Jonah Goldberg on Donald Trump's Candidacy, Liberalism, and Conservatism - YouTube
Centrists - Over promised and under delivered. thus feeling of no representation etc. and feeling of betrayal [...] can't discount the economics of the last decades. [...] Brexit is illuminating. [...] 1% look down on "make america great again" as nostalgia [...] see themselves better than the rest.

the source of legitimacy is economics and only one source/type of economic thinking // TTIP & Co erase governments! // globalisation hailed promises, empty promises. // the more they say its inevitable, the more you know its the way out. // bailout for one side of society, and austerity for the others // no shared economic interest !!! rootless tax evaders global corporations are not stakeholders in country X // where does the power go? decision and policy making? to those with money and influence and network! - thus not the citizens // "we are in a post-globalist world" really? why is there then TTIP? Austerity is currently taking over the vacuum! // neoliberalism pouted and propagandated by fear induced monologues by Career Politicians (GFC) // money has no moral limits nor conscience !!! // great moderation and unfettered globalisation & financial realm (masters of the universe) - Alan Greenspan & Ben Bernanke >> extremes (ideology) break down (GFC) // austerity doesn't work!

Of Wealth and (Un)Happiness -
According to Carol Graham of Brookings, author of “The Paradox of Happy Peasants and Miserable Millionaires,” there is no shortage of what she calls “frustrated achievers.” Stewart Wallis of the New Economics Foundation in Britain, said that the key to well-being is not just wealth but “flourishing and feeling valued.”
Jeffrey Sachs of Columbia University said America’s economic system had corrupted the soul of the country by engineering excess: over-eating, excessive television-watching and material consumption now dominated the lives of millions of Americans. “We designed a kind of society that is designed for addiction,” he said.
“We’re mean. Our politics is mean,” to the rest of the world and to America’s own poor, he said. “We’re an unhappy society amid wealth.”

Rede in Davos: Super-Sarko rttelt die Weltelite auf - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten - Wirtschaft
Für 2011 skizzierte Sarkozy drei große Risiken:
Staatsverschuldung: "Wir müssen die Defizite reduzieren. Die Welt kann nicht immer weitere Schuldenberge aufhäufen."Globale finanzielle Ungleichgewichte: Das internationale Finanzsystem sei noch auf dem Stand von Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts. Außerdem gebe es seit den siebziger Jahren kein funktionierendes Weltwährungssystem mehr. "Ist das gut? Nein! Ist das ein Risiko? Ja!"Inflation: Die hohen Rohstoffpreise machten die Welt gefährlicher. Es sei in niemandes Interesse, wenn es in Ländern Aufstände gebe, weil die Menschen hungerten. Außerdem sei die hohe Schwankung der Rohstoffpreise ein riesiges Problem. Der Ölpreis ist in der Finanzkrise binnen weniger Monate von 140 auf 40 Dollar abgestürzt. Derzeit liegt er wieder bei rund 100 Dollar.

Davos: A lesson from History – Telegraph Blogs
Yes, plenty of mistakes have been made, and are still being made. This may not have been scientific progress in the strict sense that the advent of antibiotics were; but it is a lesson that although we are often doomed to catch the same diseases as our predecessors, we are not consigned to the same treatment.

The pessimists, on the other hand, might point out that we still aren’t out of the woods yet. But since when has Davos been about pessimism?

Davos Forum Ends With No Consensus On How To Improve The Economy Or Prevent Another Crisis
Deutsche Bank chief Executive Josef Ackermann told an AP-sponsored closing panel that the worst of the financial and economic crisis had been managed "quite successfully" but decision-makers now had a tough choice: "Should we take more risk, be a creative force for growth, or should we focus on security?"
Peter Sands, the CEO of Britain's Standard Chartered Bank, - right balance - struck "between making a safer banking system and a financial system that can support the sort of dynamism and growth in job creation."
"Get it wrong one way and we risk a new crisis; get it wrong the other way and we'll take the steam out of the recovery and reduce the chances of creating new jobs,"
French President Nicolas Sarkozy called for a return to ethics and morality in business and gave a broad riposte to free-market capitalism.
Muhammad Yunus, Grameen Bank, which pioneered microcredit, said in an AP interview that "this is a good time to redesign the entire financial system."
