Nino Galloni - Come ci hanno deindustrializzato MESSORA: Nino Galloni, economista, ex direttore del Ministero del Lavoro; uno che di cose in questo paese ne ha viste tante. Nino, buongiorno. GALLONI: Buongiorno! MESSORA: Benvenuto su, a queste interviste volute dalla rete. GALLONI: Credo che la data dalla quale dobbiamo necessariamente partire sia il 1947, quando al Trattato di Parigi De Gasperi cede una parte della nostra sovranità, ma in cambio ottiene il riassetto di certi equilibri. MESSORA: gli Stati Uniti hanno avuto un bel ruolo in questa decisione. GALLONI: Gli Stati Uniti hanno avuto un bel ruolo perché chiaramente gli aiuti del Piano Marshall erano condizionati all’uscita dei comunisti dal governo. Ma torniamo all’industria. MESSORA: Negli anni ’70 eravamo all’apice. GALLONI: All’apice. MESSORA: Cioè noi stavamo raggiungendo e superando le altre economie avanzate. Ma questo è un quadro teorico. MESSORA: Spieghiamolo bene. GALLONI: c’entra! MESSORA: Quindi le Brigate Rosse in realtà avevano avuto un ruolo… GALLONI: Sì.

S. LA bans new stand-alone fast food eateries | abc7 EXPOSITION PARK, Calif. (KABC) -- New stand-alone fast food restaurants have been banned from setting up shop in South Los Angeles, due to rising health concerns by the city council. How many fast food eateries does one area really need? The Los Angeles City Council thinks South Los Angeles and South East Los Angeles need new choices as these regions face an over-concentration of such restaurants. "This is not an attempt to control people as to what they can put into their mouths. Perry's new plan bans new so-called "stand alone" fast food restaurants opening within half a mile of existing restaurants. Such stand-alone establishments are on their own property, but those same restaurants are OK if they're a part of a strip mall, according to the new rules. "Give a grocery store and a housing combination a chance to come in," Perry said. Residents had mixed reactions to the new plan. "People don't need to be told what to eat or what they want to eat.

Amato; sapevamo che l'Euro sarebbe fallito... HEAT WAVE: THE NATION; In Chicago, Week of Swelter Leaves an Overflowing Morgue They came like a parade of death: police truck after police truck, delivering the bodies to the Cook County morgue, until finally there was no more room for the dead. Wicked heat is being blamed for hundreds of deaths across the eastern half of the country, and perhaps 300 deaths in Chicago alone, said Edmund Donoghue, the medical examiner for Cook County, where refrigerated trucks are being used to store the overflow from the morgue. "I've never seen anything like this in my life," said Dr. Donoghue. "We're overwhelmed." The temperature hovered near 100 for most of the week in Chicago, peaking at 106 degrees on Thursday, and the humidity was extremely high. Temperatures fell to the low 90's by Saturday, and were expected to moderate early in the week. Elsewhere scores of deaths were attributed to the heat wave, which brought temperatures of 109 degrees in Omaha on Wednesday, 104 in Toledo, Ohio, on Friday and 106 in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., on Saturday.

Gerald Celente - WHDT World News - July 11, 2013 Hot Dog Nights JAMAICA PLAIN, Mass. — Some neighbors in Jamaica Plain without a lot in common have found a way to get along. On one side of South Street live white collar professionals; on the other, low income people in a housing project. Bridging the divide are hot dogs. VOICE: Hey you guys there’s hot dogs! MONICA BRADY-MYEROV: About a dozen kids and adults line up before a folding table packed with dogs, buns, chips and sides. NATALIE TERRERO: What do you want with it? MONICA BRADY-MYEROV: Terrero says she’s been coming to these weekly cookouts every Tuesday since she can remember and now she’s old enough to help. NATALIE TERRERO: I’m helping to do the hot dog night because I would love to volunteer. MONICA BRADY-MYEROV: The South Street housing development is made up of squat three story brick buildings and concrete courtyards. But when they do, they get a hot dog and a hello from a woman with short grey hair in dreadlocks. MONICA BRADY-MYEROV: Hot dog night appears to be unique.

Zeit Spot #5 - La vera origine della crisi mondiale 10 Signs We Live in a False Economy It’s time to admit that we live in a false economy. Smoke and mirrors are used to make us believe the economy is real, but it’s all an elaborate illusion. Out of one side of the establishment’s mouth we hear excitement about “green shoots”, and out of the other side comes breathless warnings of fiscal cliffs and the urgent need for unlimited bailouts by the Fed. We hear the people begging for jobs and the politicians promising them, but politicians can’t create jobs. The corporate media does their best to distract us from seeing anything real. Meanwhile the financial media makes the economy seem complicated and they ban anyone who speaks truthfully about the economy from their airwaves. Is it any wonder why people are angry and confused about the economy? Well, hopefully these signs that we live in a false economy will help clear up some of that confusion. 1. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Americans swiped their credit cards more often in October and borrowed more to attend school and buy cars. 9.

Don’t Trust Your Stone Age Brain: It’s Unsustainable Cognitive dissonance is that uncomfortable feeling we have when we know we should invest in solar panels but the 46″ wide screen TV wins out; we know we should catch the bus but we take the car anyway. It’s that sense of discord that arises when emotion and reason don’t get along. And unfortunately, it’s alive and well, sabotaging the climate change debate. We’ve evolved to feel a single sense of self, but our minds consist of multiple voices. Unfortunately our emotional brain is encouraging us to pursue perceived self-interest even if that means trashing the planet. If we are to have any chance of a future we need to understand why our intuitions are so poor, and how we might temper them by engaging our ability to reason. We haven’t evolved to be successful in the modern world. Evolution didn’t care about the future; it was simply driven by those who survived and left the most descendants. So if we evolved to exploit nature, and to be blind to the consequences, what now?

Michio Kaku: What does the future look like? - SSHF Passaparola - Il sipario del grande silenzio - Silvano Agosti AUTOMATION IS HERE Economists forecast the end of growth | Nafeez Ahmed | Environment The last few weeks has seen bad news for the global economy, with the US and Europe facing growth slowdowns, and even much vaunted economic powerhouses Brazil, Russia, India and China faltering unexpectedly. While mainstream economists continue to predict an ongoing 'recovery', other leading experts point to the end of growth as we know it for the foreseeable future. Earlier this month, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) slashed its quarterly forecasts for global GDP growth from 3.3% to 3.1%, and revised down growth estimates for other major powers. The US forecast was downgraded from 1.9% to 1.7%, and Europe is expected to contract 0.6% rather than the originally estimated 0.3%. The IMF also downgraded growth forecasts for 2014. Against this background, evidence has emerged that the era of booming economic growth is over, and that we are entering an age of permanently slow growth - at best. Study author US economist Prof Robert J Gordon of Northeastern University concludes: He argued:
