip about the wall) would be political suicide. Trump would crow that he made Mexico bow to his bidding.

Matters arent much better in Canada. While some Pennsylvania and Ohio steel companies probably will try to make Trump look good by hiring back a few hundred workers if and when the tariffs are announced, Canada and other suppliers would have to be laid off. Canadian resentment already has been building up for decades, ever since the auto agreement of the 1960s and 70s that favored U.S. suppliers.

But the real economic problem comes from within the United States itself. If new steel workers are hired, they may be laid off in a few months. Most important is the bigger economy-wide picture: The Chamber of Commerce and other groups have calculated that the loss of jobs in steel- and aluminum-using industries will far outnumber the new hiring of steel and aluminum workers. 

NPR on Wednesday had a maker of beer kegs explain that if the cost of steel goes up, he cant afford to match the prices of foreign keg manufacturers who buy their raw materials cheaper and do NOT have tariffs raised on higher manufactures.

There are many good arguments for protectionism. These arguments are in fact much better than the free-trade patter talk used to indoctrinate college economics students. Of all the branches of todays mainstream economics, free-trade theory is the most unrealistic. If it were realistic, Britain, the United States and Germany never would have risen to world industrial power. (I review the fallacies of free-trade theory in Trade, Development and Foreign Debt.)

Economic history provides a long and excellent successful pedigree of good arguments for protect...

Higher Prices, Administrative Costs Drive U.S. Health Care Inefficiency Concord Coalition

Higher Prices, Administrative Costs Drive U.S. Health Care Inefficiency swinn Tue, 03/20/2018 - 11:34

A new study in the Journal of the American Medical Association looks across the health care systems of the 10 highest-income countries around the globe to examine what makes our system uniquely inefficient -- spending almost twice as much per person, with worse population health outcomes on measures like life expectancy.

What the authors find -- that our health care prices and administrative costs are significantly higher than everywhere elses -- isnt a complete surprise. Yet the authors also were able to challenge some long-held assumptions about the reasons for our nations exceptionally poor health care value.

Relative to the other countries, our demographic characteristics dont explain our higher spending and lower relative outcomes. We have the youngest population in the group with higher rates of obesity but lower rates of smoking.

Some researchers have suggested that perhaps lower U.S. social spending led to worse population health. The new study, however, found few differences in general social spending between the U.S. and other countries.

The study also found few differences in the mix of specialists relative to primary care doctors or in the utilization of health care services (thought to be incentivized in the U.S. via the fee-for-service system or the medical malpractice system). We also spend less on hospital care as a share of total health spending than other countries do.

Where the U.S. did differ was on its higher salaries for doctors and nurses that are not explained by the cost of medical education. The prices for brand-name drugs are higher in the U.S. and thus we spend more on prescription drugs even though our generic drug usage is higher than in other countries. Our administra...

America Is Losing Its Economy PaulCraigRoberts.org

America Is Losing Its Economy

Paul Craig Roberts

From John Williams proprietary report:

Subject to Likely Downside Annual Benchmark Revisions this Coming Friday, February Industrial Production Jumped by 1.1% (0.9% Net of Revisions), Reflecting  improbable Strength in Manufacturing and Mining. 
Despite this perhaps premature report of industrial production gains, Given a Record 122 Months of Non-Expansion, Manufacturing Still Holds Shy of Its Pre-Recession Peak by 3.7% (-3.7%). [That peak was a decade ago!]
Manufacturing Gains Likely Reflected Some Inventory Rebuilding Against Weakening Sales, As Disaster-Recovery Bloat Passes from the System.
Continuing in Nonsensical Monthly Booms and Busts, February Housing Starts Activity Fell by 7.0% (-7.0%), Still Shy by 45.6% (-45.6%) of Recovering Its Pre-Recession Peak.
First-Quarter 2018 GDP Outlook Continued to Weaken. 
Nonetheless, the FOMC Appears Set for a Rate Hike on Wednesday.

Underlying Economic Reality/Conditions: Discussed frequently here, what has happened with underlying economic reality is that broad activity had continued to stagnate and to falter anew, before the multiple natural disasters began to hit in late-August 2017, with Hurricane Harvey. The ensuing natural-disaster recovery boosted fourth-quarter economic activity, in areas ranging from retail sales and industrial production to construction spending and housing starts. That background largely was ignored by the hyper-bulls in the financial markets, who touted the rapidly expanding economy. That concept also received massive popular coverage in the headline media.

Consumer Confidence and Sentiment are booming at multi-year highs, as discussed in the Consumer Liquidity Watch (page 37). The details reflect little more than the tone of the popular press, given how those measures of relative consumer optimism are surveyed. Such was established decades ago by the late Albert Sindlinger, an original consumer pollster, and Dr. David Fan of the University of Minnesota. Restricted consumer liquidity circumstances continue to impair and to constrain broad economic activity.

John Williams of shadowstats.com has a long-term tradition of trying to hold US govenment data reporting agencies and financial presstiutes accountable, but as in every aspect of US reporting fantasies prevail over reality.

For example, according to the Federal Reserve and the presstitute financial press, US inflation is less than 2 percent.  Here is the Chapwood index, based on actually going out and purchasing items in the inflation basket:  http://www.chapwoodindex.com 

As for the great consumer economy we hear about, here are the IRS statistics of the distribution of wage earners by level of net compensation:...

Sheriff Takes Food from Prisoners, Locks up WhistleBlower Marginal REVOLUTION

A sheriff in Alabama bought a house using money that was budgeted to feed jail inmates. When I saw this headlined a week ago I assumed that this was a run-of-the-mill story about white collar fraud and I ignored it. Yesterday, prodded by new developments, I investigated further. The truth is much worse than I had imagined. What the sheriff did was perfectly legal.

Alabama has a Depression-era law that allows sheriffs to keep and retain unspent money from jail food-provision accounts. Sheriffs across the state take excess money as personal income and, in the event of a shortfall, are personally liable for covering the gap.

Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin told the News that he follows that practice of taking extra money from the fund, saying, The law says its a personal account and thats the way Ive always done it.

Sheriffs across the state do the same thing and have for decades. But the scale of the practice is not clear: It is presently unknown how much money sheriffs across the state have taken because most do not report it as income on state financial disclosure forms, the Southern Center for Human Rights wrote in January.

And if that isnt bonkers enough. It gets worse. The primary source for the story, written by journalist Connor Sheets, was Sheriff Entrekins lawnmower, Matt Qualls. Qualls has since been arrested and is now in a jail overseen by Sheriff Entrekin.

Sheets initial story was published on Feb. 18. On Feb. 22, Qualls was arrested and charged with drug trafficking after an anonymous call complained of the smell of marijuana from an apartment.

Qualls, who had never been arrested before, faces six charges and is being held on a $55,000 bond, Sheets reports. He is detained in a jail that Entrekin oversees.

The sheriffs office denies involvement in Qualls case, noting that the landscaper was not arrested or charged by the sheriffs office. The extra charges were added by the Drug Enforcement Unit, which consist of agents drawn from the sheriffs department, the FBI and other law enforcement agencies.

Addendum: You may be reminded of the story that Tyler and I use to open our...

You can find an application and more information here. If you are a professor please invite your students to apply.

Here are some quotes from past attendees of the Outreach Conference:

It was so useful to hear such varied and intriguing aspects of public choice thought. The other members of the conference were fantastic to meet and now Im sure we all have so many new paper ideas and updated perspectives on our original interests, thank you!

Clara Jace, Creighton University

 I found the conference insightful into many different topics. What I think was most unique about the conference was the diversity of ideas, theorems and most importantly, ideas for solutions to these prevalent problems. I think my favorite part of the econ conferences is how quick presenters are to say I dont know to questions and proceed to give the analytical reasoning for both sides of the argument instead of giving a BS answer that may or may not be true. Overall, I have loved this conference.

 Jalee Blackwell, West Texas A & M, School of Business

 Wow, this conference was absolutely exceptional. It provided some of the most interesting and thought-provoking Econ lectures and conversations I have ever had the privilege of engaging in. The opportunity to have one on one discussions with some of the worlds leading minds in these fields was truly an eye opening, educational, and inspiring experience that I wont soon forget.

Profit Alert! Buy This Lithium Stock Future Money Trends

Consider Buying Shares of Wealth Minerals Immediately!

Dear Reader,

Youve waited for this for a long time, and here it is.

In my opinion, its the best near-term lithium takeover target on the public markets.

As of 12 hours ago, Wealth Minerals is the only company in the world, which has the license in place and the first go-ahead of the Chilean government to export lithium from the Atacama Salar, the worlds lowest-cost source of lithium.

FutureMoneyTrends.com profiled Lithium X at CAD$1 and it recently taken out for CAD$2.61 (up 161%)!

We also brought you Advantage Lithium at CAD$0.58, and last December recommended to take profits at CAD$1.32 (up 127%).

Wealth Minerals is being profiled today at CAD$1.94, with future profits unknown (XXX%).

Kenneth Ameduri, co-founder of this letter and chief editor at CrushTheStreet.com, profiled a tiny company called Nano One in 2016 for 40 cents. Today, it trades for CAD$2.35 (up 488%).

The potential gains in the lithium space are ours for the taking, but you have to be unbelievably disciplined because most of the lithium stocks that trade will never make a penny!

This is why we want to begin accumulating sha...
