Transition: Economics

Reprinted from "An economics addition to The Transition Handbook by Rob Hopkins, Peter Lipman, Jules Peck, Ciaran Mundy and Steph Bradley", posted at

Since the first edition of the Transition Handbook was published, huge and far-reaching changes have begun unfolding in the world economy. For many, they are seen as the outcome of the end of the age of cheap oil, the inevitable result of the inability of a global economy addicted to oil unable to get its fix, and in particular a result of the oil price spike of July 2008, with speculators escalating oil to a high of $147 a barrel, a price at which, quite clearly, the world economy as we know it is unable to function.

The Nail In Our Economic Coffin

We Americans commonly refer to our system of government as a "great experiment," but we rarely look at our economic system in the same light.

Wichita State Sodexo resolution!


Here's some excerpts:

WHEREAS, As students and members of the campus community we have the right to know where the food served on our campus comes from and under what conditions it is produced, and the right to have a say in the contracting and procurement policies of our university; and [...]
WHEREAS, Major food service providers like Sodexo purchase a tremendous amount of tomatoes, serving them to students at schools across the country; and
WHEREAS, Florida tomato pickers are some of the most exploited workers in the country, suffering from sub-poverty wages, no overtime pay, and in the most extreme cases, modern-day slavery; and therefore be it resolved
RESOLVED, the Wichita State University Student Government Association urges Sodexo to meet with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, agree to pay a penny more per pound to directly improve Florida tomato pickers' wages, and, together with the CIW, implement an enforceable, human rights-based Code of Conduct for its tomato supply chain; and

You Know...

You know, one has to wonder if the jig is up. As the land of promises we have promised a chance at a new life and a beggining for anyone willing to work hard and abide by our laws. We have been seen as a land of justice standing against oppression within our own borders, and holding hope for those outside of them. We provided a voice for those without one around the world and where we could we helped. Well I suppose the jig isn't quite up as we are mostly still that.

Cyber-Attack in California 9 April 2009

On April 9, 2009, the city of Morgan Hill, California and parts of three counties lost 911 service, cellular mobile telephone communications, land-line telephone, DSL internet and private networks, central station fire and burglar alarms, ATMs, credit card terminals, and monitoring of critical utilities.The development of the internet's communications protocols was sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense, and they were designed to survive large failures.

Occupy, Resist, Produce: Factories Without Bosses

Beginning in 2001, Argentinean factory workers that had been fired from their jobs decided to take their jobs and their factories back.  Fighting against the former owners, the police and the government, these workers have reclaimed their right to work with dignity and without bosses. This is my undergraduate thesis that explores Argentina's occupied and recuperated factories and the history that led up to this unique social movement. This piece focuses on two factories, Brukman and Zanon, the most famous of the occupied factories.
