We’re in the Eye of a Global Financial Hurricane

The only “growth” we’re experiencing are the financial cancers of systemic risk and financialization’s soaring wealth/income inequality.

The Keynesian gods have failed, and as a result we’re in the eye of a global financial hurricane.

The Keynesian god of growth has failed.

The Keynesian god of borrowing from the future to fund today’s consumption has failed.

The Keynesian god of monetary stimulus / financialization has failed.

Every major central bank and state worships these Keynesian idols:

1. Growth. (Never mind the cost or what kind of growth–all growth is good, even the financial equivalent of aggressive cancer).

2. Borrowing from the future to fund today’s keg party, worthless college diploma, particle board bookcase, stock buy-back, etc. (oops, I mean “investment”)–a.k.a. deficit spending which is a polite way of saying this unsavory truth: stealing from our children and grandchildren to fund our lifestyles today.

Hillary May Win in November, but the Duopoly Electoral System is Doomed

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

“The very magnitude of Trump’s loss will further destabilize the duopoly system.”

All signs indicate that Bernie Sanders will follow his original flight plan to Philadelphia, with every intention of disgorging his leftish passengers at the Democratic Party terminal, in July, where they will be expected to board the shuttle busses to Hotel Hillary. How they will behave when they get there, and how many will check in for the duration, is still in question. Donald Trump’s hordes of apprentices are scheduled to arrive at the All-Caucasian Convention Center in Cleveland a week earlier, in a mood to rumble with Washington and Wall Street “elites” that may not even show up for their ass-whipping.

The crisis in the U.S. duopoly electoral system is profound, and will intensify, rather than diminish, after November…
