Liberals and progressive forces support the Democratic Party in elections, even though humanity is facing a number of interconnected threats and nightmarish catastrophes: economic, ecological/climate, and others. Democratic liberals, while perhaps the "lesser evil" to the Republican reactionaries, have no solutions to the objective dangers which threaten society with great suffering and destruction. The only real alternative is popular mass struggle or defeat--socialist-anarchism or catastrophes. read full story / add a comment

There has been a flood of books about the Great Recession of 2007-2009 and the limping "recovery" which we are now living through - which the liberal economist Paul Krugman has called a "depression". Of the many works, one of the more interesting is by Foster & McChesney (2012). Among its several virtues are its clarity of style, rare among economists of any orientation. The chapters began as separate articles in the left magazine, "Monthly Review", of which Foster is the editor. (This causes some repetition.) It is a continuation of the previous book, The Great Financial Crisis: Causes and Consequences (Foster & Magdoff, 2009; reviewed by me: Price, 2010). read full story / add a comment

Book review of David Graeber's "Debt: The First 5,000 Years." A good history of debt, credit, and money. Weaknesses in seeing debt as central to economic development, downplaying role of human labor, exploitation, and class struggle. This leads to a misunderstanding of the recent economic crisis, and to a limited and inadequate vision of a post-capitalist future. read full story / add a comment

A sostegno degli scopi anarchici e per capire come funziona il capitalismo, torna utile agli anarchici ricorrere alla teoria economica di Marx. A tal fine, si criticano qui di seguito 3 saggi sull'economia capitalista elaborati da teorici della parecon (Participatory Economics). [English] read full story / add a comment

In support of anarchist goals, and to understand how capitalism works, it is useful for anarchists to use Marx's economic theory. As an illustration, three essays on the economics of capitalism as developed by theorists of Parecon (Participatory Economics) are critiqued. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Paul Krugman, il noto economista liberale, ci presenta il suo programma per mettere fine all'attuale depressione economica, seguendo una strategia keynesiana di espansione della spesa pubblica. Ecco qui la mia critica radicale di questo programma, fatta secondo la prospettiva di un anarchico che crede nell'utilità della teoria economica di Marx. [English] read full story / add a comment

Paul Krugman, the widely read liberal economist, lays out his program for ending the current economic downturn, by following a Keynesian strategy of expanded government spending. I make a radical critique of his program, from the perspective of an anarchist who believes in the usefulness of Marx's economic theory. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

This is the 9th chapter of my serialized book, "Marx's Economics for Anarchists; An Anarchist's Introduction to Marx's Critique of Politiical Economy." It covers Marx and Engels' definition of socialism (communism), expressed in several works, how they thought workers would be rewarded for working, what they meant by the "dictatorship of the proletariat," and how Marx's views contrast with Kropotkin's anarchist-communism. read full story / add a comment

Sabato 11 ottobre partecipiamo alla giornata europea contro i trattati economici in corso. TTIP, CETA, TISA, TTP. Acronimi che sembrano lettere accostate una alle altre prive di significato, a qualcuno ricorderanno il famigerato WTO del 1995, quel trattato sulla libertà degli scambi commerciali che con la deregolamentazione dei mercati finanziari creò la bomba sociale sulla quale siamo seduti. Fu un accordo che portò in tutto il mondo milioni di persone in piazza per denunciare quella che poi si dimostrò essere una grande rapina ai danni dei lavoratori e dei ceti subalterni. Ma chi si ricorda più i tanto vituperati e derisi No Global?

I diversi fattori che al momento sembrano scollegati tra loro delineano il punto di caduta o, almeno, il tentativo del capitale di trovare un nuovo equilibrio internazionale per assicurare una nuova fase di accumulazione capitalistica, in area occidentale (USA-EU). Ciò che viene comunemente definita crisi e che dal 2008 affligge interi popoli sembra non poter uscire dalla propria dimensione monetaria. Una politica monetaria - che vede le banche commerciali protagoniste nella creazione di danaro attraverso il prestito reso possibile dall'aumento del debito - ha una funzione temporale necessaria a proteggere la capitalizzazione del sistema finanziario, ma ha il pregio di mostrare a tutti quali sono le dinamiche del potere finanziario.

High levels of military spending played a key role in the unfolding European sovereign debt crisis — and continue to undermine efforts to resolve it.
A new report by the Transnational Institute — ‘Guns, Debt and Corruption: Military Spending and the EU Crisis’ — looks at the ways in which excessive militarization directly fed into the unfolding European debt crisis, and continues to undermine efforts to resolve it. Below the downlink links and infographic you can find the executive summary of the report.

Poucas vezes pude concordar tanto com Sardenberg (se é que não foi primeira), âncora da CBN, colunista do Jornal da Globo, blogueiro e jornalista da velha guarda no rumo inexorável da curva à direita já feita por Paulo Francis, dentre outros. O comentarista de economia do jornal noturno da empresa líder sugere para Dilma a cópia do modelo de comportamento chinês, pois segundo o próprio:

"Os líderes chineses têm uma habilidade especial para adotar políticas pró-mercado com uma retórica de esquerda para agradar esse lado do Partido. Vire à direita, dê sinal à esquerda — tal é o ensinamento."

Análise de conjuntura pós-eleitoral – passada uma semana da reeleição, a chantagem institucionalizada e o caminho para um governo acuado

Bruno Lima Rocha, 1º de novembro de 2014

O domingo dia 26 de outubro foi um marco na história política recente do país. O mesmo projeto de governo emplacava seu quarto mandato consecutivo, realizando a proeza de reeleger uma ex-guerrilheira indicada como sucessora de um ex-dirigente sindical. Tudo seria um mar de rosas, se estas mesmas rosas, ao contrário do que disse Mestre Cartola, não roubam “perfumes de musas do carnaval” e sim o odor fétido do submundo da política oligárquica que todos vêem e ainda poucos são taxativos a este respeito. Se pudermos caracterizar o momento do curtíssimo prazo pós-reeleição, trata-se de algo muito perigoso.

La segunda vuelta de las elecciones brasileras tiene relación directa con: la proyección del país, la alianza estratégica del bloque político del Mercado Común del Sur (MERCOSUR) y el alineamiento del Brasil dentro de la globalización corporativa: La política exterior de Lula extendida por Dilma (con algunas correcciones en su pragmatismo) es estructuralmente distinta de la del período de Fernando Henrique Cardoso. Se cambiaron el eje y el enfoque. A escala mundial nuestro país refuerza las relaciones Sur-Sur, priorizando específicamente las inversiones en infraestructura y cadenas productivas de América Latina y África. Brasil es hoy un motor del capitalismo mundial. Quien gane en las urnas comandará la 7ª economía mundal.

imageBrasil y la Carrera Electoral en la segunda vuelta – 1 Oct 14 by BrunoL 0 comments

Bruno Lima Rocha*

El país líder de América Latina, de Mercosur y de los acuerdos diplomáticos latinoamericanos se ve hoy en una encrucijada. Existe un consenso desde el medio hacia abajo de la pirámide social brasileña. Nuestro votante medio admite de hecho un retroceso en términos de políticas públicas, no tolerando un discurso que implica la reducción del papel del Estado en la economía y en el logro de los avances en las condiciones materiales de la vida. Marina Silva, exministra del PT para el Medio Ambiente (en el primer gobierno y hasta la mitad del segundo gobierno de Lula) no pudo explicar cómo propone una "nueva política" y tuvo la participación de economistas neoliberales en su equipo formulador del programa de gobierno. El postulado por el PSDB, el senador Aécio Neves y su partido han tenido –y tienen– para explicar (y hacer creer) que en ningún caso irán a desmantelar el aparato de las políticas sociales del lulismo.
