Have you ever heard of Agenda 21? If not, don’t feel bad, because most Americans haven’t. It is essentially a blueprint for a “sustainable world” that was introduced at the UN Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1992. Since then, it has been adopted by more than 200 counties and it has been modified and updated at other UN environmental summits. The philosophy behind [...]

The prestigious award, controversially given to the EU rather than an individual, has been collected by Herman Van Rompuy and Jose Manuel Barroso, the Union’s two “presidents” to the sound of trumpet fanfares and in the presence of the Norwegian Royal Family.
“Ich bin ein Europaer. Je suis fier d’etre europaen. I am proud to be European,” said Mr Van Rompuy, the president of the European Council, the regular [...]
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti disagreed on whether the euro area’s permanent bailout fund should receive a bank license as they seek to keep Europe’s debt-crisis response on track.
“It is my conviction, as far as the ESM is concerned, that a banking license for the ESM is not compatible with the treaties,” Merkel said after hosting Monti for talks in Berlin today, referring to European Union treaties and the [...]
German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble declared bond traders all wrong in driving up Spanish borrowing costs to unsustainable levels.
After issuing the statement late yesterday, Schaeuble, 69, went off duty for a three-week vacation.
It’s summertime in Europe, and like last year, borrowing costs are rising as investors fret over the fate of the 17- nation euro area. Most government leaders are heading to their favorite beaches, mountains and lakes to take a break [...]
Has Europe finally been saved this time? Has this latest “breakthrough” solved the European debt crisis? Of course not, and you should know better by now. European leaders have held 18 summits since the beginning of the debt crisis. After most of the preceding summits, global financial markets responded with joy because European leaders had reached “a deal” which would supposedly solve the crisis. But a few weeks after [...]
Nouriel Roubini and Ian Bremmer of Eurasia Group appeared on ‘Bloomberg Surveillance’ with Tom Keene, Sara Eisen and Ken Prewitt today to discuss Europe’s debt crisis.
On Germany bailing out other euro zone countries, Roubini said, “The Germans say, ‘you lost your virginity. Now you sign a contract. You say, ‘I’m a born again virgin.’ Be abstinent for the next two years. Show me your soul and two years from now, [...]
Israel will not be invited to NATO’s May 20-21 summit in Chicago, the alliance’s top official said Friday. But he denied that alliance member Turkey had blocked Israel’s participation.
Instead, NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the reason is because Israel does not participate in NATO’s main military missions.
News reports have claimed that Turkey blocked Israel’s participation because of the raid in 2010 by Israeli troops on ships heading to Gaza [...]
On Thursday, President Obama signed H.R. 347, a bill that could drastically limit the ability of Americans to assemble and protest. It is now a federal offense to assemble at many political events, essentially criminalizing protesting.
Under the new law, anyone who enters Secret Service protected property and “engages in disorderly or disruptive conduct” or “impede[s] or disrupt[s] the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions” can be arrested.
Before you [...]
WASHINGTON — The White House abruptly announced Monday that it had scuttled plans to hold the upcoming G-8 economic summit in Chicago, and would instead host world leaders at the presidential retreat at Camp David in Maryland.
It was an unusually late location change for a large and highly scripted international summit and came with little explanation from the White House. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel — the former White House chief [...]
Home prices in the U.S. are now in a double-dip and have gone back 8 years. Lower paying jobs, higher expenses, shadow inventory, and big government spending all align with a path of real estate malaise.
What if real estate prices remain the same for another decade? As I look at economic trends in our nation including the jobs we are adding, it is becoming more apparent [...]
