What's New: New report shows Harper government's economic record to be the worst in Canada's post-war history

| July 31, 2015

With Canada possibly slipping into another recession, a new comprehensive review of the economic record of Stephen Harper's Conservative government paints a damning portrait of nearly a decade of economic failure.

What's New: Public sector employment in Ontario is far below the rest of Canada

by Doug Allan | July 31, 2015

The suggestion that Ontario has a deficit because its public sector is too large does not bear scrutiny. Consider the following. Public sector employment has fallen in the last three quarters in Ontario. Since 2011, public sector employment has been pretty flat, with employment up less than 4 tenths of one percent in the first half of 2015 compared with the first half of 2011.

What's New: Save door-to-door, Stop Harper!

by Angela Jones | July 30, 2015

On December 11, 2013 Canada Post, with Harper's blessing, announced their 5 point plan which included the elimination of door to door, greater privatization of postal outlets, increase in postage, introduction of new work methods and reductions in employee compensation. The NDP and Green Party have come out for the restoration of home mail delivery to people who have lost it.

What's New: The Left and the euro: liquidate, rebuild

by Frédéric Lordon | July 30, 2015

To those people, sincerely of the Left, who have so long refused to see what an impasse the euro represents, as they foster the illusion of an improbable ‘balance of forces’ whose configuration could possibly be changed.

Books: Challenges Facing the Latin American Left

review by Steve Ellner | July 29, 2015

In this work, the prolific Chilean Marxist writer Marta Harnecker applies Marx's and Lenin's theories on socialist construction to twenty-first century Latin American left governments and at the same time points to the original aspects of the lessons drawn from those experiences. The book is divided into three parts: past developments such as the anti-neoliberal protests of the 1990s that helped change the political map in Latin America; the transition to socialism in Venezuela, Bolivia and Ecuador...

What's New: Russia, Ukraine and U.S. Hegemony

by Judith Deutsch | July 29, 2015

The Ukraine/Russia conflict is particularly ominous because tensions with the United States could escalate into a nuclear war. For this reason, it is necessary to understand NATO's role, patterns of U.S. domination and the nuclear arms race. The political world is dangerously in flux, with entangled military and economic alliances and a robust weapons trade. This is similar to the prelude to World War I when it took one trigger to unleash cascading inter-state violence.

What's New: USA: The State Murder of an Activist

by Justin Podur | July 29, 2015

By now, the facts are well known to millions, but it is worth going over them again. On July 10, a 28-year old woman, an activist with the Black Lives Matter movement, who had recently moved to Texas for a new job at a university, was being followed too closely by a speeding car on a highway. She changed lanes to get out of the driver's way, and that should have been the end of the story, a non-event in her life. But the driver, 30-year old Brian Encinia, was a police officer, and he put his flashing lights on and made her pull over.

What's New: Austerity Urbanism: The Neoliberal Crisis of American Cities

by Jamie Peck | July 28, 2015

Cities are sites of contestation. This has never been truer than today, with inequalities in the industrialized world rising to levels not seen in decades. Neoliberalism continues to reign -- in spite of its spectacular failures, most recently exemplified by the Great Recession of 2007-08 -- and austerity policies are the recipe du jour, marking a new stage in what David Harvey describes as 'accumulation by dispossession'.
