Stark warning from ex Bank of England regulator 19th November 2015 In an important speech given at the Finance Watch conference in Brussels on Tuesday, Robert Jenkins — a former member of the Bank of England’s financial policy committee — highlighted the dangers of a two-tier justice system in which senior bankers are effectively ‘above the law’. He also said that 47 banking scandals and the feeble nature of most post-crisis financial reforms suggest that governments around the world would be ill-advised to cave in to the demands of bankers and finance sector lobbyists seeking a return to ‘business as usual’ When timidity triumphs Darwin's Wedge & Dumb Competition “Competition creates efficiency,” is preached as if it were a law of nature.

Analysing the Collapse of the Global Debt Bubble I’ve attended two conferences in two days where both the power and the impotence of the European Central Bank (EBC) have been on vivid display. Its political power is considerable, both in form and in substance. At both seminars, the ECB speaker—ECB Board member Peter Praet at the first, and ECB President Mario Draghi at the second—spoke first, and then left. In form, the ECB has no need to defend its policies because it is unimpeachable in its execution of them. Platform for Art, Culture and the Public Domain ‘…the unfathomable distance between the individual and the geopolitical.’ – Firat Oruc This essay is an exploration of thoughts following an artistic event that happened a year ago, specifically in terms of how it deploys its own forms, intensities and energies that are essentially ungraspable by language.

Stagnation, both political and economic, has been the hallmark of a country where little has changed for decades, even as power has rotated between the established parties of left and right. Until now. This year’s presidential election, the most exciting in living memory, promises an upheaval. The Socialist and Republican parties, which have held power since the founding of the Fifth Republic in 1958, could be eliminated in the first round of a presidential ballot on April 23rd. Nonviolent Communication Basics (2000) The Basics of Nonviolent Communication with Marshall Rosenberg, Phd, is a recorded presentation of a 1-day workshop held in San Francisco, CA in April 2000. "The purpose of Nonviolent Communication is to help you learn what you already know how to do... but forget ... because we've been educated to forget." In this video, Marshall Rosenberg shares a philosophy that challenges the current paradigm of war that contributes to violence in relationships, society, and to our planet. "Even though we could be playing the game, 'Make Life Wonderful,' we have been educated to play another game: 'Who's Right?'" Marshall presents ways of interacting with each other in authentic, effective, and powerful ways so that the way we interact in our most personal relationships is aligned with our values for the change we want to see in the world.
Panarchy Panarchy What is Panarchy? Panarchy is a conceptual framework to account for the dual, and seemingly contradictory, characteristics of all complex systems – stability and change.
