Heres a rebutal or quibble of figure on Snopes.com,

I'm not sure what the point of the rebuttal is, being pedantic is fun I guess? It is a sad fact that no one really ever thinks they're well off we are not programmed that way anymore? Similarly democracy is a subjective measure as is Housing quality sanitation etc.

Such a complex subject when you get into it if democracy were hand in hand with Capitalism would the Sick and dispossessed be given a vote? If there were an equal vote I find it difficult to believe the Worlds aggregate population would vote for the maintenance of the status quo.

I decided to blog this as I have been having a disturbing discussion on the Economist linked in Group
and it seems that thinking in terms of equality is somehow considered wet or suspect in corporate , striving commercial circles these days, May be its always been that way, its so long since I trod the corporate treadmill I really don't remember. I have a vision of lots of Emperors walking around Starkers with all their minions congratulating on the wonderful tailoring of their new Suits?

Democracy and Capitalism? Linked In

Meet The Fuggers, Brexit, The Euro and Clueless Elites.

Meet the Fuggers or, its the Money Power stupid. Brexit, The Euro and clueless Elites.



The Eastern Roman empire under Justinian saw the seeds of its final fall to The Ottomans when Abd El Melik started paying tribute in Gold coinage under his own Political Branding you might say.

With all the talk of Brexit being the removal of a final obstacle to the deeper federation of a European State transcending tiresome nationalism, perhaps a little review of History, particularly Monetary history, might not be such a bad thing.

In the review of European competences carried out as a consultation by the foreign office regarding Brexit and or reform requirements of the Eu, two of the papers need to be considered in the context of the Money power argument.

The first paper considered is the Subsidiarity and proportionality aspects of the Lisbon treaty and the competences of the EU institutions vis National and regional democratic institutions. This is a trade-off between Centralised Efficiency and …
