    Has anyone else noticed how retarded the copyright infringement war waged by the entertainment industry is getting?

    If you thought that calling on the police force of a foreign nations to seize assets and make arrests at gun point in front of children for “alleged” infringement was a stretch (as was the case with Kim Dotcom), check out the latest money grubbing tactics: https://www.aardvark.co.nz/daily/2012/0221.shtml#continue

    I have to say, I thought this would all end badly a long time ago. It is truly amazing how long this “game” can be drawn out.

    I’m glad I skipped the movies. Real life is scary enough.

    NZ, the war on the citizenry is really heating up.

    Launder $10-$375 billion drug money… no police show up…

    Sell milk (the real stuff – raw) and get SWAT teamed…

    Bizzaro world, indeed. The problem is nobody cares about anyone else getting pounded into the ground by the system enough to do anything about it – and then they wail and gnash teeth when the system gets around to pummeling them.

    @nzsanctuary Even more amazing is the goon squad police going along with it.Debtor’s prisons to music sharing prisons, a century of progress.

    A few terms of the recycled bailout deal that should sit well with the people of Greece :huh:

    # Greek parliament to vote on a constitutional provision to ensure debt servicing payments prioritized
    # Quarterly interest rate payments to be paid into a segregated account
    # A permanent ‘troika’ task force will be in Greece to ensure adherence to the terms and conditions of the package

    @candace – I shudder to think how badly it will end when this Ponzi does collapse.

    I think a key to the situation is in your first paragraph. Why would any sane person watch a movie like Saw, less pay money to watch it? Hundreds of millions, billions, of insane people?

    and so it goes…

    What would be the impediment to instituting a Greek Euro…a regional currency on a national scale ala the Chiemgau experiment, which seems to be doing well?Extraordinary crises call for extraordinary solutions. The root problem is of course a monetary design flaw. Eurobonds or whatever: pumping more money into Greece can’t save it, because nothing keeps that money from flowing right back out again to wherever investment returns are the greatest. It’s like pumping water into a barrel with the bung hole pointing down.

    What’s needed is a barrel with no hole: a monetary design that will keep the available money circulating quickly in Greece (etc.), rather than allowing it to drain off to wherever “smart” money is going today. A workable, comprehensive proposal for such a design has recently been put forward by two German complementary economists, Christian Gelleri and Thomas Mayer. Calling it “Express Money”, they envision Greece issuing, under the authority of its own sovereign government and central bank, a special euro with two new features: a spending incentive and a leakage inhibitor. (It’s legal: complementary money is expressly provided for in EU law.) Money that circulates quickly and that can’t flee easily will kickstart the Greek economy, reduce unemployment, increase tax revenues, and generally turn Greece back into the attractive place it used to be before the bankers and financiers got giddy with their debt swaps and derivatives. Read about it (in English, German, and Portuguese; soon in Greek) at http://www.eurorettung.org.
