"Dealing With Iran" Two Opposite Views from the Left. Instead of blaming the US-Israeli axis of aggression for the never-ending and escalating turbulence in the Middle East, Dr. Zogby blames Iran!

What Quantitative Easing Really Means Stripped from the fancy (and mystifying) jargon, quantitative easing (QE) simply means increasing the quantity of money supply, or easing credit conditions--in the hope of stimulating the stagnant economy. This is usually done by having central banks inject a pre-determined quantity of money into the coffers of commercial banks in return for the purchase of their financial assets, which consist largely of government bonds.

An Insidious Threat to the Occupy Movement In light of their unsavory record of undermining the revolutionary energy of social movements, projections of sympathy for the anti-Wall Street protesters by the White House, the Democratic Party officials and union leaders can be viewed only with suspicion.

Debt Ceiling: Lots of Posturing, No Solution It is self-evident that no sickness can be successfully cured without proper diagnosis of the illness. In their frantic efforts to remedy the plague of national debt and deficit, however, US policy makers tend to shy away from the root causes of the problem and focus, instead, on scapegoats.

Why All the Wrangling over the Debt Ceiling? A Lesson for Obama Fans The disagreement between Barack Obama and John Boehner is essentially similar to the disagreement between two military generals or commanders who fight a common enemy--in this case the American public--but disagree over the tactics of how to defeat that enemy.

Why Regime Change in Libya? There is no question that global capitalism has thus woven together the fates and fortunes of the overwhelming majority of the world population in an increasingly intensifying struggle for subsistence and survival

Stoking the Fires of Islamophobia -- Peter King's Inquisition In light of this evidence, it is not surprising that a number of critics have characterized Mr. King's hearings on the "Radicalization of Muslims" as witch hunting or McCarthyism, comparing them with earlier prejudices and persecutions of other ethnic and religious minorities such as Catholics, Jews, African Americans, Asian Americans, and others.

Intifada beyond Palestine The long pent-up grievances of the Arab/Muslim world are exploding not just in the faces of local dictators such as Mubarak of Egypt or Ben Ali of Tunisia but, perhaps more importantly, against their neocolonial/imperial patrons abroad. The uprising represents a growing culture of resistance to neocolonialism that started with the great Iranian revolution of 1979.

The Globalization of Militarism The United States has been overtaken by a military-industrial-financial cabal whose representatives are firmly ensconced in both the White House and the US Congress. The ultimate goal of the cabal, according to their own military guidelines, is "full spectrum dominance" of the world; and they are willing to wage as many wars, to destroy as many countries and to kill as many people as necessary to achieve that goal.

The Militarization of the World: The Case of Iran By dividing the world into "allies" and "enemies," the powerful war profiteering interests in the Unites States, the military-industrial-security colossus, compel both "allies" and "enemies" to militarize.

Why the US Doesn't Talk to Iran US foreign policy decisions, especially in the Middle East, seem to be driven not so much by broad national interests as they are by narrow (but powerful) special interests, represented largely by the military-security-AIPAC forces, which tend to perceive international peace and stability as detrimental to their nefarious interests.

Putting the Brakes on the Neoliberal Race to the Bottom The Neoliberal strategy of dismantling the welfare state and driving the labour pay down to slave wages is not limited to the United States. Indeed, the competitive capitalist pressure of profitability and survival has driven almost all countries of the world to participate in this retrogressive race to the bottom.

Holes in the Keynesian Arguments against Neoliberal Austerity Policy--Not "Bad" Policy, But Class Policy Instead of calling the recent G-20's brutal austerity declaration (issued at the conclusion of its annual summit in Toronto last month) an orchestrated declaration of class war on the people, many progressive/Keynesian economists and other liberal commentators simply call it "bad policy."

Iran's Presidential Election One Year Later -" Why the Greens Failed One year after his controversial reelection as the president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad seems to be standing on firmer political ground than any other time of his presidency. By contrast, the political fortunes of his main challengers, Mousavi and Rafsanjani, have significantly declined during the past year. How do we explain the disintegration of the "green revolution"?

The Vicious Circle of Debt and Depression: It Is a Class War After transferring trillions of dollars of bad debt or toxic assets from the books of financial speculators to those of governments, global financial moguls, their representatives in the State apparatus and corporate media are now blaming social spending (in effect, the people) as responsible for debt and deficit!

New Phase, Not Just Another Recession It is becoming increasingly clear that the financial meltdown of 2008 and the subsequent economic contraction that continues to this day represent more than just another recessionary cycle. More importantly, they represent a structural change, a new phase, the phase of the dominance of "finance capital," as the late Austro-German political economist Rudolf Hilferding put it.

Reflecting on Iran's Presidential Election I can think of only two interpretations of Mr. Mousavi's assertion of “stolen elections.” The charitable interpretation is that he was led by his campaign architects to honestly believe he could not lose. The more likely interpretation, however, is that he colluded with the powerful interests behind his campaign not to accept defeat.

Obama's Doublespeak on Iran On the US-Iran relationship, President Obama seems to be talking from both sides of his mouth. From one side we hear promising messages of dialogue and a "new beginning" with Iran; from the other side provocative words that seems to be coming right out of the mouth of his predecessor, George W. Bush.

"Too Big to Fail": A Bailout Hoax Government policy makers, Wall Street financial gamblers, and the mainstream media are misrepresenting the ongoing financial difficulties as a problem of illiquidity or lack of cash. In reality, however, it is a problem of insolvency or lack of trust and, therefore, of hoarding cash. The current credit crunch is a symptom, not a cause, of the paralyzed, unreliable financial markets.
