    Viome: A Workers’ Experiment With Global Appeal

    Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

    Published on Reports from the Edge of Borderline Democracy, by Augustine Zenakos, May 23, 2013.

    “No worker who is not a shareholder, no shareholder who is not a worker,” say the workers of VIOME (Industrial Mineral), a factory in northern Greece. Their plan to take over the factory and to manage it themselves has generated waves of encouragement and support throughout the world. In this report for UNFOLLOW magazine, Christos Avramidis and Antonis Galanopoulos investigate the background to current events, and ask what the future might hold for these workers and their plan, what the reaction of the Greek government is likely to be, and whether workers’ self-management is feasible in a capitalist context.    Read the rest of this entry »

    Published on Spiegel Online International, by Samiha Shafy, May 21, 2013. (12 images in the Photo Gallery: Threats Mounting to Great Barrier Reef).

    Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is rapidly losing its coral, to the point that UNESCO may soon place the natural wonder on its “in danger” list. Climate change is one culprit, but so is the country’s booming extraction industry. Environmentalists warn that time is running out for the reef … //

    Friday, May 24th, 2013

    Published on Intrepid Report (first on legalienate), by Frank Scott, May 23, 2013.

    … Just another day at empire’s headquarters.

    The imperial subjects in the rest of the world suffer far more with the austerity religion of fundamentalist capital turning Europe into a snake pit of material inequality. Things are much worse in the Middle East with savagery increasing in Syria, as hypocritical clucking from those who are behind the mass murder induces mass nausea among those still spared from the descent into mass idiocy.   Read the rest of this entry »

    Monday, May 20th, 2013

    200,000 Year Old Annunaki Cities Discovered in Africa, 79.13 min, uploaded by Disclose TruthTV, Oct 15, 2012:
    Publisher and producer Michael Tellinger discussed his study of ancient ruins at the southern tip of Africa, which he believes were associated with a vanished civilization that ET visitors, the Annunaki, brought together over 200,000 years ago, when they came here to mine gold. The ruins, which he’s investigated along with Johan Heine, consist of thousands of stone structures over a large area. The structures show evidence of their extreme antiquity through erosion and patina growth, he detailed. One of the most important ruins he referred to as “Adam’s Calendar,” a monolithic stone calendar that could mark time out by the day …;   Read the rest of this entry »

    Video-Vortrag von Prof. Claus W. Turtur, 97.47 min, von NuoVisoTV am 6. September 2012 hochgeladen:
    Ein Dauerbrenner in den Medien sind die ständig steigenden Energiekosten. Der globale Energieverbrauch steigt stetig an. Die Verbrennung der fossilen Energieträger geht zunehmend zulasten unserer Umwelt und treibt den Treibhauseffekt immer schneller an. Auch die Atomenergie hat uns unlängst am Beispiel Fukushima gezeigt, dass diese Energieform auch nicht keine Zukunftslösung darstellt.   Read the rest of this entry »

    Where Has All the Money Gone?

    Saturday, May 18th, 2013

    Published on ZNet (first on TomDispatch), by David Vine, May 15, 2013.

    Outside the United States, the Pentagon controls a collection of military bases unprecedented in history. With U.S. troops gone from Iraq and the withdrawal from Afghanistan underway, it’s easy to forget that we probably still have about 1,000 military bases in other peoples’ lands. This giant collection of bases receives remarkably little media attention, costs a fortune, and even when cost cutting is the subject du jour, it still seems to get a free ride.   Read the rest of this entry »

    Gangster State America

    Thursday, May 16th, 2013

    Published on PaulCraigRoberts.org, by blog owner, May 13, 2013.

    There are many signs of gangster state America. One is the collusion between federal authorities and banksters in a criminal conspiracy to rig the markets for gold and silver. My explanation that the sudden appearance of an unprecedented 400 ton short sale of gold on the COMEX (Commodity Exchange, Inc., a division of the New York Mercantile Exchange NYMEX) in April was a manipulation designed to protect the dollar from the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing policy has found acceptance among gold investors and hedge fund managers.   Read the rest of this entry »

    German Election: Embattled Pirates Looking for Rapid Reboot

    Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

    Published on Spiegel Online International/Blog, by Charles Hawley, May 13, 2013.

    “We will definitely be voted into federal parliament. I can do nothing to change that.” Thus spoke Johannes Ponader, a top member of Germany’s Pirate Party one year ago. It turns out, he may have been mistaken. In the last 12 months, the party has seen its support plummet — to below the 5 percent necessary for seats in the Bundestag. And this weekend, the Pirates tried to finally turn their ship around.   Read the rest of this entry »

    Divisions between major powers dominate G-7 meeting

    Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

    Published on World Socialist Web Site WSWS, by Nick Beams, May 13, 2013.

    A meeting of G-7 finance ministers held outside London over the weekend was marked by widening differences over economic policy and concerns about the implications of the “quantitative easing” monetary policies of the world’s major central banks.

    The differences over economic policy are being fuelled by the fact that almost five years since the global financial crisis erupted, the world economy, far from showing any signs of a sustained recovery, evinces deepening recessionary trends.  Read the rest of this entry »

    Why aren’t we talking about public goods? A proposed research agenda

    Sunday, May 12th, 2013

    Published on Real-World Economics Review Blog RWER, by June Sekera, May 9, 2013.

    Public goods pervade the lives of citizens in all advanced democracies.  Yet virtually no one talks about public goods: we rarely hear the term outside of economics classrooms.

    In Samuelson’s sixty-year-old formulation, public goods are “non-rivalrous” and “non-excludable and are born of market failure.  In this market-fundamentalist world, public goods are inherently a “problem.”   Read the rest of this entry »
