International Socialism Journal nr. 128, okt 10 – side 3
Note: Fiscal austerity is more and more securely locked into place in the advanced capitalist countries. This is despite all the signs that the world economy faces, at best, a weak and unsteady recovery. The financial markets spent the summer agonising over the probability of a double-dip recession. But Robert Reich, labour secretary under Bill Clinton, summed up the view of many economists of different political and intellectual allegiances who believe the data actually point to a grimmer reality.

Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 301, sep 10 – side 2
Note: Over hele Europa er vi i øjeblikket vidne til den største offensiv i mange år mod arbejderklassens levestandard.

Hver fjerde islænding har skrevet under på et krav om, at der holdes en folkeafstemning om regeringens betaling af 28 milliarder kroner til engelske og hollandske spekulanter.

International Socialism Journal nr. 124, okt 09 – side 7
Note: The derisory message of a four-page piece by journalist Andy Beckett in the Guardian’s G2 supplement in mid-August was that the far left had missed “the political opportunity presented by the financial crisis”. And there are a good number on the far left who think the Guardian was right.
