Finance 2.0 - NewsGrabs Sunday, 5 April 2009

The Finance 2.0 Manifesto - Dear G20...
Umair Haque addresses the assembled leaders of the G20 -
Finance 1.0 cannot power growth 2.0. Yesterday's finance cannot power tomorrow's prosperity. Bailouts, taxes, nationalization, regulation are what your discussions this week are focused on. These can limit the depth and intensity of the crash. But what they cannot do is build a radically more efficient, productive, and effective financial system.

That requires a better kind of finance altogether — one designed not merely to make the worst among us richer, but to make us all authentically, meaningfully wealthier. That's why finance 2.0 is the future.

Some may ask whether we need Umair Haque's advice on re-thinking the finance system. Perhaps the banking sector will somehow just right itself.

If you have any doubt that drastic action is indeed needed, I recommend you read "The quiet Coup" where Simon Johnson, who was chief economist with the IMF not long back, looks at the banking crisis with a rather penetrating eye.

EU Court: No freedom of speech on medicines
Reporting to Nutraingredients today, Susie Ekstrand, of the Danish law firm, Lett, acting as counsel for Damgaard said: “This ruling is significant because it means anything written about a product that maybe deemed medicinal in one member state, can be deemed inappropriate and consequences may follow for the author.”

Canada Bans Lawn Chemicals - Multinationals Sue
The Canadian Cancer Society praised Alberta’s action as an “appropriate first step to limit the risk to human health and the environment.” Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and more than 100 Canadian cities have now enacted lawn and landscape chemical bans but the pesticide makers are fighting back. Last October, Dow AgroSciences filed a notice of intent to seek compensation from the Canadian government over Quebec’s provincial ban. Under provisions of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Dow (which makes the weed-killer 2,4-D), claimed the Quebec ban “breaches legal protections owed by Canada to U.S. investors.” Chemtura filed a similar NAFTA-based claim over Canada’s ban on lindane for seed treatment.

The Australian: Vioxx maker Merck drew up doctor hit list
Staff at US company Merck &Co emailed each other about the list of doctors - mainly researchers and academics - who had been negative about the drug Vioxx or Merck and a recommended course of action.

The email, which came out in the Federal Court in Melbourne yesterday as part of a class action against the drug company, included the words "neutralise", "neutralised" or "discredit" against some of the doctors' names.

It is also alleged the company used intimidation tactics against critical researchers, including dropping hints it would stop funding to institutions and claims it interfered with academic appointments.

"We may need to seek them out and destroy them where they live," a Merck employee wrote, according to an email excerpt read to the court by Julian Burnside QC, acting for the plaintiff.

New Zealand: Group calls for greater controls on kids' medicines
Aspartame was in at least 81 children's medicines available in New Zealand , she said.

"We want to encourage manufacturers to remove questionable and potentially harmful ingredients from their products and give the consumer more information and choice, while we wait for our regulatory authorities to do something about the appallingly neglected area of children's medicine."

Texas Bill to Curb Psychiatric Prescriptions to Children
Rep. Sylvester Turner's bill would prohibit doctors from prescribing anti-psychotic drugs to children younger than 11 who are covered by Medicaid unless they get special permission from the state.

Thousands of Texas children under 2 years old have been prescribed anti-psychotics like Seroquel and Risperdal, Turner said – drugs that treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, but can produce harmful side effects in children. His measure would force state health officials to review individual prescriptions, considering a child's diagnosis and whether a drug has federal approval for use in juveniles before approving the prescription.

Alaska Admits It Is Incapable of Protecting Children and Youth in Its Care from Harmful Psychiatric Drugging
Practically every day brings revelations that pediatric psychopharmacology is the result of illegal drug company actions to improperly influence psychiatrists to prescribe extremely harmful drugs to children and youth, in spite of there being no real evidence of their efficacy. "Rather than meeting its mandate to properly care for and protect these children and youth from harm, the actions of the State are reprehensible," Mr. Gottstein declared, adding "The State is also trying to hide its complicity by stopping the discovery process."

Creators Of Psychiatric Treatment Guidelines Deeply Tied To Pharma
An article in the Boston Globe details a new study in Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics wherein researchers went through the American Psychiatric Association's treatment guidelines for depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia and found that 18 of the 20 authors had ties to pharmaceutical companies. Medications for the three diagnoses are a $25 billion a year market for Big Pharma.

FDA Publicly Worries About Seroquel's Risks
"There remains a concern about longer-term risks with this drug, in particular risks related to metabolic changes," said FDA drug reviewer Thomas Laughren, in documents posted online. Laughren also pointed to a recent New England Journal of Medicine article that suggests antipsychotic drugs like Seroquel can increase the risk of sudden cardiac death.

AIDS: House of Numbers
A 2009 Documentary by Brent Leung takes on the most controversial human rights and human health issue of the last fifty years. Asking the un-askable, questioning the un-questionable, Mr. Leung uncovers the mass of information about HIV testing and the AIDS diagnosis that is daily suppressed by government and media, and hidden from public view.

Guinea Pig Kids: The Village Voice Buries the Bodies
The VERA Institute, essentially given a mandate to cover up the story, was paid three million dollars to admit that many children died, and to loudly assure the public that no drug could possibly be to blame. They excuse high dose Black Box drugs used on infants and children, up to 7 and 8 drugs at a time, each of which is capable of killing an adult.

They do this while simultaneously admitting that they were FORBIDDEN from looking at a SINGLE medical record for ANY of the children. The VERA researcher then tells the Voice reporter, Elizabeth Dwoskin, that they really can’t be sure of their assertion, or any assertion, because they had no access to medical records.

How Susceptible Are Genes to Mobile Phone Radiation?
In their articles, the experts in biomedicine and biosciences Prof. Franz Adlkofer, Prof. Igor Y. Belyaev, and Vladislav M. Shiroff show the broad range of international research efforts that document DNA and chromosome damages as well as chronic diseases resulting from electromagnetic radiation exposures. This is about non-thermal effects well below current exposure limits. UMTS radiation turns out to be especially hazardous.

Australia: Scientists speak out on mobile phone, cancer link
Epidemiologist Professor Bruce Armstrong has broken ranks on the world's largest research study, and top neurosurgeon Dr Vini Khurana has this week published his research review. Both find an increased risk of brain tumours on the side of the head the mobile is used after 10 years of calls, reflecting growing concerns around the world.

Wheel Motors to Drive Dutch Buses
Thanks largely to its in-wheel motors, the bus can travel twice as far as a conventional bus on a liter of diesel, says Arend Heinen, who is both an engineer and spokesperson for the company. That translates into a reduction in fuel consumption of 50 percent. The company has been awarded contracts to retrofit seven commercial buses with its technology, with the first to be completed next month.
