New on "ideas & action": "Workers power not bureaucrats' power..."
ideas and action has posted a new article: Workers’ power not bureaucrats' power: lessons from Argentina' By Jonathan Payn, South Africa Around the world the ruling class (capitalists, politicians and state managers) is trying to restore its profits by making the working class pay for the economic crisis.

States help capitalists do this, among other things, by increasing interest rates while giving corporations tax cuts, commercialising and privatising state owned enterprises and outsourcing the provision of basic services.
