The US Is Headed to a Pivotal Socio-Economic Crisis / Politics / Social Issues

By: John_Mauldin

BY GEORGE FRIEDMAN AND ALLISON FEDIRKA : This year, the United States will be the main geopolitical power. And President Donald Trump will run it. This will be the first big shift to nationalism in US politics.

This rise in nationalism is global. Its rise stems from the rejection of the internationalist model. This has ruled international relations since the end of World War II.

The World Is Entering a “Localism” Era / Politics / Social Issues

By: John_Mauldin

BY PATRICK WATSON : Against all odds, we made it through 2016.

I think future historians will call last year the, “Year of Shattered Concepts.” Obvious truths proved false, and unstoppable trends stopped.

Globalization is a prime example.

The idea that free trade and technology would merge the planet into one Giant Happy Global Economy is mortally wounded. The incoming Trump administration may well deliver the coup de grâce.

Biased 2017 Forecasts - Civic Decay and Global Disorder (2/2) / Politics / Social Issues

By: James_Quinn

In Part One of this article I discussed the failure of our brains to think rationally due to our biases and the relentless propaganda flogged by our Deep State ruling class. Viewing the future through the looking glass of the Fourth Turning keeps you focused on the three catalysts which will drive all events in 2017 and beyond. I’ve addressed my 2017 Debt forecast in Part One. Now I will make some guesses about what might happen in 2017 related to Civic Decay and Global Disorder.

2017: Where The Truth Lies / Politics / Social Issues

By: Raul_I_Meijer

I was surprised to see how surprised I was, like I’m sure millions of people were, to see the term ‘fake news’ pop up in what are still called ‘respectable’ (which is by now really just another word for ‘old’) news outlets.

Because a huge part of what they have been feeding their readers and viewers for years is that very thing: fake news. Who needs a bunch of bored highschool kids in small town Montenegro when you have the offices of America’s ‘official’ news sources at your disposal?

While dismantling Obamacare, U.S. Congress aims for Social Security reform / Politics / Social Issues

By: Michael_T_Bucci

Humans are woefully unprepared to deal with a surprise asteroid or comet, said NASA researcher Dr Joseph Nuth at the annual meeting of American Geophysical Union this month. Woefully, Americans are as unprepared to deal with the most ideologically driven reactionary Congress in this nation’s history that will convene on January 3 and decide the future of Obamacare, safety net programs, housing, EPA, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, among others.

In the elections of Nov. 8, Americans gave Republicans unified control of government. The policy and budget priorities of Congress promise to reflect a center-right conservative ideology for years to come.

Corporations Getting In Bed With The Government / Politics / Social Issues

By: James_Quinn

The recent deal to keep Carrier jobs in the United States is not at all unusual. It only received so much press because Trump made it a campaign issue and saw an opportunity to record a big early PR victory before he even took office. Government and corporations cooperate, negotiate deals, scratch each others backs, kickback ill-gotten gains, and function as a career advancement funnel for corrupt politicians.

Adventures in Castro’s Cuba / Politics / Social Issues

By: David_Galland

Dear Paraders,

Some years ago my then girlfriend, now wife, Deirdre and I set off to search Planet Earth for our personal paradise.

Cuba was one of the places we seriously considered.

My logic at the time—and this would be about 1995—was that Castro’s regime couldn’t last. And that once his heavy grip on the throat of the economy was released, the country’s natural charms and resources, sited as they are just 90 miles off the coast of Florida, would assure an entrepreneurially-minded individual (me) a solid chance of profiting.

Rising Populism in America, Russia and Europe & The Rise of India / Politics / Social Issues

By: Dr_R_M_Mathew

The entire west is in the grip of Populism. The Spectacular victory of Donald Trump acts as a catalyst for its rise and spread in France, Germany, Britain, Ireland, Italy and etc. The common people in Germany fear that if Angeline Merkel is elected again, Germany will be isolated from the rest of the West or Europe and they have to pay very great price. These rising trends have forced CNN and other media to discuss about the rising or spreading of Populism in the West.

Elites Are an Endangered Species / Politics / Social Issues

By: John_Mauldin

I’m glad to read that the halls of power in Europe are in an uproar over our election.

Their concern is not that Trump is now president. They are worried that elites everywhere—the people who “know” how the world should be run and expect the “little people” to stay in line—are an endangered species.

The Deplorables Have A Message / Politics / Social Issues

By: Barry_M_Ferguson

European Commission president Jean-Claude Junger just made a speech in which he said the following about President Elect Trump: “We will need to teach the president-elect what Europe is and how it works…”

What an arrogant, condescending, pretentious, pompous, ninny. Seems that Mr. Junger needs to learn about the real america and it ain’t the sissy-pants, college campus, socialists he has been talking to. Allow me the opportunity to help out Mr. Junger to better his understanding of the Trump phenomena.

Brahms & Democracy / Politics / Social Issues

By: Antonius_Aquinas

In November of 1876, one hundred and forty years ago, Johannes Brahms’ monumental First Symphony was first heard, performed in Karlsruhe, Germany.  The much anticipated work – which took Brahms over 20 years to complete – has become part of the cannon of Western music.  Ironically, the premier of The Ring by Brahms’ supposed rival and fellow musical genius, Richard Wagner, was performed for the first time in the same year.

Overcoming the Middle-Income Trap with Structural Reforms / Politics / Social Issues

By: Dan_Steinbock

According to the World Bank, China is an upper-middle-income country. However, only structural reforms will allow China to surpass the middle-income trap.

According to a recent report by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), China has entered the ranks of the so-called “upper-middle-income” countries. It has triggered a fair amount of interest among those Chinese who are concerned for the middle-income trap; that is, a status quo in which a country attains a certain level of income but gets stuck at that level.

The Demise of the U.S. Middle Class / Politics / Social Issues

By: Harry_Dent

Our middle class has been shrinking substantially since the 1960s and ’70s. Today, their share of wealth is the lowest in the world at a mere 19.6%!

But what exactly is to blame for the demise of the middle class?

Could it be the outsourcing of manufacturing jobs to China and other Asian countries?

Ungovernability / Politics / Social Issues

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Over the summer I introduced a two-fold assertion: 1) global economic growth is over (and has been for years and won’t come back for many more years) and 2) the end of growth marks the end of all centralization, including globalization. You can read all about these themes in “Globalization Is Dead, But The Idea Is Not” and “Why There is Trump” There are also extensive quotes of the second essay in wicked former UK MI6 spymaster Alastair Crooke’s “‘End of Growth’ Sparks Wide Discontent”.

When I say ‘the end of growth’, I don’t mean that in a Limits to Growth kind of way, or peak oil or things like that. Not because I seek to invalidate such things, but because I mean economics, finance only. Our economies simply ceased growing, and quite a few years ago. The only reason that is not, and very widely, recognized is the $21 trillion and change that central banks have conjured up ostensibly to kickstart a recovery that always remains just around the corner.

From Piety to Pride to Pity, America's Racial Divide / Politics / Social Issues

By: Stephen_Merrill

As a boy growing up in northern Iowa in the early 60’s, I truly sympathized with the plight of Negro people in the United States.  As an altar boy, I knew from Catholic teachings that all men are created equal.     
The violence of white racism in other parts of the nation was plain for Americans to see on their home television screens.  The injustice of Jim Crow laws was disturbing and outrageous.  The brave nonviolent marches of the time seeking racial justice were inspiring to me.  I was appalled and angered by the murder of three civil rights workers in Mississippi and then by the assassination of Martin Luther King.
