The financial Ike

posted by F Espinoza | ... Fiscal paradises are prospering; people are suffering. Is this how humanity’s well-being can be guaranteed? more...  0 Comments


Doug Cupertino | The Federal Reserve System bail-out of AIG means more of the same: more diversion of working people’s tax money to speculation and Wall Street profiteering and away from working people’s welfare. Fed takeover of AIG means more of the same Wall Street control and management. Time for putting working people’s welfare first, and real, socialist change. more...  0 Comments

Welfare State and Inner Security

Heinz Jurgen Dahme | The punitive side of welfare state reform is read as a success. From a welfare state perspective, problerms result because firstly there is not enough work and secondly those integrated in work can oftern hardly live from that. Massive exclusion and precariousness exist everywhere in Europe today. Workfare policy supplements supply-side policy with an activating political-social model by means of flexicurity. more...  0 Comments

The guaranteed minimum income will be something you get as a citizen, something you can depend on." more...  0 Comments
