For the social sciences, neoliberalism describes much of the structural changes in global economics since the international, political and economic turbulence of the 1970s. Neoliberalism has shaped international power dynamics during the decline of capitalism’s “golden age” after World War II. Many social scientists are asking whether the 2008 economic and financial crisis marked a transition from the neoliberalism of the 1980s to a post-neoliberal era.

Although there is a general sense of what neoliberalism, or “neoliberal globalization,” is and how it works, there is no agreement on what these terms actually mean. Technological developments have probably also helped the US to become a model neoliberal state. NASA Created The Hockey Stick By Hiding And Altering Data.

His blog, Raging Bull-Shit, is a modest attempt to challenge some of the wishful thinking and scrub away the lathers of soft soap peddled by our political and business leaders and their loyal mainstream media. “I think of globalisation as a light which shines brighter and brighter on a few people, and the rest are in darkness, wiped out” – Arundhati Roy On February 12th of this year, the presidents of Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Chile signed an agreement to eliminate tariffs on 92 percent of trade among their countries. The agreement is seen as vital in the economic integration of the four fastest-growing economies in Latin America, and a significant advance in their goal of working as a united trade partner with Asia.

For those working at Duke University’s Ward Lab, all specialists in predicting conflict, the year looks like a betting sheet, full of predictions that worked and others that didn’t pan out. When the lab put out their semiannual predictions in July, they gave Paraguay a 97 percent chance of insurgency, largely based on reports of Marxist rebels. The next month, guerrilla campaigns intensified, proving out the prediction. According to Ward Lab’s staff, the purpose of the project isn’t to make predictions but to test theories.
