What's New: State of Power 2017
| February 21, 2017
This sixth annual State of Power report examines the cultural processes that are used by corporations, military and privileged elites to make their power seem 'natural' and 'irreversible'. It also explores how social movements can harness creativity, art and cultural forces to resist and to build lasting social and ecological transformation.
Bullet #1371: Trump's Economic Policies Are No Answer To Our Problems
by Marty Hart-Landsberg | February 20, 2017
President Trump has singled out unfair international trading relationships as a major cause of U.S. worker hardship. And he has promised to take decisive action to change those relationships by pressuring foreign governments to rework their trade agreements with the U.S. and change their economic policies. While international economic dynamics have indeed worked to the disadvantage of many U.S. workers, Trump's framing of the problem is highly misleading and his promised responses are unlikely to do much, if anything, to improve majority working and living conditions.
LeftStreamed: Global Intern Strike!
February 19, 2017

What's New: A Call for Solidarity Against All 'Wars on ____'
by The Alitaptap Collective | February 18, 2017
Build walls. Make war. The siren call of hate rises to a seemingly unstoppable beat. As we entered a new year, we looked with increasing concern at events in the Philippines. As of January 2017, over 7,000 were killed in a ‘War on Drugs’ that is no less than a war on the poor - many too destitute to even bury their own dead.
What's New: Of productivity in France and in Germany
by Thomas Piketty | February 18, 2017
At the start of 2017, with the elections in France in the Spring and then in Germany in the Autumn, it may prove useful to return to one of the fundamental issues which plagues discussion at European level, that is the alleged economic asymmetry between Germany with its reputation as prosperous and France which is described as on the decline.
What's New: A letter from North America – Trump and After
by Ernie Tate | February 17, 2017
Humanity has certainly entered an alarmingly dangerous time and we should all be fearful for the future, but not only because of the Trump ascendancy and the rise of hard right around the globe but because of how the U.S. has been arming itself over the past period. In his last defense budget, for example, Obama, without much public notice being taken of it, assigned $1.2-trillion to 'improve' their nuclear weapons and missile system, an unimaginable amount by any standard.
What's New: Strikes?
by Doug Henwood | February 17, 2017
The strike -- labor’s most powerful weapon against capital, except maybe sabotage--is disappearing even more rapidly than unions, which is saying a lot. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported this morning that there were 15 work stoppages involving 1,000 or more workers in 2016. That’s 1 above the average of the past five years, and down 96 per cent from the average of the late 1940 and 1950s.
