EU to Britain: No access to single market without migration 30.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
BRUSSELS • European Union leaders spelled out stark conditions for a new relationship with a departing Britain on Wednesday, warning that if British business wants to keep access to Europe’s single market, the country must accept European workers, too. The leaders produced no clear rehaul for their shaken union after an unusual and emotionally charged summit, but agreed they must make it more relevant to citizens and keep it from disintegrating after Britain’s unprecedented vote to leave. The 27... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

The age of disintegration 29.6.2016 Le Monde Diplomatique
We live in an age of disintegration. Nowhere is this more evident than in the Greater Middle East and Africa. Across the vast swath of territory between Pakistan and Nigeria, there are at least seven ongoing wars — in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Somalia, and South Sudan. These conflicts are extraordinarily destructive. They are tearing apart the countries in which they are taking place in ways that make it doubtful they will ever recover. Cities like Aleppo in Syria, Ramadi in (...) - Open page

GE Capital wins OK to drop 'too big to fail' label 29.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
New York • GE Capital is no longer “too big to fail.” The financing unit of General Electric Co. won approval from federal regulators Wednesday to drop its designation as a “systematically important financial institution,” a title that comes with added scrutiny and stricter rules. The label, which has been handed out by the Financial Stability Oversight Council since the 2008 recession, is given to companies that the U.S. regulator deems so large that their failure could threaten the entire econ...

abstract six line blue transparent vector

A Conversation with Andy Stern on the Case for a Universal Basic Income 29.6.2016 American Prospect
Andy Stern, the former president of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), is author of a new book, Raising the Floor , on the case for a universal basic income (UBI). As wage and salary income become less reliable and as technology replaces human work, the debate about how to distribute the fruits of technology becomes more urgent. In this edited conversation, Prospect Co-Editor Robert Kuttner and Andy Stern discuss the place of a UBI and its relationship to other strategies for defending worker rights, expanding other social protections, and improving wage and salary income. —the Editors Robert Kuttner: Andy, Congratulations on your new book, Raising the Floor, on the case for a universal basic income. Your prologue is that there are too few Americans working or looking for a job, that college is less of a good investment than it used to be, that wages are too low, and there is an accelerating shift to freelancing and on-demand work. The implication of all these workplace transitions is that ...

The First Post-Middle-Class Election 29.6.2016 American Prospect
Two years ago, a pollster for Democratic candidates told me he’d begun advising his clients to cease emphasizing “the middle class” when speaking of those Americans whose interests they were defending. Many Americans who once thought of themselves as middle-class, he argued, no longer did. Last year, a Pew Research Center survey confirmed those Americans’ assessment. The share of income going to middle-class Americans declined from 62 percent in 1970 to 43 percent in 2014, while the share going to upper-income households rose from 29 percent to 49 percent. The erosion of middle-class America has been afoot for 40 years, but it was the financial crisis of 2008 and the tepid recovery that followed it that have shaken American politics to its foundations. Post-collapse, the debt that millions of families amassed to maintain their living standards was called in. Working Americans over 50 who lost their jobs found few comparable opportunities available, while younger Americans found that making a living—one ...

Gas town slowdown tests Aussie leader's election mettle 29.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
In the once bustling port town of Gladstone in Australia’s northeastern Queensland state, more than a dozen for-lease signs hang in store windows along the main street. An office set up by a local liquefied natural gas plant to field jobs queries is among those lying empty. Thousands of construction workers have packed up and moved on since multi-billion dollar LNG projects on nearby Curtis Island went into the less labor-intensive production phase in recent months. That’s left Gladstone at the ...

Standing in Front of Garbage, Trump Recycles Terrible Ideas About Free Trade 29.6.2016 Mother Jones
Donald Trump launched extensive attacks on free trade, China, and Hillary Clinton during a speech on Tuesday in Pennsylvania, pledging to renegotiate trade deals and repeatedly promising American workers better jobs and more tariff protections. "Globalization has made the financial elite who donate to politicians very wealthy, but it has left millions of our workers with nothing but poverty and heartache," Trump said. "I want you to imagine how much better our future can be if we declare independence from the elites who've led us to one financial and foreign policy disaster after another." Standing in front a wall of crushed aluminum cans at a steel plant near Pittsburgh, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee outlined a seven-point plan that included withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which he called "the death blow for American manufacturing"; renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (and withdrawing from the treaty if Canada and Mexico don't agree); and taking numerous ...

Trump promises to 'declare independence from the elites'—like himself—who have ruined the economy 29.6.2016 Daily Kos
Republicans will no doubt be heartened to see that, once again, Donald Trump proved Tuesday that he has the ability to read from a prepared speech—this time on trade. Here's the quick and dirty on his themes: 1) Voting for Trump = Economic Independence = Fast 2) Bill and Hillary = Job Killers 3) NAFTA and TPP = Never Forget Here was his secondary theme: 1) China = Cheaters and Stealers (very presidential) Trump started out by implicating himself in "rigging the system" against American workers so he could turn a profit. "Our politicians have aggressively pursued a policy of globalization, moving our jobs, our wealth and our factories to Mexico and overseas. Globalization has made the financial elite who donate to politicians very, very wealthy. I used to be one of them," Trump admitted. "The people who rigged the system for their benefit will do anything and say anything to keep things exactly the way they are." Hmm. Ok, but now, Trump assures us, he's a man of the people. "Under a Trump presidency, ...
