At last, we seem to be awakening from the bad dream of “tick-box medicine”
Doctors allowed themselves to be reduced to automatons. [...] NICE has recently changed the rubric that prefaces its guidelines, stressing that they are not mandatory and that they must be tailored to each individual patient. This would once simply have been good practice. That it has become necessary for NICE to spell it out shows just how far the profession has been degraded by the tick-box culture. [...] reduced to automatons, and their patients to pill-swallowing machines.

Land degradation costs the world up to $10.6tn a year, report says | Global development | The Guardian
More than half of the world’s arable land is moderately or severely degraded, according to a report published on Tuesday by the Economics of Land Degradation (ELD) Initiative (pdf). The report estimates the cost of this environmental destruction, not only from lost agricultural production and diminished livelihoods, but also from the lost value of ecosystem services formerly provided by the land, including water filtration, erosion prevention, nutrient cycling and the provision of clean air. [...] “We should look at realigning the incentive structure that we have away from incentives that degrade the land to those that promote sustainable management,” [...] reduction in biodiversity, ecosystems, and ecosystem services.”

Cycling: three-quarters of Britons support more spending on bike use | Environment | The Guardian
[ where is the bike lobby here? its a bn dollar business. ] Biggest ever survey on subject says people would like government to spend almost seven times more on bike infrastructure than it does now. [...] Currently, about 1% to 2% of all trips in the UK are made by bike, as against figures of 25% or more in some nations, such as the Netherlands. Activists argue that more bike use would greatly help combat the ongoing health crisis caused by physical inactivity, as well as reducing vehicle pollution, among other benefits. “The message from the public couldn’t be clearer: there’s a desire to cycle more, but that a lack of safe places to ride bikes is off ­putting,” said Jason Torrance, policy director at Sustrans. [...] “Physical inactivity, congestion and declining air quality cost our economy billions. Governments must act to secure a greater share of current transport investment for cycling and walking.”

WHO | A call for higher taxes on tobacco
Dr Margaret Chan and Mike Bloomberg call for higher taxes on tobacco. The evidence is clear: raising tobacco taxes cuts usage, encourages smokers to quit and discourages young people from picking up the habit in the first place. The United Nations ought to encourage countries to raise tobacco taxes to support the world’s Sustainable Development Goals and reduce tobacco use.

Bumper payouts for housebuilding executives as market booms | Business | The Guardian
Two of Britain’s largest housebuilders, Berkeley Group and Persimmon, could hand out about £1bn to their top executives and managers in pay and bonuses over the next six years, boosted by strong UK house prices and government-subsidies for home-buyers. Tony Pidgley, founder and executive chairman at Berkeley, is expected to face tough questions on Tuesday at the group’s shareholder meeting near its headquarters in leafy Cobham, Surrey, after it emerged last month that his pay package last year was worth £23.3m. [...] Meanwhile, executives at Persimmon, the UK’s largest housebuilder, also have a Berkeley-style incentive scheme that is one of the most generous to be found at a London stock market-listed firm.

Wellness in the workplace: how health initiatives can boost staff productivity | Guardian Small Business Network | The Guardian
Encouraging colleagues to exercise can help remedy strains and stresses – but there’s a fine line between wellbeing and piling on more pressure to achieve [...] “It offers the team opportunities to mix outside the workplace, so the engineering team gets to hang out with the care team, for example, and this contributes significantly to morale. I would definitely recommend other businesses consider a similar initiative.” [ investment in your company and people! ] [...] [its] about balance and tailoring activities to the interests of your staff. Provided you get this right, you can improve productivity levels and staff attitudes towards your business – in a 2013 survey by Mind, 60% of workers said they’d feel more motivated if their employer took action to support their mental wellbeing.

Russian debtors despair as boom turns to bust - BBC News
Millions of Russians took out loans during the economic boom years, but now they face crippling debts and the law is not on their side, the BBC's Oleg Boldyrev reports. [...] The Russian Central Bank says those chronic debts now total 1tn roubles (£10.7bn; $16.7bn). And that is at least 10% of the total personal debt - 10% which cannot be recovered by the banks. [...] "We were a bit stupid," Elena says. "They told us the minimum payment was 5,000 roubles a month and we paid that every month. But that was just the interest, not the loan itself." [...] [ moral of banks - make new loans (performance) vs prudence (and being a bit more conservative) to deny one person a loan just to see them off at another bank where they will get the loan and that rep getting his bonus, and you not. ] [...] After the good years many Russians are now getting a harsh lesson in capitalism - and inadequate regulations mean there is nothing to soften the blow.

If People Understood This One Thing, We Would Have Revolution Overnight - YouTube
Martin Luther King, Jr. was working towards a guaranteed basic income for all when he was killed. Wealth inequality, neoliberalism, the actions of the Federal Reserve, along with the greed and theft of the global elite have made the call for a guaranteed basic income for all even more urgent in 2014 than in the 1960s. [...] In his new book, The Economics of Revolution, DeGraw writes: “Having that much wealth consolidated within a mere 1% of the population, while a record number of people toil in poverty and debt, is a crime against humanity. For example, it would only cost 0.5% of the 1%’s wealth to eliminate poverty nationwide. Also consider that at least 40% of the 1%’s accounted for wealth is sitting idle. That’s an astonishing $13 trillion in wealth hoarded away, unused.” In this clip from the full 30-minute interview, DeGraw points out that the Federal Reserve is already printing money and giving it away to the financial elite.

BBC News - Out-of-hospital plan 'a recipe for disaster', MPs warn
The Health Select Committee said the NHS faced "one of its greatest challenges" dealing with patients with long-term conditions, such as diabetes. They account for 70% of health spending but only 30% of patients. The NHS has tried to ensure more care is done in the community, but the MPs questioned the wisdom of this strategy. The cross-party group said these patients would still need specialist hospital care. [...] Figures show these patients are responsible for two-thirds of outpatient and A&E visits and occupy 77% of beds.

David Friedberg: Most Entrepreneurs are Not Rock Stars - YouTube
there is a feedback loop between VC's (capital) and Press/Reporting/Lack of Original Reporting; former want's to find and pick the needle in the hay stack and put that badge on his jacket and wear it for life carrying it everywhere he/she goes, the latter wants to be the one seeing and reporting the the needle in the hay stack and wants to be able to always link to it back when he/she covers the exit in what form it may ever be. Having that on record. And then there are those that read all that crap about the former and the latter. ||| Brad Feld: Why Are You Doing It? - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cIe2dCe6Cs

will take +20 years to exchange gas guzzelers with electric cars. and planet is at its limit of capacity to take up carbonemission's. we are near the cliff, and when we are at the cliff - consequences are unstoppable, catastrophic. - there has to be a price on carbon emissions of any kind. >> ie petrochemical industry has to pay a 1, 2, 3% tax on their profit, incrementally increasing ... money is put in to subsidize clean tech research, product, employment.

SolarCity's Chairman Elon Musk annouces it will buy solar panel maker Silveo
Without decisive action to lay the groundwork today, the massive volume of affordable, high efficiency panels needed for unsubsidized solar power to outcompete fossil fuel grid power simply will not be there when it is needed,” according to the blog post penned by SolarCity Chairman Elon Musk and the two co-founders, Peter Rive and Lyndon Rive. [...] “The timing is right to make an acquisition and get into advanced solar panel manufacturing. If we don’t do this, then we thought there’s a risk of not being able to have the solar panels we need to expand the business in the long term,” Elon Musk said on the conference call. [...] In both cases, Musk’s goal is to make sure that the components critical to his vision of the future — electric cars and solar energy — are available and cheap enough to beat fossil fuels.

Why Elon Musk Just Opened Up All of Tesla's Patents : The New Yorker
It’s a risky move but a shrewd one. It’s one that wouldn’t make a lot of sense for a lot of companies. But it does for Tesla. The company’s stock has doubled in the past year, but the industry is struggling. Musk’s biggest electic-car-entrepreneur-frenemy, Shai Agassi, led his company, Better Place, into bankruptcy a year ago. It’s a good moment for the industry to get a jolt. “Putting in long hours for a corporation is hard,” Musk said on Thursday during a conference call. “Putting in long hours for a cause is easy.” What exactly is that cause? It’s bringing clean cars to the people, of course. But it’s also, it seems now, showing the world a new way to think about innovation. || +++ http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/06/17/teslas-elon-musk-on-making-electric-car-patents-public-were-really-all-in-the-same-ship/ >> // Industrial Policy - 1% and increasing incrementally on gas guzzling cars. + emissions tax on consumer driving a gas guzzeler.

Then the prize of mortages are cheap because of ZIRP ... once rate rise in 3-5 years ... people on median income who wouldn't have been able to afford one otherwise can't afford one now - when rate rise. peoples houses get repossessed and gov with the scheme (gov guarantees 15% of the loan) is having to pay part of the bill.

▶ Michael Sandel: Why we shouldn't trust markets with our civic life - YouTube
n the past three decades, says Michael Sandel, the US has drifted from a market economy to a market society; it's fair to say that an American's experience of shared civic life depends on how much money they have. (Three key examples: access to education, access to justice, political influence.) In a talk and audience discussion, Sandel asks us to think honestly on this question: In our current democracy, is too much for sale?

Wolfgang Münchau über die Zinspolitik der EZB - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Aber am Ende ist das alles Haarspalterei. Es läuft auf dasselbe Ergebnis hinaus: Die Zinsen werden lange bei null bleiben, wahrscheinlich über mehrere Jahre. Solange es keine Anzeichen für eine dauerhaft steigende Inflation gibt - und die wird es auf absehbare Zeit nicht geben - solange wird sich dieser Ausblick nicht ändern. [...] Es besteht ein klarer Zusammenhang zwischen Geldmenge und den Preisen für Wertpapiere. [...] Es besteht die akute Gefahr, dass ähnlich wie in Japan vor zwanzig Jahren die Geldpolitik nicht greift, solange der Bankensektor so krank ist.

RSA Animate - Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us - YouTube
This lively RSA Animate, adapted from Dan Pink's talk at the RSA, illustrates the hidden truths behind what really motivates us at home and in the workplace.

- reward schemes for cognitive tasks do not work.
- mechanical task, reward schemes for performance do work

Thus,
>> pay people enough, to take the issue of money off the table and people think about the work.
Then 3 Factors determine performance and satisfaction:
- autonomy (self-direction), mastery (of skill), purpose (contribution to something that matters and or is greater than you).

Barofsky On Geithner: "We Should See People In Handcuffs" | ZeroHedge
Neil Barofsky continues his vendetta against NYFed/Fed/Tim Geithner

because Fed, NYFed and BOE (and BBA) knew of LIBOR rigging, and they allowed it to happen (and continue) in a system whose very survival is increasingly reliant on rampant criminality (rigging and non-transparent indicators of solvency).

Barofsky says is that Geithner and other regulators who allowed Lieborgate to proceed should not only lose their job but we should "see [Geithner] in handcuffs."

Health reform in America: A United front | The Economist
Capitalism (Market Mechanism) is pushing forward better. Not Government ...

"United is changing how it pays hospitals and doctors. America’s existing system suffers from perverse incentives: doctors make more money from treating sick patients than from keeping them well. United already has pilot programmes to reward doctors for providing good, efficient care. But in January it told its customers that such contracts would become the norm.

push America toward better, cheaper care. Many will cringe at the idea that an insurer would be the one doing the pushing. However Dr Ho argues that the shift is “irreversible, with or without reform.”

>> Aim is to keep people healthy, and making them better.
>> 2nd Aim should be prevention care, that people are not going to be sick in the fist place.

Why Medical School Should Be Free - NYTimes.com
Fixing our health care system will be impossible without a larger pool of competent primary care doctors who can make sure specialists work together in the treatment of their patients — not in isolation, as they often do today — and keep track of patients as they move among settings like private residences, hospitals and nursing homes. Moreover, our population is growing and aging; the American Academy of Family Physicians has estimated a shortfall of 40,000 primary care doctors by 2020. Given the years it takes to train a doctor, we need to start now.
Making medical school free would relieve doctors of the burden of student debt and gradually shift the work force away from specialties and toward primary care. It would also attract college graduates who are discouraged from going to medical school by the costly tuition.

Why Aren’t Banks Lending? They Are Being Rational | The Big Picture
Lending money is a risky business; there is the possibility of loss. Under-capitalized banks cannot take that chance. By not lending, their capital base goes up. IT is the rational thing to do from their perspective.
Rather than engage in traditional money lending, these banks have decided to simply borrow from the Fed at 0%, and make risk free loans to the Treasury at 3%.

.... 1 point to austrians because govnt debt is on the verge of failure
.... -1 for keynes bc it gave to wrong impression

to be continued 2010.

Why? They need to rebuild their capital levels after 30 years of declining safeguards and capital ratios.

This is yet another unintended consequence of bailing reckless bankers from their folly. Theior oplace in the economy is so distorted, as to become nearly economically meaningless . . .
