CADTM-Newsletter: Indian labourers, France’s mobilisations, Illegitimate debts, Vulture funds…

NB: This is an excellent portal for regular political/economic commentary on world affairs. This one has many essays on South Asia. The generalised implosion of political institutions is a symptom of the endemic unsustainability of global capitalism. Unfortunately this state of affairs will continue (ie the ruling establishments will carry on with their ‘austerity economics’; violent conflict and chauvinist ideologies) unless they are confronted by democratic popular movements.
