  • Renovación de Europa: Por una política industrial socio-ecológica común en Europa

  • 18 Mar 15
  • Mientras que la crisis continúa y la producción de la mediana industria en la Unión Europea permanece por debajo del nivel previo a la crisis, el paquete “Empleo, crecimiento e inversión” de la Comisión Europea y las medidas anunciadas por el Banco Central Europeo carecen cruelmente de ambición para superar los desafíos a los que se enfrenta la Unión Europea. SYRIZA recibió la orden clara de oponerse a la política europea para la gestión de la crisis y de proponer un camino nuevo para Europa, abriendo así las vías hacia un nuevo modelo de desarrollo ecológicamente durable y socialmente útil. Este llamado, iniciado por el diputado alemán Axel Troost y firmado por numerosos economistas, sindicalistas y políticos europeos, pretende ser una contribución al debate sobre esta cuestión en Europa.

  • The death of international development

  • Por Jason Hickel | 10 Mar 15
  • The European Union decided to focus on the development in 2015 with the event "2015 European Year of Development". It's a good opportunity to deal with the European Union's external action and its failures. As Jason Hickel wrote in this ‘Development’ has failed to deliver. The reason is that organisations have failed to address the structural drivers of poverty.

  • Reading The Greek Deal Correctly

  • Por James K. Galbraith | 01 Mar 15
  • On 20 February, as news of the Brussels deal came through, Germany claimed victory and it is no surprise that most of the working press bought the claim. They have high authorities to quote and to rely on. Thus from London The Independent reported: “several analysts agreed that the results of the talks amounted to a humiliating defeat for Greece.”
