Debunking the Bogeyman: The power of the media pundits | Jul 29 2014 | Joyce Nelson | In 2012, Harper was (loudly) musing about cutting $24 billion to deal with the deficit (that he created). But even the CRAs said the cuts weren't necessary! The pundits? They didn't say a thing.
Win! Germany set to reject CETA over investor-state provision | Jul 29 2014 | Brent Patterson | The rejection by Germany is a significant development because, "All 28 members of the EU have to sign the agreement for it to take effect." It is also notable that Germany is Europe's largest economy.

Income inequality deniers launch a new offensive against Piketty's theories | Jul 28 2014 | Pierre Beaulne | It seems rather clear that the main theories in French economist Thomas Piketty's bestseller "Capital in the Twenty-First Century" are irritating a number of people.

Digging beneath the surface of Canadians' 'solid support' of CETA | Jul 25 2014 | Scott Harris | The results of a recent Angus Reid poll suggest that 68 per cent of Canadians support CETA. While on the surface, things look great for CETA, that top-level result doesn't tell the whole story.
You could drive one of those tar sands heavy haulers through the gaping holes in the latest Fraser Institute 'study' | Jul 25 2014 | David J. Climenhaga | We need to remember all the Fraser Institute produces is market-fundamentalist propaganda, and we are dangerously deluded when we decide to treat it as if it were serious economic research.
EI needs to increase access, not lower premiums | Jul 25 2014 | Angella MacEwen | The crisis in EI is forever falling on deaf ears. Even though only 37.5 per cent of unemployed workers are receiving EI, politicians feel that the problem with EI is not access, but high premiums.

Debunking the Bogeyman: Neoliberalism, austerity and economic agenda | Jul 24 2014 | Joyce Nelson | What happens when credit rating agencies downgrade nations' sovereign debt? It seems to force government to further deregulate, privatize and cave to right-wing neoliberal economic agenda.
