Occupational health and safety from communist to capitalist structures. (1/19)

This article focuses on individual effects of the transformation from communist to capitalist structures in the system of occupational health and safety (OHS). Despite basic similarities among the communist nations the systems of OHS differed immensely. The political changes during transformation additionally contributed to varying opportunities for the development of OHS systems. Changes affecting the living and working conditions are significant and are demonstrated by the development of new work structures and work biographies. This is reflected in changed attitudes to demands and contents of work. No differences, however, were found between the employed and unemployed when asked about these issues. Conclusions for OHS in postcommunist states are drawn.  (+info)

Bulgarian population in transitional period. (2/19)

In the transition period from a communist to market-oriented economy, Bulgaria faces several public health challenges. One of them is the decline in population (estimated fall from current 8.25 million to around 6 million in 2045), mainly due to emigration and pronounced fall in fertility. Infant mortality is still relatively high (over 15/1,000 live births), and the incidence of tuberculosis is on the rise. Total mortality shows a steady upward trend from 12.1/1,000 in 1990 to 14.3/1,000 in 1998. Trends in ischemic heart disease are comparable to those in other Central and Eastern European countries, but stroke mortality is notably higher. This calls for detailed epidemiological studies of risk factors, such as salt consumption, as well as preventive programs for detection and control of high blood pressure. The problems of smoking and alcohol abuse should be addressed by a coordinated public health and legal measures.  (+info)

Policy without politics: the limits of social engineering. (3/19)

The extent of coverage provided by a country's health services is directly related to the level of development of that country's democratic process (and its power relations). The United States is the only developed country whose government does not guarantee access to health care for its citizens. It is also the developed country with the least representative and most insufficient democratic institutions, owing to the constitutional framework of the political system, the privatization of the electoral process, and the enormous power of corporate interests in both the media and the political process. As international experience shows, without a strong labor-based movement willing to be radical in its protests, a universal health care program will never be accepted by the US establishment.  (+info)

Interrelationships between the precautionary principle, prediction strategies, and sustainable use of the planet. (4/19)

In this article, I examine the relationships between new concepts of human activity in the environment and several prevention strategies used to plot a course toward sustainable use. Natural capitalism and industrial ecology are relatively new concepts that provide a framework for environmental management. Although the precautionary principle puts into policy a determination to prevent environmental damage before it occurs, natural capitalism and industrial ecology go beyond the prevention of environmental damage to the optimization of environmental interactions. The risk assessment tools necessary for preventive management continue to be essential. However, additional tools are needed to go beyond prevention to optimization. A holistic, scientific approach to the human place within the environment is needed, including both interdisciplinary and large-scale research.  (+info)

China's public health-care system: facing the challenges. (5/19)

The severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) crisis in China revealed not only the failures of the Chinese health-care system but also some fundamental structural deficiencies. A decentralized and fragmented health system, such as the one found in China, is not well-suited to making a rapid and coordinated response to public health emergencies. The commercial orientation of the health sector on the supply-side and lack of health insurance coverage on the demand-side further exacerbate the problems of the under-provision of public services, such as health surveillance and preventive care. For the past 25 years, the Chinese Government has kept economic development at the top of the policy agenda at the expense of public health, especially in terms of access to health care for the 800 million people living in rural areas. A significant increase in government investment in the public health infrastructure, though long overdue, is not sufficient to solve the problems of the health-care system. China needs to reorganize its public health system by strengthening both the vertical and horizontal connections between its various public health organizations. China's recent policy of establishing a matching-fund financed rural health insurance system presents an exciting opportunity to improve people's access to health care.  (+info)

A message to friends of social insurance: wake up! (6/19)

Theodore Marmor and Jerry Mashaw effectively present the case for social insurance as a necessary component of capitalism. They understate the severity of the fiscal pressures to which Social Security and Medicare will be subject. Projected cost increases are too large to be met entirely by tax increases that the American public is likely to tolerate. Those who are devoted to social insurance need to design the changes, instead of leaving the job to opponents of principles of social insurance, who will take the financial problems as an excuse to scuttle Social Security and Medicare.  (+info)

Asbestos-related disease in South Africa: the social production of an invisible epidemic. (7/19)

South Africa was the third largest exporter of asbestos in the world for more than a century. As a consequence of particularly exploitative social conditions, former workers and residents of mining regions suffered--and continue to suffer--from a serious yet still largely undocumented burden of asbestos-related disease. This epidemic has been invisible both internationally and inside South Africa. We examined the work environment, labor policies, and occupational-health framework of the asbestos industry in South Africa during the 20th century. In a changing local context where the majority of workers were increasingly disenfranchised, unorganized, excluded from skilled work, and predominantly rural, mining operations of the asbestos industry not only exposed workers to high levels of asbestos but also contaminated the environment extensively.  (+info)

Factors influencing consumer dietary health preventative behaviours. (8/19)

BACKGROUND: The deterioration of the health status of the Romanian population during the economic transition from a centrally planned to a free market economy has been linked to lifestyles factors (e.g. diet) regarded as a main determinants of the disparity in life expectancy between Eastern and Western Europe. Reforms in the health care system in this transition economy aim to focus on preventive action. The purpose of this study was to identify the factors that impact on the individual decision to engage in Dietary Health Preventive Behaviour (DHPB) and investigate their influence in the context of an adapted health cognition model. METHODS: A population-based study recruited 485 adult respondents using random route sampling and face-to-face administered questionnaires. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: Respondents' health motivation, beliefs that diet can prevent disease, knowledge about nutrition, level of education attainment and age have a positive influence on DHPB. Perceived barriers to healthy eating have a negative impact on alcohol moderation. The information acquisition behaviour (frequency of reading food labels) is negatively predicted by age and positively predicted by health motivation, education, self-reported knowledge about nutrition and household financial status. A significant segment of respondents believe they are not susceptible to the elicited diseases. Health promotion strategies should aim to change the judgments of health risk. CONCLUSION: The adaptation of the Health Belief Model and the Theory of Health Preventive Behaviour represents a valid framework of predicting DHPB. The negative sign of perceived threat of disease on DHPB may suggest that, under an income constraint, consumers tend to trade off long-term health benefits for short-term benefits. This cautions against the use of negative messages in public health campaigns. Raising the awareness of diet-disease relationships, knowledge about nutrition (particularly sources and risks associated with dietary fat and cholesterol) may induce people to adopt preventive dietary habits.  (+info)

Why is the reparations movement in the Anglophone Caribbean not putting capitalism on trial in its campaign to force British imperialism to provide financial compensation for its industrial and agricultural capitalists enslavement of Africans?

Are the advocates of reparations truly convinced that British imperialisms payment of financial compensation for the enslavement of Africans would end the economic marginalization of the labouring classes who are toiling under capitalist regimes throughout the region?

The future of capitalism is not necessarily democratic. Authoritarian capitalism is gaining foothold not only in non-democratic states, such as China, but even in countries with strong liberal institutions. From Greece to the US, an increasing number of countries show its symptoms. We need to look beyond the façade of the most visible political manoeuvres in order to understand how economic and political disciplining of citizens to create decent capitalist subjects can be combined into a political economic model that ensures accelerated capital accumulation through increased political repression.. Hungary is one of the most striking cases. Hungarian elites followed the good governance blueprints of international institutions, implementing liberal political and economic reforms between 1990 and 2010. For long, the country was considered to be a frontrunner of the third wave of democratisation, yet now is considered to be a frontrunner of democratic backsliding. Orbáns political economic model ...
Theory of capitalism is all about capital formation as a measure of unhindered private initiative. Given all niceties of human disposition, phenomenon of individual initiatives for wealth creation gradually transforms itself into a mad race to become rich in surplus and disposable resource of wealth. And that is root-cause of capitalism being humbled and humiliated…
In fact, usury is still forbidden by the Catholic Church (CCC2269), but "liberals" insist on "separation of church and state," and "conservatives" insist on separation of church and economy (because morality and economics are somehow separate, and you "cant compel people to act morally").. Capitalism has come to entail state ownership of land and state-sponsored usury. If we were to eliminate usury (as Tucker Carlson has suggested) and property taxes, more people would own land, live off the land, and stay in their local communities. We would have a system more closely resembling subsidiarity than capitalism. We would have stronger families, communities, and piety (a lot of things Levin desires). However, GDP would be extremely low as such an economy is stable and not growing. Or at least, not growing quickly.. The goal of increasing GDP is simply at odds with strong families and private property. For GDP to increase, people need to buy and sell more products and services. People need money to ...
The global financial crisis has challenged many of our most authoritative economic ideologies and policies. After thirty years of reshaping the world to conform to the market, governments and societies are now calling for a retreat to a yet undefined new economic order. In order to provide a guide to what the twenty-first-century economy might look like, this book revisits the great project of Global Capitalism. What did it actually entail? How far did it go? What were its strengths and failings? By deconstructing its core ideas and examining its empirical record, can we gain clues about how to move forward after the crisis? Miguel Centeno and Joseph Cohen define capitalism as a historically-evolving and socially-constructed institution, rooted in three core economic activities trade, finance and marketing and identify the three key challenges that any new economic system will need to surmount inequality, governance, and environmental sustainability.. This accessible and engaging book will be ...

In the second edition of Zombie Politics and Culture in the Age of Casino Capitalism, Henry A. Giroux uses the metaphor of the zombie to highlight how America has embraced a machinery of social and civil death that chills any vestige of a robust democracy. He charts the various ways in which the political, corporate, and intellectual zombies that rule America embrace death-dealing institutions such as a bloated military, the punishing state, a form of predatory capitalism, and an authoritarian, death-driven set of policies that sanction torture, targeted assassinations, and a permanent war psychology. The author argues that government and corporate paranoia runs deep in America. While maintaining a massive security state, the ruling forces promote the internalization of their ideology, modes of governance, and policies by either seducing citizens with the decadent pleasures of a celebrity-loving consumer culture or by beating them into submission. Giroux calls for a systemic alternative to ...

This special report will cast a sceptical eye on state capitalism. It will raise doubts about the systems ability to capitalise on its successes when it wants to innovate rather than just catch up, and to correct itself if it takes a wrong turn. Managing the systems contradictions when the economy is growing rapidly is one thing; doing so when it hits a rough patch quite another. And state capitalism is plagued by cronyism and corruption.. But the report will also argue that state capitalism is the most formidable foe that liberal capitalism has faced so far. State capitalists are wrong to claim that they combine the best of both worlds, but they have learned how to avoid some of the pitfalls of earlier state-sponsored growth. And they are flourishing in the dynamic markets of the emerging world, which have been growing at an average of 5.5% a year against the rich worlds 1.6% over the past few years and are likely to account for half the worlds GDP by 2020.. State capitalism increasingly ...
Often when we are in a crisis we tend to view it as arising from current events or recent choices rather than from philosophical and political ideologies long buried in our psyche. Our present environmental crisis arises from such esoteric concepts as capitalism, alienation and apathy.. Adherents of capitalism as an economic system have embraced slavery, childhood labor, sweat shops, contaminated meats, prison labor, and air-pollution, destruction of forests and pollution of every major body of water in the continental USA. Capitalism is an artificial concept that zealots shroud in dogma, and decimate anyone who criticizes it as a heretic or communist.. If we are to successfully address the present climate crisis we must look at how we use natural assets. The driving force behind use of those resources is the capitalistic system, therefore we must look at the system also.. Early critics of capitalism greatly feared its exploitive tendencies. My argument is not to destroy capitalism but to ...
Unfortunately, the weakest section of the book consists of the three essays on the subject to which Mandel devoted the bulk of his intellectual energies: economics.. Jesús Albarracín and Pedro Montes ("Late Capitalism: Mandels Interpretation of Contemporary Capitalism") credit Mandel for integrating an understanding of capitalisms laws of motion with analyses of specific historical factors in his study of post-war capitalism. However, Albarracín and Montes fail to achieve such a synthesis in their own review of the same period.. While insisting that capitalisms inner logic plays a major role in shaping the long waves of growth and crises, the authors place primary emphasis on a series of postwar Keynesian state policies in their analyses of both the recovery of the 1940s through the 1960s and the crisis phase that began in the 1970s.. Thus, rather than genuinely integrating economic theory and economic history, they pay homage to the first and rely primarily on the latter. Their ...
Critiques of Weber can be put into three categories. First, Weber might have been wrong about the facts: modern capitalism might have arisen before Reformed Protestantism or in places where the Reformed influence was much smaller than Weber believed. Second, Weber might have misinterpreted Calvinism or, more narrowly, Puritanism; if Reformed teachings were not what Weber supposed, then logically they might not have supported capitalism. Third, Weber might have overstated capitalisms need for the ascetic practices produced by Reformed teachings.. On the first count, Weber has been criticized by many. During the early twentieth century, historians studied the timing of the emergence of capitalism and Calvinism in Europe. E. Fischoff (1944, 113) reviewed the literature and concluded that the "timing will show that Calvinism emerged later than capitalism where the latter became decisively powerful," suggesting no cause-and-effect relationship. Roland Bainton also suggests that the Reformed ...
Recasting Welfare Capitalism, employs a sophisticated and original theoretical approach to compare welfare states and political-economic adjustment in Germany and France. Mark Vail examines how and why institutional change takes place and what factors characterize economic evolution when moving from times of prosperity to more austere periods and back again. These respective evolutions involve interrelated changes in social and economic policies and are characterized by political relationships that are continuously renegotiated often in unpredictable ways. Covering the 1970s to the present, Vail analyzes social and economic reforms, including labor-policy, social-insurance, and antipoverty programs. He focuses on the tactics and actions of key political players and demolishes the stagnation argument that suggests that France and Germany have largely frozen political economies incapable of reform. The result is a compelling reconceptualization of change in both the welfare state and the broader ...

II) The Nature of the Current Crisis in Capitalism. The classical Marxist concept of capitalist crisis was based upon a system of competitive capitalism, in which a large number of small capitalists ere competing with one another on the basis of price. The basic contradiction of capitalism - that between the price of labor and its productivity - manifested itself at the level of the whole economy as a total production of goods produced by labor greater than the demand for the goods based on the wages paid to labor. This contradiction could be forestalled as a crisis by investment in production of machines which produce goods, but this only led to a greater productivity of labor and thereby a greater crisis. Periodically, this crisis led to a depression in which the weaker firms were either bought out or failed altogether and production was consolidated into fewer hands. Marxists argued that this would lead to succeedingly more severe crises leading to the eventual breakdown of capitalism. In ...

Globalizing capitalism and its new extremes -- rising prices and wealth inequalities -- has a remarkable historical parallel in the events of the 16th century. Should modern-day capitalists be guarding the Bastille?
Well, sauce for the goose, sauce for the gander. We can also look at all historical ways of building *capitalism* and consider what they brought, now cant we? And well get the same "this was not REAL" (capitalism, anarcho-capitalism, whatever). The biggest one is the theory that the Great Depression was "not real capitalism" despite coming up under the Republican Hoover and despite being the result of decades of entrenched capitalist interests in the United States. Compared to actual American Capitalism, some libertarian (and related) claims look a lot like a form of Trotskyism - "noble ideas and degradation" exactly! Ayn Rand as a new Trotsky, sounds fun.. There is also an analogy to the way Venezuelomania gave way to Venezuelomnesia on the other side. In libertarian/ancap circles Somalimania gave way to Somalimnesia. What happened there was the logical result of anarcho-capitalism - in the absence of a state, the group that could create the most united and coordinated force of coercion ...
What remains the same across all such forms - why they all deserve the label "capitalist" - is the exclusion of the mass of workers that produces the output and generates the profits from receiving and distributing that profit, and from generally participating democratically in enterprise decisions. Capitalism excludes workers from deciding what is produced, how it is produced, where it is produced and how profits are to be used and distributed. Democracy at Work is a critique ...
Workers actions over the past weeks have shown us how to transform feeble rank and file resistance into a fight for our own needs through a refusal to make more sacrifices for their profits. But it is not enough. From now on, we need to link the defence of the health of every worker to the perspective of a different society. We need a new social model which does not put production in conflict with human health. Never before has the contradiction between the collective health and well-being of humanity been in such stark contrast to the logic of profit. The virus that kills from within is capitalism. The only way we can combat this disease is by building the communist alternative to this system of exploitation and death. This means working to create a political instrument of working class struggle: the internationalist and revolutionary party.. We have always been committed to this task but today it is more important than ever, given that the situation is changing rapidly and time is of the ...
Moreover the industrial countries, which would normally be importers of agricultural produce, adopted policies of economic nationalism, and tried to make up for their own agricultural deficiencies by an extension of the land under cultivation for cereals, and through an increase in yields behind the shelter of customs barriers and subsidies. This practice extended also to countries with an industrialised agriculture (USA, Canada, Argentina). Under monopolistic pressure, the result was a regime of unreal farm prices, which rose to the level of the highest cost of production, and which weighed heavily on the purchasing power of the masses (this was true above all for wheat, an article of mass consumption).. For capitalism, the fact that the peasant economies had been completely integrated into the market meant that national markets could no longer be extended and so reached the point of absolute saturation. Although he still appeared to be an independent producer, the peasant was incorporated into ...

The crisis of world capitalism is unfolding relentlessly and with gathering speed. First came the financial crisis (the so-called credit crunch), but now the second phase has begun - the crisis of the real economy - and it is accelerating as each day goes by. This is leading to sharp changes in consciousness, rising working class militancy and the beginnings of polarisation within the labour movement itself.
Wolfgang Streeck has written extensively on comparative political economy and institutional theory. In this book he addresses some of the key issues in this field: the role of history in institutional analysis, the dynamics of slow institutional change, the limitations of rational design and economic-functionalist explanations of institutional stability, and the recurrent difficulties of restraining the effects of capitalism on social order.

Jomo Kwame Sundaram and Anis Chowdhury. Income and wealth inequality has increased in recent decades, but recognition of the role of economic liberalization and globalization in exacerbating inequality has never been so widespread. The guardians of global capitalism are nervous, yet little has been done to check, let alone reverse the underlying forces.. Global elite alarmed by growing inequality. The World Economic Forum (WEF) has described severe income inequality as the biggest risk facing the world. WEF founder Klaus Schwab has observed, "We have too large a disparity in the world; we need more inclusiveness… If we continue to have un-inclusive growth and we continue with the unemployment situation, particularly youth unemployment, our global society is not sustainable.". Christine Lagarde, IMF Managing Director, told political and business leaders at the WEF, "in far too many countries the benefits of growth are being enjoyed by far too few people. This is not a recipe for stability and ...

The mortality figures reflect a catastrophic decline in the social position of the working class resulting from the protracted decay of American capitalism.
In 1894, in the middle of the desperate decade that future generations would idiotically describe as the "Gay Nineties," William Dean Howells, Americas premier man of letters, returned to the attack on capitalism with his vision of a Utopia called Altruria. Once upon a time in Altruria, Howells wrote, there had been an "Accumulation [which] treated the proletariat like a deadly enemy...left their families to starve...sought every chance to reduce wages." These evils had been remedied in a single blow, at the ballot box. "All transportation was taken into the hands of the political government...which showed itself immaculately pure, compared with the Accumulation. The common ownership of mines necessarily followed, with an allotment of lands to anyone who wished to live by tilling the land, but not a foot of the land was remitted to private hands for purposes of selfish pleasure or the exclusion of any other from the landscape." Once the production of "fraudulent wares" had been eliminated, "one ...
Women around the world, regardless of their status, nationality, color, are at a constant state of war with the patriarchy, a war that has been raging since the Agricultural Revolution and that has its roots deeply embedded in property relations. Rapes are the by-products of that war, patriarchys trophies won in shameless battles. And,as long aswe would not acknowledge the fact that patriarchy today is facilitated and nurtured by capitalism, we would only misinterpret the power structure that perpetuates rape and continue to be misled in this war.. But the cost ofthis war is too high. Given the social stigma around rape (and overall everything that is sexual), there is legit scope for casting doubt over rape statistics of Bangladesh. However, even the understated documentation of rape in Bangladesh reflects the horrifying extent of insecurity that curtails our women. The picture stands manifold worse if the average Bengali womensdaily experience of sexual misconduct and harassment, which are ...

The period after World War Two, with its sustained growth and high employment rate, has been referred to as the golden age of capitalism. Blending historical analysis with economic theory, this work presents essays that scrutinize the institutions that fostered this growth and high employment as well as the forces which later undermined the effectiveness of these institutions in the 1960s and 70s.

November 2012 (updated August 2013). Abstract. The paper studies the nature and extent of Egyptian "crony" capitalism by comparing the corporate performance and the stock market valuation of politically connected and unconnected firms, before and after the 2011 popular uprising that led to the end of President Mubarak 30 years rule. First, we identify politically connected firms and conduct an event study around the events of 2011, as well as around previous events related to rumors about Mubaraks health. We estimate the market valuation of political connections to be 20% to 23% of the value of connected firms. Second, we explore the mechanisms used for granting these privileges by looking at corporate behavior before 2011. It appears that these advantages allowed connected firms to increase their market size and power and their borrowings. We finally compare the performance of firms and find that the rate of return on assets of connected firms was lower than that of non-connected firms by ...

Capitalism gets blamed for many things nowadays: poverty, inequality, unemployment, even global warming. As Pope Francis said in a recent speech in Bolivia:

By George Monbiot. Published in the Guardian 29th June 2000. Nearly everyone debating the mapping of the human genome now agrees on one thing: that the identification of our genes invokes an unprecedented danger, as it might assist a handful of companies to seize something which belongs to all of us. I wish this were true.. Terrifying as the impending capture of the essence of humanity is, it is far from unprecedented. The attempt to grab the genome is just one of many symptoms of a far graver disease. We are entering an age of totalitarian capitalism, a political and economic system which, by seizing absolute control of fundamental resources, destitutes everyone it excludes.. On Saturday I met a campaigner from Kerala in southern India, who told me that, to the tribal people he works with, the ownership of land is as inconceivable as the ownership of air would be in the northern hemisphere. I told him the bad news. In several American cities, blocks of air, which (once legally transferred to a ...

This doesnt mean that the bailout plan is wonderful.. American banks have portrayed themselves as wealth creators who should face low taxes and light regulation.. In London we hear the same nonsense parroted as well. That the wealth creators have turned out to be some of the most efficient wealth destroyers in history is also a grave irony.. Some sort of pain needs to be faced by banks on Wall Street in future. There was a grave danger that Treasury Secretary Hank Paulsons plan, certainly initially, would have let all sorts of rogues and fools off scot-free.. It has been adjusted and makes more sense now but actually the fairness to America is an American matter - US legislators could have made sure of this and passed the plan anyway. Its failure risks more months of uncertainty and more state intervention of the sort of the Republicans claim they are opposing. We arent of course talking about the end of capitalism and the rise of socialism. It is not suddenly going to become more efficient ...

Such a beautiful way of speaking, of using euphemisms to conceal the daily horrors of what they were doing and what they were sent to do, which was not to find religious freedom as we are told but to establish capitalist camps to feed the rich in Europe. That capitalist consumption machine we fed in England and Europe was then/is now turned back on us, and we are the feeders feeding off other colonies. Better to celebrate the day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday, like Ad Busters recommends: Buy Nothing Day, a wildcat (general) strike, and anti-consumer capitalism demonstrations. Occupy not other peoples land but consumer-capitalism itself. Most Americans/US citizens have no idea what "capitalism" means, but we all have our mythic ideas and notions, the misbegotten belief that if we sell something, OH! were capitalists! That does not make one a capitalist, nor does buying. Read up on "capitalism," or not, because it might radicalize you, and you might come to understand why so many ...
and "Occupy Should Target and Destroy the Ruling Money Fetish." I also recommend a very fundamental analysis of capitalism, Sanders "A Crisis of Value.". One short note: readers should not confuse Marxs analysis of capitalism with the state capitalist monstrosities of the former USSR and allied states, with state ownership of capitalist enterprises, or even with workers ownership of such enterprises. His analysis isnt another school of "economics," like the Austrian or Keynesian schools. Nor is it based upon competition and other conditions specific to Nineteenth Century industrial capitalism. It uses a single global capital as its starting point. Hopefully the suggested readings will do away with such confusion.. The Ecological Crisis needs little introduction to readers of Nature Bats Last. While climate collapse is the most obvious facet, there are others, such as the destruction of habitats and ensuing, accelerating collapses of ecosystems and species extinctions, the acidification of ...
The way I look at it, capitalism is at its best when it is democratic, when anybody can enter the field with a new idea or new product and be successful. If we are trying to change to non-traditional energy sources, then I would hope for a fresh field day for innovative entrepreneurs. Thats when the pressures of competition actually will pressure even greedy bastards in business to do things that benefit the common good. Capitalism is at its weakest when it becomes oligarchic, when a few entrenched companies have taken over the field, and may in fact be in collusion. That is how I see the oil industry today. Of course, oligarchic capitalists will try to hold on to their position, and use government to preserve their postiion. . The banking industry, with the too big to fail companies, which prevailed upon a Republican-dominated government to do the most socialistic thing our government has ever done, would be another example of oligarchic capitalism. Its my hope that acknowledging global ...
I dont agree. We both were born and raised under the Soviet communism. I clearly remember the time when any deviation from the partys political line was considered a crime against people. All art, literature and freethinking was shutdown if it did not praise the socialist agenda. This is what this is. USA is quickly becoming the new USSR. From the ruins of capitalism they will build socialism now as people are hungry for the "change". Its a police state, just like Russia was after the Revolution and its going to get much worse. Controlled political segregation. Hardly an evolution in my opinion considering that this already happenned before many many times. So a revolution, not an evolution, we keep going around in a circle, but getting nowhere. Sick of capitalism, have some socialism. Sick of socialism, have some capitalism. Everybody happy. Except were getting nowhere. They keep enforcing the need for government with ideas like peak oil and energy crisis. Which is a load of lies. There is ...
In its own evaluation of the success of the program, written in 2006, the World Bank concluded that the performance in reaching the objectives was "moderately successful." The project was moderately successful in that its objectives were so limited. The project goal for clarification of land tenure was set at 3 million hectares.. The Bolivian governments estimate of land requiring clarification of title identifies 110 million hectares requiring review, with only 20 million hectares having been reviewed in the last decade.. 7. ...THIS IS NOW. Despite Gonis resignation and flight from the country, and despite the calls for his arrest and extradition to stand trial for ordering the murderous assaults of 2003; despite the bankruptcy of the MNRs programs of "state capitalism" and "market capitalism"-- not once, but five times-- these failures live on in the MAS programs of--- state capitalism, nationalization, land reform.. In fact, Bolivia remains an enclave economy. Ninety percent of its total ...
The struggle against punitive neoliberalism and its ideology begins with the rejection of its myths. Unemployment is not the result of laziness, but an aspect of capitalism and of colonial and dependent capitalism. Debt and over-indebtedness are not caused by personal irresponsibility or over-generous public spending, but are inherent to capitalism, particularly in its most recent period, with its anti-labor policies, corporate tax cuts and bailouts.. People and states "owe" capital but only because capital owes all of society. In Puerto Rico this manifests itself in a paradox: a stagnant economy with a bankrupt government still generates massive profits for a handful of primarily U.S. corporations.. The fiscal and debt crisis is not a Puerto Rican particularity but a global process. Austerity is not inevitable, it is the policy that global capital seeks to impose to make us pay for its crisis. The extent to which it is imposed is not preordained, but rather depends on the outcome of the clash, ...
This summary of my economic theory traces how industrial capitalism has turned into finance capitalism. The finance, insurance and real estate (FIRE) sector has emerged to create "balance sheet wealth" not by new tangible investment and employment, but financially in the form of debt leveraging and rent-extraction. This rentier overhead is overpowering the economys ability to produce a large enough surplus to carry its debts. As in a radioactive decay process, we are passing through a short-lived and unstable phase of "casino capitalism," which now threatens to settle into leaden austerity and debt deflation.. This situation confronts society with a choice either to write down debts to a level that can be paid (or indeed, to write them off altogether with a clean slate) or to permit creditors to foreclose, concentrating property in their own hands (including whatever assets are in the public domain to be privatized) and imposing a combination of financial and fiscal austerity on the population. ...
In her famous pamphlet Social reform or revolution which is one of the pieces I have been most interested in reading as I feel capitalism will look to reformist measures in the future to save its system, Rosa Luxemburg argued that capitalism may have experienced a prolonged economic upswing but it hadnt solved its contradictions. Credit could only temporarily delay a crisis and would also intensify it, Monopoly capitalism had not eradicated competition which was sharpening between the imperialist countries resulting in further conflict when war broke out in 1914 ...
Lasch was deeply anti-capitalist. He rounded up the usual suspects with the prime suspect being multinationals. To him, it wasnt only a question of exploitation of the working masses. Capitalism acted as acid on the social and moral fabrics and made them disintegrate. Lasch adopted, at times, a theological perception of capitalism as an evil, demonic entity. Zeal usually leads to inconsistency of argumentation: Lasch claimed, for instance, that capitalism negated social and moral traditions while pandering to the lowest common denominator. There is a contradiction here: social mores and traditions are, in many cases, THE lowest common denominator. Lasch displayed a total lack of understanding of market mechanisms and the history of markets. True, markets start out as mass-oriented and entrepreneurs tend to mass- produce to cater to the needs of the newfound consumers. However, as markets evolve - they fragment. Individual nuances of tastes and preferences tend to transform the mature market ...
The book draws from the Positive Organizational Scholarship approach, a research stream in which the virtues of leaders have been understudied, at least in terms of the holistic approach that we adopt. The book explores how virtues and character strengths may deliver positive organizational performance. It stresses that virtues represent the golden mean between the extremes of excess and deficiency, and discuss the perverse consequences of excessive virtuousness. The book is intended to be neither a sermon nor a collection of pious guidelines aimed to preach virtuous virtuosity to global leaders. Nor is it a sustained attack on capitalism - not because we see no alternative or that it is the only game on the globe but because there are many different kinds of capitalisms and we think it more pragmatically possible to effect reform in these than their transformation into some utopia that, in practice, will never be what it was proposed to be in theory. Capitalism is a meaningless category, we would
I agree, that capitalism cannot be considered the end of the road as far as humanities development of economic systems are concerned. I do however share the perspective that capitalism got a lot of things right. My problem is how does one begin to separate what is really a fundamental part of capitalism from what is merely a side effect of human nature. If I use Micro Economics and Macro Economics as taught in highschool and college as a guide. The excesses that are routinely complained about are not a fundamental part of the system.. For example, when a firm produces a product that pollutes the environment in some form and the cost of remediation is not included in the price of the good/service. That is refered to as an externality. Now there is no blanket statement on what people should do with these externalities. Instead it is kinda left up to the people practicing the system to find a solution. Personally I think any externality that is created by the production of a good/service should ...
The Origin of Contradictions. The feminist movement can trace its roots to the contradictions that arose with the development of capitalism. This can be seen when examining the fact that capitalism was the force behind the transformation of social production. The changes that capitalism brought on influenced both domestic, and non-domestic spheres of production. The following is a brief description of this process, beginning with some comments on the two spheres of production. The sphere of domestic production occurs within the family unit. Men and women are designated positions within this sphere based on their gender. The relationships within this sphere are conditioned around the idea of property ownership, and designed so that men have control and authority over women and children. Trends of exploitation and domination are thus prominent. Within this sphere, domestic production, taken on by women, includes giving birth to children, raising them, nourishing the family, taking care of health ...
We got to face some facts. That the masses are poor, that the masses belong to what you call the lower class, and when I talk about the masses, Im talking about the white masses, Im talking about the black masses, and the brown masses, and the yellow masses, too. Weve got to face the fact that some people say you fight fire best with fire, but we say you put fire out best with water. We say you dont fight racism with racism. Were gonna fight racism with solidarity. We say you dont fight capitalism with no black capitalism; you fight capitalism with socialism. -- Fred ...

Should businessmen who commit fraud go to prison? This question has been asked repeatedly since 2008; it was also raised in nineteenth-century Britain, when the spread of corporate capitalism created enormous new opportunities for dishonesty. Historians have presented Victorian Britain as a haven for white-collar criminals, beneficiaries of a prejudiced criminal justice system which only dealt harshly with offences by the poor. This book challenges these beliefs. Based on an unparalleled sample of legal cases-many examined here for the first time-it presents a radical new interpretation of the relationship between capitalism and the law. Initially, there were no criminal sanctions against publishing false prospectuses, concealing losses in balance sheets, and even misappropriating company ...
Since its foundation, the SPGB has opposed every war-including World War I[18] and World War II.[19] In its early years party writers frequently would contrast the numbers of dead in wars with the numbers killed and maimed in industrial incidents (by way of trying to contrast the passions and efforts put into war with the lack of response to the conditions of capitalism). The party argues that wars in capitalism were fought in the interests of the capitalist class and-as with their case against nationalism-the workers did all the dying for no gain for themselves. Second, that while the press and politicians tried to call for strike moderation, the capitalists would continue the class war despite hostilities, forcing down wages and up consumer good prices. During both wars some members won conscientious objector status. In 1914, the banner headline of the Socialist Standard invited workers to join up-for the class war-as the only way of bringing peace and security. The magazine was in a list of ...
Oh, crap, Brendon! Chessmaster was a criminal class venture capitalist program, moving through a stream of bankrupting companies burning their way through outrageous sums of investor cash, advertising, branding with massive budgets and effectively extracting huge amounts of consumer funds which might otherwise have found their way into actual chess programming pockets, rather than making some crooked venture capitalists (who really couldnt care less what they were selling) rich and ripping off others. The guy on the cover was an old homeless guy they found on the street, like the woman on the cover of Mavis Beacon teaches typing, same marketing guys idea, was called in from somewhere, and couldnt type. This whole thing was marketing over content and they moved from any one engine programmer to another at will, for no apparent good reason. Painful just how many people were taken in by it.

Most anti-communists reject the concept of historical materialism, which is a central idea in Marxism. Anti-communists reject the Marxist belief that capitalism will be followed by socialism and communism, just as feudalism was followed by capitalism. Anti-communists question the validity of the Marxist claim that the socialist state will "wither away" when it becomes unnecessary in a true communist society.. Many critics see a key error in communist economic theory, which predicts that in capitalist societies, the bourgeoisie will accumulate ever-increasing capital and wealth, while the lower classes become more dependent on the ruling class for survival, selling their labor power for the most minimal of salaries. Anti-communists point to the overall rise in the average standard of living in the industrialized West and claim that both the rich and poor have steadily gotten richer. Anti-communists argue that former Third World countries that have successfully escaped poverty in recent decades ...

This motion was passed unanimously at the recent CPGB-ML party congress. This congress notes that the last five years of deepening capitalist overproduction crisis have imposed genuine and unaccustomed hardships on British workers, and have hit working and middle-class youth with exceptional ferocity.. Congress further notes that British capitalism in crisis has seen all three of the major (Conservative, Liberal Democrat and Labour) parties in administration, and has shown that any party that aims to preserve British capitalism through this crisis cannot but attack British workers in general, and can offer no prospect of a productive and meaningful life or prosperous and secure future for working-class youth in particular. Since our last congress in 2010, we have seen the intensification of a long campaign against education and welfare provision for working-class youth, coinciding with a precipitous decline in paid employment.. Congress commends those British youth who have responded with an ...
During the feudal period the various social groups, each of which was engaged in the struggle for existence under a different and relatively distinct complex of conditions of production emerged as separate peoples. The physiognomy and character of each people possess relatively distinct traits.. From out of the midst of feudal economy capitalism evolved. By reason of this development, there arose within the production-life a two-fold material socio-economic contradiction. On the one hand, the productive forces, by reason of their higher stage of development, ceased to be adapted to the antiquated feudal relations of production. On the other hand, the productive forces -- which were passing through the processes of capitalist development -- were no longer adapted to the antiquated system of conditions of production. For the feudal order had broken up the peoples and their territories by means of innumerable barriers and this enormously impeded the development of capitalism.. As a rule, every ...
There are quite a few hot takes circulating at the moment about how grocery stores temporarily running out of toilet paper amid the current coronavirus pandemic is a stinging indictment of a capitalist economy. Most of those takes are not serious enough to be worth refuting, but apparently it bears repeating that consumer choice in a free society during difficult times is
Of which you and I are a part...... : As a whole- it must be the immense majority working in teh interests of the immense majority.. Yes I agree....BUT unfortnatley Capitalism does not create a nice tidy majority of conscious working class socialist revolutionaries, consciousness is uneven which is not to say that millions of people can at times be ready for a revolution, just that we may not get many more opportunites to get rid of capitalism.....so when mass crisiss happen we have to be ready to organise so that we (working class) win and not the very well organised capitalists.... : : Utter Rubbish-So anti-socialists such as Karl Marx, Rosa Luxemburg, etc...were all wrong hey?. : Last I heard niether of those two advocated vanguardism, wont find a single word of it in the Manifesto, your Chris Harman critiscises Rosa Luxemburg for her Ultra-Leftism during the German Revolution, and for her famous sponteneism. Noticeably you dont mention Lev Davidovitch The revolution is made by the ...
Its important to remember that in the age of globalization, Social Justice Warfare, and the move to destroy all vestiges of anything white and male --which includes advanced human civilization-- making money is NOT a priority. On the contrary, capitalism, that filthy exploitative WHITE MALE concept, must be erased from human memory at all costs. What matters is that SJWs co-opt the machinery of the abomination of capitalism put in place by these white male monsters and use it to destroy them and everything theyve built (cue Lenin here: we shall hang the capitalists with the very rope they sold us!). Marissa Meyer is probably not truly an SJW herself, but a clueless dupe captivated by decades of progressive-feminist brainwashing in which she has been led to believe that vagina=greatness in spite of being a talentless hack ...
What you notice when you read Breiviks rantings is that, while he has some culture, it is very specific and fragmentary and that he is obsessed with finding an antagonist historical subject which to blame and destroy, in his case the Frankfurt School and what he so insistently calls CM. He does not understand that all that is just parts of the dialectics of Capitalism, which, like a cursed Midas, destroys all it touches by means of corruption. As Capitalism destroys all ancient values by means of internal rot, someone has to come to try to save society, this actor is of course the Working Class (rather than just a bunch of intellectuals), which is always building and maintaining the machines of Capital. And not just the material machines but also the social and cultural machines. Where Capitalist predation causes a vacuum, workers come to fill it with their sans culotte ideology of equality and freedom, which is nothing but the natural human way of being: the hunter-gatherer essence never fully ...
The fossil/proto-fossil distinction helpfully focuses Malms analysis on the historical transition between these two economic formations. The key issue then becomes: How did self-sustaining economic growth become the main driver of coal burning during the Industrial Revolution? On one level, the question answers itself. There is only one economic system that has ever generated self-sustained growth and fossil combustion on the scale required to explain climate change: capitalism. The reason is that capitalism is the only system driven by the competitive drive for increased monetary values, achieved by extracting surplus value from workers in production using any and all means available, including fossil fuels. Naturally the devil is in the details. Exactly how and why was fossil burning adopted by and then hardwired into the capitalist industrialization process? Here, Malm gives us a two-part explanation. The first part builds upon Marxs mature analysis of machinery and factory systems, which, ...
The art today reflects the lack of a critical incubation period for comprehensive work to come into being. Western society has always had a pacing problem, but in the overpopulated smart phone era the pace has accelerated; thus mostly what we receive are shards of rushed out concepts, or mildly altered rehashes of better told tales. If one should follow the prescribed path laid before you by parents, teachers, and institutions there is rarely a moment of solitude. Never a moment to collect your thoughts with a fresh mind. Never a moment where germination of an idea can hit maturity, no ability for minds to think and rid themselves of the lies of the ego which muddles the canvas of thought. Hyper-competitive capitalist culture weaponizes the ego, it lauds arrogance as healthy sense of extroversion and assertiveness. Trophies, awards, accolades, degrees, the panoply of plaudits to puff up plutocrats; well credentialed victims of the Dunning-Kruger effect. All that perfunctory self serving ...

The Authoritarian Personality_ involved a series of studies sponsored by the American Jewish Committee which were supposed to define a certain personality type which would be easily taken up with antidemocratic propaganda, in light of the tragedy and disaster that was the Third Reich. Scales were developed to assess Antisemitism, Political-Economic Conservativism (which amounted to support for laissez-faire capitalism), and Authoritarianism (the F (for Fascist) scale). Both the Antisemitism scale and the Political-Economic Conservativism scale involved predictable statements in which the subjects had to state their level of agreement with in order to achieve a score. The F scale, involved a series of statements which were designed to measure conventionalism, authoritarian submission, authoritarian aggression, anti-intraception (i.e. Opposition to the subjective, the imaginative, and the tender-minded.), superstition and stereotypy, power and toughness, destructiveness and cynicism, ...

With its 3,020,209 people, Albania is the 137th largest country in the world by population. It is the 143rd largest country in the world by area with 28,748 square kilometers. Albania declared its independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1912, but was conquered by Italy in 1939, and occupied by Germany in 1943. Communist partisans took over the country in 1944. Albania allied itself first with the USSR (until 1960), and then with China (to 1978). In the early 1990s, Albania ended 46 years of xenophobic communist rule and established a multiparty democracy. The transition has proven challenging as successive governments have tried to deal with high unemployment, widespread corruption, dilapidated infrastructure, powerful organized crime networks, and combative political opponents. Albania has made progress in its democratic development since first holding multiparty elections in 1991, but deficiencies remain. International observers judged elections to be largely free and fair since the ...

Albania has made progress in its democratic development since first holding multiparty elections in 1991, but deficiencies remain. International observers judged elections to be largely free and fair since the restoration of political stability following the collapse of pyramid schemes in 1997; however, there have been claims of electoral fraud in every one of Albanias post-communist elections.

For almost one hundred years asbestos was one of the most popular materials used for the manufacture of insulation and hundreds of industrial and construction products that needed to be flexible, fire resistant and tough. By the 1970s however the asbestos companies finally acknowledged the obvious: asbestos fibers can be extremely toxic when inhaled or ingested. Since then the courts have held asbestos companies liable for health damages due to their products. Hundreds of thousands of claims have been filed against them for damages, almost exclusively health damages. Employees from the construction trades, military veterans and workers from dozens of industries filed suits against manufacturers of asbestos and companies who used the material in their products. Because asbestos use was so widespread and has ruined the health for so many people over 70 companies that were producers of asbestos or asbestos products filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy for the purpose of protecting themselves from ...
Bulgaria was founded as a state in 681 AD and in its development had gone through stages associated with large ups and downs. In modern epoch the third Bulgarian state was restored on July 1st 1878. (Berlin Peace Treaty), and on September 22nd 1908 Principality of Bulgaria was declared "an independent state". After the World War II Bulgaria fell under the influence of the Soviet Union and in 1946 Bulgaria became a Peoples Republic with one-party government (the Bulgarian Communist Party), having taken the Soviet model of planned economy with nationalization of the enterprises and collectivization of agriculture. Due to ongoing changes in the late Twentieth Century in the entire Eastern Europe and public pressure inside the country, Bulgaria began a political system transition from Communism and planned economy to Democracy and free market economy (in 1989). On April 2nd 2004 Bulgaria became a NATO member and on January 1st 2007 joined the European Union ...

Waffen-SS (Sebutan bahasa Jerman: [ˈvafən.ɛs.ɛs], SS Bersenjata ataupun Tentera SS) telah diwujudkan sebagai sayap tempur bagi Schutzstaffel ("Skuad Pelindung") dalam Parti Nazi dan secara beransur-ansur berkembang menjadi pasukan tentera pelbagai etnik dan pelbagai negara Jerman Nazi. Waffen-SS berkembang dari tiga rejimen kepada lebih 38 divisyen semasa Perang Dunia II, dan berkhidmat bersama Heer (tentera darat tetap Jerman) tetapi tidak pernah secara rasmi menjadi sebahagian daripadanya. Adolf Hitler menentang kemasukan Waffen-SS kedalam tentera darat, kerana ia mesti kekal sebagai sayap bersenjata Parti dan menjadi sebuah pasukan elit polis apabila perang telah dimenangi. Sebelum perang ia diletakkan dibawah kawalan SS Führungshauptamt (Ibupejabat operasi SS) dibawah Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler. Setelah pengerahan berlaku kawalan taktikalnya telah diserahkan kepada Markas Besar Angkatan Tentera (Oberkommando der Wehrmacht). Pada mulanya keanggotaan dibuka kepada rakyat Jerman ...

These [LGBT] adolescents may experience profound isolation and fear of discovery, which interferes with achieving developmental tasks of adolescence related to self-esteem, identity, and intimacy. Nonheterosexual youth often are subjected to harassment and violence; 45% of gay men and 20% of lesbians surveyed were victims of verbal and physical assaults in secondary school specifically because of their sexual orientation. Nonheterosexual youth are at higher risk of dropping out of school, being kicked out of their homes, and turning to life on the streets for survival. Some of these youth engage in substance use, and they are more likely than heterosexual peers to start using tobacco, alcohol, and illegal drugs at an earlier age. Youth in high school who identify themselves as gay, lesbian, or bisexual; engage in sexual activity with persons of the same sex; or report same-sex romantic attractions or relationships are more likely to attempt suicide, be victimized, and abuse substances. . . . ...

Kaufmann also cites Hegel's criticism of the triad model commonly misattributed to him, adding that "the only place where Hegel uses the three terms together occurs in his lectures on the history of philosophy, on the last page but one of the sections on Kant-where Hegel roundly reproaches Kant for having 'everywhere posited thesis, antithesis, synthesis'".[32] To describe the activity of overcoming the negative, Hegel also often used the term Aufhebung, variously translated into English as "sublation" or "overcoming", to conceive of the working of the dialectic. Roughly, the term indicates preserving the useful portion of an idea, thing, society, etc., while moving beyond its limitations. (Jacques Derrida's preferred French translation of the term was relever.)[33] In the Logic, for instance, Hegel describes a dialectic of existence: first, existence must be posited as pure Being (Sein); but pure Being, upon examination, is found to be indistinguishable from Nothing (Nichts). When it is ...
