Robert Reich is the chancellor’s professor of public policy at the University of California, Berkeley, and a senior fellow at the Blum Center for Developing Economies. He served as secretary of labor in the Clinton administration, and Time magazine named him one of the 10 most effective Cabinet secretaries of the 20th century. He has written 14 books, including the best-sellers Aftershock, The Work of Nations and Beyond Outrage and, most recently, Saving Capitalism. He is also a founding editor of  The American Prospect  magazine, chairman of Common Cause, a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and co-creator of the award-winning documentary  Inequality for All.  His latest documentary, „Saving Capitalism,“ is streaming on Netflix. Reich’s new book, „The Common Good,“ is available now

America has had its share of crooks (Warren G. Harding, Richard Nixon), bigots (Andrew Jackson, James Buchanan), and incompetents (Andrew Johnson, George W. Bush). But never before Donald Trump have we had a president who combined all these nefarious qualities.

America’s great good fortune was to begin with the opposite—a superb moral leader. By June of 1775, when congress appointed George Washington to command the nation’s army, he had already “become a moral rallying post,” as his biographer, Douglas Southall Freeman, described him. He was,“the embodiment of the purpose, the patience, and the determination necessary for the triumph of the revolutionary cause.” Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

Students are expected to pass a technology exam – even if they have no access to computers

A teacher in Ghana who educates his students on computer technology – without any computers – has become a hit online.

The man from Kumasi used his blackboard to meticulously draw a diagram of the popular Microsoft Word program.

„Teaching of ICT in Ghana’s school is very funny,“ he said in a Facebook post alongside the photos.

After the images were shared thousands of times online, Microsoft promised to send him new computer equipment.

In his Facebook message, Owura Kwadwo – a nickname for the man Quartz Africa identified as Richard Appiah Akoto – wrote: „I love my students so have to do what will make them understand what [I] am teaching.“ Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

Understanding Populism in Eastern Europe

Posted by hkarner - 14. Februar 2018


Eastern European populism differs from that in the West in important ways, owing to the region’s weak liberal tradition, which translates into ineffective checks and balances on government and shallow support for institutions such as freedom of expression and independent courts. Sławomir Sierakowski, the founder of the Krytyka Polityczna movement, explains.

How I learned to read — and trade stocks — in prison

Posted by hkarner - 7. Dezember 2017

https://www.ted.com/talks/curtis_wall_street_carroll_how_i_learned_to_read_and_trade_stocks_in_prison?Financial literacy isn’t a skill — it’s a lifestyle. Take it from Curtis „Wall Street“ Carroll. As an incarcerated individual, Carroll knows the power of a dollar. While in prison, he taught himself how to read and trade stocks, and now he shares a simple, powerful message: we all need to be more savvy with our money.

Ein Häftling führt hier sehr gut aus, dass mangelnde Kenntnisse insbesondere der finanziellen Zusammenhänge für viele der Anfang eines Leidensweges sind.  Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

Make Women a Priority

Posted by hkarner - 25. März 2017

Women the world over often find themselves on the bottom rung of the employment ladder looking up.  In low-income countries, the obstacles can be enormous.

In this podcast, Hilma Mote of the African Region’s International Trade Union Confederation talks about the challenges African women and youth face given the continent’s rapidly growing labor force.

Africa has a very young population compared to other regions in the world.  The continent has the largest number of people between the ages of 15 and 29, and the challenge for African governments is to provide opportunities to young people, particularly young women.

“If we don’t do anything to structurally transform African economies, to make sure jobs remain on the continent, it means that we are bringing up young people for labor on other continents.” Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

Is the EU dying? Watch George Friedman’s take in this video

Posted by hkarner - 26. Januar 2017

Europe matters. As John Mauldin said recently, in the not-too-distant future Europe, will likely be hit by a “very severe recession, which could push the US into recession if it happens too quickly.”

That’s why I sat down with Geopolitical Futures founder George Friedman to discuss his outlook for Europe in his just-released report, The World in 2017—his wall-to-wall forecast on global events we can expect this year.

Click below to see George’s take on a sickly European Union… the rot sneaking into two of its founding members… why Brussels bureaucrats are like bad teachers trying to control unruly students… and more.
