Uncaged Inflation Is a Beast That's Easy to Free, Hard to Control:Bloomberg News Editorial Sept 1/11
http://robertede.blogspot.com/2011/09/uncaged-inflation-is-beast-thats-easy.html
 
"Inflation decreases the value of debts, like the $14 trillion owed by the federal government to lenders such as the government of China (and a lot of ordinary American savers, too), and it increases the value of assets, like houses. Thus it helps all debtors, from the federal government to individual homeowners who can't pay their mortgages."

Subject: Rich can be rich only if society allows them and bankrupt America should see why booming China raising taxes

The Editor
Financial Post
 
Copy to: Prof. George Bragues, Program Head of Buniness at the University of Guelph-Humber, Toronto: Rich and wealthy pay higher taxes because society allows them to become rich. In the totalitarian Soviet union, where all means of production were controlled by the state, the government didn't need any tax and as such, it was a tax-free "paradise."
 
Rich can be rich only if society allows them and bankrupt U.S. should see why booming China raising taxes
 
Re "Voters and debt," by George Bragues (Sept. 1).
 
Prof Breagues may be reminded that the rich can be rich only if society allows them to be rich. As such, they must pay taxes at a higher rate for enjoying that privilege and also they have the capability to pay more. When all means of production were controlled by the state in China, no one was rich. But since China embraced the market, it is now full of millionaires. And China has also been raising taxes to finance essential public services.
 
Recently, I returned from a month-long visit to Shanghai, Beijing and other cities of China. It has been a rewarding experience to see a vast country on the march. With its Maglev (magnetically-levitated) trains running at a breakneck speed of 430 kilometers per hour, Shanghai looks like a city of the future. China's highways and expressways are filled with late-model cars and China has already overtaken the United States as the world's largest market for cars. While the United States slowly recovers from the recession, China is growing at an amazing rate of 9.5 per cent. As Financial Times columnist Martin Wolf noted: "The West's reputation for financial and economic competence is in tatters, while that of China has soared."
 
I witnessed China's industrial might while visting Shanghai's huge container port -- the world's largest. As far as the eye can see, ships of all sizes were loading and unloading containers (mostly loading). It was an intimidating demonstration of China's industrial clout. China has also surpassed the U.S. as the world's greatest trading nation. In fact, China is now bankrolling America's trillion-dollar budget deficit.
 
China is also on the way to bypassing America as the centre for research and development (R&D). While a bankrupt America is finding it difficult to provide the financial resources needed for research, China is targeting a number of critical areas of science where it intends to be among the world's leaders. Dr. Jing Naihe, director of Shanghai Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, said that "our top stem cell labs are among the world's best" and "in ten years, we should be at the top." While, facing a financial crunch, the U.S. is winding down its space program, China is expanding its own space program. China has already sent astronauts into space and is gearing up for robotic and manned missions to the moon and beyond. Top Chinese scientists working abroad are returning to China because it now has the resources to provide them with first class facilities. Once long ago, America used to be a magnet for such talents.
 
Shanghai has also become a center for arts and culture. This is extraordinary for a city that once denounced art as a capitalistic pursuit. Not any more. With reform, Shanghai has exploded with vitality and creativity. Here one can see the most avant-guard art. In Shanghai Art Gallery, I saw most original and astounding artworks -- from sublime to bizarre. Shanghai Museum is another wonder, displaying China's rich history in most vivid colors. 
 
Interestingly, while bankrupt U.S. is cutting taxes, booming China has raised corporate taxes. As of Dec.1, 2010, it began to charge foreign firms higher taxes to help finance local city maintenance, construction and schools. Earlier, the government put into place an array of policies, including hefty tax breaks, to attract foreign investment and foreign firms were charged 15 per cent, while domestic businesses paid 33 per cent. Now both will pay the higher rate. Depite tax hikes, foreign firms say they would invest more in China.
 
"At any rate, we cannot resist the temptation of China, because it is such a strong economy with relatively cheaper labor costs and huge markets, while few other countries have such advantages," said Takeshi Uragami, general manager of Japan's Panasonic Corporation in China. Uragami said in 2011, his company plans to conduct part of its product design in China.
 
Booming China shows that the United States, facing financial bankruptcy, should raise taxes on the rich to rein in deficit without undermining its crumbling public services. The present debt crisis stems from America's inability to raise enough revenues to pay its bills. However, America's super-rich are quite willing to pay higher taxes to rein in the budget deficit without undermining the crumbling public services.
 
As Warren Buffet, one of America's richest men, recently wrote: "While the poor and middle class fight for us in Afghanistan and while most Americans struggle to make ends meet, we mega-rich continue to get our extraordinary tax breaks. ... These and other blessings are showered upon us by legislators in Washington who feel compelled to protect us, as if we were spotted owls or some other endangered species." Buffet rightly called for increasing taxes on the rich to balance the budget and pay for essential services --- shore up Social Security and Medicare, beef up defence, pay for the rest of the services, from highways to Head Start, that the public has rightly come to expect. Unless right-minded Americans stand up to the Tea Party extremists and their opposition to raising taxes, America's decline will be unstoppable.

THE ROVING EYE
It's a TOTAL war, monsieur
By Pepe Escobar
...
Transitional National Council (TNC) interim prime minister Mahmoud Jibril asserted, "The world bet on the Libyans and the Libyans showed their courage and made their dream real." "World" now means NATO and a bunch of regressive Persian Gulf monarchies. As for the rest, shut up.

Yet the most sinister, true to character, must have been NATO secretary general Anders Fogh Rasmussen; "We have no plans whatsoever to intervene in conflicts in the region."    Then came the inevitable "but". Rasmussen added,    "But more generally speaking, I think this could set a template. We have demonstrated an ability to act in support of the United Nations and we have demonstrated an ability to include partners outside NATO in such operations". ...

30,000 Bombs On Libya
http://www.rense.com/general94/30000.htm

Mr Harper, Mr MacKenzie--I have no doubt that you will never see this message but I had to send it anyway.  Mr. Harper--you were in Italy stating what a great job we are doing bombing (oops--saving) the people of Libya.  Bombing their food and water, hospitals and everything they need to survive certainly sounds 'humanitarian' to me.  God help us if you ever see the need to deliver humanitarian aid to Canada.  I have to ask if Canada got any of the spoils of a destroyed Libya when you were discussing that in Paris?  Did we get enough to make us forget the genocide we have in bombing we have led?

Libya had a great society that was governed for the people, not the elite.  They had free healthcare(even outside the country), free education right through University, and they even got money from the oil production.  I can see why the governments of 'democracy' would not want that to happen in our country. That would cut back on their 'entitlements?

I am ashamed of Canada and your comments.  You may believe that everyone out here is a puppet like you, but we are not.  We know wrong when we see it.  Our actions in Afghanistan were reprehensible but our destruction of a great country for our own greed for power is beyond the pale.  I thought we had gone as low as we could go but then I read your words to the troops in Italy.  Reality is no longer part of our world--lies have trumped truth.  God help us all.
