Sharing as human nature

Redistribution via the tax code, progressives on both sides of the Atlantic are realizing, only takes us so far. We need to start limiting inequality before it can dig in, writes Sam Pizzigati for Inequality.org. In the United States, back during the Great Depression, three simple words animated a grassroots upsurge ...
Migrants around the world are facing new barriers to humanitarian aid and public services as some governments have criminalized or sought to limit efforts to help refugees, sometimes in a bid to deter migration—and often in violation of human rights, according to a new report (pdf) by the International Red Cross. ...
Wir sind so lange nicht in der Lage uns ein ernsthaftes neues ökonomisches Paradigma für die Verwaltung der gemeinsamen Ressourcen der Erde vorzustellen, bis wir nicht zuerst die Notwendigkeit einer psychosozialen Transformation in unserem Bewusstsein erfassen.

Come possiamo creare la consapevolezza che la condivisione è la soluzione alla crisi planetaria, e la nostra speranza per recuperare un mondo diviso? Il nocciolo di questa domanda è il problema degli “ismi”, che sono l’intellettualizzazione del nostro auto-compiacimento che così giustifica e normalizza la sua...
The global economy is in crisis. The exponential exhaustion of natural resources, declining productivity, slow growth, rising unemployment, and steep inequality, forces us to rethink our economic models.

One year into the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, the most pressing question is whether the Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be implemented in ways that are universal and integrated, and that protect and even extend human rights – a potential contained in its scope and ambition – or...
Arguing that only a positive and truly transformative economic agenda will be sufficient to overcome the Republican congressional majority and President Donald Trump, scores of progressive leaders this week endorsed a bold 11-point platform that calls for Medicare for All, tough Wall Street regulation, and a ban on...
Although wealthy nations like the US and UK satisfy the basic needs of their citizens, they do so at a level of resource use that is far beyond what is globally sustainable. If all seven billion or more people are to live well within the limits of our planet, radical changes are required based on a fairer sharing of...

‘Latin America returns to the global economy’.

Tu ed io costituiamo il sistema stesso che incolpiamo per i problemi del mondo, illustrato chiaramente a Natale quando derubiamo la nostra fragile terra nei negozi del centro in nome di Gesù. Quale modo migliore per celebrare la nascita di Cristo quest’anno che unirsi sotto la bandiera della libertà e della giustizia...
In a new analysis (pdf) published that throws into stark relief the "unjust and unsustainable" nature of what economists have termed the New Gilded Age, the Swiss financial firm UBS found that the wealth of the world's billionaires grew by 17 percent in 2016, bringing their combined fortune to a record $6 trillion -...
When companies don’t pay their fair share of tax, it hits the world’s poorest people the hardest – depriving their governments of money that could be spent on vital services like hospitals, schools and clean water. Without these, people in developing countries simply don’t have a fair chance of overcoming poverty,...
