While forecasters are painting the worst of job losses for the #UK in the event of a "No Deal" #Brexit, it is worth noting the #EU also stands to lose some half million jobs from Brexit, with nearly 300,000 jobs vanishing in Germany alone (and Germany is already in recession--massive job loss on top of that will not be kind to the economy at all, and could push the country into depression). https://www.statista.com/chart/18962/total-job-losses-forecast-in-eu-member-states-in-the-case-of-a-hard-brexit/ #analysis #economy

While the nation's #economy appears in rude health for today, by far the most worrisome trend is the decline of of new business formation. New businesses are small businesses, those "mom and pop" firms that are what may colloquially be called "Main Street", as opposed to the corporatist, financialist, globalist economy of Wall Street. Main Street accounts for 85% of all hiring in the US, and, historically, has been by far the largest part of the nation's economy. New #business formation collapsed during the Great Recession, and while it has recovered somewhat in recent years it is still far below the pre-recession levels of a decade ago. The nation's long term prosperity has always come from Main Street rather than Wall Street. If Main Street withers, so will the country. We need small businesses, far more than we need Big Business. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-09-08/national-emergency-us-business-formation-goes-negative #news #jobs

The problem with the Oleg Smolenkov "exfiltration" stories is that underneath the dramatic headlines is a much more pedestrian, cynical, and dangerous reality of intelligence agencies feeding spun narratives as "bombshell" leaks designed not to inform the public but to make the narrative appear credible. What to make of these intelligence community leaks? That the spymasters are playing us all for fools. https://taibbi.substack.com/p/latest-russian-spy-story-looks-like #news #propaganda #Russia #CIA #FBI

The #EU auto industry is doing its best to promote electric vehicles, including ever more stringent emissions standards. Car buyers have not been impressed. With Europe already in recession, a slump in car sales is NOT what the #economy needs. https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/european-carmakers-face-perfect-storm #news
