Monument to the Victims of Communism in Ottawa - Canada
Communist Sign the petition to support the building of a Monument to the Victims of Communism, in Ottawa, Canada

To: Parliament of Canada
While the horrors of Nazism are well known, who knows that the Soviet Union murdered 20 million people? Who knows that China's dictators have slaughtered an estimated 60 million? Who knows that the Communist holocaust has exacted a death toll surpassing that of all of the wars of the 20th century combined ? Just as we must grasp Communism's brutality, we must understand the true cause of this era's most significant event: the fall of the Soviet Union. While we believe that Vaclav Havel was right when he saw the fall of the Communist empire as an event on the same scale as the fall of the Roman Empire, it was not the end of Communism.

Boycott of Greek products in Albania
Boycott of Greek products in Albania!

Albanian nationalists, who accuse Greece of turning the country into a non-conventional colony of Greece, are using the protest to halt the rising power of Greece in the country. In 2006 Greek Imports reached EUR 406mn, while Greek investments are estimated at over EUR 400mn. Greek companies and businesses own substantial shares in the telecommunication, petroleum and financial markets in the country. Strong protests were organized by the "Cham" population, ethnic Albanians that used to live in the territory of current Greece till the end of World War II. Afterwards, they forcedly expelled from their properties. Therefore we call on you to Boycott greek products in Albania

USA Economy:

The great American slowdown

USA Economy
    The recession may not be as severe as many fear, but the recovery could take longer—and that is dangerous - The Economist

    AMERICANS are unaccustomed to recessions,
    American Economy
    particularly ones that involve shopping less. During the past quarter-century, the world's most powerful economy has suffered only two official downturns, in 1990-91 and 2001.

    Both were short and shallow. In 2001 consumer spending barely skipped a beat; a decade earlier it fell, but only briefly.

    Buoyed by rising asset prices and financial innovations that allowed ever more people to tap ever more debt, the collective American wallet has not snapped shut in almost two decades.

    That may be about to change. Evidence is mounting that the economy has slipped into recession—and this time consumer weakness is to the fore (see article). The doughty American shopper is being pummelled by four things: the housing bust, the credit crunch, higher fuel and food costs and, most recently, a weakening labour market. The unemployment rate rose to 5.1% in March, while the private sector lost jobs for the fourth month in a row.

USA Economy:

US deficits are falling but there is a price to pay

USA Economy

    IRWIN STELZER is a business adviser and director of economic policy studies at the Hudson Institute

    American Account

    YOU ASKED FOR IT. You’ve got it. We are at
    Economy
    the beginning of the adjustment of the worldwide “imbalances” that have so troubled policymakers. The American budget deficit, complained the seers, is a testimonial to the profligate ways of Congress and the president, and must be eliminated now that America is on course to satisfactory growth.

    Well, the deficit is coming down — and faster than even the critics anticipated. It seems that the president’s tax cuts have contributed to (not been solely the cause of) a spurt in tax receipts flowing from companies and high-income individuals into the Treasury’s coffers. Good news, you would think, until the mutterings start about the slowing effects on the economy of the tightening of fiscal policy.
    The other imbalance that has so concerned policymakers is America’s trade deficit, at about 7% of GDP simply “unsustainable”. Great news — the trade deficit seems to be coming down in response to a falling dollar that has made it more expensive for Americans to buy foreign goods and services, and less expensive for foreigners to buy made-in-USA products.

USA Economy:

Life After the Oil Crash

USA

    Civilization as we know it is coming to an end soon. This is not the wacky proclamation of a
    Oil Industry
    doomsday cult, apocalypse bible prophecy sect, or conspiracy theory society. Rather, it is the scientific conclusion of the best paid, most widely-respected geologists, physicists, and investment bankers in the world. These are rational, professional, conservative individuals who are absolutely terrified by a phenomenon known as global "Peak Oil."

    "Are We 'Running Out'? I Thought There Was 40 Years of the Stuff Left"

    Oil will not just "run out" because all oil production follows a bell curve. This is true whether we're talking about an individual field, a country, or on the planet as a whole.

    Oil is increasingly plentiful on the upslope of the bell curve, increasingly scarce and expensive on the down slope. The peak of the curve coincides with the point at which the endowment of oil has been 50 percent depleted. Once the peak is passed, oil production begins to go down while cost begins to go up.

USA Economy:

Arab Co., White House Had Secret Agreement

USA Economy
    WASHINGTON - The Bush administration secretly required a company in the United Arab Emirates to cooperate with future U.S. investigations before approving its takeover of operations at six American ports, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.
    White House
    It chose not to impose other, routine restrictions.

    By Mr. TED BRIDIS, Associated Press Writer

    As part of the $6.8 billion purchase, state-owned Dubai Ports World agreed to reveal records on demand about "foreign operational direction" of its business at U.S. ports, the documents said. Those records broadly include details about the design, maintenance or operation of ports and equipment. The administration did not require Dubai Ports to keep copies of business records on U.S. soil, where they would be subject to court orders.

Economy of the USA

USA Economy

    DEMOGRAPHY AND SOCIAL INDICATORS

    The United States of America is world's third-largest country in terms of population. The data obtained from US census bureau predicts 295.734 millions persons residing in the US in 2005 , as against an average number of 1000 million in the ‘high-income countries’ category.
    Where does Us oil come from.

    The US, in the past, has attracted vast numbers of immigrants from around the globe. Yet, the country remains less densely populated than other large countries or other industrialized nations. In 2003, there were 30 persons per sq km (78 per sq mi). For a large country, the United States is also remarkably uniform linguistically and culturally. Almost 80% of the people live in urban areas and enjoy a higher life expectancy at birth of 77 years.

    Average annual growth of population has been 1.1% from 1997 to 2003, which is still higher than other high-income countries’ figure of 0.6 %. The US economy has an edge over other rich countries as indicated by its labour force growth rate of 1.3% (1997-03), while other high income countries have less than 1% growth in workforce over these years.
