Maybe you haven�t noticed, but there is a world war going on out there. It�s a class war, raging world-wide, and everyone is affected by it. Across the globe the dividing line has been drawn. A small minority seeks to dominate the world, spreading global free-market capitalism to the last corners of the planet, regardless of the consequences for the people who happen to live there. All alternatives have failed, they tell us. Communism, Socialism, Keynesianism, Protectionism; they have all been tried, none of them worked. Global capitalism is the only way, the only road. There are no alternatives. We have reached the end of ...

about former Nevada state Rep. Sharron Angle, a leading Republican candidate in the race to take on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D). Angle, who enjoys the enthusiastic support of the Tea Party crowd, has some unorthodox views about a wide variety of issues. Here, for example, is Angle reflecting on her childhood : "We moved to the state of Nevada when I was three-and-a-half. My father bought a small business out in front of the convention center in Reno -- and it wasn't a convention center then; it was an onion field. But his small business was a motel. And so we did those things as a kid growing up that ... market research, surveys and trends
Editorial misconduct on the climate beat : Class M
challenging the reality of anthropogenic climate change is not particularly interesting. What is worth looking at is the width of the gap between the research cited by the editorialist and what the research is actually all about. The editorial, which ran under the headline "Nero was hotter than Al Gore," argues that a new paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences finds the Earth was warmer in Roman times than it is today. Even if true, this would mean little, unless the ancient anomalously warm period was exceptionally long. But it certainly would constitute a convincing counterargument to the notion ... market research, surveys and trends


Glasser named Foreign Policy's EIC - Michael Calderone -
in fall 2008, former Post national editor Susan Glasser was brought in as executive editor and in the months that followed, helped relaunch the magazine’s website. Now, Glasser's taking on an even bigger role, succeeding Moises Naim as editor-in-chief, according to a memo obtained by POLITICO. Naim leaves the magazine after 14 years.

Poverty News Blog: September 2007
A Peruvian widow borrowed $64 and bought a few pigs. For $55, a villager in Ghana went into the mineral-water trade. A mother of nine in Guatemala upgraded her grocery store with $250. These women from three continents have something in common: They are beneficiaries of microcredit - very small loans to very poor people for very small businesses. The benefactors, in many cases, are ordinary individuals inspired by a movement that is reshaping philanthropy and making it as accessible as the click of a mouse or a visit to a house party. More and more of us are becoming convinced that lending even tiny amounts of money to destitute ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Matilija Dam removal hits a major block: the sediment behind it
was once touted as a visionary project where many governmental organizations worked with environmental groups to restore an ecosystem that was a victim of the short-sighted hand of man. But after years of planning and negotiating, the project, much like the trapped rocks and sand behind the defunct dam, is stuck. “We basically ended up in a stalemate,” said Paul Jenkin, executive director of the Matilija Coalition, who was against the U.S. Army Corps proposal to permanently store about 2 million cubic yards of fine sediment from the dam along the banks of the Ventura River. The debate over what to do with all that sand and silt ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

One Nation at AllExperts
The term denotes a political stance aspiring towards unity of the citizenry in the nation, as well as harmony between divergent classes and interest groups, as opposed to the societal polarization seen through the class warfare of old Labour's militant socialism, or of Margaret Thatcher free-market economic reforms. Harold Macmillan , British prime minister from 1957 to 1963, and his rival Rab Butler , were leading figures of One Nation Conservatism in the 1950s and 1960s. The term derives indirectly from one of Benjamin Disraeli 's political novels, Sybil, or the Two Nations , in which he described Britain as ...
