 ▶ SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD? TRACEABILITY MAKES FOR BETTER PRODUCTS AND A HEALTHY BOTTOM LINE. The environmental benefits of seafood traceability are obvious: By tracking a fish through the entire supply chain – from capture to plate – you can ensure the fish wasn’t caught using illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing practices. But many companies, like Norpac Fisheries Export, are discovering that traceability is also good for their bottom lines... http://www.triplepundit.com/2014/04/making-business-case-seafood-traceability/

 

                               SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD GUIDE
Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch guides provide at-a-glance info on which fish is relatively abundant (ok to eat) and which species are overfished (need to avoid). They also flag types of seafood that contain levels of mercury or PCBs that pose a health risk.

Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, April 18, 1:33 PM

While some details of the fourth draft are still under discussion, it has been agreed that the principle of prioritising the environment above the economy will be enshrined in law, according to scholars who have been involved in the process. The fourth draft is due to be completed within weeks.

"(Upholding) environmental protection as the fundamental principle is a huge change, and emphasises that the environment is a priority," said Cao Mingde, a law professor at the China University of Political Science and Law, who was involved in the drafting process.

Meet Your New Landlord: The Coming Nightmare of a Wall Street Controlled Rental Market

Meet Your New Landlord: The Coming Nightmare of a Wall Street Controlled Rental Market | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

▶ WALL STREET NOW LARGEST OWNER OF SINGLE-FAMILY RENTAL HOMES You may not have heard of the Blackstone Group, but it’s the largest private equity firm in the world. And now it’s become the largest owner of single-family rental homes in the country. Over the last few years, Blackstone and other Wall Street firms have been quietly grabbing up huge swaths of the rental housing market, purchasing more than 200,000 cheap homes, hoping to turn a profit. At one auction in Atlanta, Blackstone swept up 1,400 houses in a single day.   

And as private equity firms gobble up huge swaths of the housing market, they are partnering with big banks to bundle the mortgages on these rental homes into a new financial product known as "rental-backed securities," reminiscent of the "mortgage-backed securities" that helped cause the last financial crisis. http://www.democracynow.org/2014/4/10/wall_streets_land_grab_firms_amass

A DREAM FORECLOSED:  WALL STREET FORECLOSURE BUYBACKS AT FIRESALE PRICES

As President Obama touts the "housing recovery," journalist Laura Gottesdiener examines the devastating legacy of the foreclosure crisis and how much of the so-called recovery is a result of large private equity firms buying up hundreds of thousands of foreclosed homes. More than 10 million people across the country have been evicted from their homes in the last six years. Her new book, "A Dream Foreclosed: Black America and the Fight for a Place to Call Home," focuses on four families who have pushed back against foreclosures. "The banks exploited a larger historical trajectory of discrimination in lending and in housing that has existed since the beginning of this country. The banks intentionally went into communities that had been red-lined, which meant that the Federal Housing Administration had made it a policy to not lend and not to guarantee any loans in minority neighborhoods all throughout most of the 20th century that didn’t supposedly end until well into the 1960s," Gottesdiener says. "And they exploited that historical reality and pushed the worst of the worst loans in these communities that everyone knew were unpayable debts — that Wall Street knew." ... http://www.democracynow.org/2013/8/6/a_dream_foreclosed_as_obama_touts

The Coalition for the Homeless released its 2014 State of the Homeless report today documenting new record levels of homelessness reached in Mayor Bloomberg’s final year in office, with more than 53,000 New Yorkers and 22,000 children sleeping in shelters each night by the end of 2013.  The report also outlines concrete, cost-effective steps the new Administration can take to begin moving families out of the shelter system and prevent New Yorkers from becoming homeless in the first place. http://www.coalitionforthehomeless.org/blog/entry/state-of-the-homeless-2014/

RENT IN A WARMING WORLD. Rent isn’t just the monthly check that tenants write to landlords. Economists use the term “rent seeking” to mean “using political and economic power to get a larger share of the national pie, rather than to grow the national pie,” in the words of Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz, who maintains that such dysfunctional activity has metastasized in the United States alongside deepening inequality.
When rent inspires investment in useful things like housing, it’s productive. The economic pie grows, and the people who pay rent get something in return. When rent leads to investment in unproductive activities, like lobbying to capture wealth without creating it, it’s parasitic. Those who pay get nothing in return. Two other types of rent originate in nature rather than in human investment. Extractive rent and Protective Rent.... http://triplecrisis.com/rent-in-a-warming-world/

Why Choosing Nature Will Only Advance Human Societies | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

 

 April 5, 2013 - LIFEWISE

We all have our opinions, principles and philosophies about life and we must be very careful about infringing on those of others. Every person should be able to follow that inner voice without external influences constantly telling them they’re wrong. However there is one choice we could all make right now that would transform our world to benefit all living things and the Earth itself.

That is, choosing nature and each other above all else. So many of us have been deschooled on this concept that it may take decades for the scales to tip so that we all start respecting our world again.

By embracing Mother Nature, we adopt the foundation of all she has to offer. We understand that she is never mistaken and will always do the right thing for Earth’s inhabitants....if we care for Her as we expect Her to care for us http://southweb.org/lifewise/why-choosing-nature-will-only-advance-human-societies/

According to Žižek ecological apartheid will divide our urban society.

pdjmoo's curator insight, April 5, 2013 8:38 PM

It does not take a Ph.D for commonsense to tell us that without Nature We Do Not Exist.   If we were to foster, nurture and respect our natural world providing Her with Her needs, instead of focusing on ravishing Her for our wants, desires and profits - we would have a much more balanced world emotionally, psychologically and spiritually.   To the degree the natural world is out of balance and "sick" so are we.   To the degree we humans degrade and abuse Her, we degrade and abuse our own human race and all other species within the great web of life.

Let us return to simplicity of reconnecting to the source of our sustenance every moment of every day and let Nature teach us the path back to commonsense and sensibility

-▶ Multinational corporations are seizing and deforesting large tracts of  land in Indonesia. This new "Corporate colonialism" is bringing farmer deaths, poverty, human rights violations and ecological catastrophe to Indonesia with little recourse for the local communities who suffer the effects of projects touted as "growth," the Guardian's John Vidal reports.

 "These developments are classed as 'growth' but what we are seeing is the collapse of communities of fisherfolk or farmers and increasing poverty," he continues.  "We are exchanging biodiversity for monocultures, local economies for global ones, small-scale producers are becoming labourers and community land is becoming corporate. This is the direction we are going."

One problem for communities is the growing number of palm oil plantations, which, Henry Sarigih, founder of the Indonesian Peasant Union, says "has spawned a new poverty and is triggering a crisis of landlessness and hunger."... http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2013/05/26-0

▶ TOXIC TRAIL:  HOW A LANDMARK SUPERFUND CLEANUP PROGRAM LEAVES ITS OWN TOXIC LEGACY.

Below some of the world’s most expensive real estate, in the heart of Silicon Valley, pipes and pumps suck thousands of gallons of contaminated water every hour from vast underground toxic pools.

Giant industrial filters trap droplets of dangerous chemicals at the surface, all in the hope of making the water drinkable again and protecting the workers of tech giants such as Google and Symantec from toxic vapors. Often the original mess is almost untreatable. In Silicon Valley’s case, it would take 700 years of continuous treatment to make the groundwater drinkable. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/ng-interactive/2014/mar/-sp-toxic-waste-silicon-valley-trail

The ruling party, SWAPO has not only committed to filling half of its seats in parliament with women but also committed to what they call a ‘Zebra system’ whereby if a Minister is a woman then the Deputy Minister will be a man and vice versa.

Women make up half the world's population, but don't nearly share half of the world's wealth, well-being and opportunity. Two-thirds of the world poor are women, disproportionally exposing women to precarious living conditions, disease and unmitigated natural disasters. The media, meanwhile, remains a male-dominated sector in much of the world, contributing to women's voices lacking a crucial amplifier to put their concerns on political agendas and unleash the development potential of their ingenuity. Rather than then stereotypical victims of local and global forces, women are also organizer, innovators, conservators and community builders. These are some of their stories.

 ▶  ECO-SPIRITUALITY: TOWARDS A VALUES-BASED ECONOMIC STRUCTURE

Corporate visions of sustainability focus on material prosperity – but leaders must respect the soul as well as the soil, writes Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee...

As our world stumbles to the brink of ecological collapse, the "tipping point" of irreversible climate change, sustainability has become a vital issue. But in order to consider the question of sustainability, it is important to begin with the question: who or what is being sustained?

Does sustainability refer to sustained economic growth, and an environment that is able to maintain the status quo with our energy-intensive, consumer driven needs? Or does sustainability refer to the whole ecosystem, an interconnected web of life with its vast and rich diversity of species? What is the relationship between sustainability and the economy?

                                New York Times, February 25, 2014
  -▶ RETHINKING OUR 'RIGHTS' TO DANGEROUS BEHAVIOURS. In the last few years, it’s become increasingly clear that food companies engineer hyper-processed foods in ways precisely geared to most appeal to our tastes. This technologically advanced engineering is done, of course, with the goal of maximizing profits, regardless of the effects of the resulting foods on consumer health, natural resources, the environment or anything else.
   But the issues go way beyond food, as the City University of New York professor Nicholas Freudenberg discusses in his new book, “Lethal but Legal: Corporations, Consumption, and Protecting Public Health.” Freudenberg’s case is that the food industry is but one example of the threat to public health posed by what he calls “the corporate consumption complex,” an alliance of corporations, banks, marketers and others that essentially promote and benefit from unhealthy lifestyles. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/26/opinion/bittman-rethinking-our-rights-to-dangerous-behaviors.html?smid=fb-share&_r=0

The neighborhood is called Agritopia, and it’s one of a growing number of so-called agrihoods, residential developments where a working farm is the central feature, in the same way that other communities may cluster around a golf course, pool or fitness center. The real estate bust in 2008 halted new construction, but with the recovery, developers are again breaking ground on farm-focused tracts. At least a dozen projects across the country are thriving, enlisting thousands of home buyers who crave access to open space, verdant fields and fresh food... http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/12/dining/farm-to-table-living-takes-root.html?_r=0

 ▶  TURNING THE GLOBAL ECONOMY INTO LOCAL CONNECTED COMMUNITIES.  "We no longer know where our food comes from when it ends up on our plate or where the waste goes when we finish a meal," observes Michelle Long, founder and chief executive of Balle .. Repairing the broken relationships wrought by the combination of economic globalization and corporate giantism is essential. And not only for our economy, which she argues will become more resilient and more productive as it becomes more local (ie boasting shorter supply chains, greater local ownership, closer proximity to the environment, higher socially inclusivity and so forth). But the more connected as individuals we are, she maintains, the happier and more fulfilled we'll be as human beings. http://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/global-economy-connected-communities-local

Capital Homesteading, which is based on binary economics, offers a way out of the quandary, which pits concern for the environment against immediate needs, desires, convenience, and the profit interests of powerful corporations.

As Capital Homesteading takes hold, Americans would not only become stronger consumers and "customers with money" but also gain stronger property interests in the environment and be better able to afford the greener choice.... http://www.nationofchange.org/achieving-green-economy-1373980790

Christian Allié's curator insight, January 18, 12:16 AM

.....""""......

 

[ ............. ]

...................  

CHRIS MARTENSON: But if -- if the choice was, listen, we were going to print up $2.4 trillion, and we were either going give it to the banks or we were going to do something else with it, I think this would be something else.

We will muddle through, but one thing we're not going to muddle through with is an exponential economy that needs more, more, more all the time.

PAUL SOLMAN: Suppose you are wrong about the debt. What evidence would you then offer to suggest that we're not on the right track?

CHRIS MARTENSON: If I had to give just a one-word summary, it's unsustainable.

In my own life, I have cut my standard of living in half. I have doubled my quality of life. I'm not saying everybody should do that or I'm admirable because of it. But I have learned that we can do things far more he efficiently and effectively and have better outcomes. And why wouldn't we do that?

PAUL SOLMAN: In the end, Chris Martenson may be just another economic doomsayer with an enthusiastic online following.

But his popularity and his voicing of the disaffections of Americans right and left alike suggest he may instead be a wishful throwback to the American tradition of simple self-reliance in the face of an ever more complex, impersonal global economy, an economy that could turn out to be unsustainable.

...especially in the medical patient context,” Raber said. “These are people that are immunocompromised, they're undergoing chemotherapy, they're very sick with antibacterial loads. We can't be subjecting them to more of these types of potentially harmful contaminants when they're looking to this as a medicine source.”  http://www.times-standard.com/localnews/ci_24628828/what-are-you-smoking-study-finds-pesticides-transfer

Wonder Why Marijuana Laws Are Passing So Quickly Across the USA and the World. It's Not For Your Health.  And It's Not About the Drug Wars. It's about the repeat of ending "prohibition" and restructuring wealth. Big politics and "Legal" Money is involved here to capture, control and profit from this new market. The Cartels and Multi-National Corporations Have Control of a global agricultural Industry,  already in place: from owning the land, to growing the crops, patenting new genetically engineered seeds, owning the pesticides and marketing systems

"Wonder Why Marijuana Laws Are Passing So Quickly Across the USA and the World. It's Not For Your Health. And It's Not About the Drug Wars. It's about the repeat of ending "prohibition" and restructuring wealth. Big politics and "Legal" Money is involved here to capture, control and profit from this new market. The Cartels and Multi-National Corporations Have Control of a global agricultural Industry, already in place: from owning the land, to growing the crops, patenting new genetically engineered seeds, owning the pesticides and marketing .. and we're right back to toxic smoking and ill-health. Nothing new here."

Christina Bryant's curator insight, April 7, 2:03 AM

This article speaks about how Colorado, particularly Denver, believes that there will be a marijuana shortage now that marijuana has been legalized. This article goes into depth about how there will be a shortage in the short run, but eventually the supply and demand should come to an equilibrium.

▶ TIME TO TRANSFORM?

It has become patently clear to many that business is undergoing a metamorphosis. Due to a perfect storm of social, economic and environmental factors, organizations have little option other than to seek out opportunities in these volatile times, adapt and evolve to what the book The Nature of Business refers to as “firms of the future” – businesses more akin to living organisms than mechanistic monoliths designed for the Industrial Era. These firms of the future can take inspiration from nature at all levels within their strategies and operations.

▶ BEYOND 'BUSINESS-AS-USUAL': THE CRISIS OF CIVILISATION IS AN UNPRECEDENTED OPPORTUNITY

The Converging climate, energy, and economic crises. Importantly, that's not to say that we're all doomed. Far from it: while the crisis of civilisation shows that business-as-usual is not sustainable - and could at worst lead to an uninhabitable planet by the end of this century based on the consensus science projections - I've argued that we are already in the midst of a process of civilisational transition which offers unprecedented opportunities to re-envision new forms of prosperity that can function in harmony with our environment, rather than in conflict with it.   http://www.theguardian.com/environment/earth-insight/2013/sep/24/crisis-civilisation-unprecedented-opportunity-transition

    6,000 violations, violations over 300 state-issued permits, hundreds of streams, tributaries and rivers, 79 active coal mines, 25 coal processing plants, where they put the coal and wash it before it’s shipped, over five Appalachian states. So it’s a pretty massive coverage area for the settlement.

"Guardianship is a word that rings out in my head. We are meant to be guardians and trustees of this planet.

PUTTING PEOPLE AND COMMUNITY BEFORE CORPORATE PROFITS
Big business wants to control our resources--grabbing land, privatizing water, patenting seeds, and trying to squeeze out anyone who gets in the way of their profits. Fortunately, there is an alternative that places the rights of people and communities ahead of corporate interests--resource rights. http://www.grassrootsonline.org/issues/resource-rights

However for the past 100 years we've made a tremendous impact with our footprint due to the growth of world population and the industrialization of our everyday life. Economy, profit and capitalization became more important than respecting our planet and an ancient knowledge to advance a new way of life. http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/inside-garbage-world/

        HOW FINANCIAL DEREGULATION IS DESTROYING THE WORLD

                      Rolling Stone, Matt Tabbi, February 12, 2014

  Banks are no longer just financing heavy industry. They are actually buying it up and inventing bigger, bolder and scarier scams than ever.

   Today, banks like Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs own oil tankers, run airports and control huge quantities of coal, natural gas, heating oil, electric power and precious metals. They likewise can now be found exerting direct control over the supply of a whole galaxy of raw materials crucial to world industry and to society in general, including everything from food products to metals like zinc, copper, tin, nickel and, most infamously thanks to a recent high-profile scandal, aluminum. And they're doing it not just here but abroad as well: In Denmark, thousands took to the streets in protest in recent weeks, vampire-squid banners in hand, when news came out that Goldman Sachs was about to buy a 19 percent stake in Dong Energy, a national electric provider. The furor inspired mass resignations of ministers from the government's ruling coalition, as the Danish public wondered how an American investment bank could possibly hold so much influence over the state energy grid.

                                              Wall Street's War

   But banks aren't just buying stuff, they're buying whole industrial processes. They're buying oil that's still in the ground, the tankers that move it across the sea, the refineries that turn it into fuel, and the pipelines that bring it to your home. Then, just for kicks, they're also betting on the timing and efficiency of these same industrial processes in the financial markets – buying and selling oil stocks on the stock exchange, oil futures on the futures market, swaps on the swaps market, etc.

    But those are purely financial schemes. In these new, even scarier kinds of manipulations, banks that own whole chains of physical business interests have been caught rigging prices in those industries.

 -▶  INDIA IS THE FIRST COUNTRY TO PASS A CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY LAW  requiring larger companies to spend 2 percent of each year's profit on those kinds of initiatives. The law kicks in for companies with a profit of at least $80 million over the past three years....  The law requires large Indian firms to spend a portion of their profits on sustainability initiatives, such as solar panels. http://www.greenbiz.com/blog/2013/08/20/india-passes-worlds-first-corporate-responsibility-law

 -▶  EUROPE PASSES HISTORIC LAW:  BIG CORPORATIONS MUST REPORT ON SUSTAINABILITY. This is a historic day in Europe, where a new law will require its biggest companies to include sustainability factors as part of their annual financial report. In a 599-55 vote, the European Parliament passed the law, which applies to publicly-traded with more than 500 employees. They must address "policies, risks and results" in relation to "social, environmental and human rights impact, diversity and anti-corruption policies" in their annual report. http://www.sustainablebusiness.com/index.cfm/go/news.display/id/25651

 -▶  CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY:  SHOULD IT BE LAW? 

India is the first country to have corporate social responsibility (CSR ) legislation, mandating that companies give 2% of their net profits to charitable causes. Innovative?  Perhaps on a policy level.  But some small-medium size enterprises within India have already embedded social impact into their company ethos.

The new CSR law is a massive 294-page act that requires companies to set up a CSR board committee, allocate 2% of net profits in the last three years to CSR, and be reviewed at the end of each financial year by the board’s director to ensure compliance... http://www.forbes.com/sites/eshachhabra/2014/04/18/corporate-social-responsibility-should-it-be-a-law/

The Companies Act mandates CSR activities for both Indian companies and foreign companies registered in India. In addition, the new rule also requires involvement of senior level staff as well as mandatory disclosure of these activities and the creation of: http://www.csrwire.com/blog/posts/1290-the-birth-of-a-new-ecosystem-india-s-mandatory-csr-rule-becomes-a-reality

-▶  A COLLECTION OF STWR RESOURCES ON THE SHARING ECONOMY

There are both reasons for optimism as well as caution about the current development of the sharing economy. On the one hand, its gradual political evolution suggests that the ethic of sharing is set to become increasingly essential and popular in the years ahead, especially in the wake of continuing economic crises and the collapsing model of debt-fuelled over-consumption. 

     On the other hand, however, there are already signs that the sharing economy is being co-opted by purely commercial interests and stripped of its transformative potential as an answer to gross inequality, ecological destruction, the lack of true democracy, and almost every other progressive cause. 

     For this reason, STWR has published various resources over recent months and years that outline how authentic forms of sharing relate to the political and economic challenges of the 21st century... http://www.sharing.org/information-centre/articles/collection-stwr-resources-sharing-economy?dm_i=M4P,2IZXQ,E854AO,97N3S,1

 

The Guardian, June 1, 2014
THE OPEN SOURCE REVOLUTION IS COMING AND IT WILL CONQUER THE 1% - EX CIA SPY. 

Today's capitalism, he argues, is inherently predatory and destructive: "Over the course of the last centuries, the commons was fenced, and everything from agriculture to water was commoditised without regard to the true cost in non-renewable resources. Human beings, who had spent centuries evolving away from slavery, were re-commoditised by the Industrial Era."

Open source everything, in this context, offers us the chance to build on what we've learned through industrialisation, to learn from our mistakes, and catalyse the re-opening of the commons, in the process breaking the grip of defunct power structures and enabling the possibility of prosperity for all.

"Sharing, not secrecy, is the means by which we realise such a lofty destiny as well as create infinite wealth. The wealth of networks, the wealth of knowledge, revolutionary wealth - all can create a nonzero win-win Earth that works for one hundred percent of humanity. This is the 'utopia' that Buckminster Fuller foresaw, now within our reach."

-▶ WHY SAVING THE PLANET IS NO LONGER THE WORK OF POLITICAL LEADERS: AN URGENT COLLABORATIVE TASK AHEAD

Why saving the planet is no longer the work of political leaders -

From states to citizens, everyone has a stake in overcoming the inertia that surrounds decisive action on sustainability...

With the collapse of intergovernmental and global processes, it is becoming increasingly apparent that we now must use new mechanisms that bring businesses and communities together. For these to succeed, we need new ways to define and measure our goals and achievements. Saving the planet is no longer the work of political leaders, but an opportunity for managers, CEOs, accountants and activists to devise collaborative solutions.... there must be measurable goals and a new mechanism for accountability.

No longer is conventional CSR reporting adequate to the task. New accounting methods, as Rio's Declaration on Natural Capital begins to define, must be put in place....

We're living on a beautiful planet and as a human race we've been here for thousands of years. Our planet didn't need to be protected; life was flourishing on its own, with its own agenda. However for the past 100 years we've made a tremendous impact with our footprint due to the growth of world population and the industrialization of our everyday life. Economy, profit and capitalization became more important than respecting our planet and an ancient knowledge to advance a new way of life. http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/inside-garbage-world/

 Oakland Institute , February 18, 2014

▶ DOWN ON THE FARM: The first years of the twenty-first century will be remembered for a global land rush of nearly unprecedented scale. An estimated 500 million acres, an area eight times the size of Britain, was reported bought or leased across the developing world between 2000 and 2011, often at the expense of local food security and land rights. When the price of food spiked in 2008, pushing the number of hungry people in the world to over one billion, the interest of investors spiked as well, and within a year foreign land deals in the developing world rose by a staggering 200 percent. Today, enthusiasm for agriculture borders on speculative mania. Driven by everything from rising food prices to growing demand for biofuel, the financial sector is taking an interest in farmland as never before. As the Oakland Institute reported in 2012, a new generation of institutional investors—including hedge funds, private equity, pension funds, and university endowments—is eager to capitalize on global farmland as a new and highly desirable asset class... http://www.oaklandinstitute.org/down-on-the-farm

Environmental Health News, February 12, 2014

  -▶ CORPORATIONS, INVESTORS GRABBING LAND AND WATER OVERSEAS. As a growing population stresses the world's food and water supplies, corporations and investors in wealthy countries are buying up foreign farmland and the freshwater perks that come with it. From Sudan to Indonesia, most of the land lies in poverty-stricken regions, so experts warn that this widespread purchasing could expand the gap between developed and developing countries. The “water grabbing” by corporations amounts to 454 billion cubic meters per year globally, according to a new study by environmental scientists. That’s about 5 percent of the water the world uses annually. For countries reliant on farming and already suffering from poverty, the potential impacts are huge, said Paolo D’Odorico, a University of Virginia professor. “In many of these countries, the sum of the water being grabbed would be enough to eliminate malnourishment,” he said. Some of the more active buyers in the United States, which leads the pack in number of deals, include multinational investors Nile Trading and Development, BHP Billiton, Unitech and media magnate Ted Turner, according to the researchers. Most purchasers are agricultural, biofuel and timber investors. http://www.environmentalhealthnews.org/ehs/news/2013/land-grabbing

The institution that would best exemplify corporate colonialism is Goldman Sachs. This became all too apparent in the 2008-2009 financial crisis. Goldman Sachs has its thumb on Washington, Wall Street, Main Street, America's heartland, America's forestland, the IMF, the World Bank, China, Russia, and the list goes on. The ruling elite answers to Goldman Sachs.

-▶  To build a successful economy of enough, we would first need to eliminate the "growth imperative"—...

.....The thinking is that if we could just get people to produce and consume more stuff, then we could also pay off the debt, create jobs, eradicate poverty, and maybe even have some money left over to clean up the environment.

It's tempting to believe this economic fairy tale.  But if growth is the cure to all of our ills, why are we in such a bind after sixty years of it?  Even though the U.S. economy has more than tripled in size since 1950, surveys indicate that people have not become any happier.  Inequality has risen sharply in recent years, and jobs are far from secure.  At the same time, increased economic activity has led to greater resource use, dangerous levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and declining biodiversity.  There is now strong evidence that economic growth has become uneconomic in the sense that it costs more than it's worth.

Maybe it's time to consider a new strategy—an economy of enough http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/02/25-1

                                    Published on Mar 25, 2014

                 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_AMEAnWyRk

Our politicians are hung up on keeping the growth curve rising. But does GDP really tell us all we need to know about a country's wealth and well-being? In this new RSA Short, Kate Raworth makes a powerful argument to look beyond economic growth alone for a true measure of prosperity and progress.
    Kate Raworth is a renegade economist teaching at Oxford University, and is focused on the rewriting of economics to make it a fit tool for addressing the 21st century's social and ecological challenges. She blogs on Doughnut Economics at http://www.kateraworth.com and tweets @KateRaworth

-▶  DO WE NEED RELENTLESS, ENDLESS ECONOMIC GROWTH?
Critics question desirability of relentless economic growth. Ecologists warn that economic growth is strangling the natural systems on which life depends, creating not just wealth, but filth on a planetary scale. Carbon pollution is changing the climate. Water shortages, deforestation, tens of millions of acres of land too polluted to plant, and other global environmental ills are increasingly viewed as strategic risks by governments and corporations around the world.
   "The physical pressure that human activities put on the environment can't possibly be sustained," said Stanford University ecologist Gretchen Daily, who is at the forefront of efforts across the world to incorporate "natural capital," the value of such things as water, topsoil and genetic diversity that nature provides, into economic decision-making. ... http://www.sfgate.com/default/article/Critics-question-desirability-of-relentless-5114217.php

To ease the burden on medical staff, Japanese hospitals and retirement homes have opened their doors to humanoids to fill the gap left by a growing shortage of manpower.

It's no secret that Japan is facing a demographic crisis. Its population is aging and its birth rate is on the decline. The Japanese government admits it doesn't have enough nurses to care for the one in four people aged over 65, a ratio that will only increase in the next few decades. http://www.france24.com/en/2014-05-25-1915-down-earth-robot-japan-elderly-care-health-palro-humanoid/

Robots should seen be seen as taking over some human jobs. Such as taxi drivers or doctors. It will prove to be much more efficient, for example a robot taxi driver could calculate the fastest route to your destination including traffic jams and traffic lights.
