Les riches s’enrichissent et les pauvres s’appauvrissent ? Économie En Vidéos

Depuis que je tiens ce blogue, j’ai dû écrire une vingtaine de billets démontrant à quel point le concept relatif aux écarts de richesses est absurde.

Voici un vidéo qui fait une synthèse de tous ces arguments.

À voir absolument !

Inefficacité énergétique Économie Environnement Europe

Attention, politicien au travail !

Pour l’année fiscale 2009/2010 seulement, le Royaume-Uni a dépensé 2,2 milliards de dollars pour faire la promotion des énergies renouvelables.

Le bilan ? Pour payer toutes ces subventions, on estime que pour chaque emploi créé dans le secteur des énergies vertes, 3,7 emplois ont été perdus dans les autres secteurs de l’économie.

Ces résultats confirment les résultats d’une étude réalisée en Espagne en 2009.

Financial terrorism suspected in 2008 economic crash
The Washington Times

Evidence outlined in a Pentagon contractor report suggests that financial subversion carried out by unknown parties, such as terrorists or hostile nations, contributed to the 2008 economic crash by covertly using vulnerabilities in the U.S. financial system.

The unclassified 2009 report “Economic Warfare: Risks and Responses” by financial analyst Kevin D. Freeman, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times, states that “a three-phased attack was planned and is in the process against the United States economy.”

“There is sufficient justification to question whether outside forces triggered, capitalized upon or magnified the economic difficulties of 2008,” the report says, explaining that those domestic economic factors would have caused a “normal downturn” but not the “near collapse” of the global economic system that took place.

Suspects include financial enemies in Middle Eastern states, Islamic terrorists, hostile members of the Chinese military, or government and organized crime groups in Russia, Venezuela or Iran. Chinese military officials publicly have suggested using economic warfare against the U.S.

The first phase of the economic attack, the report said, was the escalation of oil prices by speculators from 2007 to mid-2008 that coincided with the housing finance crisis. In the second phase, the stock market collapsed by what the report called a “bear raid” from unidentified sources on Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers and other Wall Street firms.
