Turkmenistan Devalues Currency By 18%, Armstrong Warns Of "Economic Collapse On A Global Scale"
ZeroHedge | author | 01/02/15

However, as Martin Armstrong warns, this is symptomatic of a deflationary contagion that "will contribute to now force the dollar higher... We are in a major economic collapse on a global scale. Most people do not understand that this is the real threat we face." ... Read more

Paul Krugman: How Soaring Inequality May Lead the World Down the Path of Fascism
AlterNet | Paul Krugman | 01/02/15

We live in scary times, Paul Krugman writes in his Friday New York Times column. So scary that they put the esteemed economist in mind of 1930s Europe.

The rising inequality problem, well established by Thomas Piketty's " Capital in the Twenty-First Century", has concentrated so much wealth in the hands of so few, while millions of other live in what Krugman poetically calls the "Valley of the despond."

The only other group that is doing well, besides the global elite, says Krugman, is "what we might call the global middle -- largely consisting of the rising middle classes of China and India." For a crystal clear view if what is going on he suggests consulting a remarkable chart of income gains around the world produced by Branko Milanovic of the City University of New York Graduate Center. ...

Other Videos and Documentaries I Ran Across
I was interested by Norman Finkelsteins comment in Wednesdays interview with TRNN. He said Khrushchev spoke out in 1956, exposing all the atrocities of Joseph Stalin, and helped chang his mind on Communism.

I'm currently watching documentaries on the Cold War and reading books about the same time period between the end of WWII and 1991. I'm interested in how much our preceptions of The Soviet Union was distorted by propoganda and government manipulation, by both sides, and how different todays world would be if we had just worked together.

Donation


I am one of those "once" middle class, over 60, over educated, under-employed, semi retired, soon to be poor workers, that everyone is talking about. 
But I have a modest standard of living so I plan to give all extra donation, beyond my immediate needs, to several of my favorite charities.
