Object Lesson: War on Cash Backfires on India’s Economy / Politics / War on Cash

By: MoneyMetals

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a surprise attack on cash in late 2016. He gave Indians a few days to convert the two largest denomination bills then circulating to bank deposits, after which point any undeposited notes would become worthless. The move was intensely controversial. Transactions completed using cash represented the vast majority of economic activity in the country.

If America exits the Paris Accord, climate risks will intensify for emerging Asia / Politics / Climate Change

By: Dan_Steinbock

Even before Irma and its successors, Typhoon Hato and Hurricane Harvey caused massive devastation from the US to Asia. If America will withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, emerging Asia will pay the highest price.

As I left Manila, tropical storm Isang passed the Batanes area in northern Philippines. When I flew to Guangzhou, the low-pressure area morphed into a tropical depression southeast to Taiwan and then into a typhoon in the South China Sea. On August 23, Hato’s eye was directly over Hong Kong as rapid intensification turned it into a category 3-equivalent typhoon. Days later, Hato had left behind 26 people killed, and damages amounting to $1.9 billion in mainland China.

Washington D.C. Dysfunction and Central Bank Chaos / Politics / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: Michael_Pento

On September 5th, the members of both houses of Congress of the United States will clean the beach sand from between their toes and return to work. Our public servants who occupy The House of Representatives have been working on their respective tans since July 29th. The Senate has had a little less time in the sun; they held their final vote on August 3rd despite their pledge to stay until August 11th.

Hopefully, they got a lot of rest, because they have a lot to do upon their return. By the end of September Congress will need to pass a budget bill to avoid a government shutdown. Expect Tea Party Republicans to hold their ground on spending cuts while Trump petitions for his wall. According to recent tweets, Trump is pushing for this fight and welcomes a government shutdown. Get out the popcorn this could get interesting.

Google is the Master Spy of the Intelligence Community / Politics / Google

By: BATR

Is there anyone on the planet that does not have their personal lives exposed to the data collection behemoth of the corporatist and government partnership? Google was developed with and under the intelligence funding of the deep state. The marvel of a premier digital search engine was welcomed as a tremendous achievement by everyone who longed for a definitive method to secure access to sites that reflected market or research results. Few companies names become synonymous with the product or service provided. Who does not refer to making a copy reproduction as Xerox the document? Likewise, as a pure commercial function, Google defined the designation for internet searches. Fast forward to the current state of draconian governance. What stands out is that the systematic rewriting of history and access to a free exchange of ideas and questioning has been supplanted by an approved filter with limited options.

Varoufakis: The Book / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Raul_I_Meijer

About a month ago, I finished reading former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis’ book “Adults in the Room”, subtitled “My Battle With Europe’s Deep Establishment”, and published by The Bodley Head. I started writing about it right away, but noticed I was writing more about my personal ideas and experiences related to Greece than about the book. So I let it rest a bit.

I read the book in, of all places, Athens, sitting outside various old-style cafés. That got me a lot of reactions from Greeks seeing the cover of the book, most of them negative, somewhat to my surprise. Many Greeks apparently do not like Varoufakis. Of course I asked all the time why that is. “He’s arrogant” was/is a frequent one.

North Korea 'Begging for War', 'Enough is Enough', is a US Nuclear Strike Imminent? / Politics / North Korea

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The normally dovish US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley was busy banging the war drums at the UN today, effectively warning of a US pre-emptive first strike unless North Korea virtually immediately ceases its missile and nuclear tests.

"Enough is enough, we have taken an incremental approach, and despite the best of intentions, it has not worked."

"War is never something the Unites States wants - we don't want it now, but our country's patience is not unlimited. We will defend our allies and our territory."

Christopher Columbus and the Falsification of History / Politics / US Politics

By: Antonius_Aquinas

The Los Angeles City Council’s recent, crazed decision* to replace Christopher Columbus Day with one celebrating “indigenous peoples” can be traced to the falsification of history and denigration of European man which began in earnest in the 1960s throughout the educational establishment (from grade school through the universities), book publishing, and the print and electronic media. It is amazing that, as of yet, the federal holiday commemorating the Genoese explorer’s world- changing voyage has not come under attack. It is doubtful that in the current radicalized leftist ideological atmosphere, the national government’s recognition of Columbus will survive much longer.

US Paving the Way for Massive First Strike on North Korea Nuclear and Missile Infrastructure / Politics / China US Conflict

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The emerging Chinese super powers North Korean Proxy continues to accelerate towards being able to punch a hole through the US Military Empires encirclement of China as every other day brings North Korea a step closer towards it's primary objective of hitting and destroying the US Military base on Guam, home to over 10,000 troops and 160,000 US citizens, and which as the following map illustrates is just 1 of 400 US military bases in Asia for the express purpose of encircling and containing China.

Trump Reset: US War With China, North Korea Nuclear Flashpoint - Video / Politics / China US Conflict

By: Nadeem_Walayat

This is my latest video in my Trump Reset War with China series that details the key mega-trend geopolitical consequences of the Trump Presidency, of why the United States under Trump would be trending towards an inevitable war with China, economic, cyber and even outright military conflict, something that many were skeptical of when I wrote my 3 pieces of in-depth analysis before Trump took office, but given what has subsequently transpired should be recognised as now being far more probable.

The Swamp Strikes Back / Politics / US Politics

By: John_Browne

On August 21st many Americans witnessed the moon cast a historic but short-lived shadow across the United States. One day later, President Trump reversed his previously stated position on the 16 year old Afghan War, thereby eclipsing the possibility that the United States would finally come to its senses and rethink a failed strategy that is likely to fail for years, perhaps decades, to come. The abrupt change, in what had been a central plank in candidate Trump’s appeal to voters thirsting for change in American foreign policy, came hard after the departure of Steve Bannon from the White House. As a self-avowed nationalist, Bannon had represented a true break in interventionist Republican thinking that had entangled the United States in intractable conflicts around the globe. To put an exclamation point, Sebastian Gorka, the last remaining proponent of the Bannon perspective, was forced out of the White House. The counter-revolution appears to be complete.

Trump’s Decision On North Korea Will Define His Administration / Politics / North Korea

By: John_Mauldin

BY GEORGE FRIEDMAN AND JACOB L. SHAPIRO : Most US presidencies are defined by their foreign policies, and most foreign policies are defined by wars—those that were fought and those that weren’t.

The biggest decision an American president faces is whether to send the nation’s soldiers into certain danger to protect and defend the national interest.

Why Can’t Wheeler-Dealer Trump Cut a Deal with North Korea? / Politics / North Korea

By: Mike_Whitney

The United States and South Korea are currently engaged in large-scale, joint-military war games that simulate an invasion of the North, the destruction of the DPRK’s nuclear weapons sites, and a “decapitation operation” to take out the supreme leader, Kim Jong-un. The objective of the operation is to intensify tensions between North and South thereby justifying the continued US occupation of the peninsula and the permanent division of the country.

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.)

Trump’s Fall - The Eclipse of the Presidency? / Politics / US Politics

By: Dan_Steinbock

As violent demonstrations linger domestically and nuclear risks loom abroad, the White House has flamed new domestic divisions, while paving the way for international trade wars. The coming fall will be the hottest - and potentially most violent - in decades in America. 

America is amid a great unease. While Charlottesville’s white supremacists and violent riots brought forward old race divisions and seemingly new hate groups, North Korea’s nuclear threats prevail.

In the fall, the White House and the Congress must also cope with a set of political time bombs, including the impending fight for the nation’s debt ceiling (US debt amounts to $20 trillion, or 105% of GDP), the 2018 federal budget, polarizing tax reforms, infrastructure spending and possibly another effort to overthrow Obamacare (i.e., The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, ACA).

Bridlington Harbour, Child Injured on Purla Speed Boat August 2017 / Politics / Holidays

By: N_Walayat

Everyone loves going to the sea side on a hot summers day. Just be careful if you pop down to Bridlington Harbour and decide to take a ride on the speed boats such as Purla, as our experience was that they cram too many people onto the boat i.e. 5 on the front row. Unfortunately this increases the risks of getting injured as was 12 year old Sami's experience.

The problem is that if your sat at to close to the ends of the front row then there is a good chance your going to get your face banged on the rim that curves round to the front, especially if your a child. Luckily it could have been worse. Also the staff just wanted us to move on because our bleeding son was apparently putting off other people from riding their speed boat, even shouting at us to move on!

GCSE Exam Results 2017, Silverdale School, Sheffield - Adnaan's Story / Politics / Education

By: N_Walayat

It's GCSE results day today, so 16 year olds across England and Wales will have been busy popping down to their secondary schools to find out if they managed to get their requisite GCSE grades for the courses they intend enrolling on for September start.

Overall minimum pass grades awarded of C/4 are marginally down on last year by 0.6% to 72%. Whilst a C is a pass, given the competition to get accepted on courses then the ultimate objectives are to achieve the A* and 9 grades for selected subjects. So if a student is choosing to enrol on 3 A-levels in September than objective would be to achieve 3 A*'s in those 3 chosen subjects as a sign of having the capability in achieving a similar grade at A level.
