Austerity Now: Brazil's Downgrade and Reckoning - Bloomberg View
Brazil faces its deepest recession in 25 years, policy drift and now a reputation deficit that threaten to undo years of prosperity and social gains. [...] even years on, with the economy set to shrink by two percent this year, and unemployment and consumer debt spiking, Brazil looks more likely cast as the leader of submerging markets and the sick man of the BRICS, the club of outsize developing nations -- Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa -- once touted to lead world growth.

Japan Exports Its Way to Irrelevance - Bloomberg View
[ Politicians as always will react with reactionary unimaginative policy, competing for the same pie. instead of enabling, supporting new pies to be created. ] But Abe needs to recognize, as China already has, that this is only the latest sign of a broader reality: Asia's old export model of economic growth no longer works. [...] All the stimulus BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda can muster won't change the worsening trajectory of the region's most-populous nation. That's why Abe needs to take a page from Beijing and focus more on creating new industries at home. [ the base of home grown new market/category/vertical also includes sound middle class to buy those products. demand at home. social safety net (security). and less inequality. progressive taxation. fight tax evasion/avoidance, monopoles, monopsonies, bribery, corruption. and politicians making policy for lobby. ]

Empire of the geeks | The Economist
Silicon Valley should be celebrated. But its insularity risks a backlash [...] Critics are often from industries wanting to protect their privileges; the geeks’ aggressive behaviour is sometimes part of the creative destruction that leads to progress. But that is not the only source of anger. Silicon Valley also dominates markets, sucks out the value contained in personal data, and erects business models that make money partly by avoiding taxes. There is a risk that global consumers will feel exploited and that the effects of a shrinking tax base will infuriate voters. If the perception takes root that enormous profits from exploiting data and avoiding taxes are crystallised in the fortunes of a few people living on a patch of ground near San Francisco, then there will be a backlash." // recent emergence of marketplace for X and gig platform for X - 1099 Economy etc etc, making money with our data - Facebook.

Budget 2015: The return of Tina - BBC News
Tina, it would appear, is back. Forgotten Tina? The acronym for There Is No Alternative? Regularly cited by Margaret Thatcher? Thatcher? Oh, come on, it hasn't been that long since the Tories were in sole command of the UK. [ // history rhymes; Angela Merkel and her "Alternativlos." = There is No Alternative. ] George Osborne set out quite deliberately in a range of ways to suggest that there is no effective or realistic alternative to his approach. [...] It is aimed over their heads at the voters. Mr Osborne is seeking to suggest that there is a remorseless logic to his package, that only the ingrate or innumerate would oppose it.

BBC News - Uber banned in Germany by Frankfurt court
http://www.spiegel.de/wirtschaft/soziales/uber-und-airbnb-ethik-der-share-economy-a-988612.html "Dienste wie der Taxischreck Uber und der Bettenvermittler AirBnB stellen den Konsumenten vor schwierige ethische Abwägungen. Ist diese neue Kultur des Teilens jetzt gut - oder doch verwerflich? Vom Versuch, eine Haltung zu entwickeln. [...] Wenn Firmen andere Firmen mit besseren Produkten plattmachen, dann geht das schon in Ordnung. Wenn sie nur billiger als die Konkurrenz sind, weil sie auf Sicherheit und Hygiene pfeifen, dann ist das schon nicht mehr so sympathisch. Es erinnert vielmehr an Pferdefleischpanscherei und Hungerlohnfabriken in Kambodscha. [...] Die neuen Plattformen untergraben zudem das Arbeitsrecht. Wer über Dienste wie Uber und AirBnB seinen Lebensunterhalt bestreitet, dem droht eine prekäre Solo-Selbstständigkeit ohne Tariflohn, Arbeits- und Gesundheitsschutz. Reiner Hoffmann, der Chef des Deutschen Gewerkschaftsbunds, spricht von "moderner Sklaverei"." +!! bit.ly/1qxEsrt
