Inclusive Monetary Fund by Subhomoy Bhattacharjee April 08 2013 The India Express

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has decided that country surveillance will now include issues of job creation and inclusive growth. Considering that 'big government' usually runs to perdition spouting this mantra it is difficult to figure out how the subsequent IMF led clean up will do any better, if it is also locked in the same frame of reference.

The Looting Of America

This is probably the bluntest and most compact overview of the econo-mafioso thuggery that has been going on at an ever accelerating rate since Reagan, which makes the BHO admin the current pinnacle with its looting of US infrastructure including SS, Medicare, public education, and much more. In many ways it is the bringing back home the practices accomplished by the World Bank and the IMF in looting "developing countries."

Comparing Unemployment During the Great Depression and the Great Recession by William K. Black, NEP, UMKC April 5th

(I have put a copy of the conclusion at the beginnning to give an immediate idea where this article is going at the outset. Tadit )

When a Nation gives up its sovereign currency it puts its sovereignty at risk. It becomes subject to the attacks of the bond vigilantes and can be forced into situations in which it can offer its young people so little opportunity that it forces many of its best and brightest to flee the Nation.

How the World Bank Undermines Its Own Development Goals ByPeter Bosshard , International Rivers 03/18/2013

The World Bank’s International Development Association (IDA) is the most important source of development finance for the world’s poorest countries. A new round of finance is supposed to support goals such as inclusive growth, gender equity, and climate resilience. With an ill-devised proposal to increase IDA support for large infrastructure projects, including new mega-dams on the Congo and Zambezi rivers, the World Bank risks undermining these noble goals.

Review of Peter Linebaugh's The Magna Carta Manifesto

The Magna Carta Manifesto

Cyprus is paying a painful price for bowing to international capital By Tim Jones New Statesman, 25 March 2013

Being controlled by global financial interests does not benefit ordinary people, their economy or democracy, writes the Jubilee Debt Campaign's Tim Jones. A small country is being brought to its knees by a huge banking system which has recklessly been lent money from overseas. Controls on money leaving the country have had to be introduced. The size of the debts owed mean there is no way the government can simply bailout the banks. For Cyprus in 2013 read also Iceland in 2008.

Cyprus has finally killed myth that the EMU is benign By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard UK Telegraph 27 Mar 2013

The punishment regime imposed on Cyprus is a trick against everybody involved in this squalid saga, against the Cypriot people and the German people, against savers and creditors. All are being deceived. If Cyprus tries to claw back competitiveness with an 'internal devaluation', it will drive unemployment to Greek levels (27pc) and cause the economy to contract so fast that the debt ratio explodes. It is not a bail-out. There is no debt relief for the state of Cyprus.
