Obama Arc of Instability, Destabilizing the World One Region at a Time

Nick Turse, TomDispatch: 'It s a story that should take your breath away: the destabilization of what, in the Bush years, used to be called 'the arc of instability.' It involves at least 97 countries, across the bulk of the global south, much of it coinciding with the oil heartlands of the planet. A startling number of these nations are now in turmoil, and in every single one of them - from Afghanistan and Algeria to Yemen and Zambia - Washington is militarily involved, overtly or covertly, in outright war or what passes for peace.'

Message to Banks: Pay US Back

George Goehl and LeeAnn Hall, Truthout: 'Today, the Association of Washington Business, the powerful chamber of Washington State businesses, is in the midst of its annual policy summit in the beautiful mountain resort of Suncadia. There are golf tournaments, wine tastings, a keynote by Gov. Christine Gregoire and seminars such as, 'Where Will the Money Come From?' led by Phyllis Campbell, the Northwest regional director of JP Morgan Chase Bank.

EU-Vergleich: Deutsche hinken beim Reallohn hinterher

'Die Verdienste der deutschen Arbeitnehmer sind nur um 0,6 Prozent gestiegen. Im EU-Vergleich liegen die Deutschen hinter Portugal. Trotz des Wirtschaftsaufschwungs sind die Reallöhne 2010 in Deutschland im Vergleich zum Vorjahr nahezu stagniert. Nach den jüngsten, bisher noch unveröffentlichten Erhebung der zuständigen EU-Behörde Eurofound zu den 'Einkommentwicklungen 2010' stiegen die Löhne im vergangenen Jahr in Deutschland real nur um 0,6 Prozent - im Jahr 2009 waren es noch 2,4 Prozent. Damit liegt Deutschland europaweit im Mittelfeld?' Artikel von Christoph B. Schiltz in Die Welt online vom 19.9.2011

Stimulus II would not work, either

Future of Freedom Foundation
by Sheldon Richman


President Obama won t use the 'stimulus' label to describe his nearly half-trillion-dollar jobs bill, but that refusal can t hide the fact that he has no idea how economies recover from recessions. 'Stimulus' is a tainted label because his $800 billion bill in 2009 was a failure...

The real solution to the debt problem

Ludwig von Mises Institute
by David S. D'Amato


Today, on the heels of a debt ceiling increase calculated to forestall a federal-government default, we both are witnessing and are yoked to the many indispositions of what could be characterized as a permanent debt economy. The Federal Reserve System, as the radix and arguably most defining component of the American economic paradigm, is fostering a scourge on productive activity that has metastasized through society to a now-catastrophic degree...

Waste and fraud pervade wartime contracting

Wrights 2012
by R. Lee Wrights


The final report of the Commission on Wartime Contracting in Iraq and Afghanistan, chartered by the U.S. Congress, has concluded that at least $31 billion, and possibly $60 billion, has been lost to contract waste and fraud. They also found that not only did contractors sometimes outnumber the military personnel they were supporting, often the contractors were doing things only federal employees could legally do and oversight of their work was frequently absent or ineffective. But these were not the most disturbing findings of the commission'...
