Como os Poderosos do Mundo Acham que Podem Evitar Novos Trumps e Brexits.

O site Zero Hedge traz um ótimo relato de uma reunião em Davos, na Suíça, entre a chefe do FMI, Christine Lagarde, e multimilionários, sobre como evitar a frustração da classe média mundial que elege Trump e decide pelo Brexit.

Como eles acham que podem evitar que o povo vote por Trump e Brexit?

Eles acham que o estado deve distribuir mais riqueza, dando dinheiro direto às pessoas, fazendo mais gastos (keynesianos) em infraestrutura, e tributando mais. 

Esse pessoal é idiota mesmo e querem continuar mamando no Estado.

Vejam o relato abaixo:

Lagarde Urges Wealth Redistribution To Fight Populism

As we scoffed oveernight, who better than a handful of semi, and not so semi, billionaires - perplexed by the populist backlash of the past year - to sit down and discuss among each other how a "squeezed and Angry" middle-class should be fixed. And so it was this morning as IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde, Italian Finance Minister Pier Carlo Padoan and Founder, Chairman and Co-CIO of Bridgewater Associates, Ray Dalio, espoused on what's needed to restore growth in the middle class and confidence in the future.

The conclusions of the discussion are as farcical as the entire Davos debacle, as three people completely disconnected from the real world, sat down and provided these "answers"...
As Bloomberg reports, while International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde urged a list of policies from programs to retrain workers to more social spending...
Lagarde said policy makers “really have to think it through and see what can be done” given the feedback from voters who say "No.” Among measures that could be implemented are fiscal and structural reforms, she added.

“But it needs to be granular, it needs to be regional, it needs to be focused on what will people get out of it and it probably means more redistribution than we have in place at the moment,” Lagarde told the panel.

The establishment academics also had plenty of textbook declarations and jabs to make...
“We need to go to a system where we are protecting workers, not jobs, and society will help people retrain or reorient,” Richard Baldwin, professor of international economics at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, said in an interview in Davos. “There may just be a need to man up. We have to pay for the social cohesion that we need to keep our societies advancing, and accept that this may be a higher tax burden on people.”

The panel saw former U.S. Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers attacking Donald Trump saying populism is “invariably counter-productive” for those it claims to help.

“Our President-elect has made four or five phone calls to four or five companies, largely suspending the rule of law, and extorting them into relocating dozens or perhaps even a few hundred jobs into plants in the United States,” Summers said.

Summers’s recipe for dealing with populism twisted Trump’s campaign slogan. “Our broad objective should be to make America greater than ever before,” Summers said. “That’s very different from making it great again.”

He suggested three major steps. First, “public investment on an adequate scale starting from infrastructure” also embracing technology and education; second, “making global integration work for ordinary people” and third, “enabling the dreams of every young American” including education, finding work and home purchasing.
And ironically, the wealthiest of all the panel members was perhaps the clearest...
Hedge Fund billionaire Ray Dalio warned on a panel chaired by Bloomberg Television’s Francine Lacqua that “we may be at a point where globalization is ending, and provincialization and nationalization is taking hold.”

“I want to be loud and clear: populism scares me,” Dalio said. “The No. 1 issue economically as a market participant is how populism manifests itself over the next year or two.”
So, to sum up - a bunch of rich, disconnected elites in Switzerland believe the world's "middle class" will be better off if policy-makers "man-up" and increase taxes on the "wealthy" in order to redistribute wealth to the masses to "pay for social cohesion." Yeah, that will work... we suspect echoes of "Four more years" will be heard in 2020 if they follow that path.

Documentário: "O Embuste do Aquecimento Global"

Que tal ouvir cientistas dizendo que a questão do aquecimento global é um completo embuste político?

Quem defende o tal aquecimento global costuma dizer que basicamente todos os cientistas colocam a culpa no homem.

Não é assim, há muitas vozes dissidentes. Aliás, eu cheguei a mostrar no meu outro blog que, ao contrário do que se diz, a maioria dos cientistas NÃO concorda com o tal "man made global warming" (mudança climática antropogênica).

E a ciência não é uma questão do que a maioria pensa.

O documentário The Global Warming Swindle é bem interessante. Assistam acima.

Nevou no Deserto do Saara. Ah, Esse Tal Aquecimento Global é Estranho

Pois é, amigos, após 37 anos, caiu neve no deserto do Saara. Imagens lindas, não são? Não, para ambientalistas extremistas.

2015 foi um ano muito quente, os ambientalistas saíram às ruas gritando: "É Fim do Mundo! Salvem o Planeta, Matem as Pessoas!!. Eles não disseram, mas esse aquecimento de 2015 ocorreu após 17 anos de queda na temperatura global, que veio muito abaixo do previsto pela ONU e pelos extremistas ambientais.

Aí veio 2016. Em 2016 as temperatruras despencaram. Silêncio total entre os ambienatlistas.

Quando ocorre queda de temperatua, os ambientalistas extremistas, no máximo, retrucam: "hei, não é aquecimento global é "mudança climática"".

Daí, alguém poderá contra argumentar dizendo: "Mudança Climática? O que isso significa? As ilhas não vão deparecer, os mares não vão invadir as praias, as geleiras não irão derreter....?"

Ficará sem respostas.

Agora, leio que nevou no deserto do Saara após 37 anos.

Esquerdista do New York Times Detona Esquerdistas Acadêmicos.

Em suma, ele diz que os esquerdistas que dominam as universidades devem aceitar e ouvir o que dizem os conservadores, pois assim conseguirão entender a vida fora das universidades.

Nos Estados Unidos, só 10% dos professores de universidades são conservadores.

Qual é a chance disso acontecer? Zero. Os esquerdistas perderiam os debates. E eles sabem disso.

A Idiotice Acadêmica: Estudantes Arrancam Retrato de Shakespeare na Universidade de Pennsylvania.

Estudantes arrancaram um retrato de Shakespeare do Departamento de Literatura Inglesa, pois, segundo eles, Shakespeare não representa diversidade. Colocaram no lugar um retrato de uma escritora negra feminista.

Ai, meu Deus. Costumo dizer que o grande padre e escritor Robert Benson acertou em quase tudo em sua brilhante distopia, O Senhor do Mundo,  que é centrada no fim do século XX, menos que as universidades defenderiam valores de liberdade intelectual e que a Igreja Católica defenderia sua doutrina secular.

Vejam texto do Campus Reform.

Students rip down Shakespeare portrait at UPenn

Investigative Reporter

  • Students at the University of Pennsylvania removed a portrait of Shakespeare from a prominent location in the school’s English department after complaining that he did not represent a diverse range of writers.
  • The Department had previously voted to remove the painting, so students took matters into their own hands, replacing the portrait with one of an African American writer and delivering Shakespeare to the Department Chair's office.
  • Students at the University of Pennsylvania removed a portrait of Shakespeare from a prominent location in the school’s English department after complaining that he did not represent a diverse range of writers.
    In fact, the chair of the department confirmed in a statement that the portrait was stripped from the wall by his students as “a way of affirming their commitment to a more inclusive mission for the English department,” The Daily Pennsylvanian reports.
    Removing Shakespeare's portrait was “a way of affirming their commitment to a more inclusive mission.”    
    Additionally, Department Chair Jed Esty explained that the portrait was “delivered” to his office and replaced with a photograph of Audre Lorde, a celebrated African American feminist and author, in a move that was in intended to send a message to Esty, whose department agreed to replace the portrait several years ago.
    Esty went on to confirm that the portrait of Lorde will remain in Shakespeare’s place until he and his colleagues can reach an agreement on what to do next, announcing the establishment of a “working group” to help monitor the process.
    According to a statement released by the school’s English department, the working group will help “declare and defend [its] departmental mission in the current political climate,” with Esty noting that the group will “initiate an open and collaborative conversation among students, faculty, and employees in English to come up with ideas for that public space.”
    Notably, the school’s “Code of Student Conduct” explicitly prohibits students from “stealing, damaging, defacing, or misusing the property or facilities of the university or of others.”
    Campus Reform reached out to the school for a comment on the matter, but did not receive a response in time for publication.

    Lista de 244 Padres-Cientistas. Muitos São Fundadores de Ramos Científicos. E Até Pai da Ciência Moderna.

    O site National Catholic Register traz uma lista de 244 grandes padres (e até papa) que são cientistas renomados.

    É muito instrutivo. Muitos são fundadores de todo um ramo científico. Há desde o pai da ciência moderna (padre Roger Bacon), paasando por: pai da genética (padre Mendel), pai do Big Bang (padre George Lemaitre na foto acima com Einstein), pai da geologia (beato Nicolas Steno), pai da apicultiura (padre Dzierzon), pai do motor elétrico (padre Jedlik), pai da egiptologia (padre Kircher), pai da acústica (padre Mersenne), pai da contabilidade (padre Pacioli),...

    A lista tem 244 nomes. Mas falta gente muito ilustre. Quem não chamaria São Tomás de Aquino de cientista? O papa português João XXI também era um matemático e médico de renome e não está na lista.

    Eu coloquei o nome de um dos meu filhos de Nicolas, pois vi em 2009 que havia muitos Nicolas (Nicole, Nicola, Niccolo, Nicolau) entre padres cientistas.
