Sacred Economics, Chapter 1, By Charles Eisenstein

Sacred Economics

My intention is that by identifying the core features of the economics of Separation, we may be empowered to envision an economics of Reunion, an economics that restores to wholeness our fractured communities, relationships, cultures, ecosystems, and planet. – The second installment from Sacred Economics: Money, Gift, and Society in the Age of Transition. . . . → Read More: Sacred Economics, Chapter 1, By Charles Eisenstein

The New 30-Years’ War: Winners And Losers In The Great Global Energy Struggle To Come, By Michael Klare

soldier & oil fields

Think of us today as embarking on a new Thirty Years’ War. It may not result in as much bloodshed as that of the 1600s, though bloodshed there will be, but it will prove no less momentous for the future of the planet. Over the coming decades, we will be embroiled at a global level in a succeed-or-perish contest among the major forms of energy, the corporations which supply them, and the countries that run on them. The question will be: Which will dominate the world’s energy supply in the second half of the twenty-first century? The winners will determine how — and how badly — we live, work, and play in those not-so-distant decades, and will profit enormously as a result. The losers will be cast aside and dismembered. . . . → Read More: The New 30-Years’ War: Winners And Losers In The Great Global Energy Struggle To Come, By Michael Klare

Michele Bachmann Is No Laughing Matter: Her Holy War, By Matt Taibbi

Michelle Bachman

It could happen. Michele Bachmann has found the flaw in the American Death Star. She is a television camera’s dream, a threat to do or say something insane at any time, the ultimate reality-show protagonist. She has brilliantly piloted a media system that is incapable of averting its eyes from a story, riding that attention to an easy conquest of an overeducated cultural elite from both parties that is far too full of itself to understand the price of its contemptuous laughter. All of those people out there aren’t voting for Michele Bachmann. They’re voting against us. And to them, it turns out, we suck enough to make anyone a contender. . . . → Read More: Michele Bachmann Is No Laughing Matter: Her Holy War, By Matt Taibbi

GEAB: Global Systemic Crisis–Last Warning Before Autumn, 2011

Global Unwinding

On December 15, 2010, in the GEAB N°50, LEAP/E2020 anticipated the explosion of Western government debt (1) in the second half of 2011. We were then describing a process that would start with the European government debt crisis and then set fire to the heart of the global financial system, namely US federal debt (2). And here we are with this issue at the start of the second half of 2011, with a global economy in complete disarray (3), an increasingly unstable global monetary system (4) and financial centres in desperate straits (5), all this despite the thousands of billions of public money invested to avoid precisely this type of situation. The insolvency of the global financial system, and of the Western financial system in the first place, returns again to the front of the stage after just over a year of political cosmetics aimed at burying this fundamental problem under truckloads of cash. . . . → Read More: GEAB: Global Systemic Crisis–Last Warning Before Autumn, 2011

Is The Dramatic Increase In Baby Deaths In The U.S. A Result of Fukushima Fallout? By Janette Sherman, MD and Joseph Mangano

Infant Mortality

A 35% Spike in Infant Mortality in Northwest Cities Since Meltdown—U.S. babies are dying at an increased rate. While the United States spends billions on medical care, as of 2006, the US ranked 28th in the world in infant mortality, more than twice that of the lowest ranked countries.
