Добре е понякога да си спомняме, че икономиката не е общество, парите не са щастие и както всеки синтетичен измерител БВП сам по себе си не е самоцел.

“Above all, said the man who practically invented the concept of economic growth, GDP should never be confused with wellbeing. It is a warning we have roundly ignored.”

Започнах да копирам изречение по изречение есенцията на статията и извратеният бизнес модел за изкупуване на съвсем здрави фирми за печалба.
Но постепенно изкопирай цялата статия. Тя цялата е есенция.
Не че това е нов начин за съсипване за сметка на работниците. Цялата финансова дерегулация от времето на Рейгън и Тачър води до това.

Ето защо науката просто не трябва да се оставя в частни ръце. По думите на самите капиталистически богове.
Икономиката им НЯМА нужда от това да сте здрави или да оздравеете. Тя има нужда от болни хора с рецепти в ръце, по възможност за цял живот.
Обществото има съвсем други нужди.
Но според Нео-либерализмът ние не трябва да живеем в общество, а в икономика...

Много интересно интервю. Преминете няколко от първите въпроса на диагонал, но нататък си струва всеки ред.

Why are we all resulters?

Knowing the outcome infects us. We’re rational beings that think things are supposed to make sense. It’s very hard for us to wrap our heads around a bad outcome when we didn’t do anything wrong. Or that there’s a good outcome that’s just random. We’re really uncomfortable with randomness in that way.

“If those figures were extrapolated, tens of thousands of apps, if not more, were likely to have systematically culled “private and personally identifiable” data belonging to hundreds of millions of users, Parakilas said.

The ease with which it was possible for anyone with relatively basic coding skills to create apps and start trawling for data was a particular concern, he added.”

Ужасно (в прекия и преносния смисъл) интересна история, 100% истинска. Готова за филм и напълно реална. Натиск за печалби и ниски разходи и последствията им за 34 удавници. В реално вече, чрез собствените им думи на запис.
45 минути четене, но си струват, защото историята е по-интересна от книга.

“Disasters at sea do not get the public attention that aviation accidents do, in part because the sea swallows the evidence. It has been reported that a major merchant ship goes down somewhere in the world every two or three days; most are ships sailing under flags of convenience, with underpaid crews and poor safety records. The El Faro tragedy attracted immediate attention for several reasons. El Faro was a U.S.-flagged ship with a respected captain—and it should have been able to avoid the hurricane. Why didn’t it? Add to that mystery this simple fact: the sinking of El Faro was the worst U.S. maritime disaster in three decades.”

The problem with the stories we’re telling our kids is that they foster fear and competition. This false paradigm affects high-achieving kids, for whom a rigid view of the path to success creates unnecessary anxiety, and low-achieving kids, many of whom conclude at a young age that they will never be successful, and adopt a “why try at all?” attitude. Many of these young people engage in one of the most debilitating forms of self-talk, telling themselves either, “I have to, but I can’t,” or “I have to, but I hate it.”

"Да се спира предаване в обществена телевизия заради нисък рейтинг е като да се спре в училището таблицата за умножение, защото има нисък рейтинг, и да се замени с „Шушана“, защото има висок.
Обществената телевизия затова се издържа от бюджета, защото има функция, която не е печеливша, за разлика от частните комерсиални телевизии.
Обществената телевизия трябва да върши работа от обществена значимост.
От нея не се очаква да печели и забавлява, а да образова, възпитава, да сплотява обществото около ценности. "

Тази потенциална плеяда от престъпления се разиграва далеч не само при избирането на Тръмп - най-голямото им постижение досега.

Долният цитат е от НАЧАЛОТО на операциите на финансираната от Мърсър машина за манипулации.

“In the history of bad ideas, this turned out to be one of the worst. The job was research director across the SCL group, a private contractor that has both defence and elections operations. Its defence arm was a contractor to the UK’s Ministry of Defence and the US’s Department of Defense, among others. Its expertise was in “psychological operations” – or psyops – changing people’s minds not through persuasion but through “informational dominance”, a set of techniques that includes rumour, disinformation and fake news.

SCL Elections had used a similar suite of tools in more than 200 elections around the world, mostly in undeveloped democracies that Wylie would come to realise were unequipped to defend themselves”

No income to make you the Middle Class anymore. Future belongs to the rentiers and the shareholding "investors". Get used to it
"At a time when the Trump administration is promising to make America great again by restoring old-school manufacturing jobs, AI researchers aren’t taking him too seriously. They know that these jobs are never coming back, thanks in no small part to their own research, which will eliminate so many other kinds of jobs in the years to come, as well. At Asilomar, they looked at the real US economy, the real reasons for the “hollowing out” of the middle class. The problem isn’t immigration—far from it. The problem isn’t offshoring or taxes or regulation. It’s technology."
