Grexit: The Staggering Cost Of Central Bank Dependence

Grexit: The Staggering Cost Of Central Bank Dependence | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The ECB has decided to maintain its current level of emergency liquidity to Greece (ECB 2015).

Anyway, it raises a host of unpleasant questions about …

Paul Mason and Joseph Stiglitz on the Day a democratic Europe died | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
That concern for popular legitimacy is incompatible with the politics of the eurozone, which was never a very democratic project. Most of its members’ governments did not seek their people’s approval to turn over their monetary sovereignty to the ECB. When Sweden’s did, Swedes said no. They understood that unemployment would rise if the country’s …

Can a multitude of small projects save the world? | P2P Foundation

Can a multitude of small projects save the world? | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

This is where dissensus and the deliberate encouragement of the eccentric, the improbable and the rejected come into their own. We are far past the point at which an organized, society-wide program to deal with the crisis of industrial civilization is possible – as the Hirsch report pointed out five years ago, that had to start twenty years before the peak of petroleum production, which puts that hope a good quarter century into the realm of might-have-beens – and even if the option still existed, the political will to make it happen simply isn’t there. That means that aiming for flexible ad hoc responses cobbled together out of whatever resources come to hand is probably the best option we’ve got. Focusing on those possibilities that can be done on a shoestring, and maximizing the total number of these that get tested in the immediate future, is therefore a crucially important strategy right now. Even if most of those efforts fail, this approach will likely yield the largest number of useful options to mitigate the crisis in the short run and manage some degree of recovery later on.

Vrijdag 26 juni is het feest bij Moyee Coffee in B.Amsterdam. De startup in eerlijke koffie heeft zijn eerste first roast uit Kaffa, Ethiopië naar Nederland gehaald. Dat beschouwt het als een mijlpaal: als eerste koffie-importeur ter wereld laat Moyee bonen branden in het land van herkomst. Dat levert de ondernemers daar een hogere opbrengst op dan de export van rauwe bonen.
