Why do modern economies go through the “business cycle” of booms and busts? What caused the U.S. housing bubble that precipitated the financial crisis? Who correctly predicted it and who should we listen to for wisdom moving forward? Ron Paul vs. Paul Krugman is an examination of the root cause of the crisis as seen through the eyes of two prominent commentators on the subject, each representing a different school of economic thought.

“Any work of economics that can make you laugh is at least worth a look. If in less than 100 pages it also informs you about a subject of great importance, it might just qualify as a must-read. Jeremy Hammond, a political journalist self-taught in economics and a writer of rare skill, has produced such a book….. This short work conveys more insight into the causes and cures of business cycles than most textbooks, and more about the recent business cycle than most volumes of much greater length.” — Barron’s, August 31, 2013
An overview of the crucial period from the rise of the Zionist movement until the creation of the state of Israel, examining how the seeds of the continuing conflict in the Middle East between Jews and Arabs were sown during this time. It sets out to show, by examining principle historical documents and placing key events in proper context, that the root of today’s conflict is the rejection of the right to self-determination for the Arab Palestinians.

“Excellent short work on the founding of Israel via the wholesale violation of the rights of Palestinians. This is the book to give to people who ask what’s at the root of Middle East strife. Highly recommended!” – Sheldon Richman, vice president of The Future of Freedom Foundation
It’s not enough to recognize the bias of the corporate media, the shortcomings of sensational reporting and the failure, if not outright dishonestly of the media ‘experts’, whose sole mission is to reinforce the status quo, even if at the expense of their very own integrity. Alternatives must be sought, and answers must be provided. The gap of intellectual dishonestly must be filled somehow. In fact, this is the essence of the ‘alternative media’, and that is precisely what Foreign Policy Journal is trying to achieve. Yes, it’s great that FPJ has so ably taken on this formidable responsibility, which is helping to reinforce a stronger position of those who dare challenge the prevailing narratives of war and hegemony, predicated on misinformation, lies and deceit. But it’s also not enough to recognize the contribution of FPJ and not do anything to guarantee, but insist on its survival. We all must support this important media platform, and help sustain it in anyway we can. The word of truth is not just the responsibility of the individual, but a collective responsibility as well, in which we all have to play our part. So please play your part today, and support FPJ, for it needs and deserves your support.
