Why The Mueller Investigation Should EndNow! David Stockman's Contra Corner

Justice Department regulations permit appointment of a special counsel only if (i) there is reason to think that a federal crime has been committed, and (ii) investigating it would present a conflict of interest for the Justice Department or there is another overriding public reason to take the investigation outside DOJ..The regulations require that such an appointment recite the facts justifying the conclusion that a federal crime was committed, and specify the crime. However, the initial appointment of Robert Mueller did neither, referring instead to a national security investigation that a special counsel has no authority to pursue.

Superior/Inferior Disillusion, and Astrology Forecast May 20-26 The Event Chronicle

Perspectives from the Sky

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This past week gave us the Taurus New Moon combined with a strong lineup of Uranus aspects.

It is time to move further forward in a more Taurus practical and solid manner; but we have also just had some wake-up calls that are meant to push us out of limitations, stuck-ness, and the slumber of status quo.

Last week North Korea showed signs it would not just comply with USA demands, on the way to a planned summit in June.  Last week we let you know that the date picked for that summit is a date when the USA militant natal Mars will be triggered.  It did not make sense last week, but after the North Korean complaints it does now.

Also last week just after the Mars/Uranus square there was another mass murder at a school, the 22nd such event this year 2018.

And not long after, there was a royal wedding in Great Britain.  Do you see the connection?

On one side of the same coin, the fantasy wedding that separates privileged special people from the rest of humanity was performed.

On the other side of the coin, the dark shadow side, a young man who was supposedly often bullied, goes on a murderous rampage.

Each side of the coin creates the equally distorted other side of the coin. Brutality motivates people to escape into fantasies of a perfect life.

And the separation caused by superiors pushing down others into inferior lives, creates a dark side of people who feel they are less than.

High School has always been a time when some kids are made to feel popular and better than , while others are often humiliated and made to feel inferior.

So it is time for all of us to realize no one, or no group of people is intrinsically any better or worse in the eyes of the Universe than anyone else.

This desire to be superior to others causes all sorts of separation and conflict in the world. My religion is superior to yours.  My country is superior to yours (Make America Great Again). My race or gender or sexual orientation is superior to yours.  The money and pri...

Iran Protests Spread, 2237 The Still Report

- Nobel Gold: Protect Your Money With Gold - Click Here- https://goo.gl/kx2yzW Or Call - 877-646-5347 Good morning, Im still reporting on: Iran Protests Spread, 2237 Synopsis: Since President Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from Obamas disastrous Iran Nuke deal, Persians in dozens of cities across Iran have become emboldened that they may be able to throw the Mullahs out of power and return to a freedom-loving, stable democracy. Since there is no coverage of this revolt in the MSM including Fox and since we had been too busy fighting our own coup dtat in the United States, we were unaware of the intensity of this indigenous uprising of Persians wanting to breathe free. On Friday, we stumbled onto the May 16 uprising in the southern Iranian city of Kazerun, but couldnt find any later references to it. As it turns out, this may have been that Internet and telephone access to that city were cut off to keep news of the revolt under wraps for as long as possible. Luckily, I searched again this morning and found mountains of cell phone footage which has now made it out to the world. Now, the Persians know that Trump is behind them. In fact, there was one photo of the slogan, Way to go Trump spray painted on a wall in Kaserun in Arabic. Unlike during the 2009 student revolt in Tehran, where Obama did nothing, Persians know that this is the time to take back their nation and many are willing to give their lives for this historic struggle.

In response to President Trumps orders for the DOJ to look into claims of DOJ/FBI wrongdoing in the Russia probe, the DOJ Inspector General has agreed to expand its current investigation: to include any irregularities with the FBI or the DOJs tactics concerning the Trump campaign. Although it remains unclear whether the President has ordered the Justice Dept. to turn over the outstanding documents, the White House also announced that chief of staff John Kelly will immediately set up a meeting with Congressional investigators to review the so-called classified materials that remain outstanding perhaps as a prelude to the President, himself, declassifying them. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has publicly resisted House Intelligence Committee Devin Nuness efforts to see all classified materials related to the foundation of the Russia probe. Rosenstein has claimed that revealing the source of some of the allegations would endanger the persons life.

Cobra: Firing the Grid Update The Event Chronicle

By Cobra

Certain Light Forces fleet, even more evolved that the Pleiadian fleet, has begun activating and preparing certain key members of the surface population for Compression Breakthrough and the Event.

This process may trigger all of suppressed energy patterns and belief systems and its purpose is to test preparedness.

Remain calm.

Dragon sources have communicated that holders of cintamani stones are part of the planetary grid for Compression Breakthrough. This grid now extends into the Agartha network. Cintamani is a sacred stone of the Agartha network. Dragons are asking everybody to treat cintamani stones with respect and are requesting people who are involved in surface cintamani grid, to refrain from having physical contact with their own cintamani stones in moments when they are having a conflict with other surface humans, or when they are in a extremely negative emotional state, to avoid contaminating the grid.

Victory of the Light!

Mind The Federal Debt: Now Growing At $52,000 Per Second and Fixing To Double Soon David Stockman's Contra Corner

Do you feel as if youre drowning in debt? Its worse than you think. The U.S. government reached a new milestone when our countrys debt topped $21 trillion for the first time. The national debt grows by an average of $17,000 every second more than some people earn in an entire year. Thats only an average, and During the past eight months, the national debt grew by $52,000 per second. And the trend toward bigger and higher spending is only getting worse.

Trump jeopardizes global diplomacy The BRICS Post

Much has been said about US President Donald Trump leaving the Iran deal: that this is in blatant disregard of basic rules of the international law on treaties and that this is the behavior of the bully, profoundly disrespectful towards the other partners in the treaty France, Great-Britain, Russia, China and Germany.

And last, but not least, that this comes down to a declaration of war against Iran.

In many ways this is indeed a historical setback.

The consequences of Trumps decision will be felt for decades to come.

When the most powerful country on earth breaks its own treaty commitments without any decent argument, it will jeopardize future attempts at settling conflicts by diplomacy.

To start with North Korea, the message there is loud and clear: Give up your nuclear weapons and we promise to let you live in peace. NOT.

The European Union has openly criticized his decision and even vows to protect EU-businesses against US-sanctions.

President Trumps rudeness and total ignorance of world affairs are indeed baffling. The last president as ignorant as Trump was Ronald Reagan, but that man was happy enough to read the cue cards that his advisors prepared for him.

Not Trump, he does not follow advice, he listens to sycophants.

Planning US dominance?

Yet, as all his predecessors since WWII, he has no doubts about the grand plan for US world dominance, the heart of all US policy since 1945.

Whether presidents personally take seriously their own lofty words of US exceptionalism, bringing freedom and democracy to the world, is not relevant, what counts are the actual policies and their concrete consequences.

This president is no different in that respect, what makes him so exceptional is that he is so openly crass and rude about it. In a perverse way, this president is surprisingly honest about his intentions and promises, in the same way that a neigbourhood bully promises to wreck your store if you disobey or worse.

Disobedience is the real key word here. The real reason why Iran is targeted is its disobedience to the master. Iran is a destabilizing factor in the Middle East, stability being anything or anyone who interferes with our control over the Middle East.

Trumps behavior has already had some unexpected consequences. A few weeks ago Trumps war mongering by tweets has lead South and North Korea to unprecedented peace talks.

Trump can indeed take credit for this inter-Korean dtente, not because he promoted it, quite the contrary, but because both Koreas and most of world opinion outside the US started panicking about mushroom clouds.

Maybe with Iran some similar unforeseen initiative from the EU will emerge in the coming weeks, who knows.

If not, a new war looms on the horizon in the Middle East, with a possible new refugee crisis for Eur...

NATO Peacekeepers? Massive Summer Exercises On Russias Baltic Borders Are Pure Provocation David Stockman's Contra Corner

Anakonda 2018, the largest event ever staged by NATO since the end of the Cold War, involving 100,000 troops, 5,000 vehicles, 150 aircraft and helicopters, and 45 warships will be hosted by Portugal this summer. This particular event will be held outside the Baltic Sea region, but its an important part of the bigger picture because the training activities of the bloc have been incorporated into a unified plan. Its the vast scale that is so impossible to ignore.

All the exercises are being staged to allow the forces to hone their skills for conducting offensive operations against Russia, not for fending off attacks from trenches dug along the lines of defense. All these events are large-scale and the operational tempo is unprecedented, all of which makes the security status of Europe extremely precarious.

Streetcars, Subways and Segregation Marginal REVOLUTION

In the NBER reporter, Allison Shertzer and Randall P. Walsh summarize some of the recent research on urban segregation. As a cause of early 20th century segregation, Shertzer and Walsh put somewhat more weight on white flight and local land use regulations and somewhat less on redlining and discrimination by the Federal government (although all causes were important).

One point which I had not previously considered is that technology interacted in important but unintended ways with preferences for segregation:

We hypothesize that public transportation was critical for the acceleration of white flight because streetcars and subways significantly reduced the cost of living further away from employment centers. Household preferences for racial composition could have interacted with municipal infrastructure investments to increase residential segregation. Such a finding would further underscore the lesson that policies that were race-neutral on their face likely contributed to the development of segregated cities.

*Accounting for Capitalism: The World the Clerk Made* Marginal REVOLUTION

That is the title of a new and excellent book by Michael Zakim.  Here is one bit:

A single block fronting Wall Street in 1850 was thus home to seventeen separate banking firms, as well as fifty-seven law offices, twenty-one brokerage houses, eleven insurance companies, and an assortment of notaries, agents, importers, commission merchants, and, of course, stationers.  A rental market for office suites developed apace fitted up with gas and every other convenience, which also included newly invented acoustic tubes that allowed managing partners to communicate with porters in the basement and clerks in the salesroom without ever having to leave their desks

All this office activity spurred a flurry of technological spillovers that included single standing desks and double-counter desks, sitting desks featuring nine or, alternately, fifteen pigeonholes, and drawers that could or could not be locked.  Office chairs capable of swiveling and tilting became available as well, together with less costly counting house stools that lacked any upholstery.  Paperweights, check cutters, pen wipers (the woolen variety being preferable to silk or cotton, which tended to leave fibers on the nib), pencil sharpeners, rulers, copying brushes, dampening bowls, blotting paper (less important for absorbing excess ink than for protecting the page from soiled hands), wastepaper baskets, sealing wax (including small sticks coated with a combustible material ignited by friction and designed to be discarded after a single use), seal presses, paper fasteners, letter clips (for holding checks while entering them into the daybook), writing pads, billhead and envelope cases, business cards, receiving boxes for papers and letters, various trays (for storing pins, wafers, pencils, and pens), and counting room calendars spanning twelve- or sixteen-month cycles all became standard business tools.  So did the expanding inventory of square inkstands, library inkstands, and banker inkstands designed with narrow necks which prevented evaporation and shallow bodies that kept the upper part of the pen from becoming covered in ink, thus avoiding blackened fingers and smudged documents.

There is then a whole other paragraph about the different kinds of paper that developed and their importance for clerical work.  This is perhaps the most thorough book I know on the importance of small innovations, and it is also a useful book on the history of accounting.

Legalize pot, but dont normalize it Marginal REVOLUTION

That is the topic of my latest Bloomberg column.  Here is one bit:

You might wonder why we should be so worried about public marijuana use. To put it bluntly, I see intelligence as one of the ultimate scarcities when it comes to making the world a better place, and smoking marijuana does not make people smarter. Even if you think there is no long-term damage, right after smoking a person is less able to perform most IQ-intensive tasks (with improvisational jazz as a possible exception). By having city streets filled with pot, pot stores and the odor of pot, we are sending a signal that our society isnt so oriented toward the intellect or bourgeois values. Even if that signal is reflecting a good bit of truth, it would be better not to acknowledge it too openly, just as most advocates of legalized prostitution dont want to allow brothels on Main Street.

Basically I want full legality, but in some locales (California, Colorado) stronger restrictions on its place in the public sphere.  Do read the whole thing.

Our Economy Is Failing Our Society oftwominds-Charles Hugh Smith

If we want to extend the opportunities for positive social roles to everyone, we have to change the way money is created and distributed in our economy.
One of the most unrecognized dynamics of our era is the structural dependence of our society on our economy. One set of pundits, politicos and academics wring their hands over the fragmenting of civil society (the rise of disintegrative, divisive forces and the decay of integrative forces) and decry the rising inequality that is our economy's dominant feature, while another set of pundits and academics celebrate the economy's remarkable adaptability or focus solely on reading financial tea leaves (interest rates, Fed policy tweaks, unemployment rates, etc.)
Those few analysts who escape their respective silos/academic ghettos rarely get past generalities such as the erosion of social mobility, a dynamic that is clearly economic and social. But the precise mechanisms behind the secular erosion of social mobility are lost in platitudes about how A.I. and robots will free us all to be poets or consumers of a vast and endlessly enjoyable leisure.

George Soros 2007: America and Israel must open the door to Hamas Follow The Money

https://www.georgesoros.com/2007/03/19/america_and_israel_must_open_the_door_to_hamas/

The Bush administration is again committing a blunder in the Middle East by supporting the Israeli government in its refusal to recognise a Palestinian unity government that includes Hamas. This precludes any progress towards a peace settlement at a time when such progress could help avert conflagration in the greater Middle East.

The US and Israel seek to deal only with Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian Authority president. They hope new elections would deny Hamas the majority it has in the Palestinian legislative council. This is a hopeless strategy, because Hamas would boycott early elections and, even if their outcome resulted in Hamass exclusion from the government, no peace agreement would hold without Hamas support.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia is pursing a different path. In a February summit in Mecca between Mr Abbas and the Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal, the Saudi government worked out an agreement between Hamas and Fatah, which have been clashing violently, to form a national unity government. Hamas agreed to respect international resolutions and the agreements [with Israel] signed by the Palestinian Liberation Organisation, including the Oslo accords. The Saudis view this accord as the prelude to the offer of a peace settlement with Israel, to be guaranteed by Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries. But no progress is possible as long as the Bush administr...

China will significantly increase purchases of US goods, the White House said as Beijings special envoy at talks in Washington declared a trade war has been averted between the worlds two largest economies.

A joint statement released by the White House following the talks didnt place a dollar figure on the increased purchases by China, or address a comment by President Donald Trumps top economic adviser suggesting Beijing had agreed to slash its annual trade surplus with the US by $200 billion.

Vice Premier Liu He, a special envoy of Chinas President Xi Jinping, told reporters in Washington that talks with US officials, including Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, ended with a pledge not to engage in a trade war, according to a Xinhua news agency report.

FBI Informant Stefan Halper Paid Over $1 Million By Obama Admin; Spied On Trump Aide After Election David Stockman's Contra Corner

Less than a week after Stefan Halper was outed as the FBI informant who infiltrated the Trump campaign, public records reveal that the 73-year-old Oxford University professor and former U.S. government official was paid handsomely by the Obama administration starting in 2012 for various research projects.

A longtime CIA and FBI asset who once reportedly ran a spy-operation on the Jimmy Carter administration, Halper was enlisted by the FBI to spy on several Trump campaign aides during the 2016 U.S. election. Meanwhile, a search of public records reveals that between 2012 and 2018, Halper received a total of $1,058,161 from the Department of Defense.

Monetary Shell GameRed Ponzi Style David Stockman's Contra Corner

To briefly review, China has a currency problem first and foremost; CNY DOWN = BAD. Chinese officials have tried everything to arrest the issue or have at times attempted to alleviate its worst tendencies. It appears as if they had early last year (after CNY continued falling even as reflation gripped almost every other place, especially around the EM world) settled on a stable CNY at all costsThat sums up the last year and almost five months. CNY is higher, but what was actually accomplished aside from pressing the calendar forward one year and almost five months? Yuan has reobtained a downward tendency again, Hong Kong is flirting with disaster, and now the PBOC has locked itself back into a policy that not three years ago didnt come close to producing predictable results. Rather, it was the biggest disaster since 2011.

Mind The Margins: Rising Costs Are Fixing To Hammer Profits David Stockman's Contra Corner

A combination of so-called demand pull and cost-push inflation is sending up feedstock costs and interest expenses to levels that I believe will soon lead to a marked contraction in U.S. corporate profit margins.

In fact, we already saw this phenomenon in first-quarter earnings reports across a host of industries, from consumer-packaged goods to social media. While the cut in U.S. corporate-tax rates has mostly masked these drags and headwinds, the rising cost of everything will likely worsen in the year(s) to come.

Breaking: two Senators, one Republican, one Democrat, who were impersonated during net neutrality proceeding, call on FCC to investigate fraudulent comments that plagued process Fight for the Future

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 21, 2018
Contact: Evan Greer, 978-852-6457, press@fightforthefuture.org

Bipartisan letter shows increasing concern from GOP about the FCCs repeal of open Internet rules

Senators Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Jeff Merkley (D-OR), whose identities were stolen and used to submit fraudulent comments to the FCC during its issue-plagued net neutrality repeal proceeding, just sent a bipartisan letter to the chairman Ajit Pai, calling for a thorough investigation into the millions of fake messages that flooded the agencys docket last year.

Fight for the Future, a digital rights group that was among the first to uncover the massive case of identity fraud, strongly supports this bipartisan request. Previously, the group organized a letter from dozens of people whose names and home addresses were used, without their knowledge or permission, to submit anti-net neutrality comments to the FCC.

People are losing faith in their democracy. The FCCs repeal of net neutrality is set to go into effect in a matter of weeks, despite the fact that the process around it has been riddled with serious issues of fraud and abuse that the agency has thus far refused to address, said Evan Greer, deputy director of Fight for the Future (pronouns: she/her). These Senators are asking exactly the right questions. Providing oversight for the FCC is Congress job. Every member of the House should sign the discharge petition for the Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to block the repeal right now, to ensure that these essential protections for Internet users and small businesses remain in place while a thorough investigation into these fraudulent comments can take place.

The bipartisan letter highlights increasing scrutiny from Republicans lawmakers, who have been under tremendous pressure to denounce the FCCs repeal, which was opposed by the overwhelming majority of GOP and Independent voters. Last week in a historic upset, three GOP Senators voted in support of a Senate CRA resolution to block the FCCs repeal. A handfu...

Having recently returned from a private gathering of Federal Reserve officials, Axel shares his observations with us. In a nutshell, he sees the Fed as now following the market. His prediction is that they will keep tightening right up to the point where the market buckles under the higher rates, and at that point, it will be too late to prevent a major market correction, and likely, a plummet into economic recession.

Want Better Working Conditions in Restaurants? Build a Co-op Grassroots Economic Organizing

At Blue Scorcher in the seaside town of Astoria, Oregon, customers count on a few things. Theres, of course, the golden braids of challah and the crisp loaves of sourdough, but also those flaky pinwheel pastries that go so well with the cafes frothy honey-cardamom lattes. But for the workers who find their way to Blue Scorcher, the business means much more than artisan breads and a paycheck. When people find a good match here its kind of magical, says Joe Garrison, a founding partner in Blue Scorcher.

As a worker-owned cooperative bakery, Blue Scorcher offers employees opportunities to advocate for themselves and benefit directly from the businesss success. Garrison tells the story of a young job applicant who walked through the door four years ago. He sat through the interview with his arms crossed and didnt make much eye contact, but we hired him anyway, Garrison recalls. Today, the same man is an excellent pastry baker, a co-owner in the bakery, and financial officer on the cooperatives board. I really think theres something powerful with this [co-op] model, Garrison says. It engages people in a good way.

Benjamin Fulford: Trumps universal trade war declaration is bringing events to a head The Event Chronicle

By Benjamin Fulford

U.S. President Donald Trumps declaration of trade war with just about everybody is really just a case of Trump negotiating a Chapter 11-style bankruptcy for the United States.  A kinder way of putting it would be to say that the U.S. is revolting against an international system that has looted its people on behalf of globalist oligarchs.  Yet another way of putting it is to say the world is negotiating a replacement for the petro-dollar system.  In any case, we can now expect a lot more shouting and bluster, and possibly even the odd nuke or two, as these negotiations proceed.

In public, this dispute can be seen in the biggest open split between European powers and the United States since the end of World War 2.  We have the leaders of France, Germany, and the EU openly calling for an end to the post-war European/American alliance.  The U.S. side, for its part, has publicly threatened sanctions against European countries.  Under the surface, a U.S. assassination campaign against disobedient EU leaders is also a good guess.

The immediate trigger was Trumps decision to leave the Iranian nuclear accord.  Of course, anybody who is following what is really going on knows that the Trump decision to leave the Iranian nuclear accord has nothing to do with nuclear weapons and is really about Irans announcement that it will sell oil to Europe priced in Euros, not petro-dollars.

Let us start by taking a look at how things will proceed on the superficial level.  Here Trump is saying, If you do not buy more from us, we will stop buying from you!  He is also saying, If you stop using petro-dollars to buy Iranian oil, we will prevent any European country doing business with Iran from doing business with us.  The Europeans are saying, You are a deadbeat who is not paying for what you buy, so who cares is you stop buying!  They are also saying, We will punish any European companies who obey your sanctions against Iran.

The economics of Ethiopian floriculture Marginal REVOLUTION

Most cut flowers have a high value-weight ratio, and are very perishable.  Flowers are consumed throughout the year, and must respond to varying consumer requirements through time.  Thus, the industry depends on air transport and cold-chain logistics throughout the value chain.  Air transport fees account for more than half the total cost of the productand combined with marketing account for up to 75 percent of total costs.  Frequency and timeliness of flights and other logistical arrangements are of utmost importance in meeting orders on time and ensuring that flowers arrive fresh to maximize vase time.  The strategic and role of EAL [Ethiopian Air Lines] becomes clear from this perspective.

That is from Arkebe Oqubays Made in Africa: Industrial Policy in Ethiopia.  In Ethiopia, they sell this book for less than half of its Amazon list price.

Elon Musks Great Model 3 Bait and Switch David Stockman's Contra Corner

The Tesla Model 3 was supposed to be the entry-level electric vehicle for the middle class, that made it up in volume: leading up to the release of the Model 3, it was positioned as the peoples EV that everybody could afford and that, once mass produced, would help Tesla generate cash and profits consistently. The cars relatively modest $35,000 price tag was heralded as one of its key selling points, low enough that Tesla could generate the volume needed to gain operating leverage from selling it to the masses.

But as Elon Musk himself admitted this weekend on Twitter, selling a $35,000 Model 3 right now would cause Tesla to lose money and die.

Deal reached to end NH Electric Cooperative strike Grassroots Economic Organizing

Striking union workers expect to return to work Tuesday after ratifying a tentative agreement reached with the New Hampshire Electric Co-op.

The strike is over at the NH Electric Cooperative, said a Facebook post by International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 1837.

The 3 1/2-year pact, which workers ratified Thursday, still needs approval from the NHEC board of directors, which is expected early next week, the company said.

The union said it anticipates its members will return to their jobs Tuesday after the boards anticipated approval.

The two sides Wednesday reached an agreement that does not include the language that the union had objected to and provides for modest increases in pay, 401(k) and pension benefits, according to the co-op.

Here is the order of events that occurred that I am discussing today.

May 2nd, 2018

I published an article entitled, I Was Invited to the Inner Earth, in which I described an intense dream I had the night of May 1st, where a woman from the Inner Earth gave me the option to leave the surface and join the Inner Earth without having the option to come back to the surface. Later that day I engaged in a deep meditation where I was able to telepathically communicate with her and receive qualifiers about the dream. After this experience, I published the account and received a significant amount of public interest in the article. People were positively charged from my dream, and sent me emails describing their own testimonies of activation and appreciation of their lives on this planet.

Except in the case of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia it was several hours with a leisurely stroll, a meal, and beers in between.

From now on, even as her image becomes increasingly ubiquitous, her voice will be heard less and less.

We can wish her well and at the same time question the job description: the recent prominence of royal women might make for splendid pageantry, but when it comes to the story of gender and power, its the antithesis of real change.

Modi meets Putin in informal meeting in Sochi The BRICS Post

File photo of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Russia has sold more arms to India than any other country [Image: PPIO]


Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Sochi, Russia today for informal talks with Russian President President Vladimir Putin in a visit billed as further strengthening the Special and Privileged Strategic Partnership between India and Russia.

The trip was planned over the course of a few weeks following Putins re-election and at his invitation; it is likely to have high on its unofficial agenda significant Russian arms sales to India.

Our Defense Ministries maintain very close contacts and cooperation. It speaks about a very high strategic level of our partnership, Putin told Modi.

He said that the two strategic allies had worked together in many multilateral platforms such as BRICS along with Brazil, China and South Africa as well as meeting on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly every year.

Modi thanked Russia for helping India join the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

The last time the two leaders met was at the September 2017 BRICS Summit in Xiamen, China.

One of the more important issues to dominate talks is the conclusion of Russian arms exports to India, including the advanced anti-missile S-400 weapons system.

With a range of 400 kilometers, S-400 Triumf is designed to shield from air strikes, strategic, cruise, tactical and operating tactical ballistic missiles and medium-range ballistic missiles.

The S-400 is believed to be able to engage all types of aerial targets including aircraft and VLO (Very Low Observable) craft. The S-400 can seek and destroy targets at a distance of 400 km and at an altitude of up to 32 km.

Military analysts say that acquiring the S-400 Triumf air defense missile systems will drastically boost Indias war potential, capacity and capability.

But India has lately come under pressure from the US to cancel the arms weapons purchases from Russia on the pretext that it could violate US congressional sanctions on Moscow.

The two countries have been trying to finalize the arms deal, particularly of the S-400 system, since 2015.

'A Fairly Ugly Picture': the Economic Risks of Current Fiscal Policy Concord Coalition

'A Fairly Ugly Picture': the Economic Risks of Current Fiscal Policy swinn Mon, 05/21/2018 - 09:25

The American economy is at risk for a variety of reasons: high and rising federal debt, mounting interest and health costs, recent tax and spending decisions, and widespread complacency -- in Washington and around the country -- about the difficult fiscal challenges ahead.  

These critical problems were examined and lamented in a recent panel discussion entitled Dangers of Debt: How Our Fiscal Outlook Threatens the Economy. The program was part of the Peter G. Peterson Foundations 2018 Fiscal Summit in Washington.

Although deficit hawks have long warned about the dangers of fiscal irresponsibility, the panelists said these dangers were worsening.

I think it is more dangerous than usual because we are going into trillion-dollar deficits at . . . the late stages of a recovery cycle, said Steven Rattner, chairman and CEO of Willett Advisors. Under conventional economic thinking, governments should take advantage of a recovery to reduce deficits rather than increase them.

Rattner also noted that in the past, deficits were generally projected by nonpartisan organizations such as the Congressional Budget Office to go down eventually. Now, however, projections show trillion-dollar deficits as far as the eye can see.

He added: So I think all of that paints a fairly ugly picture.

Other panel members were Deanna Mulligan, president and CEO of The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America, and Simon Johnson, a professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management. Greg Ip, chief economics commentator for The Wall Street Journal, served as moderator.

There was considerable agreement among the panelists in many areas, including their deep concern about the countrys current fiscal course and the possible risks of that course both in the near future and the long term.

Rattner said he was troubled both by the size of the federal deficit and how the money was being used. He criticized legislation that over the last three years accounted for most of next years projected...

A Spy In The US Election-40 Year Deep State Neocon David Stockman's Contra Corner

The identification of a spy implanted in Donald Trumps presidential campaign by a murky cabal of spooks, both foreign and domestic, has given us a whole new perspective on the Russia-gate hoax.

We also know due to a New York Times story that tries mightily to justify it.

A Giant Stock Market Bubble Is Not Economic Recovery40% Of Americans Can Afford Middle Class Lifestyle David Stockman's Contra Corner

One of the primary objectives of the Federal Reserves monetary policy of this past decade was to generate the wealth effect: by artificially driving valuations of stocks and bonds to nosebleed valuations, American households would feel more prosperous, therefore, be more inclined to borrow and spend, even if some households did not own financial instruments.

In other words, a Central-Bank-free-money-anything-goes-induced economic recovery was supposed to trigger fast-paced economic growth, as households would reignite the service-based economy.

How the FBI and CIA Restarted the Cold War to Protect Themselves David Stockman's Contra Corner

On December 29, 2016, the Obama Administration with three weeks remaining in its term issued harsh sanctions against Russia over supposed election interference.  Two compounds in the United States were closed and 35 Russian diplomats were ordered to leave the country. Russia responded by calling the actions Cold War dj vu.

In the two years that have elapsed since, it has been learned that the intelligence that formed the basis for the sanctions was beyond dubious. A single unverified dossier compiled by an ex-British spy with no discernable connections to Russia was shopped to FISA judges and the media as something real.

Its Not StagflationIts Failed Central Bank Monetary Inflation David Stockman's Contra Corner

The explanation why monetary stimulus has not worked as intended is not difficult to understand, but for neo-Keynesians it is unpalatable. This article takes its cue from the misapplication of the stagflation term to explain why Keynesian stimulation of the economy is bound to fail, and symptoms commonly but incorrectly referred to today as stagflationary are simply a reflection of the costs of monetary policy imposed on ordinary people.

Dematerialization: Humanitys Biggest Surprise Marginal REVOLUTION

Andrew McAfee argues that the Earth Day environmentalists correctly diagnosed the problem, a worsening environment, but were wrong about the solution, degrowth. In fact, the drive to reduce costs by making better use of resources has led to a dramatic decrease in resource use even as production has increased, a dematerialization. Poverty not prosperity is the enemy of the environment.

I love this talk for many reasons not the least of which is that Andrew has put all his data online.

Introducing.Hamilton The Industrial Strategy Resolution Foundation

Todays science speech by the Prime Minister shows how much she has in common with the great Alexander Hamilton though she has not got her own musical yet.

Hamiltons great rival Jefferson had a picture of America as sturdy yeoman farmers enjoying their liberties under a minimalist Government. Hamilton instead saw the Federal Government turning America into a great power by promoting economic growth and backing strategic missions such as westward expansion. Hidden behind the Jeffersonian rhetoric America is actually a Hamiltonian state. They set big ambitious goals from Nixons War on Cancer to Trumps aim of getting to Mars. Americas security strategy is that they should have a leading position in every significant global technology and the US military is behind many of todays key commercial technologies. One reason why the EU developed the Galileo network of satellites was that GPS is ultimately under US military control and European states were not absolutely confident they could rely on it in a crisis.

Not every technology which American federal agencies invest in works, and they do not meet every challenge they set themselves, but they know it is worth the risk. Hamilton learnt from observing the rise of the British Empire that it is a crucial role of Government to take risks too great for individuals or companies to bear. That is a crucial reason why governments fund science and R&D.

We used to do all this in the UK. But after the disasters of the 1970s we lost our nerve. We cut back the role of Government driving innovation and restricted it to promoting curiosity driven scientific research, expecting business to do the rest. The problem with this approach has been that public funding stopped long before the projects were commercially viable. We beat up on British firms for being risk adverse when in reality we were expecting companies to take far greater risks with new technologies than in America.

The Governments Industrial Strategy shows all that is changing. Business Secretary Greg Clarke has identified four grand challenges mobility, AI, clean energy, and healthy ageing that Britains industrial strategy should be based around. Today the PM has gone further and identified specific missions, such as harnessing AI for medical diagnosis so that we spot cancer earlier, and give people more years of high quality independent life expectancy.

To tackle these grand challenges we will have to do better than we have for a generation in linking science, technology and entrepreneurship. This latest approach reflects the influence of Mariana Mazzucato with whom I co-chair our Commission on Mission-oriented Innovation and Industrial Strategy. And all this week at Resolution Foundation we will be hosting public discussions with Ministers and innovators aimed at fleshing out what we need to do to tackle the challenges.

These new initiatives are welcome but they must not come at the expense...

Kenneth Arrow, weather officer Marginal REVOLUTION

Following the U.S. declaration of war on December 8, 1941, Arrow, who was certain to be drafted, enlisted in the hope of securing an officers commission in the U.S. Army Corps where he believed he would have a chance to use his mathematical and statistical training.  He was quickly approved to attend an aviation training program at New York University in October 1942, taking active duty breaks from classes for rifle drill, which he and his colleagues thought rather silly.   Nonetheless, he came out of that program in September 1943 commissioned as a weather officer with the rank of second lieutenant and was assigned to a weather research facility in Asheville, North Carolina; in July 1945 he was transferred to the weather division headquarters of the Army Air Force.  It was during that time in Asheville that he wrote a memorandum that later, in 1949, became his first professional paper (On the Use of Winds in Flight Planning in the Journal of Meteorology).  That paper presented an algorithm for taking advantage of winds aloft to save fuel on North Atlantic air crossings, an idea that was not acted upon by the military at that time but became the canonical practice for North Atlantic flight paths in the postwar period.

That is from the new, excellent, and consistently interesting Finding Equilibrium: Arrow, Debreu, McKenzie and the Problem of Scientific Credit, by Till Dppe and E. Roy Weintraub.  Unlike many history of economic thought books, this one tells you what actually happened, such as how an Econometrica editor (Robert Strotz) decided to publish the McKenzie paper before the Arrow-Debreu paper, when he had both in hand.

*Unfabling the East* Marginal REVOLUTION

That is the new and noteworthy book by Jrgen Osterhammel, and the subtitle is The Enlightenments Encounter with Asia.  Here is one good bit of many:

For Alexander Hamilton, there was nothing more acoustically disturbing on his extensive travels in Asia than the bells that tolled through the night in Portuguese Goa.  Asian cities are quieter than European ones because they have hardly any paved roads and there are few, if any, carriages with iron fittings.  Festive banquets are marked by an absence of polite conversation because the hosts are too busy tucking into their food to bother with such niceties.  Court ceremonies generally unfold in an atmosphere that strikes Europeans as eerily hushed.  Few words are exchanged during Siamese and Tibetan audiences.  All is calm around the Chinese emperor too, as courtiers and mandarins glide to and fro in felt-lined slippers.

Definitely recommended.  Here is the books home page.

Gina Haspel confirmed as CIAs first female director Follow The Money

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-44159593

The US Senate has approved the CIAs first female director, despite her role in the spy agencys post-9/11 interrogation programme.

Gina Haspels confirmation in a 54-45 vote follows a partisan fight among senators about the CIAs Bush-era use of techniques such as waterboarding.

Ms Haspel, a CIA veteran, once oversaw a so-called black site in Thailand after the 11 September 2001 attacks.

The former CIA chief, Mike Pompeo, left to become US Secretary of State.

Republican Senator John McCain who was tortured during his more than five years in a Vietnamese prison had earlier announced his opposition to US President Donald Trumps nominee.

On Thursday, six Democrats crossed party lines to vote in her favour.

One of them, Virginia Senator Mark Warner, said Ms Haspel had told him the agency should never have resorted to so-called enhanced interrogation techniques.

Why Our Aspirations Are Broken (And How to Fix Them) Stories by umair haque on Medium

Why We Need to Elevate the Quality of Our Dreams

You can tell a lot about a society, like you can about a person, by its dreams. Not just how big and intense and detailed they are. But by what they really mean, say, express, denote.

What do we dream about today?

When I went off to grad school, we pored over case study after case study, debating, discussing, learning. And it seemed to me that one of the things that my professors were trying to teach us wasnt just the science of businesses, economies, institutions, organizations, but the art of them, too. The human qualitiessweat, tears, soulthat it takes to really imagine, build, and create them. If I think back on what I learned then, something like this occurs to me.

Once upon a time the dream of building a business meant something like this. Caring for your employeesand their families, too. Creating decent jobs, that let people live lives of prosperity and peace. How? By undertaking an an authentic, noble and worthwhile challenge for your societyproviding transportation, care, connection, nourishment, knowledge, truth, beauty, grace. One that filled a real and genuine and deep human neednot just stoked an artificial one. The reward? Earning a good and decent profitnot a kings ransom, because a free person must never aspire to be a king, but perhaps a small fortuneand sharing it with those who were brave enough to take real risks with you. Do you see the dream a little? Building something real and authentic and genuine, worthy and lasting and fulfilling. A cross between a family, a tribe, and a mission.

Do I romanticize too much? Am I seeing through the rose colored glasses of nostalgia? Perhaps, perhaps. Still. Think of Steve. Of Henry Ford. Of Thomas Edison. Now think of Zuck, Thiel, and Bezos. Isnt there a striking difference? So while its true that there have always been examples of terrible and evil businessesScrooge and Mr Burns werent entirely fictionalstill, I cant help but feel that the ideal, the dream, wasnt always as hollow and shallow as it is now.

Think of the kind of tycoon we teach young people to be, idolize, celebrate, and laud. Whats that dream about? It isnt about taking care of your employees, like a familyits about employing as few people as possible. A handful of boy geniuses, usuallyand everyone else gets a dead-end job with no benefits, if they get jobs at all, versus being Uber drivers. For what purpose? To profit maximally. At any price, no matter to people, societies, or democracywhether its lost trust, broken communities, upended towns, degraded knowledge. How? By any means necessary. Loopholes. Cooking the books. Squeezing widows and orphans. Cornering markets. Financial tricks and games. To what end? To pump up artificial needs, mostly, by stoking peoples envy, resentment,...

Commodities are fungible TheMoneyIllusion

Heres the Financial Times, discussing recent trade negotiations with China:

They said that after two days of constructive talks China had agreed to significantly increase its purchases of US goods and services and on the need for meaningful increases in US agricultural and energy exports to China.

Beijing had agreed, they said, to amend relevant laws and regulations, including its patent law, to address US intellectual property complaints that have fuelled Mr Trumps recent threats to impose tariffs on up to $150bn in imports from China. They also pledged to continue engagement to resolve their differences.

In recent years weve heard a lot of complaints about a China Shock, the idea that a surge in Chinese exports to the US has cost jobs in manufacturing.  And now the US is pushing China to import more US food and energy, which would create an even bigger China shock, if it were successful. Thats because any trade policy that leads more food and energy exports also tends to lead to more imports of manufactured goods.

On the other hand, the policy is not likely to be successful.  If the Chinese buy more corn and oil for the US, they will buy less corn and oil from Brazil.  Brazil will send those goods to the countries that previously were buying the US corn and oil that are being redirected to China.  The bilateral deficit with China will shrink, but the overall US trade deficit with the rest of the world will not change.  Commodities are fungible.  All that will happen is that trade patterns will be rearranged, imposing more transportation costs.  A deadweight loss for the global economy.  And of course Trumps fiscal policy will make the trade deficit worse.

The Chinese surely understand this, but I suspect the Trump administration does not.  Or perhaps people like Larry Kudlow do understand, but are keeping quiet because they wish to avoid something much worse.

Saturdays vague statement did not mention telecommunications company ZTE and its lack of firm targets highlighted a continuing gap between both sides priorities.

The apparent failure came as political reaction forced the Trump administration to back away from a presidential commitment to resolve a dispute over ZTE, which was forced to suspend business operations after being banned from buying US components. . . . Mr Trumps tweet provoked a backlash from both Republicans and Democrats in Congress who pointed to US intelligence agencies longstanding security concerns about ZTE. Politicians across the US political spectrum warned the president on Friday not to cave in to China.

Trumps negotiating has been so ineffective that both Dems and Republicans are complaining hes too weak...

The poor, the sick, the sad, and the lonely: Blaming the victims TheMoneyIllusion

Most people will want to skip this post, but its something I need to get off my chest. One unfortunately aspect of the internet is that it lifts off the lid, and exposes all the dark sides of human nature. One of those dark aspects is the urge to blame the victim.

1.  The sick

If you follow sports, you will eventually come across a case like Derrick Rose, or Kawhi Leonard. These are players that suffered severe injuries, and had trouble getting healthy again. At some point medical science is no longer able to identify the problem. They look healed but they still felt pain, which got worse when they played. When that happens, sports reporters start whispering that its a mental thing, that these players are weak. This despite the fact that when healthy, these men were among the toughest in the league, willing to mix it up with much bigger players under the rim. We get frustrated that they arent healed yetand that the problem cannot be identifiedso its their fault. (This year its Markelle Fultz who is being picked on.)

Medical science may be impressive, but there is still a great deal that it doesnt understand. If you go to the doctor and complain about chronic intestinal pain, theres a good chance that he or she wont be able to pinpoint the problem. Indeed there are lots of things that cannot be identified in X-rays or blood tests, including severe back pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, migraine headaches, and dozens of other illnesses. We get frustrated with people who have these hard to pinpoint problems, and label them hypochondriacs. Or we say they have a low threshold for painas if anyone knows the pain felt by another person. Yes, its true that the pain is all in their head, but thats equally true of someone suffering pain from a phantom limb, and someone who has their hand on a hot stove. Where else would the pain be?

2.  The sad

Its even worse with mental illnesses. People suffering from depression are told to just snap out of it, or think positive thoughts. They are viewed as losers.

3.  The lonely

There has been recent discussion of incels, people who are celibate but who would prefer to be in a romantic relationship. The non-lonely often tell them to just lower their standards, as if they had never thought of that. Or join a church. Please, just stop. Even worse, one prominent pundit implied that tech firms might want to get rid of these awful people. After all, one incel in Canada murdered some people.

4.  The poor

Like you and I, indeed like almost everyone, poor people often make bad choices. But the last thing they want to hear is som...

Conundrum Alert-What Gives With Gold? David Stockman's Contra Corner

Earlier this week, the USD gold price was pushed rather unceremoniously off its perch above the $1300 level, where it had been comfortably ensconced all year after its usual seasonal rally around the turn of the year. For a while it seemed as though the $1,300 level may actually hold, but persistent US dollar strength nixed that idea. Previously many observers (too many?) expected gold to finally break out from its lengthy consolidation pattern, but evidently the intense patience training session for gold bugs is set to continue for a while longer.

The capitalization of Coinbase Marginal REVOLUTION

Consumers who sign up with Coinbase must feel sure that their online wallets will not be hacked, its executives say. To minimize the risk of a catastrophic data breach, Coinbase stores roughly 99 percent of its customers funds in formats that are not connected to the Internet. The remaining 1percent the liquid funds that Coinbase uses to carry out trades comes from the companys reserves, so that customer funds are never directly connected to the marketplace. That 1 percent is privately insured by Lloyds of London, Hirji said, offering another layer of protection.

Top of the Charts: free transport, the productivity puzzle, and paying attention to Angry Birds Resolution Foundation

Are those wedding bells we can hear, or just the normal Friday afternoon fire alarm tests? The good (or bad, if like one RF colleague you live in Windsor) news is that you will be hearing wedding bells tomorrow. Try to contain your excitement. If, controversially, your plans dont include watching the full five hours of TV coverage, the reads below might be of interest.

Poverty and minds. Counter to the widespread view that bad decisions lead people into poverty, a blog from US academics explains how the strains of poverty lead to bad decisions of a sort. They run experiments with people playing mobile games like Angry Birds (David Cameron was not involved). Interestingly they find not that having less leads people to make worse decisions, but that it makes problems feel bigger and take up more of your attention. The conclusion: poverty saps peoples attention rather than their decision-making ability and bad decisions therefore arise from difficulties in absorbing information.

Puzzling productivity. A NIESR and ONS paper dives into the weeds of the ten-year UK productivity slowdown. The good news is its an interesting paper the bad news is our productivity slowdown is complicated Its biggest in the industries that were growing fastest before the crisis (which isnt that surprising given youd be hard pressed to argue that growth was sustainable/real in all cases). As for why the slowdown is continuing so long after the crisis, the paper argues that in service sectors at least were creating jobs but not putting any cash into new capital. Time for some badly needed investment.

galit? Sounds utopian, perhaps, but in Paris its being taken very seriously by city hall. Mayor Anne Hidalgo announced last year that shes considering the 6 billion plan that would make Paris (with 11 million people in the Ile de France metropolitan area) the biggest free public transport zone in the world. Before you get all defensive/jealous just remember, the French might get free transport, but theyll never have a royal wedding. So there.
