Race To The Bottom. Indeed.

There's only one way out of a Ponzi scheme, and it's not the "easy" way...

"Let us not be naive, globalization is going through a major crisis"

French President Emmanuel Macron called at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos on Wednesday for a “global compact” to harness the negative effects of globalization, warning against a race to the bottom on taxes and regulation.

Let us not be naive, you can't "reform" a zero sum globalized Ponzi scheme. Davos billunaires pretend to be 'worried' about wealth inequality even as they celebrate their most recent tax cut. What they're worried about is rioting. And what they want IS a race to the bottom on taxes and regulation, to fund further "growth". Ponzi schemes don't go in reverse.
