Power of the Market - The Pencil (by LibertyPen)
A great example how the market works. Unlike what our overlords think how its works. Not one person can gather all the resources and make a pencil. It comes from all corners of the earth.
We Become Silent - The Last Days Of Health Freedom
International award-winning filmmaker Kevin P. Miller of Well TV announced the release of a new documentary about the threat to medical freedom of choice. ‘We Become Silent: The Last Days of Health Freedom’ details the ongoing attempts by multinational pharmaceutical interests and giant food companies — in concert with the WTO, the WHO and others — to limit the public’s access to herbs, vitamins and other therapies. ‘We Become Silent’ is narrated by Dame Judi Dench, the noted UK actress who has won multiple Golden Globe awards, an Oscar, and a Tony for her on-stage work, in addition to dozens of other honors throughout her prestigious career.

The latest round in conventional medicine’s ongoing attempts to discredit (and ultimately outlaw) nutritional supplements is found in a highly questionable study published this week in the Journal of the American Medical Association, which claims that vitamins actually increase the risk of death.
The study claims to have analyzed a collection of previous studies on Vitamin A, beta carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and selenium, concluding that most of the nutrients are actually dangerous to human health. Of course, this is research from conventional medicine — an industry that promotes patented chemicals as perfectly safe, even though FDA-approved pharmaceuticals are killing 100,000 Americans each year. (Imagine the uproar if vitamins killed even a fraction of that number…)
To avoid getting hoodwinked by questionable research on “vitamins,” you have to strongly consider the financial interests of the source of this research. JAMA accepts millions of dollars in advertising from drug companies each year, and its pages are absolutely packed with drug ads. The American Medical Association, for its part, has long worked to discredit alternative medicine and has even been found guilty by U.S. federal courts of engaging in a conspiracy to destroy chiropractic medicine. The AMA, which is largely considered a joke by anyone familiar with natural health, is hardly a credible source for publishing scientific findings on nutrition. To protect the multi-billion dollar drug industry, the AMA would say practically anything, I believe.

Former Mexican president Zedillo calls for single-tariff trade system at IMF/WB summit

Countries around the world have been creating regional trading blocs in search of increasing the benefits of international commerce. But the outcome of some of those regional agreements has not been as mutually beneficial as expected and there are experts who are even questioning their existence.
“In my ideal world, all these regional agreements, sooner rather than later, should disappear,” said former Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo at a panel about the future of trade policy during the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank (WB) meetings in Washington D.C on Saturday. “In that system you don’t need NAFTA, you don’t need MERCOSUR, you don’t need all these great things that are proliferating all over the world.”
The NAFTA (North America Free Trade Agreement), which created a trilateral trade bloc in North America, was signed by Canada, Mexico, and the United States in 1994. The economic and political agreement among Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay known as MERCOSUR (Mercado Común del Sur) was launched in 1991.

September 23, 2011 - http://www.euronews.net/ The World Trade Organisation has said that global trade is slowing and it has cut its estimates for growth this year from 6.5 percent to 5.8 percent.
The head of the WTO, Pascal Lamy, warned against protectionist moves by governments saying: “This is not the time for go-it-alone measures. This is the time to strengthen and preserve the global trading system so that it keeps performing this vital function in the future.”
The forecast is much lower than last year when global trade grew by over 14 percent after a 12 percent slump in 2009.
