Izgleda da su SAD sredili Khana, bar tako on kaze. Veceras formalno glasanje o nepoverenju.

Članak naslovljen “Boomer mathematics: why older generations can’t understand the millenial struggle to buy a house” (Boomerska matematika: zašto starije generacije ne mogu razumjeti borbu milenijalaca pri kupnji kuće) kreće, naravno, od avokada. Donedavno je konzumacija avokada bila simbol rastrošnosti milenijalaca koja ih onemogućava u rješavanju stambenog pitanje. Avokado je u međuvremenu iščeznuo iz medija i završio u memovima, ali ta je optužba za luksuz, navodi Manavis, itekako prisutna. Uvriježilo se mišljenje da mladi previše troše na luksuz, pogotovo u sferi zabave, i da zbog toga nisu u stanju “pozabaviti” se ključnim problemom. Nedostaje im financijske pismenosti, kako glasi didaktički eufemizam za nedostatak financija. No, problem je u tome što starije generacije nerijetko dostupnu široku paletu zabavnih sadržaja – od streaming servisa do putovanja – smatraju luksuzom. Ti su sadržaji danas prilično dostupni i ono što ometa prethodnu generaciju da samo usporedi brojke jest slabija dostupnost takvih sadržaja u njihovo vrijeme.

 

Ali kako upozorava Manavis, nije to jedini faktor smetnje u boomerskoj matematici. Ona iz jednažbe isključuje političko-ekonomski kontekst u kojem su oni rješavali stambeno pitanje. Stanovanje u tom periodu nije bilo isključivo tržišna kategorija, a i kad je bilo, omjer cijena kvadrata u odnosu na ostale robe bio je značajno niži. Nije problem u tome što mladi troše na “luksuz” već u tome što je stanovanje postalo luskuz. Postoji još jedan faktor smetnje u toj matematici, a možemo ga uvjetno karakterizirati kao moralno-psihološku satisfakciju. Radi se o još jednoj rundi generacijske dijagnostike koja se zasniva na navodno kontinuiranoj dekadenciji mlađih generacija. Starije generacije su si mogle priuštiti rješavanje stambenog pitanja jer su naprosto donosile pametnije odluke. I bile spremne na sitne žrtve kako bi si omogućile krov nad glavom. Milenijalci, eto, nisu toliko pametni, a ni moralno usidreni.

 

Međutim, ova priča o generacijskom raskoraku ne staje samo na stanovanju, već nam dovoljno govori i o kapitalizmu u proteklih 40 godina, objašnjenjima tog kapitalizma i njihovim političkim posljedicama. Britanski ekonomist James Meadway afirmativno je podijelio na Twitteru članak Sarah Manavis i dodatno upozorio na središnju ekonomsku lekciju impliciranu u članku. Meadway podsjeća da je posljednjih 40 godina kapitalizma obilježeno padom cijena. I to ne samo zabavnog sadržaja, kojim se bavi Manavis, već i hrane i pogotovo eletkroničke robe. Što se tiče potonje, svjedočimo i ogromnom napretku u kvaliteti. Iza tog pada cijena stoje, između ostalog, rast produktivnosti i prije svega uključivanje stotina milijuna ljudi na kapitalističko tržište rada raspadom sovjetskog bloka i integracijom kineske privrede. Ništa slično nismo zabilježili na tržištu nekretnina. Naprotiv, smjer je suprotan.

A provocative and shocking look at how western society is misunderstanding and mistreating mental illness. Perfect for fans of Empire of Pain and Dope Sick.

In Britain alone, more than 20% of the adult population take a psychiatric drug in any one year. This is an increase of over 500% since 1980 and the numbers continue to grow. Yet, despite this prescription epidemic, levels of mental illness of all types have actually increased in number and severity.

Using a wealth of studies, interviews with experts, and detailed analysis, Dr James Davies argues that this is because we have fundamentally mischaracterised the problem. Rather than viewing most mental distress as an understandable reaction to wider societal problems, we have embraced a medical model which situates the problem solely within the sufferer and their brain.

Urgent and persuasive, 
Sedated systematically examines why this individualistic view of mental illness has been promoted by successive governments and big business - and why it is so misplaced and dangerous.

Sedated is a polemic of great clarity that will make you feel at once angry and reassured. New Statesman

A wonderful, moving and truly life-changing book. Sedated is an urgent intervention for post-pandemic society, written with expertise and clarity. Warning: it will cause irritation to powerful interests who fear us all becoming better informed about the root causes of so much human suffering. Baroness Shami Chakrabarti, former Director of Liberty

James Davies is one of the most important voices on mental health in the world. This is a beautiful and deeply sane book. Everyone who's suffering - and wants to know how to make it stop - should read it right away. Johann Hari, author of Lost Connections

An intelligent and powerfully argued book... a rich seam of empathy runs through Davies's narrative. ― The Herald

Essential and Enlightening... Davies shows how we can re-connect our personal troubles to our political contexts, and in doing so, find better ways forward ― Lucy Johnstone, consultant clinical psychologist

In this game-changing polemic, James Davies leaves us in no doubt: to tackle the mental health crisis we need major social and economic reform. ― Nathan Filer, author of This Book will Change Your Mind about Mental Health

A marvellous book. Critics of traditional psychiatry will relish its clear-sighted exposure of a failing system. Defenders of traditional psychiatry may well be infuriated. But everyone should read it. ― Peter Kinderman, professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Liverpool --This text refers to the paperback edition.

The Poverty of Communism  book cover

 

The Poverty of Communism is a pathbreaking investigation. In a series of separate studies, Eberstadt analyzes the performance of Communist governments in the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, China, and Cuba. This is the first scholarly effort to assess the record of Communist governments with respect to poverty in a detailed and comprehensive fashion. Well written, carefully argued, and reflecting a sweeping range of knowledge, The Poverty of Communism will be of interest to specialists in the countries investigated as well as those concerned with comparative economic and political development. Above all, it gives testimony to the plight of voiceless populations about which all too little has been written from an objective standpoint.

@Luther Sasvim slučajno si pretpostavljam na topik Svet postavio knjigu iz 1988, a ne da bi kao po običaju kontrirao prethodnom postu? Neverovatan si lik, zaista.
