L’économie trafiquante, paradigme de la mondialisation. Dater — symboliquement — le coup d’envoi de la mondialisation économique et financière au 15 août 1971 n’est pas seulement un exercice de style.

L’économie trafiquante, paradigme de la mondialisation

Le Président américain Richard Nixon n’avait certes pas conscience, ni personne d’autre à l’époque, des conséquences et des développements qu’entraînerait sa décision de suspendre la convertibilité du dollar en or. Il n’empêche que cette initiative a fait exploser l’ordre politique et juridique international d’après-guerre, qui reposait sur le contrôle des économies par l’encadrement des monnaies et de la finance. Cet ordre nécessitait l’intervention des États comme régulateurs économiques, sociaux et financiers, dans le cadre d’une coopération internationale destinée à préserver les équilibres mondiaux.

En fait, les grandes puissances ne s’attaquent qu’aux petits fraudeurs du fisc, mais surtout pas aux magouilles des multinationales. Depuis quelques semaines, les médias du monde entier font leurs gros titres sur la mort des paradis fiscaux. Scandaleux : l'impôt des groupes privés du CAC 40 n'est que de 3,3% !

Aid in reverse: How poor countries develop rich countries. The idea of international development aid lies at the heart of a tremendously successful PR campaign.

Aid in reverse: How poor countries develop rich countries

The narrative we have been sold claims that aid has been effective at reducing global poverty. Here I will argue that there are three problems with this narrative. First, poverty is not disappearing, despite what we have been told to believe. Second, aid disbursements from rich countries to poor countries are dwarfed by wealth flows that run in the other direction, to the point where poor countries are effectively developing rich countries.

So far, only small national samples were studied and there was no appropriate methodology to assess control globally. We present the first investigation of the architecture of the international ownership network, along with the computation of the control held by each global player. Cost of War to the United States.

I can't really comment in any informed way on societies in the East, except to point to the Chinese slave workers who produce mountains of plastic crap for Western nations to use and then dump in the ground and oceans; the Middle East's role as a bombing target, 'terrorist' recruiting ground and civil war factory for Western warmongers, and South East Asia and Africa as a block of new 'nations' born out of the 'white man's burden' to civilize their people via brutal colonization and then grant them 'independence' in the form of never-ending debt to Western banks.

Psychopaths in Power and the Imminent Collapse of Global Society (It's all your fault!)

In the West, on the other hand, where I live, I can say with confidence that our modern society, its political and social conventions, customs and morality, has passed its expiry date and is well and truly moribund. Leading the cast in this tragicomedy (heavy on the tragi) we find our psychopathic leaders and their media whores trying extra hard to convince us that everything is just fine.

The Iron Fist Behind the Invisible Hand

Manorialism, commonly, is recognized to have been founded by robbery and usurpation; a ruling class established itself by force, and then compelled the peasantry to work for the profit of their lords. CounterSpill. Observatoire des inégalités. 18 juillet 2006 - L’abolition des droits de succession, qui favorise les rentiers au détriment du travail, est contraire à l’esprit même du capitalisme.

Entretien avec Philippe Frémeaux, directeur d’Alternatives Economiques (extrait d’une chronique de France Musique). Warren Buffet, deuxième fortune mondiale, vient de décider, de donner 85 % de sa fortune, à des fondations caritatives, et notamment à la fondation Bill et Melinda Gates, qui finance la recherche médicale et la délivrance de médicaments au profit des populations du tiers monde. Comment analyser ce renouveau de la charité privée ? Warren Buffet, fondateur de la société d’investissements Bershire Hataway, partage avec Bill Gates, le fondateur de Microsoft, la conviction qu’il est légitime, pour un individu, d’accumuler une immense fortune si celle-ci provient de sa contribution à la création de richesses.

Odious debt. In international law, odious debt, also known as illegitimate debt, is a legal theory that holds that the national debt incurred by a regime for purposes that do not serve the best interests of the nation, should not be enforceable. Such debts are, thus, considered by this doctrine to be personal debts of the regime that incurred them and not debts of the state.

In some respects, the concept is analogous to the invalidity of contracts signed under coercion. Destructive World Bank projects around the world. The World Bank has a long history of funding projects that are destructive to the environment and undermine human rights, investing in projects regardless of their devastating impacts both on local populations and on our planet. The case studies selected here demonstrate the range of projects (both geographically, and by type) that the Bank invests in, but they are by no means a definitive list. The World Bank has provided more than $6.7 billion in financing for these projects alone.

Category:Ethically disputed business practices. None of the world’s top industries would be profitable if they paid for the natural capital they use. The notion of “externalities” has become familiar in environmental circles. It refers to costs imposed by businesses that are not paid for by those businesses.

For instance, industrial processes can put pollutants in the air that increase public health costs, but the public, not the polluting businesses, picks up the tab. In this way, businesses privatize profits and publicize costs. Corporatism Is Not Capitalism: 7 Things About The Monolithic Predator Corporations That Dominate Our Economy That Every American Should Know.

William Black: Why aren’t the honest bankers demanding prosecutions of their dishonest rivals? By William Black, a former Federal banking regulator and Associate Professor of Law and Economics at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Cross posted from New Economic Perspectives. This is the second column in a series responding to Stephen Moore’s central assaults on regulation and the prosecution of the elite white-collar criminals who cause our recurrent, intensifying financial crises.

Study finds capitalist network of companies runs the world [with list] A recent study conducted by researchers from Zurich found that a ‘super entity’ of 147 companies controls 40% of the entire corporate network. The Evils of Unregulated Capitalism. Just a few years ago, a powerful ideology - the belief in free and unfettered markets - brought the world to the brink of ruin. Even in its hey-day, from the early 1980s until 2007, US-style deregulated capitalism brought greater material well-being only to the very richest in the richest country of the world. Indeed, over the course of this ideology's 30-year ascendance, most Americans saw their incomes decline or stagnate year after year.

Moreover, output growth in the United States was not economically sustainable. High Inequality Results in More US Deaths than Tobacco, Car Crashes and Guns Combined. In 2009, the British Medical Journal (BMJ) published a study that revealed what seems to be a shocking truth: those who live in societies with a higher level of income inequality are at a greater risk for premature death. Here in the United States, our high level of income inequality corresponds with 883, 914 unnecessary deaths each year. More specifically, the report concluded that if we had an income distribution more like that of the Netherlands, Germany, France, Switzerland — or eleven other wealthy countries — every year, about one in three deaths in the US could be avoided.
