service for all communications inside germany in the future this is something they have said perhaps they would like to roll out to across europe but for now it's only going to be here in germany that information e-mails and phone calls and text messages will only travel on to him and so there's now this comes out following the revelations of just how much germany was spied on as sponsored by the n.s.a. and british secret service is all of this coming out from the the leaks that edward snowden revealed to the various media outlets in fact just to sum up how much germany was spied on one leak that was revealed in beagle news magazine in june of this year showed it's around a million e-mails phone calls and text messages were intercepted in germany in the for each month the announcement by the telecoms actually probably prompted all the major operators to say that they want to follow suit vodafone among them as well.
9:03 am
telefonica said they would also try to roll this out for their customers however there are some that are skeptical of whether it could work due to the the nature of the modern communications however telecom is saying that they're determined to protect their customers information from the prying eyes of the spice and the n.s.a. scandal has also shaken the credibility of the dot com domain like here she talked to the chief of a major malaysian investment firm who moved all these data to russia's dire use own and sees this as a start of a global exodus we hear. from. proof we the world got from mr snowden that certain organizations in the west are listening into medical records of their own citizens and the e-mail traffic of g. mail yahoo hotmail i do believe it's time to say goodbye to dot com and has an

9:05 am
a matter of time before the bad people find those and so what will happen is they'll be exploited that's why you have to change the locks like changing the lock on the door of your apartment. now on r.t. dot com we are reporting on how the n.s.a. gets its hands on your friends list on social networks along with other personal contact data and don't forget to check out our twitter feed for the latest updates on the story. well after the two weeks of government paralysis u.s. senators say they're close to restoring state functions and authorizing more borrowing you've got two days left to do so or risk a fold that would likely trigger a global crisis and on top of that now it tells us the public mood is getting ugly . this self-inflicted shutdown is causing panic around the world as washington scrambles to avoid default the global economy is at risk of being thrust back into recession well at home millions will have to cut their losses either way deal or no
9:06 am
deal businesses that were unable to work at full capacity public sector contracts which will see delays and payment and unemployment which is already on the rise due to the shutdown but possibly the most ironic thing about this government shutdown now in its third week is that it's not saving money it's costing america at least one hundred sixty million dollars a day and given the crisis has entered its fifteenth day the overall cost could be as much as two and a half billion dollars and that number of course is expected to grow and the political debate is hampering a rise in the debt ceiling but also leaving sick americans out in the cold for each week of the shutdown hundreds of patients cannot be accepted for treatment at the national institutes of health including cancer patients seventy five percent of the staff is not working because of the shutdown and it's the patients in need of medical treatment that are suffering veterans are outraged at the closing of public
9:07 am
parks and more monuments due to this shutdown the government has run out of cash to pay some eight hundred thousand federal workers during the deadlock over the weekend thousands came out in d.c. and stormed the barricades at a world war two memorial calling for the government to stop using veterans as political pawns in this battle for the budget while another group of retired military personnel are set to protest here in washington d.c. this week again starting very rally at that war memorial the department of veterans affairs is seeing the backlog of a disability disability claims grow along with the frustration and uncertainty among the military community also prominent faith leaders are set to join locked out workers at republican offices to pray. in march for an end to the shutdown they're expected to call attention to each representative down on the debt ceiling encouraging them to vote to end this standoff so as the shutdown continues we are
9:08 am
seeing more and more protests in the capital and more people in different groups demanding the government do their job and get a budget passed. well there may be a program it's not a good deal being talked about now wouldn't resolve the crisis but rather delay it setting the scene for another budget showdown early next year but this is nothing new according to jim rogers author of street smarts adventures on the road and in the markets we've been kicking the can down the road prince sixty years as an american i do you think we got this much we're the largest debtor nation in the history of the world we've got to do something about every year that goes by and we go deeper and deeper into somebody's got a problem one way or the ok but how can it be solved i mean the senators are now saying that they've got a solution a temporary fix is what they say that will last for a few months but what happens after that i mean it all seems like a do now something but think later approach. well that's exactly right you use the
9:09 am
word temporary think that's what it is marina same old they will come out a few days and they will announce everything is ok no. problem two three from now. and we'll be back at the same place we are now only worse because the debt will be worse and countries that are lending to america and really you know that russia china few other countries starting to say we've got to do something else we cannot keep putting money into u.s. dollars and the u.s. government on this thing is going to have the i'm not the only one who knows that many other countries this starting to say we have to find an alternative to the u.s. dollar because these guys are not from. a national financial hasn't even religious figures have all urged washington and they in past economists and former british treasury official neil mccann america's inconsistency has tarnished

its reputation. i think that the one of the key problems that american policymakers face is that this ongoing fiscal dysfunction and periodic fiscal crises you'll recall that we were down this road back in two thousand and eleven when america was stripped of its aaa status by standard and poor's and then we had the fiscal cliff at the end of two thousand and twelve it was a real risk of america falling back into an economic recession and here we go again with the shutdown and the debt ceiling crisis and i think these periodic crises undermine confidence in u.s. economic policy they undermine confidence in the u.s. dollar as the world's leading reserve currency and if this continues if this dysfunction continues then over time i think the more nervous investors will be more downside risks with the global financial system more of a chance that the u.s.
9:11 am
economy falls into recession which would inevitably have a knock on effect elsewhere in the global economy international investors will be looking for a reform of the international monetary system and they'll be challenging the role of the dollar as the leading reserve currency. now reducing reliance on the u.s. dollar has been discussed ever since the credit crunch struck back in two thousand and eight at sixteen pm g.m.t. the kaiser report looks at china's efforts to d.m. merican ice the world. he says criticism and caustic ridicule on washington the news agency called the us civilian slayer prisoner torture and meddler and others affairs and said the pax americana was a failure on all fronts well i mean china should walk the walk instead of just talking the talk so mcdonalds kentucky fried chicken kicked out coca-cola they're making your citizens obese and you're getting diabetes so you know they talk the talk but will try to walk the walk simultaneously when they say they want to d.m.

proposing a much better law for switzerland limiting executive pay to being twelve times higher than that of the lowest paid employee although this plan isn't making headlines it seems like a much better idea because it doesn't to motivate people to be productive and yet it would create almost utopia like levels of wealth inequality also if the bosses salary is tied to the employees that a lot of people be getting raises very soon this one to twelve pay ratio is much better than the free swiss francs and it gets my seal of approval but that's just my opinion.
