The Case For A 21-Hour Work Week

Fast Coexist To save the world—or really to even just make our personal lives better—we will need to work less. Time, like work, has become commodified, a recent legacy of industrial capitalism, where a controlled, 40-hour week (or more) in factories was necessary. Our behavior is totally out of step with human priorities and the nature of today’s economy. To lay the foundations for a “steady-state” economy—one that can continue running sustainably forever—a recent paper argues that it’s time for advanced developed countries transition to a normal 21-hour work week. There is nothing natural or inevitable about what’s considered...

Koch Brothers’ Operatives Fill Top White House Positions, Ethics Forms Reveal

The Intercept If the billionaire Koch brothers turn to the White House for favors, they will see many familiar faces. Newly disclosed ethics forms reveal that a significant number of senior Trump staffers were previously employed by the sprawling network of hard-right and libertarian advocacy groups financed and controlled by Charles and David Koch, the conservative duo hyper-focused on entrenching Republican power, eliminating taxes, and slashing environmental and labor regulations. Some of the relationships were well-known. Marc Short, for instance, now Trump’s chief liaison to Congress, previously led Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, the dark money nonprofit used by the Koch brothers and...

Folha De S. Paulo FINANCIAL TIMES Mexico, the world’s biggest buyer of US corn, is considering offering duty-free access to Brazilian or Argentine maize as an alternative to American imports in a move that could have big consequences for US farmers worried about President Donald Trump’s trade and tax agenda.

The Guernsey Experiment: Is It an Effective Solution for Eliminating Debt Slavery?

Omnithought The Guernsey Experiment was a financial experiment done by the States of Guernsey in the early 1800s to raise fund for improving the public market and reducing the debt of Guernsey.

After a few years of implementing the Guernsey Experiment, the economy of Guernsey improved significantly, allowing the people to live in prosperity. Here is an introduction about what the Guernsey Experiment from MONNETA.org: After the Napoleonic Wars, Guernsey was in dire straits. Roads...

$10 Trillion Missing from Pentagon and No One — Not Even the DoD — Knows Where It Is

 The Free Thought Project Over a mere two decades, the Pentagon lost track of a mind-numbing $10 trillion — that’s trillion, with a fat, taxpayer-funded “T” — and no one, not even the Department of Defense, really knows where it went or on what it was spent. Even though audits of all federal agencies became mandatory in 1996, the Pentagon has apparently made itself an exception, and — fully 20 years later — stands obstinately orotund in never having complied. Because, as defense officials insist — summoning their best impudent adolescent — an audit would take too long and,...

Russia Prepares For Split With International Banking System

Russia Insider Russia has successfully developed and implemented an alternative should it be excluded from international banking systems, according to a recent report. As far as western sanctions go, by far Russia’s largest vulnerability is in its banking sector, which for better or for worse is tied to the hip with international banking. If Russia wishes to maintain the status quo, there’s not much that can be done about this dependency. But shortly after sanctions were announced in 2014, Moscow set out to prepare for the worst-case scenario: being cut off from the Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) system. In layman’s terms,...

Massive permaculture project lifts 2.5 million out of poverty

Exposing the Truth If you visit the Loess Plateau right now you will find a suitably luscious landscape in the province thought to be the cradle of Chinese civilisation. Agricultural land is rich in produce and animals, tourism levels have significantly increased, and farmers are reaping the rewards of an economic boom on the land they own, not merely tend to. It is incredible to think that little over 10 years ago this flourishing ecosystem was devastated to the point of collapse, and no longer able to support the population. Centuries of unsustainable farming on the land caused alarming levels of soil erosion,...

Why The 2017 French Election Could Trigger A Major Market Drop

Zero Hedge In 1981, the French stock market dipped in fears over François Mitterrand’s presidency win and the same could happen again, says Saxo Bank’s head of macro analysis Christopher Dembik. In the 30 days following the first round in the 1981 election, the French stock market dropped by over 20% as a result of concerns about the economic policies of Mitterrand, who eventually became president from 1981 to 1995. Dembik says that if Marie Le Pen – who has an anti-Eurozone stance – wins, the same steep dive could happen to the CAC 40 by 20% after the...

Deepening EU Banking Crisis Meets Euro-TARP and Taxpayers

 Wolf Street If the ECB scales back stimulus, banks face even greater risk of collapse. But now there’s a new solution. By Don Quijones, Spain & Mexico, editor at WOLF STREET.

Stockman: “After March 15 Everything Will Grind To A Halt”

Zero Hedge Two weeks after David Stockman warned that “the market is apparently pricing in a huge Trump stimulus. But if you just look at the real world out there, the only thing that’s going to happen is a fiscal bloodbath and a White House train wreck like never before in U.S. history” and exclaimed that, when looking at markets, “what’s going on today is complete insanity” he is back with another interview, this time with Greg Hunter of USAWatchdog in which he, once again warns, that a giant fiscal bloodbatch is coming soon, and urges listeners to pay...
