Busted: Bankers and The Global Economy

Corporate Control through the Digital Economy

The digital economy has become synonymous with the large amount of global data, often blindly called information, that the world creates through life on the internet. Those corporate rustlers in the data storage business are doing very well indeed even though the immediate rewards of this investment remain mostly in the future while the world endures the continuing fallout from a global financial meltdown.

end of advertisingMost of this corporate benefit has been on the backs of corporate slavery in the backrooms and factories of the third-world as the increasing strength of a global corporate fascism grows and concretes influence in the world. Jobs in America and any economic powerhouse have been sold to the lowest bidder, typically overseas by corporate junkets that claim to have your best interests at heart. They have sold you their truth that life is simply about consumption of goods. Live for the moment. Just do it. Obey your thirst. Corporate fascists are there to rake in the profits while that opportunity exists in the hope of building a global society that they can further rule, influence and plunder.

Right after 9/11, George Bush did not instruct Americans to pray or to unite in common purpose in religious temples. Instead, President Bush encouraged America to go out and shop in temples of commerce. America must not allow terrorists to divert the economy that defines ‘our’ society and power. Through that very economic engine and toil, corrupt and cynical corporate executives of financial institutions have plunged the economies of virtually every nation into the tailspin of recession and employment stagnation. This action of corporate fascists has not been truly recognized and they remain in control as never before as the controllers of currency and commerce. They remain central to ongoing efforts to revive the decimated global economy.

Fascist corporatism now defines the world. America and much of the modern world has a fear of any lack of consumption like the global economy is enduring now. We must be convinced that we must buy now and pay later for the very system in place depends on this reality. Even worse, America has come to realize that the rest of the world has been funding this endeavor in recent years as the fever of fascist consumerism broke with the economic overheating. Much of the world and notably most Americans can no longer continue to eat at the trough of ardent consumerism that has been propelled into superstardom over the last several decades. Credit has been maxed out and personal income commandeered by corporate and government fascists as they stoke the temporary delusions of their bottom line.

The human race has turned the space race into the information age of science and technology, an endless storage bin of computer space into which we cast our hopes, dreams and fantasies, even our futures and of course, the corporate bottom line…for better or worse. We are addicted and will be manipulated to meet the needs of the current powers in place or those that reside in the future.

human lobsterIs there any other reason for the expansion of millions of terrabytes of digital power out there? Does home video really make that much money for corporate fascists? Hardly. Do personal blogs hold the purpose of the world? Unlikely. We are simply human lobsters in what will be a boiling pot given enough time. Humans are food for government control and corporate fascists. We haven’t realized the plans of the power structure in place just yet, even as the plans of those in influence continue to evolve and materialize. It is all about the power of psychology and what information global corporates can mine from your life to benefit themselves, their financial structure and to build their future. Google has only begun to mine data from your life. They may well know more about you than you do. Once that data is used to influence and manipulate, advertising and data mining achieve their pinnacle of success in the name of convenience and customer service.

The American miracle of the internet now holds the building blocks of a new global economy and global manipulation that has never been seen before. The ‘new fascists’ proclaim innovation in technology and processes with the idea of world domination for their own good. The rights of the individual mean nothing in the grand scheme. The small businessman must be crushed or controlled by higher powers. You are simply a means to their end: record profits and control of the market at any cost. The internet will be their social tool. The digital economy is an expansion of the human third-world flesh factory as billions of human lives continue to pour into a global mechanism of control and manipulation.

American Job Crisis Solution

cash needed, not corporate bailoutsEver since job losses followed by consumer consumption hit the red zone 10 months ago, the American job crisis has worsened. What gets the most attention is still retail sales, the prospect of Big Business and consumer consumption. Every measure of economic growth is measured on that consumption. In that light, there is little hope for quick results beyond drawing unemployment unless you are willing to look for small business opportunities.

Big Business is awash in crisis amid sagging numbers. Instead of focusing on lazy investors with big pocketbooks looking for investments, consider the small businessman rising to the challenge to spark innovation and a stronger economy. Investors should look at investing in themselves for their growth.

Look to spend what hard-earned dollars you have with small business, even on the internet to support the small business that builds your economy and families like yours. Vote your confidence with your wallet. Big Business is or will be sucking down huge volumes dollars in the hopes of bailing out millions of jobs in the next few months, mostly in the auto industry for cars that nobody wants. What will done with all those cars? Hopefully, they will either sell them at fire sale prices for impoverished Americans that need them, but can’t afford them or they will resell them as next year’s model. American automakers can’t afford to be choosy with taxpayer dollars. Big business needs to be giving back in spades for taxpayer bailout money received. Forget the meager interest payments Americans will never see. The American citizens need a real boost, especially among the harder hit elderly and lower to middle income. Americans need solutions, not corporate bailouts for stupid decision-making. ~ E. Manning

Post-Election Rays of Hope?

eight-ballRetailers are strategically masterminding new ways to get you to spend your money. Considering that the cost of gasoline is down, the job has suddenly become somewhat easier. All over the world in prime economies, news articles have appeared after the U.S. election celebrating a suddenly brighter consumer picture. The picture is not exactly what it seems.

Retailers are taking drastic action through hoarding cash and cutting prices in the hope of adequately coping with an ongoing recession, projected and expected to last until about the summer of 2010 by many economists and analysts. Real world retailers are suffering greatly because of the new digital economy of the internet. Even internet retailing isn’t so rosy as businesses must cut prices in order to get the attention of consumers and keep sales even. Slumping sales have been a major problem, even among the garage sale atmosphere of Ebay, where prices can’t seem to go low enough to satisfy the buyer. The cheap cost of new goods makes the value of used goods virtually worthless. The only hope is to try to make a dollar or two on handling fees or shipping.

For the fickle world of investment, the immediate prospect looks even worse. A glut of new shopping facilities, the rising cost of importing goods and the growing impact of internet shopping are creating new pressures with the result that profitability is suffering, even as the holiday season comes full circle once again.

What most larger businesses have done is to chop into their cache of innovative ideas or even the prospect of considering them. One ray of post-election hope is for the small businessman online if he can just get the attention of the browsing public. This assumes, of course, that the public knows what it wants before they get online. That isn’t how most customers shop. Advertising is down and snafus among the gloried advertising models of Google and Yahoo don’t seem to make the prospects brighter, only muddier. This bright side for the consumer is that prices are coming down and monetary units are going farther for the first time in years. This natural price adjustment is a natural part of the cycle fueled by years, perhaps decades of abusive overpricing, lending and credit.

As former corporate employees wear out the availability their unemployment checks, reserves and pensions, they will be forced to be creative in order to survive. Ultimately, this means a boom in new small business ventures. Most of these new adventures are operating on a shoestring of personal finance, leaving investors little opportunity. Those that are willing to invest what they have in themselves will eventually encounter great opportunities as they work through the trials of getting their business model right. The small businessperson is the new ray of hope for the foundering global economy. ~ E. Manning
