WHITHER CAPITALISM? THE CRISIS OF FINANCIALIZATION FROM THE CORE TO THE PERIPHERY

in

"....The task is to form a new kind of capitalism with smaller inequalities both globally and within individual societies as well, in which real economy is not subordinated to the financial sector, where SME’s providing job opportunities have access to investment resources just as much as large corporations, where the peripheries are provided real chances for development, and in which more labour-intensive and resource-saving means of production provide solution for unemployment and poverty."

Agriculture and development – a global analysis

On the dawn of the 21st century, about half of the Earth’s six billion inhabitants are living in poverty, on 2 dollars a day. Deep poverty is accompanied by chronic hunger as well as famines incurring in the wake of wars and natural catastrophes.  Read more »

Energy and Climate
Jan Dolezal

There is now a strong consensus that climate change presents an urgent challenge to the well-being of all countries, particularly the poorest countries and the poorest people in them. It epitomizes the complexity of the development challenge in a globalizing but still highly unequal world. It magnifies growing concerns about food security, water scarcity and energy security. It is a daunting environmental threat that raises the most difficult issues of economic disparity, political power, and social justice. The primary direct effects of climate change are an increase in droughts and floods, more seasonal peaks in river flow and a higher probability of stronger tropical storms. The poorest countries and communities are likely to suffer the most because of their geographical location, low incomes and low institutional capacity as well as their greater reliance on climate-sensitive sectors like agriculture. This could lead to population displacement, migration, and potential conflicts. In the longer term, sea level rise and glacier melting threaten the existence of nations and the development foundation of sub-continents.  Read more »

Local food systems through the lens of the food crisis

in

The food crisis of 2007-2008, affecting over forty countries worldwide, acted as a wake up call. It reminded the international community that – in accordance with the founding principles of food sovereignty- thriving localized food systems are essential in ensuring the food security of local populations in the face of severe food supply shocks.  Read more »

Water privatisation in the context of transition

"Privatisation was to be the key to creating a healthy economy with competent companies that provide jobs for people and
pay taxes, rather than being dependent upon state policies and subsidies. Just a few years into the transition to a marketeconomy,
however, Hungarians have discovered that private ownership does not necessarily mean efficiency, and that the
argument of additional investment is also questionable. The process of water privatisation well illustrates the pitfalls of
privatisation."  Read more »

Conflicting Principles of Fair Trade*

From the Abstract:

"This paper concerns the interpretations of the concept of fair or equitable trade; a concept which gained some currency and political support in the 1970s and which seemed to disappear in the wave of trade liberalization. However, recently the free trade dogma, being a constitutive element of economic globalization, has been thoroughly scrutinized and criticised by the globalization critics; and the concept of fair trade has been reintroduced in both academic and political discourse.
