Maxim Borodin died after a mysterious fall from his apartment window. There was no suicide note and the door to his apartment was found locked from the inside. Borodin had reported on political scandals linked to President Vladimir Putins pals and the death of Russian mercenaries in Syria after they attacked US forces in the region. A friend of Borodin told the BBC that Borodin had called him before sunrise on April 11 to say that there was someone with a weapon on his balcony and people in camouflage and masks on the staircase landing. Borodin then called later on and told his friend that he had been wrong and the men were part of a security exercise. In October of last year, according to CBS News, another prominent journalist working for Russias only independent news radio station, Ekho Moskvy, was stabbed in the throat by an unknown attacker who burst into her studio.

4. China fact of the day, less sex than you might think.
Although the concept of randomized assignment to control for extraneous factors reaches back hundreds of years, the first empirical use appears to have been in an 1835 trial of homeopathic medicine. Throughout the 19th century, there was primarily a growing awareness of the need for careful comparison groups, albeit often without the realization that randomization could be a particularly clean method to achieve that goal. In the second and more crucial phase of this history, four separate but related disciplines introduced randomized control trials within a few years of one another in the 1920s: agricultural science, clinical medicine, educational psychology, and social policy (specifically political science). Randomized control trials brought more rigor to fields that were in the process of expanding their purviews and focusing more on causal relationships. In the third phase, the 1950s through the 1970s saw a surge of interest in more applied randomized experiments in economics and elsewhere, in the lab and especially in the field.
That is from a Julian C. Jamison paper done at the World Bank, via various people in my Twitter feed.

There are many arguments for the use of models in economics, including notions of rigor and transparency, or that models can help you to see relationships you otherwise might not have expected. I dont wish to gainsay those, but I thought of another argument yesterday. Models are a way of indexing your thoughts. A model can tell you which are the core features of your argument and force you to give them names. You then can use those names to find what others have written about your topic and your mechanisms. In essence, you are expanding the division of labor in science more effectively by using models.
This mechanism of course requires that models are a more efficient means of indexing thoughts than pure words or propositions alone. In this view, it is often topic names or book indexes or card catalogs that models are competing with, not verbal economics per se.
The existence of Google therefore may have lowered the relative return to models. First, Google searches by words best of all. Second and relatedly, if you have written only words Google will help you find the related work you need, scholar.google.com kicks in too. In essence, there is a new and very powerful way of finding related ideas, and you need not rely on the communities that get built around particular models (though those communities largely will continue).
It is notable that open access, on-line economics writing doesnt use models very much and is mostly content to rely on words and propositions. There are several reasons for this, but this productivity shock to differing methods of indexing may be one factor.
Still, it is not always easy to search by words. Many phrases consider say free will do not through search engines discriminate very well on the basis of IQ or rigor.

The global economy is enjoying its strongest performance since the start of the decade but the International Monetary Fund has warned these favourable conditions wont last forever.
In its latest World Economic Outlook which included a modest upgrade to its Australian growth forecast the IMF says governments should seize the opportunity to bolster growth and take action to counter the next downturn.
Now is the moment to get ready for leaner times, IMF economic counsellor Maurice Obstfeld says in the report released in Washington on Tuesday.
Readiness requires not only cautious and forward-looking management of monetary and fiscal policies, but also careful attention to financial stability.
The IMF stuck to its most recent world growth forecast of 3.9 per cent for both this year and next, the strongest pace since the growth spike which initially followed the 2008-2009 global financial crisis.
It says the global upswing that began in mid-2016 has become broader and stronger led by faster growth in the Euro area, Japan, China and the US.
It upgraded its Australian growth forecast to three per cent for 2018 from its previous 2.9 per cent prediction made in February, while keeping 2019 at 3.1 per cent.

Those who have already been here will want to skip over this post for something more informativefor example Noah Smith. But I thought Id make a few comments about my first trip to Japan, which is 60% over. Consider these to be non-authoritative impressions.
1. Just say Noh: After arriving at 4am very jet-lagged, I stayed up all day and attended a performance of Noh theatre at the Yasukuni Shrine. (Yes, that Yasukuni Shrine.) Despite the jet lag and the tiny uncomfortable chairs, I sort of enjoyed the event. Perhaps it helped that I had previously read William Vollmanns Kissing the Mask, although it had been awhile and I still didnt really understand what I was watching. In any case, I recommend a performance of Noh, at least for those with patience. (Id like to thank my friend and his wife for bringing me to this show, and helping my wife and I adjust to Japan.)
2. The wouldnt it be neat if country: Japan seems like a land of contrasts (hows that for a cliche!) From the understated subtlety of Noh we transitioned to the sensory bombardment of Robot Restaurant, which makes Las Vegas seem refined and tasteful by comparison. If you like young Japanese ladies in skimpy comic book outfits using whips to mercilessly attack men dressed up as awful monsters, all to the sound of deafening rock music (and who doesnt?) then be sure not to miss this show. I saw roughly zero Japanese there, which must mean something. Later that day we saw a group of western tourists driving go-carts through Shibuya, all dressed up in bizarre costumes. I like the fact that the Japanese seem rather uninhibited in terms of coming up with offbeat ways of having fun. In many cases, its just a matter of tweaking some familiar product to make it more convenient. Which brings me to my next observation:
3. Japan is in the details:
One of the pleasures of traveling in Japan is that you notice all sorts of interesting little details. The Japanese are good at perfecting products or processes that are widely used elsewhere. In the basement of a Tokyo department store I saw the most astounding collection of baked goods that Ive ever come across. This place is paradise for people with a sweet tooth. There are lots of innovations in travel, such as taxi doors that open automatically, and a train system that runs with such perfect precision that youll almost burst out laughing. When I watched thousands of c...

But, as Tucker Carlson noted in an important segment at Fox News, even if it can be proven that the Syrian regime is responsible for the attack, its unclear how a new attack on Syria will make the US safer.
The administration and its pro-war backers do not appear to even be making this case, as it is quite apparent that the Syrian regime is no danger to the United States, whatsoever. The regimes tiny air force and virtually-non-existent navy pose no threat to a country with a navy ten times larger than any other navy, and which spends more on military projects than the next eight most militarized regimes combined. As President Dwight Eisenhower understood as he cut military spending in the face of a resurgent Soviet Union the USs huge nuclear arsenal renders threats from regimes like Assads utterly moot.

Despite the dramatic collapse of the crypto market this year, well-known investors have opted to buy into digital currencies, triggering a brief surge in the prices of top tokens.
Reports have emerged that George Soros is preparing to invest in digital assets, despite his earlier criticism of them. Adam Fisher, who controls macro investing at Soros Fund Management, has reportedly secured internal approval to trade the currencies.
The Rockefellers have also reportedly joined the crypto party. Venrock, the official venture-capital arm of the family, reportedly signed a partnership with Coinfund, a cryptocurrency investment fund, to back virtual tokens and blockchain business innovations.
Coinfund has recently launched token-based financial services platform Coinlist. The company had previously initiated a number of projects, including chat messenger app Kik, which raised almost $100 million in the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) last year.
We wanted to partner with this team that has been making investments and actually helping to architect a number of different crypto economies and crypto token-based projects,said David Pakman, partner at Venrock, as quoted by Fortune.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 17, 2018
Contact: Evan Greer, 978-852-6457, email@example.com
Net neutrality supporters secured a victory today in California as the most comprehensive state net neutrality bill in the country cleared a major hurdle toward passage. The Senate Energy, Utilities, and Communications Committee moved to advance SB 822 with minor changes, rejecting a slew of amendments backed by telecom lobbyists that would have gutted the intent of the bill and created loopholes for ISP scams and abuses.
The vote is not yet final, as two members were absent, but one was an original co-author of the bill, guaranteeing it has the support it needs to pass the committee. SB 822, which has received massive support from grassroots organizations, small businesses, and more than 50,000 California residents, will now move to a hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee this Tuesday.
Net neutrality is more popular than ever before. People are outraged that the FCC took it away, and theyre fighting to get it back, and now its clear that California will be leading the way with the most comprehensive net neutrality bill in the country said Evan Greer, deputy director of Fight for the Future, ISPs did everything in their power to try to stop this bill, but even their army of lobbyists was no match for California residents who used the Internet to mobilize. Monopolistic ISPs will undoubtedly continue their crusade to weaken or kill the bill, but Internet users will fight them every step of the way. US Congress should also take note, and pass the CRA resolution to restore strong net neutrality protections for all.

The contra-narrative about Assads alleged gas attack is gaining traction as the evidence comes in. It increasingly seems probable that some folks suffocated or were overcome with smoke inhalation and hypoxia (oxygen deprivation) when buildings, tunnels and underground bunkers collapsed into clouds of dust during the final battle for Douma last Saturday.
Then the desperate remnant of the jihadist Army of Islam (Jaysh al-Islam) holed up there piled the bodies in a basement, spread shaving cream on their lips and proceeded to videotape furiously. Thereafter, they charged into a nearby hospital (which was treating hypoxia victims) with their video cameras in hand, yelling chemical attack while water-hosing one and all, thereby setting off the pandemonium seen on social media around the world.
We havent gotten to Douma yet to check out this contra-narrative, but an intrepid young reporter named Pearson Sharp did. Along with his camera crew, he visited the site of the attack, the hospital and the nearby rebel weapons dump-and interviewed dozens of people in the immediate vicinity.
According to Sharp, none of them witnessed the alleged gas attack or believed it happened, and several personnel at the Douma hospital corroborated the phony water-dousing melee. Indeed, the head surgeon insisted to him that no one had died at the hospital from chemical agents.
And he also saw and videoed room after room stacked with rockets, mortars and other military gear and filmed the debris and dilapidated remnants of buildings in the town.
No doubt about it. Douma is the victim of a vicious civil war fought for keeps by both sides. Its the kind of place where folks get terrorized, bombed, shot, suffocated, shrapneled and blown to smithereens.
This kind of urban warfare is its own horror show, chemical agents or no. And most surely, there is no way to accurately determine who did what from a 6,000 mile away vantage point in Washington.
Thats especially the case with Douma because it appears that much of its bedraggled population had been literally driven underground into tunnels, basements and behind makeshift earthworks to shelter from the fighting and bombing.
There, they were the captives of the brutal, armed jihadists of Jaysh al-Islam, and it was in this subterranean setting that the room full of bodies and the frenzied hospital scenes transmitted over social media actually transpired. That is, the whole event was completely invisible to Washingtons vast, high-powered eyes in the sky.
Then again, you are apparently a tin-foil hat wearing conspiracy theorist if you doubt the official narrativeconjured in offices along the Potomac-in the slightest. Thats even if you actually walk the debris-ridden tunnels of Douma, as did young Mr. Pearson Sharp.

Over the last few years, maybe even couple of decades, as Ive done the same thing I always dosit at the cafe and watch the world go bysomethings changed. People, it appears to me, have built walls. Walls around themselves. Where once they used to be expressive, smiling, laughing, playing, joking, today their faces are grim, hard, set with a kind of determination not to show the pain. Is that, Ive wondered, the point of the walls? To not let any of that hurt out?
I want to talk about a subject were not allowed to talk about. I want to talk about it openly, as honestly as I can, and with as much truth as we can bear. That subject is you, me, pain, in all its forms. I think that we are living through what Ill call a Traumapocalypsemore or less everyones being traumatized, just by existing right now. Think of it as a tsunami of trauma, racing across society. Life has become trauma, and trauma has become life. Do you think I overstate it?
Now. This is an essay that will be full of overgeneralizations and broad conclusions, an unfortunate necessity when we discuss society. And you will feel upset, or at least uneasy, at times. I will use America as an example, though I think the idea of societies traumatizing themselves extends further. But all that is for you to judge.
Let me begin with an observation. America wasnt always like this. Kids werent massacring each other at school. People didnt have to crowdfund basic medicine like insulin. Once upon a time, people had decent jobs, saved up, bought homes, had families, and retired. But all that is long ago. Somehow, none of these things exist anymorethe basics of a decent life have been ripped away from people. Neighbour has been turned into adversary, and society into a gladiatorial arena, where everyone must fight everyone else for a shrinking chance at a smaller portion of a less decent life.
All-encompassing cruelty has left people traumatized, abused, and psychologically shattered. Perhaps you think Im overstating it. How would you interpret the following facts? Anti-depressant use is endemic. Kids are turning to opioids en masse, when theyre not expressing their anger with guns. Loneliness is rife, and suicide rates are rising. People have turned en masse to magical forms of thinking, like political extremism, and fundamentalist religion. I could go on.
What do all those things have in common? They are coping mechanisms. Pause for a second and really see it. People are trying...

Private ownership of companies drives our economic system but it has also created corporations that put profit above everything else, a divided society and a planet on the brink of destruction. Armin Steuernagel proposes a new way to think about ownership: Steward-ownership replaces executives with leaders who are truly responsible and accountable. It creates an economy where companies are owned by the most able, not by the highest bidder and where a purpose is at the heart of every companys DNA.

Attendance dropped to 159,000 last year from a high of 403,000 in 2009, when there was a special exhibition. Last years number is 43 percent below the 10-year average.
One of the under-reported stories about D.C. is how much the citys art museums have faded as intellectual and cultural centers for the city. This seems to be extreme for the African museum, perhaps because of urban gentrification, and perhaps because the African museum has an especially hard time mounting blockbuster exhibits famous to the public eye.

CBOs Economic Outlook: Four Takeaways swinn Tue, 04/17/2018 - 10:09
As Congress and President Trump agreed in the last few months to dramatically increase federal borrowing, there have been a lot of breezy assurances that rapid and sustained economic growth will take care of everything.
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) offers a more thoughtful -- and more troubling -- economic analysis as part of its recently released Budget and Economic Outlook: 2018 to 2028. Four key takeaways from that analysis:
1. Washington should not count on economic growth as a panacea for the nations fiscal and demographic challenges. That is true even after taking into account the fiscal stimulus of deficit-financed tax cuts and deficit-financed spending increases.
Instead of forecasting large, steady increases in growth, the CBOs projections show the economy following a marked cyclical path over the next decade.
The growth of real (inflation-adjusted) GDP is projected to be relatively strong this year and next and then to moderate, the budget office says. Over the coming decade, it projects that actual as well as potential output (the maximum sustainable output of the economy) will expand at an average annual rate of only 1.9 percent -- largely unchanged over the long-term and hardly the answer to all our problems.
Meanwhile, CBO projects, the federal government will be adding nearly $12.42 trillion to the federal debt over the next decade.
Critics of the CBO say it is too pessimistic, but the budget office presents some persuasive arguments for its projections.
Its report points out, for example, that the growth of the labor force will be constrained by ongoing retirements in the baby boom generation. Labor force growth is a key factor in the projected growth of potential GDP. Between 1950 and 2017 it grew at an average of 1.4 percent annually, but in 2018-2028, CBO projects it will grow at just 0.5 percent annually.
Moreover, from 2020 to 2026, CBO says, a number of factors dampen economic growth: higher interest rates and prices, slower growth in federal outlays, and the expiration of reductions in personal income tax rates.
Another reason to question complaints that CB...
The Crisis Is Only In Its Beginning Stages
Paul Craig Roberts
Many, including Russias President Putin, have asked why the US launched an illegal attack on Syria prior to the chemical weapons inspectors examining the site of the alleged chemical attack.
This popular question completely misses the point. The US attack on Syria is a clear and indisputable war crime against a sovereign country regardless of whether Syria used a chemical weapon in driving the Washington supported terrorists from Douma. No one acted to stop Washingtons war crime. Some of Washingtons vassals, such as Germany and Italy, refused to participate in Washingtons war crime, but no one attempted to block it. The impotent UN Security Council, to which Russia is wasting its time appealing, the EU, NATO, Russia and China themselves did nothing to stop Washingtons Nazi era war crime.
Russia said that if Washingtons attack harmed its citizens, there would be military consequences, but Russia did not protect its ally Syria from the attack.
Perhaps it doesnt matter as Washingtons attack was carefully conducted so as to have no effect except to serve as a face-saver for Trump. Apparently no one was killed and no damage was done to anything real except to a facility in which anti-venom for snake bites was being produced.
On the other hand, it does matter, because of the perception that the American presstitutes have created that it was a great victory for America over the evil Syrian government and the evil Russian government that supports them. This perception, which the presstitutes have created with their fake news, justifies the war crime and will lead to more attacks on Syria.
It is unlikely that the UN Security Council will condemn Washington, which pays 25% of the UNs budget. Moreover, the Security Council is loaded up with Washingtons vassals, and they will not vote to censure their liegelord. Putin is wasting his time taking the matter to the Security Council, unless his purpose is to prove that every Western institution is completely corrupt. As most informed people already know this, I dont understand the point of proving the known. Putin should read Eric Zuesses article before he puts too much faith in the UN. https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/04/17/how-us-has-virtually-destroyed-un.html
As I have written on a number of occasions, I admire Putins Christian character of sidestepping the beatings he continuously takes from Washington in order to save the world from the massive deaths of a world war. The problem is that by turning the other cheek, Putin encourages more aggression from Washington. Putin is dealing with neoconservative psychopaths. He is not dealing with common sense.

Trillions and Trillions in Deficits swinn Tue, 04/17/2018 - 09:36
Guests on Facing the Future last week lamented new projections of trillion-dollar federal deficits beginning in Fiscal 2020 and discussed how recent tax and spending decisions had contributed to the problem.
We are at full employment, or very close to full employment, Lim said. We are certainly not an economy in recession. And there is no evidence that we need cuts in marginal tax rates to spur the supply side of the economy either.
She added: I think its very telling that politicians keep proposing things that have political appeal because they involve deficit-financing, and they dont have to talk about offsetting tax increases or spending cuts.
The new projections were released last week by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) in its Budget and Economic Outlook: 2018 to 2028.
I never thought I would see trillion-dollar deficits every year for as far as the eye can see, said Robert L. Bixby, executive director of The Concord Coalition.
He noted on the program that the budget office is not that optimistic about the effects of the tax cuts. Bixby added: The trade-off here, according to CBOs numbers, is you get a sudden shot of adrenaline from the tax cut, and then the increased debt and drag on the economy goes back into place.
Bixby said that although recent legislation has made matters worse, those laws were not the sole driver of the nations debt and deficit problems.
I dont look at it as Do we have a spending problem or do we have a revenue problem? Bixby said. We have a budget problem. Were not paying for the size government that we have voted for.
He said automatic spending programs like Social Security and Medicare were a critical concern: They grow because there are more beneficiaries and they grow because it costs more to provide health care for those beneficiaries.
Lim said she was concerned about the trajectory of the national debt, whi...
Translation: Whatever Trump says, America is not coming out of Syria. We are going deeper in. Trumps commitment to extricate us from these bankrupting and blood-soaked Middle East wars and to seek a new rapprochement with Russia is inoperative.

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

This morning UK labour market passed a few living standards milestones on pay and jobs with two good pieces of news, one expected and one a surprise. We also got a hint of more good news to come. But we also got one bit of bad news. Lets start with the good.
Today pay growth turned positive for the first time in 12 months. Following the devaluation of the pound in the wake of the referendum vote UK pay packets have been squeezed. Rising inflation which rose to 3 per cent in late 2017 coupled with sluggish pay growth meant that average weekly pay had been falling since February 2017. Today we learnt that the squeeze came to an end with positive pay growth of 0.2 per cent in the year to February 2018. Real pay growth is expected to strengthen over the course of the year too.
While it was expected that pay growth would turn positive this month (as our pay projection last month predicted) we also had an unexpected rise in employment and a fall in unemployment in todays stats. Employment rose to a new high of 75.4 per cent and unemployment fell to 4.2 per cent as 55,000 more people moved into work.
We should see more good news on jobs in the months ahead too. The headline unemployment and employment figures are three-month averages based on single-month rates and today the single-month estimates moved sharply. Februarys employment figure is 76 per cent and unemployment is 4 per cent. Next month, once the relatively weak December figures fall out of the three-month average, we could break new records on employment highs and unemployment lows.
This news is very welcome, but we shouldnt get too carried away, at least where pay growth is concerned. Whether or not the pay squeeze has ended depends on where you look. Pay growth is much stronger in the private than the public sector with growth of 0.3 per cent compared to a fall of -0.2 per cent. And while pay in parts of the private sector finance, construction and real estate is gro...

So. What should we be working on, anyways?
Its one of the first questions I get asked. My answer goes something like this.
There are two kinds of work we can be doing today. We can be agents of regression, working to pull the world backwards, downwards, inwards. We can fuel a slide into neofeudalism, peasantry, extremism, bitter division, and authoritarianism. You dont have to think very hard to come up with organizations that fit that bill, do you?
Or we can be agents of motion. Upwards, outwards, forwards. We can create a better future for ourselves, our grandkids, all those who will inherit the world we leave behind. You are quite right to say that this kind of work brings with it greater responsibility, and more risk. But it also offers lasting self-realization, self-knowledge, self-discoverthat is its gift and reward, where the first kind of work only holds the promise of staying on top of old heirarchies of domination and power, and we will come back to that. So the work of today is really at root the work of meaning, happiness, purpose, and freedom. Creating it. Igniting it. Sparking it.
Where does all that come from? I think about work in three levels. None of its about the old stufftechnical mastery, analytical skills, networking, etcetera. Bzzzt. Obsolete. The work were going to have do this century is newand very old. Its timelessand timely. And its profoundly humanizing and meaningfulnot dehumanizing, exploitative, and pointless.
The first level is the simplest. This is a troubled age. The old world is breaking apart. Heres a tiny list of global problems. Inequality, stagnation, despair, loneliness, disconnection, mistrust, inopportunity, imbalances in power and agency. Are you solving any of those problems, the big and nasty ones, with the work that you do? Directly, passionately, immediatelygenuinely? Or are you just vaguely hoping mostly as a PR exercise that as some third-order indirect consequence of what you do, those problems will one day in some distant future maybe, possibly, shrink a little bit? Like, say, all those I-want-my-mommy apps, the ones that do your laundry and deliver your desinger donuts, and cry but were saving gas!. Sure, but only at the price of an imploding society, of inequality, loneliness, mistrust, and despair. Do you see how on balance, those probably fuel regress and collapse, where genuine problem-solving does the opposite?
Work today really means something, as it always has, if we are solving problems. If we are not, then the inconvenient truth is that the work we are doing is meaninglessits not work at all. Its predation, maybe, or exploitation , or at best, time-wasting Im going to be blunt. It doesnt matter one bitnot to society, not to the future, not to history,...

When this chapter of US history is finally written, it will look like a deep dive into a vat of lentil soup. In Syria Friday night, we came, we saw, and we slung 103 cruise missiles into largely symbolic targets, including a supposed chemical weapons plant just outside Damascus, and some other places where we were not likely to kill Russian military personnel. The Russians apparently decided to just suck it up, knowing that the civil war in Syria is nearly over. Then what?
Its the lack of clear acceleration that demands our attention, with or without tropical disturbances. Past cyclical periods, including those related to near-recessions like 2015-16, are uniform in their V shapes. It may not quite be as flat as a perfectly scripted L, but after 2011 in particular thats the closer symbolic reflection.

Just days after Elon Musk gave a softball interview to CBS This Morning explaining Teslas efforts to boost Model 3 production to Musks target of 2,000 a week (down from the 5,000 a week he had initially promised), Buzzfeed News is reporting that the company is temporarily shutting down production of its Model 3 sedan to improve automation.
Of course, this comes after Musk famously claimed Tesla was relying too heavily on robots to run its assembly line (a sentiment he echoed in his CBS interview) and that this was at the root of the companys production hell.

The worlds richest 1% are on course to control as much as two-thirds of the worlds wealth by 2030, according to a shocking analysis that has lead to a cross-party call for action.
World leaders are being warned that the continued accumulation of wealth at the top will fuel growing distrust and anger over the coming decade unless action is taken to restore the balance.
An alarming projection produced by the House of Commons library suggests that if trends seen since the 2008 financial crash were to continue, then the top 1% will hold 64% of the worlds wealth by 2030. Even taking the financial crash into account, and measuring their assets over a longer period, they would still hold more than half of all wealth.
Since 2008, the wealth of the richest 1% has been growing at an average of 6% a year much faster than the 3% growth in wealth of the remaining 99% of the worlds population. Should that continue, the top 1% would hold wealth equating to $305tn (216.5tn) ...
Four years ago, I wrote a piece for Forbes called This New Libor Scandal Will Cause A Terrifying Financial Crisis, in which I explained that the real Libor scandal wasnt the Libor rigging scandal, but the fact that that Libor interest rates were simply too low for too long, which was helping to fuel dangerous economic bubbles around the world.
The future fiscal cost of Generation Rent
For most people the lions share of their income is spent housing and so forking out on accommodation when no longer earning would seem like a tall order for many. The vast majority of retired people own their own home and so have relatively low housing costs, however a significant minority (around 23 per cent) rent and many of these people have some or all of their housing costs paid by the state.
Housing benefit helps those in private and social rented accommodation. People who own their own home and those who have assets worth more than 16,000, and who are not eligible for Pension Credit, do not receive housing benefit. Furthermore, those in institutional accommodation (care homes) also do not qualify. Last year 1.3 million pensioners claimed housing benefit, amounting to 6.3 billion.
How much well have to spend on housing benefit for those in retirement in future depends on a number of things, including the size of the pensioner population, their income, and what type of accommodation they live in. So far most analysis has focused on the impact that an ageing population could have on the housing benefit bill. The Department for Work and Pensions and the Office for Budget Responsibilitys own analysis, last carried out in early 2017, suggests that an older population will mean more pensioners claiming housing benefit, but that spending will fall as a proportion of GDP. However aside from some analysis by the Strategic Society Centre less attention has been paid to the possible impact of changing tenure patterns. Indeed the governments own analysis assumes that the tenure patterns of the future pensioners will be much the same as for the current generation.
However, previous work for the Intergenerational Commission has suggested that this may not be the case. Younger generations are finding it a lot harder to get on the housing ladder and it is uncertain if the low homeownership rates for younger people will be reversed over the next decade, even if some of these people will inherit property wealth from their parents. Our estimates suggest that if recent conditions persist as few as 47 per cent of millennials (those born between 1981 and 2000) may own their own home by the time they reach 45. Some of the remaining 53 per cent may inherit property wealth that they can use to get on the housing ladder, b...

On 19 April, the Supreme Court of Canada will announce its decision in the constitutional case of the Queen v. Comeau, which deals with the legitimacy of interprovincial trade barriers in Canada. As long time readers of this blog will know, I was the expert witness who testified at the 2015 lower court case that was the basis of the appeal now being considered by the Supreme Court.
Here is a backgrounder for people outside of Canada.
Canadas subnational governments, the provinces, impose many restrictions on interprovincial trade that are protectionist in intent and effect. (Canada isnt the only country to have such internal trade barriersee here for a gateway into the academic literature on this subject). Canadas internal trade barriers appear to conflict with section 121 of the 1867 Canadian constitution, which explicitly provides for free trade between Canadian provinces. This constitution is the British North America Act, 1867 (UK), which was retroactively renamed the Constitution Act, 1867 by the Constitution Act, 1982 . [Most academic historians continue to refer to the text by its historical name]. Since I wrote a PhD thesis and book on the political economy of the 1867 constitution, I am considered to be well qualified to speak about the motivations of the creators of section 121. You can read the expert witness report I wrote for the Comeau case here.
I believe that section 121 was included in the Canadian constitution because the framers of this document wanted the new Dominion of Canada to be a single market without fetters on interprovincial trade. These framers included the Fathers of Confederation- a group of British North American politicians- as well some senior British politicians (especially the Earl of Carnarvon but also Adderley, Watkin, and others), and a handful of very accomplished civil servants and lawyers in London.
150 years later, trade barriers are still in place. For those who dont wish to read my entire e...
Blockchain has become one of those buzzwords that commands attention and carries a powerful social glow, yet in the likes of similar buzzwords that have attained such a prized status, it has lost much of its meaning. Blockchain has become a catchall term for just about any digital ledger system regardless of crucial variations in its design. With so many blockchain projects ranging from social impact initiatives to opportunistic marketing ploys, it can be difficult to discern which projects hold real potential.
When the Cold War officially ended in 1991, Washington could have pivoted back to the pre-1914 status quo ante. That is, to a national security policy of America First because there was literally no significant military threat left on the planet.
Post-Soviet Russia was an economic basket case that couldnt even meet its military payroll and was melting down and selling the Red Armys tanks and artillery for scrap. China was just emerging from the Great Helmsmans economic, political and cultural depredations and had embraced Deng Xiaoping proclamation that to get rich is glorious.
The implications of the Red Armys fiscal demise and Chinas electing the path of export mercantilism and Red Capitalism were profound.
Russia couldnt invade the American homeland in a million years and China chose the route of flooding America with shoes, sheets, shirts, toys and electronics. So doing, it made the rule of the communist elites in Beijing dependent upon keeping the custom of 4,000 Wal-Marts in America, not bombing them out of existence.
In a word, gods original gift to Americathe great moats of the Atlantic and Pacific oceanshad again become the essence of its national security.
After 1991, therefore, there was no nation on the planet that had the remotest capability to mount a conventional military assault on the U.S. homeland; or that would not have bankrupted itself attempting to create the requisite air and sea-based power projection capabilitiesa resource drain that would be vastly larger than even the $700 billion the US currently spends on its global armada.
Indeed, in the post-cold war world the only thing the US needed was a modest conventional capacity to defend the shorelines and airspace against any possible rogue assault and a reliable nuclear deterrent against any state foolish enough to attempt nuclear blackmail.
Needless to say, those capacities had already been bought and paid for during the cold war. The triad of minutemen ICBMs, Trident SLBMs (submarines launched nuclear missiles) and long-range stealth bombers cost only a few ten billions annually for operations and maintenance and were more than adequate for the task of deterrence.
Likewise, conventional defense of the U.S. shoreline and airspace against rogues would not require a fraction of todays 1.3 million active uniformed forceto say nothing of the 800,000 additional reserves and national guard forces and the 765,000 DOD civilians on top of that. Rather than funding 2.9 million personnel, the whole job of national security under a homeland-based America First concept could be done with less than 500,000 military and civilian payroll...

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

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 16, 2018
Contact: Evan Greer, 978-852-6457, firstname.lastname@example.org
A key California Senate committee released its analysis of SB
822, California State Senator Scott Wieners bill to comprehensively
restore the 2015 net neutrality protections that the FCC voted to
abolish in 2017. The analysis is a frontal assault on net
neutrality. Sadly, the analysis from the Senate Committee on
Energy, Utilities and Communications looks like ISPs wrote it and
shows that ISPs have a powerful corrupting influence even in the
Democratic-controlled legislature in California.
Its outrageous that California democrats would produce a document that looks like it was literally written by lobbyists for AT&T and Comcast. Theyre calling for giant loopholes that would gut SB 822 and leave California residents vulnerable to ISP scams and abuses, said Evan Greer, deputy director of Fight for the Future, a digital rights group with more than 350,000 members in California, These senators need to know that the entire Internet is watching them, and will not forget if they side with giant telecom monopolies over the basic rights of their constituents.
The legislative analysis, which comes a day before the bills hearing, recommends gutting key protections, opening up two huge and known loopholes that will allow ISPs to get around net neutrality protections.
Specifically the analysis finds that:
1) ISPs should be allowed to charge, block or slow down websites or services at the point of interconnection, where data that ISP subscribers request from online services enter the ISPs network, and
2) That ISPs should be allowed to create all manners of zero-rating plans, including not counting data from an ISPs own services against users data caps or charging online sites so that their data doesnt count against user data caps.
- After the 2010 order came out, ISPs realized they could block, throttle and charge online services by simply not increasing the size of the pipes coming into their networks and waiting for online services to pay them to open them. That meant that the services that ISP subscribers wanted to use would simply not work or be very slow despite paying their ISP to use any and all applications on the internet.
- This behavior was so widespread that it affected tens of millions of Americans who couldnt understand why, despite paying for an expensive fast connection, they couldnt telecommute or play League of Legends online. New Yorks Attorney General is suing TimeWarner Cable for lying to subscribers by promising them fast online videos and gaming, while secretly making sure those services went slowly
- This slowness would stop only if online companies paid the ISPs ransom. For t...

Its no secret that Chicago, one of the most segregated cities in the nation, has an ugly history of housing discrimination. Before the federal Fair Housing Act passed in April 1968 50 years ago people of color were frequently, and flagrantly, prohibited from renting, buying or financing homes in areas where the population was mostly white.
Right before the acts passage, some black Chicagoans found homes, and refuge, in a housing cooperative on the citys South Side. Griffin moved into London Towne Houses Cooperative, in the Pullman community area, in 1967.
JoAnn Kenner, 73, current president of London Towne Houses, also has lived in the community since 67. In the years before fair housing laws, the mentality around integrated communities, Kenner said, was as in the play A Raisin in the Sun Even if you were able to get a mortgage and someone would sell you a house, if you were nonwhite, the neighborhood was not going to be welcoming.
London was like a breath of fresh air, it was like living in the suburbs, she said. Like a little bedroom community. This was a tremendous source of pride for residents, Kenner said, people were begging to get in.

Pierre Dardot and Christian Laval: The violent destruction of the commons of the ZAD (Zone To Defend) of Notre-Dame-des-Landes by the French government is an infamous and revolting act. The current police offensive, led by several thousand gendarmes and CRS equipped with armored vehicles and helicopters is only the exercise of the purest State violence against a set of collective practices that are in progress or in preparation. This includes their fragile material conditions (buildings, meeting places, work tools, herds), and they are now destroyed by bulldozers and police squads.
Since the first day of assault on the ZAD of Notre-Dame-des-Landes, the destruction of the farm of the Cents Noms was a true declaration of social and political war. The destruction of this place was by no means imperative given the criteria invoked by the government in its communication. Nicole Klein, Prefect of Loire Region, justifies the police operation by claiming that the Cents Noms had not submitted an agricultural project. This is obviously false: the inhabitants of this farm were carrying an alternative agricultural project and some of them had submitted a request for regularization.

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