Abundance is Coming | Russian Scientists Announce Historic Discovery Rendering the Entire System Obsolete


(Stillness in the Storm Editor) Our world is plagued by scarcity and the trappings of dependency on systems that provide material resources. The powers that should not be have reduced humanity to dependents on the state and use corporations to provide all our Earthly needs. But with the advent of advanced technology and clean energies, resource independence is not only possible but an inevitability.

According to the following article, Russian scientists have discovered a method of transmutation that allows any element or substance to be transformed into another. In times of old, this was called Alchemy, yet in modern times, due to popularize science fiction like Star Trek, we call this replication or 3D printing.

3D printers are an emerging technology that empowers cottage industry innovators to liberate themselves, and their patrons, from dependency on parasitic corporations. The potential of personal manufacturing to change our materially based world is amazing. Consider that the vast majority of humanity slaves away in underpaying jobs, because in order to procure items needed for modern life, we need to earn-a-living. But if goods can be produced locally, the cost of production would drop considerably, and if materials can also be produced via the transmutation process cited by the Russian scientists, then this provides a cheap and almost limitless supply for the masses.

To be sure our world has been on the edge of this shift for decades while nefarious powers, acting from behind the scenes, do everything they can to hold back the rising tide of innovation. But in this age of information, when the secrets of antiquity are accessible via a few keystrokes on a computer, the times of material dependence and financial enslavement are coming to an end.

One day future generations will look back at these times and wonder how over 7,000,000,000 people allowed themselves to be so disempowered by relying on a handful of elite companies to provide for everyone’s material needs.

In another challenge to the Khazarian Mafia’s Babylonian paper magick financial system and the entire pyramid of cartels, two Russian scientists revealed a groundbreaking scientific discovery that is expected to change every system built for the last millennia.

Chemical transmutation, specifically involving lead into gold, was first heard within the occult science known as alchemy. Then, it was that same occultism that continue to suppress using the “national security” all encompassing excuse against free energy activist John Bedini, who successfully transmuted copper into gold by using 5000 Celsius of heat, further explaining why countries above the Ring of Fire, like the Philippines, have so much natural gold deposit that’s been extracted by foreign mining firms decades ago.

To put it simply, there is more than one way to produce gold, naturally and artificially. And this very valuable element has more than one application, too, not just in the realm of electronics industry, but also within our physical well-being, and has been made part in man’s pursuit for longevity for thousands of years.

So, why is the knowledge pertaining to all of the above are not available up to now?

In a word, capitalism.

The profit oriented capitalism, in conjunction with the monetary based economic system, has aborted humanity’s march towards space age progress. It has deterred us from achieving our full potential.

All technologies that have been discovered, and are deliberately suppressed by patent acquisition and shelving, can make the existing control paradigm obsolete overnight. Those who are addicted to these control systems need to be neutralized if we are to make it to the next level of our evolution that’s been delayed for more than 100 years.

Related Science Conspiracy: Suppressed Free Energy Science

This is exactly what the BRICS countries are trying to do.

For the last several years since its inception, the BRICS tried several methods and strategies to start this paradigm shifting change that is not only expected to affect their own population, but that of the entire planet.

In order to weaken the clout of the Rothschild banking dynasty that is protecting the status quo, both Russia and China started buying vast quantities of gold available in the open market. This didn’t cause a significant increase on the price of gold and silver right away because those prices were already under intense systematic rigging in the first place, in order to protect the “integrity” of the legal tender, global exchange currency, i.e. Federal Reserve’s US dollar.

However, the stable and low gold prices only fed the desire of Russia and China to buy even more gold bullion using their huge reserve US dollars, a gradual yet deliberate dollar dumping, further undermining the already weakened Western economies. This resulted to the massive resignations of banking CEOs in the early part of 2012. These massive banking resignations were punctuated in June of the same year by World Bank President Zoellick and a year later by Pope Benedict XVI, the Vatican being at the apex of Corporatocracy and the entire fiat banking system on the planet.

Since then, the BRICS established direct exchanges using sovereign asset-based currencies to sustain their own economies while requiring others, especially the West, to do the same in exchange for their oil and industrial products.

Now, the financing world is separated between the East’s asset denominated and the West fiat based economies.

As the Brexit referendum was looming, Rothschild’s henchman George Soros invested heavily on Asian gold mines and made at least $2 trillion revenue overnight. This gives the Rothschild banking dynasty more fuel to sustain their sinister plans for the West, i.e. technocratic dictatorship.

So, how would humanity defeat a cunning enemy which is agile enough to play from one financial market into another, in a wink?

Since waging war is not a feasible option considering the possibility of a nuclear MAD, or mutually assured destruction, the only option left would then be the total destruction of the financial system itself.

But how exactly should the BRICS do it?

Barely a few weeks ago, a conference was held in Geneva, Switzerland, purposely to announce the discovery of a method to transmute any element into another element in the periodic table, and beyond.

This discovery was made possible by two Russian theoretical and experimental scientists who were trying to figure out how to fuel a spacecraft using any element found in space. Now, that’s a good scientific excuse, indeed.

The transmutation process does not involve nuclear reaction and heavy water. The economic consequence of the industrial scale of such a process cannot be projected at this point, they say.

Vladislav Karabanov: “Today, here in Geneva, we are making public a discovery and a technology which without any exaggeration could be of historic significance.

The essence of this discovery and the technology boils down to the development of an industrial method for the transformation of chemical elements into other elements and their isotopes.

What we’ll have to show you today is the transmutation without nuclear reactors, without heavy water, or anything of the kind, to obtain a transmutation of elements. Our approach to transmutation of chemical elements is biochemical in nature.

It is still too early to fully grasp the economic and civilization significance of this technology. It would not be an exaggeration to say that this discovery is a veritable revolution that’s going to open a new chapter in our technological progress. Unlikely as it may sound, this is a fact.

The architects of this discovery and technology are leading Russian Chemists, Mrs. Tamara Sahno and Mr. Victor Kurashov. These are theoretical and experimental scientists who stand on the shoulders of a dynasty of researchers who have been instrumental in discovering these methods for the transformation of chemical methods.

Mankind, represented by the authors, has discovered this method for the transmutation of matter which is likely to change the face of today’s world, perhaps as deeply as it was changed by the use of electricity, perhaps even deeper.

The repercussions of this revolution will be felt in the energy sector, medicine, industry and perhaps would also open up new industries, brand new industries that will have enormous humanitarian implications.

What is most important to bear in mind is that what we are talking about here is a ready-made industrial approach that will be capable of producing target products in industrial quantities in a matter of months. With respect to the economic aspects of this discovery I am going to brief you about that later . . .”

Victor Kurashov: “Ladies and gentlemen, our work to develop the technology for the transmutation of chemical elements goes back to the early 90s. The very first results were obtained back in 1998, but the bulk of this effort and research, as well as hundreds of successful experiments fall on the Summer and Autumn of 2013.

Our further efforts involved patenting this work, and so for all these reasons we haven’t rushed to publish our findings until the patent was issued. We received the patent priority on the 15th of May 2014, whereas the patent itself was issued on the 25th of August 2015.

Let’s move onto the process itself very briefly. The first component used in the process is ore, or nuclear waste. The second component of the process are valuable valency metals such as vanadium, chromium, manganese, iron, cobalt, nickel, copper, zinc, and others. Either of these will do, but we tend to use iron as the least costly element. The third component and a factor in this process, these are bacteria. Usually we use iron and sulphur-reducing bacterial species which we select along a certain list of criteria, such as that the bacteria are active, that they are resistant to radiation, that they are adapted to a heavily salted solution — ore, suspended in water.

Now about the technology itself: ore, or nuclear waste (there’s no difference) is processed by bacteria in the presence of valuable valency elements in any closed vessel. The transmutation process kicks off immediately, and proceed stage by stage for two or three weeks until target elements are obtained. But if it is not stopped on time, this process would carry on until stable isotopes are obtained as the end product.”

Producing the right element is one thing, using it is another. In conjunction with this discovery, Russia also released the availability of its first 3D metal printer…

The Mindblowing Consequence of this Discovery

There’s no doubt that there will be a creative explosion all over the planet when all of these technology and equipments are made available on the market soon.

When there’s an oversupply of any element, naturally the price of that element will go down to the point of insignificance, the anathema to the scarcity based economic system that we are forced to swallow.

Beside its scientifically groundbreaking significance, the conference was also held in the headquarters of the global banking industry and political epicenter of the West, which should repel all notion of it being just a mere Russian propaganda, or

… that turning iron or lead into gold is not fringe science at all but real and replicable, and the technology to do it is officially available to the world.

In the final analysis, the full utilization of all scientific discoveries could make all conventional institutions, e.g. educational, banking and finance, religion, and even the police and military, obsolete.

The future is within our grasp. We just need to support the right side of the geopolitical spectrum to make it happen.

Aside from the fiat monetary scam and bloodsoaked petrodollar, another significant source of funds for the Nazionist Khazarian Mafia is the “healthcare” industry which registered a whopping $3.09 trillion in 2014, and is projected to soar to $3.57 trillion in 2017, in the US alone. We believe that this is just a conservative figure.

We can avoid using drugs, defeat any viral attack and scaremongering, like the Zika virus, easily by knowing how to build our own comprehensive antiviral system. Find more about how we can kill three birds with one stone, right here.

RED ALERT WARNING: THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE — Bill Holter ~ SGTreport.com


Note: My feeling about all the “economic collapse” warnings, is that there’s an X-Factor that most analysts aren’t aware of in relation to negotiations with ET races who are here assisting humanity thru the coming shift. IMO there’s a Divine plan unfolding to recover humanity’s stolen assets and restructure the global economy to a system of abundance vs scarcity. How it will look or function is anyone’s guess. The key here is in knowing that all your needs will be met easily, and in learning how to manifest our abundance without doubt or fear.

Much love, Annette

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Friends, this interview with JS Mineset’s Bill Holter is not for the faint of heart. It contains information you absolutely must share with your friends and family, no matter how closed-minded they are, no matter how many times you may have tried to warn them in the past. This may well be their last chance to protect themselves from an economic calamity so severe that they will never recover.

Holter warns, “I think what we are looking at is an EVENT that you’re not going to be able to recover from. If this market snaps and the markets close, and you’re not in position, you’re out. You’re out for the rest of your life. This is going to be an EVENT that you can’t recover from.”

As readers of SGT Report know, Silver is the best performing commodity asset of 2016 thus far, and there are some very quantifiable, very important reasons for it. This may well be your last chance to protect yourself from what is coming.

Bill Holter-Gold Only Insurance for Coming Financial Armageddon ~ Greg Hunter


Gold expert and financial writer Bill Holter says there is “no rule of law,” and criminal activity has suppressed the price of physical gold. Holter says, “We have been through a four year period of time where paper gold has been pounding the price of physical gold. You have people who were strong legged, hard money guys who are weak in the knees now, and they shouldn’t be. My hope is we can strengthen some weak knees, to not sell you only insurance in a financial Armageddon. It is mathematically coming. There is absolutely no possible exit with the system intact and the rule of law.”

Harley Schlanger “PEOPLE WILL LOSE EVERYTHING” ~ SGTreport.com


Harley Schlanger, historian and national spokesman for LaRouchePAC joins us to discuss current geopolitical events including Putin’s gamesmanship in Syria where he has outmaneuvered Obama and exposed the fraud of the US “war on terror” by actually fighting ISIS, which the Pentagon and Obama does not want.

Incidentally, in March of 2014 while at the Hague in the Netherlands, President Obama warned the world that he is very concerned about the possibility of a nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan – a puzzling and frightening admission from a “leader of the free world”. Given that western governments are very keen on using false flag events to steer public policy and opinion, one wonders what Obama knows. Harley and I discuss.

We also cover the deteriorating global economy, and the fact that the American people had better wake up soon, because once the Dollar collapses under its mountain of debt and broken promises, Harley explains, “People aren’t going to have money soon. If we don’t change the policies we’re going to have a global blowout much much bigger than 2008, probably much bigger than 1929 to 1933 and people will lose everything”.

Chris Martenson “$40 Trillion Lost in Next Crash” ~ USA Watchdog Greg Hunter


Economic researcher Chris Martenson, who also holds an earned PhD in Toxicology, says watch China because the recent signs are not good. Martenson contends, “You get your early signals from the place that is closest to the true economic action, and China is the center of that. So, to me, watching commodities tank first, gyrations in the Chinese stock market second, says third, you better be prepared for a big deflationary event or a big crash. . . . This is the mother of all crashes because the crash of 2008 was actually a side show. . . . We are going to discover that, like all bubbles, you return from where you started. . . . That means $40 trillion will have to get wiped out in the U.S. market alone.”

SGTreport – THIS IS THE BANKSTER’S GREATEST FEAR — Harley Schlanger


Reblogged from FollowingWorldChange

Published on Jul 1, 2015

Our friend Harley Schlanger, Historian and national spokesman for LarouchePAC is back with us to process the developments in Greece as it defaults on IMF austerity and usury in favor of a future for its people over the criminal international Banksters.

Harley notes, “This is the worst case scenario for these Bankers. The reality is there is something new on the horizon. A new financial system outside of the control of what George Herbert Walker Bush called the New World Order. It’s fragile, but it’s coming into existence. And this is what the Banksters fear more than anything else.”

Harley asks a very important question as we approach what ‘Independence Day’ in July 4th: “What will the United States do? Where we are under the same captivity of an austerity driven global Bankster domination. Will the American people recognize that the Greeks should be our allies, the BRICS nations should be our allies? Or will we continue to go along with this London-Wall Street DICTATORSHIP?”

As we document the collapse for the first day of July, 2015 Harley reminds us that “after the collapse “There is very little that will remain standing. There’s an interconnection, it is a Domino effect.”

Simon Black – JP Morgan private banker: “We can’t make money anymore…”


Reblogged from FollowingWorldChange.wordpress.com

July 1, 2015
Singapore

Yesterday over coffee, a friend of mine leaked the news that JP Morgan’s private banking division here in Singapore is going to start charging negative interest rates.

I almost fell out of my chair.

He’s a successful hedge fund manager and one of their best customers. So when he received the notice, he rang up his private banker and demanded to know why.

Between ridiculously low interest rates (banks are closing loans here for 0.9% or lower) and the increasing costs of compliance, “we can’t make money anymore…” was the response.

It certainly paints a clear picture of how screwed up the entire financial system is.

Compliance is a major component in this. Bankers around the world are buried up to their eyeballs in paperwork and regulations now.

They can’t make a move or approve a single transaction without first doing anti-money laundering, terrorist financing, and tax evasion due diligence.

Imagine it like this: your banker rings you up tomorrow and says,

“The government of China requires us to have all of our depositors fill out this paperwork. So I need you to send this form back to me ASAP…”

You’d probably think it was a joke.

Or at a minimum think, “Wait, what? I’m not Chinese. You’re not a Chinese bank. Who cares about some stupid Chinese regulation?”

And you’d be right.

Except that’s precisely what the United States is doing right now.

All over the world, bankers are contacting their customers and forcing them to fill out paperwork to comply with idiotic US government regulations. Even when there’s no connection to the US.

Here in Singapore, the bankers are completely miserable about it.

They’re so angry for having to call customers and say, “Yes I know you’re in India, and I know we’re in Singapore, and I know you’ve been a customer for 10 years. But you still have to fill out this US government form or else we’ll close your account.”

It’s ridiculous– all of this because the US government is bankrupt.

A few years ago they passed the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA)– a major part of their crusade to stamp out tax evasion and bring in more tax revenue.

FATCA is now in full force. Banks all over the world have been forced to enter into information sharing agreements with the IRS, meaning that they have to report on all of their customers and force them to fill out meaningless forms.

Needless to say, this costs a lot of money.

If you own a business, you can just imagine how frustrating and expensive it would be to have your employees toil away on senseless paperwork instead of… you know, doing real business.

The US government tells us that all of these disclosure programs have brought in about $6.5 billion in tax revenue.

Yet the costs of compliance are estimated to cost at least $8 billion, with some estimates over 10x higher.

Now that’s a neat trick. Uncle Sam gets the money and passes off the costs to everyone else.

And those who don’t comply with America’s rules are destroyed.

The most blatant example of this was last year, when a French bank was fined $9 billion for doing business with countries that Uncle Sam didn’t like.

Bear in mind, this was a French bank, not an American bank.

They violated no French laws. Yet they had to pay the US government $9 billion for doing business with places like Cuba.

(Ironically, Cuba is now BFFs with the United States, but it’s not like the bank is going to get a refund.)

More recently, the US government destroyed an Andorran bank that was accused of weak anti-money laundering controls.

And a few years ago they took down the oldest private bank in Switzerland.

Every bank in the world has seen these incidents, and they’re scared. They could be next.

And that’s why you can’t get a single financial transaction done anymore without first submitting a mountain of paperwork to prove that you’re not a terrorist. Or financing terrorists. Or laundering money. Or doing business with the Axis of Evil.

Even outside of banking it has become utterly ridiculous.

A friend of mine here runs one of the largest bullion depositories in Singapore; he wanted to buy some raw gold and have it made into bars, so he contacted a refiner.

The refiner said, “Sure no problem. I just need you to send us some compliance documentation before we get started.”

Then he sent a list of no fewer than 22 items that he needed to submit– copies of licenses, passports, certificates, etc.

22 items. Just to have a refiner make some gold bars. Ridiculous.

So obviously they’re not going to waste their time. Which means there’s some business that could have been done, but won’t, simply because of the compliance costs.

The US government has really screwed the world on this. Paperwork is the priority. Not business.

And all because America is bankrupt.

This trip to Singapore has been very eye-opening for me as I’m just now starting to understand how much people within the financial system despise the US government.

They feel like they’re being forced at gunpoint to be volunteer spies and tax collectors, simply because US politicians have been financially irresponsible.

And to me, it’s the biggest sign yet that America’s financial dominance is coming to an end. They’ve essentially engineered it themselves by alienating the whole world.

The transition isn’t going to be smooth. And it won’t happen overnight. But there will come a time, and likely soon, when the United States gets displaced.

And the rest of the world can hardly wait.

Until tomorrow,

It is somewhat amusing that the word ‘crisis’ originates from Ancient Greece.

It’s actually a medical term; Hippocrates wrote extensively about ‘crisis’ being the key turning point in disease progression– the time at which it either overcomes the patient, or it subsides.

And though the word ‘crisis’ is thrown about routinely these days, it’s safe to say that Greece is now truly in crisis in the purest sense of the definition.

Same with the euro, for that matter.

A century from now when future historians write about our time, it’s highly likely they’ll conclude that the euro was the dumbest invention of this age.

And that will really be saying something because the competition is fierce: pet rocks. Acid-washed jeans. FATCA. Google Glass. Fox Business News. Obamacare.

But the euro deserves first prize in the ugly contest.

The idea was to take completely incompatible economies, pretend that they were all Germany, and put them under one monetary roof simply because they were on the same continent.

This is ridiculous, especially today. It’s 2015. Geography is an irrelevant anachronism.

Imagine jamming Argentina, Australia, Angola, and Azerbaijan into a currency union simply because they all start with the letter “A”. It’s just as pointless and arbitrary as geography.

And when one of them starts to collapse (probably Argentina), rather than admit their mistake and dissolve the whole stupid idea, the bureaucrats spend massive amounts of other people’s money fruitlessly trying to hold the project together.

This is what’s happened in Europe.

Every time they wrote a bailout check or extended another loan package to Greece, all the bureaucrats did was INCREASE their risk exposure.

It’s like running back into a burning building– literally the *exact opposite* of what any sensible person would do.

Eurocrats have spent untold billions of other people’s money to save face, just so they wouldn’t have to admit that Project “Make Everyone Germany” has failed.

But what they never acknowledged was that no matter how much they extend and pretend, the disease will always reach its crisis.

And this financial disease is going to slay the patient. History is very clear on this point: debt kills.

Greece long ago reached the point of no return where they were borrowing money just to pay interest. Now it’s time for brutal honesty: game over.

The best example of brutal honesty is across the pond in Puerto Rico– America’s Greece. The governor of Puerto Rico, Alejandro Garcia Padilla, did not mince words when he described the island’s prodigious debt:

“The debt is not payable. There is no other option. I would love to have an easier option. This is not politics, this is math.”

The lesson is pretty clear: a bad system will fail. Especially when that system is built on a mountain of debt and deceit.

It might take years, but it happens. Just look at Greece; it’s taken nearly six years from when it was first identified to reach today’s crisis.

The time in between can either be an opportunity or a curse.

For some, time is an opportunity to take action– to quietly take defensive steps like moving money abroad.

Greeks had the opportunity to do that long ago when the euro was strong and the capital controls didn’t exist.

But for most people, time is a reason to procrastinate. They think that because it didn’t collapse today, tomorrow will be just fine. So they stick their heads in the sand. Or somewhere else.

And now those people are standing in line at ATM machines across Greece with empty garbage bags trying to figure out how to survive against strict capital controls.

Don’t wait.

Until tomorrow,

SGTreport – THE SILVER SQUEEZE: Comex is Losing Control


Published on Jun 25, 2015

Dave Kranzler from Investment Research Dynamics.com is back to discuss the treachery of the United States Congress and Senate who have betrayed the American people once again by approving the fast tracking of the TPP, which Dave says is the death nail for the American middle class.

We also cover the all-time high silver open interest on the Comex, the Cartel is piling on new paper shorts at record levels and Dave says, “This is potentially building to the mother of all short squeezes, and I think the fact that they keep piling on more and more naked short interest on the Comex tells us that they’re losing control of this.”

SGTreport – THE GOLBAL ECONOMIC BOILING POINT — Brien Lundin


Happy Father’s Day Dads! Brien Lundin, owner of the 44-year old Gold Newsletter and owner & producer of the New Orleans Investment Conference joins us to discuss the increasingly dire global economic outlook, the future of gold and silver prices, the onslaught of inflation in the United States – and the probability of hyperinflation as the FED continues to debase the currency, the nearly all-time low in the HUI and the opportunities ahead, and much more.

Brien says, “The Federal debt cannot be managed without some significant degree of monetary debasement. Cheapening the Dollar so that the debt is paid off in Dollars that are worth LESS.”

[Ed. Note: see definition of “Worthless”]

“There’s absolutely no doubt, it’s a simple mathematical exercise, so people really need to be ready for that.”

John Embry “Gold and Silver are the Cheapest Assets on the Planet” ~ Greg Hunter


How will gold and silver do in the next meltdown? John Embry, Senior Investment Strategist at Sprott Asset Management, contends, “I find stocks severely overvalued, and I find bonds more overvalued, and I would lump urban real estate into that category as well. So, traditional assets are extremely overvalued. To me, the two really undervalued assets are gold and silver. They are significantly undervalued and everybody hates them. . . . Embry goes on to charge, “I would say gold and silver are as cheap as they were when gold was $250 an ounce and silver was $5 per ounce. They are the cheapest assets on the planet.”

Dr Paul Craig Roberts: GREAT DANGERS AHEAD – June 2, 2015


Note: Wow! Pretty strong statements about the current state of affairs in D.C. on both sides of the isle, especially coming from a respected former White House cabinet member….

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Former assistant treasury secretary : We have two dangers ahead . One is reckless policy of federal reserve . That policy is reckless because they are creating money from nothing in order to support balance sheets of the banks that should fail . The other danger is inability of Washington DC to realize that is not a uni power that can dominate the world . They have seen extraordinary failure of their policy in recent past and yet they continue with more of the same .

Robert Reich on the Real Reason the Corporate-Friendly TPP Is Nearly Dead


In an era of staggering inequality, free trade turns out not to be good for everybody.

How can it be that the largest pending trade deal in history – a deal backed both by a Democratic president and Republican leaders in Congress – is nearly dead?

The Trans Pacific Partnership may yet squeak through Congress but its near-death experience offers an important lesson.

It’s not that labor unions have regained political power (union membership continues to dwindle and large corporations have more clout in Washington than ever) or that the President is especially weak (no president can pull off a major deal like this if the public isn’t behind him).

The biggest lesson is most Americans no longer support free trade.

It used to be an article of faith that trade was good for America.

Economic theory told us so: Trade allows nations to specialize in what they do best, thereby fueling growth. And growth, we were told, is good for everyone.

But such arguments are less persuasive in this era of staggering inequality.

For decades almost all the gains from growth have been going to a small sliver of Americans at the top – while most peoples’ wages have stagnated, adjusted for inflation.

Economists point to overall benefits from expanded trade. All of us gain access to cheaper goods and services.

But in recent years the biggest gains from trade have gone to investors and executives, while the burdens have fallen disproportionately on those in the middle and below who have lost good-paying jobs.

So even though everyone gains from trade, the biggest winners are at the top. And as the top keeps moving higher compared to most of the rest of us, the vast majority feels relatively worse off.

To illustrate the point, consider a simple game I conduct with my students. I have them split up into pairs and ask them to imagine I’m giving $1,000 to one member of each pair.

I tell them the recipients can keep some of the money only on condition they reach a deal with their partner on how it’s to be divided up. They have to offer their partner a portion of the $1,000, and their partner must either accept or decline. If the partner declines, neither of them gets a penny.

You might think many recipients of the imaginary $1,000 would offer their partner one dollar, which the partner would gladly accept. After all, a dollar is better than nothing. Everyone is better off.

But that’s not what happens. Most partners decline any offer under $250 – even though that means neither of them gets anything.

This game, and variations of it, have been played by social scientists thousands of times with different groups and pairings, and with remarkably similar results.

A far bigger version of the game is being played on the national stage as a relative handful of Americans receive ever-larger slices of the total national income while most Americans, working harder than ever, receive smaller ones.

And just as in the simulations, those receiving the smaller slices are starting to say “no deal.”

Some might attribute this response to envy or spite. But when I ask my students why they refused to accept anything less than $250 and thereby risked getting nothing at all, they say it’s worth the price of avoiding unfairness.

Remember, I gave out the $1,000 arbitrarily. The initial recipients didn’t have to work for it or be outstanding in any way.

When a game seems arbitrary, people are often willing to sacrifice gains for themselves in order to prevent others from walking away with far more – a result that strikes them as inherently wrong.

The American economy looks increasingly arbitrary, as CEOs of big firms now rake in 300 times more than the wages of average workers, while two-thirds of Americans live paycheck to paycheck.

Some of my students who refused anything less than $250 also say they feared allowing the initial recipient to keep a disproportionately large share would give him the power to rig the game even more in the future.

Here again, America’s real-life distributional game is analogous, as a few at the top gain increasing political power to alter the rules of the game to their advantage.

If the American economy continues to create a few big winners and many who feel like losers by comparison, opposition to free trade won’t be the only casualty.

Losers are likely to find many other ways to say “no deal.”
