- Retail will change. Smaller, local, co-operative/ community type stores. Beans, lentils, oats etc, these will be sold without plastic packaging. This will become more popular. Retailers will want to change as packaging is taking up too much space in transit and on shelving.

 

Hi all - a (partial) hit...  Don't know if this is the right place to post.

This is actually a great idea—I’m surprised it hasn’t happened already.

To take it a step further, plastic will all but disappear from our lives, at least our children and grandchildren's lives. Right now there is no viable plastic recycler in the world. We think there is, but greed, corruption and desperation to charge for something that is not even being delivered is already happening 

All over the world where recycling exits, we continue to separate our plastics into bins from paper,cardboard and glass but except for those few plastics being currently remade into something else the beginning levels have already stopped. 

We may think it is now going to Malaysia in lieu of the now non accepting Chinese market, but it is being buried or left in "garbage mountains" that have already decimated the quality of life for entire families living in them, on them, and desperately searching for other items they can use or sell.

Many, many companies are already using alternative packaging, it's not yet visible on a big scale (except for more paper mailers without bubble wrap inside from Amazon for the last few months but its starting.  Also lots more bulk items grouped and purchased as one saving on plastics somewhat that way.

@celticwitch I'd call that a hit and I posted it as a hit on the Prediction page. Thanks for pointing it out.

Plastic Bags to Be Banned in New York; Second Statewide Ban, After California

  • March 28, 2019
The Styrofoam ban took effect on January 1 2019, but the city gave restaurants and businesses six months to transition out of using it. Now, violators will be fined -- $250 for the first offense, $500 for a second and $1000 for three or more.Jul 1, 2019
Here's What to Know About New York's New Styrofoam Law - NBC ...

It's been in the works, I expect more will follow.

That's wonderful and so good to know. Plastic bags have been banned here in Salem since early this Speing as well as other cities in Oregon.  It's not statewide yet but will be!

Styrofoam will take more time but how great others are banning it. Hurray!

One city, one State at a time!

- December (not given the year).  

- Palace of Westminster is shrouded in black. We're in mourning, either someone has died or democracy is dead.

 

Hi

Might have another hit.  

British Parliament is to be suspended for 5 weeks in September. This means MPs won't be able to debate or pass legislation. Boris Johnson says this is normal process as its a new government, but its at worst possible time before Brexit Day. It reduces the amount of time MPs have to debate Brexit and any deals.  

Watch this, I feel he will try to extend this suspension right up to Brexit Day on 31/10/19.

Fed Cuts Interest Rates by Another Quarter Point

Source: New York Times
WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve cut interest rates by a quarter of a percentage point on Wednesday, its second move since late July, as it tries to insulate the economy against rising political risks and the fallout from a global slowdown. 

Read more:  https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/18/business/economy/fed-interest-rate-cut.html

 

Perhaps the Fed did err in raising rates so quickly after that "historic tax reform" that was going to spur "growth like we have never seen before" however, didn't they recently lower rates a few months ago?

And in related news, the NY Fed injected billions in stimulus into the overnight lending market for the second day in a row---

Fed’s First-in-a-Decade Intervention Will Be Repeated Wednesday

These are the same actions that were taken in 2007.

The stress in the overnight lending market, a critical corner of finance that rarely makes headlines, forced the New York Federal Reserve to pump $75 billion into the banking system on Friday. That marks the fourth-straight day of emergency action from the Fed, a level of intervention unseen in more than a decade.
And this is just the beginning of the Fed's  
efforts to ease the cash crunch.
 
The NY Fed announced Friday it will inject up to $75 billion into the overnight markets each weekday until October 10. In addition to this short-term capital, the NY Fed will pump in as much as $90 billion through three 14-day operations.

The topic of bartering came up on this thread a little while ago, and that got me me thinking about a prophetic near death experience I read a few years back following my own NDE. The woman who experienced the NDE in question, which occurred in 2005, was shown "our financial institutions crumbling or better said our money not being worth the paper it is written on. I was shown silver and gold coins being used to purchase things. They said that in time, we would be going back to the barter system."

Make of it what you will. But I do want to reiterate a point I made earlier: that with novel forms of gift exchange and gift economics, a return to bartering need not be a regressive return to medieval village living.

I'm not an astrologer, but I follow a handful of astrogers who specialize in the correlation between astrological events and stock market movement.  They're all forecasting October will be an economically volatile month. Mostly, it has to do with the influence of Pluto and/or Saturn, a long Mercury retrograde period, and the endings/beginnings of certain astro-financial cycles (that I don't quite have a handle on).  Anyway, for whatever it's worth, I'm sharing the dates being highlighted as particularly volatile.  Often the volatility occurs on the EXACT predicted date.  Sometimes, however, it's more like a range of opportunity, with the volatility event occuring either a couple of days before or a couple of days after.  

10/07 Monday, Sun square Saturn
10/09- 10/10 - Wednesday-Thursday, critical market peak or market reversal dates
10/11- 12/07 - Mercury retrograde period = "chaos on Wall Street and worldwide markets"
10/13 Sunday, Full moon square Pluto
10/14 Monday, Sun square Pluto***
10/28 Monday, Sun oppose Uranus, New moon opposite Uranus

***NOTE: This was the same astrological signature when the stock market crashed in October 2007

Might be a good month to buckle up and hang tight.

Thanks for sharing, let's see what happens.

apparently October can be a very volatile month:

The October Effect:

https://www.investopedia.com/terms/o/octobereffect.asp

The events that have given October the reputation for stock losses have happened over decades, but they include the Panic of 1907Black Tuesday (1929), Black Thursday (1929) Black Monday (1929) and Black Monday (1987). Black Monday, the great crash of 1987 that occurred on October 19 and saw the Dow plummet 22.6% in a single day, is arguably the worst single day. The other black days, of course, were part of the process that lead to the Great Depressi​on - an economic disaster that stood unrivaled until the mortgage meltdown nearly took out the whole global economy with it.

October has traditionally been the most volatile month for stocks. According to researchfrom LPL Financial, there are more 1 percent or larger swings in October in the S&P 500 than any other month in history dating back to 1950.

I tend to write comments on the NYT articles, Washington Post and even Yahoo(which is filled with Russian bots and T supporters) and I remark with this info:

All Americans need to also read the following information that is Statistically Accurate about how our economy always does better under a democratic president and begs they question: Why would you ever vote for a republican ever again?:

https://evonomics.com/economists-agree-democratic-presidents-better-making-us-rich-eight-reasons/

https://www.jec.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/democrats/2016/6/the-economy-under-democratic-vs-republican-presidents

I figure if only ONE GOP voter or T supporter reads my comment then its starts with "1".
