Journals December 2013 - Implosion of the European System
Written by Samir Amin   
Friday, 20 December 2013

Majority opinion holds that Europe has all it takes to become an economic and political power comparable to, and consequently independent of, the United States. The simple addition of its component populations with its GDP makes that seem obvious. As for me, I believe that Europe suffers from three major handicaps that rule out such a comparison.

Journals December 2013 - Confronting a Decrepit Imperialist Monster
Written by Antonio Tujan Jr.   
Friday, 20 December 2013

Three years since the declaration by international economic institutions such as the IMF and the OECD that global recession in 2008 has ended in 2010, the absence of recovery has befuddled imperialist apologists and economists alike.  So-called “post-recession” recovery by industrialized countries like US, UK and Japan remains very weak, seemingly teetering on the brink of another recession despite spending hundreds of billions of dollars to bail out banking and other financial institutions and various efforts at pump priming to fund recovery. 

The creeping effect of this “non-recession” has not spread further to the economic heartland of Europe, as countries like France and Germany do not face the threat of recession.  On the other hand, many Eurozone countries such as Greece and Spain continue to bear the brunt of depression, as their sovereign debts crises remain unsolved and now threaten to infect even major industrial powers like Italy.

  I would like to take this opportunity to address four related questions: First, can China rise to become a so-called “developed” country in the era of imperialism? Second, if it can, why can’t other Third World countries? Third, what does the rise of China mean for the people of China? And finally, what does the rise of China mean for the people of the world?
