Ministry of Injustice vs. Indigenous Peoples - Brazil's "Rule of Law" & "Democracy" - by Ardaga - Huu-té Dschaam Dscheu
While genocidal efforts against our First Nations are going on the (so-called) minister of Justice José Eduardo Cardozo has adopted the strategy to sit back and do strictly nothing. Entire populations that are categorized as something obsolete and in the way of “progress” have to “adjust” or “go”. Nature and peoples living in harmony with nature are sacrificed for the profit of agribusiness, mining, dams (…). Destruction and desertification full speed ahead – God Growth dema...

Crisis of Freedom - by Byung-Chul Han
Neoliberalism forms a free entrepreneur out of the oppressed worker, an entrepreneur of himself. Everyone is a self-exploited worker of his own enterprise. Everyone is master and servant in one person. The class struggle is also changed into an inner struggle with oneself. Whoever falls today accuses him/herself and is ashamed. One problematicizes oneself instead of society. Byung-Chul Han, author of the 2010 bestseller "Fatigue Society" has now written "Psycho-Politics."

World Trade Organization Attacks Commonsense Country of Origin Labels - by Food & Water Watch
Washington, D.C.—Today, the World Trade Organization (WTO) ruled that mandatory country of origin labels (COOL) rules for meat and poultry that went into effect in 2013 still ran afoul of the global trade rules. The WTO’s compliance panel decided that the goal of country of origin labels was not trade illegal, but it narrowly found that the implementation of the COOL rules discouraged livestock imports from Canada and Mexico.

No Redistribution Without the Social State - by Norman Wagner and Matthias Schnetzer
In Austria 30 percent of the gross domestic product is spent on social services (not including education spending)... Since the 1990s, social security has been increasingly discussed as a financial burden and less as a social achievement... The irony is that the social state is the target of austerity measures in times of economic insecurity with high unemployment and rising poverty although it is then urgently necessary.

Argentina Faces US Contempt Hearing - by james
US Federal Judge Thomas Griesa scheduled Argentina to appear for a contempt hearing on Monday, September 29. At issue is Argentina's failure to follow a court order to only continue to pay the 92% of bondholders who restructured after the country's 2001 default if Argentina pays a group of hold-out hedge funds. Argentina organized payment to restructured bondholders via an Argentine bank to avoid paying the hedge funds. The hedge funds, popularly known as "vulture funds," are asking the judge...

Why a Global Wealth Tax Reduces Inequality - by Thomas Piketty and Hagen Kramer
The distribution of incomes and assets is one of the most controversial themes today. History teaches us that economic forces press in different directions - either to more equality or away from equality. Which will prevail depends on what political decisions we make. The US was understood as the antithesis to the patrimonial societies of old Europe. Up to the First World War, the concentration of assets in the hands of the rich in the US was less extreme than in Europe. In the 20th centu...

Karl Polanyi - Still Actual 50 Years After His Death - by Claus Thomasberger
Karl Polanyi was the author of "The Great Transformation." As in Polanyi's times, the absurdity of the market utopia must be made clear and confronted with social reality. Freedom and democracy are goals to defend, not markets. "Embedding the economy in society" has long been part of socioeconomic discourse. The disaster of the 20th century must be understood as a crisis of modern civilization, not as an economic crisis.
