Prof Michael Hudson steps into a neo-con future to position where society could be in years to come. Just why are the Lloyd Blankfein’s (Goldman Sachs CEO) of the world so confused about the state of global politics? FYI – one of the many hats I wear is as Michael’s webmaster.

Show Notes
Karl delves into the inequality issue by looking into two recent reports on the topic. What is truly driving inequality? Some shocking after-effects of the tax loopholes are being felt by the young and low income earners. It’s always fun here on the Renegades eh? Any tips on how to stay positive?

The show header? The only way to rebalance the inequality of their only being one possible GPS location on the planet is to instill a land tax. Then any economic advantage is shared by the community.

HILDA report

A borrower on a 30-year mortgage spends 27 years paying for something that isn’t a house

If people do not have equal access to land value, what it really means is that they have no right to be a member of a community — no right to occupy the physical universe except in its remotest (rent-free) locations — and a civilisation that founds itself on keeping people apart like this cannot masquerade as a civilisation for long.

Show Notes
Karl runs through the immense advantages property investors enjoy. The list starts at 27 but how many do we end up with? Whilst these advantages exist at the macro and the micro, those locked out of housing face little but policy fraud, as regular listeners will be aware. How much economic pain will the locked out face before a little economic study helps rebalance this supposed level playing field?
