How We Choose Our Political Leaders Tells the World a Lot About Us

How We Choose Our Political Leaders Tells the World a Lot About Us | "GE" | Global Economy - Küresel Ekonomi | Scoop.it

Danny Quah suggests that we are far more accepting of unrepresentative leaders when it comes to global governance than domestic politics.

What if a society decided its governing leaders must be chosen only from the richest and most powerful of its families? What if those political leaders held status and wealth, not only already greater but growing faster than that for anybody else in that society? What if, even though they wielded unrivalled influence, those leaders installed armed guards on every strategic street corner? What if those leaders operated with no counterbalancing competition, no checks and balances?

The Whole Economy Is Rife with Ponzi Schemes

The Whole Economy Is Rife with Ponzi Schemes | "GE" | Global Economy - Küresel Ekonomi | Scoop.it
Many ordinary business practices resemble the infamous con game

 

The Ponzi scheme has been a recurring fixture of economic life in rich and poor nations at least since the 19th century, creating a few millionaires and ruining the lives of millions. Yet most people have only a vague idea of what they are, which may explain why so many continue to fall for their strange and almost mystical allure. This topic, of course, has acquired a certain urgency because of the recent global financial crisis and headlines about the Bernard Madoff scandal, the biggest ever Ponzi scam, which occurred at the height of the turmoil.

 

Anyone who followed the Madoff debacle probably thinks about Ponzis as being deliberately concocted frauds. Instead of using investor money to fund a productive business venture, the con artist channels the proceeds from new investors to pay interest to earlier ones. But economists have started to realize that this type of behavior can also occur spontaneously, even unconsciously, simply by having one expectation feed on another, creating a frenzy of speculation, an inflating economic bubble that is doomed to eventually crash.

Eli Levine's curator insight, June 25, 11:10 AM

So basically, we don't produce as much as we did.  All the profits from the companies seem to have been shunted into the banks where it accumulates wealth upon itself without actually generating any value for the actual economy or the society in which the profits are being realized.

 

In order to have growth in an economy, you need to do more than simply have earned net profit accumulate more profit upon itself.  You've got to pay out that wealth to workers who will then go out and spend the money that they earn on goods and services, which will then create a feedback loop, provided that workers are continuously paid according to how much profit they produce through their labor.  I'm for a minimum wage, but not a living minimum wage.  I'm for profit sharing, such that the larger companies who employ most of the people in the economy and generate the most amount of profit have to kick chunks of that extra wealth down to their workers rather than simply allow things to accumulate at the top.  Trickle down is absolute bunk empirically, I don't know how it is that we still use that as a model (except for the fact that Liberal and Conservative elites have been co-opted into the Capitalist circles of wealth, power, and corruption.

 

You want to see real growth; the production of real well being?  Try paying your workers more than sub-subsistence wages when they produce massive amounts of profit.  Then, watch what happens.

 

Stupid, corrupt economists.  Idiot corrupt politicians and policy-makers.

 

Think about it.

Since the 1930s, U.S. G.D.P. has grown, in real terms, by a factor of sixteen. Why hasn’t that wealth translated into more leisure time?

 

Once, we were warned about a future of overabundant leisure. Now we’re busy complaining about being busier than ever.
