This crisis is the beginning of a new phase of reform and adaptation in the history of capitalist development, but which direction will this take?

Rescatar o no rescatar; he aquí el problema: ¿Qué es más noble para el espíritu: sufrir Los golpes y dardos del insultantemente bajo kilometraje, O tomar las armas contra un piélago de vehículos del calentamiento Y haciéndoles frente para acabar con ellos?

The title of the whole series of this Cycle is “Los Retos del Siglo XXI”, [“Challenges of the 21st century”] and certainly the siglo XXI has got off to a very bad start.

Excuse me starting with a reference to Britain. I don't mean to be parochial; it's just that in a financial crisis what the City of London does, and even what it thinks, is of much more than local significance. In a particularly acute way, the behaviour of the City demonstrates how important it is, at this time, for the left to think through the issue of public ownership of the banks and what ... Read more
