By Michael Hudson and posted with the author’s permission As in a Greek tragedy whose protagonist brings about precisely the fate that he has sought to avoid, the US/NATO confrontation with Russia in Ukraine is achieving just the opposite of America’s aim of preventing China, Russia and their allies from acting independently of U.S. control over their trade and investment policy.

Michael Hudson: Keynote speech at the David Graeber anthropology conference in France

Posted with permission from Michael Hudson From Junk Economics to a False View of History What are the real roots of Western Civilization?

The Fed’s Austerity Program to Reduce Wages

By Michael Hudson and posted with the author’s permission Preface: The Federal Reserve Board’s ostensible policy aim is to manage the money supply and bank credit in a way that maintains price stability. That usually means fighting inflation, which is blamed entirely on “too much employment,” euphemized as “too much money.”[1] In Congress’s more progressive days, the Fed was charged with a second objective: to promote full employment. The problem

Is US/NATO (with WEF help) pushing for a Global South famine?

By Michael Hudson and posted with the author’s permission Is the proxy war in Ukraine turning out to be only a lead-up to something larger, involving world famine and a foreign-exchange crisis for food- and oil-deficit countries? Many more people are likely to die of famine and economic disruption than on the Ukrainian battlefield. It thus is appropriate to ask whether what appeared to be the Ukraine proxy war is
