COVID-19 is shaping a “New Normal”—a Low Touch Economy that requires a strategic response.pic-1-Strategy-Development-Responding-to-COVID-19-240x300.jpeg?profile=RESIZE_710x

This is not expected to end soon but is expected to have a lasting effect on the world. In fact, a new generation of consumer behaviors is already being shaped.

The new world will not be better off or worse. It will be different. During this period of influx, some

While there is much debate over whether a recession is looming or not, the fact is, you need to be prepared. Whether in 2019, 2020, or 2021, it’s not a question of “if,” it’s a question of “when” a recession will occur, as history has proven that fluctuations in the economy are both inevitable

Several central banks, including the Bank of England, the People’s Bank of China, the Bank of Canada and the Federal Reserve, are exploring the concept of issuing their own digital currencies, using the blockchain technology developed for Bitcoin. Skeptical commentators suspect that their primary goal is to eliminate cash, setting us up for negative interest rates (we pay the bank to hold our deposits rather than the reverse).

Let’s Ditch the Economy of the 1% and Replace it with a Human Economy

 

Written by:

Winnie Byanyima

Executive Director, Oxfam International

If we want an economy of the 1%, then GDP is very useful. It tells us all we need to know. But if we want an economy that works for us all, we have to pay attention to what it is not telling us.

In the face of a growing inequality crisis, GDP tells us nothing about the distribution of growth. When just 62 people have the same wealth as half the world’s population,

Ecological and social science research increasingly demonstrate that ‘globalization’ is not what it seems. It does not produce more prosperity and reduce poverty for the world, but just the opposite. Ever more powerful transnational corporate money sequences multiply through organic, social and ecological life hosts looting and polluting them.

Joining the Dots: Why the Establishment Hates Donald Trump

 

By:

Prof. John McMurtry

Global Research, April 05, 2016

On the face of it, Trump is Reagan on steroids. His towering size, his nativist US supremacism, his down-home talk, and  his reality-show confidence make him ideal for the role of bullying and big lies from the oval office.

He is America come to meet itself in larger-than-life image to rejuvenate it as its pride slips away in third-world conditions and a multi-polar world.

Global Research, January 24, 2016

The just-released Oxfam Davos Report which the mass media have ignored arrestingly shows that 62 individuals – 388 in 2010 – now own more wealth than 50% of the world’s population. More shockingly, it reports from its uncontested public sources that this share of wealth by half of the world’s people has collapsed by over 40% in just the last five years.
