[KR791] Keiser Report: The Precariat – The Dangerous New Class

We are joined by Guy Standing, co-President of the Basic Income Earth Network and author of The Precariat: The Dangerous New Class, to discuss the problem of declining incomes, automation of many jobs, and the rise of the Precariat. As a possible solution to the problem of ever fewer high paying jobs, they discuss basic incomes – the arguments for and against.

The Cost of Stagnation: We’re Living in Limbo

The idea that human life subdivides rather naturally into stages is based on our natural progression from childhood into adulthood and eventual (if we’re lucky) old age.

Confucian thought views life as a developmental process with seven stages, each roughly corresponding to a decade: childhood, young adulthood (16-30), age of independence (30-39), age of mental independence (40-49), age of spiritual maturity (50-59), age of acceptance (60-69), and age of unification (70 – end of life).

Each stage has various tasks, goals and duties, which establish the foundation for the next stage.

Revolving Door on Steroids – New Bank of England Policymaker Allowed to Retain Financial Interest in Hedge Fund

A major reason Vlieghe was not required to fully sever his ties with Brevan Howard was that the partnership — unlike company shares — is an illiquid asset that cannot be sold, the person familiar with the arrangement said.

So perhaps you don’t hire the guy. After all, lowering interest rates, buying financial assets, and funneling trillions to oligarchs doesn’t really take that much skill.

Then again, I’m sure Mr. Vlieghe is some sort of indispensable central planning superhero and the BoE simply couldn’t do without him.

The Greek Coup: Liquidity as a Weapon of Coercion

“My father made him an offer he couldn’t refuse. Luca Brasi held a gun to his head and my father assured him that either his brains, or his signature, would be on the contract.”                                                                                                                                                 — The Godfather (1972)

In the modern global banking system, all banks need a credit line with the central bank in order to be part of the payments system. Choking off that credit line was a form of blackmail the Greek government couldn’t refuse. 

Former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis is now being charged with treason for exploring the possibility of an alternative payment system in the event of a Greek exit from the euro. (more…)

[KR790] Keiser Report: Solutions to World Economy Part I

In this double-header special episode of the Keiser Report, we discuss whether or not there is such a thing as post-capitalism, whether or not we are actually in this phase and examine the solutions to the multiple crises of neoliberal capitalism.

Central bankers are giving away free money to banksters. We’re fighting back by giving away free @start_coin crypto to everyone.
