The merciless exponential debt explosion

The Australian economist and author of "Debunking Economics" Steve Keen held a lecture 2008.01.31 at a meeting arranged by Attac in Trondheim .

Keen speaks about the exponential debt explosion, illustrated by the Australian and American cases with comments from Trond Andresen (NTNU)


KNOWLEDGEABLE: Steve Keen shows us through massive statistics how we are apparently moving towards a mayor economic crack in this one hour lecture.

Angry political hip-hop debate

If you look under my old Interview, an interesting (perhaps, or perhaps not) debate over the political role of hip-hop has emerged between me and Zearle (once known as Zearle of Red Dagger). Basically he thinks I am an uneducated sell-out, and I think he is a US-sentric sectarian. We're probably both right.

VVR - My Name is Nobody

Jepp, gutter og jenter. Det neste bidraget til Venstresida Videorull er Sergio Leones klassiske humoristiske westernfilm "My Name is Nobody" med Terence Hill og Henry Fonda. Musikken er som vanlig av Ennio Morricone. En klassisk spaghetti-western fra 1973 dette. Og ja, filmen er i public domain. Herlig!

Her er traileren:

VVR - Dragon - The Bruce Lee Story

Nå starter vi en ny serie her på venstresida.net - Venstresida VideoRull, hvor vi presenterer gode filmer som finnes gratis tilgjengelig på nett i ymse formater. Her vil vi vise både spillefilmer og dokumentarer av ymse slag. Dette gjør vi selvsagt for å bringe kunnskap, kultur og underholdning ut til folket, men også for å få fram det politiske poenget at informasjon og kultur skal være gratis ( http://omicron.leftist.net/?q=node/141 ).
