La démocratie En Citations International Philosophie

On interdit les minarets en Suisse, les nationalo-gauchistes québécois recommencent à s’exciter à la vue des accommodements raisonnables et les écologistes ont recours au populisme pour inciter les politiciens à supprimer nos libertés. Petite réflexion de Terry Goodkind, auteur de la série mythique d’inspiration libertarienne « The Sword of Truth », au sujet de la démocratie:

« People use democracy as a free-floating abstraction disconnected from reality. Democracy in and of itself is not necessarily good. Gang rape, after all, is democracy in action.

All men have the right to live their own life. Democracy must be rooted in a rational philosophy that first and foremost recognizes the right of an individual. Democracy is not a synonym for justice or for freedom. Democracy is not a sacred right sanctifying mob rule. Democracy is a principle that is subordinate to the inalienable rights of the individual. »

WSJ/NBC News Poll: Tea Party Tops Democrats and Republicans
The Wall Street Journal

The loosely organized group made of up mostly conservative activists and independent voters that’s come to be known as the Tea Party movement currently boasts higher favorability ratings than either the Democratic or Republican Parties, according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll coming out later today.

More than four in 10, 41%, of respondents said they had a very or somewhat favorable view of the Tea Party movement, while 24% said they had a somewhat or very negative view of the group. The Tea Party movement gained notoriety over the summer following a series of protests in Washington, D.C. and other cities over government spending and other U.S. economic policies.

Meanwhile, the Democratic Party, which controls both the White House and Congress, has a 35% positive rating compared with a 45% negative rating.

The Republican Party identifies closest to the Tea Party movement’s ideology, but the group has also caused splits within the GOP. Republicans currently hold a 28% favorability rating compared with a 43% negative one.

Compte chèque ou compte épargne ? Canada Économie En Chiffres Québec

Avec l’arrivée du temps des fêtes, c’est le retour de la cohue dans les centres commerciaux;  une période où l’on oublie les vertus de l’épargne et qui est souvent synonyme d’achat à crédit.

Voici comment a évolué le taux d’épargne depuis 1981:

L’évolution pour chaque province depuis 1981:

  • Alberta: -16,4%
  • Saskatchewan: -81,3%
  • Ontario: -82,1%
  • Manitoba: -85,9%
  • Nouveau-Brunswick: -86,9%
  • Québec: -88,1%
  • Terre-Neuve: -92,2%
  • Nouvelle-Écosse: -120,3%
  • Colombie-Britannique: -123,8%
  • Île-du-Prince-Édouard: -177,3%

Voici l’évolution du crédit à la consommation:

Lors des récessions du début des années 80 et 90, le crédit à la consommation s’est contracté.  Lors de la présente récession, grâce aux politiques irresponsables de la Banque du Canada, le crédit à la consommation a continué de croître.

De 2000 à 2009, le crédit à la consommation a augmenté de 97% alors que le revenu personnel disponible réel n’a augmenté que de 30%.

Pour citer l’économiste autrichien Ludwig von Mises:

Ludwig von Mises

« True, government can reduce the rate of interest in the short run. They can issue additional paper money. They can open the way to credit expansion by the banks. They can thus create an artifical boom and the appearance of prosperity. But such a boom is bound to collapse sooner or later and to bring about a depression. »

Questions over business deals of UN climate change guru Dr Rajendra Pachauri
The Daily Telegraph

No one in the world exercised more influence on the events leading up to the Copenhagen conference on global warming than Dr Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and mastermind of its latest report in 2007. Although Dr Pachauri is often presented as a scientist (he was even once described by the BBC as “the world’s top climate scientist”), as a former railway engineer with a PhD in economics he has no qualifications in climate science at all.

What has also almost entirely escaped attention, however, is how Dr Pachauri has established an astonishing worldwide portfolio of business interests with bodies which have been investing billions of dollars in organisations dependent on the IPCC’s policy recommendations.

These outfits include banks, oil and energy companies and investment funds heavily involved in ‘carbon trading’ and ‘sustainable technologies’, which together make up the fastest-growing commodity market in the world, estimated soon to be worth trillions of dollars a year. Today, in addition to his role as chairman of the IPCC, Dr Pachauri occupies more than a score of such posts, acting as director or adviser to many of the bodies which play a leading role in what has become known as the international ‘climate industry’.

It is remarkable how only very recently has the staggering scale of Dr Pachauri’s links to so many of these concerns come to light, inevitably raising questions as to how the world’s leading ‘climate official’ can also be personally involved in so many organisations which stand to benefit from the IPCC’s recommendations.

Ben Bernanke, le président de la Réserve fédérale des États-Unis, a été nommé par le magazine Time la personnalité de l’année.

La réaction de Ron Paul:

« The big question is: has he used that power for good or for evil? And of course my side of the argument is the system is evil and the chairman, whether it’s Greenspan or Bernanke, they can do no good. »
