A Springboard from Which to Explore and Ask Why?

So where is the Corporate Raid going to be, My guess Iran needs to Look out? Libya is a Sorbet after the Iraqi Starter a clearing of the pallette ahead of the Entre that is Iran. This strangulation of the money supply By the Banks is fully Government backed, Ellen Brown is very persuasive in the Banking aspects of Libya, then take Pakistani policy and China Trade. Physics )

A journey around Connectivity and Is the BBC biased we're All Anti Fragile Now!

Good Article. Robert Peston is a good egg in my book sadly hemmed in by the censorious excesses of the Beeb. Josh Ryan-Collins - BBC questions fractional reserve banking | the new economics foundation nef has been shining the light on monetary reform for some time now (see previous blogs on the topic) so it was gratifying to see Robert Peston opening last night's BBC documentary on the banks examining this bigger picture question. Sadly, he d
Contrast With and so on Back to the elephant and eventualy busy fools ending up with the, Mahabharata

The BBC does seem to have undergone something of a face lift in the past few years its corporatisation is a very bad thing, the same thing has happened at Universities and most other institutions. He who pays the piper calls the tune has never had more resonance. I worked for Shell UK in the mid 80's when the Piper Alpha Disaster happened, I enjoyed my time there and made some lasting friendships in the bubble of the big c…

Rhetoric Propaganda" The Industrial Monetary Complex"

Rhetoric Propaganda" The Industrial Monetary Complex"by RogerGLewis » Wed 25th May, 2011 (05:58) For the past Two years I have followed with increasing amazement the sheer un evenness of the Debate on Climate Change by any stretch for research science it is almost completely one sided. The money is backing the CO2 side of the debate and they have the PR budgets sewn up as well as most of the research money. I am an Environmentalist probably what some might even describe as being of a Tree Hugging bent I find the Notion of Carbon Trading highly suspect my preferred solution is to Tax the Polluter at source and provide disincentives to creating unnecessary demand. Typical chicken and egg stuff but consumerism is the invention of capitalism in my own world view( YMMV ) That wonderful internetism "Your Mileage May Vary". is applicable to to all statements one might make of opinion or indeed apparent empirical notions.
So why is it relevant, well cue music. Sleepers Awake…

Derivatives 101, Some stuff on Calculus.

Calculus , Derivatives, Assumptions and so on an so forth.
Here are some notes and links of some of my reading and watching this morning.
 I have spent this afternoon doing some mowing of the lawn Washing up and also some routine maintainence on My Mac and Net Book both of which have been getting a little clogged up and doing strange things into the bargain, all fixed now.

Very much a stream of consciousness but all the videos linked are very accessible and very basic with further links on the you tube pages to greater complexity as required.

Remember non of this is rocket science and everything is comprehensible and accessible if broken down to its components and an understanding built from the ground up.

Derivatives 101.

Don't Look Back, Pillars of Salt.

Some Old Blog Posts and Links. RogerGLewis posted Why Not. I believe there are shared ownership agreements which can be provided by your solicitor setting out the terms of agreement with your joint investors. Any collective investment vehicle will involve accommodating your investment partners changing circumstances over time. My own view is if you have the finance then with a long term view your running yield from the investment you make and overall returns including capital returns over even a 5 to 10 year period would be much better than most buy to let landlords have had for most of the 2000's.( the capital returns are unlikely to be better than those who sold up before mid 2007, your rental yield almost certainly will be though) Obviously you should invest bearing in mind potential rental voids and make provision for those. If you approach it in a professi…

A post about Spin

rogerglewis I think personally that most of the above analysis misses the point Labour has to be handed back to the Grass roots and the corporate agenda and tactics of spin abandoned. New Labour New Tories New Lib Dem they are as we see in America all lobbyist fodder now.
Local Labour Parties should re select all member and perspective candidates and establish their own media outlet free of contributions or any patronage on the Internet. Give the ideas and policies back to the membership for the people.
The concept of , “If you cant beat them join them” has not worked the wholesale adoption of the Precautionary Principle over rational discussion has divorced our Government from the people. What the Labour Party Has to do is divorce itself from the game of Spin and PR and try some good old fashioned truth and real democracy.
People will soon catch on, acquiescing in the continued Hijack of government by the Corporate State what Mrs Thatcher ( Then) used to Call GB Limited is a busted Fl…

I alluded to this Elephant Proverb.

I used to post on a popular Finance Blog on the property Market.
I alluded to this proverb the other day and find it's not the first time I thought it apt
when generalising on the broad church that is punditry of any kind.

John Godfrey Saxe's ( 1816-1887) version of the famous Indian legend, It was six men of Indostan To learning much inclined, Who went to see the Elephant (Though all of them were blind), That each by observation Might satisfy his mind. The First approach'd the Elephant, And happening to fall Against his broad and sturdy side, At once began to bawl: "God bless me! but the Elephant Is very like a wall!" The Second, feeling of the tusk, Cried, -"Ho! what have we here So very round and smooth and sharp?
