The world’s richest 1% are on course to control as much as two-thirds of the world’s wealth by 2030, according to a shocking analysis that has lead to a cross-party call for action.
World leaders are being warned that the continued accumulation of wealth at the top will fuel growing distrust and anger over the coming decade unless action is taken to restore the balance.
An alarming projection produced by the House of Commons library suggests that if trends seen since the 2008 financial crash were to continue, then the top 1% will hold 64% of the world’s wealth by 2030. Even taking the financial crash into account, and measuring their assets over a longer period, they would still hold more than half of all wealth.
Since 2008, the wealth of the richest 1% has been growing at an average of 6% a year – much faster than the…

Discovery is more complex than lay people realize. There is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes in court. Our paralegal, Connie Lasco, saw the problems and forwarded the request for service to me for comment.
Here is an example of my comments to one homeowner who is defending her home pro se. She is asking us to do a motion to compel — based upon her filing of a request for production.
We do provide those services. But there were certain prerequisites that were unknown to her. My response should assist lawyers and pro se litigants in considering the discovery demands and the the usual “answers” from the banks and servicers.
Let us help you plan your discovery requests and defense narrative:

RATIFICATION OF VOID ASSIGNMENTS IS IMPOSSIBLE AND ABSURD
In the wake of the California Supreme Court’s decision in Yvanova and its progeny, the legal community has accepted the unacceptable (and the ridiculous). The bottom line of the decision is that a void assignment can be the basis for a lawsuit for wrongful foreclosure but it cannot be the basis of a defense to the foreclosure itself. Thus you can sue for the illegal and fraudulent use of a fabricated instrument reciting a transfer of ownership of a note and/or mortgage, but you can’t stop the illegal foreclosure which is based on the same fraudulent instruments.
In order to reach this conclusion the court was required to twist legal reasoning beyond common sense logic. The court held that a void assignment could be ratified; and since it could be ratified, the assignment was not void but voidable. Somehow the court also…

In 2016, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff was impeached in a legal coup d’état. On March 14, 2018, City Council member Marielle Franco was murdered in downtown Rio de Janeiro, likely by the police or their colleagues in the paramilitary cartels. Yesterday, a judge ordered the imprisonment of Lula da Silva, the most popular candidate in the upcoming presidential election. Rather than understanding these as interruptions of Brazilian democracy, we have to recognize them as the functioning of a system in which the forces that purport to provide security are themselves the greatest source of danger.
The Execution of Marielle Franco
On March 14, City Council member Marielle Franco and driver Anderson Gomes were shot and killed in downtown Rio de Janeiro as they were leaving a gathering of black women from a variety of social…

Below is the general introduction by Éric Toussaint, spokesperson for the CADTM international network.
What we are fighting is a capitalist system that destroys nature.
We have to fight a capitalist system which, within the two centuries since the so-called Industrial Revolution, has accumulated enough greenhouse gases to trigger climate change.
It sees nature merely as resources to be extracted, exploited and traded for maximal profit.
A capitalist system that confines the inhabitants of many countries to producing raw material to be exported at the lowest possible price.
A system that drives people to produce food they will not eat and to eat food they have…
