John Ralston Saul: The Collapse of Globalism - YouTube
the source of legitimacy is economics and only one source/type of economic thinking // TTIP & Co erase governments! // globalisation hailed promises, empty promises. // the more they say its inevitable, the more you know its the way out. // bailout for one side of society, and austerity for the others // no shared economic interest !!! rootless tax evaders global corporations are not stakeholders in country X // where does the power go? decision and policy making? to those with money and influence and network! - thus not the citizens // "we are in a post-globalist world" really? why is there then TTIP? Austerity is currently taking over the vacuum! // neoliberalism pouted and propagandated by fear induced monologues by Career Politicians (GFC) // money has no moral limits nor conscience !!! // great moderation and unfettered globalisation & financial realm (masters of the universe) - Alan Greenspan & Ben Bernanke >> extremes (ideology) break down (GFC) // austerity doesn't work!

Economic policy: Paved with good intentions | The Economist
Although the debate [austerity] relates to the UK, I think it has a much wider resonance. And indeed, to a student of history, it has fascinating parallels; economic policy-making was rethought in the mid-1970s, but the same debates are popping up again. [...] Margaret Thatcher on ZIRP & QE "Let us print the money instead. Because what that is saying is let us quietly steal a cerain amount from every pound saved in building societies, in national savings, from every person who has been thrifty." [...] [ZIRP & QE is no free lunch - it has consequences, known and unknown, unintended.]
