    Capitalism: Trump to transfer education money to military
    • The 2019 Budget proposal by the Trump administration entails massive cuts to student aid programs. One of the most significant cuts is the elimination of Public Service Loan Forgiveness program. This program allows students who pursue a career in public service to receive loan forgiveness after 120 qualified payments on a repayment plan. This proposal will hurt workers, such as teachers, who devote their lives towards the betterment of society. The bourgeois parliament finds it more appropriate to deliver tax cuts to billionaires and debt bondage for the mass of workers.

      Another key strategy of the Trump administration is to reduce the amount of funding Department of Education receives. The proposed budget for the department is set to decrease 10.5% from 2017 levels. The “balanced budget” of fiscal conservatives reduces programs that support the working class and enacts programs that benefit the oligarchs.

      Yet rockets and nukes will get more. Seems like smart move.

      April 22, 1870 the great man was born.

      The slave who is aware of his slavish condition and fights it is a revolutionary. The slave who is not aware of his slavish condition and vegetates in silent, unenlightened, and wordless slavery, is just a slave. The slave who drools when smugly describing the delights of slavish existence and who goes into ecstasies over his good and kind master is a grovelling boor. You do not realise that instead of turning the slave into a revolutionary you are turning slaves into grovellers. All your talk about freedom and democracy is sheer claptrap, parrot phrases, fashionable twaddle, or hypocrisy. It is just a painted signboard. And you yourselves are whited sepulchres. You are mean-spirited boors, and your education, culture, and enlightenment are only a species of thoroughgoing prostitution. For you are selling your souls, and you are selling them not through need, but for “love of the thing”.

    Capitalism: Components and materials prices rise in all electronic industries
    • IC foundries, and PC and handset manufacturers continue to encounter rising costs of components and materials, and will see their gross margins come under downward pressure in 2018.

      Prices for silicon wafers, passive components, DRAM, and other chip components and materials have been rising on tight supply, the sources indicated. Contract IC and device manufacturers are under increasing cost pressure, the sources said.

      In the silicon wafer market, for example, supply continues to lag demand. Chip demand for automotive electronics, IoT, AI and cryptocurrency mining applications has been robust, while major silicon wafer producers remain reluctant to expand substantially production capacity.

      Semiconductor wafer prices will continue rising in 2018 and 2019, with prices for 6-, 8- and 12-inch wafers all looking bullish, GlobalWafers chairwoman Doris Hsu was quoted as saying in previous reports.

      Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) disclosed previously a rally in silicon wafer prices already undermined its gross margin by 0.2pp in 2017. The foundry expects silicon wafer prices to continue rising to eat away 0.5-1pp of its gross margin in 2018.

      In addition, the supply of DRAM and passive components for handsets, PCs and servers will remain tight in 2018 pushing up the chip component prices. The tight supply of passive components, such as MLCCs and aluminum electrolytic capacitors, will likely become more severe this year as major suppliers put increased focus on their high-ASP and high-margin automotive and industrial offerings, according to industry sources.

      The supply of conventional MOSFET chips has also fallen short of demand, with major suppliers extending delivery lead times to 3-4 months, the sources said.

      Nice work of free market hand.
