UN Votes for Process to Enact Bankruptcy Treaty and Stop Vulture Funds - by james
The UN General Assembly passed a historic resolution to begin treaty negotiations to enact a global bankruptcy process and stop predatory hedge funds. The resolution passed by a super-majority vote of 124-11 with 41 abstentions. The US voted no along with 10 other countries. The bankruptcy process could make it more difficult for hold-out investors to block countries from debt restructuring and could limit future defaults.

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

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.

It's a mystery! The Disappearing Records of Bob Lee's $34,000 Wells Fargo Loan - by Becky Johnson (posted by Norse)
One of D.A. Bob Lee's principal demands in the Santa Cruz Eleven cases has been "restitution" to Wells Fargo Bank.

On Wednesday August 20th, Judge Steven Siegel held a hearing on a motion by attorney Alexis Briggs to uncover the records of Wells Fargo's 2010 loan to Santa Cruz District Attorney Bob Lee.

Anti-Democratic Straitjackets - by Pia Eberhardt
The TTIP Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (also called TAFTA) is an undemocratic corporate investment agreement that allows corporations to sue sovereign states for lost profits. This agreement negotiated in secret since 2013 does not allow states to sue corporations and the decisions of the 3-person arbitration courts are irreversible. Foreign investors are protected; social and environmental regulations are threatened. Public sector jobs, health, education, drinking water, fr...

A Frenchman Admonishes Americans to Equality - by Martin Killian and Markus Diem Meier
With his book and the data, Thomas Piketty has shaken the self-understanding of American society. In 2010 the richest one percent had around 20 percent of the total income. In the 1970s the share was under 10 percent. Inequality has become an American trademark. In his book "On Democracy in America," Alexis de Tocqueville described a relatively egalitarian society.

Eliminating currency speculation would be simple. The big central banks must cooperate, the American Fed, the Bank of England, the European Central Bank and the Japanese Central Bank... $5.3 trillion whirl through the world daily seeking lucrative currency bets...
