Les architectes de la prochaine crise Économie En Vidéos États-Unis Récession

Un documentaire de Johan Norberg, À VOIR ABSOLUMENT, à propos de la prochaine crise économique…  Le prix à payer, pour avoir mis en application les stupides préceptes de la religion keynésienne, sera très élevé…

En bref, voici ce que les illettrés économiques présents dans les médias québécois n’ont jamais osé vous dire…

In times of crisis people seek strong leaders and simple solutions. But what if their solutions are identical to the mistakes that caused the very crisis? This is the story of the greatest economic crisis of our age, the one that awaits us.

P.-S. Lundi prochain, je vais publier un nouveau billet dans la série « Arguing with Idiots ».  L’heureux élu, désormais un habitué de cette chronique, sera nul autre que Jean-François Lisée.  Pour l’occasion, je vais procéder à une démolition contrôlée de sa réplique au Maclean’s: Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.   Ça devrait fesser aussi fort que la réplique faite à Jocelyn Coulon !

Obamacare Économie En Chiffres États-Unis Gauchistan

Quand Barack Obama a fait adopter son plan de réforme du système de santé, j’ai prédit que cet abominable projet socialiste allait profiter au mouvement libertarien puisque, sans le vouloir, les démocrates allaient fournir la preuve définitive que l’intervention de l’État dans la gestion des soins de santé mène invariablement à une augmentation des coûts.

L’histoire est en train de me donner raison.

Loin de réduire les coûts du système de santé, la réforme mise en place par l’Administration Obama aura un effet désastreux sur l’économie:

Mais il y a un espoir, puisque la résistance s’organise…

Obamacare

Pour paraphraser Benjamin Franklin: un peuple prêt à sacrifier un peu de liberté  pour un peu de sécurité ne mérite ni l’une ni l’autre, et finit par perdre les deux.

Europe Inflation Unexpectedly Accelerated in October
San Francisco Chronicle

European inflation unexpectedly accelerated to the fastest in almost two years and unemployment was at a 12-year high as the recovery showed signs of losing momentum.

Euro-area consumer prices rose 1.9 percent in October from a year earlier after increasing 1.8 percent in September, the European Union statistics office in Luxembourg said today. That’s the fastest since November 2008 and above the 1.8 percent forecast by economists in a Bloomberg survey. The jobless rate was 10.1 percent in September, the highest since July 1998, a separate report showed.

Crude-oil prices have jumped 9.2 percent over the past two months, leaving companies and consumers with less money to spend just as a stronger euro threatens to hurt exports. With the recovery faltering and governments tackling budget deficits, companies may keep hiring plans on hold, further eroding spending.

While the euro-region economy expanded at the fastest pace in four years in the second quarter, that’s failed so far to translate into faster job creation as companies remain reluctant to boost labor costs.

UN ‘to appoint space ambassador to greet alien visitors’
The Daily Telegraph

Mazlan Othman, a Malaysian astrophysicist, is set to be tasked with co-ordinating humanity’s response if and when extraterrestrials make contact. Aliens who landed on earth and asked: “Take me to your leader” would be directed to Mrs Othman.

She will set out the details of her proposed new role at a Royal Society conference in Buckinghamshire next week. Mrs Othman is currently head of the UN’s little known Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa).

In a recent talk to fellow scientists, she said: “The continued search for extraterrestrial communication, by several entities, sustains the hope that some day human kind will received signals from extraterrestrials. “When we do, we should have in place a coordinated response that takes into account all the sensitivities related to the subject. The UN is a ready-made mechanism for such coordination.”

Professor Richard Crowther, an expert in space law at the UK space agency who leads delegations to the UN, said: “Othman is absolutely the nearest thing we have to a ‘take me to your leader’ person”. The plan to make Unoosa the co-ordinating body for dealing with alien encounters will be debated by UN scientific advisory committees and should eventually reach the body’s general assembly.
