New World Disorder

Larry Elliott

Some say the 1960s ended with Woodstock in August 1969. Others date the decade’s demise to the break-up of the Beatles eight months later. Both are wrong. The 60s died 30 years ago this week when, on October 6 1973, Egypt and Syria chose Yom Kippur, the holiest date in the Jewish calendar, to launch a surprise attack on Israel.

Selling Someone Else's Family Silver

World Crisis Web Editorial

I need a drink! I?ve just arrived back from town, after another humiliating session with the employment agency. They wanted to know why I wouldn?t take a job making synthetic rubber at the local Dupont factory, and they weren?t being very discrete about suspecting the reasons I gave for turning it down. I could almost hear their thoughts - “He?s just a lazy get. Three hundred pounds a week, and real prospects for promotion, and he?s whingeing on about ethics and the poor”. From their perspective, they couldn?t understand why I find multinational corporations so morally objectionable.

Stumbling Toward Disaster: The Trade Charade

Kevin Watkins

When a man knows he is to be hung,” Samuel Johnson famously observed, “it concentrates his mind wonderfully.” With just over two weeks to go before the next phase of global trade talks, the prospect of the world’s trading system collapsing might have been expected to concentrate the minds of negotiators from the rich countries. Judging by a pact announced on Wednesday, however, American and European political leaders relish nothing more than the prospect of a good hanging.

The End?

Stephen James Kerr

Get out of the way. American capitalism has declared war on the laws of physics.  Somebody please tell the president of the United States that whatever political and economic system we create, human beings cannot change the 1st law of thermodynamics. We can’t create energy from thin air. Big business may be able to swindle the American electorate, but it can’t repeal the law of diminishing returns.
