Chávez Won't Go By Farooque Chowdhury

Chávez Won't Go By Farooque Chowdhury | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Chávez won't go. Class conflict ridden history shall not allow Chávez to go. He is part of history, part of people struggling against dispossession, exploitation and poverty, part of people struggling for democracy and dignity. “Those who die for life, can't be called dead,” said Nicolas Maduro, the Venezuelan vice-president.  This makes Chávez live for ever among the people.

​Еврокомиссия и Греция продолжают поиски выхода из кризиса | Global politics | Scoop.it
Заместитель председателя Еврокомиссии Валдис Домбровскис заявил, что двери для переговоров между кредиторами и Грецией по-прежнему открыты. 1 июля завершилась европейская программа финансовой поддержки и истёк срок очередной выплаты по кредитам. Афины не смогли перечислить МВФ €1,6 млрд: стране не хватает средств на финансирование своих внешних и внутренних обязательств, а партнёры по ЕС требуют новых жёстких реформ в обмен на экономическую помощь. Подробнее — корреспондент RT Питер Оливер.

Greece and Spain helped postwar Germany recover. Spot the difference | Nick Dearden

Greece and Spain helped postwar Germany recover. Spot the difference  | Nick Dearden | Global politics | Scoop.it
Nick Dearden: Sixty years ago, half of German war debts were cancelled to build its economy. Yet today, debt is destroying those creditors
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Perhaps the most innovative feature of the London agreement was a clause that said West Germany should only pay for debts out of its trade surplus, and any repayments were limited to 3% of exports earnings every year. This meant those countries that were owed debt had to buy West German exports in order to be paid. It meant West Germany would only pay from genuine earnings, without recourse to new loans. And it meant Germany's creditors had an interest in the country growing and its economy thriving.

 The Care and Feeding of a Financial Black Hole    :   Information Clearing House - ICH By Dmitry Orlov

 The Care and Feeding of a Financial Black Hole    :   Information Clearing House - ICH By Dmitry Orlov | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

 It's not a real black hole that's made up of incredibly dense matter—so dense that its gravitational field traps even light. It's a fake black hole, made up of everyone's combined greed. It has greed at its core, and fear all around it, and it sustains itself by feeding on fear. If it can continue sucking in people, families and entire countries, it can keep the greed at its core alive, but if it can't, then the greed will also turn to fear, and it will shrivel up and die. And I hope that when it dies all of its brain-damaged puppets will snap out of it, realize how deluded they have been, and go find something useful to do—farm sheep, grow vegetables, dig for clams...

Greek debt crisis is the Iraq War of finance

Greek debt crisis is the Iraq War of finance | Global politics | Scoop.it
Guardians of financial stability are deliberately provoking a bank run and endangering Europe's system in their zeal to force Greece to its knees
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Rarely in modern times have we witnessed such a display of petulance and bad judgment by those supposed to be in charge of global financial stability, and by those who set the tone for the Western world.

The spectacle is astonishing. The European Central Bank, the EMU bail-out fund, and the International Monetary Fund, among others, are lashing out in fury against an elected government that refuses to do what it is told. They entirely duck their own responsibility for five years of policy blunders that have led to this impasse.
