    German and EU leadership will attempt to make Britain’s exit from the EU next year as harsh as possible, pour encourager les autres. They must be scared to death that a strong economic performance in the UK will boost euroskepticism elsewhere.

    Duh this was gonna happen. The controversy is whether racist is actually a pejorative. If one assumes, mystically, that we are one humanity the question is should the rich squander its wealth on itself or the poor. This, to my knowledge, is an eternal debate, one that probes the very nature of what it is to be human. Leftists and rightists are equally pigheaded in the confidence they have that they know the answer. The techcomm type doesn’t seem to have an end in mind besides technology for technology’s sake, while the end of technology should be to help people and enhance life. If helping people and enhancing life is a good then it is hypocritical to neglect the dirt races. Cold indifference is immoral as immoderate warmth is immoral.

    Nationalism continues to vindicate itself as globalism falls.

    Nationalism is just proto-globalism. The problem is bureaucratic statism, not which gay cult runs the bureaucracy.

    Bureaucratic statism as opposed to what?

    Central bankers have been trying to create inflation for 8 years and failing. British voters did it in 3 months and are reviled. Krugman and the other inflationist economists are like Switch in the Matrix about to get zapped, “Not like this…not like this….”

    To be fair, Krugman has honestly been almost anti-anti-brexit about the whole affair. It’s actually been kind of interesting reading him write about it, because his current stance is actually pretty consistent with what he’s been saying for the last 8 +/- years. Whether you think his perspective is correct or not is another matter altogether, but I think it’s been to his credit that he’s stuck to his guns rather than being a complete hypocrite about the affair, when his own model of the world he’s been using pretty clearly predicts that maybe brexit isn’t going to lead to the complete collapse of the British economy, like his gobalist peers have been screeching.

    Thanks. These exceptions to the rule are popping up more these days.

    GDP is a useless statisic. Stop using nonsense policy wonk voodoo just because it agrees with your narrative.

    The expected retort is that Brexit hasn’t yet happened, so these forecasts mean little. When Brexit is underway, then let’s see the forecasts. That’s the POV to contend with.

    I’d expect the lead-in to be worse than the actuality. Pure panic promotion and PR manipulation, without any facts on the ground. Once Brexit occurs the advantages of re-orientation to the Anglosphere and other commercially-inclined cultures (and away from dirigiste continental-fascist influences) can begin.

    That 1.9% growth is considered something to brag about has a certain postmodern quality all of its own.

    Twitter isn’t about factual judiciousness or historical perspective. It’s about demoralising the opposition (with dank memes).

    Truer than you realise. Prior to the Great Revolution or so, the average growth rate was bellow one percent. ‘Post-modern’ indeed!

  • Jeremy Schokelfeier Says:

    I should like to draw attention to the fact that these growth rates are an order of a magnitude greater than the ones experienced through the 17th century and the first half of the 18th century. They are so good, in fact, given a bundle of facts “on the ground” that I suspect they are not entirely accurate.

    The ‘orientalisation’ of the “west’ continues apace: doctored statistics will become more and more ‘useful’ henceforth.
