August, 2014

The international crisis in Ukraine, which has escalated into a civil war between pro-Russia separatists in the East and the pro-West government in Kiev, has taken a turn for the worse since the crash of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17.

The West on the wrong path

Posted by seumasach on August 9, 2014

The publication of this article could be a key moment in this unfolding crisis. It reveals not only German self-interest but German self-awareness, the latter a much rarer commodity amongst today’s nations.

Düsseldorf. Every war is accompanied by a kind of mental mobilization: war fever. Even smart people are not immune to controlled bouts of this fever. “This war in all its atrociousness is still a great and wonderful thing. It is an experience worth having“ rejoiced Max Weber in 1914 when the lights went out in Europe. Thomas Mann felt a “cleansing, liberation, and a tremendous amount of hope“.

LEAP 2020

27th July, 2014

When the BRIC launched their own club in 2009[1], their goal was pretty simple: to provide a group strong enough to initiate and drive the reform of the global governance institutions. This dynamic alliance intended to pursue their adjustment to the new realities of a multi-polar world in which they were the main actors : to reconcile voting weight and financial participation in the IMF[2] and the World Bank, to integrate the  constraints of the new powers in this WTO[3]“philosophy” and to involve the dollar in a basket of currencies of significant world economies in order to create a new international trading currency, a stronger and more representative[4] one…

2nd August, 2014

L’Argentine a été invitée à la dernière réunion des BRICS à Fortaleza, du 14 au 16 juillet 2014. A cette occasion, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, Présidente de l’Argentine, n’a pas évoqué, sauf à mots couverts, le défaut de paiement qui menaçait son pays. L’occasion aurait cependant été bonne pour elle de dénoncer le jeu des spéculateurs américains (notamment les fameux fonds vautours), soutenus par la législation des États-Unis, qui s’acharnent sur un pays fragile.
