I Thought I Was Middle Class / Politics / Social Issues

By: James_Quinn

“The best way to teach your kids about taxes is by eating 30% of their ice cream.” – Bill Murray

When I saw that slimy tentacle of the Goldman Sachs vampire squid, Gary Cohn, bloviating about Trump’s tax plan and how it was going to do wonders for the middle class, I knew I was probably going to get screwed again. And after perusing the outline of their plan, it is certain I will be getting it up the ass once again from my beloved government.

The Left Behind of America and Germany, Europe / Politics / Social Issues

By: Raul_I_Meijer

“Forget Germany, Spain Is The Real Problem”, reads a headline. Eh… no. Germany is definitely the problem in Europe. Spain is a bit player. That doesn’t mean nothing major could happen in Spain in its fight with Catalonia, and soon, but Spain, like all EU nations, is a de facto province of Germany.

What matters in the end is how Brussels and Merkel deal with Spain. And while it’s tempting to say that perhaps Brussels, the EU, is the main European problem, the European Union is run exclusively by and for Germany, so that doesn’t work either.

Racism & Divisiveness: The Real-Life Economic Solutions / Politics / Social Issues

By: Harry_Dent

As a new generation emerges into the workforce, it brings with it revolution, be it technological, social, or political. They have fresh new ideas and their own, unique values, which grow to dominate as the older generation filters into retirement.

That’s part of what’s going on today in America, where extreme divisiveness and racial stresses threaten to tear us apart. (Another part is that this is all part of a larger 250-Year Revolutionary Cycle, and an 84-Year Populist Movement Cycle, to name just two.)

Perfect Storm - This Fourth Turning has Over a Decade of Continuous Storms to Come / Politics / Social Issues

By: James_Quinn

Several weeks ago I had to drive west on the Pennsylvania Turnpike to pick up my son after his sophomore year at Penn State. I’ve made this trip a dozen times over the last few years, since this is my second son attending Penn State, with a third starting in the Fall. It’s a tedious, boring, protracted, four hour trek through the rural countryside of the Keystone State. During these trips my mind wanders, making connections between the landscape and the pressing issues facing the world. I can’t help but get lost in my thoughts as the miles accumulate like dollars on the national debt clock.

More often than not I end up making the trip in the midst of bad weather. And this time was no different. The Pennsylvania Turnpike is a meandering, decades old, dangerous, mostly two lane highway for most of its 360 mile span. Large swaths of the decaying interstate are under construction, as the narrative about lack of infrastructure spending is proven false by visual proof along the highways and byways of America.

If Kensington and Chelsea Council won't use its powers to force action on this it should be ordered to bring back into commission these flats that the Sutton Trust/Affinity Sutton itself vandalised in 2015 after decanting the residents says BWTUC

Subversion And Constructive Synthesis Of Capitalism And Socialism / Politics / Social Issues

By: Raymond_Matison

In America today there is evidence of long-term subversion undermining our democratic Republic.  Often tactics and propaganda are attributed to liberals, conservatives, Democrats or Republicans.  Unless we can be more precise in identifying and labeling persons or political parties responsible for this subversion, we will not be able to protect or maintain our Republic.  At a minimum, there is a need to review political party current platforms, and to find the source of subversion which dramatically is veering our republic away from its Constitutional origins towards a socialist state.

Brace Yourself For The Coming Economic Transformation, Sliding Down the Social Class Scale / Politics / Social Issues

By: John_Mauldin

If the average person in the US feels as though they are going nowhere fast, there is a real reason for it.

Federal Reserve data shows people are earning less than they did 17 years ago. But the real story is even worse than that.

The chart below shows that median income in the US is actually down over the last 17 years and is only 3% higher now than it was 30 years ago. Those are inflation-adjusted numbers.

Poverty Is Going Extinct But The Middle Class Is Still In Trouble / Politics / Social Issues

By: John_Mauldin

On a global basis, the number of people trapped in extreme poverty has dropped this century. That trend does not mean everyone everywhere is living comfortably. Many millions still endure terrible conditions. But their numbers are shrinking.

The reason for the improvement, I believe, is two-fold. Technology and free trade. These have brought economic growth to formerly stagnant economies.

Choose Your Neighborhood Wisely / Housing-Market / Social Issues

By: Rodney_Johnson

To make good on a promise to my wife, a native Texan, we just completed our move from Florida back to Texas.

When we left the Lone Star State in 2005 (on her birthday, no less), she told me she’d like to move back when the kids had left the house. With the youngest now a freshman in college, it was time.

We could live anywhere, since my work doesn’t require a geographic center. So last fall we narrowed the search for a new home by considering climate, natural beauty, proximity to a major airport and health care, and travel time to relatives.

The Political Left Has Lost Its Vision / Politics / Social Issues

By: John_Mauldin

BY GEORGE FRIEDMAN AND JACOB L. SHAPIRO : French voters headed to the polls on Sunday in the first round of France’s presidential election. With the rise of National Front candidate Marine Le Pen, the election raises the question of what is happening to the “left.” What does it even mean to be on the left?

When the Industrial Revolution led to urbanization, the left became the champion of the poor and the working class. But over the last few decades, this has changed.

‘Ruralization’ and ‘Agriculturization’: The Last Option for Human Survival and Growth... / Politics / Social Issues

By: Dr_R_M_Mathew

... in the Age of Economic Crises and Terrorism

From the Myth of Growth and Abundance, the Humanity has entered into the Reality of Poverty and Survival, besides the Prolonged Economic Crisis for the destabilization of the rural economies, drastic decline of farm or food production and shrinking global economy as the byproducts of urbanization and aggressive industrialization.  Deflating drinking and irrigation water supply due to changes in seasons and the weather, rising atmospheric heat or cold resulting in floods, draughts and wild fire and above all encroachments of fertile farm lands for industrialization and urbanization have become more evident.

America, the Waning Days / Politics / Social Issues

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Potential earthquakes and black swans are right ahead of us. What else is new? On April 16, Turkey has a referendum to decide whether Erdogan will become de facto supreme ruler. What happens if he loses the referendum is completely unclear, undiscussed even, but it’s obvious a loss would have the country shake on its already shaky foundations.

The Turkish economy is in horrible shape and Erdogan’s post-coup firings (hundreds of thousands) and jailings (tens of thousands) have made large parts of society unattended. The biggest of which may well be the army; you can’t fire large numbers of officers and pilots and expect to retain the same strike effectiveness.

Politicians Say Social Security Is Sustainable, but Numbers Show Otherwise / Politics / Social Issues

By: John_Mauldin

We may be the envy of the world in some ways, but the US also has no shortage of stress. Today, we’ll look at some data on growing financial anxiety that is plaguing an increasingly large part of the nation.

Last week, I ran across a survey from NerdWallet on this very issue. They asked 2,000 Americans of all ages about their biggest financial concerns. It turns out the biggest worries are healthcare expenses, lack of emergency savings, and lack of retirement savings.

The American Dream, Twice Removed / Politics / Social Issues

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Nicole Foss is in Christchurch, New Zealand right now for the Living Economies Expo, and sent me, I’m still in Athens, Greece, a piece written by yet another longtime Automatic Earth reader, Helen Loughrey (keep ’em coming!), who describes her efforts trying to find a rental home in Fairfield County, Connecticut.

The first thing that struck me is how effortless and global sending information has become (category things you know but that hit you anyway occasionally, which is a good thing). The second is that the fall-out of the financial crisis has followed the same path as the information ‘revolution’: that is, it’s spreading faster than wildfire.

Ominous Social Trends That Will Shape Our Future / Politics / Social Issues

By: John_Mauldin

We’ve touched on this before, but there’s a strong sense in much of the developed world that we’re headed for harder times. Deficits increase. Unemployment rises. The benefits of the future have been unevenly distributed throughout society.

It is not just in voting patterns that you can sense malaise. You can see it in the economic numbers and in sociological research.

Foundation – Fall Of The American Galactic Empire / Politics / Social Issues

By: James_Quinn

“The fall of Empire, gentlemen, is a massive thing, however, and not easily fought. It is dictated by a rising bureaucracy, a receding initiative, a freezing of caste, a damming of curiosity—a hundred other factors. It has been going on, as I have said, for centuries, and it is too majestic and massive a movement to stop.”Isaac Asimov, Foundation

A Walk Down the Dark Road of Bad Government / Politics / Social Issues

By: David_Galland

Dear Parader,

One of the most fascinating traits of the human herd is its willingness to be led off a cliff by political miscreants.

In modern history, we have two perfect examples to illustrate the point: Zimbabwe and Venezuela.

Accompanying me this morning is a song I first heard in the excellent movie, Hell or High Water starring Jeff Bridges and Chris Pine. If you haven’t seen it, I couldn’t recommend it more highly. The song is Dollar Bill Blues by Townes Van Zandt, and I have tacked some other songs of a somewhat similar genre onto it.

Why The Status Quo Is Under Increasing Attack By 'Populist People Power' / Politics / Social Issues

Protecting The Status Quo Is Failing

We need to fully appreciate yet another example of what the mainstream media doesn't yet get! The "People" increasingly don't see the system working for them anymore and have as consequence become much more willing to try something very different, possibly even extreme, depending on how serious their personal blight has become!

Seven Bowls – Current Threat, Personal & Financial Protection Shield / Politics / Social Issues

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Although finance & economics are the primary themes for the Hat Trick Letter and its related research, it is impossible to ignore the reality of widespread coordinated aggravated attempts to destroy our lovely blue orb, planet Earth. The globalists are hell-bent on ruining the entire biosphere for the home to humanity. Gold & Silver might be the best protection for the financial and economic deterioration, if not destruction, as individuals and financial entities work to ensure the preservation of their assets. However, Gold & Silver should be part of any concerted effort toward preparedness in emergency supply. The Jackass has diverted in this one article instance from the primary newsletter themes in order to warn people about the threat to the entire human species. The common theme among the perpetrators is the Satanism practiced by the Western Elite, who are gradually being exposed for their pedophilia and child sacrifice rituals. Their symbols are all through the corporate signposts, often identified by alert observers.

America's Uncivil War and What You Can Do About It / Politics / Social Issues

By: David_Galland

Dear Parader,

Not to be overly dramatic, but a civil war has begun in America. Everyone knows it to be true, but no one knows what comes next.

The conflict of visions between freethinkers and the socialists who believe government should hammer humanity into model citizens has reached what divorce lawyers call “irreconcilable differences.”
