CAPITALISM

Crony Capitalism and Corporatism

Recently Mike Konczal (“‘Corporatism’ is the Latest Hysterical Right-Wing Accusation,” The New Republic, December 15) attacked “corporatism” as a pernicious right-wing meme, ostensibly aimed at exposing Obama’s policies for “enriching the well-off” but in reality a “reactionary” agenda freeing big business from accountability.

The Waning of the Modern Ages

The “arc” of capitalism, is about 600 years long, from 1500 to 2100. It is our particular (mis)fortune to be living through the beginning of the end, the disintegration of capitalism as a world system. It was mostly commercial capital in the sixteenth century, evolving into industrial capital in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and then moving on to financial capital—money created by money itself, and by speculation in currency—in the twentieth and twenty-first. In dialectical fashion, it will be the very success of the system that eventually does it in.

97% Owned - Positive Money [The Director's Cut]

97% Owned is a new documentary that reveals how money is at the root of our current social and economic crisis. Featuring frank interviews and commentary from economists, campaigners and former bankers, it exposes the privatised, debt-based monetary system that gives banks the power to create money, shape the economy, cause crises and push house prices out of reach. Fact-based and clearly explained, in just 60 minutes it shows how the power to create money is the piece of the puzzle that economists were missing when they failed to predict the crisis.

Zionist prime minister of Sweden (Moderaterna) Fredrik Reinfeldt and wife Filippa caught stealing/embezzling millions

We've all seen how the Zionist Conservatives (Moderaterna) have sold out virtually everything they could of municipal and county municipal operations.

Supply-Side Nonsense

Obama’s solution for the Depression is supply-side economics, whose champions claim that if the government cuts taxes on the wealthy, then the wealthy will invest in new factories, and hire new workers, thereby producing tax revenue.

Nonsense!

European Spring: The Gradual Demise Of Capitalism

In the face of the current disaster of the capitalist system, one can ldetermine that capitalism's ideology, its promises for societal well-being, were false from the start. One can no longer defend capitalism in good faith. Marx was right, over a century and a half ago: capitalism has hung itself in its excess, in its greed for more and more and more.
