text The bottom 40 percent of the United States combined - by Ted Rudow III, MA
Wal-Mart has announced it will raise its minimum wage to $9 an hour in April, and $10 next year, in a move that will impact about half a million low-wage workers. The increase falls far short of the $15-an-hour living wage demanded by workers who have launched historic strikes against Wal-Mart — and reported retaliation from the company for joining the protests. A 2012 analysis found the six heirs to the Wal-Mart fortune have as much wealth as the bottom 40 percent of the United States comb...

text 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.

text The Catastrophe has Already Begun - by Karl Georg Zinn, Gunter Dueck and J Bischoff
Capitalist growth has become the problem, promotes famines and strangles full employment. Can the world be rescued? Mass unemployment has never lasted as long as today; global problems increase. 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...

text George Orwell in the Government - by Albrecht von Lucke
Writing in 1948 off the coast of Scotland, George Orwell foresaw the time when war would become a domestic necessity to divert the people from economic contradictions. Newspeak is used so lies are called truth and slavery is called freedom. Public squalor exists alongside private affluence. Lobbyists write laws and representatives spend their time fundraising, dialing for dollars. Private losses become public losses as risk managers turned out to be risk creators.

text Venezuela: a Coup in Real Time - by EVA GOLINGER
There is a coup underway in Venezuela. The pieces are all falling into place like a bad CIA movie. At every turn a new traitor is revealed, a betrayal is born, full of promises to reveal the smoking gun that will justify the unjustifiable. Infiltrations are rampant, rumors spread like wildfire, and the panic mentality threatens to overcome logic. Headlines scream danger, crisis and imminent demise, while the usual suspects declare covert war on a people whose only crime is being gatekeeper to...

text Proving you're better than the other guy - by Ted Rudow III, MA
With the recent, "League of Denial", I want to comment. My parents are sport fanatics! It's the spirit of the world the "me first" spirit--do what's best for yourself, win no matter who you have to hurt or step on in order to get ahead of the next guy. That's the spirit of the world, which is just the opposite of what Jesus wants to teach people--to love your neighbor as yourself.

text Food & Water Watch Blasts Approval of Biggest Supermarket Merger - by Food & Water Watch
Washington, D.C.— “The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) put the food industry ahead of consumers by refusing to block the biggest supermarket merger in history. The FTC allowed the Albertsons-Safeway merger to go through almost completely unobstructed after the chains divested a paltry number of grocery stores in a handful of cities. The merger creates the third largest grocery retailer (behind Walmart and Kroger) and leaves supermarket shoppers vulnerable to price gouging.

text The Rebirth of the One-Thousandth Society - by Matthias Schnetzer and Markus Marterbauer
The richest thousandth (0.1%) increased their share in the total wealth very intensely since the 1980s. Their share is as much as the bottom 90%. While the millionaires increased their wealth enormously, the mass of the population is exposed to the continuing economic crisis. The disinformation campaigns of owners of capital against a sensible taxation of mammoth assets has the wide support of the media. Discussion about a recovery of taxes on the wealthy suffers in the illusion of shock and...
