Drug crisis pushes up mortality rate for Americans in their prime ‘For the first time, mortality rates are increasing without respect to geographic or racial boundaries, a harsh reflection of the widespread economic decline of America’s workers.’
Spash Makes A Splash
Clive Spash is a rogue economist who actually talks truth to power, instead of carrying water for power as so-called liberal comedians are wont to do. This guy hates ‘green economics’ with a passion. He takes Lord Stern’s economic ‘conventional wisdom’ and punches it in the gut, then kicks it while it’s down. I fucking love this guy! Watch this first video debate where he and Kevin Anderson debate the two apologists on the left. Clive is wearing a horrendous green suit.
To get a real sense of Clive watch this next video. Stern and his elitist pals want rich countries to grow 3-4% while developing countries grow 6-7%. Growth is what really matters to them, ‘green’ is just the patina whitewash adjective. This kind of bullshit is called ‘green growth’ or ‘decoupling growth from resources’. 20% of the world lives on $1.25/day, but did you know that 80% of the world lives on $3,000/year? @ around the 30:00 mark.
