Health tourism charges come into force in England - BBC News
immigrants made scapegoats again. outright health tourism is drop in bucket compared to NHS budget. even compared to type2 diabetes. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-38065810 - max 500m per year. sorry but diabetes treatment costs are 10bn alone and rising.

The politics of anger | The Economist
When Margaret Thatcher was prime minister, amid the triumph of Soviet collapse, an aide slipped Mr Fukuyama’s essay on history into her papers. The next morning she declared herself unimpressed. Never take history for granted, she said. Never let up. For liberals today that must be the rallying cry. //&! https://soundcloud.com/theeconomist/tasting-menu-audio-highlights-from-the-july-2nd-2016-edition //&! https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/the-politics-of-anger-by-dani-rodrik-2016-03?barrier=true - History never quite repeats itself, but its lessons are important nonetheless.

Mark Blyth explains the U.K.'s decision to leave the E.U. - YouTube
Yanis Varoufakis & Mark Blyth - https://youtu.be/iMk6aVsl8Rs - Scotland (joining the EU) will not have a welfare state as long as Wolfgang Schaeuble is at the helm), Secular Stagnation = feels like permanent recession. especially w austerity. squeezed middle class, working poor, Precariat. [...] the only thing that is keeping things alive and somewhat steady is monetary policy (ZIRP, NIRP, QE) & triple-lock pensions (ie in UK). [...] Status Quo is extend and pretend (ie in EU) [...] Centrists lost the plot, all under 50% of vote share. some places just 25% (ie Tories 2015). [...] [min 20 #Brexit] [...] EU and ASIA running trade surplus against the world. "be more competitive" = exporting deflation. is not same as productivity. [...] Q&A session: you can not reform a country (structural reforms) under dark cloud of debt deflation. no shared dream of prosperity. //&! youtu.be/md6_WfF9Ky0?t=22m
