Un divorce à la même temps très nécessaire pour retrouver l'objectivité et l'indépendance.
Ce qui est dommage que les débats sont fragmenté aujourd'hui et il y a très peut de débats sur l'intégralité des problèmes et challenges de la société. On a fait quelque sorte un diviser et contrôle débatère.
Cette fragmentation du débat sans voir le total laisse le débat dans une vide, sans contexte, un débat qui continue d'être dans une virtualité politico-médiatique.
Ni la media ni la politique n'ont pas vraiment l'intérêt que ce débat se profondit pour dévoiler sa intégralité façon parler.
Qu-est qui se passe dans le débat sur l'immigration?
- La peur de l'autre?
- La contexte et l'éffet de la mondilisation?
- La peur de soi-même peut-être?
- Les élections politique technique qui ont peut avoir avec la démocratie?
- Le pouvoir hiérarchisé?
- Les méchanismes et pouvoirs économiques?
- Il y a encore un éspace dans notre âme et société ou l'homme égale l'homme?
Demandez vous pourquoi il n'y a pas vraiment un débat sur cette sujèt sensible?
Vous êtes depuis septembre dernier entre 600 et 1000 visteurs unique par mois sur cette blog, prend le risque de laissé une commentaire ou analyse de votre part, si vous avez envie de le faire!
Un débat pour la mille-et-unième fois re-enclenché cette fois par Marianne le 6-2-2011, Ce soir et jamais etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.
Pourquoi ce débat étérnelle politque correct ou incorrect mais au fond on touche rien du tout?
L'article de Paul Thibaud est plutôt une inventaire pour créé un (nouveau) point de départ. Jean Raspail ne va pas ou ça fait mal, même quand parfois des choses à réflichir! Mais son approche à aussi une côté dangéreux comme il dit lui même!
Peût être un tentation prochaine fois d'y repondre! Entre temps j'espère vous y réflichi vous même pourquoi c'est un débat sans fin!?
Un grand compliment pour l'observation de Philippe Dessertine économiste en plus ;-) Comme aussi parfois Michel Godet et les autres.
Blog fait le 6 février 2011, on va voir si le débat va changer de fond entre temps.
This is the twelfth of a series of blogs based on excerpts adapted from the 2nd edition of Agenda for a New Economy: From Phantom Wealth to Real Wealth. I wrote Agenda to spur a national conversation on economic policy issues and options that are otherwise largely ignored. This blog series is intended to contribute to that conversation. —DK
The unrealistic expectation that money should grow effortlessly in perpetuity [see my last blog] is more than an issue of unrealizable expectations. It combines with a Wall Street controlled debt-based money system to create an imperative for the economy to grow the profits of bankers, and thereby the richest among us, to keep the financial system, and thereby the economy, from collapsing.
It is odd that we experienced a financial collapse in 2008 because of a credit crunch, a shutdown on lending, at a time when the world was already awash in money. BusinessWeek’s July 11, 2005, cover story shouted “Too Much Money” and spoke of a savings glut. Its June 11, 2008, European issue reiterated the theme: “Too Much Money, Inflation Goes Global.”
Most discussion of the financial crisis focuses on the details and misses the big picture. First, much of the money was tied up in the Wall Street casino rather than facilitating productive activity in the real economy and was simply pumping up a phantom wealth bubble. Second, virtually every dollar in the system was borrowed, because in our money system, banks create money by lending it into existence. When this debt is used to inflate financial bubbles and support Ponzi schemes, eventual default is inevitable.
Third, Wall Street and the Federal Reserve are joined in an alliance to keep “wage inflation” below the level of growth in the real cost of living. This assures that the benefits of productivity gains all go to owners rather than being shared with workers. It also keeps inflation confined to financial bubbles that inflate the phantom wealth financial assets of the rich.
Furthermore, it forces the bottom 90 percent of the population—the people who make their living by producing real goods and services—into debt at usurious interest rates to the top 10 percent to cover daily basic daily expenses. Inevitably, the amounts owed exceed the borrower’s ability to repay. The lenders then stop lending and foreclose on the assets of the desperate borrowers.
When a loan is repaid or goes into default, the debt is canceled and the money supply shrinks by that amount. Most loans continue to be repaid, but if new loans are not being issued, the demand for real goods and services falls because people don’t have the money to pay for them. As demand falls, businesses lay off workers, who then join those pushed into default.
The problem appears to be a lack of money, even though the total money in circulation is far more than enough to cover real-wealth exchanges in a rational real-wealth economy. The money, however, is locked up in the Wall Street casino economy rather than circulating in the real Main Street economy. Pouring public bailout money into Wall Street serves only to reflate the bubble. It does nothing to revive the real economy.
The demand by Wall Street for the eventual repayment with interest of nearly every dollar in circulation means that to avoid collapse, the economy has to grow to generate demand for new borrowing to put new money into circulation to pay the interest due to bankers on already outstanding loans. This demand for perpetual growth simply to keep the bankers solvent results in a serious distortion of society’s economic priorities.
Rather than maximizing real well-being, policy makers are compelled to focus on avoiding economic collapse by growing the money economy. A debt-based money system can make sense when the credit funds real investment. When the credit funds current consumption and phantom wealth speculation, the result is ever-increasing debt, inequality, destruction of the natural environment, erosion of the social fabric, and ultimate default.
For too long, we have put up with a money system designed to grow the financial assets of rich people at the expense of assuring continuing cycles of economic boom and bust, confining billions to lives of desperation, and reducing Earth to a toxic waste dump. We can do better.
Growth in GDP creates the illusion that we are getting richer, even as we accelerate our material, social, and spiritual self-impoverishment as a species. Fortunately for our common future, people everywhere are waking up to the reality and challenging conventional economic wisdom. They are focusing their attention on rebuilding their communities and local economies to improve human security, health, and happiness without regard to how this impacts GDP, corporate share prices or other bogus indicators of economic well-being. It is an important beginning.
An obvious next step is to replace GDP and other financial indicators with indicators of the health of our children, families, communities, and natural systems as the basis for assessing the economy’s performance. We may then notice that destroying living wealth to create financial wealth is an act of collective suicidal insanity and begin treating money as a useful tool for managing our economic choices rather than as the end to be maximized.

28 novembre 2005 sur france inter j'ai entendu dans un émission quelque chose inquétant/intéressant. Je pense ou j'espère j'ai mal compris, entendu ou raté complètement le context de l'émission.
Les dépenses mondiale les plus importants:
Dans l'économie c'est important de prendre ta place, la question nécessaire est. Est ce qu'on doit prendre la place ou frais des autres?
Tout les liens avec les politique, les multinationales, la soi disant marché libre, la fonctionnement de la justice ou la fonctionnement de l'homme en général est fruit d'un pure hasard. A lire avec clin d'oeil, autrement l'essentiel ne peut pas paraître.
Autrement dit, essaie de lire comme une observation et pas comme une accusation.
Do you still say your prayers little darlin' do you go to bed at night
Prayin' that tomorrow, everything will be alright
But tomorrow's fall in number in number one by one
You wake up and you're dying you don't even know what from
Well they shot you point blank you been shot in the back
Baby point blank you been fooled this time little girl that's a fact
Right between the eyes baby, point blank right between the pretty lies that they tell
Little girl you fell
You grew up where young girls they grow up fast
You took what you were handed and left behind what was asked
but what they asked baby wasn't right
you didn't have to live that life,
I was gonna be your Romeo you were gonna be my Juliet
These days you don't wait on Romeo's you wait on that welfare check
and on all the pretty things that you can't ever have and on all the promises
That always end up point blank, shot between the eyes
Point blank like little white lies you tell to ease the pain
You're walkin' in the sights, girl of point blank
and it's one false move and baby the lights go out
Once I dreamed we were together again baby you and me
Back home in those old clubs the way we used to be
We were standin' at the bar it was hard to hear
The band was playin' loud and you were shoutin' somethin' in my ear
You pulled my jacket off and as the drummer counted four
You grabbed my hand and pulled me out on the floor
You just stood there and held me, then you started dancin' slow
And as I pulled you tighter I swore I'd never let you go
Well I saw you last night down on the avenue
Your face was in the shadows but I knew that it was you
You were standin' in the doorway out of the rain
You didn't answer when I called out your name
You just turned, and then you looked away like just another stranger waitin' to get blown away
Point blank, right between the eyes
Point blank, right between the pretty lies you fell
Point blank, shot straight through the heart,
Yea point blank, you've been twisted up till you've become just another part of it
Point blank, you're walkin' in the sights,
Point blank, livin' one false move just one false move away
Point blank, they caught you in their sights
Point blank, did you forget how to love, girl, did you forget how to fight.
Point blank they must have shot you in the head
Cause point blank, bang bang baby you're dead.
