text 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...

text 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...

text 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.

text Free Trade Agreement TTIP Endangers Democracy - by Christoph Bautz, U Storost and A Sawatzki
Investor courts of arbitration create an exclusive special right for foreign corporations. They could demand unlimited compensation when they see profits narrowed by democratic decisions. The lawsuits will be decided by economic lawyers who change roles as prosecutors, defendants and judges, not independent courts. Investor protection trumps labor and environmental rights! Stopping the TTIP is central to preserving sovereignty, environmental justice and the public sector

text The Free Trade Trap - by Harald Klimenta
Political economies are calibrated to a form of economics oriented exclusively in competitiveness and high profits... The selling off of public services through the agreement on trade with services (GATS) and the new editipn of MAI were prevented because of social protest... A crucial challenge for the movement critical of free trade is that there is no open social discussion about what trade policy we need and want.
