Democracy in a state of emergency: Greece, the EU and the Eurozone debt crisis

Democracy in a state of emergency: Greece, the EU and the Eurozone debt crisis | The Big Picture | Scoop.it

Good article in Open Democracy on how this European Union is using the sovereign debt crisis as an excuse to shed of the last illusions of it being a democratic and social project for its citizens.

Future money - James Robertson

Future money - James Robertson | The Big Picture | Scoop.it

"... we have to make the money system work in ways that will motivate everyone to "enable and conserve", so that we and other living species survive. Understanding the need to design our money system to achieve that purpose amounts to a "Copernican revolution"

 

Good interview in Eurozine with one of the grandfather's of alternative economics, James Robertson, on the need for radical currency reform. His book "Future Money" should be mandatory bed-time reading for Mr Draghi.
