  1. I will never forgive him for Railtrack and Privatization and not ensuring legal constraints on greater political union with Europe. Could easily have forged a far better deal which would have been the most unique arrangement that may have prevented the political polarization of the referendum. His personal life trajectory and story is film worth. Incredible achievement. His parents were literally Circus acts and he grew up in inner Brixton. I suspect somewhere he relaxes with some medical herbs and dub sounds whilst watching Cricket.
  2. I have been amazed at just how high a number as a proportion, of people with Economics Degrees of all levels, seem to coalesce in the highest echelons of my Industry. And Industry which is literally not a sole-economic led industry in its operations.
  3. I think Mr. Islam will be edited down with any real talk by the upstairs big wigs
  4. I am convinced Faisal Islam - on account of his book The Default Line - must be either a poster or lurker.
  5. I can't hep but add to this interesting tangent. None other than Pakistan, was the state that - ideologically and covertly - had extensive back-channel ties to nascent post-1947 Israel, famously culminating in the 80s when the favorable-to-the-US coup against Bhutto, was led by Gen. Zia - who literally accelerated right-wing authoritarian Islamic political influence within Pakistan's institutions and society - who then famously didn't care a jot of Israel selling him weapons or helping train the Rambo 3 "freedom fighters" in tribal Pakistani areas to then go forth to fight the soviets in Afghanistan. The more you learn the less you know you know.
  6. Crypto idealists never ever give a solid answer to this conundrum of where power is. Growth yes; but usurping the established mesh of finance, military, politics and power? I really love the common sense of those that i know who both believe in it as a tech or asset but understand power. and make of it for what it is, not the manner of it being sold to vulnerable people as the elixir of future freedom. You're not suddenly going to upset an economic order establsihed for 100s of years, that stores and controls large global capital under tax-havens, crown legalities and military/technological/[political media might via cryptos
  7. Been seeing everyone I know not having any answer to what happens when Furlough ends???!! (September as of today) Surely even the Tories bluster can't keep this spinning; what happens if even 20 percent of those jobs don't come back/replaced within a year??
  8. Apologies. Thought it deserved it's own thread as the 7 part series Can't Get You Out Of My Head. he's made starts and will throw up major themes about the state of the world and us. Discuss Freely. Where are we going? What can we do? What will happen? https://www.ft.com/content/6ae01b8a-b542-45d5-83d5-4ec4c1cee21b ‘Nothing is working, the systems are broken’ The documentarist’s provocative new BBC series ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’ tackles political history in freewheeling, fun and dizzying fashion
  9. Gamestop shares How a bunch of nameless internet anonymous people may cause hedge funds to lose heavily.
  10. Ermm, is anyone following the Gamestop news and how a bunch of internet anonymous people may have caused a domino effect in the hedge fund market by checkmating short-selling?
