” in a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
Global governance and global citizens surveillance are regularly discussed on alternative media but are almost completely ignored by the systemic ones. Lack of extensive discussion on these issues is indicative of people’s intellectual isolation.
It is also surprising that a great part of intelligentsia does not refer to global governance and surveillance either by ignorance or by a commitment to economism that dominates all discussions. …

The trolley problem was proposed by Philippa Foot in 1978 and is a moral dilemma. According to it, five people are in danger of being killed because a trolley is heading over them. People can be saved if the driver pulls the brake and the trolley goes into the side street. On the sidewalk, there is a man who if the trolley goes there, the man will be killed. …
The birth deficit concerns both demographers and economists. In my country (Greece), and I assume in other countries as well, the birth deficit is mainly treated with slogans and absurdities, avoiding a deeper analysis of the issue and its correlation with economic growth despite the fact that the age structure of the population impacts the economy.
Nous ne sommes pas exclus, nous sommes créatifs et désobéissants
“Nous pouvons exclure que les crises financières directes produisent en elles-mêmes des événements historiques clés. Tout ce qu’elles peuvent faire, c’est créer un environnement plus favorable à la diffusion de certaines façons de penser et de moyens concrets de poser et de résoudre les questions liées à l’ensemble du développement ultérieur de la vie nationale. “
Je faisais référence à l’article de la jeunesse attique “Ce qu’ils ont caché au peuple grec. Comment la NSA et Karttel imposent les statuts en Grèce! (CONSTANTINOS KARAMANLIS — ANDREAS PAPANDREOU: DEUX PROJETS NATIONAUX) “d’ après l’ouvrage d’Athanasios Striga” World Authorities “selon lequel l’une des nombreuses questions tragiques que les Américains devaient appliquer pour soutenir la montée en puissance d’Andreas Papandreou était “de mettre en œuvre une affaire secrète du peuple grec de la culture œcuménique du peuple grec, etc.”. …
Globalization with the free movement of capital has increased tax competition among countries. Enterprises relocate their headquarters to neighboring countries that offer incentives for business relocation such as tax breaks. This phenomenon is called “race to the bottom”.

Nikolai Kondratiev was a Russian economist who was executed by Stalin in 1938 because he was opposed to the collectivization of the earth and because he claimed that capitalism would always return and will never die.
Kondratiev became known for his famous waves that last 50–60 years and which consist of the expansion, the crisis and the contraction upon which capitalism is renewed.
Some may wonder why many economists are interested in scientific fields such as social psychology, sociology, anthropology and philosophy. This preoccupation, however, is not something new.
The convergence of sciences helps us to understand decision-making and to implement a more comprehensive strategy in the economy. A series of articles show the involvement of economics with other disciplines among them the studies of George Akerloff, a Nobel Prize-winning economist.
In his study “Economics and Identity”, Akerlof has raised the issue of identity in economic analysis by integrating it into a behavioral model and demonstrating that identity can affect economic outcomes. …
An argument that is prevailing in foreign investment discussion in Greece (and not only in Greece) is that labor costs are quite high (!) and therefore, they are deterrent to attracting foreign investment. In many cases, it is assumed that high labor cost may be the main obstacle to attracting foreign investment, possibly along with high taxation.

The factors for attracting foreign investment are not just labor costs. …
