Well, someone they have to pay Obama's post presidential speaking fees, now don't they.
The security exchanges trade at least a thousand trillion dollars worth of commodities and financial products. There seems to be no way to make any country pay more than slave wages but the environmental costs of let's say mining could be returned to the area where restoration is needed by a securities transfer tax as small as a percent. The UN and WHO are already in place. Colorado just saw the bright orange toxic waste flowing into its river. The residents of the Congo region see it daily. We have a half million abandoned mines created by now bankrupt companies that can't be taxed or fined to repair the damage. A tax on gold futures and options could stabilize them permanently.
I wish the exchanges didn't own the congress and Hillary.
This is an excellent article and this organization has given us a valuable resource.
Western colonial powers plundered the world under their control since the 1400's, briefly there was a global colonial collapse after WWII only to rear it's ugly head again in New York. This time around the colonists don't use the old tactics of permanent occupying armies, they use treaties, the IMF and the World bank to bribe the corrupt leaders of mostly poor 3rd world countries into borrowing large sums of money for bogus projects and get hooked into paying back exorbitant sums in taxpayer funds rendering their own poor to permanent state of miserable poverty. Lately however not being satisfied with the interest payments from the global poor it was decided by the same banking loan sharks to create what we now know as the EUROPEAN union. The purpose behind creation of the EU was/is to later pass treaties like TTIP, NAFTA, and TTP, in one fell swoop. The ultimate goal being the establishment of a global feudal system where the feudal lords mainly from the US, Israel and some insignificant partners from Europe (The English lords). For the rest of humanity I'll be the good old fashioned surf's trying to live on little crumbs.
