Johnson, who cut his film teeth at NYU and made the Emmy®-nominated 2003 HBO documentary Born Rich, here sets his sights on exploring the political, moral and emotional rationale that enables a tiny percentage of Americans – the one percent – to control nearly half the wealth of the entire United States. The film Includes interviews with Nicole Buffett, Bill Gates Sr., Adnan Khashoggi, Milton Friedman, Robert Reich, Ralph Nader and other luminaries. Website: The One Percent.

The Real Causes of the Catastrophic Crisis in Greece and the “Left”

Comments Off

Published on Global, by Takis Fotopoulos, January 16, 2014.

… 2. Capitalist globalization can only be neoliberal:

The Euro-elites simply cannot afford to lose more of their competitiveness. In fact, the real reason for the creation of EU and later of the Eurozone had nothing to do with the ideals of freedom, democracy, human values and the rest of its ideology, as EU’s history has clearly shown. It was the growing gap in competitiveness (in terms of EU’s share of world exports) during the 1980s, which led the Euro-elites to speed up the integration procedures, which were mostly dormant up to then.  Continue Reading…

… but Solutions for the Future Continue to Emerge – Published on Global, by GEAB no. 81, January 17, 2014.

… We have symbolised 2013 as “the first steps in a chaotic world after” (1).

A year which was in effect the new century’s zero year and at the end of which solutions were emerging from all sides. At the beginning of 2014 the spotlight is henceforth on the Eurozone, China, Russia and the BRICS where the tools to shape the “world afterwards” are being designed with incredible rapidity: the “world before” is handing over to “the world afterwards”.   Continue Reading…

… to challenge big five: Ed Miliband to pledge creation of at least two new banks with minimum 12% market share in bid to fix broken system – Published on The Guardian, by Patrick Wintour, Jan 16, 2014.

Labour will set in train “a reckoning with Britain’s broken banking system” to ensure at least two new banks can flourish in Britain with a minimum 12% market share by the end of the next parliament, Ed Miliband will say on Friday.

In a major speech designed to show how a break-up of the domination of the ‘big five’ banks will help Britain pay its way in the world, Miliband will argue that change is needed ” not for retribution, but for reform”.  Continue Reading…

    Offshore Banking, Fraud, and the Crisis

    Comments Off

    Published on Triple Crisis, by Sara Hsu, January 16, 2014.

    The global financial crisis that began in 2008 in the United States had roots in offshore banking, some of which have been revealed: the Bear Stearns’ 2007 Cayman Island hedge fund bankruptcy, in which the company attempted to file offshore to protect U.S. assets, Goldman Sachs’ off balance sheet Cayman deals in shaky asset-backed securities (ABSs), and Citigroup’s creation of structured investment vehicles in London to hide the sales of ABSs.   Continue Reading…

    Say goodbye to the Internet we’ve known – Published on Axis of Logic (first on Mercury News), by Troy Wolverton, Jan 15, 2014.

    If you like how cable television works, you’re going to love how a court decision Tuesday could change the Internet.

    Thanks to the ruling, broadband providers can now exert a lot more control over what sites you visit on the Internet and what services you can access. The decision would allow Comcast, for example, to bar its Internet subscribers from seeing videos from Netflix (NFLX) or from using Vonage’s Internet phone service.  Continue Reading…

    Why the Washington Post’s New Ties to the CIA Are So Ominous

    Comments Off

    American journalism has entered highly dangerous terrain – Published on Global, Jan 13, 2014.

    • … For the CIA, the emerging newspaper role of Mr. Amazon is value added to any working relationship with him. The CIA’s zeal to increase its leverage over major American media outlets is longstanding.
    • After creation of the CIA in 1947, it enjoyed direct collaboration with many U.S. news organizations. But the agency faced a major challenge in October 1977, when — soon after leaving the Washington Post – famed Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein provided an extensive expose in Rolling Stone.  Continue Reading…

    Two Transitions in Brazil: Dilemmas of a Neoliberal Democracy

    Comments Off

    Published on The Bullet, Socialist Project’s E-Bulletin No. 927, by Alfredo Saad Filho, January 13, 2014.

    This article reviews the background and the implications of two transitions in Brazil: the political transition from a military regime (1964-85) to democracy (1985-present), and the economic transition from import-substituting industrialization (ISI, 1930-80) to neoliberalism (1990-present). It subsequently examines how neoliberal economic policies were implemented in a democracy, under the centre-right administrations led by Fernando Henrique Cardoso (1995-98, 1998-2002), and the centre-left administrations led by Luís Inácio Lula da Silva (Lula, 2003-06, 2007-10) and Dilma Rousseff (2011-present).
