THE CURTAIN IS ABOUT TO COME DOWN ON THE LONGEST RUNNING POLITICAL PANTOMINE

As expected Britain and the EU have signed a business deal that protects their respective industries. All of 2000 pages. Just shows how forbidingly complex private property with its myriad antagonisms really is. How wasteful.

THE CHINESE CENTURY. The Technology Gap Closes.

THE PRESIDENT WHO MADE “AMERICA BREAK”.

I have added a new spreadsheet which details the subsidies received by corporations. In the article I state that it is difficult to untangle subsidies from taxes but the BEA has done so in the spreadsheet entitled covid-subsidies. Please view Line 20. Total subsidies seem to equal the entirety of the CARES Act at $2.2 trillion. If that is the case then clearly some of these subsidies could not have emanated from the Act itself.

STOLEN LIVES TRUMPS STOLEN VOTES.

Last night, Dr Scott Atlas, Trump’s Covid Rasputin called on the people of Michigan to rise up against the Michigan governor who imposed a strict lockdown to prevent the collapse of the hospital system in her state under the weight of the pandemic. There is real panic in the ranks of senior Republicans, as state governors in both blue and red state are forced to act in the face of an out of control medical emergency and against the White House. As Trump supporters start being seriously affected by this virus they are more likely to rise up against Trump and his cronies who put profit before patients, than they are against those seeking to protect them.

And the Winner is…..the VIRUS.

Biden’s victory speech could be called “give reconciliation a chance”. He will not prosecute Trump but forgive him his transgressions. Pity. Given that the Republicans have acted more like a criminal organization than a political party, beginning by inserting a crony in place to sabotage the US Postal Services in order to disrupt the postal vote beyond deadlines, to the lethal rallies, to implying the postal vote was rigged, to egging on supporters to disrupt the vote, to claiming Trump won the vote on the night. The Republicans may claim the Democrats rigged the vote but in fact it is the Republican Party, God’s own, that ensures that universal suffrage has yet to be achieved in the USA.

THIS IS GOING TO BE THE HARDEST WINTER SINCE THE WAR!

Trump’s impending defeat at the polls represents a vote against Trump, not a vote for Biden. Democrats beware!

BREXIT: AN OVEN READY DEAL OR WAS THE OVEN EVEN SWITCHED ON. Populism in disarray.

A PRESIDENT AND STOCK MARKETS ON STEROIDS.

Populist leaders are like sparklers. They burn bright, furiously and then go out. The specter of Trump losing office fills fellow populist leaders around the world, like Bolsonaro and Modi, with dread. We are entering a new historical period, rich in promise and peril.

TURNOVER IN QUARTER 2. A REVELATION.

WHY THE TRAJECTORY OF THE RATE OF PROFIT IS PARABOLIC, AND, WHY WE NEED TO MOVE ON.
