Essays The Marketing Of Neo-Liberal Economics through the Ages: The 'Nobel Prize' in Economics [Archive] - iTulip.com This article was first published on AlterNet ( It’s Nobel Prize season again. News reports are coming out each day sharing the name of the illustrious winner of the various categories — Science, Literature, etc. But there’s one of the prizes that’s a little different. Well, that’s putting it lightly… you see, the Nobel Prize in Economics is not a real Nobel. It wasn’t created by Alfred Nobel. It’s not even called a “Nobel Prize,” no matter what the press reports say.
Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership This article is about the regulation and trade agreement. For the chemical compound abbreviated as TTIP, see Titanium isopropoxide. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a proposed free trade agreement between the European Union and the United States, with the aim of promoting multilateral economic growth. The American government considers the TTIP a companion agreement to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). After a proposed draft was leaked in March 2014, the European Commission launched a public consultation on a limited set of clauses and in January 2015 published parts of an overview. If an agreement is to be made, it is not expected to be finalized before 2016. European Citizens' Initiative against TTIP and CETA, named "Stop TTIP", has been established, acquiring over 3.2 million signatures within a year. Background
Americas Collections Blog As a historian I get very excited about old letters, diaries, account books and inventories – but once in a while there are other ‘records’ that trump almost everything else. I had one of those moments this week when I returned to George Washington’s Mount Vernon. Over the past six years I have been many times to Washington’s estate in Virginia (just south of Washington DC) – first to research my book Founding Gardeners and then to give talks about the book. By now I go there to see the changes in the gardens (of which there are many, such as the fabulous restoration of the Upper Garden) and to meet my friend Dean Norton who is the Director of Horticulture there. Dean always makes a huge effort to entertain me – for example, by taking me out on the Potomac in a boat or letting me drive around the estate with a gator [A John Deere utility vehicle, not a reptile - ed.]. Last Wednesday’s visit, however, was one of the most memorable.
This is What ProPublica is Now Covering Today is the first day of Donald Trump’s presidency. Like many in journalism, we’ve been thinking hard these past few months about where and how we should focus our newsroom. Our work remains the same as when we started nine years ago: hard-hitting, rigorous journalism that exposes wrongdoing and injustices — and that can bring change. But we’re going to do it by adding new areas to tackle. We’re going to be digging deep into the most pressing issues involving our country and our new president. Why are we sharing what we’re working on?
Collective narcissism Collective narcissism (or group narcissism) is a type of narcissism where an individual has an inflated self-love of his or her own ingroup, where an "ingroup" is a group in which an individual is personally involved. While the classic definition of narcissism focuses on the individual, collective narcissism asserts that one can have a similar excessively high opinion of a group, and that a group can function as a narcissistic entity. Collective narcissism is related to ethnocentrism; however, ethnocentrism primarily focuses on self-centeredness at an ethnic or cultural level, while collective narcissism is extended to any type of ingroup, beyond just cultures and ethnicities. Some theorists believe group-level narcissism to be an extension of individual narcissism, though others believe the two to be independent of each other. Development of the concept Characteristics Collective vs. individual

The Rand Corporation: The Think Tank That Controls America By Alex Abella If you think the Internet came out of Silicon Valley, that NASA planned the first satellite to orbit Earth, or that IBM created the modern computer—think again. Each one of these breakthroughs was conceived at RAND, a shadowy think tank in Santa Monica, California. The Intimidation Factor Rand rose out of the ashes of World War II. Phillip H. Duran / Eaglehouse Publications "Eight Indigenous Prophecies" Phillip H. Duran Why did American Indian tribes survive the Indian wars and genocide, the unacknowledged American holocaust? The significance of prophecies emerges when we ask what the immigrants from Europe lost by scorning Indigenous knowledge and wisdom that were already here on Turtle Island.
