Fast Track, TPP and TTIP Should Be Scrapped! - by Thilo Bode
How scandalous that communities and states should lose sovereignty to corporations! In the TTIP negotiated in secret, corporations can sue states for lost profits. The threat of a lawsuit can have a chilling effect on labor and environmental protective regulations. A parallel private arbitration system (ISDS) is created that privileges foreign investors over labor and the environment. Philip Morris, Violea, Vattenfall, Occidental, Pacific Rim and Metalclad are flagrant examples of profit ...

Hypocritical and Hippocratic Economic Policy in Europe - by Andreas Botsch
The crisis is multilayered-a bank crisis, a crisis of wealth distribution and a misallocation of capital between long-term real investments and virtual financial investments, the latter without discernible social benefits...The frugal Schwabian housewife is not a suitable model for fiscal policy. The equation of public and private debt carrying-capacity is a classical fallacy from part to whole. What is right for individuals can be harmful for the whole... Politics should hold to empirical fa...

Indigenous Land conflict in Brazil – Support needed NOW - by Ardaga - Huu-té Dschaam Dscheu
The once ~5 to 6 million Indigenous People in Brazil are down to less than 1 million. And those brave survivors of a genocide machine of half a millennium are still being brutalized and deceived by state and parallel authorities. And while the media reports nothing on it, Indigenous people are fighting for survival, their legal lands and against spree killings right now. This is a brand new eyewitness report. And a plea for YOUR support!

New answers are necessary both to protect social and democratic achievements and to overcome new challenges resulting from finance capitalism, ecological endangerments and...

Growth Criticism and Social-Ecological Transformation - by Norbert Reuter
Unlike a chair, an idea can be shared by a whole people. Words can be like spears breaking the frozen soul (Kafka). Economics as taught today is like brainwashing. Incentives for investing in the real economy are necessary after the phase of credit-bubble prosperity, after the inflation of the financial sector and the repression of alternatives and economic ethics. Possessions can possess us. A de-growth economy, an economy with low or no GDP growth, can be a future-friendly economy.

TTIP: Trifling Economic Advantages at the Cost of Democracy and the Public Interest - by Werner Raza and Heribert Schmitz
The controversial investment-protection agreement establishes a parallel justice giving security to all investors.. The states would be liable for compensations for any lower profits.. The state and local governments could not pass any laws or regulations that could have a negative impact on the profits of businesses. Our democracy could become a paper tiger.. We all know our planet can only survive when we do everything in our power for a sustainable economy in all areas.

Jean Jacques Rousseau said: "Distribution means no one is so rich he can buy others and no one is so poor he must sell himself." A change of consciou9sness is necessary so the population strives energetically for distribution justice. The young generation is socialized today under conditions where m...
