The premeditated nature of preventive attacks and preventive wars makes them anathema to well-established international principles against aggression.

The global economic crisis is far from over, and transcending it requires the construction of a new global economic and financial system, not a revival of the structure that has collapsed.  That is the provocative conclusion of the Working Group on Financial and Monetary Issues, sponsored by Economists for Peace and Security (EPS) and the Initiative for Rethinking the Economy (IRE).  This committee of leading economic thinkers from the US, Europe, Asia and Latin America met in Paris to discuss and debate the global crisis on June 15 and 16, 2009.  The working group's verdict:

"In brief conclusion, the group of experts convened in Paris in June warns that the crisis is not over, that policies so far set in motion are not sufficient, and that the goals set by the authorities so far, which amount to a restoration of previous conditions, are neither desirable nor possible. It is time now to begin to take account of the irreversible characteristics of recent events, to chart a course of new construction instead of reconstruction, and to build the domestic and financial monetary institutions and safeguards necessary to make it possible to pursue that course."

The summary of the discussion and conclusions, by James K. Galbraith, is now at http://www.epsusa.org/projects/crisisworkinggroups/financewhitepaper09.pdf

Bullet EPS Trustees Joseph Stiglitz and Robert Reich, EPS Chair James K. Galbraith, and EPS Fellow William Black have signed an open letter to the recently established Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission (FCIC) calling for an investigation that will illuminate "the origins of the financial crisis in ways that lead to a full understanding of the institutions, people and practices that are responsible for our economic collapse." Based on the lessons of the Pecora Commission, the signers encourage the adoption of three guidelines that history has taught us are essential to an effective inquiry:
  • Appoint a single investigator. This individual must have a proven record of exposing fraudulent elites and institutions, and must provide a professional, non-political spirit to the investigation.
  • Afford no special treatment. No one is off-limits or gets special protection in the investigation.
  • Provide the tools to do the job. The investigator must be given ample budget and time, full subpoena authority, and the ability to hire and fire staff.

Congratulations to Jurgen Brauer on the publication of his new book, War and Nature: The Environmental Consequences of War in a Globalized World.

The inherent dangers of war zones constrain even the most ardent researchers, with the consequence that little has been known for certain about the effects of war on stable environments. War and Nature sifts through the available data from past wars to evaluate the actual impact that combat has on natural surroundings. Examining conflicts of various kinds — the long war in tropical Vietnam, the relatively brief and highly technical wars in the Persian Gulf, and various civil wars in Africa and South-Central Asia fought with small arms — Brauer asks whether differences in technology, location, and duration are critical in causing environmental and humanitarian harm. A number of unexpected conclusions are drawn from this data, including practical agendas for collecting scientific evidence in future wars and suggestions about what the world's environmental and conservation organizations can do. One thing War and Nature does is to show us how globalization can be a force harnessed for good ends.

The Obama administration intends to abandon its predecessor's proposal to field missile interceptors in Poland and a radar station in the Czech Republic, the Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza reported recently, citing Washington lobbyists and an unnamed US congressional source.

Washington is considering alternate deployment sites for the defenses, including warships stationed in the region as well as bases in Israel, Turkey and the Balkans, Agence France-Presse quoted the report as saying. The purpose of the shield would ostensibly be to counter a long-range missile threat from Iran, but Russia has loudly characterized the Bush administration plan as a threat to its strategic nuclear deterrent.

In a press statement, the Working Group announced that it is encouraged by US government efforts to increase oversight and accountability over private security contractors, but concerned by gaps in access to effective remedy for victims of human rights violations.

Revolt of the Paupers or the Aspiring? Geographic Wealth Dispersion and Conflict is a new paper funded by PRIO (the International Peace Research Institute, Oslo) and published by the Human Security Report Project.

Although income can vary considerably within countries, and conflict zones are rarely typical or representative for states at large, most existing research on development and conflict has neglected spatial differences in the distribution of wealth and only examined national averages. The authors argue that areas with low absolute income are likely to be more prone to conflict, even if a country’s GDP per capita may not be low, and that areas with large income deviations from national averages are more likely to see violence. They test these hypotheses empirically using spatially disaggregated data on income and conflict locations. Their results show that absolute poverty increases the risk that specific areas will see conflict and that relative wealth increases the risk of conflict in poor states. They also scale within-country variation in income up to country profiles, and show that local information on income can improve on conventional country average measures in accounting for conflict.

In addition to creating an existential threat to the planet and its people, rapidly accelerating climate change is a security challenge. The US military now views the massive disruptions that will result, in the absence of concerted global action, as a major likely precipitant of increased violent conflict around the world. A new report from Foreign Policy in Focus maps the enormous gap between federal expenditures on military as opposed to climate security.

In Foreign Policy In Focus World Beat's article "Gassed To Death," John Feffer writes, "For the last decade, highway fatalities in the United States remained relatively constant, at 42,000 deaths a year. But in 2008, when oil prices spiked, Americans drove a lot less. And that saved lives. In 2008, around 37,000 people died in automobile accidents. That's really quite extraordinary. When gas prices went up by a couple dollars per gallon, we saved more lives than perished in the September 11 attacks." http://www.fpif.org/fpifzines/wb/6282

Space, Security and the Economy, a report on the Bush Administration’s outer space policy, warns that the present policy of space dominance could transform outer space into a military battleground.

Official US policy asserts the right to deny any nation access to space if its actions are “perceived” to be hostile. This policy, together with other actions such as withdrawal from the ABM treaty and the ongoing development of weapons intended to attack objects in space, could lead to the deployment of weapons in space. If the US stations weapons in space, with other nations most likely to follow, it will lead to an arms race in space.

The report concludes that no one can prevail, and all stand to lose, in an arms race in space. Among other consequences would be negative effects on the growing scientific and commercial uses of space, and on the economy. In particular, private investors would be unlikely to place additional resources at risk in a vulnerable area of potential military conflict.

The report calls for changes in the policy of space dominance, greater transparency in military space spending, and detailed information about government and commercial space activities.
