Chinese Corporatism Turns Sour
9:49 am edt
As even the casual observer of the effects from the corporatist model for economic commerce knows, permanence in a developing
prosperity is transient at best. What becomes the rush to ratchet up industrial production ends up in a piercing disappointment
for long term stability. China is the latest example of a corporatist model in serious trouble. And who will suffer the most?
Those dependent on export manufacturing are clearly poised for a very bumpy ride. While the oligarchs play global chess with
their foreign companies, the enterprise of creating a rise in world-wide wealth suffers.

Iranian Sanctions was bad for Business
3:01 pm edt
By now you have heard that the P5 + 1 and Iranian agreement includes a path for easing out economic sanctions. Before
the political pundits inject their commentary and biases for the overall tradeoff of varied interests, it would be good to
assess the economic costs computed by imposing sanction on Iran as a political stick to isolate and punish the defiant regime.
As the American Empire cracks under the pressure of maintaining total conflict in the Middle East, the realities that the
overall world community wants a shift in policy is certainly evident in this controversial arrangement of agreement.

Greek Referendum on IMF Ultimatum
6:45 pm edt
This is a test. Will the internationalist banksters force extraction of their ill-gotten interest payments
to bail out their reckless derivative trades gone wrong, or will a sovereign country abandon the chains of financial elite
coercion and renounce their IMF and ECB debt? Make no mistake about it, Greece has lived high on the hog for decades and has
serious internal problems. There is no free ride. However, the pain from the coming default is necessary to shed the yoke
of a failed European Union construct.

Corporations vs. Entrepreneurship
1:28 pm edt
The corporate culture would have you believe that it is the foremost structure of the economy. That
the entrepreneur is a nuisance and is tilting at windmills. Since competition is a dirty word, the innovative venture poses
no threat, but might qualify as an acquisition. Only if the business model is such that duplicating the endeavor is too time
consuming or difficult will the corporatist take interest. Yet, in the end, the design of the corporate organization is more
about brute force than creative invention. So why is it so difficult for the enterpriser to get their project off the ground?
And what is the compelling motivation to start your own business?

Private Equity a Formula for Fraud
7:59 am edt
How quaint, private equity sounds like the very definition of capitalism. Well, peel back this onion
and the tears come streaming from your eyes. As with any insider investment scheme, the devil is in the details. So when these
operations fell under government regulation, some optimists felt good that the government would protect the limited partners
and the entire financial system. Just how did it work out?

Commencement Graduation and Employment Prospects
5:42 am edt
Is it worth going to college to secure viable employment? Once, the future looked bright, for students
earning a university degree and selecting from various offers from employers. Today the mere notion that such a question can
and should be asked illustrates that the American economy has greatly transitioned into a very insecure and tenuous career
opportunity society. When the lack of employment realities drives job seekers to leave the search for rewarding positions
that offer a chance for a path to attaining middle class aspirations, the entire labor equation needs to be rethought.

Right and Left Agree: TPP about Corporate Control
7:51 am edt
There is not another issue more emblematic and dastardly that furthers the New World Order agenda
than total control over global trade. The Trans Pacific Partnership is so secret that the Pelosi rule takes effect. You must
approve it before you find out what is in it. So why is there so little outrage from the public about negotiations that are
fundamentally already approved in a Bilderberg session? All factions of ideological persuasion that oppose worldwide tyranny
have a common interest and imminent need to oppose the TPP.

Will Interest Rates Ever Rise?
7:31 am edt
Wrapped in a worldwide currency depression, the intentional zero interest rate strategy has fostered
great damage to the practice of saving. Nevertheless, not everyone believes or blames central banksters for enacting a deliberate
policy. Reporting on one such denier is UK columnist Jeremy Warner. He writes in the Telegraph article, When will interest
rates rise? The way things are going, maybe never.

The Banksters War on Cash
8:21 am edt
Once upon a time, the famous criminal Willie Sutton
was asked why he robbed banks, and his response was simple, eloquent, and humorous: “Because that’s where
the money is.” Well, soon that adage may be proven untrue. What exactly is the meaning of legal tender? In order
to place money in its proper perspective, examine what the U.S. Treasury

Corporate Farms Control of Water
7:22 am edt
Water and air are the most important resources on the planet. Breathing clean air seems to be accepted
as a noble goal and the cost attributed to its improvement is usually universally accepted. However, the same cannot be said
about access to fresh water as big business interests often argues. Many corporate interests contend that private ownership
of public water out- weighs the rights of actual property owners. Corporate agriculture is quite different from traditional
family farming. Yet, the factory farms that have taken over agribusiness demonstrate little regard for preserving a viable

Cost of Negative Bank Rates
7:16 am edt
So you thought that the unimaginable could not happen. The signal is heard loud and clear. Keeping
your money in a fiduciary account will not only earn no interest; there will be an actual cost of parking your funds in a
bank relationship. The madness that has engulfed the financial sector is preparing to escalate the systematic looting of saved
capital. Ponder the consequences of negative bank rates and ask, what exactly can anyone do or where can they place their
money for safekeeping. The first objective of entrusting your funds to a financial institution is to have the ability to obtain
access to the return of your capital.

Regular readers of this Corporatocracy series should have a firm grasp on the concept of Corporatism.
However, the uninitiated might presume that a corporation is merely a vehicle for protecting the owners of the enterprise
from the liability risks of conducting business. Much attention has been devoted to the economic conditions and aspects when
examining the corporate structure. But modest effort is found in business journals that discuss the social consequences of
consolidating the entire hierarchy of political favoritism, access to capital and protection from competition that is at the
heart of the corporatist model.

Destructive Centralization and the GE Corporatist Culture
6:57 am edt
Entrepreneurs’ versus the corporatists’ mode of business culture are separated by a vastly
different view of enterprise. The former deems his work as innovative, creative and beneficial to customers. The later see
the corporate organization as an institution end of itself. Competition makes the business pioneer sharp and driven, while
any competitor is targeted for demise within the corporative culture. Buyouts of ventures that show promise may be a payoff
reward for the struggling enterpriser, but the corporatist CEO sees the absorption of new technology as a twofold gain. Acquiring
the means to create or advance market share and stamping out any future competitive threats.

China wants to have a reserve currency
10:59 am edt
Common wisdom has China as the future model for the Globalist economy. Also, conventional thinking has
the Western financial debt created money system as the backbone of the New World Order. The big question is, are both components
of the same intentional plan? When China Has Announced Plans For A ‘World Currency’
, the world is put on notice that a fundamental shift is about to take place.

What to Expect from FCC Control of Internet
9:00 am est
Now that the split vote on the FCC commission has decided to accept their secret plan to turn the internet into a public
utility, prepare for all the same rubber stamp decisions that your state run Public Service Commission’s operate in
the utility sector. As anyone who ever interacted with PSC type regulators can attest, the corporatist legal teams that shepherd
their clients’ monopolist proposals, almost invariably get their way. So much for a crony system, that seldom protects
the interests of the rate payer.

HSBC Corporate Governance Corruption

When the Negotium essay, Long History of HSBC Money Laundering was written over two years ago, one might think that the
Banksters would look to take a lower profile. Forget about it, when you are part of a made criminal syndicate you never have
to serve time, just say you are sorry. Bloomberg reports, the “HSBC Holdings Plc Chief Executive Officer Stuart Gulliver

Why Prevent Labeling of GMO Foods?
7:48 am est
Whether to require labeling on GMO foods should be the easiest and simplest of decisions. If health and safety is really
a mandate of federal agencies, where is the beef in their policies? Come on people, banning such modifications is not even
remotely being considered, so why will the government not lead the way and allow the public to be reasonably informed with
full disclosure of exactly the makeup and alterations to the very essence of the food we eat.

Greek Vote Pushes EU to Limit
1:48 am est
The resounding victory of Alexis Tsipras in the Greek election was certainly a referendum that rejected
the austerity demands placed on Greece by the European Union. The Wall Street Journal says the following, in Syriza Win in Greek Election Sets Up New Europe Clash
“A Syriza victory marks an astonishing upset of Europe’s political order, which decades
ago settled into an orthodox centrism while many in Syriza describe themselves as Marxists. It emboldens the challenges of
other radical parties, from the right-wing National Front in France to the newly formed left-wing Podemos party in Spain,
and it sets Greece on a collision course with Germany and its other eurozone rescuers.”
