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. [...] disdain [...] [...] Republicans (Establishment) could not break out of and from the past. Could not make advances against Donald Trump. [...]

What is the outlook for Britain's steel industry? - BBC News
UK steelmakers want lower business rates, a relaxation of emissions targets for heavy manufacturers, more compensation for high energy prices and a commitment that British steel is used in major construction projects. "We've set out some of the things government can press ahead with now to send out a clear signal of support in the very short term," said Gareth Stace, director of UK Steel. [...] How does the government act without going against its free market principles and breaking EU rules? It has already provided steel makers with millions of pounds in compensation for carbon permit costs. Beyond that it says its hands are tied by strict European Union state-aid rules. [ << targeted welfare vs lower energy prices and a smart grid for all ] //&! bbc.in/1GhJaoH - Unions want the government to take "urgent short-term action" to support the industry. [...] the steel industry globally was facing one of the most difficult times in its history. [...] we can't change the price of steel.

Robots are coming for your job. That might not be bad news
The problem with automation isn’t technology. The problem is capitalism. // [ Deflationary pressure, 3bn people in developing world and frontier markets unemployed, waiting to join workforce. ] [ who buys the gadgets and widgets when half the world is unemployed ] // This time, as Martin Ford argues in Rise of The Robots, education and upscaling won’t help us. There will simply be fewer jobs to go around, as everything from accountancy to journalism will be done faster, cheaper and more efficiently by machines. The result, as Jerry Kaplan agrees in Humans Need Not Apply, is that billions will be left destitute – unless we radically rethink our way of keeping people fed.

eBay Shrugged: Pierre Omidyar believes there should be no philanthropy without profit | PandoDaily
Pierre Omidyar. The role of Omidyar Network in so many major events of the past week — helping elect India’s ultranationalist leader Narendra Modi; co-funding Ukraine regime-change NGOs with USAID, resulting in a deadly civil war and Monday’s election of Ukrainian billionaire oligarch Petro Poroshenko; and now, this week’s first-ever sit-down TV interview with Edward Snowden, through an arrangement between NBC News and Pierre Omidyar’s First Look Media — shows how these contradictions are coming to the fore, and shaping our world. [...] Muhammad Yunus failed to dissuade Omidyar: "Let them make money—but why do you want to make money off the poor people?” [...] “Omidyar views the fund as a way of testing his theories about commercializing the sector. ‘It’s really the demonstration impact I’m looking for, primarily,’ he said.” << Billionaires Playground. Rarefied People.
