At 6:58, see the swastika? Workers showing their support for Philip
Battenberg's engagement?

The absence of safety glasses and machine guards, as well as the amount
of non-automated labor) is striking to someone who has worked in a more
modern factory. Labor was inexpensive, as the British worker at the
time was still poor [1] compared to a couple of decades later, and could
barely afford to buy the bicycles they made.

Management was short-sighted, as profits went to a select few
stockholders, instead of being re-invested in modernization. British
executives who visited Japan in the 1960's were shocked to see how far
behind they were, and were unable to react when the Japanese started
exporting in earnest to the "West" in the late 1960's.

Do not be too smug - there is a concerted effort to dismantle the
current systems in Western Europe and make them much more like the US.
Go across the English Channel to see the most advanced case. And the
ECB is having it's way with Portugal, Spain, Italy, and Greece, with
austerity for workers, and subsidies for investment bankers.

The problem is not lack of actual wealth, but a financial system that is
rigged to benefit a few thousand people at the expense of the other 7
billion. We are, as war criminal Henry Kissinger said, nothing by
"worthless eaters" in their eyes.

But the Cameron/Clegg austerity measures are not bringing the promised
growth, but rather shrinking of the economy, falling wages for those
outside The City, and higher unemployment.

But hey, if you have an ideology to support, only listen to sources you
agree with.

Keynes was correct, and Friedman wrong. Sorry about that. :)

Ideally, people would be utterly perplexed if some space / time
traveler dropped in and brought up the concept of "money".

Europe is at least honest in its profligacy. It's not better
here, we merely have The Big Lie and a faster printing
press. The foreseeable end will be a debacle in both cases

It doesn't look encouraging, but which way do we want to go out? What

Moral: (at least in US) If you want to lower the deficit, put a Democrat
in the White House.

Of course maybe, as Cheney said, deficits don't matter. They didn't seem
to post WWII: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:USDebt.png

Of course the real way to balance budgets is to create more jobs by
putting all that idle money to work, something the conservatives have
had a very difficult time doing, historically.

Progressive? Fair?

http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2011/0415/Taxes-and-the-rich-How-much-do-they-pay-now

"To put it in numbers, according to the analysis, the top 1 percent of
earners account for 20.3 percent of total personal income in the United
States and pay 21.5 percent of all federal and state taxes. The middle
20 percent of households earn 11.6 percent of US income and pay 10.3
percent of taxes. The lowest 20 percent account for just 3.5 percent of
income, and pay 2 percent of all taxes."

The music stops when the fat cats take their ball and go home. That's
what happened in 1929 and 2008. The factories are still there, people
are still willing to work and purchase, nothing has changed except on
some abstract market, but everything grinds to a halt and we start
accumulating real losses, from which many people will never recover.
Look at what happened in Japan.

The real deficit isn't between revenues and expenses, it's the deficit
of what could be made/built/invented and what isn't and won't be. Those
are real tangible losses, not paper ones. The clock is ticking and the
meter is running. Deficit hawks will piss away a decade at a time when
humanity can least afford it. It's swell if you can spend the time
swanning around your Boca retreat or skiing in Aspen, , but for us
working stiffs, not so great.

The only socialism in the US has been for the financial sector. Funny
how that works -- or doesn't, obviously.
