    La bioeconomía se presenta como una respuesta a las actuales crisis sociales y ambientales, con su promesa de reemplazar los combustibles fósiles por recursos biológicos 'renovables'. ¿Pero como se materializa sobre el terreno? ¿Quién sale ganando y quién sale perdiendo? ¿Y cuáles son las alternativas?

    This timeline draws on The Rise and Decline of Cannabis Prohibition that described the history of international control, how cannabis was included in the current UN drug control system and the  subsequent defections by countries and states that have brought the international treaties to breaking point.

    Many countries continue to incarcerate and criminalise people for possession or use of drugs, with criminalisation alone undermining employment, education and housing opportunities.

    Contra todo pronóstico, el capital financiero ha emergido aún más fortalecido de la crisis financiera y ha logrado mantener a raya las regulaciones y cargar la culpa al gasto público. Pero su victoria es probablemente pírrica porque se avecina una nueva crisis en la que la ciudadanía global podrá aprender de victorias tales como las reformas en Islandia y reafirmar finalmente su control sobre el capital.

    Policy issue

    Privatisations of state-owned assets have become a central plank of EU/Troika agreements with debtor nations such as Greece, Ireland, Italy, Spain and Portugal, but there has been little examination of their track record nor an examination of who really benefits.

    Report

    La economía aparece frecuentemente como algo aburrido, pero esta profesión restringida y principalmente dominada por hombres decide sobre asuntos íntimamente ligados a cuestiones de poder, a la democracia y a elementos vitales para la salud, la educación, el bienestar social y el medio ambiente. Una democracia significativa requiere de la participación de la gente común en los debates económicos, de tal manera que puedan dar forma a sus propias vidas en solidaridad con los demás.
