Inequality driving 'deaths of despair' - BBC News
there is income inequality
there is health inequality (air)
there is political inequality, your voice only heard when you have money to donate and can pay lobbyists.
>> electoral reform (1), limit lobby influence and party donations (2), citizens assembly, devolution might have failed.

Widening inequalities in pay, health and opportunities in the UK are undermining trust in democracy, says an Institute for Fiscal Studies report. [...] The think tank warns of runaway incomes for high earners but rises in "deaths of despair", such as from addiction and suicide, among the poorest.

It warns of risks to "centre-ground" politics from stagnating pay and divides in health and education.

The report says such widening gaps are "making a mockery of democracy".

The Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), one of the country's leading research institutes, is launching what it says is the UK's biggest analysis of inequality.

That will be chaired by Nobel Prize-winning economist Prof Sir Angus Deaton.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Crusher of Sacred Cows – Rolling Stone
With its silly swipes at AOC, the American political establishment is once again revealing its blindness to its own unpopularity [...] The mortification on the Republican side has come more from media figures than actual elected officials. Still, there are plenty of people like Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) doing things like denouncing “this girl, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whatever she is” for preaching “socialism wrapped in ignorance.” A group of GOP House members booed her on the floor, to which she replied, “Don’t hate me cause you ain’t me, fellas.” [...] The latter issue, of course, is the real problem most of Washington has with “AOC”: her self-generated popularity and large social media presence means she doesn’t need to ask anyone’s permission to say anything. [...] She doesn’t have to run things by donors and she doesn’t need the assent of thinkfluencers like Cillizza or Max Boot (who similarly compared her to both Trump and Sarah Palin), because she almost certainly gains popularity every time one of those nitwits takes a swipe at her.

Top US student loans official resigns over 'open hostility' from White House | US news | The Guardian
“You have used the bureau to serve the wishes of the most powerful financial companies in America,” Frotman wrote, addressing his letter to Mulvaney. “The damage you have done to the bureau betrays these families and sacrifices the financial futures of millions of Americans in communities across the country.” [...] The student loan office is not alone. Under Mulvaney, the bureau has scaled back its enforcement work and has proposed revising or rescinding all of the rules and regulations it put into place under the Obama administration.

Until then, NHS England, the BMA and the Department of Health must make it a national priority to emphasise to patients that less medicine and healthier lifestyles are the most important solutions to sustaining the NHS. // statistics use in medical research and patient selection and reporting issue. absolute risk v % of all patients. // Such statistical and health illiteracy, far from being the exception, is actually the norm. The majority of healthcare professionals seem unable to understand medical literature. One study revealed 70% of those on a training programme failed a simple test on their understanding of evidence-based medicine.

More than 24,000 Scots hospitalised because of drinking
50p minimum price per one unit of alcohol, to come into effect March 2018, after years of legal fight against the alc lobby vested interest. (Sugar Tax, ) - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-42066394 - Minimum pricing has been broadly welcomed by health bodies and alcohol awareness groups, who say it will target the kind of drinking that leads to the greatest harm. //
People from the most deprived areas are nearly eight times more likely to need help, according to the NHS. There were 36,235 alcohol-related hospital admissions last year - the equivalent of more than 100 a day. They involved 24,060 individual patients - up from the 35,376 admissions involving 23,656 patients the previous year. Alcohol-related admissions had been falling for almost a decade but the latest figures show there were 685.2 hospital admissions per 100,000 people last year - an annual increase of almost 2%. //&! http://www.scotsman.com/news/politics/drink-related-hospital-stays-on-the-rise-1-4619230

Tax evaders exposed: why the super-rich are even richer than we thought | Inequality | The Guardian
The higher one moves up the wealth distribution, the higher the probability ​​of hiding​ assets [...] More broadly, the key to successfully fighting tax evasion is to change the incentives for the providers of wealth concealment services. Over the last few years, a number of banks have pleaded guilty in the US to criminal conspiracies to defraud the Internal Revenue Service – yet they were able to keep their banking licences, and the fines they had to pay paled in comparison to their profits. A more ambitious approach would put criminal organisations out of business. If tax evasion ceases to pay, it will disappear.

DNC adopted professional class, abandoned working class (left behind, picked up by Trump at the ballot box after Sanders was gone). [...] Dems wiped out! Now counting on Trump to screw it up. That is their strategy! [...] also the draining the swamp, no accountability in the big league game - see nassim talebs skin in the game. see bank bailouts nobody went to jail. sank economy, sank the world, the working poor and middle class have to pay for it. and 1-10% ask for tax cut and get it (trickle-down) ... Austerity. There is no deterrent from white and blue collar crime - financial crime, fraud, like accounting. GFC after-math is precedent, not deterrent from greed. //

Superbugs are on track to kill 10 million people by 2050 if things don’t change—fast
[under reported ] Today, 23,000 Americans die each year from infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Across the world, the estimated annual mortality rate is 700,000. If these trends continue, by 2050, 10 million people globally will die each year, as the potent diseases of previous centuries return to their old force, according to the Review on Antimicrobial Resistance. In 2012, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported an estimated 450,000 new cases of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. The emergence of multiple drug-resistant pneumonia and E. coli bacteria strains are predicted to contribute significantly to increased mortalities due to their ability to spread rapidly through populations.

Mossack Fonseca: The Nazi, CIA And Nevada Connections... And Why It's Now Rothschild's Turn
What the story is about is the nebulous world of offshore tax evasion and tax havens, which based on data from the World Bank, IMF, UN, and central banks, hide between $21 and $32 trillion, where registered incorporation agents and law firms in small Caribbean countries (and not so small US states) make the laundering of money and the "disappearance" of the super wealthy, into untracable numbers hidden behind shell companies, possible. [...] Why is Nevada important? Because recall that according to a recent investigation by Bloomberg, "The World’s Favorite New Tax Haven Is the United States" ... [...] Rothschild’s Penney wrote that the U.S. “is effectively the biggest tax haven in the world.”

Is Stephen Crabb the man to tackle this age of extreme inequality?
The Panama Papers will lead to the dynamiting of Tory credibility, but new work and pensions secretary, Stephen Crabb, is unlikely to prove the saviour of his party’s reputation. [...] Last autumn’s U-turn over cuts to working tax credits was a smoke screen. The axe will fall, only not everywhere, not just yet. From this week, existing universal credit claimants will lose up to £220 a month as the work allowance is pared back faster than the national living wage increases to replace it. [...] Short of taking a vow of poverty and retreating like Charles V to a monastery, there is nothing he can say now that will change the perception that he is at the head of a party that has a fundamental personal interest in preserving the advantages of the 1%.

Achselzucken schadet
Panama Papers Warum der Zynismus, mit dem die Leaks vielfach aufgenommen wurden, die falsche Reaktion auf die Enthüllungen ist [...] So wie es keine Neuigkeit ist, dass die globale Finanzelite sich eine juridisch-ökonomische Parallelwelt geschaffen hat. [...] Dennoch ist der fatalistische Zynismus, mit dem die Leaks vielerorts aufgenommen wurden, nicht nur falsch, sondern sogar gefährlich. Aus zwei Gründen: zum einen, weil der Zynismus eine Sprache ist, die der Neoliberalismus perfekt beherrscht. „Der Zyniker“, so schreibt etwa der Philosoph Franco Berardi, „ist ein leichter Schläfer: Er schläft traumlos und wacht auf, sobald die Macht ihn ruft.“ Wer sich in solcher Abgeklärtheit einrichtet, muss sich nicht wundern, wenn am Ende alles so bleibt, wie es ist.

Gefahr durch Fracking: Das Dreckwasser von Wyoming
Das umstrittene Fracking kann das Trinkwasser belasten. Ein beharrlicher US-Forscher hat das jetzt für ein Dorf exemplarisch nachgewiesen - gegen viele Widerstände. [...] Fallstudie zu Pavillion. Sie legt nahe, dass das Grundwasser dort tatsächlich mit Fracking-Schadstoffen belastet ist. Und dass diese im Boden nach oben wandern. In Tiefen, die auch von Trinkwasserbrunnen erreicht werden. [...] Was den Forscher zusätzlich empört, ist einfach erklärt: Die US-Gesetzgebung erlaubt es, dass zur Öl- und Gasförderung Chemikalien notfalls auch in Grundwasserreservoire eingeleitet werden. "Ich kenne keine westliche Demokratie, wo so etwas möglich ist", klagt DiGiulio. Man könne doch nicht ernsthaft annehmen, das so etwas ohne Folgen für das Trinkwasser bleibe.

The Privatising Industry in Europe
Do you wonder why the 'Troika' persists in its privatisation agenda despite the evidence of its failures and the growing economic and social costs?
The report “The Privatising Industry in Europe”, written by Sol Trumbo Vila and Matthijs Peters for the Transnational Institute, TNI, suggests two possible motives and shows who the ‪#‎BigWinners‬ of those privatisations are. - https://www.tni.org/en/publication/the-privatising-industry-in-europe - The rationale put forward by advocates of privatisation does not stand up to the evidence. Privatisation has failed to provide promised revenue as only profitable firms are being sold and consistently at undervalued prices. Meanwhile the latest research by the IMF and by European universities show that there is no evidence that the privatised firms are more efficient than state-owned firms. [...] Privatisation in Europe has encouraged a growth in corruption,
