Prophesy of economic collapse ‘coming true’ – Metafilter 11/22/08

In 1972 the Club of Rome published the famous book Limits to Growth that predicted exponential growth would eventually lead to economic and environmental collapse. It was criticized by economists and largely ignored by politicians. Now Graham Turner at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Australia has compared the book’s predictions with data from the intervening years. According to Turner (PDF report) changes in industrial production, food production and pollution are all in line with the book’s predictions of collapse in the 21st century. According to the book, the path we have taken will cause decreasing resource availability and an escalating cost of extraction that triggers a slowdown of industry, which eventually results in economic collapse some time after 2020

The history of the Federal Reserve, one of the biggest scams in US history, and an important development in capitalist society, is a fascinating subject.  Wading through this is time well spent.

Financial crisis a distraction, says Nobel winner – Raw Story 12/3/08

“You remember the food crisis? It’s still on, it didn’t disappear. Simply, this (financial crisis) became much more pressing and everybody is paying attention.”  He continued: “Then we have the energy crisis, it’s still there… And then the environmental crisis, we have not solved anything about the environmental crisis.” 

Yunus, who along with his Grameen Bank won the Nobel peace award in 2006 for efforts to lift people out of extreme poverty by giving them small loans, said that any solution had to “address simultaneously all these four” crises.  “It’s a framework problem: we have to have a framework which can address these issues about the lifestyle, about food production, technology, pricing, globalisation, tariffs.”

The Free Lakota Bank – is the world’s first non-reserve, non-fractional bank that issues, accepts for deposit, and circulates REAL money…silver and gold. All of our deposits are liquid, meaning they can be withdrawn at any time in minted rounds.

Free Lakota Bank – Preliminary Assessment – BreakTheMatrix 11/26/08

With the launch of the Free Lakota Bank, The Free & Independent Nation of Lakota has launched a frontal assault on Wall Street, The Fed, and International Bankers.

Native Americans are historically known for their strong spirit, patience, and stealth, not to mention their very advanced war making strategies. The launch of this banking concept seems to display all of these characteristics in spades.

While The Free & Independent Nation of Lakota’s formal secession from the United States passed last year with little comment or reaction, this latest development will likely raise many eyebrows around the world. Ultimately, official reactions will be based on how individuals and markets respond to the offerings of their bank.

Good morning!!!!
I don’t mean to be harsh with the previous statement, but really, that’s the way it should be. Levitra or Viagra doesn’t do anything to normal individuals. They are for those who have trouble promoting or keeping erection at all. So unless your doctor says that you do have an erectile dysfunction, then do not take the drug….price generic!..
buy on line generic
