text Steer clear of work morality! by Steffen Nikolai Boddin

The Pajaro Valley lies about 100 miles south of San Francisco. Its rich soil, abundant groundwater, and unusually long growing season make it one of the most productive agricultural regions in the United States. For years its main population center, the town of Watsonville, produced most of the frozen food on the nation’s dinner tables. Thanks to an insipid television commercial, millions of Americans in the 1950s knew it as “the Valley of the Jolly Green Giant.”...

text Is the Financial Crash 2.0 Coming? by Isabelle Bourboulon
Market ideology has been on the advance since the 1980s. Only a few voices warned of the risks and instability of the liberalized financial markets. The European states mobilized 4.5 trillion euros to prevent their banking system from collapsing. After they profited from the generous bailout packages, the banks began to speculate against the most indebted countries....

text Against Market Radicalism by Christa Luft
Capitalism is not "the end of history" as the American Francis Fukuyama postulated in 1992. The system question is open! The economy should be re-embedded in society. What seems rational in micro-economics collides with the irrationality of maximum profits as an end-in-itself. Capitalist elements could be implemented in a socialist economy. A paradigm shift is necessary....
