$46 Trillion versus $47 Trillion

The $46 Trillion news came out in early August: Meet the Global Financial Elites Controlling $46 Trillion In Wealth.

So our corporate leaders in the World Economic Forum (WEF) matched and raised the pot to $47 Trillion in September, with a report claiming:

Chronic disease to cost $47 trillion

The global economic impact of the five leading chronic diseases -- cancer, diabetes, mental illness, heart disease, and respiratory disease -- could reach $47 trillion over the next 20 years, according to a study by the World Economic Forum (WEF). ….

"This is not a health issue, this is an economic issue ….." ……

….Mental health, which is typically left off lists of leading NCDs, will account for $16 trillion -- a third of the overall $47 trillion anticipated costs.

The chronic diseases behind the NCD Pandemic used to be called "diseases of civilization" - because they are caused by industrial activities and contamination. Now, they've spread around the world through global trade and corporate colonization. The big 4 are cancer, heart disease, diabetes and respiratory disease. But the WEF adds "mental health" - $16 Trillion is tagged as losses due to "mental health" and includes Alzheimer's Disease and other dementias.

$16 Trillion versus $16 Trillion

The WEF says losses due to mental health will be $16 Trillion. Compare that to July's audit on the Fed's Secret Bailouts showing that the U.S. Federal Reserve gave out $16.1 trillion in "emergency loans" aka secret bailouts to U.S. and foreign financial institutions between Dec. 1, 2007 and July 21, 2010.

Fed gave $16 trillion in emergency loans

The U.S. Federal Reserve gave out $16.1 trillion in emergency loans to U.S. and foreign financial institutions between Dec. 1, 2007 and July 21, 2010, according to figures produced by the government's first-ever audit of the central bank.

Last year, the gross domestic product of the entire U.S. economy was $14.5 trillion.

Of the $16.1 trillion loaned out, $3.08 trillion went to financial institutions in the U.K., Germany, Switzerland, France and Belgium, the Government Accountability Office's (GAO) analysis shows.

So according to the WEF, the ongoing global economic crisis is caused by the chronic disease NCD Pandemic. They say it's sick people who are bankrupting nations, not corporate greed. And even though the evidence shows corporate industry creates the disease agents causing chronic disease, they blame the victims, insisting "people make themselves sick." And they want everyone to cut their budgets, maybe do a bit of culling.

The NCD Pandemic is very real by the way.

Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) are the leading causes of death globally, killing more people each year than all other causes combined. ….

Of the 57 million deaths that occurred globally in 2008, 36 million – almost two thirds – were due to NCDs, comprising mainly cardiovascular diseases, cancers, diabetes and chronic lung diseases. ....About one fourth of global NCD-related deaths take place before the age of 60.

NCDs have become a universal threat. They kill three in five people a year 2011 ...Roughly a third will be younger than 60. Even larger numbers of people are living disabled by these illnesses.

But interesting how the figures match up so nicely, dontcha think? "Global Financial Elites Controlling $46 Trillion In Wealth" versus "Chronic disease to cost $47 trillion" - "$16 Trillion in Secret Bailouts from the Fed" versus "$16 Trillion in mental health costs."

And very interesting that euthanasia is a hot topic again.

Whether we like it or not, our corporate leaders are forcing us to choose:

Bailout the corporate economy, or build a new one that respects people;

Kill the people to save the corporations, or

Kill the corporations to save the people.
