Every free trade agreement should be rejected since the theme currency speculation does not occur. Problem solved.

¡Abajo las nuevas exacciones criminales del Estado israelíes! - by partido comunista internacional
El jueves 12 de junio al atardecer, tres jóvenes, Gilad Shaar, Yifal Efrad y Naftali Frankel, en momentos en que hacían autoestop en una encrucijada no lejos de Gush Etzion, una colonia judía en territorio palestino, fueron secuestrados por dos militantes probablemente ligados a Hamás, la organización política islámica. Desde ese momento, pasaron 18 días antes que los cadáveres de los tres jóvenes colonos aparecieran. Durante esos dramáticos días, perdieron la vida más de 6 ...

Narcissistic Personality Disorders Entrenched and Encouraged in Corporate America - by Once Bitten, Twice Shy
The U.S. corporatist consumer culture is a breeding ground for individuals with narcissistic personality disorder. Though many activists (including myself) disagree with psychiatric labels, remaining ignorant about the reality of personality disorders, especially narcissism, can result in painful outcomes. There may be a "cure" for narcissism, though not with any pharma pills. The cure for narcissism may involve re-evaluation of our current cultural value systems. That's much harder than just...

Investment Protection at a Crossroads - by Pia Eberhardt
TTIP gives foreign investors the right to sue sovereign governments before ad hoc arbitration courts when lost profits occur as a result of political decisions. These decisions cannot be appealed and undermine social, environmental and labor regulations. A parallel system of justice could attack jobs (especially public sector) and end democracy.

Argentina Responds to Supreme Court with Debt Swap Plan - by Erin Kelso
In reaction to an adverse Supreme Court ruling against Argentina, President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner announced that Argentina would offer new bonds to its creditors governed under Argentine law. The proposed debt swap would involve the 92% of the country's creditors that agreed to restructure in the wake of the country's 2001 default. While the debt swap proposes an alternative for the South American country to avoid paying hold-outs, it fails to reverse the global implications on debt...

Competitiveness - by Lutz Hausstein
A term becomes a myth; the myth becomes a religion. That the German economy has long been too competitive is completely denied. We are all conditioned by the misguided use of terms and connections so a way of looking at things seems absurd. The German economy acts like a bulldozer that flattens foreign economies instead of an economic locomotive.
