    @ Bonn

    What’s so funny about polar bears dying that is causing you to “roll on the dance floor laughing” at an attempt to high light this tragedy?

    Why are people who are concerned enough about this to draw attention to it in this artistic way a “bunch of loonies”?

    I hope that the real reason you are “PMSL” is due to your own mental health issue and you live out the rest of your days in an asylum, where you enjoy “PMSL” forever.

    The C*ck-Eyed Betrayer:
    How Gordon Brown is Stabbing the British Nation In The Front

    As the UK teeters on the brink of national bankruptcy, a Pre-Budget Report which electioneers rather than responsibly confronting our plight is a disgusting betrayal of the British people’s faith. You sense that Captain Darling will be smoke’n’mirroring about the Japanese lesson “Not to cut too early” right up until the moment when his eyebrows are auctioned off to stuff some flammable far eastern trinket. The truth is clear. These spendthrifts have no intention of making the necessary cuts. Their vainglorious egos and clawlike clasps on their limo doors dictate a continuation of the very borrow-and-spend that got us into this mess in the first place. By the time the bill arrives, with 20% interest rates, 75% tax rates, an 80% fall in housing prices, a shattered currency, 20% unemployment and out of control stagflation, Brown, Darling and Balls will be long gone – making 50 grand a pop lecturing Indians and Japanese stupid enough to listen to them.

    The tax on bankers’ bonuses is a gimmick. It is difficult to feel sympathy for the fatcats, but let’s keep our eye on the ball here: so long as Lord Melchett-Brown is prioritising throwing meat to the mob, he is not focusing on the critical issues and the correct remedial actions. Bankers’ bonuses is a sideshow – it will easily be avoided merely by delaying payment. It won’t raise any meaningful money, except for lawyers who might be called in to design a more elegant sidestep. Brown knows this. He doesn’t care. He did it for headlines, not money. What a disgrace. We might as well have Jedward running the country.

    But worse than the bankers’ bonuses is Brown’s next plan – to implement a Tobin tax on financial transactions. This is actually a substantive proposition. It is so staggeringly financially illiterate and would be so irredeemably harmful to the economy of this country that only a man whose tunnel vision is so warped that the “tax-and-electioneer” mantra overrides all rational and fiduciary considerations, could possibly entertain such a proposition.

    Here are a few reasons why a British prime minister proposing a Tobin Tax falls somewhere between complete insanity and outright treason:

    1. The only world-class industry Britain has left is its financial markets. The City earns about 10% of GDP and pays a fortune into the tax coffers. A Tobin Tax would instantaneously destroy a massive swathe of profitable businesses, tax receipts and jobs, in the speculative sector. Is it ‘socially useless’ to provide liquidity to the market, to produce gainful employment for tens of thousands of people and to provide tax receipts which fund public services? No, it is socially useful. And anyway, when did the great and good arrogate the right to legislate on such an arbitrary basis?

    2. That which is not deliberately destroyed will leave – forever. Britain is not a cheap place to do business and and a more strained bottom line will trigger flight to other jurisdictions. As New York and Sweden (through their failed Tobin Tax) have learned, if you provide a hostile environment to an industry, it will pack its bags for good. Earlier this year, India ABOLISHED its own Securities Transactions Tax. First we sent the call centre workers, next we’ll send the traders, the brokers, the speculators, the employers, the employees, the tax receipts, the liquidity. Global consensus over a stultifying and counterproductive transaction tax will only last so long. When it breaks down, financial trading will never again coalesce London-centrically. Way to piss away a unique economic serendipity in favour of short-term politicking and grub money in tax.

    3. That part of the financial sector which remains will pass the costs on to the consumer, which will materialise in the shape of pension funds and insurance funds whose assets will lose value.

    4. Those who talk of the fractional nature (eg 0.005%) of the proposed tax, are financially illiterate. A 0.005% Tobin Tax can be tantamount to a 50% tax on profits AND a 50% tax on losses. Even a miniscule tax will massively increase the costs of doing business; it would reduce volumes, would be deflationary in effect and would deter people from the markets at the very time governments should be doing everything possible to encourage them to return.

    5. To paraphrase William Buiter of the Bank of England’s MPC, profitable and liquid financial activity did not cause this crisis; it is in fact a big part of the solution to the crisis – unless it is taxed into the ground. The real problems lie in actions for which politicians and bankers are equally culpable – irresponsible interest rate policy and a select number of irresponsible financial instruments and practices. Buiter points the way towards the addressing the issues which caused the crisis, not stillbirthing positive aspects of the same system which did not. Subprime (which in some cases was actually forced on the financial industry by politicians) = the bathwater; profitable speculation which provides liquidity, employment and tax receipts = the baby. It’s not rocket science. Tobin himself repudiated his idea towards the end of his life; apart from the many flaws he came to identify in the plan he abhorred the way it was hijacked by anti-capitalists whose motive is envy and whose method is luddism.

    6. The French are the only people who are cheerleading this thing more than Gordon Brown. That’s because they are the fat kid who doesn’t like being shown up. The last financial innovation that came out of France was guillotine futures. To the French, anything that limits Anglo-Saxon success is synonymous with Gallic triumph. They don’t even care where the tax receipts go. “To, like, help the developing world” is their latest suggestion. Their sole motive is to wrench up the handbrake on Le Roast Boeuf economic performance. For all they care, the receipts can go towards cooling down the planet Mercury.

    For Gordon Brown to be at the forefront cheerleading the destruction of the UK’s most profitable industry through a Tobin Tax is rank insanity. If being the centre of the global financial industry is not a birthright so much as a fortuity, the smattering of short-term vote and cash potage Brown is willing to trade for our leading edge is a grotesque betrayal of the national interest. It is wilful myopia to the point of treason. It serves the interest only of a few senior Labour politicians desperate to cling onto their delusions and their power for a little longer. The cost is too much to bear and the corruption has become too acute. Killing the one remaining golden goose because the sheepdog ate your homework is criminal folly. I didn’t think I’d ever see Brown surpass his little gold trade at the turn of the decade which has cost the British taxpayer £6 billion so far. Put me down for a call option in March Guillotines.

    http://thescotsman.scotsman.com/news/Prebudget-report-Broke-helpless-Alistair.5899049.jp

    “Total public sector net debt for 2010-11 is now reckoned at £986bn, up £9bn from the figure presented in the Budget earlier this year. By 2012-15, that debt figure will have ballooned to £1.5 trillion.

    The figure is equivalent to 78 per cent of the entire worth of the UK. To put this in perspective, compare the government’s utter absence of immediate action on this front with the Draconian measures announced by the Irish government yesterday, with cuts in public-sector pay, fresh tax increases and spending curbs in order to prevent the country’s net debt from hitting 60 per cent of GDP.”

    c) Kohl was the worst of them all IMO.
    d) Schroeder second worst
    e) Schmidt was good .. and is thank G*d still alive

    There is hardly a single politician I’d vote for here, except maybe Tauss , despite the “Spitzer Job” pulled on him by the SPD.

    … Tauss admits to possessing the images, but insists he was merely conducting legitimate research aimed at breaking up a child pornography ring in his capacity as a lawmaker. Prosecutors responded in a statement that they found “no objective evidence for the veracity of these claims.”

    You are hilarious… The creation of a second Australia… punish people who you cannot win through debate by placing them on an island.

    Personally I see the climate debate as the creation of a new gravy train, one for the 21st centruy. Sure, the debate is real – and has to be conducted, but whilst intelligent people shoot-the-shit on what is happening the ‘oil’ people are co-opting the entire economic framework from which change is possible. ‘Well’ – they say, ‘we have to do something now that we have passed peak oil!’ And Mother Earth is in there too, making a quick buck whilst the opportunity exists.

    Once again, the so called activists are being hung out to dry – polarised by either their affection for the Alex Jones style of argument or their guilty liking of decadent past-times. A skin trap.

    Let’s skip over “not smart enough to have an opinion” because people that aren’t smart have opinions but generally only parrot the choice of opinion available to their limited resource. You just aren’t reaching these people: Alex Jones is doing a better job. (trust the Americans to know-how to market ideology)

    But dishonest is an interesting catch-phrase.

Few people have suggested this link and it’s worth telling “THE PEOPLE!” Money represents the ability to do work and energy (ie oil) is the actual ability to DO Work. Without it money will become worthless. Unless of course if the money supply contracts sufficiently to meet the worlds new energy predicament. In my opinion the global elites are trying to destroy money and credit availability faster than peak oil can destroy the energy supply. Any thoughts on my thesis?

    Don’t be suckered into thinking the recent plunge in gold prices means a bubble has burst.

    @Youri – lots of great links today, thanks; re; that polar bear cub story, however, it is not complete as it doesn’t mention whether hunting or hunting bans have contributed to rise in population and the article also seems to suggest that because polar bears are good swimmers that the declining ice sheet over the Arctic (and this is clearly not in dispute as nations jockey for shipping lane rights) somehow doesn’t endanger their future; the fact is, that I have only ever heard of declining ice sheets as a problem for polar bears because their diet is almost entirely seal and they cannot capture seal any other way than grabbing them when they pop up through the ice, seal are far too fast and nimble in the water . . .

    Read Crossing the Rubicon and A Presidential Energy Policy by Mike Ruppert. He discusses widely the relationship of energy and money which is quite fascinating IMO. Peak Oil will change everything.

    Nop,

    Polar Bears shift over to an other diet, they adapt yo the changing conditions and eat more eggs and birds for instance.

    An Icelandic researcher has released his findings about the oldest known polar bear remains on Earth, which suggest the northern bears may have adapted to warmer climates and limited sea ice in the past.

    Fossil shows polar bears may have lived through warmer times: study http://www.cbc.ca/canada/north/story/2009/02/04/pbear-fossil.html

    What about the honey bees? Frankly why all the fuzz about these bears while other species are on the brink of extension. We can live with a fewer Polar bears if that’s the case which it even isn’t.
