This is what the EU economy will look like in 30 years' time – and it's not a pretty picture

This is what the EU economy will look like in 30 years' time – and it's not a pretty picture | SteveB's Politics & Economy Scoops | Scoop.it
There will, whatever the British electorate decides this month, still be a European economy, just as there will still be a UK one. But how is the European economy likely to perform over the next 20 or 30 years? Is there anything sensible that can be said about that? There are two questions here. One is whether the Eurozone is performing to its potential now. The other is what are its long-term prospects? The first is relatively easy to answer: no, it isn’t, but it may improve from now on. The second is much harder.

#Coup in #Brazil how the #US #blackops helped #Lerner and corrupt #Senate to "impeach" her

#Coup in #Brazil how the #US #blackops helped #Lerner and corrupt #Senate to "impeach" her | SteveB's Politics & Economy Scoops | Scoop.it
Following the Senate coup against Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff and installation of right-wing vice president Michel Temer, the coup plotters' agenda has become clear. The Temer administration is now in the midst of an all-out attack on the country's most progressive social and political achievements, with an all-white, all-male cabinet that is absolutely hostile to the social movements and minority groups of Brazil. Rousseff's 2014 re-election marked the fourth consecutive victory for the Workers Party, a fact that did not sit well with the country's right-wing politicians,who immediately started to conspire against the president. That is why her supporters see the impeachment as an effort to retroactively win the election through non-democratic means.
