Neoliberalism as Salesmanship and Social Ethics
      by Wendell W. Solomons
Current economic doctrine is designed to support salesmen for international loan sharks. Recent quips on IMF/World Bank policy intended as horseplay by Milton Friedman, the doctrine's main promoter, bring that out. Friedman hitched a ride on U.S. Federal resources when appointed Presidential advisor in 1976. He began to proliferate an anti-social ideology and cult of self-worship; events since that year show how the misapplication of U.S. resources is destabilizing world economy, society and polity.

Saturday's Miracle
      by Wendell W. Solomons
The unknown but historic alert of July 1992 to the World Bank's Lawrence Summers. Summers, promoted to Treasury Secretary in the Clinton administration, was de facto convener of U.S. consultants for reforms in Russia. The alert presents you with the text of an explanation why the selected reform model would contribute to an upswing in global weapons proliferation and criminality. The warning was issued before the proposed Russian reforms were begun by Summers' Harvard crony, a specialist with Latin American experience and thus fundamentally unqualified as compared with others, to tackle the huge superpower's centrally planned economy for the U.S.AID-financed consultancy.

An Inconvenient History
      by Anne Williamson
The corruption of the Russian economy is a direct result of U.S. sponsored aid programs. This is not nation building, but a "an utterly irresponsible form of colonialism."

Why We Count Seconds in Units of 60
      by Wendell W. Solomons
