In the age of the brand, logos are everywhere. But why do some of the world’s best-known brands find themselves on the wrong end of the spray paint can — the targets of anti-corporate campaigns by activists and protesters?

No Logo, based on the best-selling book by Canadian journalist and activist Naomi Klein, reveals the reasons behind the backlash against the increasing economic and cultural reach of multinational companies. Analyzing how brands like Nike,The Gap, and Tommy Hilfiger became revered symbols worldwide, Klein argues that globalization is a process whereby corporations discovered that profits lay not in making products (outsourced to low-wage workers in developing countries), but in creating branded identities people adopt in their lifestyles.

Using hundreds of media examples, No Logo shows how the commercial takeover of public space, destruction of consumer choice, and replacement of real jobs with temporary work – the dynamics of corporate globalization – impact everyone, everywhere. It also draws attention to the democratic resistance arising globally to challenge the hegemony of brands.  From www.mediaed.org

Mike Maloney is the author of the world’s best selling book on precious metals investing. Since 2003 he has been advocating gold and silver as the ultimate means of protecting wealth from the games played by our governments and banking sector. In this 90 minute presentation he lays down his ‘most likely’ scenario for the global economy over the next deacde…short term deflation, followed by big or even hyperinflation. Here you will learn the true definitions of inflation/deflation, the difference between currency and money, price vs value, ‘Wealth Cycles’, gold and silver accounting for the expansion of fiat currency, gold and silver supply and demand, the differences between the today’s bull market and that of the 1970s, The Debt Collapse, and more.

    Yes it may one day go to that Amount (gold), but it is not the case that you made money necessarily, BUT you sure did preserve your wealth. Look at it this way…even if you lost a little purchasing power holding physical gold or silver, you did not lose all of its value. You can lose all value in paper silver or fiat paper currency. This happened to several European currencies during the war (WWII) My father remembers this happening twice.

  • It is I only

    I have seen a while ago Gold moving to the $20,000 an ounce. Sure it will! There’s not much “real” Gold on the market to buy & I don’t mean “paper Gold” (there’s a lot of paper but not physical Gold)
    So the price is dictated by availability of it! Supply & demand. Not much supply, so price goes up!
    Even a moron can understand this!

    Gold is “insurance” against devaluation of the paper (fiat) form of exchange. I prefer to look at it as losing less than everybody else :) Gold also has intrinsic value; scarcity; easily divisible; doesn’t fade or disintegrate; universally recognizeable and accepted; maintains its value in relation to other commodities; you actually own it and it is not simultaneously someone else’s liability.
