If politicians want public support for climate policy then they'd better rethink their approach. The way things are now the costs are born locally for benefits dispersed globally.

We're missign the point. His lies, her lies - It won't matter which of the most unpopular, divisive candidates in history wins the election - it will further erode confidence in government  making the next four years the most chaotic in generations.

...also: That's right. Canada and North Korea are the only 2 countries where you officially can't spend your own money on health treatment. There's a powerful lobby that would rather you spend a third of a year on a waiting list if you are only in pain and its not life threatening. The Lunacy Surrounding That Voracious Canadian Money Pit

Complexity Failure Crisis & Panic

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

Intensive Government management of our economy cannot solve the problems we have. There are too many variables involved. Massive debt problems, commodity prices, currency values, the actions of Governments at all three levels, International Government actions. They've all led to untenable derivative positions and banking system problems could trigger a significant liquidation panic at any time.


Complexity Failure Crisis & Panic

Have you noticed how often like the finance department the Bank of Canada and all the major financial institutions have to revise their forecasts for the economy? I’d say the word relentlessly is appropriate. So what's the problem? Are they incompetent or are they lying to us? 

No, it's because the challenge of predicting the actions of all consumers, businesses both domestically and internationally, governments at all three levels, commodity prices, currency values mean all those variables which go into predicting economic growth, and have an impact on economic growth are so numerous and complex. I think that's pretty straightforward to understand.
