Laura Ingraham Explains Background About Facebook Co-Founder Chris Hughes and His Call to Breakup Facebook

Facebook co-founder says it’s time to break up the social media company; feels disappointed in himself for letting the Facebook News Feed algorithm empower nationalist leaders.

Christopher Hughes co-founded and served as spokesman for Facebook, with Harvard roommates Mark Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz, Eduardo Saverin, and Andrew McCollum.

Hughes was publisher and editor-in-chief of The New Republic from 2012 to 2016.

Hughes is also a co-chair of the Economic Security Project, which is a network committed to advancing the debate on unconditional cash and basic income in the United States.

Hughes has led the Economic Security Project’s work to rewrite federal and state tax codes to create a monthly tax credit for Americans most in need, a policy which would create a guaranteed income for working people in the United States.

Adrian Salbuchi Warns of Intentional High Oil Prices to Bring About Globalization — One World Government


Ben Bernanke testified before the Senate Banking Committee and warned that a rise in oil prices as a result of the conflicts in the Middle East could threaten US growth and spark dangerous price rises. Author and researcher Adrian Salbuchi says while rising oil prices seem to go against US interests there has been a process of weakening the US to get it out of the way for globalization.

Human Development Index

The Human Development Index (HDI) is a comparative measure of life expectancy, literacy, education and standards of living for countries worldwide that is used to distinguish whether a country is a developed, a developing or an under-developed country. The HDI is a standard means of measuring well-being, especially child welfare. The HDI is also used to measure the impact of economic policies on quality of life. The index was developed in 1990 by Pakistani economist Mahbub ul Haq and Indian economist Amartya Sen.

Under the two main categories of Developed and Developing Countries, there are four broad categories* based on HDI:
DEVELOPED COUNTRIES
[1] Very high human development (added in the report for 2007),

DEVELOPING COUNTRIES
[2] High human development
[3] Medium human development
[4] Low human development.

* Starting in the report for 2007, the first category was referred to as developed countries, and the last three are all grouped in developing countries (split in the same report).
