Chomsky on the Commons | David Bollier
Noam Chomsky recent gave a meaty talk, “Destroying the Commons:  On Shredding the Magna Carta” that shows how fragile the rights of commoners truly are. Achieved after enormous civil strife, the Magna Carta supposedly guaranteed commoners certain civic and procedural rights.  A companion document, the Charter of the Forest later incorporated into the Magna Carta, expressly guarantees commoners stipulated rights to access and use forests, land, water, game and other natural resources for their subsistence.

Broken Power Lines : Interview with Wendy Brown
"That is an interesting question because it assumes that neoliberalism produces despair. I wish it did but I am not convinced that it does. I think that the process that some of us have called neoliberalization actually seizes on something that is just a little to one side of despair that I might call something like a quotidian nihilism. By quotidian, I mean it is a nihilism that is not lived as despair

Steven Pearlstein - Key to job growth, equality is boosting tradable sector of economy
"In short, what ails the U.S. economy is primarily a structural problem, not a cyclical one that can be effectively dealt with through the magic of short-term Keynesian stimulus. Unless we find a way to dramatically increase the size and scope of the tradable sector, Spence says, we're in for an extended period of slow job growth and rising inequality. And make no mistake: at the heart of this problem is globalization."

Mosh Pit Diplomacy - NYTimes.com
"The would-be foreign policy prodigy Parag Khanna made a splash with his first book, “The Second World,” in 2008, by announcing with great fanfare — including a lengthy adaptation in The New York Times Magazine — what everyone already knew: that the international order was changing. The book was Khanna’s version of the fall of the West and the rise of the rest. Having described this grave new world, Khanna now wants to tell us how to run it. The result is another easy, breezy book that dispenses platitudes as though they were original insights and in the process fails to examine their actual significance. "

The Rise of the New Global Elite - Magazine - The Atlantic
"It is perhaps telling that Blankfein is the son of a Brooklyn postal worker and that Hayward—despite his U.S. caricature as an upper-class English twit—got his start at BP as a rig geologist in the North Sea. They are both, in other words, working-class boys made good. And while you might imagine that such backgrounds would make plutocrats especially sympathetic to those who are struggling, the opposite is often true. For the super-elite, a sense of meritocratic achievement can inspire high self-regard, and that self-regard—especially when compounded by their isolation among like-minded peers—can lead to obliviousness and indifference to the suffering of others.

2. Space. Pervasive Simultaneity and the Financialization of Everyday Life | varnelis.net
Two shows of architecture at the Museum of Modern Art-"Light Construction" of 1996 and the "Unprivate House" of 1999-inaugurate the supermodernism in architecture and design that marks network culture...This new modernism lacks any desire for complexity or linguistics, instead demonstrating fascination with simple shapes, with materials and transparency, with the performance of the structure itself..

But this is happiness for the few. Stripped of its utopian aspiration, supermodernism has become a sink for overaccumulated wealth. Worker housing has all but vanished, often literally dismantled or privatized. Instead, network culture is marked by the luxury condominiums and cultural centers (museums, concert halls) that rose across global cities worldwide during the real estate boom of the 2000s.

MIT Press Journals - World Policy Journal - Fall 2010
Is there, as
World Policy Journal suggests in every issue, a truly global network of creativity—not
only in the written word, but in art, drama, music, film, television and beyond? The
answers arrived and the results, we believe, will surprise and entertain. For the first time
in our quarter century as a publication, we consider poetry, music, painting, internet art,
film from Nigeria, plays from Peru—the entire gamut of human creativity—to arrive at
the conclusion we suspected from the start: That today, for perhaps the first time in human
history, a Global Canon has arrived.

NPQ - Pandemics and the Planet of Slums
by Mike Davis. "Using conservative definitions by the United Nations Habitat office, there are today 1 billion people living in slums globally. A slum is defined by substandard housing with insecurity of tenure and the absence of one or more urban services and infrastructure—sewage treatment, plumbing, clean water, electricity, paved roads and so on."

Dani Rodrik's weblog: Are the good times really over?
Note by contrast that the period of gung-ho globalization, which we may date from the early 1990s on, presented no improvement over the preceding post-war arrangements.
