It Is No Longer Safe To Invest In US
By : Der Spiegel - Wednesday August 17, 2011
The head of state-owned Chinese rating agency Dagong, Guan Jianzhong, 57, speaks to SPIEGEL about China’s economic model, why he believes the rating system used by the Big Three is a threat to the world and the twilight of Western dominance. SPIEGEL: You recently said that it would be a “catastrophe” if an American rating agency downgraded the United States’ credit rating. Now that Standard and Poor’s has taken that step, is the situation as bad as you (...)

Economic Hubris - Fixing the economy: We got it wrong
By : Prof. James K. Galbrai - Wednesday August 17, 2011
In early January 2009 two White House-bound economists — Christina Romer and Jared Bernstein — predicted that if the stimulus bill were passed, unemployment would peak at 8% by midyear and then start coming down. If there were no stimulus, they said, joblessness might hit 9% and not peak until 2010. Romer and Bernstein had the risky job of hyping policy, but they weren’t alone in their optimistic views. Forecasters at the Congressional Budget Office, the Federal Reserve (...)

INEQUALITY: Of the 1%, by the 1%, for the 1%
By : Joseph E. Stiglitz - Monday August 15, 2011
INEQUALITY: Of the 1%, by the 1%, for the 1% By Joseph E. Stiglitz Americans have been watching protests against oppressive regimes that concentrate massive wealth in the hands of an elite few. Yet in our own democracy, 1 percent of the people take nearly a quarter of the nation’s income—an inequality even the wealthy will come to regret. It’s no use pretending that what has obviously happened has not in fact happened. The upper 1 percent of Americans are now taking in (...)

The Evils of Unregulated Capitalism: Remedy for the US economy: end the wars
By : Joseph E. Stiglitz - Monday August 15, 2011
The Evils of Unregulated Capitalism Remedy for the US economy: end the wars, rein in military and drug costs, and raise taxes – at least on the very rich ef. In June 2009, the then President of the UN General Assembly Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann, and former chief World Bank economist and Nobel laureate Joseph E. Stiglitz had called together a “conference at the highest level” on the issue of the world financial and economic crisis and its impact. This was the urgent (...)

Iran: A Bridge too Far? The weapon that could defeat the US in the Gulf
By : Mark Gaffney - Sunday August 14, 2011

A word to the reader: The following paper is so shocking that, after preparing the initial draft, I didn’t want to believe it myself, and resolved to disprove it with more research. However, I only succeeded in turning up more evidence in support of my thesis. And I repeated this cycle of discovery and denial several more times before finally deciding to go with the article. I believe that a serious writer must follow the trail of evidence, no matter where it leads, and report back. (...)

Our Long National Nightmare Isn’t Over, It’s Just Beginning
By : David Michael Green - Sunday August 7, 2011
In the 1930s, the only thing we had to fear was fear, itself. Today, the main thing we have to fear is us, ourselves. Looking out over the horizon, I’m starting to wonder just how many shades of dark there are on the pallette. Lately, I get the feeling that we’re about to find out. I wish I could say that this society did our best to fight our demons, but that the odds were simply insurmountable. You know. Like we were just sitting there by ourselves on our remote little (...)

USA - We’ve Had The Debtbacle, And Everything Nasty Before it, So Now What Do We
By : Dan Stafford - Thursday August 4, 2011
The first thing that we need to do as a people is stop abdicating the most basic office of our government - the Precinct Representative - and take back control of the local party organizations. People think "I just can’t do any more, I’m too tired and stressed-out." Or they think that all politics is a dirty game full of slimy people. That’s because good people have abdicated their responsibility in our democracy by letting the most basic party office go mostly unfilled. (...)

Putin says US acting as ’parasite’ on world economy SELIGER, Russia — Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Monday accused the United States of acting as a "parasite" on the world economy by accumulating massive debts that threatened to shake global finance. "The country is living in debt. It is not living within its means, shifting the weight of responsibility on other countries, and in a way acting as a parasite," Putin told a group of pro-Kremlin youth in central (...)

This week marks the end of the dollar’s reign as the world’s reserve currency. It marks the start of a terrible period of economic and political decline in the United States. And it signals the last gasp of the American imperium. That’s over. It is not coming back. And what is to come will be very, very painful. Barack Obama, and the criminal class on Wall Street, aided by a corporate media that continues to peddle fatuous gossip and trash talk as news while we endure the (...)

The wealthiest nation on earth is not actually obliged to starve our senior citizens. We don’t need a military 670% more expensive than the next largest one on earth. We don’t need to fund health insurance corporations instead of healthcare. And we don’t need tax breaks for billionaires. In fact, we don’t need billionaires.

Obama October Surprise: Blaming al Qaeda
By : Diana Lee - Friday July 15, 2011

To keep the "war on terror" alive and continue to instill fear, the Obama administration needs a false flag scenario, like the 9/11 attacks, to justify to the American public for sending thousands of ground troops to invade Africa, starting with Libya. Just 2 weeks ago, the White House comes out with the latest counterterrorism strategy to turn inward to monitor the HOMELAND. Without giving any credible explanation, John Brennan, White House counterterrorism adviser, stated: "Indeed, (...)

By Husayn Al-Kurdi What are the reasons why the US government and its current President Barack Obama and his cabinet, are so vehement in their insistence that Libyan leader Mu’ammar el-Qaddafi "must go"? Why does the American regime insist on Qaddafi’s removal, to the extent of overseeing repeated bombings of his residences and other places where he may be staying or visiting, following a long series of assassination and coup attempts? Why do they continually reject overtures (...)

Minnesota: Broken deals, bitter words and a state shuts down
Monday July 4, 2011
Broken deals, bitter words and a state shuts down Dayton renewed his call to tax the rich; GOP pointed to harm of long-term debt. The governor and legislative leaders worked into the evening in a last-ditch bid for resolution. Dayton and Republican legislators have been stalemated since January over how to balance the budget and close out the projected deficit. Dayton largely won election on a promise to preserve cherished state services by increasing taxes on the richest 2 percent of (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
