Hello! This week, Farhad Manjoo (New York Times) and Jay Yarow (Business Insider) are joined by special guest Jodi Kantor (New York Times) to discuss her polarizing article about Amazon's culture. // // how technology functions in the workplace - efficiency, quantified self << the feedback tool you can always use, what ever your state of emotion, gripe, stick, bias, prejudice, ... feudal Darwinism creeps into knowledge worker, white-collar and blue-collar workers, MBA's and PhD's. [...] contributes to gender inequality (women with the back on their wall, leave or get started and forget about family & kids, life.) [...] brutal years are NOT Tour of Duty - Reid Hoffman The Alliance. // PS: Reed Hastings (Netflix) Culture document transpires that it is expected to contribute, even if it doesn't spell it out.

Michael Kinsley’s review of Glenn Greenwald’s book is the worst thing The NYT Book Review has ever run | PandoDaily
>> NYT probably got some hints from Washington, what tone that book review should have. ...."The Greater Good. It’s why cop cars break the speed limit when responding to robberies. It’s why Rosa Parks, arrested for violating the long-standing rules and customs of the Montgomery transit system, is nevertheless a hero. She chose the laws she liked and ignored the ones she didn’t. And she was right." .... HISTORY WILL BE MY JUDGE.

How the world paid the hidden cost of America's quantitative easing | Business | The Guardian
local policy is leaking in a global economy. not deniable.

investor cash looking for a high return.The chase for yield – the need to hold assets with a low value relative to the return – is nothing new. However, the billions of pounds spent by central banks on their own government's bonds released a tidal wave of cash that needed to find a home. Booming commodity markets were an unwanted side-effect of boosting investor confidence in stock and bond markets, which had threatened to spiral downwards when the recession hit.

Adam Posen, an external member of the Bank of England's monetary policy committee, repeated his warning earlier in the week that Britain needed another dose of QE to keep asset prices from sliding and stop confidence in the economy ebbing away. In the face of government austerity cuts, which will strip more than £12bn out of the economy this year in rising VAT bills alone, he said an extra £50bn in QE was the bare minimum needed.

A Never-Ending Economic Crisis?
In 2008, the global economy experienced a brutal financial retraction not seen since the 1930s. The value of virtually every asset in the world was reappraised downward, led by housing in the United States. The situation was like an unstoppable force of nature. In response, most of the world’s central banks, including the Federal Reserve in the United States, slashed short-term interest rates to near zero percent and flooded the financial system with liquidity. World governments produced fiscal-stimulus packages of mind-boggling size. Global governments spent an astonishing $17 trillion to support the world economy in the form of bailouts, guarantees, and stimulus packages. To put this number in perspective, $17 trillion represents one quarter of global GDP. Aggregate government budget deficits jumped by 737 percent over the previous year.
