Which company produced the Zyklon B for the gas showers in Nazi Germany? IG Farben aka Bayer.
Which company produced Agent Orange for the Vietnam war? You guessed right, MONSANTO.
Now Bayer may buy Monsanto and the world may enjoy their consolidated power.
For lack of knowledge people are destroyed.
The above is a graph of the Deutsche Bank stock value and just an example of the many stocks that are currently tumbling down '2008 style' which remarkably coincides with the release of the movie 'The Big Short'. The movie is about savvy bankers/hedge funders who know how to take advantage of a crashing financial market. I bet the same will be happening again when the next crisis will hit us ; another and perhaps final transfer of 'wealth' or what was left of it since 2008 from the populace to the oligarchs.
Add to the falling stock prices the low levels of the Baltic Dry Index, an economic indicator which shows you an assessment of the price of moving the major raw materials by sea.
So in short: simply place your bets on plummeting stock prices.
Not surprisingly but also sadly it takes a Nobel prize winning MIT professor named Robert Solow, or a previously mentioned Thomas Piketty, to warn you for the obvious future in which the very very few will rule the many. It of course was never any different (I mean: ever wondered who owns all the printed money and landmass?) but lately it is becoming abundantly blatant.
Why do you think the media addressed the recent Powerball lottery with a jackpot of more than a billion? I have my doubts that amount will in fact be paid to someone but besides that it is the term billionaire that sticks. Every amount less doesn't count these days.
Yet there is more than enough money to end poverty overnight when redistributed differently and with the mindset that poverty is a disgrace to mankind.
America as promoted is the land of the free and home of the brave but soon the whole earth becomes the world of the fee and home of the slave..and as always: simply reflecting our collective mindset.
Hopefully it can be done on a large scale for cheap. It could ruin the wicked plans of Nestlé to privatise water.
A lot of TTIP protesters were on the streets today to save democracy but THAT presupposes that there IS democracy. Furthermore they demand to know what the advantage is for 'the people' which again falsely presumes it was ever designed to serve the people.
You see, with a hopelessly naive attitude like that the baddies surely will win. Forget fighting them legally just SIMPLY boycot specific products.
