    Most of the economy of the west actually do not exist, its just an illusion.. The problem is that we do not want to change that, but try our best to keep that illusion going, by the pain and poverty of our future generations.
    You know for someone whose independent you sure look at things with a very narrow view.

    The Russian economy is worse off, because if W. Europe doesn't have money to buy gas and oil, then the Russians will fall. Its just the truth, and something more disgusting is that Moscow is a very expensive city and for what? The Russian's want easy money like every trader in Wall Street. Did it work out for them?

    Besides something you need to understand is that economies work cycle and one of the view that can say it isn't being hurt by the global recession is not Russia but India. India will be a very powerful country.

    The truth is what the facts state. And from my perspective the economy has not gotten better. It starts getting better when mass people stop loosing their jobs.

    All that means is it stopped getting worse. Has nothing to do with improvement. Improvement is an upward motion, not stagnation from one direction or another.

    This depends on ones perceptions...Right off the bat, I'd say "NO-ONE".
    Why is this ?
    Its the nature of the beast.

    This lady is saying the truth, which is never shown on western TV channels. We live in a media bubble, where a broken economy is claimed to be in "recovery" because it stopped collapsing because of state injections into the economy, debt that will be paid by the future generations.

    She doesn't say all aspects like the west being in huge decline, and our future being gambled away in desperate attempts to try to keep an unsustainable economic model going. The western media is not only saying we are in recovery, but brainwashing us to believe it so that we start spending again, and keep the broken model afloat. On the back of the labor of our future generations that is.

    Even so the total situation is far more complicated and utterly dark when you look at western society. But then again, we cannot see that because we are kept in the economic bubble, the media bubble and the government bubble, because of the interest of a tyrant class who exploit all our labour, a bunch of satans who enjoy the suffering in Africa on the back of the luxury life they create from it.

    Anyways.. The question is simple.. Who is telling the truth about the economy? This video or the current western media? This is a very poor way of arguing. An individual may or may not lie; but people do lie - so these two things cannot be used.


    PS. Russia today is an excellent place to see the truth as oppose to western media brainwashing. When I see this term, then I know there are fools afoot. and there can be no debate....sadly. A different perspective is ALWAYS healthy.
    Different perspectives are generally healthy, if one can recognize them...as I say, one must know the nature of man..
    Maximus, what is your solution for the poor state of Africa ?

    Re: The truth

    Im not a big fan of terms like "western".For example terms like "western medicine" actually means medicine that works.

    Re: The truth

    I don't really think that there is some sort of conspiracy in the media, but rather that the economics departments of most media outlets are full of Keynesians or Post-Keynesians. Thus, they believe that as long as Reserve Banks and governments prime the pump, everything will be peachy.

    You may or may not agree with the economic outlook of Peter Schiff, but his constant arguments with economic gurus, from CNN to FOX, demonstrates this kind of blinkered thinking that has hoodwinked the media, commerce, and higher education.
