Neocons 2.0: The problem with Peter Pomerantsev | PandoDaily
if RT is propaganda, so is Fox News and privately funded Institutes. [ just look back 'tonken' 'WMDs' 'watergate' 'we don't spy on you, its only to hunt terrorists' ] // second observation - neoconservatism and neoliberalism seem to make a comfortable co-existence within the USA policy makers realm // or is it a symptom of opportunism from Career Politicians who don't represent, the Lobby of crony capitalism, and general short-termism that is capturing Capitol Hill as well? /// "Putin’s Russia is a harder place for vulture capitalists like the Chandlers and Browders to swoop in, extract a few quick hundred millions, and disappear with to Monaco or Dubai. Putin’s cronies don’t need them; they replaced them and pocketed the money for themselves. Therefore, Russia is a threat to western civilization." << Thus the lobbying efforts of propaganda and badmouthing. There is a motive, bc he's in the pockets of "global vulture capitalists." // A new Cold War. Cold War 2.0.

Solving the productivity puzzle - BBC News
UK productivity growth (as measured by output per hour worked) has been exceptionally weak since 2008. Productivity growth has actually been weak across the developed economies since the Great Recession but especially so in the UK. Beyond those facts though, there is little agreement. The talk is instead of a "productivity puzzle": solving that puzzle is the key to both a lower government deficit and to higher living standards. [...] [I]t could be that the nature of Britain's recovery explains the low productivity growth. Rather than lower productivity leading to lower real wages (as companies cannot afford to increase pay), it may be that lower real wages have encouraged firms to hire workers rather than investing in new equipment. This could have lowered productivity. [...] Much of it feels more traditionally "sociological" than "economic". // 2nd Industrial Revolution - Software is Eating the World, Self-Employment, contractors, Zero Hour Contracts, etc. &! bit.ly/1aRi7Bw
