The Original is Often the Best

The original 1957 review of "Atlas Shrugged" is great for several reasons, but for me it's telling that Rand may possibly have assumed the conservative publishers of this review would be fellow travelers...

A reminder to Australian Liberal party types who seek to use Godwin's Law to shut down discussions about Australia's disgraceful asylum seeker programme. It's not a Godwin if it is not a trivial comparison. The Abbott government's policy does entail herding people into camps, placing them in danger and denying them freedom, due process and any chance of justice.

Great review from a 1950s conservative perspective. I agree with everything except for the anti-materialist critique.

It's interesting that the modern comments on the article are generally hostile. What passes for conservatism in this era has generally embraced Rand's message and tone. Old school conservatism of this sort is dead and buried.

As with the MPAA secret campaign against Google facilitated by WSJ journalism, here again we have another conspiracy involving key WSJ staff. These things happen so frequently that we need to ask ourselves whether the Wall Street Journal is really a newspaper or, as is typical of other Murdochian properties, a propaganda instrument whose main purpose is to misinform its readership and to sway public opinion for various right-wing causes.

The failure mode of capitalism is everyone with their knives out and pointed at one other.

Everywhere else in the world, money laundering works like this: you have an illegal source of money. You need to make it into legal money. You take your illegal money and disguise it as the profits of a legal enterprise.

In Russia, the need for off-the-books money is so intense that companies need to create false losses in order to create slush funds with which to pay illegal costs. ___The failure mode of capitalism is everyone with their knives out and pointed at one other.

Yanis Varoufakis, the former finance minister, told a group of investors in London that a five-man team under his control had been working for months on a contingency plan to create euro liquidity if the European Central Bank cut off emergency funding to the Greek financial system, as it in fact did after talks broke down and Syriza called a referendum.

The transcripts were leaked to the Greek newspaper Kathimerini. The telephone call took place a week after he stepped down as finance minister.

"The prime minister, before we won the election in January, had given me the green light to come up with a Plan B. And I assembled a very able team, a small team as it had to be because that had to be kept completely under wraps for obvious reasons," he said.

Mr Varoufakis recruited a technology specialist from Columbia University to help handle the logistics. Faced with a wall of obstacles, the expert broke into the software systems of the tax office - then under the control of the EU-IMF 'Troika' - in order to obtain the reserve accounts and file numbers of every taxpayer. "We decided to hack into my ministry’s own software programme," he said.

[...]

Mr Varoufakis claimed the cloak and dagger methods were necessary since the Troika had taken charge of the public revenue office within the finance ministry. "It’s like the Inland Revenue in the UK being controlled by Brussels. I am sure as you are hearing these words your hair is standing on end,” he said in the leaked transcripts.

Mr Varoufakis said any request for permission would have tipped off the Troika immediately that he was planning a counter-attack. He was ready to activate the mechanism the moment he received a "green light" from the prime minister, but the permission never came.

"I always told Tsipras that it will not be plain sailing but this is the price you have to pay for liberty," he told the Telegraph.

"But when the time came he realised that it was just too difficult. I don't know when he reached that decision. I only learned explicitly on the night of the referendum, and that is why I offered to resign," he said. Mr Varoufakis wanted to seize on the momentum of a landslide victory in the vote but was overruled.

[...]

"[German finance minister Wolfgang] Schauble believes that the eurozone is not sustainable as it is. He believes there has to be some fiscal transfers, some degree of political union. He believes that for that political union to work without federation, without the legitimacy that a properly elected federal parliament can render, can bestow upon an executive, it will have to be done in a very disciplinary way.

[...]

"And he said explicitly to me that a Grexit is going to equip him with sufficient terrorising power in order to impose upon the French that which Paris has been resisting: a degree of transfer of budget-making powers from Paris to Brussels."

Mr Varoufakis told the Telegraph that Mr Schauble had made up his mind that Greece must be ejected from the euro, and is merely biding his time, knowing that the latest bail-out plan is doomed to failure.

Energy Storage Is The Real Target Of Spain's New Tax On The Sun
"To add insult to injury, the proposed legislation also says that anyone who violates the self-consumption rules would be subject to fines of as much as $68 million. To put this in perspective, the $68 million fine is double the size of the maximum fine allowed for leaking radioactive nuclear waste, according to an analysis by PV Tech."
"For the past five years, the Spanish government has aggressively rolled back subsidies for renewable energy technologies. The impact has been especially adverse for the solar power industry."___We are entering a new and totally insane reality where the rent seekers can't even justify their monopolies any more.

On the consequences of making books freely available online

Earlier today I posted the final beta chapter of my book about neural networks at http://neuralnetworksanddeeplearning.com.

The book is online and freely available.   

One pleasing consequence of this availability is that many people get to see the book - the book will pass 400,000 readers later today or tomorrow, according to Google Analytics.   Of course, that number is not a true representation of impact, since many of those people no doubt glanced briefly at the book, and decided to move on to other things.

But there is a closely related number that gives me particular pleasure: according to Google Analytics the book has been downloaded in 208 countries.  That list includes places such as Djibouti, Comoros, Burkina Faso, and many others.

As in other countries, no doubt some of the readers in those countries only looked briefly at the book.  But I'm truly delighted that putting the book freely online gives people all over the world the opportunity to look at the book, and decide if it might be useful to them.

If I'd gone the conventional publishing route, my book would just now be entering production, and would have been seen by perhaps a few dozen people, probably in 2 or 3 countries.  Online availability really makes a big difference!___

John Hannaford, the former NSW attorney-general, went further. “In my 25 years in the party,” he said at the time, “I have never come across somebody so prepared to use numbers and use people as Bishop. There was always antipathy between the [progressive] Group and the Uglies – but … they [the Uglies] were people who were working for an interest or an ideal and you could respect them for that. There’s a big difference, however, between acting for self-interest and acting for the interests of an ideal.”

When James Hansen speaks, climate hawks listen and he has more bad news to deliver. According to a study conducted by Hansen and 16 coauthors, being published this week in the European Geophysical Union’s open-access journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, the effects of even moderate warming on sea-level rise are worse than previously believed. Hansen’s study suggests that even 2C is too unambitious, and that the point at which warming becomes exponential instead of linear is more like 1.5C. And so Hansen frames his findings as a plea to world leaders to pursue that new target.

Once again Standard & Poor's demonstrates that the Standard of their economic advice is very Poor. This is the same company that took bribes to rate junk assets as AAA, the collapse of which lead to the biggest financial meltdown since 1929.

As far as the deficit goes, in fact Australia should be borrowing more and investing in economy boosting activities. If it doesn't, its economy will continue to splutter along ineffectually as we wait for the world to recover from the doldrums.

The IMF has recently stated that Australia has plenty of latitude to increase its deficit with no ill-effects but media pundits and Abbott government prefer to take their advice from the Cowboys of Finance.

Leaving it in the ground

If there’s to be any chance of stabilizing the global climate, a large proportion of existing reserves of coal will need to be left in the ground. The Galilee Basin, estimated to contain 27 billion tonnes of coal, enough to raise atmospheric concentrations of CO2 by several parts per million on its own, is arguably the biggest test case in the world right now. Fortunately, the latest news is good.

The critical project is the Carmichael Mine proposed by Adani Coal. To get the coal out Adani proposed a new rail line and a port expansion at Abbot Point.

Leaving it in the ground

If there’s to be any chance of stabilizing the global climate, a large proportion of existing reserves of coal will need to be left in the ground. The Galilee Basin, estimated to contain 27 billion tonnes of coal, enough to raise atmospheric concentrations of CO2 by several parts per million on its own, is arguably the biggest test case in the world right now. Fortunately, the latest news is good.

The critical project is the Carmichael Mine proposed by Adani Coal. To get the coal out Adani proposed a new rail line and a port expansion at Abbot Point. Korean conglomerate POSCO (originally a steelmaker) was named as the builder of the railroad, with the prospect that POSCO would take an equity share and the Korean Export-Import Bank would lend money on favorable terms. If the rail line is built, other projects could go ahead. One such project, owned by Bandanna Coal (now in receivership) was just approved by Environment Minister Greg Hunt.

It now seems clear that Adani is mothballing the project. A month ago, the engineering design teams were told to stop work, and now Posco’s contractors have been sent home. Coincidentally or otherwise, Posco has announced the intention to return to its steelmaking roots, with aggressive cuts to its engineering and construction divisions.

Adani is still blaming regulatory delays, but this seems increasingly implausible. The sacking of the engineering teams will set the project back many months, if not years, and burning your primary equity partner doesn’t seem like a sensible response to regulatory problems. At this point, I’d say the strategy is to obtain and bank the regulatory approvals then hope that the price of coal increases in the future. This seems unlikely, given the collapse of demand in the US, declining demand in China and increasing Indian focus on renewables, in which Adani itself is a big player.

Moreover, with every year that passes, the obstacles to coal projects of any kind get bigger. Most international development banks will no longer lend to such projects, global banks are under similar pressure and institutional equity investors are being pushed to divest. It’s unlikely that the proponents of new coal projects in Australia will ever again see a government as favorable as the Abbott government, so if they can’t succeed now, they will probably never do so.___

Quote via +David Cameron Staples​

Labor today looks like a weak centre-right party which does not believe in itself. A party that believes in nothing except power will end up with nothing at all.

If Labor refuses to stand up for the principles it espouses, to articulate them and then argue for them, it forfeits its right to any political support.

"...it looks as though Labor does not actually believe in its own rhetoric. In fact, it looks as though Labor does not believe in anything much at all. If that is where today’s Labor Party stands, it will not long survive."___Quote via +David Cameron Staples​
