The Corporation (film)

Dennis Marker, author of Fifteen Steps to Corporate Feudalism: How the Rich Convinced America’s Middle Class to Eliminate Itself, is scheduled to be my guest on the July 15, 2012 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb on Oracle Broadcasting, from 1 to 3 PM Eastern.

I first heard of Dennis’ book from his June 29, 2012 interview on Charles Giuliani’s Truth Hertz show (starting in the second hour), and want to specifically delve into his research into the scam of global free trade.

Most recently, I mentioned free trade in my article, June 26, 2012: A day of important articles on LewRockwell.com, about the Gary North article:

“Put Away Your Badge, Holster Your Gun, and Stop Trying To Loot Me
Gary North’s message for right-wing protectionists.
– Referring to indirect taxes as “loot[ing]” is hyperbolic rhetoric. It is also ironic that a supposed opponent of world government would argue against constitutional and voluntary methods of taxation that serve as a bulwark against world government by promoting national borders.”

On September 21, 2011, I guest hosted “Crash! Are You Ready?”, and extensively covered my article, Paul Craig Roberts points out a theoretical breakdown of modern-day free trade, and made an announcement about the upcoming 2011 Rethinking AIDS conference in Washington, D.C. from December 1 to 3, 2011.

In the first segment, I interviewed Jeff Gleason of LPC Survival.

Tune in to George Whitehurst Berry’s, “Crash! Are You Ready?” every Monday to Friday from 11 AM to noon Eastern on the Genesis Communications Network.

For the most extensive series of interviews on the AIDS scam from 2008-2010, see George’s interviews here.

Paul Craig Roberts

I came across a 2004 appearance made by Paul Craig Roberts on C-SPAN (around 12:00), where he had realized an actual flaw with the academic framework that underpins the rampant rush toward more and more so-called free trade.

Namely, that David Ricardo’s theory of comparative advantage rests on a premise that no longer applies in our current situation — that the factors of production (labor and capital) are as mobile as traded goods.

Since the end of the Cold War, with the vast freed-up labor pool in China and India, the rise of the internet and mobile technologies, as well as the vastly deregulated transportation, financial and communications sectors, labor and capital are now even more mobile than traded goods (and even services).

Therefore, we not only have an intuitive basis for rejecting these so-called free trade deals, but an academic one, and the timing is all the more important with the pending free trade deals with South Korea, Panama and Colombia set to be ratified.

As for the solution, I think that Ian Fletcher has it. A flat tariff on all imported goods and services, with the only question being the rate (he suggests 30%).
