Re-Imagining Prosperity: Why Being Paid A Living Wage Could Make Things Worse And What We Can Do About It, By Sophia Schooley

Austerity

Climate change aside, to survive, we would have to change the way we live…Totally. Not only would we have to shift our energy paradigm, but we’d have to share sustainable dwellings, land, electronics, transportation, everything.. or there simply wouldn’t be enough to go ‘round. People keep saying they want world peace and an end to war, but they aren’t willing to put all of humanity on the level playing field that is required in order to end the fighting. We must rid ourselves of the very concept of personal ownership. Most native peoples understood this.

Public Health, Thermodynamics, And The Cat Food Commission, By Dan Bednarz

Poverty

The effects of government-imposed austerity[iv], erroneously claimed to restore fiscal responsibility and restart economic growth, are a reflexive (or cybernetic[v]) reaction to protect the economic interests of wealthy elites at the expense of other citizens.[vi] The funding and operation of the public health system and the array of socioeconomic factors that ultimately ensure a nation’s health[vii] are damaged by austerity . . . → Read More: Public Health, Thermodynamics, And The Cat Food Commission, By Dan Bednarz

Economy, Collapse, And The Interconnectedness Of All Things, By Gary Stamper

Interconnected

While most people are paying attention to Europe’s financial woes—and they are serious—there’s a lot of instability in other places…places you might think don’t matter much, but they do. In a world of global finance, global industry, global climate, and global instability, it all matters, as all of these systems are interconnected and inter-related. It’s been called “a perfect storm of catastrophic confluences.” . . . → Read More: Economy, Collapse, And The Interconnectedness Of All Things, By Gary Stamper

Four Fiscal Cliffs Ahead And A Jobs War, By Paul Farrell

Fiscal Cliff

Election wars are masking the fiscal cliff that America is destined to drop off in early 2013, warns the Congressional Budget Office. History tells us our politicians will slowly drive America off the fiscal cliff and into a mid-1930s-style sinkhole. Why? Because no matter who’s elected, our dysfunctional government will continue to be driven by secretive super-PAC billionaires obsessed about either holding on to or regaining the presidency in 2016. . . . → Read More: Four Fiscal Cliffs Ahead And A Jobs War, By Paul Farrell

Why Going Back To Normal Is No Longer An Option For The American Economy–And Where We’re Headed Now, By Sara Robinson

Co-Op On The Farm

Stop waiting. ‘Cause that train’s gone, and it ain’t coming back. And the sooner we accept that “normal,” as post WWII America knew and loved it, will not be an option in this century, the sooner we’ll get ourselves moving forward on the path toward a new kind of prosperity. The only real question now is: What future awaits us on the other side of the coming shift? . . . → Read More: Why Going Back To Normal Is No Longer An Option For The American Economy–And Where We’re Headed Now, By Sara Robinson

Global Systemic Crisis: USA 2012/2016: An Insolvent And Ungovernable Country

Rioting

Already insolvent it will become ungovernable bringing about, for Americans and those who depend on the United States violent and destructive economic, financial, monetary, geopolitical and social shocks. If the United States today is already very different from the “super-power” of 2006, the year the first GEAB was published, announcing the global systemic crisis and the end of the all-powerful US, the changes we anticipate for the 2012-2016 period are even more important, and will radically transform the country’s institutional system, its social fabric and its economic and financial weight. . . . → Read More: Global Systemic Crisis: USA 2012/2016: An Insolvent And Ungovernable Country

A Conversation About Europe With Dmitry Orlov

reinventing collapse

A far-reaching, fundamental transition, such as the one we are discussing, is impossible without the ability to improvise, to be flexible—in effect, to be able to abandon who you have been and to change who you are in favor of what the moment demands. Paradoxically, it is usually the young and the old, who have nothing to lose, who do the best, and it is the successful, productive people between 30 and 60 who do the worst. It takes a certain detachment from all that is abstract and impersonal, and a personal approach to everyone around you, to navigate the new landscape. . . . → Read More: A Conversation About Europe With Dmitry Orlov

30,000 Billion US Dollars In Ghost Assets Will Disappear By Early 2013–The Widespread Discounting Of Western Public Debt

Ghost 2

In this GEAB N°59 we will analyze in detail this new phase of the crisis as well as the deepening US debt crisis. Moreover, we will begin to present, as indicated in previous GEABs, our forecasts about the future of the United States between 2012 and 2016 (5) starting with a fundamental aspect of Euro-US relations (and more generally the global system that has been in place since 1945), namely the strategic and military relations between the US and Europe. We have estimated that by 2017 the last US soldier will have left European continental soil. Finally, LEAP/E2020 will present its recommendations, dealing this month with currency, gold, capital-based pensions, the financial sector, and commodities. . . . → Read More: 30,000 Billion US Dollars In Ghost Assets Will Disappear By Early 2013–The Widespread Discounting Of Western Public Debt
