EURO: The Beginning of the End? Soros says, Yes


George Soros warns Davos: The Euro will destroy the European Union (Quotes are from Soros’ web site and the analysis is partially adapted from that same source)




The European currency was saved this past summer, but problems in recent years have seriously affected the Euro area economy and created dangerous political imbalances therefore 2013 will be a very turbulent year, warned billionaire George Soros, who attended the World Economic Forum held in Davos .


Though retired from being a hedge-funds manager, Soros is a keen investor who and expert on world currencies who defeated the wrongly valued British pound in 1992.

According to Soros latest view of the Euro, the European Central Bank (ECB) intervention in late 2012 to save the single currency came only after German Chancellor Angela Merkel  gave permission to do the minimum necessary.

The outcome of these interventions is a Eurozone split into a) creditor countries  such Germany, the Netherlands and the Scandinavians and b) the debtor countries   such as southern (such as Europe Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Ireland) and beyond into Central and Eastern Europe.

"Lenders control everything and, unfortunately, the are arguing for a policy of austerity that is counterproductive" for the development of the periphery, said the billionaire who was quoted by the Daily Beast.  While the ECB and International Monetary Fund ( IMF ) completed spending cuts and tax hikes as a condition for providing financial support "excessive debt can not be reduced by reducing the gross national product," said Soros. Thus, the billionaire believes that austerity continues to push the Euro area toward recession, which will exacerbate political tensions. 

Soros knows the obvious—if consumers have too little to spend, national economies cannot grow.

Now, the danger is that the European Union, a voluntary association of equal states, is going to divide the system into a "center", and a "periphery," Soros warns. The Center would control the public policies of the EU, and the poorer peripheral countries would always find a lower position of subordination. Moreover, problems begin to emerge between the European countries and other developed countries.  There is already an "early war of coins, "said Soros. (He likened the current situation to the aftermath of World War II, when the U.S. and other developed countries controlled the flow of capital and imposed developing countries to be subordinated to very harsh fiscal discipline.)

The political problem in Europe is that creditor countries especially Germany, are in charge, and every other member of the EU is playing a smaller role in developing the union. Virtually nothing can be proposed at European level without “Germany’s agreement," say Soros. 

Germany’s financial solution to the problem is not acceptable to the peripheral countries, which, since the Euro entered the scene on Jan 1, 1999, are no longer to devalue their own currency to be able to regain a competitive advantage vis-รก-vis Germany.

Thus “the Euro risks destroying the European Union, "Soros warned. Unlike other central banks, the ECB does not practice a relaxation of monetary policy. 

In Japan, the central bank is trying to devalue the yen to increase exports. "It is a direct challenge to Germany," Soros has said, considering that the two countries are direct competitors in exporting high quality products. "Divergences between the yen and the Euro will worsen and this will have a negative effect on the performance of Germany " said the billionaire, who pointed out that this may create a lot of tensions between Germany and Japan.

In the meantime, I surmise that Germany has vitually “enslaved” low-tech Europe by preventing it from gaining the hi-tech industry necessary to compete with Germany. Only Germany can produce at low cost the equipment needed by  the poorer countries, which are locked who into being Germany’s “controlled” customers.

Will the Euro Destroy the European Union? Says Soros


George Soros warns Davos: The Euro will destroy the European Union

The European currency was saved this past summer, but problems in recent years have seriously affected the euro area economy and created dangerous political imbalances therefore 2013 will be a very turbulent year, warned billionaire George Soros, who attended the World Economic Forum held in Davos .

Under the rigid single currency scheme, in effect Germany has enslaved the other countries members of the EU. It is the smaller sized economies of the South and East of the EU that had been effectively “enslaved”. Though retired from being an investor, and hedge-funds manager, Soros has a word to say in the world economy, being recognized for the attack on the British pound in the 1994s. According to him, the European Central Bank’s intervention to save the single currency came only after German Chancellor Angela Merkel gave permission and, has achieved its goal, except to make Germany the powerhouse, which exports to the poor countries of the EU, which cannot devalue, in order to compete with Germany. This strategy has nothing but it "damaged" financially the continent. "Germany has done the minimum necessary to save the euro," said Soros. The outcome of these interventions is a eurozone split into creditors - - countries like Germany, the Netherlands and the Scandinavian - - and debtors - Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Ireland. "Lenders control everything and, unfortunately, arguing for a policy of austerity is counterproductive," said the billionaire who was quoted by the Daily Beast . Whilst the ECB and International Monetary Fund ( IMF ) completed spending cuts and tax hikes as a condition for providing financial support "excessive debt can not be reduced by reducing the gross national product," said Soros. Thus, Soros believes that austerity push the euro area toward recession, which will exacerbate political tensions. Big dangers lurk within the EU, he said. Now, the danger is that the European Union, a voluntary association of equal states, is going to divide the system into a "center", and a "periphery," Soros warns. The Center would control the public policies of the EU, and the poorer peripheral countries would always find a lower position of subordination. Moreover, problems begin to emerge between the European countries and other developed countries. There is already an "early war of coins, "said Soros. He likened the current situation to the aftermath of World War II, when the U.S. and other developed countries controled the flow of capital and imposed developing countries to be subordinated to very harsh fiscal discipline. The political problem in Europe is that creditor countries especially Germany, are in charge, and every other member of the EU is playing a smaller role in developing the union. Virtually nothing can be proposed at European level without “Germany’s agreement,"said the investor. The European financial solution to the problem "is not acceptable in political and long term, which is intorelable by the peripheral countries. Thus “the euro risks destroying the European Union, "Soros warned. Unlike other central banks, the ECB does not practice a relaxation of monetary policy.
In Japan, the central bank is trying to devalue the yen to increase exports. "It is a direct challenge to Germany," G. Soros said, considering that the two countries are direct competitors in exporting high quality products.

CSU Needed Boost; Governor Brown's state budget plan provides CSU with a needed boost - California Faculty Association

Finally some good news for education in California. Up to this point, for 7 consecutive years, Lecturers and teaching assistants have been consistently laid off, and for most students it was not affordable to enroll in one of the CSU universities.
CSUDH for example has fired 30% of its Lecturers, which had a ripple effect in other universities across the board.
New online Courses will be added, and pay-raises will take effect for Lecturers on all CSU campuses.

Gov’s state budget plan provides CSU with a needed boost - California Faculty Association: "Last week, Gov. Jerry Brown introduced his budget proposal for the 2013/14 fiscal year, which included a much-needed funding increase for the CSU.
The governor proposes to increase CSU funding from the state’s general fund by $125.1 million, while also back-filling $125 million in CSU resources that the system refunded to students and their families as a result of the tuition rollback last fall.

No Brennan for the CIA!




Jan 11, 2013

Dear Dr. Olga M.,

 Drones. Kill List. Terror Tuesdays. Assassination Czar.

These are all things that we associate with John Brennan, Obama's chief counterterrorism adviser, who is the mastermind behind the administration's deadly drone program. That's why we were shocked when President Obama nominated Brennan to head the CIA.

Please join us in urging the Senators on the Intelligence Committee to reject John Brennan's nomination or, at the very least, ask tough questions during his confirmation hearings about both Brennan and the CIA's profligate use of drones. Let us know what you think they should ask, and we will deliever the message.

This secret, unaccountable drone program has expanded dramatically at the behest of John Brennan. If appointed director of the CIA, Brennan will have even more power. Learn more about this dangerous prospect in CODEPINK co-founder Medea Benjamin's article John Brennan vs. a Sixteen-Year-Old Boy.

Brennan's nomination represents an opportunity for a long-overdue evaluation of America's drone policy, a counterproductive policy that has fueled anti-American sentiment and led to the death of thousands of people in countries where we are not at war.

We have a chance to force a serious evaluation of John Brennan and killer drones. Let's seize it!

Onward towards a world free of lethal drones,
Alli, Holly, Jodie, Lachelle, Laura, Medea, Nancy K, Nancy M, Sam, and Tighe

P.S. If you live in the Washington DC/Virginia area, join us in front of John Brennan's house on Tuesday, January 15th, for a candlelight vigil to commemorate the children that have been killed by drone strikes. For more information, email Lachelle.

Book, Romania Misapprehended


Perusing Larry L Watts' book titled ROmania Misapprehended, (Rao Publishing House in Romania, 2011) we find documented arguments on why Romania was so important to the Soviet bloc during the Cold War. More on this explanation at the Bookfest at:

Click "Read More" to check out my new photo and let me know what you think!

The Romanian translation of the title of the book is: "Fereste-ma Doamne de prieteni!" and it is a monograph of the clandestine war of the soviet bloc against Romania since 1914 to our days. The book focuses on three issues: that is cognitive prejudices, institutional pathologies on both sides, and deliberate disinformation on the side of the Soviets, as well as Romanians.

O noua carte, publicata in limba romana, a agentului Larry L Watts aduce argumente in sprijinul ideii ca de fapt, Rusii au fost dintotdeauan, inca de pe vremea lui Petru I, dusmanul cel mai inrait al Romaniei, si al poporului Roman.

Enjoy con artist Larry the "benefactor" :-) Los Angeles News: Jan 16, 2013 LA WATCHDOG - The Mayor Villaraigosa, and the City Council have not engaged in any serious budget, pension, or staffing reforms over the last years. They have been busy, other than blowing a lot of hot air in our faces. Yet, once again, the City Council together with the Mayor are attempting to close the four year budget gap of over $1.1 billion on the backs of immigrant community, and teachers, rather than addressing the underlying cause of the deficit, homeowners and companies. EDUCATION News: Finally, ex-governor Schwartzenegger has repaid the loan he took from education five years ago. Good job! Jan 07, 2013-- Will she be the new Mayor of Los Angeles? - A six month investigation by Los Cerritos Community Newspaper (LCCN) into the official activities of Los Angeles City Controller Wendy Greuel has shown that, in possible violation of the Los Angeles Governmental Ethics Commission Ordinance, she has spent an overwhelming majority of her official schedule for the past three years attending lavish dinners, lunches, breakfasts, and social events in an effort to advance her 2013 mayoral campaign. Greuel is in a heated four-way campaign for Mayor of Los Angeles in the upcoming March 5th Primary Election against fellow city councilmembers Eric Garcetti, Jan Perry, and former Federal Prosecutor Kevin James. The research shows 7 years of Campaigning for Mayor on Taxpayer’s Dollar. What California Can Teach Washington Ennunciating the problem: how to keep a government, an economy, and a society functioning in the face of Republican obstruction. The latest nonsense surrounding the so-called "fiscal cliff" shows that the House Republicans have learned well from their Sacramento counterparts. How obstructionism works in Sacramento:
The method is the same: make Democrats do what they otherwise would not do by threatening to block passage of crucial legislation, then up the ante by rejecting initial deals and demanding even more once Democrats have shown they will make concessions to avoid the predicted disaster that comes with legislative inaction. The resulting deals were destructive to the state's economy and safety net, worsening the already bad financial and social crisis.
