februari 29, 2008. US declares EU independent!
Bold arrogance of power and disregard -if not contempt- for
the public, by the failing United States. US ambassador to
NATO, Victoria Nuland, recognizes EU defense-autonomy:
"Washington no longer has a problem with the
European Security and Defence policy"
Sweet Crude Curse sudden wealth & cheap oil terror...
the paradox of plenty Royal Dutch Disease.

When corporations have Permission to Steal: www.fairfield.edu
Dr. Lisa Newton, professor of philosophy and director of the Applied Ethics program in the Colleges of Arts & Sciences, has written a new book, Permission to Steal: Revealing the Roots of Corporate Scandal, published by Blackwell in November.
"It is the story of the scandals that brought down Enron, WorldCom, HealthSouth, and all of the other scandals to which we were subjected at the end of the 20th century, along with an explanation of how such things happened," Dr. Newton said. Delving into each scandal, Dr. Newton offers a fresh perspective on what went wrong and what needs to be done to prevent corporate corruption from reoccurring.
Identifying the root of the problem, Dr. Newton said, "It all started with Gyges' Ring." The mythical ring mentioned in Plato's Republic was known to make the wearer of it invisible. "Plato was convinced that if people had the power to be invisible they would do all sorts of terrible things. Sure enough, they did." In her book, she writes that we do not have Gyges' Ring in the real world, "but rings that do nothing more than make us invisible - offshore special purpose entities, Swiss banks, gated communities, and the general anonymity of the city - are everywhere we look, there for the purchasing. We need the accountability that comes with transparency, visibility, and access to information, to keep our corporations honest."
