Wilbur needs to explain Bank of Cyprus Thing.

Along with Deutsche Bank, Rossí bank laundered billions for Putinís Oligarchs working money out of Russia. Billions.



Excerpt...

The Appleby files show how Ross, Trumpís commerce secretary, has used a chain of Cayman Islands entities to maintain a financial stake in Navigator Holdings, a shipping company whose top clients include the Kremlin-linked energy firm Sibur. Among Siburís key owners are Kirill Shamalov, Russian President Putinís son-in-law, and Gennady Timchenko, a billionaire the U.S. government sanctioned in 2014 because of his links to Putin. Sibur is a major customer of Navigator, paying the company more than $23 million in 2016.

Hundreds of billions. At least.

On Labor Day, US Workers are 1/3 poorer than in 2003 & Top 1% is 2x Richer

Informed Comment, 09/02/2019

Ann Arbor (Informed Comment) Ė On Labor Day, American workers have little to celebrate. Thatís alright. The September Labor Day, while initially proposed by some workers in the 1880s, was backed by conservative President Grover Cleveland over May 1, which he associated with radicalism (i.e. with workers who would demand their rights). So it really isnít for the workers, it is for the bosses.

David Harrison at the Wall Street Journal reports that the lower 50% of US households by wealth have 32% less wealth than in 2003 in real numbers.

They have only now, in 2019, finally regained the wealth they lost in the Great Bush near-Depression of 2007-2009.

So theyíve gotten back to what they had in the way of assets (home value and other valuables; probably not stocks, since that half of Americans doesnít typically own securities) in 2007, but not what they had in 2003.

FDR employed artists on a national scale.

"I, too, have a dream-to show people in the out of the way places, some of whom are not only in small villages but in corners of New York City-something they cannot get from between the covers of books-some real paintings and prints and etchings and some real music."

ó Franklin Roosevelt to Hendrik Willem Van Loon, January 6, 1938

Time of Useful Consciousness...

Alex Carey said that the people of the US have been subjected to an unparalleled, expensive, 3/4 century long propaganda effort designed to expand corporate rights by undermining democracy and destroying the unions. Careyís unique view of US history goes back to World War I and ends with the Reagan era.
