But it isn't really about progress or innovation or creation, it is about the dismantling of the economy, while extracting as much profit as possible until the sad end. With every job, so goes a piece of the GDP, and now, in dramatic comparison to the 1950s and 1960s, the bulk of the tax base of America derives from payroll taxes, which the super-rich certainly don't pay, i.e., Amerika is so very effed!

. . . only really works in the labor market we are told, since it is completely inoperative everywhere else!!!!!

And taken a bit further, with a bit more modern historical research, NAFTA was about the same thing: new regs allowing for foreign ownership of Mexican banks (within one year of the passage of NAFTA, or signing by Mexico, 90% of their banks became foreign owned), when then favor Big Agra, which speedily moves in to take over the agriculture industry, while payouts go to Mexican politicians favoring the privatizing of those farmlands occupied by Mexican subsistance farmers, who are then forced off their lands, and thus journey north to America, to continue the downward trend on wages at the lower levels, etc., etc., etc.

Not really, me thinks, since those klepto-psycho-greedheads only dwell on money and their greed.

Given that all those so-called think tanks were founded and financed by the super rich, and whenever they claim one is "liberal" --- like the Brookings Institution (where one finds the Hamilton Project, founded by Robert Rubin, to privatize EVERYTHING), nothing could be further from the truth!

Then when you consider that former psychos from various bloody dictatorial regimes are employed at these so-called think tanks, since the Wall Street-owned American gov't invested in criminal elements to overthrow their various democracies (Iran, Guatemala, Honduras, Brazil, Chile, etc., etc., etc.), and then when the psycho-crooks there fall out of power, they have favored immigration to the USA, whereby they immediately are senior fellows at these stink tanks, and that almost daily our news is provided to us by various newsy whorescum interviewing swine from these stink tanks defining what the so-called news is --- Amerika is soooo over.

While I probably don't agree with this fellow's political beliefs, I do confirm that he is on the right track, i.e., One World Bank, which owns One World Corporation and One World Financial Exchange, said One World Bank controlling the One World Currency, of course:

Oh, you mean how the NSA goes after financial intel for Wall Streeters and the ultra-rich?

If that's your definition, and Petrobas and others are your enemy category, than one might suppose he did, but if you stand by the citizenry, one day you might actually comprehend who your real enemy is (assuming you aren't a chatbot or some type of poseur).

Sorry, David_Hart, but you are falling for their trap, and allowing them to define everything, including the latest in bullcrap charges.

In fact, this is to redirect attention from the actual cause, which is internalization, which is the purchase of almost 100% (like around 93% to 96%) of all public stock purchases by the top banks and hedge funds from the major brokerage firms. Then they do these trades they have purchased on their own internal systesm (known as dark pools), thus they control the public trades, and they have the insider data as to the trends --- really almost complete command and control.

QuasiSteve, representing the typical commenter who speaks from volumes of ignorance, makes both a legal and criminal invalid point, since the official stance of the US Government is that such nonpayment or nonpurchases DO NOT AFFECT THE MARKETS (which any sane person who passed arithmetic would disagree with, but then who the eff owns the government, of course!)!!!

This is a replay of when the criminal AG, Holder, went after some small fry awhile back, proclaiming they had violated the Law of Fraudulent Conveyance, one of many crimes which the banksters had knowingly and willfully violated to bring about the global economic meltdown a few years back.

Exactly, and since the federal courts have dismissed previously lawsuits brought against DTCC and their Stock Borrow Program, for much greater financial manipulation aimed at small, publicly owned companies, and since as any commodity futures trader realizes, if he or she isn't completely brain dead: an unlimited number of futures can be purchased to manipulate the market [which was what they did to speculate up oil prices in 2008 and other times, just as an unlimited number of credit default swaps can be purchased against bonds or outstanding debt, to financially manipulate everything and cause an economic meltdown.

I realize that to many Ameritards, just say it is so, makes it so.

I realize that most Ameritards have no idea, or even interest, that Holder earned his big bucks defending corporations which hired assassins to murder labor organizers and protesters (South American and West Africa), nor would such background data affect their nonthinking ways.

If you ever came into contact with any of Gates' code, you would know he was a mediocre coder. Gladwell neglected to mention [SOP for that douchetard] that Gates' mom was on several boards with the IBM CEO, which is how Gates ended up with the greatest licensing deal in human history (DOS), that he hired someone to copy Gary Kildall's CP/M and call it DOS [MS would later pay $1 billion in out of court settlement to the holder of the license to it], and that Gates uncle was VP at First Interstate, where he obtained his original financing.

Otherwise, I agree overall with your comments.

. . . used to say, "It ain't what people don't know, it's what they think they know!"

I've come in contact with at least one super genius that I know of, and it was a most humbling experience. I have solved technical problems which previous companies and persons have spent hundreds of thousands, and sometimes millions of dollars, to solve, to no avail. Perseverance prevails when intelligence is sometimes lacking . . .

We don't know one millionth of one percent about anything.
