by Vuk Vukovic
 sub-topic» General

Yesterday, at the age of 103, one of the greatest minds of our time, Nobel prize winner and emeritus professor at University of Chicago Law School Ronald Coase passed away.

His contributions to and influence on economic science are of monumental importance.

An Open Letter to Bradley Manning
by Lawrence M. Ludlow
 sub-topic» General

I hope you know that you are in a long line of heroes, and your name will live far beyond that of anyone who imprisons you – all of them forgettable because of their faceless, nameless banal cruelty – which is so common that it is as forgettable as yesterday’s dirt. You are not forgettable. They can put you in a hole and try to hide you from the world, but your light shines out of it and acts as inspiration. You already know that Edward Snowden was inspired by you to expose even more lies, and he is making a laughing stock out of Obama and his supporters as well as the Republicans who are identical in their twisted behaviors.

I am not the least bit surprised that our government has plans to extradite him from wherever they can catch him, and then drag him through a ridiculous kangaroo court before slamming him in prison. It is too late to prevent people from learning about the vast domestic surveillance project, so the government’s only remaining course of action is to vilify the one person brave enough to tell us the truth. Our hero, Edward Snowden.

Alexander Cockburn and the Radical Power of the Word
by John Nichols
 sub-topic» General

His last column for The Nation was a delicious takedown of all the dark players involved in the scheme by the biggest bankers in the world to fix rates. The bankers got their due, of course, but so did the regulators and, of course, the pliant media. “Now it turns out that the whole thing is a fix—a grimy hand all too visible,” Alex wrote. “Is is possible to reform the banking system? There are the usual nostrums—tighter regulations, savage penalties for misbehavior, a ban from financial markets for life. But I have to say I’m dubious. I think the system will collapse, but not through our agency.”
