Economist Richard Wolff on Roots of Greek Crisis, Debt Relief & Rise of Anti-Capitalism in Europe

Economist Richard Wolff on Roots of Greek Crisis, Debt Relief & Rise of Anti-Capitalism in Europe | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
As Greek voters reject further budget cuts and tax hikes in exchange for a rescue package from European creditors, who is to blame for the debt crisis embroiling Greece? Is Germany trying to crush Greece to set an example? Will Greece leave the eurozone? What does this mean for the global economy? We speak to Richard Wolff, emeritus professor of economics at University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and visiting professor at New School University. He’s the author of several books, including, most re
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Worth your time to hear this and understand a bit more of what is going on with Greece and how what is going on there impacts the rest of us. Look father into the role the 2008 bank fails helped bring this all on….It was not just the regular Greek worker or retiree that caused this problem as you will see if your research a bit.

Deliberate destruction and looting threaten antiquities. Is this the rule or the exception through history? Why destroy culture?
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

The attacks on historical sites in the middle east and now Egypt are a sad destruction of knowledge and our link to access communications from people of our past. Yes, it is our history there as well as theirs. Many of the stories of the Jews, the Christians and the Muslims and those that predate all those faiths lay in the dust and artifacts of those lands. Here is a story of how often and why this has happened. This is an interesting read.

A Socialist Surge in the U.S.? Bernie Sanders Draws Record Crowds, Praises Greek Anti-Austerity Vote

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Wow! Crowds from the mainstream…..66,000+in Portland and 6,000+ of them showed up to listen to Bernie! He is not like a Russian style socialist….He is democratic socialist much like Germany and other European…and even the USA during the years after the two world wars…. Here is an interesting discussion based on how too many governments and policy have been bought out by the huge collection of wealthy companies and people…. If you decide to support him you may need to see if you are registered in a manner that allows you to vote in your states democratic primary…  Independents, Democrats or Republicans sometimes can not vote other than in their party's State primary…..Some live where you can vote either way when you show up…I once registered democrat in one state I lived because that was were the main game was laid out in that state…then registered differently in other places for different reasons. You do have to be registered to vote in any election at all so at least register to do that…and then show up…Hopefully everyone will do their homework and not just count on corporate sponsored news to shape their decision.

Confederate memorials splashed with 'Black Lives Matter' slogan

Confederate memorials splashed with 'Black Lives Matter' slogan | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
The 'Black Lives Matter' movement and the controversy over commemoration of the Confederate Army converged Monday when activists spray painted the slogan on Confederate memorial in Baltimore.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

I think a better answer would be place a monument to a black hero close by in a manner that upstages this monument. Or push to have large bushes hide it. Not sure showing the angry, reactive side to a controversy is the best answer for change.
