This is an excellent podcast about #UniversalBasicIncome (and so much more), with Richard Feidler interviewing historian Rutger Bregman. The most inspiring chat I have listened to in a long while.

Universal Basic Income: The future?


http://www.abc.net.au/radio/programs/conversations/conversations-rutger-bregman-rpt/10053806

I have found Bregman to be quite optimistic, and that is a very refreshing thing. I'm looking forward to reading his book, Utopia for Realists.

#Terrorism is the #war of the poor.

War is terrorism with a higher budget.

"War on Terror" is the war rich against poor.

Just 8 men own same wealth as half the world.



https://www.oxfam.org/en/pressroom/pressreleases/2017-01-16/just-8-men-own-same-wealth-half-world

It's like most people don't think about the consequences when they use Microsoft Windows and Apple products, when they go to Walmart, when they don't boycott companies that lack social responsibility, when they vote for corrupt politicians, etc.

Of course we also have to take into account:
· The financial/banking system (based on debt slavery, compound interests, etc).
· Patents (that is, monopolies granted by the state so corporate predators can hijack technologies that otherwise could be used to produce new cheaper products, medicines... all over the world).
· Tax havens and loopholes.
· Corporate welfare.
· Corruption, insider trading, etc.

Oxfam: An Economy for the 99%: It’s time to build a human economy that benefits everyone, not just the privileged few



http://policy-practice.oxfam.org.uk/publications/an-economy-for-the-99-its-time-to-build-a-human-economy-that-benefits-everyone-620170
Paper available in #English #French #Spanish #Portuguese
New estimates show that just eight men own the same wealth as the poorest half of the world. As growth benefits the richest, the rest of society – especially the poorest – suffers. The very design of our economies and the principles of our economics have taken us to this extreme, unsustainable and unjust point. Our economy must stop excessively rewarding those at the top and start working for all people. Accountable and visionary governments, businesses that work in the interests of workers and producers, a valued environment, women’s rights and a strong system of fair taxation, are central to this more human economy. The sources and methodology behind the headline facts in this paper are explained in the separate methodology note.
