‘The City’, by Tony Norfield - Banking as seen from the belly of the beast
[ current account deficit only affordable (thus also living standards) bc of City of London ] This is a man who writes without irony about “financial parasitism”. In The City: London and the Global Power of Finance, he seeks to document just how the UK and the US extract their pound of flesh from the rest of the world by dominating the financial flows that make international trade possible.

He argues that London’s leading role in foreign exchange trading, derivatives and overseas lending is an extension of its imperialist past. Creating complex financial products and charging for them has enabled the sector to requisition for the UK and London — and, of course, bankers themselves — a disproportionate share of the benefits of global trade. [...] [ extracting value from around the world channelling it back ] &! Novara Media interview - bit.ly/297c6D3

NSA und GCHQ spähen Anti-Viren-Hersteller wie Kaspersky aus - SPIEGEL ONLINE
[ Washington, even Obama doesn't know about the true extent. NSA, Five Eyes, for profit military and intelligence complex is an entity that is OVER Washington. Because telling Washington would be a National Security risk. ] Frisch veröffentlichte Snowden-Unterlagen zeigen, wie der amerikanische und der britische Geheimdienst gezielt Anti-Viren-Software austricksen und deren Hersteller ausforschen. In den Dokumenten taucht auch ein deutscher Anbieter auf. [...] Der britische Geheimdienst GCHQ und die amerikanische NSA haben gezielt Anti-Viren-Hersteller ausspioniert. Ziel war es offenbar, Wege zu finden, die Virenschutzprogramme auszutricksen: Die Schadsoftware der Geheimdienste sollte von den Programmen unentdeckt bleiben.

NSA-Spionage in Frankreich: Regierung und Wirtschaft erschüttert - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Jetzt erlebt auch Frankreich, was es heißt, vom Freund ausspioniert zu werden: Der US-Geheimdienst NSA hat den Élysée abgehört. Das Selbstverständnis der Grande Nation als Partner der USA ist erschüttert, die Reaktionen sind furios. // &! "Keine Substanz": Die von WikiLeaks enthüllten NSA-Papiere zeigen, dass sich Frankreichs Präsident 2012 intern heftig über Kanzlerin Merkel beschwerte. [...] Die Kanzlerin kommt dabei nicht sonderlich gut weg. Thema des Gesprächs, so schildern es die US-Geheimdienstler in einer Depesche, sei die Eurokrise gewesen. Hollande, so heißt es im NSA-Papier, habe sich intern darüber beschwert, das Treffen habe "keine Substanz" gehabt: "Es war reine Show." - http://www.spiegel.de/politik/deutschland/nsa-spionage-gegen-frankreich-hollande-laesterte-ueber-merkel-a-1040392.html &!

DECLINE of EMPIRES: The Signs of Decay - YouTube
Chalmers Johnson, author of Blowback, Sorrows of Empire and Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic , talks about the similarities in the decline of the Roman and Soviet empires and the signs that the U.S. empire is exhibiting the same symptoms: overextension, corruption and the inability to reform [ in face of global change and internal ideology.] - min 15 + fiscal overstretch that does not serve people (economic multiplier, ie NSA, military bases, personnel, and long-term obligations ie pension and benefits) ... and unable to change bc of ideology married with identity (the American Dream is still alive and this country is fair and meritocratic) as well unable to keep up with global economic competition as a whole (take out Silicon Valley). & unable to smell crony capitalism (no shared economic interest), corruption and bribery when its showing up (ie TTIP, NAFTA and co.) &!

John Oliver Edward Snowden Interview - YouTube
language shapes thoughts. how you communicate and on what level. US elected official talk is always about "keeping America and Americans, safe." what % of baby boomers or millennial do knows what meda data, profiling, and big data is or do or how it can be leveraged. they know what a selfie and a selfie stick is. That's why Career Politicians and Lobby organisations hire PR people. CORPORATE (Wall Street) PR PEOPLE!!! Talking 5 minutes to the nation and saying nothing at all of concrete notion, IS CORPORATE PR SPEAK. Setting the tone for the public discourse, its sort of art and honed down to a science. // &!
