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.

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.

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.

Corporatism Is Not Capitalism: 7 Things About The Monolithic Predator Corporations That Dominate Our Economy That Every American Should Know. Right now, there is a lot of talk about the evils of “capitalism”. But it is not really accurate to say that we live in a capitalist system.

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.
