Apple’s rotten core 

2011-10-09_apple-s_rotten_coreNone of the eulogies for Steve Jobs are likely to have much to say about the people who made his fortune writes Liam Mac Uaid. Apple has pioneered an aggressive anti-union strategy both in the Chinese factories that manufacture its gadgets and the Apple stores that sell them. The company’s story is more one of hyper-exploitation than affable geekery.

Why Pakistan says adieu to IMF program?

by Abdul Khaliq

2011-10-02_Abdul_KhaliqExisting $11.3 billion Stand By Agreement (SBA) is 8th program with IMF, going to be ended on a bitter note.
Having kept the IMF at arm’s length for over a year now is anything but good news.

The government of Pakistan has taken the latest decision to say ‘adieu’ to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) at least for the time being, after the existing $11.3 billion Stand By Arrangement (SBA) program, is to be ended on 30 September 2011.This is the 8th SBA program with the IMF to conclude on an unsuccessful note, since 1950 when Pakistan joined the Fund. Out of these eight programs six were contracted with democratic governments.

Break the chains of debt!

2011-09-26_week_of_global_actionThe system of debt continues to devastate the lives of people around the world. People in the South face the daily impacts and consequences of the financial indebtedness of their countries, which far from having been "relieved" is growing in step with the crisis and the pursuit of extraordinary profits by the most concentrated forms of capital. They continue also to bear the burden of the unpaid historical, social, ecological, and climate debts which are increasing as well to the rhythm of false solutions to the global crisis.

Anticapitalism and environmentalism as a political alternative

by Esther Vivas

2011-09-25-esther_vivasWe cannot analyse the global ecological crisis separately from the crisis in which we are immersed or the critique of the economic model that has led us into it.

The starting point for today’s debate is to note that humanity is in a global ecological crisis that is an intrinsic part of the systemic crisis of capitalism. And one of the differences from past economic crises, from that of the 1970s or the crash of 1929, is precisely its ecological aspect.

Greece is facing an economic and social disaster, the result of its so-called rescue by the “troika” of the EU, the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank. Greece must change course to avoid a grim future for its people: it must default on its debt and exit the eurozone.
