Jobs-Labor-101C, Austerity, Free-Trade Killed Detroit’s Economy & It Ejected 300,000 of Detroit’s Manufacturing Jobs to China, India & Mexico; Oligarch’s Bangks Raiding Detroit Pension Plans & Infrastructure ::

Republican “Michigan Governor Rick Snyder has seized power from local elected officials and handed it to a corporate lawyer he has named as the city’s “emergency manager.” In July, Snyder announced plans to steer Detroit into a federal bankruptcy process that could see its services curtailed, public employee pensions cut and assets sold off.” ::

November 2012 Michigan Voters Rejected the “Emergency Manager Bill” by Referendum. Michigan Republicans passed another one that’s almost impossible to get rid of early in 2013 ::

“The citizens of one of our largest cities are being shut out of the decisions that will affect their future.”

Illuminating Economics Article based on a review of a Book by author Philip Mirowski ~ “Never Let a Serious Crisis Go to Waste: How Neoliberalism Survived the Financial Meltdown” ::
“Mirowski traces the roots of this idea to (Neoliberal Chicago-School Economist) Frederich Hayek …(whose ideas) morphed into …a ‘Russian Doll’ approach to formulating …notion of humans as consumers and workers and nothing more worth mentioning. It serves the interest of right-wing billionaires, who are glad to fund it. …(we) see the influence of those ideas in the Chicago School of Economics…” ::
“…more humanistic approach of… (Depression-freeing Economist) John Maynard Keynes, has disappeared. …current argument in economics from Simon Wren-Lewis. …New Keynesian models describe consumers as perfectly rational actors…” ::
“…for (Chicago-School) neoliberals, …goal is to manipulate human beings into becoming creatures just like these (theoretical economic formula) constructs. …they don’t think it’s fair that some people get help from the government. If the government doesn’t help them, why should it help anyone else?” ::
“…evil of this approach is that it hides a crucial reality of life from the victims. The people who nurture and organize the manipulation and those all-powerful and all-knowing Markets are exempt from the strictures of those markets. …Corporate Persons are not to be subjected to laws created through some semi-democratic process, and neither are their human operators, …just check out the CEO-worshippers on CNBC and in the business magazines.”

Jobs-Labor-102B, Austerity, Widening Inequality, Profit-Charter Economics, U.S. Wealth Distribution, Jobs, Labor, Income Inequality & Income Redistribution ::

“…economic inequality, says writer Chrystia Freeland. In an impassioned talk, she charts the rise of a new class of plutocrats (those who are extremely powerful because they are extremely wealthy), and suggests that globalization and new technology are actually fueling, rather than closing, the global income gap.” “Global Plutocracy …boiled frog phenomenon” ::

(min 03:45) 3 Reasons include: “Political …lower taxes, deregulation particularly of financial services, privatization, weaker legal protections for trade unions …crony capitalism. …Getting rid of crony capitalism is particularly difficult.” ::

(min 05:40) “Globalization & the Technology Revolution, the twin economic transformations… powering the rise of the super-rich.” ::

(min 08:40) problem is “…Meritocratic Plutocracy can become Crony Plutocracy.  Amazon, Apple, Google, Starbucks …adept at working the international tax system so as to lower their tax bill very-very significantly. And why stop… change the rules of the game in your own favor. …Russian Oligarchs did… sale of the century privatization of Russia’s Natural Resources.” ::

(min 10:15) It’s one way of describing what happened with the deregulation of financial services in the U.S. and the U.K.” ::

(min 11:05) “The Great Gatsby Curve …as income inequality increases, social mobility decreases.  The Plutocracy may be a Meritocracy but you have to be born on the top rung. …3rd thing …forces driving the global plutocracy… hollowing out the middle class in western industrialized economies. …no economic rule which automatically translates increased economic growth into widely shared prosperity.  …Since the late 1990’s, increases in productivity have been ‘decoupled’ from increases in wages and employment.

>_^_ COMMENTARY/F.Y.I.: Trade Agreements effectively “Backwards Engineer” all City, County, State, and National Laws … rescinding any and all of a nations laws, work agreements, and environmental standards.

<>

All “Partner Nations” operate under threat of significant punitive Trade Sanction and Penalty paid to any Multinational CorpRatCon-Job or Partner Country who feels their Free-Trade Profit-Rights have been violated (so much for clinging to the prudent ways of protecting critical resources and assets from exploitation, planning for the future, or just maintaining “Nostalgic Democracy” or Civilization).

<>

Free Trade gives parasitic Multinationals unequivocal free reign to colonize all Partner Countries for short-term profits and long-term resource and social decimation. “FREE (but-highly-subsidized) TRADE is an Oligarch orchestrated “Cultural Limbo Contests” to determine the people who can survive on slave rations, w/o benefit of Taxes.  The absence of funding for Civilization, Law Enforcement, Social Services, and Protections from Environmental Cataclysm is assumed to serve the pursuits of CorpRat Profit-Charter Nihilism.

<>

A Rule by Corporatocracy outcome is entirely predictable from 1913 forward.  That’s when World Oligarchs bought 40% of Congress and set-up The Federal Reserve Monopoly Money and U.S. Currency Printing Franchise.  The 1% continues to issue a “Fractional Reserve” platinum charge card and encourage deficit spending to seal the Colonization, Austerity, Privatization and Profitization deal and direct the Wall Street Casino to benefit the owners.

In Late December 1913, 20 some percent of the Lawmakers had gone home for Christmas Break when that Tyrannical Fed Law passed, Institutionalizing American Serfdom.  The 1% Rich have owned U.s & led U.s to War for conquest and profit ever since.  They just have to create new demons for dominionist blind-believers to hate.

1% B.F.s Ruffle-the-Red-Cape, and pledgeiplegic patridiot gun-slinging habituated Fools-Rush-In.  The 1% eats steak.

About greenenvscithr

This American, a socially concerned blogger, is a conservationist and an anti-desertification advocate. Cultures with paralyzed memories expand deserts. These cause and effect traits define human impact in the geologic warming period that is marked by population explosion, technological advancement and desertification of vast tracts of arable land. As a tree-hugger, it’s easy to look around the world at deforestation which dries climates, decreases surface water, but increases soil erosion and global warming …evaluating them as slow motion end-times behaviors. It should also be noted that progressive behavioral change holds the potential to stride toward sustainability, and coexistence on a blue-green planet …with others who look, think, talk, or act differently. (Tribalism + Nationalism + Profit-Charter = Corp’s War + Human Carnage + Environmental Disaster) If regard for a living environment reached a status equal to that fomented by deities, a bond uniting humanity across cultural and national borders could really exist. The human behavior instruction manual might offer a harmonic concrete experience instead of the confusion in an 1,189 chapter tyrant's windsock that requires interpreters with different intentions to construct misunderstandings about both physical and virtual worlds. Any deity that demands intellectual hypocrisy to absorb what is abstract, and funnels prey to the misguidance that mandates blind-belief, silence and complicity (while spreading clinical paranoid schizophrenia) will just lead people where psychopaths designate. Most religions are better described as "Maleligions" …as their traditions and laws are male contrived and dominated hierarchies. They generally concentrate on controlling women for the convenience of men, and programming both for the advantage of tyrants. A dictator wants blind-believers with a testosterone disadvantage and compliant cracker ovens to repopulate followers, thus erasing fatal mistakes in his tyrannical judgment. Creating “emotional deserts” raft with mental vortexes, (in which to become psychologically lost), leads stealthily to the cultural dissonance and distraction that produces the real ones, “rock paved deserts.” The human race is minimally a gaggle of tribes of desert-makers, except for a few that live sustainably. Freed from the bondage of a hereafter (that promises a reunion with familiar like minded people and an aura of mystery), progress and sustainability (unencumbered by cultural apathy and a parched pre-destiny) could exist. But religions general heading is in the opposite direction… suppressing women, sporting flat earth firewalls and celebrating dark-age “dolthood” as it spills human brain power into an everlasting insurance policy. Generally speaking, mysterious religions provide segues between human ignorance and corrupt psychopaths in an overall unconscious effort to leave no planet worth inhabiting. 3,018 ac edited 09-27-14
