The Return of Inflation: Realities, Perceptions, Politics

Mié, 05/18/2022 - 21:40 -- bacosta

Headlines are abuzz with the return of inflation, which, according to some measures, is now reaching 40 year highs. Considering that vanquishing inflation is supposed to be the one undisputed achievement of neoliberalism, why is it rising? Many explanations – from excessive money creation to disrupted supply chains to tightening labour markets and a post-lockdown surge in demand are offered.

The view that it would be a short term affair is giving way to a more sobering assessment of its persistence, particularly since geopolitical conflict gave inflation a booster shot. As for its solution, one thing is clear, dealing with it as Paul Volcker famously did in the late 1970s is not a politically affordable option for governments beholden to elites whose outrageous fortunes depend on low interest rates.

This panel will seek to examine this phenomenon by asking question such as why is inflation rising? Can we expect it persist? What are the major policy-options being discussed and what are their political implications of each? How should socialists think about this new problem?

Eurasia and Latin America in Bipolar Multilateralism

Vie, 05/13/2022 - 20:22 -- bacosta

The contemporary international scenario calls for regionalisms that are appropriate to the political reality of states. The construction of a region is not limited to the dominant vision promoted by the West and the European Union (EU) model. Eurasian and Latin American integration projects and their transcontinental relationship have become more dynamic recently. The People's Republic of China (PRC) and the Russian Federation are key actors in this process. Contemporary multilateralism is heterogeneous and bipolar.

El escenario internacional contemporáneo exige regionalismos adecuados a la realidad política de los Estados. La construcción de una región no se limita a la visión dominante promovida por Occidente y el modelo de la Unión Europea (UE). Los proyectos de integración euroasiática y latinoamericana, al igual que la relación transcontinental, se han dinamizado en los últimos años; en este proceso, la República Popular China (RPC) y la Federación de Rusia son actores clave.

Can American-led Global Financial Capitalism Survive?

Vie, 05/13/2022 - 14:23 -- bacosta

Trust in the U.S.-led economic and geopolitical order has been eroding. The Russian invasion of Ukraine and the U.S. response to it, whatever its merits, may be the last straw for the global monopoly of the dollar-reserve system.

In 2013, eight years before horned intruders stormed the United States Capitol in the name of a perverse freedom, Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass argued in his book Foreign Policy Begins at Home that the greatest threat to American security comes not from abroad but within.

China: the leap to the Americas' playing field.

The People's Republic of China (PRC) opened the doors of its economy to the world in 1990, leaving behind its 20th-century policy of autarky. It is Chinese foreign policy to safeguard the common interests of humanity, promote multilateralism, and establish a fair and rational international political and economic order. It also protects the world's diversity and advocates the democratisation of international relations and the diversification of development models.

La República Popular China (RPC) abrió las puertas de su economía al mundo en 1990, dejando su política de autarquía del siglo XX.

La tasa de inflación anual en EE. UU. alcanzó 8.4 % en marzo de 2022, la más alta en cuatro décadas. América Latina se estremece al recordar cómo se controló la inflación de aquella época ¿Existen las condiciones para un nuevo choque Volcker? ¿Qué es diferente cuatro décadas después?
