disaster capitalism and crisis hype
Stock market movements are always reported in absolute "point" movements, which makes it easy to report "records being broken" or "the biggest drop ever" or whatever sells papers and radio ads. It's not too hard to put such reports in context but ordinary people don't usually know how. Economics is a field full of lies and ulterior motives and it's tricky to pull any relevant information out of it.

Potentials and Pitfalls: Debates on the Global Economic Crisis and the Three Way Fight
For the past few months, members of BTR, the Threewayfight blog, and others have been debating fascist potentials and their significance for a liberatory political project. The questions which this debate provokes lead to the need for an evaluation of current conditions, and an assessment of what has changed since previous high points of struggle. In the midst of this debate, capitalist markets were rattled with what has now become a global economic crisis. We're posting edits from the two sections of the debates here: debates on the crisis, and debates on fascism. We hope that folks find them useful, and will weigh in.

Chapter 11 of NAFTA Remains a Threat to National Sovereignty
Chapter 11 allows foreign investors to sue the governments of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico if they feel that their profits have been restricted. It guarantees fair and equitable treatment to foreign investors. In many instances, Chapter 11 is not being used to defend trade, but as a means to challenge and override domestic laws and international treaties.

This confiscation of property by the Federal Government is absolutely and unequivocally wrong, and it is illegal.

For the Federal Government to threaten me with stealing my home because I want them to fail, is economic FASCISM.

The imperialist “bailout bill” and its communist roots
Regarding the current trillion-dollar "bailout bill" that has stricken the US and is threatening the EU countries - especially the UK - at present, there is an important fact to remember:
The main reason why the former communist system in Europe could exist while it existed: because the communist regimes and their banks were continuously rescued by a long series of "bailout bills". They survived because they were kept alive by the global financial-political oligarchy; by the very same oligarchy that is at present regulating the global economy and which is ultimately responsible for the current crisis.

Ironically, the very same oligarchy that has been driving the world-economy toward a final collapse is at present blackmailing and threatening the world-economy with a final collapse, if it is not allowed to continue its course to drive world-economy into collapse.

US Real Estate: From Goldmine To Money Pit - Mortgage Backed Securities and Derivatives ar
The mortgage debt problem is simple really, it has been a total mis-appropriation of equity. The equity lost on flat screen TV's, boats, new cars, vacations, and other living expenses; is equity lost forever. This loss of equity spent on consumer goods and expenses is a pyramid scheme of hyper-capitalism that is flawed and failing. Equity not spent on the property the equity comes from, is equity lost forever, a mis-appropriation of funds, and inappropriate; it is a failing economic model.

Spreading NAFTA's Love Across The Atlantic
A Canada-EU trade deal could be used as the model for future bilateral accords and as a way to further renew U.S.-EU relation. The reality is that such an agreement with the EU will be no different than NAFTA in the sense that it will be used to further advance corporate interests. A Canada-EU trade deal would be yet another incremental step towards global governance.

Why they are getting away with it.
There is a powerful mood amongst the working class against bailing out the rich. It is so strong it defeated the bail out. The problem is there is no vehicle such as a mass workers' party to counter the ideological offensive of capital and through which this mood could channel itself and ultimately produce a more lasting and obvious alternative.

The Ideological War Continues
The capitalists are frantically trying to save their system. The ideological war is intense, "there will be catastrophe" if the working class doesn't agree to take on more debt. But the working class doesn't want to bail out the swindlers. The first vote failed as no one wants to be blamed. They'll add a few crumbs and likely get it passed with help from the Labor leaders who are wedded to capitalism and refusing to offer an alternative. But this shock has already had a significant effect on consciousness.
