“Last year, I got a brief glimpse behind the curtain when I made it into an invitation-only discussion of monetary policy. … The level of discussion was unremittingly high, and it was clear that everybody in the room was getting real value out of it.”

By: Loucleve Mon, 27 Jan 2014 16:25:11 +0000 No crisis can last forever, and the main lesson I’m taking from the 2014 World Economic Forum is that, at least as far as the world’s elite are concerned, we’ve finally put the financial crisis behind us…………….

oh right,they must have forgotten about the Emerging Market FX crisis, various nations in mass upheaval, China’s liquidity crisis front-and-center, and growth hopes around the developed and emerging world collapsing.

sure, everything is great!

Bankers created the problem, taxpayers had to pull the car out of the ocean and the motor still won’t start. Every single major bank has been found to be a criminal enterprise in some form or another and the only thing that happens is they get fined a small percentage of their illegal profit. The American congress is certified 100% fascist. Yea Mr. Salmon everything is just fine for the trash screwing the rest of us.

I would argue that it’s quite the opposite of good news for those who are not part of the 0.01%. We glance around and see the new status quo, an unfortunate side-effect of unchecked criminal activity that the SEC and civil courts have finally and reluctantly deemed to have been civilly illegal.

A new singular truth, a new paradigm has taken form:

Mortal people (as opposed to corporate “personhood”) who commit financial crimes for personal gain and simultaneously for the benefit of corporations will henceforth be subject only to fines that can be comfortably recompensed by the corporation.

A corporation could conceivably live forever, so the cost of crimes commited on their behalf can be amortized into oblivion.

Having achieved legal personhood and virtual legal invulnerability, these corporations have become neophyte Demigods.

Very bad news for mere mortals, indeed.

Now what about the rest of us?

Are you going to keep promoting Communism and pretend that it doesn’t create more inequality than any other system?

By: njglea Mon, 27 Jan 2014 14:51:24 +0000 Davos is relevant to the millions of average Americans who lost their jobs and homes to the wealthiest in the world through criminal investing behavior. The American silent majority is about to roar in the next elections. Below is a link to a movie worth watching, The Company Men. It was an award winner at the Sundance Film Festival in 2010 and is available on Netflix. The vast majority of Americans now understand how and why the inequality was allowed, and who allowed it, and the ingenuity of average Americans will save us from the insatiably greedy corporatists through things like true employee-owned companies where predatory investors are not in the equation and profits are shared equally by all employees. _Men
