The case for a household debt jubilee

CADTM - en - Wed, 07/03/2018 - 10:09

A decade since the onset of the global financial crisis, outstanding household debt stands just short of £1.6 trillion, 13 percent higher than its peak in the third quarter of 2008. £239 billion of this is unsecured consumer credit, and this has increased by nearly 20 percent in the past two years.
Meanwhile, owing to a squeeze in real incomes (due to wage stagnation, growing precarity and underemployment), and cuts to the social safety net, the resources available to households to service (...)

Évitons le dépeçage de la Belgique, coupons les ailes aux fonds vautours

CADTM - fr - Tue, 06/03/2018 - 10:54

Carte Blanche publiée sur le site du journal L'Écho le 6 mars 2018, signée par 37 professeur-e-s des universités francophones belges (ULG, ULB, UCL, Mons).
Les fonds vautours ne sont pas seulement inutiles, ils sont dangereux économiquement. Ils renforcent et amplifient l'instabilité économique et empêchent le redémarrage économique des États qui en sont victimes.
Les fonds vautours sont des institutions financières, domiciliées dans les paradis fiscaux, qui rachètent à très bas prix des dettes d'États (...)

The Greek left and its “Macedonian” drift or how we open the door to the fascist menace!

CADTM - en - Tue, 06/03/2018 - 08:31

So, it is a “distasteful surprise” that Thedorakis publicly rubs himself up against apologists for racism, anti-Semitism, anti- communism and the nightmare of “ethnic purity”? Undoubtedly distasteful, but not a surprise. And if the problem were only Mikis, it would not be much harm. However, since it is not just him but also several others, the problem is enormous, and the danger imminent. It is therefore time to call things by their proper name.
First truth: The Greek left, or at least a (...)

CADTM - en - Sat, 03/03/2018 - 13:56

We're now into the second year of the Trump administration, and the last year has been filled with ups and downs, important victories, successful holding campaigns, and painful defeats.
