Why was Club of Rome invited to attend the W.E.F. in Davos?

DAVOS, the 2020 World Economic Forum (WEF), had special guests from the Club of Rome last month, and the question is why would the richest folks in the world invite an organization publicly advocating programs that supposedly restrict free markets and reduce capitalist profits?

The answer is population control, a goal shared by both the very rich and some of the very idealistic. To them, fewer humans means less depletion of natural resources, thus prolonging these assets’ availability to those of us remaining.

That proposed paucity benefits the rich, who would control the size of your family, house and car, and inspires the utopians, who seem convinced that having less, means more virtue, and that sacrifice is a required rite for the righteous.

Which side convinced the other that world population decline was good for everyone? Was it the protected people at the top of the food chain, or the bottom dwellers most affected by human numbers and forced austerity?

Most of the Davos’ agendas look boring, but the very rich at this year’s confab should have been fascinated with the Club’s presentation on a growing global population that can’t be sustained by limited natural resources.

These bankers and industrialists see value in the Club of Rome’s austerity and solutions. Better the public should focus on thermostats, rather than their own inadequate wages. Nothing could thrill the people at the top more than a working class urging a lower standard of living for itself.

But you aren’t invited as a featured guest at the biggest party of the year if you aren’t a good friend. Strange irony is that activist groups, protesting outside the conference, seemed to agree with the Club’s aspirations, or did it only appear that way?

The Club and the deep pocket elites agree the danger is clear – too many mouths, and not enough food. That result spells unhappy citizens and a threat to folks whose highest priority is protecting their property and power.

Founders of the Club concluded a half century ago that there are only two solutions to an over-population disaster:

  1. Limit, or preferably cut population growth.
  2. Reduce resources used by the public.

The battle to fulfill goal #1 has not been very successful.

Population has soared, despite systematic promotion of birth control, easier access to safe abortion, delayed marriages, extended school attendance for girls that reduces number of birthing years, as well as stagnant wages that require both husband and wife to work – creating prohibitive childcare expenses after one, or at most, two children.

Asian and European populations have dropped in recent decades. Meanwhile the U.S. has enjoyed growth since WW2, but that has now fallen to a non-replacement rate of 1.9 per couple

Another way to reduce population is through mass migration into Western democracies from poor nations. The theory is that newcomers will adopt the self-imposed reproductive limitations of advanced societies and have fewer children.

Solution #2 is working, Reduced resources for manufacturing, higher expenses for home and factory construction, limited financial access to cars and use of planes – all result in a lower standard of living in developed nations

The Club Of Rome was formed in 1968, and immediately focused on population.

A prominent part of the Club of Rome’s agenda was population reduction. In 1972 a group of Club “scientists” under the United Nation’s (UN) direction, published a paper called ‘Limits to Growth, which called for greatly reduced human population in the name of “saving the environment.”

This effort was directly linked to another agenda – the institution of a global government that could handle and enforce population controls on a wide scale. -Wikipedia

Here is a quote from The First Global Revolution, written by Alexander King and Bertrand Schneider, and published by Pantheon Books 19 years later in 1991. This Club of Rome treatise follows up on the The Limits of Growth:

In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill. In their totality and their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat, which must be confronted by everyone together.

But in designating these dangers as the enemy, we fall into the trap, which we have already warned readers about, namely mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention in natural processes. and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then is humanity itself.

Another interesting Club of Rome quote:

Historically, fertility and mortality rates have fallen with higher levels of education and economic opportunity for women and girls. It is thus expected that current advances in human capital will impact the future size and age composition of the global population.

In a paper titled ‘Proper Earth Government: A Framework And Ways To Create It’ the UN’s Robert Muller explaine how climate change could be used to convince us of the need for universal government, including a new “global religion”, population controls and diminished nationalism.

Many of America’s biggest companies paid no federal income tax last year, or had credits under new corporate-friendly tax law

The Warner Estate – fancy digs in Beverly Hills for Jeffrey Bezos, the owner of Amazon, Blue Origin and the Washington Post. The modern King Midas (or Uncle Scrooge?) just paid $165 million – a new record for California RE.

What a guy! “Jeff” Bezos, the world’s richest person, has been paid the same $81,840 salary from Amazon for two decades.

Perhaps, because he needed extra cash last year to pay grocery bills, divorce lawyers and utilities, Bezos sold $1.8 billion of his Amazon stock, and kept about $1.44 billion after 20% federal capital gains tax.

Meanwhile, Amazon wage earners were hit with up to a 37% income tax. Even a single employee making $40k pays a higher rate than 20%.

The Bezos’ $1.8 billion sale, unlike Amazon employees’ wages, was also not subject to the 7.65% FICA tax, which supports Social Security and Medicare. That exemption for the rich saved him another $138 million.

All together, he avoided about $300 million in taxes – thanks to that 2017 capital gains tax rate change, passed with the combined support of Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.

Following the huge stock sale, Bezos still owned about 56,000,000 shares of Amazon  – each worth $2,135 today.

Despite a recent divorce settlement, he is still the richest person in the world with about $115 billion, and ex-wife Mackenzie is worth $38 billion, making her the third richest woman in the world.

At this point, my corporate-crony-loving friends are thinking:

Bezos may not pay much in taxes, but Amazon is still a big tax payer, even though the bipartisan tax bill also “reformed” the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%.

Congress and the White House promised that drastically lowering the corporate tax rate also meant removing corporate loopholes in the final bill.

Guess what? The government lowered the rate, but the tax avoidance continued.

In millions of dollars, the following are what big companies earned in IRS credits, instead of paying corporate income tax last year for 2018 profits. The red percentages are the minus income tax rate they paid.

The next time you are flying Delta or JetBlue, think zero taxes and zero seat room.

Your Starbucks latte may cost big bucks for fancy coffee, but remember just your single server may pay more total  income tax than the entire coffee giant with 2,818 locations – combined.

Did someone say last year was a fluke, and corporations like Amazon usually pay their fair share?

Wrong! Last year was the second year in a row that Amazon paid no income taxes. The projection for this year is they may fork over about a miserable 1% on $13 billion in profits.

One final note. That $165 million Bezos spent on his new Beverly Hills mansion was just 0.13% of his total fortune.

That means Bezos can afford 768 more $165 million estates.

And that includes setting aside dollars for the clock.

Of course, it would be a different story if he and Amazon had to pay taxes just like the rest of us…

Corporate private cities – no rights, no votes and no protests!

Who needs a government?

What’s so great about the right to vote for your local, state or national leaders?

Why not allow a corporation decide how much to spend on your schools, police, roads and hospitals?

If these questions sound outlandish, you haven’t heard of the newest trend – private cities – where a chief operating officer and a corporate gang replace democracy and representative government with trickle down domination.

Sarah Moser, associate professor of geography at McGill University, warns us:

A private city is kind of like a giant mall.

If management doesn’t like you or the way you dress, they can theoretically expel you and you don’t have recourse to challenge this, as it is private property.

They don’t have mayors. They don’t have elected city councils. They have CEOs. So it’s a completely corporate model. There are no elected officials to appeal to and if you are seen as a troublemaker, you could potentially be kicked out.

Private cities are big business, no longer some tiny experiment.

More than 15 new private cities and dozens more new urban areas are being developed on public-private partnerships throughout the world today.

Forest City, a huge $100 billion new city, is being built in Malaysia on reclaimed land, just up the coast from Danga Bay by China’s Country Garden.

“It’s China’s largest property developer creating a private gated city from scratch in the ocean. They’ve had to engage in one of the largest land reclamation projects in the world to create a new city for 700,000 residents,” Moser said.

I think what’s particularly intriguing about this new city is that it’s geared toward Chinese nationals, not toward Malaysians …. There are no Malaysian police or military allowed into the project. So who’s policing the place? It’s private security guards.

In Springfield, Australia, a private city was built from scratch on 7,000 acres of bush land by that country’s 39th richest man. It now has 40,000 residents.

Morocco is building 20 new cities. Tanzania is constructing nine.

Saudi Arabia’s $500 billion mega-city – Neom – that will be 33 times the acreage of New York City

NEOM, a new city for one million residents in Saudi Arabia, includes plans for robot maids, cloud-seeding technology, and an artificial moon. In 2017, they hired three of the world’s largest consultancy firms — McKinsey & Co, Boston Consulting, and Oliver Wyman — to advise them.

Moser said another example is King Abdullah Economic City, a mega-project in Saudi Arabia:

It’s completely private, and it’s run by a company that’s actually listed on the Saudi Stock Exchange. So technically, I could buy stock in King Abdullah Economic City and have some say over the city that residents would not have …

In the 1960s, these (cities) were state projects for the greater good.

In contrast, I would say the majority of the cities today are fueled by corporations, and these corporations see unprecedented opportunities to make money …. IBM, Cisco, Google, Microsoft, they’re all in the new city game now.

“There are many ambiguities in private cities about the rights of residents, the legal protections they have, and the legal recourse they have if something goes wrong,” Moser explained.

CEOs are fired not for failing the residents, but for failing the shareholders. When a city is private, the priority of management is profit, not the needs of citizens.

Moser said the United Nations predicts 68% of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050:

They’re claiming that … the housing shortages can be addressed through the construction of new cities, and this is preferable to the endless squatter settlements and slums that we’re seeing popping up everywhere.

But in reality, a lot of these new cities are being targeted at the elites — people who globally own five to 10 properties already.

For example, in Kenya the middle class earns about $20 U.S. a day, and units in these new cities that are being created in Kenya often cost $150,000 U.S. It would take five lifetimes to actually pay off that condo.

Songdo – a private “smart” city

Songdo is a 130,000-person new city, owned and operated by Gale International and POSCO in South Korea. This smart city was developed in part by technology giant Cisco and includes a “living lab” for Cisco technologies.

“Everything in Songdo is wired. There are sensors on everything, and CCTV cameras everywhere. This is a way of increasing efficiency in the city, reducing crime … There are a lot of critics saying that this is too high a cost to pay, and we should be concerned about privacy,” Moser said.

She explained that new smart cities around the globe are “kind of like the Sidewalk Labs project on steroids.” Sidewalk Labs is a subsidiary of Google’s owner, Alphabet Inc. It plans to create a smart city, Quayside, on Toronto’s waterfront.

“People are suspicious, rightfully so, of a technology company’s role and what they’re standing to gain and what we stand to lose. And also wondering, well, is Toronto so broken that we can’t use existing mechanisms for urban development?” Moser said.

Financial reporter Wade Shepard explained that “in some ways, private cities are viewed as a ‘win-win’ type of shortcut … governments can get their new developments built for them via private capital, rather than tax dollars, and still take a cut of the earnings, while private firms can profit at each stage of the urbanization process,”

Shepherd said the private city movement allows drastic social changes:

Private cities, kind of like special economic zones, often have their own sets of rules which often run perpendicular to the laws of the nations they are geographically located within.

They are … a swath of land purchased by a private company, that can be run as that company sees fit.

They are wild cards where the conventions of the broader country don’t apply, where new labor regulations, tax codes, financial laws, business and property registration systems, and education models can be implemented and tested.

123 in Congress want to import more foreign workers to replace Americans, reduce wages and break a Donald Trump promise

Treachery in Congress as 123 Republicans and half as many Democrats in the Senate and House have begged the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) acting secretary, Chad Wolf, to ship more low-wage foreign workers into the United States.

In a January 27 letter to Wolf, 26 Republican Senators and 97 GOP House members demanded DHS allow businesses to import an additional 30,000 foreign workers on the H-2B visa program for blue-collar U.S. jobs this year.

While President Donald Trump was at rallies (campaigning!) and calling for more American jobs and higher wages, many in his GOP lawmaker army were urging the opposite.

Trump was not copied on the letter – a cute ploy. The President is Wolf’s boss, so sending a missive just to the DHS Secretary would normally be out of bounds without copying Trump. It’s similar to sending someone’s minor child an invitation to a murderer’s electrocution without telling the parents.

This subterfuge happens often. Every federal government department ultimately reports to the President, not to Congress, but by sidestepping Trump, Congress can make him immune from criticism of any real job-cutting intentions.

For the past year Trump has been shifting conversation to the benefits of so-called “legal” immigration, which in human terms means adding tens of thousands of imported workers, so American companies can pay less and make more profits.

Even building the wall has been a slow walk.  Most of the estimated 100 miles so far has been in place of old fences. Worst of all, some sections of the new construction look ready to collapse – because of high winds!

The new wall is also vulnerable to portable saws that can easily rip through its steel slats. Stone, concrete, Great Wall of China – has anyone in the White House read “Building Walls for Dummies?”

Every year, U.S. companies are allowed to import low-skilled H-2B foreign workers to take blue-collar, non-agricultural jobs. For some time, the H-2B visa program has been pushed by businesses to bring in cheaper, foreign workers and has contributed to blue-collar Americans having their wages reduced.

“We urge DHS to release the maximum number of additional visas without delay,” the Senators and House members wrote. “These vital American businesses depend on the expeditious release of a sufficient number of additional visas.”

This letter ignored the 11 million Americans, who are currently unemployed, underemployed, working part-time and seeking full time jobs, or have given up looking for employment and aren’t included in the official labor reports.

The H-2B visa program does not include farm workers.

Many businesses use foreign workers to drag down the wages of Americans in landscaping, conservation work, the meatpacking industry, the construction industry, and fishing jobs, according to a study by the Center for Immigration Studies.

Meanwhile, five Republican and Democrat Senators Richard Blumenthal, Tom Cotton, Dianne Feinstein, Chuck Grassley, and Dick Durbin have asked DHS not to bring any more foreign workers to the U.S. with the H-2B visa program:

While we understand the needs of employers who legitimately rely on seasonal H-2B workers if American workers cannot meet the demand, we continue to have concerns about the harmful impact that the program has on both American workers and foreign guest workers.

Studies have shown that the H-2B visa program leaves immigrant workers vulnerable to wage theft, abuse, and trafficking.

The five Senators said imported workers “are often at the mercy of their employers and H-2B workers may also be too scared to speak out against poor working conditions.”

They may also have difficulties accessing the justice system to protect themselves from employer retaliation if they do speak out. These realities of the H-2B program, as it operates today, incentivize unscrupulous employers to hire H-2B workers instead of American workers and create poor working conditions for immigrant workers and American workers alike.

We do not believe that an increase in the number of H-2B visas is in the interests of either American workers or H-2B visa holders.

While Cotton and Grassley are longtime supporters of the American worker, it was surprising to see agreement on H-2B reduction by Dianne Feinstein (Trilateral Commission), Richard Blumenthal and  Richard Durbin, who usually vote to support increased visa quotas..

Columnist John Binder reported last month that “in the construction industry, wage suppression is significant, with H-2B foreign workers being offered more than 20 percent less than their American counterparts.”

In the fishing industry, foreign workers were offered more than 30 percent less for their jobs than Americans in the field. In the meatpacking industry, foreign workers got 23 percent less pay than Americans.

Late last year, the Labor Department banned a South Dakota construction company from using the H-2B visa program after they discovered the employer was importing foreign workers in order to cut labor costs, then forcing those foreign workers to pay for their own housing, visa fees, and transportation costs — all of which are supposed to be covered by H-2B visa employers.
