text Studying Economics Today is Like Brainwashing Ulrich Thielemann 2013-11-06 12:23 PM
The blind trust in efficient markets must be replaced and bankers given a new understanding. Profit making is different than profit maximization. Banking should be a public function not a casino and the real economy and the environment not abandoned. Economics should be a pluralist discipline, open and welcoming to alternatives and critical perspectives. (text/plain)

text Is Obama Fundamentally Shifting His Middle East Strategy? Shamus Cooke 2013-11-05 2:14 AM
The Saudis and Israelis are fuming. Obama’s talks with Iran’s new President Hassan Rouhani point to a possible new direction in U.S.-Middle East policy. Iran is the regional archrival of the Saudis and Israelis, who for decades have shared the mantle as the main U.S. allies in the Middle East. (text/plain)

During the annual International Monetary Fund meetings, the IMF is meeting with the government of Grenada on a debt restructuring plan. Grenada has a public debt-to-GDP of nearly 110 percent.

text Obama’s War Grows as Support Shrinks Shamus Cooke 2013-09-10 11:02 AM
Some careful listening has exposed the lie that a U.S. attack (war) against Syria would be, as Obama put it, “a shot across the bow,” i.e. a “tiny war.” But even before the first missile is launched the birth of Obama’s baby war began to grow, and when it’s eventually unleashed it will resemble any other fully matured war, complete with massive destruction, the death of untold innocents and yet another Middle Eastern nation torn to pieces.

text Declaring Syria Regime Illegitimate Sends Strong Human Rights Message and Exposes Lenders Jennifer Tong 2013-09-03 8:28 PM
Over the last year, a religious antipoverty organization has met with U.S. Treasury and White House officials to encourage them to declare the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad an illegitimate government. This action would impose restrictions on lending to Syria that supports its military or the needs of the Assad regime. When governments or financial institutions make this declaration it lets lenders know that if they lend to Syria they may not receive a return on their investment. Types of lending and financing that could be affected are arms contracts with Russia and oil investment from Iran. (text/plain)

text How the U.S. Political Left is Failing Over Syria Shamus Cooke 2013-09-02 1:18 PM
It’s now painfully clear that Obama’s war on Syria is a replay of Bush’s march to war in Iraq, both built on lies. Zero evidence has been put forth that proves the Syrian government used chemical weapons. On the contrary, evidence has been recorded that suggests the U.S.-backed Syrian rebels are responsible for the attack. (text/plain)

text The Lie of “Limited” War Against Syria Shamus Cooke 2013-09-01 2:39 AM
The rats are jumping ship. Obama’s strongest allies can’t stomach the stench of lies that are the foundation of the war effort against Syria. Even England, whose entire foreign policy is reduced to asking “how high?” when the U.S. says “jump,” opted to stay grounded for Obama’s war drive. (text/plain)

text War With Syria and Its Repercussions Shamus Cooke 2013-08-28 2:15 PM
A U.S. invasion of Syria could be the first war based on a YouTube video. After a video was released showing victims of an alleged chemical weapons attack, England immediately declared the Syrian government responsible, while Obama began drawing up military plans, saying there was “little doubt” the Syrian Government was at fault (zero evidence currently exists to suggest this). An extra U.S. warship has already been deployed in response. (text/plain)

text Egypt’s Revolution After the Smoke Clears Shamus Cooke 2013-08-18 7:18 AM
In times of crisis people strive for easy answers to complex situations. In Egypt this has resulted in absurdly digestible sound bites, where one side is labeled “good”(the Muslim Brotherhood), the other “bad” (the army), and the revolution as a whole is condemned as an atrocity. But the situation in Egypt is especially contradictory, and untying the social-political knots of the revolution requires avoiding pre-packaged catchphrases. (text/plain)

text A Path Forward for Egypt’s Revolution Shamus Cooke 2013-08-06 9:55 AM
The battle for the future of Egypt is underway, and it’s chaos. There has been violence on both sides of the divide, with the military inflicting the heaviest doses on supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood. The violence combined with any lack of long-term solution could bode poorly for Egypt’s future, but the situation is in extreme flux, and by no means anywhere settled. There is still abundant hope for most Egyptians to achieve a better world, though time is of the essence. (text/plain)
