2016/06/17 - The GEAB bulletin No 106 is now available. Here is the summary

Global systemic crisis, angry nations, G20 - National democracies are preventing the implementation of solutions to the global crisis: they will be removed ... if transnational democracy is not invented

The estimated damage is reported to be in billions of Euros: 1.4 billion estimated in France and several billion in Germany and Canada; Great Britain and Scandinavia have also been affected by similar phenomena lately (almost 2 billion Euros, if we tabulate all of them). Facing such huge claims, how will the insurance companies react... (Read more in the GEAB 106)
