Why Sharks Should Not Own Sport – John Pilger

As Tiger Woods returns to golf, not all his affairs are salacious headlines. The Tiger Woods Golf Course in Dubai is costing $100million to build. Dubai relies on cheap third world labour, as do certain consumer brands that have helped make Woods a billionaire. Nike workers in Thailand wrote to Woods, expressing their “utmost respect for your skill and perseverance as an athlete” but pointing out that they would need to work 72,000 years “to receive what you will earn from [your Nike] contract”.

The problem is that the financial tsunami was created by inflating the money supply in the first place. That’s like putting out a fire by throwing gasoline on it. Continue reading

Naom Chomsky: Crisis and Hope – Theirs and Ours

The Second Wave Of The Depression – Hyperinflation Likely

(WebsterTarpley) – The second wave of the world economic depression is coming soon. Larry Summers, the economics czar of the Wall Street puppet regime currently in power in Washington, recently confessed to the Financial Times in an unguarded moment: “I don’t think the worst is over ….” A few weeks earlier, Jacques Attali, who served in the 1980s as the main economics adviser to French President Mitterrand, told an audience at the International Economic and Financial Forum (FIEF) in Paris that the world might well soon face a “planetary Weimar” in the form of a hyperinflationary depression similar to the German events of 1922 to 1923.

Sleepwalking Our Way Towards a World Currency

Let’s assume for a moment that we are in the protean stages of a new world currency; that the G20’s moves this time last week are laying the ground for its special drawing rights to replace the dollar as the international reserve currency. On that basis which of these two scenarios would you feel more uncomfortable with:

1. That a shadowy sect of global leaders are conspiring together to set up this new world currency; or that,

2. Instead, clueless politicians are sleepwalking into this, not knowing precisely what they are doing. Continue reading
