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.

$5.3 Trillion Daily - by Ulrike Herrmann
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... Every free trade agreement should be rejected since the theme currency speculation does not occur. Problem solved.

Argentina's grace period to pay bonds restructured after its 2001 default expires July 30th. United States District Judge Thomas Griesa ruled Argentina cannot pay the 92% of restructured bond holders unless Argentina also pays hold-out predatory hedge funds in full.

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...
