Economic Policy, the Schwabian Housewife and Francois Hollande
"What is rational for individuals leads collectively into a cul-de-sac.. The fundamental error is that economic policy believes the crisis can be fought with the logic of a family budget. For that reason, the collapse of the euro zone threatens. Measures that restore trust in the future of the euro zone are necessary now.."

The War of Economists
"A seeming consensus among economists can virtually force the shaping of political opinions.. For 30 years, neoliberalism marginalized all other schools, above all Keynesianism, - and all of us hit a brick wall.. We must adjust for economic crisis years and for an epoch of indissoluble tensions, for confusion and trench warfare."

Two of the most cost-effective health providers in the United States—one a far-reaching insurance system, Medicare; the other a direct hands-on healthcare delivery system, the Veterans Administration—are run by the government."

The Loss of Respect of the Economic Elite is Enormous
The embedding of the market and the economy in the civil society is the problem of the 21st century. Tax havens or shelters in Liechtenstein and Switzerland must be closed. The wealthiest 400 Americans have more wealth than 150 million people. Time for Plan B, alternative economics, reduced working hours, community centers, labor-intensive work and infrastructures.

Economist criticizes "pathological allegience" to economic models
The crisis was born when Maggie Thatcher and then Bill Clinton deregulated the financial markets. The explosive force that was detonated was incalculable. Economics indirectly gave support because it provides models according to the motto: financial markets are never susceptible to crises. The banks function like clock work.

This understanding of the person-nature relation surpasses the rationalist model of rule over nature realized in capitalism's globalized praxis.

Economic ethics involves economic policy and fairness and goes beyond business ethics, profit maximization and shareholder value. We face an inept and corrupt political-economic system that converts private losses into public losses, represses alternatives, normalizes speculative fraud, bank bailouts, endless wars and turns education from a right to a privilege.

In the crisis, there was a paradigm based on the belief in unlimited economic growth on a planet with infinite resources. This paradigm identifies happiness with wealth, well-being with accumulation of material goods and progress with consumerism.

Newspapers were highly political. Those in favor of secession of the slave states were suppressed. They were put out of business. Lincoln was a Republican. Most of the suppressed editors returned to their profession. In their histories, neither Robert Chandler nor George Turnbull report any imprisonment of Oregon editors; the punishment was limited to suppression from the mails.
