FLUCTUATIONS IN ECONOMIC ACTIVITY: ONLY ONE CAUSE
The financial crisis of 2006/7 turned into a recession prolonged by a failure to manage monetary demand efficiently to achieve target inflation. With the failure of Lehman Bros interbank markets froze and banks stopped commercial lending. Since then a mixture of quantitative easing and distortingly low interest rates has only managed to create the illusion of a boom as bubbles have developed in property and other asset prices.

Malala Yousafzai & Kylie Jenner. Both turned 18 recently. One was given a Ferrari and spent thousands on facial modification. The other was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize, survived a gun shot to the face by the Taliban due to corruption in her country, and opened a school for Syrian refugees to combat the lack of education for youth around the world. What's upsetting is the media is only covering one of these stories as "breaking news." Share the post to spread real love and inspiration across the youth of the world. Last thing to note, Malala is infinitely more beautiful! **re-posted // hard things are hard for a reason! // what happens to the cognitive surplus what everyone talked about at the turn of the century? its being eaten by consumption pattern - on the mobile homescreen (Entertainment, utility, Gaming, Escapeism, snacking).

In Defense of Fiber: How Changing Your Diet Changes Your Gut Bacteria | TIME
Here’s why fiber is so important to intestinal flora: gut your microbes feed on it and produce short-chain fatty acids, which get absorbed into the bloodstream and regulate the immune system and attenuate inflammation, Sonnenburg says. “That means if you’re not eating dietary fiber, your immune system may be existing in kind of a simmering pro-inflammatory state,” he says—the very state that predisposes us to different Western diseases. “Our diet and deteriorated microbiota are really a major piece of the puzzle in trying to understand why Western diseases are rising like crazy.”

Was treibt die Menschen zu Pegida? | rbb Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg
Protestforscher Prof. Dieter Rucht im Interview - Was treibt die Menschen zu Pegida? Prof. Dieter Rucht arbeitet im Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin und erforscht seit Jahren soziale Bewegungen und politische Protestformen. In den vergangenen Wochen hat er Pegida-Anhänger befragt und die Demonstrationen in Dresden beobachtet. Ressentiments gegenüber Fremden und den Schwierigkeiten demokratischer Willensbildung, die auch sozialisationsbedingt sind, sieht er als Ursachen des Zuspruchs für Pegida.

BBC News - Exercise advice unrealistic, say experts
[habit forming via small dosages increasing, making it a process, a path] - Researchers say current exercise guidelines are unrealistic and argue that doctors should sometimes advise small increases in activity instead. They warn the 150-minute weekly target is beyond the reach of some people - particularly older individuals. And striving to reach these goals could mean the benefits of lighter exercise are overlooked. But public health officials say current recommendations have proven benefits in lowering the risk of heart disease.

OECD moniert wachsende Ungleichheit zwischen Arm und Reich - SPIEGEL ONLINE
[ The Economic case for better equality ] - Die Ungleichheit in Deutschland hat sich laut OECD deutlich verschlimmert - und den Aufschwung gebremst. Eine gerechtere Sozialpolitik hätte demnach bis zu sechs Prozentpunkte mehr Wachstum möglich gemacht. [... ] Die OECD fordert die Politik zum Gegensteuern auf. "Unsere Analyse zeigt, dass wir nur auf starkes und dauerhaftes Wachstum zählen können, wenn wir der hohen und weiter steigenden Ungleichheit etwas entgegensetzen", sagte Generalsekretär Angel Gurria. "Der Kampf gegen Ungleichheit muss in das Zentrum der politischen Debatte rücken." [...] Eine Umverteilung von oben nach unten mittels Steuern und Transfers sei nicht zwangsläufig wachstumsschädlich, solange entsprechende Maßnahmen zielgenau angewandt werden, schreibt die Industrieorganisation. Eine solche Verteilungspolitik müsse sich vor allem auf Familien mit Kindern sowie auf junge Menschen konzentrieren und deren Lernchancen verbessern.

Chinesischer Dissident geht mit Zuckerberg ins Gericht - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Mark Zuckerberg hatte Xis Buch auf seinem Schreibtisch liegen, als bei ihm kürzlich Chinas Chefzensor zu Besuch kam. Demonstrativ, könnte man vielleicht sagen. Die staatliche Nachrichtenwebsite "The Paper" berichtete später, Zuckerberg habe erklärt: "Ich habe dieses Buch auch meinen Kollegen gekauft." Er wolle, dass diese "den Sozialismus chinesischer Art verstehen". Sowohl Schmidt als auch Zuckerberg haben für ihr Bekenntnis zu dem Buch, das Reden und Aufsätze des chinesischen Staatschefs versammelt, einige Kritik einstecken müssen. Bei Zuckerberg kam die nicht zuletzt von chinesischen Dissidenten und Regimekritikern. // http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/china/11279309/Mark-Zuckerberg-accused-of-kowtowing-to-China-for-handing-out-copies-of-Xi-Jinpings-speeches.html // Amnesty International hatte erst im November erklärt, Chinas Internetmodell sei "eines von extremer Kontrolle und Unterdrückung".

Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission &! “The last vote,” he said, referring to the November elections, “was the lowest turnout since 1940, in the middle of [World War II], when people couldn’t vote.” “Why? Because people understand what is shown in academic political science — that their voices just don’t matter. The opinions of the lowest 70 percent of the population — the lowest on the income scale — are simply disregarded.”

BBC News - 'Colossal' spending cuts to come, warns IFS
Current Austerity focus is running UK economy into the ground. Not towards the futures. Yes to cut waste. Yes to trim here and there. But there is no sight of investment into the future; ie pushing apprenticeships and industrial (STEM, research) practical skill set (dual college & university courses modelled after Germany), living wage, reduction on reliance on service sector and consumption. There is no inspiration. No future in his head. Just managing the status quo. Moving the pieces. Just like any other career politician. &! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-30318870

Autumn Statement 2014: Osborne's Cuts 'Will See Public Spending Fall To Lowest Level In 80 Years'
Tony Dolphin, senior economist at the Institute for Public Policy and Research, warned that Osborne's planned cuts were "implausible". "Given the scale of cuts in the public sector, [the OBR] can only make its growth forecast add up by assuming that consumer demand is boosted by households taking on more debt - and at an unprecedented pace. "Extraordinarily, the OBR thinks that by 2019 the household sector will have a financial deficit twice as big as in 2007 and 2008 when the financial crisis hit. As result, the household debt-to-income ratio is forecast 2 rise beyond its pre-crisis peak 2 over 180%. "This is pretty implausible. If the next government tries 2 follow the deficit reduction path set out in the Autumn Statement, it can only succeed in the short-term because the household sector takes on debt @ a faster pace than it did before the financial crisis. [this warning was heeded some years ago alrdy that consumer&corp would have to take on debt to spend to keep GDP # up!!!]

Robert Chote, chairman of the Office 4 Budget Responsibility, predicts a "very sharp squeeze" as only 40% of cuts deemed 2 be necessary have been made in the current parliament while the next is required 2 account for the remaining 60%.

How Much Does It Cost to Be Ambassador to Hungary? - Bloomberg View
n.pr/1AfA3NV &! The corruption here is multilayered. There is the corruption of governance and diplomacy, in which ambassadorships are sold to the highest bidder. And then there is a more subtle form of corruption, in which the people’s representatives are made to feel as if they must provide cover for the corrupt practices of the executive branch. Strangely enough, another of the Obama administration’s nominees for a crucially important ambassadorship, Max Baucus, the former Montana senator, provided a roadmap for truthfulness in the nominations process. Baucus, chosen to represent U.S. interests in Beijing, said, at his own confirmation hearing, “I’m no real expert on China.” He was confirmed by the Senate anyway. &! Google - Klüngel-Republik &!

Als das Merkelfone einen konkreten Spionagefall aufdeckte hieß es, man habe sich bisher nicht mit Überwachung durch unsere Freunde beschäftigt. Das konnt eman damals bestenfalls als total naiv bezeichnen oder es entsprach nicht der Wahrheit. Heute berichtet der Spiegel von einem BND-Protokoll, das bereits Anfang 2005 darüber aufklärte, dass auch befreundete und verbündete Nationen uns überwachen [...] Man geht jetzt mit Strafanzeige gegen Whistleblower aus dem eigenen Haus vor, um diejenigen einzuschüchtern und mit Sicherheitsbehörden zu verfolgen, die dazu beitragen, Licht ins Dunkel zu bringen und über diese Vernebelungsaktionen aufzuklären: Regierung plant Strafanzeige gegen unbekannt.

BBC News - Millennials, not Mumsnet: Younger women and the 2015 election
Radio One DJ Gemma Cairney, 29, said that for many of her generation, politics was a "complete other world", which many could not even get up the energy to feel let down by. Many were in debt - which created a whole new reason not to register to vote. "They are afraid to register because that means the bailiffs know where they live," she said. But what can politicians do to appeal to "millennial" voters? [...] Sexism in the male-dominated corridors of power was highlighted by columnist Ms Gordon. She said she had once been called a "slut" to her face by an MP who went on to become a minister. "You have to sweep that culture out," she said - and using quotas to get more women into Parliament was one way to do it. [...] About 22% of MPs are women - "20% of us is not enough", she said. "I think it's quite damaging for democracy."

So concludes a recent study by Princeton University Prof Martin Gilens and Northwestern University Prof Benjamin I Page. This is not news, you say. Perhaps, but the two professors have conducted exhaustive research to try to present data-driven support for this conclusion. Here's how they explain it: Multivariate analysis indicates that economic elites and organised groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little or no independent influence.

UN officials 'shocked' by Detroit’s mass water shutoffs | Al Jazeera America
"“Disconnection of water services because of failure to pay due to lack of means constitutes a violation of the human right to water and other international human rights,” U.N. officials de Albuquerque and Farha wrote in advance of their arrival." [...] for example, the agency spent $537 million that had been earmarked for repairs paying off interest-rate swaps to major banks." --- A United Nations special rapporteur on the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation visited Detroit over the weekend, where thousands of city residents have been left without water because they can't afford to pay water bills (prices have skyrocketed to twice the national average). She was "shocked" by the way the shut off is "affecting the weakest, the poorest and the most vulnerable.” - via https://www.facebook.com/moyersandcompany/posts/888065581211454 & http://america.aljazeera.com/opinions/2014/6/detroit-public-watershutoffsunitednationsprivatization.html

Latest TPP Leak Reveals Even Harsher Copyright Rules - Forbes
The US is also calling for criminal sanctions for copyright infringement, even where the infringement isn’t being carried out for commercial reasons. “If the US gets its way, then criminal penalties will apply even against users who were not seeking financial gain from sharing or making available copyrighted works, such as fans and archivists,” write Jeremy Malcolm and Maira Sutton of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). “Such a broad definition is ripe for abuse.” Indeed, a similar provision in a free trade agreement between Columbia and the US led to copyright laws that saw a Columbian graduate student arrested for posting another student’s academic paper online without permission.

Jaron Lanier mit Friedenspreis des Deutschen Buchhandels ausgezeichnet - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Die Umsonstkultur ist eine Täuschung, irgendjemand zahlt immer" [...] Lanier weise eindringlich "auf die Gefahren hin, die unserer offenen Gesellschaft drohen, wenn ihr die Macht der Gestaltung entzogen wird", heißt es in der Begründung des Stiftungsrats. Sein jüngstes Buch "Wem gehört die Zukunft" werde zu einem Appell, wachsam gegenüber Unfreiheit, Missbrauch und Überwachung zu sein. [...] Lanier kritisiert das Geschäftsmodell von Internetunternehmen wie Google und Facebook, die massenhaft persönliche Daten von Internetnutzern sammeln und die damit verbundene Reichweite für Werbung nutzen. Der Reichtum werde so in den Händen einiger weniger Unternehmer konzentriert, fürchtet Lanier, während die breite Mitte der Gesellschaft leer ausgeht. "Wir brauchen eine neue Art von Balance", sagte Lanier in Frankfurt.

Ilija Trojanow: Über den überwachten Menschen und das widerständige Wort - Literatur - derStandard.at › Kultur
Die Existenz der Massenüberwachung wird nicht mehr bestritten, wie noch vor wenigen Jahren, als nicht wenige Kritiker des Buches Angriff auf die Freiheit. Sicherheitswahn, Überwachungsstaat und der Abbau bürgerlicher Rechte von meiner Koautorin Juli Zeh und mir Übertreibung und Hysterie vorwarfen. Wir wissen, dass die NSA zwischen drei und vier Milliarden Menschen überwacht, nämlich alle digitalen Bürger und Bürgerinnen des Planeten. [...] Wir wissen, dass wir dieser Überwachung (fast) nicht entgehen können, auch nicht durch Verschlüsselung unserer Kommunikation, denn bei allen marktüblichen Programmen ist eine kleine Hintertür offen gelassen, durch die Geheimdienste hineinschlüpfen können, [...] Die demokratische Verfasstheit ist weder in Stein gemeißelt noch genetisch einprogrammiert. [...] behördlicher Vertuschung: "nationale Sicherheit" [...] demokratischen Gesellschaft angreift.

US Spy Programs May Break the Internet if Not Reformed, Google Leader Says | WIRED
Until the US recognizes and restores the fundamental right of ownership you have in your data, he continued, the U.S. cannot hope to rebuild trust lost through the NSA’s widespread surveillance programs. This stance flies in the face of what we expect from internet companies these days, many of whom tend to act as if they own the content we create. [...] COMPANIES HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO TAKE THE STEPS THAT APPLE AND OTHERS WERE TAKING TO STRENGTHEN THE SECURITY OF CUSTOMER DATA, AND THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD GET USED TO IT.

Desertec: Wüstenstrom-Projekt DII für Erneuerbare Energie vor dem Aus - SPIEGEL ONLINE
.... Europe has to step in. Capitalism sees no need to put that money now in long-term when profit margin sinks over the long-term as energy prices may sink over the long-term because energy (renewable energy) becomes commodity ... cheaper. with marginal revenue/profit. thus making it impossible to turn 15-20% ROI over the long-term.

Eikonal: Der kalkulierte Grundrechtsbruch der Bundesregierung – Wie der BND der NSA Zugang zum Internetknoten DE-CIX schenkte | netzpolitik.org
Das gemeinsame Rechercheteam von NDR, WDR und Süddeutsche Zeitung berichtet heute über “Codewort Eikonal – der Albtraum der Bundesregierung“. Nachdem bereits im Sommer Details über die DeCIX-Überwachung durch den Bundesnachrichtendienst offengelegt wurde, zeigen jetzt neue Akten des Kanzleramts und des BND, wie genau die Zusammenarbeit zwischen BND und NSA zwischen 2004 und 2008 funktionierte. In Frankfurt wurden die Daten von Filtern erfasst und über eine Leitung der Deutschen Telekom (für 6000 Euro im Monat) zum BND-Hauptquartier nach Pullach geschickt und von dort weiter nach Bad Aibling, wo NSA und BND zusammen sitzen (aber offen darüber nicht gesprochen werden darf). [...] 2005 fiel dann beim Bundesnahrichtendienst auf, dass die freundlichen Geheimdienstler von der NSA nebenan in den Daten auch nach französischen Behörden und dem europäischen Rüstungskonzern EADS suchten,

BBC News - Hong Kong: Protesters defiant amid stand-off
Thousands of protesters have taken over central areas of Hong Kong and are camped outside government offices - many schools and banks are closed. Protesters are angry at changes to Hong Kong's political system which will allow direct elections but only from a pool of candidates approved by Beijing. A student-led protest movement has joined forces with the larger Occupy Central after a week of demonstrations and class boycotts. On Sunday night police used tear gas and pepper spray on the crowds. The government says riot police have now withdrawn, and has ordered protesters to disperse peacefully as soon as possible. + http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2014/09/29/352467064/whats-at-stake-for-hong-kong + http://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/hongkong-die-regenschirm-revolution-a-994453.html + http://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/hongkong-china-fuerchtet-den-grossen-aufstand-a-994365.html + youtu.be/MJmWd5alvnE + youtu.be/D3f3IsWPKH8 + bbc.in/ZnaHB0 + ! youtu.be/2D3LltOxVlA

Alex Salmond accuses UK party leaders of tricking Scotland into No vote | Politics | theguardian.com
"They're at loggerheads," Salmond told BBC1's Sunday Politics programme. "I think that their vow was cooked up in desperation from the last days of the campaign. I think everyone in Scotland now realises that. "Incidentally, [the] Yes campaign isn't surprised by this development. It's the people who were persuaded to vote no who were misled, who were gulled, who were tricked, effectively. They are the ones who are really angry." [...] Downing Street has dismissed Salmond's accusations, insisting the Scottish devolution timetable would be honoured. "Lord Smith of Kelvin has agreed to oversee the process to take forward the devolution commitments with powers over tax, spending and welfare all agreed by November and draft legislation published by January," a No 10 spokesman said. "This government has delivered on devolution and we will do so again." +!+!+!+ Salmond - bbc.in/1sU03so +!+!+!+ Ed Miliband - bbc.in/1AYZqCb +!+!+!+ Salmon on unelected House of Lords - bit.ly/1p9g8t3

Cameron and Miliband ditch devo timetable vow
via bit.ly/1rbwEvV || "Salmond revealed that in his telephone call to Mr Cameron after the referendum result was announced, he asked the Prime Minister if the UK Government would honour the pledge made to the Scottish people by Gordon Brown prior to the vote.  Something Mr Salmond said, was not confirmed by the PM. He said: "I spoke to the Prime Minister today and, although he reiterated his intention to proceed as he has outlined, he would not commit to a second reading vote by 27th March on a Scotland Bill. That was a clear promise laid out by Gordon Brown during the campaign. "The Prime Minister says such a vote would be meaningless. I suspect he cannot guarantee the support of his party." [...] The refusal to commit to new powers for Scotland prior to the next UK general election is in breach of the 'vow' made to the Scottish people days before the independence referendum. [...] Gordon Brown was said to have 'brokered a deal' with all three London parties."

Fairness: Warum der Mensch Gerechtigkeit will - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Das Gute in uns. Der Ökonom Ernst Fehr von der Universität Zürich führt seit einigen Jahren einen Kampf für die Anerkennung des Guten im Menschen. Vertrauen, Gerechtigkeitssinn und Mitgefühl sind in den Augen des Experimentalökonomen wichtige Bedingungen für Wohlstand und wirtschaftlichen Erfolg. So seien Menschen in Spielexperimenten bereit, eine Geldsumme mit einer anderen Person zu teilen, obwohl sie das eigentlich nicht machen müssten. Schwieriger allerdings werde es, wenn man eine Vierergruppe von Menschen anonym auffordert, Geld für eine Gemeinschaftsaufgabe zu geben - und ihnen die Möglichkeit lässt, nichts zu zahlen, aber trotzdem von dem Geld zu profitieren, das andere einzahlen. Ein Beispiel für ein solches Verhalten sind beispielsweise die Schwarzfahrer in der U-Bahn. So stellte Fehr fest: Schmarotzer gibt es leider immer. Vor allem, wenn die Experimente in Ländern gemacht werden, in denen Misswirtschaft und Korruption herrschen.

Economists can't tell Scots how to vote : Scotland
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-29219837?postId=120344769#comment_120344769 +++ The problem is short term vs long term. Long term, Scotland could be a wealthy social-democratic nation along the Nordic model and better off than it would have been as part of the UK (assuming of course on the wisdom of politicians and business leaders). Short term, there will be a period of disruption - negotiations with rUK, budget, currency, EU membership etc. This will result in some economic hardship, unemployment, cuts and so on. How much? Who knows? How short is short term? Maybe 2-5 years. The question is whether the long term gains are worth the short term pain. This also explains why, non-economic reasons aside, older voters are less likely to vote Yes - because they have more to lose from the short term pain than gain long term. +++ !!! http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/scottish-independence-commerzbank-says-worst-case-economic-scenarios-exaggerated-9733904.html

Video-Kommentar zur AfD: Partei der Protestalgie - http://www.spiegel.de/video/afd-bei-wahlen-in-thueringen-und-brandenburg-kommentar-nikolaus-blome-video-1521747.html +++ Protest + Nostalgie + Ostalgie = Protestalgie! +++ Landtagswahlen im Osten: Frust hat entschieden - Die AfD hat ihren Triumph in Thüringen und Brandenburg den Enttäuschten zu verdanken. Immerhin sind sie überhaupt noch wählen gegangen - das ist keine Selbstverständlichkeit mehr. Aus Befragungen der Meinungsforscher von Infratest dimap für die ARD wird der große Frust deutlich, so sagt in beiden Bundesländern eine Mehrheit der Nichtwähler, Politiker verfolgten ohnehin nur ihre eigenen Interessen. Zudem gebe es zwar viele Parteien, aber keine verändere etwas. - http://www.spiegel.de/politik/deutschland/thueringen-und-brandenburg-nichtwaehler-frust-und-afd-protestwaehler-a-991648.html +++ DE wird mehr erzkonservativ und weniger gesellschaftspolitisch Liberal - bit.ly/1qZLQ0x << weniger Weltoffen, weniger Leadership.

A hilariously sad tale of gender bias — Medium
via https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8290067 - Title should probably be changed from "We Don't Just Need More Women in Tech, We Need Fewer Assholes" to "A hilariously sad tale of gender bias." +++ +++ +++ http://www.reddit.com/r/FemmeThoughts/comments/2ghpwu/the_astonishing_maleness_and_whiteness_of_silicon/ "The astonishing maleness and whiteness of Silicon Valley’s tech workers (newyorker.com)" +++ +++ +++ !!! >>> This article really resonated with me; it addresses a lot of what's wrong with the hiring process in tech, and why it generally favors hiring more of the same.
