BrainNet: A multi-person brain-to-brain interface for direct collaboration between brains "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

https://arxiv.org/abs/1809.08632

We present BrainNet which, to our knowledge, is the first multi-person non-invasive direct brain-to-brain interface for collaborative problem solving. The interface combines electroencephalography (EEG) to record brain signals and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to deliver information noninvasively to the brain. The interface allows three human subjects to collaborate and solve a task using direct brain-to-brain communication. Two of the three subjects are Senders whose brain signals are decoded using real-time EEG data analysis to extract decisions about whether to rotate a block in a Tetris-like game before it is dropped to fill a line. The Senders decisions are transmitted via the Internet to the brain of a third subject, the Receiver, who cannot see the game screen. The decisions are delivered to the Receivers brain via magnetic stimulation of the occipital cortex. The Receiver integrates the information received and makes a decision using an EEG interface about either turning the block or keeping it in the same position. A second...

The CIA in league with the Democratic Party Is Moving to Take Control of the House of Representatives

An extraordinary number of former intelligence and military operatives from the CIA, Pentagon, National Security Council and State Department are seeking nomination as Democratic candidates for Congress in the 2018 midterm elections. The potential influx of military-intelligence personnel into the legislature has no precedent in US political history.

If the Democrats capture a majority in the House of Representatives on November 6, as widely predicted, candidates drawn from the military-intelligence apparatus will comprise as many as half of the new Democratic members of Congress. They will hold the balance of power in the lower chamber of Congress.

Is the Greatest Bull Market Ever Finally Ending? (Hint: Follow the Money) "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The key here is the gains generated by owning US-denominated assets as the USD appreciates.
Is the Greatest Bull Market Ever finally ending? One straightforward approach to is to follow the money, i.e. global capital flows: assets that attract positive global capital flows will continue rising if demand for the assets exceeds supply, and assets that are being liquidated as capital flees the asset class (i.e. negative capital flows) will decline in price.
Global capital flows are difficult to track for a number of reasons. A significant percentage of global mobile capital is held in secretive offshore tax havens and "shadow banking," and tracking global corporate capital flows is not easy. Capital held in precious metals may not be reported, and assets such as enterprises and collectible art may be grossly undervalued for tax purposes.
Toss in shadow holding companies, LLCs with obscure trails of ownership, etc. and a definitive account of global capital flows is ultimately a guesstimate.

If It Feels Like Capitalism is Killing YouThats Because It is

What American Collapse Teaches Us About Capitalism (and Fascism)

Its become something of a global urban legend. People in other countries ask me, often, aghast, curious: do Americans really sometimes have to choose between medicine and food and shelter? I cant believe it! Is it true? I nod, having had acquaintances whove made just that choice. But now we know a hard number42% of Americans who get cancer will go bankrupt as a result. A shocking, bizarre, and horrific fact of daily American lifeyet somehow also totally unsurprising.

About half of Americans will face the gruesome choiceyour money, or your life. If that reminds you of being mugged for your life savings at gunpoint, youre not wrong. And yet its just one grim daily reality among many, all of which can be summed up this way.

If it feels like capitalisms killing youthats because it is. (No, youre not alone.) Now, I dont mean mom-and-pop soda shoppe capitalism, I set up a small scale business hoping to earn a decent living doing something interesting and funI mean mega-scale Walmart Wall St capitalism: the predatory kind. Instead of telling the story with statisticswhich in the present case, hide more than they reveal, since those statistics were designed to tell us how ultra-rich capitalists are getting, whether or not the average persons life, democracy, the planet, the old, and the young all burst into roaring flamesIll tell it a different, and to me at least, a truer way.

Imagine the life of an American, somewhere in a rust belt town. How many ways is predatory capitalism killing him? Well, first it took away his livelihood, not just his income, but his means of earning oneand offered him precisely nothing in return. Then it took away his community, his home. With those went his sense of belonging, of mattering, of counting and providing. Maybe, in depression, or despair, or disability, he went to the doctor, who prescribed him opioidscapitalism again. Maybe he went to rehab, now big business. Maybe he ended up in a private prison. Probably, he lost his family, home, belongings, what little savings he had along the way. Perhaps you think Im overstating it. GoodI am, deliberately, a little bit. Lets imagine none of that happened at allinstead, he just got cancer. Bang! He has an even chance of ending up in exactly the same place. Do you see the moral of my story? Let me make it clearer. No exit. All roads lead more or less to the same destination for the average American nownowhere. But what happens to a life that goes nowhere?

Created in 2014, faircoin didn't originate from its current community. Rather, the cryptocurrency was discovered online by anti-capitalist activist Enric Duran, having been abandoned by its original creator (who allegedly created it as a pump-and-dump scheme).

"Faircoin was just another coin somebody made," Sporos told CoinDesk. "Some friends found this abandoned project, they liked the name, they bought the coins from here and there with their money, they acquired 50 million out of 52 million."

Convergence, Big Time "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

In his influential 1997 paper, Divergence, Big Time, Lant Pritchett estimated:

that from 1870 to 1990 the ratio of per capita incomes between the richest and the poorest countries increased by roughly a factor of five and that the difference in income between the richest country and all others has increased by an order of magnitude.

Pritchett was correct but Patel, Sandeful and Subramanian show that just where Pritchetts study ended, convergence began!

While unconditional convergence was singularly absent in the past, there has been unconditional convergence, beginning (weakly) around 1990 and emphatically for the last two decades.

https://www.cgdev.org/sites/default/files/patel-sandefur-subramanian-beta_by_series.png

The figure above plots the coefficient (beta) from the plain vanilla unconditional convergence regression (relating average growth of real per capita GDP over the long run to its initial level). A statistically significant negative beta denotes convergence and divergence otherwise. Since we know from Johnson et al. (2013) that growth rates vary widely across datasets, we plot the annual betas for three such sets: the Penn World Tables (PWT), the World Development Indicators, and the Maddison Project (Bolt et al. 2014).[1] While the point estimates vary across datasets, the consistent pattern across them all is a statistically significant negative beta since around 1995 (unconditional convergence) and its lack prior to that (see also Roy, Kessler and Subramanian, 2016).

Our basic point doesnt require regressions. Looking at the 43 countries the World Bank classified as low income in 1990, 65 percent have grown faster than the high-income average since 1990. The same is true for 82 percent of the 62 middle-income countries circa 1990.

Why intellectuals should not be afraid to like sports "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

That is the topic of my latest Bloomberg column, with a focus on the NBA.  Here is one excerpt:

Earlier three-point innovators were called crazy, and maybe they were. The Phoenix Suns tried a fast-break, three-point offense from 2004 to 2010, and they didnt break through with it. It was persistent foreign competition that finally drove the three points home, when European and other foreign teams, which tended to take more three-point shots, did surprisingly well against U.S. teams in the Olympics. Basketball thus teaches that innovation is not automatic, and it often pays to look abroad for inspiration, even if you are the top performer at any particular moment.

In addition to being a good default conversation topic, sports also keep us in touch with strands of American life that many of us may not encounter otherwise. Following basketball gives me new entry points into rap music, sneaker contracts, college athletics, gifs, the economics of television, even Twitter; it also helped me diagnose an injury a few years ago, when I pulled both of my rotator cuffs and knew immediately how to deal with it. A lot of the American debate over race, and over protest and proper public behavior, has played out through the medium of sports.

By the way, I have no forecasts for the NBA this year other than the trivial.  As for the Lakers and LBJ, I suppose I pick them to come in seventh or so, but to go down in the first round of the playoffs.

Does law and economics matter? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

This paper provides a quantitative analysis of the effects of the law and economics movement on the U.S. judiciary. Using the universe of published opinions in U.S. Circuit Courts and 1 million District Court criminal sentencing decisions linked to judge identity, we estimate the effect of attendance in the controversial Manne economics training program, an intensive two-week course attended by almost half of federal judges. After attending economics training, participating judges use more economics language, render more conservative verdicts in economics cases, rule against regulatory agencies more often, and render longer criminal sentences. These results are robust to adjusting for a wide variety of covariates that predict the timing of attendance. Comparing non-Manne and Manne judges prior to program start and exploiting variation in instructors further assuage selection concerns. Non-Manne judges randomly exposed to Manne peers on previous cases increase their use of economics language in subsequent opinions, suggesting economic ideas diffused throughout the judiciary. Variation in topic ordering finds that economic ideas were portable from regulatory to criminal cases.

That is from Elliott Ash, Daniel L. Chen, and Suresh Naidu, via Rethinking Economics and also S.

Middle East Braces For Apocalyptic Conflict Between Israel And Hamas As Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman Declares War Is Inevitable "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

It appears that a major war between Israel and Hamas is imminent.  For the past six months, Hamas has been staging violent protests along the Israeli border in an attempt to end the Israeli-Egyptian blockade.  Those protests have escalated in recent weeks as Egyptian efforts to broker a long-term ceasefire have faltered.  During these violent protests, large numbers of incendiary devices have been launched into Israel, and this has resulted in thousands of acres of land being burned on the Israeli side of the border.  On Friday, approximately 14,000 Palestinians gathered along the border fence, and it was being reported that they were throwing rocks, firebombs and grenades at Israeli soldiers on the other side of the barrier.  Needless to say, after six months of such violence Israeli patience is wearing very thin.

And now some members of the Israeli cabinet are openly advocating for war with Hamas.  According to the Jerusalem Post, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman believes that a harsh IDF military strike against Hamas is the only way to end the violence

A harsh IDF military strike against Hamas is the only way to halt the continued Palestinian attacks against Israel, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said on Tuesday morning as he met in the south with some of his top military staff.

Now is the time for decisions. My position is very clear: We must deal a heavy blow against Hamas. This is the only way to return the situation to its previous state and to reduce the level of violence to nearly zero, Liberman said.

Ultimately the decision whether to strike Hamas or not will be made by the entire cabinet, but in Libermans mind it has gotten to the point where war is inevitableR...

Why America Didnt See Fascism Coming "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

What Happens When a Society is More Concerned With Saving Face Than Facing Truth

The New York Times finally, for the first time, warned of fascismthree weeks before an election in which America will be fighting for the soul of its democracy. LOL. If that makes you laugh, youre not wrong. Theyand I mean that they as generously as possible when it comes to America media, intellectuals, and power figuresshould have warned you long ago. As seriously and as sternly as they could. Discussing its history and danger and swiftness. (And you, in turn, should have taken those warnings as seriously as you could.)

Alas, that is not how history works. Fascisms handmaiden is denialit cant happen here!! But denial, at least among those who should know better, is precisely equivalent, morally, socially, and politically, to complicity. What is the point of having a Harvard education if you dont even know a fascist when hes staring you in the face, after all? What is the point of a Yale education if you graduate only to find yourself one? To be able to calculate a stocks rate of return? You should laugh scornfully at such ignorance, my friendsa healthy sense of anger is what you should feel at how you have been treated thus far in the sad story of how fascism came to rise in America.

But let me tell you a little more about that story, from the inside.

About three to four years ago now, some of us began to warn in pretty urgent, strident terms that all this before us now was a very real possibility, perhaps even a probability. How did we know? Well, we tended to have two things in commonwe were people who had either lived through collapses like this before, or had studied them, or both. But that also made us something deeply unpalatable to American power structures: women and minorities. Minorities and women because we had the experience of growing up in authoritarian societies and systems, or at least bestride and beside them. Our warnings werent baseless, thenin fact, they were grounded on two forms of knowledge, not just one: lived experience, and theoretical understanding both.

For example, I began discussing how economic stagnation ignites fascist psychology, and others, like Sarah Kendzior, came from an anthropological place, some from a sociological perspective, and so on. What shouldcould, I think, in a smarter societyhave happened was that together we formed a new way to think about a very old problem: how societies collapse into extremism, melding all these disciplines. But something else, something very funny, predictable, and very sad happened, insteadat exactly the moment that we started warning of America collapsing into very real fascism.

We began to be called names. We were h...

Fight for the Future statement on NY  Attorney General investigation into net neutrality comments "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 16, 2018
Contact: 978-852-6457, press@fightforthefuture.org

As reported by several media outlets, the New York Attorney Generals office has expanded its investigation into millions of fraudulent comments that were submitted to the FCC as part of its net neutrality repeal proceeding. As part of the investigation, the AGs office has issued subpoenas to several net neutrality advocacy groups, including Fight for the Future.

Fight for the Future issued the following statement, which can be attributed to Executive Director Sarah Roth-Gaudette:

We welcome this investigation. Fight for the Future was one of the first groups to help uncover the flood of fraudulent comments that were submitted to the FCC, and to call for a thorough investigation. We additionally called for the agency to remove fraudulent comments from the docket regardless of whether they were pro or anti net neutrality, and convened a letter to the FCC from people who were personally affected by this identity theft.

Our advocacy tools and campaign pages have helped millions of real people make their voices heard about issues that affect them. But the FCC consistently used the fraudulent comments as a talking point to downplay the overwhelming public opposition to their attack on net neutrality.

We hope that this investigation reveals not only who was behind the coordinated submission of fake comments, but whether they collaborated in any way with FCC leadership or telecom companies.

A report from the US Government Accountability Office paints a grim picture of American military security or the lack thereof. A host of American weapons can easily be hacked, either due to tech issues or human incompetence.

The GAO report draws on 30 years of Department of Defense data and interviews with dozens of military officials to reveal a broad range of cybersecurity flaws in the worlds most high-tech military apparatus. Security holes were found both in aging systems and systems still under development, suggesting the problem is systemic.

The vulnerabilities are surprisingly low-tech for a country that spends more than half of every tax dollar on the military. Many security flaws involved weak passwords and unencrypted network traffic. Others suggested a poor understanding of network security by military technicians.

Scott Morrison has flagged moving Australias embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, copying Donald Trumps controversial proposal, in a shift that appears timed to coincide with the Wentworth byelection.

Guardian Australia understands moving the embassy was discussed when Malcolm Turnbull was prime minister, and Julie Bishop was foreign affairs minister, given Trumps position but the shift was dismissed out of hand as being not in Australias interests because it would counter the two-state solution, and also upset the relationship with Indonesia.

While government conservatives welcomed the shift, one senior moderate branded Morrisons stance completely mad and predicted it would backfire in the Wentworth contest. This will not pick up one vote.

Morrison acknowledged the previous advice to government when speaking to reporters on Tuesday morning, but declared he was open-minded on moving Australias diplomatic presence to Jerusalem and recognising Jerusalem as the ca...

Ron Unz Explains that the Jews Control Us by Controlling the Explanations "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

American Pravda: The ADL in American Society
RON UNZ  OCTOBER 15, 2018  7,300 WORDS

The Anti-Defamation League is the formidable organization of Jewish cowboys who ride herd on their American cattle. Revilo P. Oliver

The ADL was founded just over a century ago with the central goal of preventing a Jewish rapist and killer from being held legally accountable for his crimes, and over the decades, it eventually metastasized into a secret political police force not entirely dissimilar to the widely despised East German Stasi, but with its central goal seeming to be the maintenance of overwhelming Jewish control in a society that is 98% non-Jewish.

We should ask ourselves whether it is appropriate for an organization with such origins and such recent history to be granted enormous influence over the distribution of information across our Internet.

http://www.unz.com/runz/american-pravda-the-adl-in-american-society/

In our modern era, there are surely few organizations that so terrify powerful Americans as the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of Bnai Brith, a central organ of the organized Jewish community.

Mel Gibson had long been one of the most popular stars in Hollywood and his 2004 film The Passion of the Christ became among the most profitable in world history, yet the ADL and its allies destroyed his career, and he eventually donated millions of dollars to Jewish groups in desperate hopes of regaining some of his public standing. When the ADL criticized a cartoon that had appeared in one of his newspapers, media titan Rupert Murdoch provided his personal apology to that organization, and the editors of The Economist quickly retracted a different cartoon once it came under ADL fire. Billionaire Tom Perkins, a famed Silicon Valley venture capitalist, was forced to issue a heartfelt apology after coming under ADL criticism for his choice of words in a Wall Street Journal column. These were all proud, powerful individuals, and they must have deeply resented being forced to seek such abject public forgiveness, but they did so nonetheless. The total list of ADL supplicants over the years is a very long one.

Given the fearsome reputation of the ADL and its notorious hair-trigger activists, there was a widespread belief that my small webzine would be completely annihilated when I first launched my recent series of controversial articles in early June by praising the works of historian David Irving, a figure long demonized by the ADL. Yet absolutely nothing happened.

During the next three months my subsequent articles directly challenged nearly every hot-button issue normally so fiercely defended by the ADL an...

The Greatest Momo Market EverSo Far! "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The top-performing factor by a rather large margin was 3M Target Price Change %. Bloomberg defines this as Percent Change in the Best Target Price over past 3 months. When an analyst jumps out ahead of the pack and cranks his/her target, this puts that stock to the top of the list for this factor. This means that mindlessly following analyst 3-month target price changes was the smartest strategy over the past year from this list.

And the next top-performing factor, PORT US MOMENTUM, is another one of those it-cant-be-that-simple strategies. Bloomberg defines this little gem as the arithmetic average of weekly return for trailing 52 weeks lagged by two weeks. So basically, you buy whats been going up for the past year while shorting whats been declining.

Robert Wiblins Conversation with Tyler Cowen "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

This was two and a half hours (!), and it is a special bonus episode in Conversations in Tyler, here is the text and audio.  The starting base of the discussion was my new, just today published book Stubborn Attachments: A Vision of a Society of Free, Prosperous, and Responsible Individuals, but of course we ranged far and wide.  Here are a few excerpts:

WIBLIN: Speaking of Tetlock, are there any really important questions in economics or social science that . . . What would be your top three questions that youd love to see get more attention?

COWEN: Well, whats the single question is hard to say. But in general, the role of what is sometimes called culture. What is culture? How does environment matter? Im sure you know the twin studies where you have identical twins separated at birth, and they grow up in two separate environments and they seem to turn out more or less the same. Thats suggesting some kinds of environmental differences dont matter.

But then if you simply look at different countries, people who grow up, say, in Croatia compared to people who grow up in Swedenthey have quite different norms, attitudes, practices. So when youre controlling the environment that much, surrounding culture matters a great deal. So what are the margins where it matters and doesnt? What are the mechanisms? That, to me, is one important question.

A question that will become increasingly important is why do face-to-face interactions matter? Why dont we only interact with people online? Teach them online, have them work for us online. Seems that doesnt work. Yo...

'Economist Mom' Explains Deficit Financing "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

'Economist Mom' Explains Deficit Financing swinn Tue, 10/16/2018 - 10:18

Diane Lim, a principal at District Economics Group and former chief economist for The Concord Coalition, draws a parallel to personal finances in explaining the federal deficit.

On a basic level, she says, the government borrows for the same reason an individual borrows: When they want to consume, or spend, more than their current income allows. The government deficit is just the difference between annual spending and the governments annual revenue.

Lim, whose recurring segment on Facing the Future is called the Economist Mom, was featured in the latest program. Lim spoke with Concord Coalition Executive Director Robert L. Bixby and Chase Hagaman, the host of Facing the Future.

Together they broke down the process of financing budget deficits and the associated impacts on individuals and the nation's economy.

The national debt is largely the result of all of Washingtons previous annual deficits. Interest payments on that debt are the most rapidly growing part of the federal budget.

This growth, Bixby said, is such that in a couple years interest will be a bigger cost to the federal government than defense.

Lim said, Where you get into trouble is where you are building up debt that you will have to keep paying back in the future and . . . interest is compounding, but the things you put on your credit card, the things that you borrowed for, are not things that add to your economic capacity going forward.

As The Concord Coalitions New Hampshire state director, I joined Hagaman to discuss my latest grassroots efforts and how easy it is for citizens to get involved with the organization. A primary goal of the organization is to help people un...

Delaying rollout of Universal Credit is a sensible step but fundamental reforms are still needed "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Today we learnt that the government is preparing a package of measures for Universal Credit (UC) ahead of the upcoming Budget but what are they changing and what difference might it make?

The first thing to understand is that these changes arent about the fundamentals of either the generosity or operation of Universal Credit they are instead about how exactly the difficult next stage of the new benefits roll-out actually happens. This next stage the so-called managed migration process that moves roughly 2 million families currently claiming old benefits like tax credits onto the new system was due to get going in 2019 but required a parliamentary vote this Autumn to proceed. The difficulty of winning that vote in the near future, not least given wider Brexit politics, without some element of reform looked very difficult which is where the new package of measures comes in.

Were told that the DWP is proposing a number of tweaks:

  • A nine months delay before the managed migration begins in earnest, putting its full start back until 2020. This will aim to take the heat out of the issue and may allow the government to delay the difficult vote until after Brexit;
  • a two week run-on of some existing benefits after someone being migrated across to the new system first makes a UC claim, to reduce the risk of people having gaps in support between the two systems;
  • a reduction in the maximum amount that can be claimed back from recipients each month to pay off any advances they take when first claiming UC (these advances are how families cope with the fact that they only receive their first UC payment five weeks after making a claim)
  • A longer period (12 months) before self-employed claimants moved over become subject to the minimum income floor (a monthly cap on entitlement for people with low self-employed earnings in a given month).

Much of this chimes with recommendations weve made in recent months, and marks a sensible approach. Pausing a little before actively moving families across to UC will provide time to better ensure that the IT system is fit for purpose and that more people are being paid on time and in full when they first claim. That means both preparing for the new cases coming through the managed migration process and better getting to grips with the problems already besetting some of those families flowing onto the system through natural change.

Running on a fortnights worth of payment for current out-of-work claimants the long-term sick and disabled, parents with young children and the longer-term unemployed will...

Has Britains long overdue pay recovery finally arrived? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

In 1965 The Kinks sang Im so tired, tired of waiting, tired of waiting for you. This neatly sums up how many of us have felt about the UK labour market over the past decade, in particular our pay packets.

Since 2009 weve grown quite tired of waiting for signs that pay growth could be at least approaching pre-crisis norms. Today, perhaps, the wait may be over.

Growth in nominal (before inflation) average weekly wages increased by 3.1 per cent in the year to August. This is the fastest rate since January 2009 and above the highest rate recorded in 2015-16 when the country was enjoying something of a mini-boom in living standards.

This mini-boom came to an end when inflation started to rise (red line above) and owed more to slower price rises than to particularly rapid wage growth. Unfortunately because inflation remains above target (although it is likely to slow over the next few months) real pay growth remains a relatively meagre 0.7 per cent.

Its worth noting that this is well below the average 2.2 per cent real pay growth that was the norm pre-crisis (when nominal pay growth averaged over 4 per cent). However for some sectors it may feel a little like those heady days. Pay in real estate, hospitality, retail and construction are all rising above 2.2 per cent. In some of these sectors a rising National Living Wage (NLW) will be having an effect, but the fact that across a range of higher and lower paid sectors pay growth is starting to pick up points to a tightening labour market.

The Big Push Failed "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

In 2004, Jeff Sachs and co-authors revived an old theory to explain Africas failure to develop, the poverty trap, and an old solution, the big push.

Our explanation is that tropical Africa, even the well-governed parts, is stuck in a poverty trap, too poor to achieve robust, high levels of economic growth and, in many places, simply too poor to grow at all. More policy or governance reform, by itself, will not be sufficient to over-come this trap. Specifically, Africas extreme poverty leads to low national saving rates, which in turn lead to low or negative economic growth rates. Low domestic saving is not offset by large inflows of private foreign capital, for example foreign direct investment, because Africas poor infrastructure and weak human capital discourage such inflows. With very low domestic saving and low rates of market-based foreign capital inflows, there is little in Africas current dynamics that promotes an escape from poverty. Something new is needed.

We argue that what is needed is a big push in public investments to produce a rapid step increase in Africas underlying productivity, both rural and urban.

Note also the mosquito bed nets being used for other purposes, AT.

As the title of the blog might suggest, I was skeptical. But even if a big push wasnt exactly the right idea, Im all in favor of Big Ideas and Sachs pursued his Big Idea with tremendous skill and media savvy. Pilot programs were soon up and running and then quickly expanded into full programs. In June 2010, the Millennium Villages Project released its first public evaluation and that is when things started to fall apart.

The initial MVP evaluation claimed great success but simply compared some development indicators before and after in the treated villages without comparing to trends elsewhere. In 2010 such a study was completely out of step with contemporary practices in impact evaluation. Red flag! Clemens and Demombynes showed that comparing to trends elsewhere significantly moderated the impact. A second MVP paper was published in the Lancet but then was quickly retra...

Dispensaries selling various strains of marijuana and high-potency extracts, called budder and shatter, have opened on main streets. Regular pop-up markets like the one in Hamilton have sprouted, to the point vendors can attend five a week in the Toronto area.

Cannabis lounges have expanded, offering not just a place to smoke and take hits, but classes on growing cannabis at home and making cannabis creams. Cannabis-infused catering has gone so mainstream that the national association of food service businesses, Restaurants Canada, is hosting a seminar on it. Cannabis tour companies have opened, as have cannabis bud-and-breakfasts.

Universities and colleges across the country have introduced courses on cannabis business, investing, retail and cultivation.

Newspapers, which have hired full-time cannabis reporters, have published cannabis sections, filled with editorial ads by government-licensed producers advertising lines of cannabis-infused beverages, coffee and dog chew toys they are developing for when such products become legal.

Ms. Roach see cannabis becoming almost like corn in its derivative form, threaded through everyday Canadian consumer products. Although people eat a minimal amount of corn each day, she said, theres corn syrup in everything.

That is from Catherine Porter at the NYT.  I increasingly believe that decriminalization will prove a more stable solution than outright legalization.

How streaming has changed song structures "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

From Martin Connor, here is a list of seven mechanisms, you can read the explanations at the link:

1. Streamings Data Collection Makes Songs Simpler

2. Streaming Sites Social Media Makes Songs Confessional

3. Small Streaming Profits Make Songs Shorter

4. Streamings Customizability Makes Songs Built To Order

5. Content Digitization Makes Songs More Diverse [TC: does that contradict some of the other general claims?]

6. Free Content Makes Songs More Collaborative [TC: and heres the explanation for this one:]

Artistic competition is so fierce nowadays that artists need to constantly release music. One way to do this is to make songs shorter and simpler; another way is to get a producer to make the beat, a singer to make the chorus, and another rapper for the second verse. This leads to Migos member Offset, DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber, Chance The Rapper, and Lil Wayne all appearing on the same 2017 song, Im The One. It also means that fans start to see credits like those from Cardi Bs new album Invasion of Privacy. The 13 tracks on the album features 104 total writing credits, meaning 8 people per track. Its single Be Careful has 17 alone.

The bigger they come, the harder they fall.  Currently, we are in the terminal phase of an everything bubble which has had ten years to grow.  It is the biggest financial bubble that our country has ever seen, and experts are warning that when it finally bursts we will experience an economic downturn that is even worse than the Great Depression of the 1930s.  Of course many of us in the alternative media have been warning about what is coming for quite some time, but now even many in the mainstream media have jumped on the bandwagon.  The Economist is one of the most prominent globalist mouthpieces in the entire world, and so I was stunned when I came across one of their articles earlier today that was entitled Another economic downturn is just a matter of time.  When the alternative media and globalist media outlets are both preaching economic doom, that is a very clear sign that big trouble is imminent.

But for the moment, global financial markets seem to have settled down a bit.  U.S. markets were down on Monday, but there wasnt that much volatility.  Once again, it was tech stocks that got hit the hardest

Is China lined up to replace Russia as the US default enemy? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

https://www.rt.com/usa/440236-china-next-enemy-america/

Recent provocations in the South China Sea follow rising tensions between the US and China, but with rivalry expanding into the economic and political spheres, it seems Beijing is now encroaching on Russias top-villain status.

On Monday, the USS Decatur nearly collided with a Chinese destroyer sent to escort the US vessel operating in the South China Sea.

But naval maneuvers in the disputed waterway are just one element of the high stakes rivalry between Washington and Beijing. On the economic front, the Trump administration has slapped tariffs on $260 billion worth of Chinese goods and is now threatening to target practically all of Chinas exports to the US.

Amid the open economic warfare and military provocations in the South China Sea, last week Trump levelled fresh accusations of political meddling against Beijing. Speaking before the UN Security Council, the US leader claimed that China was attempting to interfere i...

Fight for the Future statement on new study showing nearly all unique FCC comments opposed the agencys net neutrality repeal "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

image

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 15, 2018
Contact: Evan Greer, +1-978-852-6457, press@fightforthefuture.org

A brand new study from Stanford University shows that nearly 100% of all unique comments submitted to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) opposed the agencys move to repeal net neutrality.

The following statement can be attributed to Evan Greer, Fight for the Futures Deputy Director (pronouns: she / her):

Its kind of mindblowing how many average Americans took the time to submit a unique comment to the FCC about the repeal of net neutrality, and it shouldnt come as a surprise that nearly every single one of those comments that wasnt written by a telecom lobbyist opposed the repeal.

Telecom lobbyists, FCC bureaucrats, and corrupt members of Congress have done everything in their power to downplay the massive grassroots opposition to last years net neutrality repeal. But when you sift through all the noise, fake comments, bots, and BS you always find the truth: no one wants their cable company to charge more fees and control what they see and do on the Internet.

Under Ajit Pais leadership, the FCC sabotaged its own comment process in a cynical attempt to discount overwhelming public outcry. But despite the confusion sewed by astroturf campaigns, fraudulent comments, and a phony DDoS attack peddled by the agencys staff, study after study after study has confirmed the same thing: an overwhelming majority of people from across the political spectrum support net neutrality and oppose the FCCs repeal.

Sitting members of Congress who have not signed the discharge petition to restore net neutrality had better take note: there is a massive voting block of people who care about this issue and youre running out of chances to get this right. Vote for net neutrality before November 6th or be prepared to pay the price at the polls.

Western Civilization No Longer Exists "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Western Civilization No Longer Exists
Societal Collapse awaits in the wings if climate change and nuclear war dont finish us off first

Paul Craig Roberts

The Cheney-Bush and Obama regimes destroyed due process, with the result that American citizens were detained in prison indefinitely without evidence and murdered without evidence or trial. In violation of US and international laws, the US government used torture to produce terrorists, who were not terrorists, in order to justify Washingtons wars, wars that have nothing whatsoever to do with fighting terrorism.

The Democratic Partys Identity Politics successful demonization of white heterosexual males has made American universities unsafe for white heterosexual males. Any woman can accuse them of rape, and despite the absence of any evidence, and even in the face of complete evidence to the contrary, the university, in total violation of all known rules of due process, can convict the accusedindeed, conviction on accusation alone is mandatory in American universitiesand destroy the reputation of the accused along with his ability to continue his education.

In the article below federal courts confronted with these mandatory university convictions of white males have overturned them, ruling against the universities violations of due process. The corrupt university administrations are serving Identity Politics, not justice.

Just imagine that if the Democrats, who in their glory represented the working class, were to achieve political power and appoint federal judges. No white heterosexual male would be safe. Under the Democrats Identity Politics, white heterosexual males are automatically guilty. Due process is not needed. By definition, white heterosexual males are racists, misogynists, and rapists. No evidence is needed.

I am waiting for the case when a white university female brings a rape case against a black university male. It will be interesting to see how the university chooses which side to take. In such a case we have two victims of white male supremacy. Which victim will prevail against the other victim. Will the university come down on the side of the protected black or on the side of the protected female? Or will the university decide that the rape was actually done by a white male pretending to be a black.

This question illustrates the complete breakdown of American society. Most likely this deplorable situation is the case throughout the Western World. Society is so divided that there is no society there. And the idiot Russians want to join us!

To be truthful, there is nothing left of Western civilization, and the fault is not Russias, Chinas, Irans, or Venezuelas. It is our own. We are an insouciant people, unconcerned, ignorant, worried o...

Despite Strong Economy, an Alarming Increase in the Federal Deficit "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Despite Strong Economy, an Alarming Increase in the Federal Deficit swinn Mon, 10/15/2018 - 15:33

WASHINGTON -- The Concord Coalition today warned that the rapidly rising federal budget deficit -- totaling nearly $779 billion in Fiscal Year 2018 -- reflects a structural gap between spending and revenues that is largely ignored in Washington even as it grows worse.

The Treasury Department this afternoon released the figure, which is $113 billion higher than 2017 deficit, along with other data for Fiscal 2018, which ended Sept. 30.

While not surprising, the confirmation of a ballooning budget deficit is alarming and should be of great concern to elected officials, this years congressional candidates and the general public, said Robert. L. Bixby, executive director of The Concord Coalition. This problem is not going away on its own. What makes the Fiscal 2018 numbers particularly troubling is that they show a worsening picture despite a strong economy. Rather than taking advantage of this strong economy to improve the fiscal picture, Washington over the past year has made the situation worse.

Federal receipts for Fiscal 2018 totaled $3,329 billion while spending totaled $4,108 billion. The comparable figures for the previous year were $3,315 billion in receipts and $3,981 billion in outlays. Roughly three-quarters of the spending growth came from mandatory spending programs and interest on the debt, which grow on autopilot. By contrast, revenue was essentially flat despite solid economic growth.

Policymakers must eventually make some hard choices to bring mandatory spending growth and revenues into better alignment, Bixby said. Neither Democrats nor Republicans think this choice-less fiscal policy can go on forever.

The 2018 deficit added signifi...

New Stock Suggestion: CannAmerica Corp. (CSE: CANA) "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Important U.S. Cannabis Position

Dear Reader,

Over the coming weeks, I want to build the ultimate cannabis portfolio for us.

Each week, Im going to be issuing out an important update for both present and new recommendations.

Dont miss these alerts; helping people take positions in a trend like this is the most important thing Ive ever done.

Helping others build wealth and break out of the rat race is my lifes purpose, and I have a feeling that the next 3 to 5 years are going to be something extraordinary. Regular, significant gains have become the norm, as cannabis regulations in Canada and the U.S. are becoming more relaxed and large alcohol, tobacco, and even some pharmaceutical companies are having discussions with some of the major cannabis players.

The best companies in the business are making inroads into geographical regions that are cannabis-friendly both in terms of consumer demand and in regards to policies and regulations. Top firms also have an ability to raise capital for expansion and new ventures into this exciting legalized cannabis market.

New Recommendation:

CannAmerica Brands Corp. (CSE: CANA) is our U.S. cannabis position.

The irony is its their first day of trading and they arent actually listed in the U.S. yet, but they should be soon.

This is day 1 for them going public, and you can currently only acquire shares on the Canadian Stock...

CRITICAL CANNABIS UPDATE: The Dam is About to Burst "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The Walls are Coming Down Globally for Cannabis Restrictions

Dear Reader,

The legalization of cannabis is now a globally-encompassing phenomenon.

The takeover is happening state by state and nation by nation, and the floodgates are opening for businesses, entrepreneurs, and investors as the stigma formerly attached to cannabis is now being replaced with heavy consumer demand.

Consumers are happy to have a healthier alternative to alcohol and prescription drugs, and governments are enjoying the new tax revenue coming in by the billions!

The cannabis space holds the promise of vast wealth as an investment because of its global appeal as a medical solution, as well as a recreational pastime for adults.

This flourishing industry is expected to cross the $63 billion value mark by the year 2024.

Embracing the plant, citizens and policymakers are creating a border-crossing patchwork of worldwide cannabis policy reform:
