¿Por qué no una auditoría ciudadana de todas las deudas?

DANIEL ALBARRACÍN / ECONOMISTA Y SOCIÓLOGO

2012-01-03_AlbarracinCuando se ha incrementado la deuda pública, ¿por qué no se alude a los rescates y recapitalizaciones bancarias; subvenciones al capital explícitos –como las de la industria a la automoción– e implícitos –como el sistema tarifario que se aplica a las compañías eléctricas–, o las desgravaciones, deducciones y exenciones fiscales al capital –en impuestos, en las cotizaciones sociales, etc.–?

Egypt – The “Cabinet Office” Massacre: A New Crime by the Sons of Mubarak in Power

Revolutionary socialists

The following statement was issued on 17 December by the Revolutionary Socialists in Egypt.

9 martyrs … 500 injured … this is the result of confrontations between the Egyptian Occupying Forces and the revolutionaries in a fresh attempt to bring the revolution to its knees and to bring back the Mubarak regime. And why not? After all, the leaders of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces are the sons of Mubarak, and they are loyal to their economic self-interests. The generals of SCAF control around 20 percent of the economy and are completely opposed to the interests of millions of working people who barely scrape a living. Most of them can’t find jobs which offer the chance of a decent life or even offer the hope of changing their lives for the better.
