text Memorandum 2014 - by study group on Alternative Economic Policy
Both Germany and the US follow an economic policy on the old paths without enlightenment. Slight economic stimulation will not solve problems of mass unemployment and corporate welfare. Tax evasion of corporations, tax cuts for the super-rich and trillions for the banks lead to suffering and a revenue crisis. The financial sector must be shriveled and the public sector expanded. Cooperation and competition coexist and depend on each other. Old myths of trickle-down prosperity, enormous bon...

text Political Myths and Elite Misanthropy - by Herbert Schui
In his new book "Political Myths and Elite Misanthropy," professor Herbert Schui explains the myth of the achiever, the myth of state indebtedness, the myth of competition and the market and the myth of market conforming democracy. Clinton used New Testament themes like "new covenant" and created demeaning workfare, the activation state, while encouraging banksters and fraudsters to speculation and the creation of money out of thin air. The economy should be a part of life, not a steamrolle...

text Tax Extenders Cost Billions - by Deborah Field
The GE Loophole isn't just unfair to small businesses; it's a burden to us all. If the loophole is renewed, it will cost $62 billion over the next decade. That's money we won't have to fix roads, build schools, or find medical cures—the kinds of investments that strengthen our communities and boost small business.

text May 2, 2014 A Day That Shall Live in Infamy - by Never Forgive, Never Forget
On May 2, 2014, 39 people died in the Odessa House of Trade Unions in a terrible fire set by fascist friends of Democrat Obama and Republican McCain. The argument that the Democrats somehow prevent fascism has been eliminated; they support fascism, the same as the Republicans. In fact, both the Democrats and Republicans proudly announce they have no difference in foreign policy and they both support the Nazi and Confederate flag wavers in Ukraine. These fascists now sit in power in Ukraine...

Philippines: As the country observes the International Labor Day, Akbayan Party would like to draw attention to the inability of the current economic growth to translate into an improvement in the lives of ordinary workers from both the urban centers and the countryside. While the Aquino administration takes pride on the 7.2 % growth rate for 2013, it cannot mask the fact that this growth has been insufficient to curb massive unemployment and poverty.
