Yanis Varoufakis: The EU cartel was designed to crush farmers – Rural workers didn’t stand a chance
Brave New Europe | Neo-Liberalism in the EU
by Mathew D. Rose
5d ago
Manos, a sixth-generation farmer from Thessaly, put it to me bluntly when I asked him to explain why he was prepared to drive his tractor 400km to Athens to camp outside Parliament: “If I don’t, my farm will soon follow our village school, co-op, post office and bank branch into oblivion.” His story is neither novel nor confined to Greece. We are accustomed to French farmers, in particular, blocking roads and exacting a significant price from politicians before returning to their home turf. Occasionally, an impressive stunt has been staged in Brussels — as in 2012 when a multinational farmers ..read more

Germany with its EU hegemony is forcing the union to adopt its self-harm policies Mathew D. Rose is an Investigative Journalist specialised in Organised Political Crime in Germany and an editor of BRAVE NEW EUROPE Every year in February the Germans celebrate their Carnival. It is an occasion where the Germans drop many of their inhibitions and simply celebrate. This is a time where the “little people” supposedly set the agenda, including their political perception. With regard to politics it is supposed to be slightly irreverent towards the establishment. On the other hand, it takes the pulse ..read more

John Feffer – How Can Workers Ensure the ‘Just Transition’ Is Truly Just?
Brave New Europe | Neo-Liberalism in the EU
by Mathew D. Rose
1M ago
The global economy is already undergoing its most fundamental transformation since the Industrial Revolution; if workers and trade unions are at the table negotiating the transition, the process has a greater chance of being equitable John Feffer is the director of Foreign Policy In Focus at the Institute for Policy Studies Cross-posted from Common Dreams Making a transition away from fossil fuels is going to require a lot of work. But there’s a real concern that it will also require a lot fewer workers. All of the workers in fossil fuel industries, for instance, are acutely aware that their ..read more

by Mathew D. Rose

With the death of Jacques Delors, president of the European Commission from 1985 to 1995, a chapter in European history has ended. The time has come to take critical stock of this decisive period and to draw lessons for the future, a few months ahead of the European elections of June 2024.

Thomas Fazi: Jacques Delors destroyed the European Left
Brave New Europe | Neo-Liberalism in the EU
by Mathew D. Rose

By the time the Delors Commission came to an end, in 1995, much of the groundwork for the techno-authoritarian and anti-democratic juggernaut that the EU would later become was laid — and, to a large degree, we have Delors, a French Socialist, to thank for that.

The Richer, The Poorer: How Britain Enriched The Few and Failed the Poor – A Two Hundred Year History by Stewart Lansley
Brave New Europe | Neo-Liberalism in the EU
by Mathew D. Rose
2M ago
Book Review by Mathew D. Rose Michael Hudson is one of the most brilliant political economists of our time. In his prodigious and prolific thinking one often encounters a thought, many just one sentence, that puts everything into a new perspective. In one of his many podcasts he maintained that since the Norman Conquest of Britain in 1066 the British people have never recovered their sovereignty or self-determination. If you look at today’s Britain’s wealthiest citizens, many trace their wealth, mainly through the possession of vast tracts of land, to this day. Until the middle of the 19th cen ..read more

The State of Capitalism: Economy, Society, and Hegemony by Costas Lapavitsas and the EreNSEP Writing Collective

by Mathew D. Rose

Book Review by Mathew D. Rose Upon finishing The State of Capitalism: Economy, Society, and Hegemony by SOAS economics professor Costas Lapavitsas and the other ten members of the EreNSEP Writing Collective my question was: why aren’t more books like this being written? If you are not an economist like me, but do a lot of reading concerning political economy, there are inevitably gaps in the information one acquires. This often results in being unable to connect the dots enabling one to recognise the big picture. Lapavitsas and his colleagues provide just such a complete analysis concerning wo ..read more

Amy Brown: Having a single parent doesn’t determine your life chances – the data shows poverty is far more important
Brave New Europe | Neo-Liberalism in the EU
by Ben Wray
3M ago
The right-wing press love to stigmatise single parenting but it’s not backed up by the evidence. Amy Brown is Professor of Child Public Health at Swansea University. Cross-posted from The Conversation Picture by Sigezy Numerous research studies have suggested that children from a single-parent family are worse off than those who have two parents at home. These findings chime with decades of stigma that have painted coming from a single-parent home as undesirable.  Understandably, you may find this worrying if you are a single parent – or if you’re thinking of embarking on parent ..read more
