S. Korean Judicial System:Acquit the two journalists, Kim Oujoon & Choo Chinwoo - by repost
The Korean Park government is seeking to jail two journalists who exposed a murder case involving two relatives of the corrupt Park administration over a family run foundation. In light of the attack on the North Korean government it is significant but not surprising that the corporate controlled US press is completely silent about this travesty of justice and the role of the criminal government of South Korea.

Capitalism and Its Crisis Proclivity - by Elmar Altvater and Conrad Schuhler
The liberal economists of the 19th century claimed no crises could occur in capitalism since every supply creates its demand. On the other hand, Marx and Engels recognized early on the causes for crises in capitalism. The contradictions of the accumulation process lead to crises. Capitalists want to minimize wages as much as possible... The present crisis is a system crisis, possibly the most severe in the last 500 years. While economic crises have a cyclical character, crises of nature have ...

How Universal Basic Income Will Save Us From the Robot Uprising - by George Dvorsky
As we head deeper into the 21st century, it's becoming painfully obvious that there are fewer and fewer jobs available. As noted by Marshall Brain, founder of How Stuff Works and author of Manna, there are more working-age people in the U.S. receiving some form of welfare than there are working-age people who do not.

Wealth as a Problem - by Will Hutton
The wealth of others has become more a problem than an incentive. Capital is blind, Thomas Piketty says. Capital grows faster than the economy. Differences in wealth are inherent in capitalism but do not represent a natural law. A society can accept them or act against them. Piketty shows how easy it is for the rich to evade taxation. Piketty proposes bold solutions: a top tax rate up to 80 percent, an effective inheritance tax and a global wealth tax.

Self-Determination Means Market Determination - by Franz Schandl and Gotz Eisenberg
We face the continuing dissolution of traditional types, forms and rules, not a new type, a new form or a new rule...People increasingly rely on themselves since they fall out of the old patterns... What was once called estrangement or objectification should appear as workers' own interest. Corresponding to the market has to be our elementary need. We have to follow it like a train of capitalist lemmings... Karl Polanyi spoke of a dis-embedded econmy.

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...
