Nothing can save derivatives debt bubble—cancel it!
The small but sudden burst of attention to Glass-Steagall banking laws, including in the Australian media this week, is a sign of just how dire the global financial blowout is becoming. There is simply no longer any way to juggle, unravel or prop up the caving monstrosity of fictitious value in the trans-Atlantic system, built atop an economy which has long since been stripped and looted of its productive substance. The only solution is to cancel the derivatives debt bubble, ban gambling by deposit-taking banks and initiate the reconstruction of our physical economy.

Bring back DDT to eradicate Zika virus
As the World Health Organisation (WHO) on 1 February has declared the Zika virus a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern”, following a dramatic increase in cases of microcephaly (underdeveloped brains in babies) linked to the virus—4,000 since October 2015 in Brazil alone—it is time for Australia to resume production of DDT to eradicate any mosquitos potentially carrying the virus. The Aedes aegypti mosquito, the main transmitter of the Zika virus globally, is found in far north Queensland; this mosquito is also responsible for the spread of dengue fever worldwide.
Dr Cameron Webb, a mosquito-borne virus expert at the University of Sydney, says Aedes aegypti would play the most important role in the transmission of Zika if it arrived in Australia. On 26 January he wrote: “If we can get outbreaks of dengue, there is no reason we cannot, or won’t, get an outbreak of Zika in the future”, adding that “there is great potential that Aedes albopictus, better known as the Asian Tiger Mosquito, could become established in southern cities. As well as a vector of Zika virus, it can spread dengue and chikungunya viruses and be a significant nuisance-biting pest. Keeping this mosquito out of our cities is critical.”
