Europe’s heart of darkness

Migration, tribalism, drug-smuggling and nationalism – a continent’s problems reverberate through one small Greek town. Alexander Clapp travels to Aspropyrgos
 

Against their will

We start off in Northern #California, where #trafficking and sexual #violence is thriving due in part to the booming #marijuana #trade. Fishing, ranching and timber once were the big industries here, but now it’s pot. The trade is worth billions – and #police say that in recent years, it’s become intermingled with the #sex trade and organized #crime.

The Black Mambas

The Rhino Guardians

In 2016 Dan Sadgrove travelled to South Africa to visit The Black Mambas - the worlds first all female anti-poaching unit operating in the Balule Game Reserve in South Africa. Coming from disadvantaged communities and breaking strong patriarchal tradition, these courageous women focus on eliminating illegal wildlife trade through conservation, education and the protection of wildlife, helping to ensure the long term survival of threatened and endangered species in the area. Each day they patrol up to 20km, unarmed, looking for poachers, wire-snares, and break-ins along the fence line. Their lives are at constant risk from poachers and the dangerous wildlife they protect.

It is their belief that the war on poaching will not be won with guns and bullets, but through education within their local communities.

Kyrgyz concerns about donkey exports to China



Kyrgyzstan has signed a contract to export 4,000 donkeys to China, reigniting a row about the ethics and
transparency of the trade.


Police in Osh region in the south of the Central Asia state confirm that lorries laden with the live donkeys are already heading for China, adding that all licences and medical paperwork are in order, the Turmush web site reports. It established that the donkeys come from farmers in Chong-Alai village, and the price paid per head by a Chinese-Kyrgyz company is on above the local market value of 3,000-4,000 soms ($43-57; £34-46).

But local concerns about the trade persist, based largely on reports of animals going missing or being kept... mehr anzeigen
 

„Nachts sind alle Katzen blau“

This is was the "beer of the month" they had for November in the Niederlassung bar in Munich. Actually it turned out that November was the last time we were there with our Bitcoin Stammtisch, because we've since moved places. More about the new location probably in future posts.

Nevertheless, some of our members had important trading business to do.

WASHINGTON — Congressional leaders confirmed this week what seemed inevitable with the triumph of Donald J. Trump: The far-reaching trade agreement with 11 other Pacific Rim nations that President Obama hoped to leave as a major legacy, but which Mr. Trump called “a terrible deal,” is dead.

Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the incoming Democratic leader, told labor leaders on Thursday that the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership, the largest regional trade agreement in history, would not be approved by Congress. Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the majority leader, said flat-out “no” when reporters on Wednesday asked whether the agreement would be considered in the lame-duck Congress that convenes next week — its last legislative chance, given the opposition from the president-elect.

John Green teaches you about the Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie, doing business as the VOC, also known as the Dutch East India Company. In the 16th and 17th centuries, the Dutch managed to dominate world trade, and they did all through the pioneering use of corporations and finance. Well, they did also use some traditional methods like violently enforced monopolies, unfair trade agreements, and plain old warfare. You'll learn how the Dutch invented stuff like joint stock corporations, maritime insurance, and futures trading. Basically, how the Dutch East India Company crashed the US economy in 2008. I'm kidding. Or am I?

#CETA aims to boost trade between #Canada and the #European Union by eliminating tariffs on 98 percent of all goods and improving regulatory cooperation.

Opponents argue that the deal will lower EU's environmental, #health and food safety standards. The agreement will also introduce a secret #corporate court system, empowering big business to sue states for policies that threaten their #profits.

US to #help #EU survive #Brexit

source: https://euobserver.com/political/135361
”We have to fight these [populist]ideas with better ones that provide jobs and implement necessary reforms,” the US secretary said.

He said the draft EU-US free trade pact could help in that regard.

”The Transatlantic #Trade and Investment Partnership - #TTIP - is not just about giving an additional boost to #commerce,” he said. ”Our teams are sending a signal to the rest of the world on the need for high #labour and environmental standards.”

The EU is still lucky, that the US don't help like in Syria or Iraq.

#TTIPleaks: confidential TTIP papers unveil US position

Leaked text shows attempts to undermine EU environment and health protection laws

Brussels, 1 May 2016 – Greenpeace Netherlands has obtained 248 pages of leaked Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiating texts, which will be published on Monday 2 May at 11:00 CET. The documents unveil for the first time the US position and deliberate attempts to change the EU democratic legislative process.

The classified documents represent more than two-thirds of the overall TTIP text as of April, at the 13th round of TTIP negotiations in New York. They cover 13 chapters addressing issues ranging from telecommunications to regulatory cooperation, from pesticides, food and agriculture to trade barriers.

Jorgo Riss, director of Greenpeace EU, said: “These leaked documents confirm what we have been saying for a long time: TTIP would put corporations ... mehr anzeigen

#Monopoly’s New Era

The implications of this are profound. Many of the assumptions about market economies are based on acceptance of the competitive model, with marginal returns commensurate with social contributions. This view has led to hesitancy about official intervention: If markets are fundamentally efficient and fair, there is little that even the best of governments could do to improve matters. But if markets are based on #exploitation, the rationale for laissez-faire disappears. Indeed, in that case, the battle against entrenched #power is not only a battle for #democracy; it is also a battle for #efficiency and shared prosperity.

Eurozone’s So-Called Recovery Masks A Dark Secret: #Mercantilism

Export-led growth is the bad economics of the early 18th century. Reviving it in pursuit of persistent #trade surpluses will fatally undermine the #euro zone, then the European Union itself.
