After the robbery comes economic cleansing

Economic cleansing. Five years after the crash, this is what many of us are now being subjected to.

This is probably the most direct and clear-cut illustration of Britain’s kleptocratic economic regime, as explained in Max Keiser’s characteristic polemic style. However, regardless of the style of presentation, these are the facts of the matter.

The last five were were not so much a recession as a robbery … and the robbery is being continued today as an act of economic (as opposed to ethnic) cleansing.

At the same time, chancellor George Osborne is looking to buy votes for the Conservatives at the next election, presumably so he can continue his attack on the victims of the 2008 crash with his £12bn cut in welfare benefits from 2015 onwards.

This edition of the Keiser Report is well worth watching from beginning to end.



Peter a journalist with 30 years experience of freelance writing, UK national newspaper and magazine production roles, and business development. In 2007, he developed and launched a mainstream-style green consumer magazine in the UK, called GreenerLiving, as a means of promoting sustainable change ‘within the system’. GreenerLiving closed during the post-crash recession, but Peter went on to become managing editor of the international ethical business title, Ethical Performance. However, Peter felt that the CSR sector has not succeeded in changing corporate priorities anywhere near fast enough, and so I decided to leave the treadmill of corporate employment and debt accumulation to focus on my own projects. Now poorer but a billion million times happier, he writes on political, economic and social issues – usually seriously, but sometimes as satire. He's currently writing Psychopath Economics, a book about the logic of social and economic power, belief systems, and the rise and fall of societies. Peter is convinced that ordinary people must educate themselves and exercise their economic leverage if we are to avoid social and environmental destruction.
