text Video: Why Capitalism is Killing the Planet, 27 min www.socialistproject.ca 2014-05-06 4:58 AM
Market anarchy as promoted by Adam Smith is different than prioritzing human needs. We must put the brakes on industrial growth. Equivalent jobs must be provided for closed industries. (text/plain)

text The Two-Speed World Jorg Goldberg 2014-05-05 3:36 AM
The new indebtedness is a consequence of the crisis caused by the financial industry-and in no way owed to an excessive social state, demographic change and so forth.. There are many critics of this policy of mastering crisis by flooding the financial markets with fresh money. (text/plain)

text 220 schoolgirls enslaved by Boko Haram Nick Cohen 2014-05-03 4:15 PM
Quote: "If occidentalism was absurd in the past, it's preposterous now. Boko Haram is not reacting to western intervention in Nigeria, for there is none. The only way you can pretend the west is to blame is by agreeing that knowledge is "western knowledge", rather than the property of the entire human race, and that the education of girls is "western cultural imperialism" – a road that leads you to nihilism as soon as you step down it." (text/plain)

text Charles Dickens as Economist Rainer Hank 2014-05-02 6:53 AM
Ultimately the whole industrial revolution appears like a fairytale that becomes true. At the end of the 19th century, the GDP in England was six times as high as 1834. Human possibilities of life and consumption improved to a tremendous extent. Dickens described this exciting process. (text/plain)

The entrance of private equity from 2005-6 was a big shift. They created a totally different logic, where short-term extraction of profit was the only goal. In 2011 the shit really hit the fan. (text/plain)

text Capital in the 21st Century: Thomas Piketty Thomas Piketty 2014-04-27 10:32 AM
"There is no escaping the fact, however, that social science research on the distribution of wealth was for a long time based on a relatively limited set of firmly established facts together with a wide variety of purely theoretical speculations." (text/plain)

text The Future of the Captured State Simon Johnson 2014-04-25 10:42 AM
(text/plain)

text Re-feudalization Stefan Howald 2014-04-24 4:42 AM
Neoliberalism has brought us back to Rockefeller's best times. Bill Gates is 1.4 million times as rich as the average American. A "feudal lifestyle" is made out to be worthwhile and in no way negatively described. Thus "re-feudalization" is dulled as a polemical term. (text/plain)

text TTIP Attacks on Wages, the Social and the Environment Verdi German union 2014-03-25 7:57 AM
The belief that growth and prosperity for all people are promoted by free trade is as old as capitalism. This is often wonderfully represented in the model worlds of economists. But reality looks different. Specific particular interests are sold as the general interest. (text/plain)

text On the Death of John Kenneth Galbraith Rudolf Hickel 2014-03-17 5:12 AM
The great economist John Kenneth Galbrath was shocked at the public squalor alongside private affluence. He devised the horse-sparrow theory, horses must be fed so the sparrows can live. A healthy economy means shrinking the financial sector and expanding the public sector. (text/plain + 1 comment)

Major Western Powers invited to New Zealand gives opportunity to adovate a global 'turn-around' by adopting the 'bottom-up' emphasis of global ethical human rights (developed in NZ) to replace 'near absolute', 'top-down' control of 'neoliberal absolutism'. (text/plain)

text TTIP: International Mega-corporations prevent social and ecological globalization Rudolf Hickel 2014-03-04 5:42 AM

text Inhuman Capital Konstantin Wecker 2014-02-25 5:15 AM
In polls many people massively criticize this system of market-conforming democracy and then vote for it with large marge majorities. This cognitive dissonance is the result of a reeducation of society. The values and norms are success and efficiency... (text/plain + 1 comment)
