Your clarity and insight is penetrating. I appreciate your skills in letting The Facts speak for themselves without spin.
Your artful communication speaks well of the potential for important topics being introduced into a collective narrative and processed with collaboration and skillful resolution.

You asked for ideas, and I hope this goes to your email as well…

I have a topic to share which you may have already probed. The Dot Com buildup events subsequent to the Bubble/Crash of mid late 90’s, and into 2000 undercut a new brand of talent from getting started for a decade or more.

After reading family of secrets, and seeing business as usual using very disturbing intel / manipulation tricks, I thought of the players most threatened by the tech world.

K Street

The good companies and the startups both got the stuffing knocked out of the park while these above industries were flatfooted in this dept, and seeing what is finally coming to fruition today…

Disruptive talented entrepreneurs proving the old systems can be improved for the better.
Silicone Valley and tech is giving us social networks(ie: Arab spring), your incredible research enhancements, (transparency,accountability),
electric cars, power grid options etc.

This is potentially happening again with overvalued stocks, as apposed to natural growth metrics being practiced.
Who is watching Wall Street?

Does the SEC have stand down orders ?
Are they understaffed ?
Does K street own them ?

Capitalism is not broken, it is being overcooked on demand in disturbing cycles.

Are we unaware of the moral hazard created by the software algorithms used in high frequency computing, and their interplay with World events nudged by interested parties.

Who requests these algorithms to be written ?

Begging for forgiveness, well after the fact with fearful end of world language into a primed disaster consciousness produced the bail out. A group of individuals saw this coming long before it happened and were unheard.
Where are they now?

Is there a way to peel back the curtain on this continuing practice ?

Thanks again for your great work .

robots. Many bought the story about Oswald being the assassin. A majority chose to believe LBJ and his lies. Russ Baker has not been on Fox News because the media is too busy feeding us nonsense.

No, not anti-personnel mines, or bunker buster explosives, but MINING – AND they have been scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan to “fast track mining operations”

Comment on A Thousand Points of Blight (January 8, 1991) by Sterling Seagrave https://russbaker.com/2010/05/21/a-thousand-points-of-blight/comment-page-1/#comment-878 Sat, 29 Oct 2011 16:01:00 +0000 http://russbaker.com/?p=138#comment-878 Really terrific piece, Russ. I’ll need some time to absorb it all. Just one note is that Southern Air Transport goes back much earlier than 1970, was set up by the same guys who set up Air America from CAT. And I think Aderholt’s name is “Heinie” (to those who like him, which I do, not Harry). More later. Sterling
