Markets Need a Hidden #Fist?

source: https://fee.org/articles/markets-need-a-hidden-fist/
Second, #Friedman thinks we need to worry about those pesky foreigners who don’t understand the benefits of #globalization quite as well as he does. His basic idea boils down to this: “The hidden hand of the market will never work without a hidden fist—McDonald’s cannot flourish without McDonnell Douglas, the builder of the F-15. And the hidden fist that keeps the world safe for Silicon Valley’s technologies is called the United States Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps.” In other words, if it weren’t for #America the Global #Policeman, we wouldn’t have all those foreign markets for our goods.

#Journalism is one of the devices whereby industrial autocracy keeps its control over political democracy; it is the day-by-day, between-elections propaganda, whereby the minds of the people are kept in a state of acquiescence, so that when the crisis of an election comes, they go to the polls and cast their ballots for either one of the two candidates of their exploiters.

"I want to make a personal apology to #Chile, and to any other country where we conveyed the wrong impression." ... The problems with the #report, he said, were “my fault because we did not make things clear enough.” Mr. Romer said the World Bank is beginning the process of correcting the past reports and republishing what the rankings would have been without the methodology changes. He said he couldn’t defend “the integrity” of the process that led to the methodology changes.

The Final Days of a #Tax #Haven

source: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2017-11-15/the-final-days-of-a-tax-haven
For #Vanuatu, there’s no turning back. One way or another, it faces disruptive change today as surely as it did back when James Michener was stationed here as a young U.S. Navy officer during World War II. The noose is tightening on tax havens, and Salwai or his successors will need to find new strategies to attract overseas talent and #capital. For this remarkable Bali Hai-like nation of azure lagoons, hidden waterfalls, and volcanic lava-showers, a second act can’t come soon enough.

A #Generation in #Japan Faces a Lonely #Death

To many residents in Mrs. Ito’s complex, the deaths were the natural and frightening conclusion of Japan’s journey since the 1960s.
