A world run for shareholders

by Serge Halimi Saturday, Jun. 14, 2014 at 5:14 PM

The future could be full of free Internet books, community centers (as in Vancouver B.C.), English editions of Le Monde diplomatique, exchanging roles, cloud workers and soft power.

Serge Halimi is the editor of Le Monde diplomatique. To read his article published in the English June 2014 edition, click on

http://mondediplo.com/2014/06/07ttip

"The threat of the American free-trade eagle crossing the Atlantic to ravage Europe’s ill-protected lambs has taken over public debate after the EU election campaign. It’s arresting, but politically dangerous. It ignores the risk that local authorities in the US may soon face under new neoliberal regulations, which will prevent them protecting employment, the environment and health rights. But it also shifts attention away from European companies — such as Veolia in France or Germany’s Siemens — which are just as eager as US multinationals to take legal action against states that dare to threaten their profits (see The injustice industry, page 13). And it overlooks the role of European institutions and governments in the creation of a free trade zone on their own territory.

Opposition to TTIP (the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) should not target an individual state, not even the US. What is at stake is wider and more ambitious: it concerns new privileges demanded by investors everywhere, perhaps as compensation for the economic crisis they caused. If conducted properly, a worldwide battle could consolidate the international forces of democratic solidarity, currently less well organised than those of capital..."

and Lori Wallach's "Ten threats to Americans" published in the June 2014 edition of Le Monde diplomatique:
