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."

Local food systems through the lens of the food crisis

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 »

Fuel Poverty in Hungary: an initial assessment

energy poverty roma hungary

Though fuel poverty (i.e., the inability to afford adequate energy services for the household) is a concept to be framed in more general considerations about poverty and deprivation, there are several reasons to detach it from the common struggle of families to make ends meet. Some key distinctive features of this phenomenon as identified in the literature are:  Read more »

Democratisation, development, civil society
Zsolt Boda

We are going to examine the connections between the three concepts. First we make an attempt at interpreting the relationship between democracy and development, and quickly look at the arguments which are based on the assumption that there is some cause and effect relationship between the two. The basic question is, of course, which definition of democracy or development we take as a starting point. For a start, we accept that development is one with economic growth, but the next step is to discuss development as a more complex social phenomenon – this, of course, will have consequences on the question of its relationship with democracy. In a normative approach we can safely argue that democracy itself is part of the concept of social development and in this case it does not make sense to look for cause and effect relationships between the two phenomena.  Read more »

The State and Challenges of International Development

The State and Challenges of International Development
Gábor Scheiring
April 2008

Musing on the situation of international development politics at the dawn of the 21st century, one has to ask the question whether the development path followed in the past decades has actually taken present and future generations closer to the fulfilment of their human rights and the creative unfolding of their freedom. How sustainable and just is the global order that came as the result of development following the Second World War? And if we find that the inequalities characterising today’s world are obscene , and the extent of the exploitation of the ecosystem is insane, what development policies shall we envision? This present study seeks the answer to that question. First, we have to identify the major challenges that international development faces, then we have to examine whether the development approaches applied so far are capable of giving appropriate answers to these. By drawing the conclusions of the theoretical overview, we can identify the major underlying causes, and we can sketch an alternative vision for the future. The study closes with the outline of the public policies needed to fulfill that vision.  Read more »
