Live from Planet Norte by Joe Bageant

Quote:

Live from Planet NorteAmerica's totalitarian democracy
and the politics of plunder, or, life is a titty tuck and a Dodge truck

By Joe Bageant

The uniformity on Planet Norte is striking.
Each person is a unit, installed in life support
boxes in the suburbs and cities; all are fed,
clothed by the same closed-loop corporate
industrial system. Everywhere you look,
inhabitants are plugged in at the brainstem
to screens downloading their state approved
daily consciousness updates.

The Third Depression

By Paul Krugman

We are now, I fear, in the early stages of a third
depression. It will probably look more like the
Long Depression than the much more severe
Great Depression. But the cost — to the world
economy and, above all, to the millions of lives
by the absence of jobs — will nonetheless be
immense.

Suiting Up for a Post-Dollar World

By John Browne

There is fresh evidence that time is running
out for the dollar-centric global monetary
order. In fact, central banks outside the US
are already making swift and discrete
preparation for a post-dollar era.
