A Giant Step Away From Democracy

Lots of people believe that democracy is being undermined.

Here's an example of how it's being done (thanks to David Malone).


It’s not often we get to witness the moment when a leader sells his nation for money. Such a moment occurred in Athens last week.

Financial Times turns to Lenin in desperation

Mark Carney isn’t due to move from being governor of the Bank of Canada to governor of the Bank of England until next July. But the intensity of the global economic crisis is so severe that policy makers can’t wait that long.
