Farewell to Homo Oeconomicus - by Annika Reich and Marc Batko
The model of homo oeconomicus is antiquated and over-simplified. Dominant economic models are not based on a realistic picture of humans. In the economic model, we act as egoistic beings who are only interested in optimizing our own advantages. The model does not know different human motives that could be differently activated depending on the context.

Casino capitalism - by Ted Rudow III, MA
Black Monday is how economists are describing Monday’s market turmoil, which saw stock prices tumble across the globe, from China to Europe to the United States. China’s stock indices fell over 8 percent on Monday and another 7 percent today. On Wall Street, the Dow Jones Industrial Average initially fell a record 1,100 points before closing down nearly 600 points. The decline also caused oil prices to plunge to their lowest levels in almost six years.

Thomas Piketty: Germany has never repaid its debts. It has no right to lecture Greece - by Thomas Piketty
Conservatives, especially in Germany, are about to destroy Europe and the European idea, all because of their shocking ignorance of history... Germany is really the single best example of a country that, throughout its history, has never repaid its external debt. Neither after the First nor the Second World War. However, it has frequently made other nations pay up, such as after the Franco-Prussian War of 1870, when it demanded massive reparations from France and indeed received them. The Fre...

White Privilege in the Animal Rights Movement - by via Animal Liberation Press Office
If animal liberation is to succeed, the movement must address the concerns of oppressed humans as well as non-humans. Human oppression cannot be co-opted or ignored, and it certainly cannot be pushed aside within a movement that is supposed to be based on compassion and care for all animals.

From the Free Economy to the Share Economy - by Christoph Lutge and Nils Ole Oermann
In 1970 the economics Nobel Prize winner Milton Friedman argued the social responsibility of business was only maximization of its profits. This is not true any more today. the responsibility of businesses goes beyond profit maximization... More can be demanded from those with more power - that jobs are created, good, innovative and very reasonable products or services are offered, that they pay into the social treasury and pay their taxes.

Patients are not Customers - by Hartmut Reiners and Tom Berthold
Mainstream economics is always based on the idea of homo oeconomicus, an egoist who maximizes his own advantages. In economics, the extreme form of egoism is treated as rationality. This is problematic. Thought models shape perception and conduct. July 30 was Medicare's 50th birthday and Friday August 14 is Social Security's 80th birthday. Millions were saved from abject poverty and hopelessness. Time to celebrate and fight for the social state instead of the punishing state!
