Young Workers in Free Fall: One-Third Under 35 Live With Parents

Art Levine, The Huffington Post: "So much for the economic independence that's supposed to come with young adulthood. But when unemployment among young men workers is the highest it's been in 61 years, as noted by New York Times columnist Bob Herbert, it's little wonder that workers under 35 are facing so many economic obstacles."

Bailout bank execs compensated nicely:

Big Bucks for Bailout Barons

By Katrina vanden Heuvel

One year after the global banking system collapsed the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) 16th Annual Executive Excess report -- "America's Bailout Barons" -- shows that the perverse system of executive compensation which contributed to the financial meltdown is still thriving for top bailout recipients.

How Bad Will It Get?

By Mike Whitney

The best-informed market participants believe that the 6-month rally is beginning to fizzle out. The consensus is that stocks are grossly overpriced and the fundamentals are weak. Bernanke's strategy has improved the equity position of many of the larger financial institutions but, unfortunately, there's been no spillover into the real economy.

US's 'Arc of Instability' Just Gets Bigger

By Pepe Escobar

The full spectrum dominance doctrine requires the control of the Pentagon-coined "arc of instability" from the Horn of Africa to western China. The cover story is the former "global war on terror", now "overseas contingency operations" under the management of President Barack Obama's administration.

Workfare oder Workfair?

Beitrag von GEG vom 31. August 2009 bei Thomas Trueten
//www.trueten.de/archives/5313-Workfare-oder-Workfair.html

Aus dem Text: „�Workfair statt Workfare muss die Devise lauten, welche,
Erwerbslose und Arbeitnehmer zukünftig fordern müssen. Dazu müssen sie
aber endlich aus ihrer Lethargie herauskommen etwas unternehmen ,
aufbegehren und sich einem Kampf stellen, welcher noch nicht mal richtig
begonnen hat. Hartz IV war nur der Vorbote, sozusagen zum gewöhnen an
einen erbarmungslosen Kapitalismus, welcher zum Schluss wirklich nur noch
die Alternative „friß oder stirb“ übrig lässt.“

Suizid und neue Leiden am Arbeitsplatz

Artikel von Alexandra Rau in WIDERSPRUCH 56 (pdf) – Exklusiv im LabourNet Germany! Wir danken der Redaktion! //www.labournet.de/diskussion/arbeitsalltag/gh/rau.pdf

Aus dem Text: „ Nach Dejours konnte so schließlich auch der Umgang mit Überlastung potenziell zu kollektivem Widerstand führen. Heute hingegen sei dies aufgrund von neuen Formen der Arbeitsorganisation, wie Zielvereinbarungen, Total Quality Management und der Evaluierung von Leistung u.a.m., nicht mehr möglich. Solidarität sei hier als Praxis verschwunden. Und zwar deshalb, weil diese neuen Formen der Arbeitorganisation zur Dynamik einer strukturellen „Zwangsindividualisierung“ führten, deren Effekt darin bestehe, Beschäftigte praktisch voneinander zu isolieren. Damit verknüpft seien neue Leiden, die Menschen unter diesen Arbeitsbedingungen dazu zwängen, Schutzmechanismen zu entwickeln, die nicht zuletzt darin bestünden, das Leiden anderer nicht mehr wahrzunehmen. Es fehlt eine Sprache des Leidens, die am Arbeitsplatz gesprochen wird und verstanden werden kann. Es fehlt jedoch auch an kollektiven Formen und Praktiken, dieses Leiden anders als durch Selbstmord sichtbar zu machen und es als gesellschaftliches zu politisieren;

WIDERSPRUCH Heft 56 (240 S., Fr. 25.-) ist dem Thema Krankheit / Gesundheit gewidmet mit über 25 Beiträgen zu den Aspekten der Sozial-, Arbeits- und Gesundheitspolitik, die wie immer auch auf aktuelle Analysen und Debatten Bezug nehmen und intervenieren.

Deleting the Bush Personality Cult from history

Salon
by Glenn Greenwald

09/02/09

[H]uge swaths of the right-wing movement were devoted to an unprecedented veneration of George Bush. A whole industry on the Right was created to convert him into a warrior-deity, including truly creepy reverence books by National Review writers �. Some on the Right actually speculated that God intervened in our elections because he had hand-picked Bush to be our leader. Even Bill Kristol admitted that the GOP had turned into little more than a Bush-centered personality cult, telling the New York Times: ‘Bush was the movement and the cause.’ More than any single, discrete issue, what motivated me to begin writing about political issues was the warped climate of hero worship constructed — by the Right and the media — around George Bush as a ‘War President.’ If you search long enough on the Internet, can you find examples of random people or vapid celebrities guilty of excessive Obama worship? Obviously. One can find virtually anything using those methods. But the personalized veneration of George Bush, particularly during his first term, was systematic and engulfing...

An empire of consumption

Daily Reckoning
by Byron King

09/01/09

The big problem — obviously, the headline issue — with the US economy is too much debt. (That’s the BIG problem. There’s a long list of other problems after that.) And the debt problem is getting worse, not better. Debt is ubiquitous across US society. Debt permeates the culture. Practically the whole nation has bitten off more than it can chew. Within the past two generations, the US economy has transformed from what Harvard historian Charles Maier calls an ‘empire of production’ (which is what won the Second World War, for example) to an ‘empire of consumption...

New bull, new bubble, new meltdown?

MSN MarketWatch

09/01/09

Something’s in the air. You can feel it. A new bull. Hype? Maybe, but also a roaring new bull — and eventually another meltdown. Television is a metaphor for our cycles, so see how America’s becoming a huge ratings competition. Yes, Americans want another bull, another bubble, even another meltdown. Guess what? It’s already here, folks. The next big market-economic-business cycle has arrived ahead of schedule. This is what makes us America. We love challenges, risk-takers and winners. The nobody who suddenly becomes a big somebody is the biggest of all TV metaphors for who we are...

Living in a Culture of Cruelty: Democracy as Spectacle

Henry A. Giroux, Truthout: "Under the Bush administration, a seeping, sometimes galloping, authoritarianism began to reach into every vestige of the culture, giving free rein to those anti-democratic forces in which religious, market, military and political fundamentalism thrived, casting an ominous shadow over the fate of United States democracy. During the Bush-Cheney regime, power became an instrument of retribution and punishment connected to and fueled by a repressive state, a bullying rhetoric of war, a ruthless consolidation of economic forces and an all-embracing free-market apparatus and media-driven pedagogy of fear that supported and sustained a distinct culture of cruelty and inequality in the United States."

US Extends Iraq Contract for Blackwater Firm

Matthew Lee, The Associated Press: "State Department officials said Wednesday they have extended a contract with a subsidiary of the security firm once known as Blackwater USA despite the fact the company is not allowed to work in the country. Three officials said the contract with Presidential Airways to provide air support for US diplomats was temporarily extended because the firm chosen to replace it is not yet ready to take over. The contract was due to expire on September 3 and be taken over a day later by DynCorp International."
