It has since been recognized as one of the world's most influential political manuscripts. Commissioned by the Communist League, it laid out the League's purposes and program. It presents an analytical approach to the class struggle (historical and present) and the problems of capitalism, rather than a prediction of communism's potential future forms.

No drumbeat resonates like the mobilization of public opinion for war. In 2008 and 2009, policy elites around the world prepared for US re-entry to the global climate debate. These short narrative bursts capture the heady aspirations of the time, tracing the strategic perimeter of energy initiatives that soon turned comatose – a “weird and unintended prequel” to the exuberant 21 Machetes.

The Manifesto of the Communist Party was drafted as its party program by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels in Brussels at the order of the second congress of the League of Communists (December 2-8, 1847) The Manifesto marked the end of a year-long discussion within the League of the Just about the objectives and methods of proletarian emancipation and implied the conclusion of its transformation into the League of Communists. In Marxist literature this publication, which marked a milestone in the theoretical evolution of Marx and Engels and reflected the crucial principles of their world view in a relatively self-contained and complete form, is held to be the birth certificate of scientific socialism, which was fundamentally distinct from utopian socialism. Brought into its final version by Marx, it undoubtedly was the most brilliant and widely read writing of Marx and Engels; thanks to its down-to-earth analysis of society with its concise and cogent portrayal of a humanizing-liberating perspective for workers and the urgent demands for a revolutionary transformation of society. It was the most effective and most widely read publication of the modern working-class movement.

The ultimate goal of the policy should be the elimination of all nuclear weapons by every nation, including Israel, within ten years.Resolution of the existing crisis requires a clear understanding of the history of the Iranian people and the steps and missteps that have led to the crisis.

Publisher: Donald R. Miklich

This essay is a non-economists’ (there’s not a bit of math in it) inquiry into the US employment losses which have been happening for about a half century. Businesses have been reducing workers and their pay in order to increase shareholder profits. Many ways have been used to do this, but more and more computers and robotics are replacing workers. Well informed economists fear that in a decade or two such automation may eliminate almost half of US jobs! The worker reduction practice has been justified by economic theory which claims (though with dubious supporting evidence) that it maximizes productivity. This book argues that, even if this claim is correct, the practice damages the economy and the nation. Our economy is already massively productive, abundantly supplying our needs and desires. As the book title implies, no one needs nor wants such totally superfluous things as 1001 sex positions. Therefore, for the highly productive US economy to focus on more productivity is neither useful nor reasonable. The enormous US economy can provide a sufficiency for everyone, but only if everyone has a means of purchasing what is produced. To do this Americans need and want jobs and income. By diminishing workers’ incomes, and especially by diminishing the number of workers, this profits/productivity emphasis reduces consumer demand, thereby damaging the economy. Ultimately, and paradoxically, sacrificing jobs and incomes to increase productivity is self-defeating. Ultimately, job losses must diminish productivity simply because the workers who make things are also the consumers who buy them, and without jobs and income there will be no one to buy whatever is produced. Poorer workers weakens demand; fewer jobs destroys it. Continuing to place profits and productivity above workers threatens the possibility of an economic collapse worse than the 1930’s Great Depression. Yet no business dare not follow the jobs reductions practice since they might be driven out of business by competitors who do follow it. The economy therefore seems to be on the brink of a disaster. Some economists and others have suggested that, to prevent this, the government should give every citizen a minimal income; no questions asked; no work required. This essay gives several reasons why this suggestion is a bad idea. Instead it offers an idea for a program which will sustain jobs and worker income. If this idea can be developed and implemented it could help preserve the economy from the damage which the emphasis on profits and productivity has caused.

Beyond the political typology it embodies, Syria also provides the best case study of what has happened in the Arab world, and thus in the Middle East, during the last half-century. When it gained independence, Syria was a democratic country with a seemingly bright future. Blessed with fertile land and ample resources, Syria boasted good relations with the West as well as an energetic, entrepreneurial middle class. Yet a combination of radical intellectuals, militant ideologies, and ambitiously politicized military officers pushed Syria down a different path which has led to turmoil and disaster.

Barry Rubin - The Arab States and the Palestine Conflict artwork The Arab States and the Palestine Conflict
Barry Rubin
Genre: Politics & Current Affairs
Publish Date: 07 February 2013
Publisher: Barry Rubin
Seller: Smashwords, Inc.

Hundreds of books and thousands of articles have been devoted to the history and contemporary course of the Arab-Israeli conflict. The confrontation within Palestine, the participation of Great Britain, the United States, and the United Nations, and the impact of these events on Jews and Palestinian Arabs have all been endlessly chronicled. Surprisingly little attention, however, has been devoted to the question of how the Arab states entered the battle in the first place. In addition to tracing the events involved in the growing intervention by Arab states in Palestine, this book attempts to analyze two specific issues. How did internal conditions in the various Arab countries affect their involvement in Palestine? How did the network of alliances and conflict among the Arab governments shape their Palestine policies? How can one hope to understand the conflict without exploring this essential dimension? If Arab nations have spilled so much passion, spent many lives and so many billions of dollars over this issue—and remain willing to do so—the tale of how they arrived at this position must be a compelling and revealing one. This story should be expected to revea important principles of international relations and of the connections between domestic politics and foreign policy. In this sense, the 1948 Arab-Israeli war and Israel’s independence represent not only a beginning but also an end. These developments marked the failure of diplomacy and indirect intervention by the Arab states. They seemed to mark as inevitable an evolution of affairs which might often have taken alternative paths. The remnants of pre-1948 ideas and relationships continued to play an important role until 1956. By then, the collapse of the old order, the rise of a new type of Arab leader and of a new model of Arab politics gained the ascendancy. Yet the importance of the Palestine issue and the distinct roles and attitudes of the different Arab states had been largely set through their earlier experiences. One other point should be especially stressed here. Analysts and scholars often explain some aspect of an Arab government’s foreign policy by presenting it as an attempt to distract public attention from domestic problems. In this light Arab rulers are seen as the masters and manipulators of their political culture. On the contrary, given the powerful and widely accepted premises of Islam and of Arabism, Arab leaders themselves are often seriously constrained. The failure to take certain actions, which may be dangerous and against their personal or national interests, will expose them to the campaigns of domestic and foreign rivals. The ruler may become the subject and even the victim of such necessities. This theme will constantly reappear in the study, and it is an important component in the inner logic of Arab politics. When the research for this book began I confided my plans to an Arab historian. The idea was, I explained, to write about the efforts of the Arab states over Palestine, particularly in the pre-1948 period. “Oh,” he replied with a cynical smile, “they really didn’t do very much.” I hope this book will convince him otherwise.

“Five Years After the Crash: What Americans Think about Wall Street, Banks, Business, and Free Enterprise” examines public opinion in the immediate aftermath of the 2008 crash and in the years since.  How have attitudes changed toward America’s financial system? By comparing hundreds of survey questions from major pollsters, we provide an informative account of how Americans felt about business five years ago and how they feel now. Much of the blame for the crisis was directed at large financial institutions, typically lumped in the public mind as “Wall Street.” How deep-seated is public frustration? Did the anger toward Wall Street spread to other sectors of the business world? Has confidence been restored? This ebook surveys a variety of polling data to answer those questions.  Other major topics include confidence in banks, preferences on government regulation of business, and the health of the free enterprise system. Every poll cited in the text is included in the appendix.

The following nine articles are Speculations, by no means altogether recommendations. They are from Political Economy, i. e. they have nearly all of them been suggested by considering mere propositions of Political Economy. Some of them are old, or given me by friends: some are, I believe, new: these many persons will set aside as unpractical or impracticable, as that is the approved word by which people indicate that an idea is new to them. The topics of the nine articles have been largely taken from those now under political discussion, but they can hardly be called ephemeral; and, though they do not form a treatise, they will hardly be called disconnected. As they are speculations, no trouble has been taken to work out suggestions in detail, or give the shillings and pence correctly.

The Branding of the BRICS: How the newest global “brand” is challenging the international geopolitical order. A master’s thesis by Jill Richardson. Abstract:   The extraordinary growth of emerging economies over the past few decades has been written about and analyzed from numerous angles. Scholars have sought to unpack the “rise of the rest” from geopolitical, security and economic standpoints for some time. One area that has yet to be fully examined, however, is the messaging put forth by the increasingly powerful emerging world. The BRICS in particular have been quite strategic in this regard, working together through shared institutions to brand themselves as the collective leadership of the emerging world. Additionally, the BRICS have leveraged these institutions to espouse an ideology that, while not as dichotomous as the capitalism vs. communism rift of the Cold War, still offers a distinct and alternative model to that provided by the hegemonic west. These distinctions can be characterized by an emphasis on neodevelopmentalism, state sovereignty and multipolarity. By offering a competing “brand” alternative, particularly in the wake of the oftentimes perceived failure of the western “brand” of development, the BRICS are implicitly challenging the “marketshare” of the western world’s developmental ideology. Where this brand battle will play out will likely be amongst global governance institutions, as well as in the opinions and allegiances of fellow emerging economies. The results of this emergent challenge will ultimately dictate the global power structure for years and decades to come.
