Myths of Free Trade: Attac Refutes TTIP Arguments (tags)

TTIP and CETA are far more than trade agreements. They help strengthen the power of transnational corporations and weaken democratic institutions. Attac promotes just trade instead of free trade. Labor rights, environmental standards and democracy must have priority...

Alternative Trade Mandate, 20pp (tags)

The Grand Illusion-Mega-Bubble World Economy (tags)

Self-righteousness is really the grand illusion. The global North consumes the resources of the global South. We are literally devouring the future. Given resource scarcity and climate change, the world economy as a whole is a bubble economy, a monstrous bet on an impossible future.

The Time is Ripe: Democratic Controls of the Financial Markets! (tags)

Re-Regulation of the Economy (tags)

"Finance markets become judges over the economy punishing mistakes with (threaten-ed) capital flight." Resisting re-regulation represses blind spots and confuses the goat and the gardener, the market and the fire dept and the problem and the solution.

The Contradictions are our Hope (tags)

"We Refuse to be Buried by Globalization" (tags)

"The theory of the end of work is nonsense. It is part of an ideology. We are not in a crisis but in a process of change in which the whole labor force is no longer needed.. Our problem is that we stubbornly cling to an old concept of work.."

The World is not a Commodity: Another World is Possible (tags)

"Attac is an element of the anti-war and peace movement because a just world is impossible without peace.. We reject the militarization of foreign policy and war actions of the German army abroad.."
