An open space for global conversation
What is happening in Greece is of great relevance to us in the US. We may very well find ourselves in a similar situation. This piece by Mark Ames highlights how a powerful anti-democratic impulse drives the decision-making around spending there.
I've been following Ames for quite some time, from his days at the Moscow-based shock publication, Exile. As usual, I don't like the tone of his writing, and at the same time he raises important questions about how decisions are made and who is making the decisions on so-called austerity.
