But the climate crisis in that period was not confined to Japan only. The following paragraph from Global Crisis gives a flavour of what was a widespread crisis in much of Asia:

How intangible capital may explain rising labour productivity during recessions



“The sharp drop in intangible investment contributes to a decline in actual economic output greater than that measured by official government GDP accounts. This implies that in the actual U.S. economy, true labor productivity declined significantly during the recent recession—a finding consistent with established aggregate theory based on the neoclassical model of economic growth. Thus, McGrattan and Prescott’s experiment solves the labor productivity puzzle by reconciling the apparent mismatch between theory and economic data that show labor productivity bucking the GDP trend. “The addition of intangible capital and non- neutral technology to the model was crucial in accounting for high productivity and low GDP during the period,” they write.”

Massive losses, for nothing

croaking cassandra

All sorts of items of public spending have attracted attention since March 2020 when the Covid-related spending really began. Some of the things money has been spent on – the wage subsidy for example – were large but necessary and appropriate. Some things, often quite small in scale, were pure waste. Others were dressed up under a Covid label but were really just poor-quality (but quite large scale) spending.

One of the items that has had almost no attention is the huge losses that have resulted from the Reserve Bank’s Large Scale Asset Purchase (LSAP) programme. I guess it is a bit harder to report, since neither the Bank nor the government puts out press releases boasting of losing $4bn or so.

The government has, with no parliamentary authorisation or scrutiny, agreed to idemnify the Reserve Bank for any losses it incurs on the LSAP. That, at least, has the…

YOU WANNA KNOW THE TRUTH, Nah didn’t think so.

No Minister

If the bunch of special needs people assembling at Gleneagles resort for the latest extravaganza for those luminaries who have their snouts well submerged in the swill trough in the name of Climate are so far up their own back passages, no information can reach through their egotistical hypocrisy. You think that is an OTT statement, dwell for one moment on the almost unbelievable moras that surrounds their transport provision for the seventy five Km journey from the airport to their swill trough in the luxury surrounds where another pointless exercise in insanity played out at the after match of the 1977 Commonwealth Heads meeting to solve the ending of apartheid in The Republic of South Africa.

Also Scotland, 2021

A fleet of Teslas have been purchased to ferry the elites for this latest waste of money but alas there is only one single charging station for those particular vehicles…

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. - J Robert Oppenheimer.
