Prof. Philip Lane on Fixing the Euro Crisis

About the Event: At this meeting of the IIEA Economists Group, Professor Philip Lane presented some of the proposals of the newly established Euro-nomics Group, of which he is a member. The group's objectives are to systematically identify the weaknesses in the design of the Eurozone that have caused the current crisis and to propose remedies to end it. Among their ideas is a new form of European Safe Bond or 'ESBIE'. The ESBIE is designed to break the 'diabolic loop' that exists beween sovereign debt and the banking system, while simultaneously providing a new safe asset that could act as an anchor in the turbulent European bond market. The ESBIE would bypass two of the major obstacles faced by proposals for a 'Eurobond', namely the requirement for Treaty change and the requirement of a joint and several guarantee by participating states, with consequent moral hazard. Under the ESBIE proposal, states would retain full responsibility for their sovereign debt, but debt up to the value of 60% of GDP would be purchased by a European Debt Agency, which would fund its purchases through the issuance of ESBIEs, alongside a riskier junior tranche. The entrance of such a major buyer into the European sovereign debt market would reduce uncertainty and allow for the redistribution of a liquidity premium towards peripheral countries. Find out more about ESBIEs and the group's other proposals here. Video of Prof. Lane's presentation will be uploaded here in the coming days. About the Speaker: Philip R. Lane is Professor of International Macroeconomics at Trinity College Dublin. In addition, he is a managing editor of the journal Economic Policy and the founder of The Irish Economy blog. He is a research fellow of the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) and a member of the steering group for its Macroeconomics of Global Interdependence (MGI) working group. His research interests include financial globalisation, the macroeconomics of exchange rates and capital flows, macroeconomic policy design, European Monetary Union, and the Irish economy.

IMPORTANT: Make sure you have "cc" and annotations turned on so you can see the lyrics and action updates! UPDATE: Wednesday Jan. 18 marks our stand for the right to peacefully protest within the city of Chicago. The vote on the changes in parade ordinances is coming to a head tomorrow morning, and Occupy Chicago is calling for you to come and show your support as this decision may or may not usher in the end of public protest activities. This is no hyperbole, this is a real threat to our first amendment rights. There will be a press conference at 9AM, Wednesday Jan. 18th, in City Hall. OC will host a direct action response at approx. 9:30AM. The session which may include a vote will begin at 10AM. If you wish to attend the council session, you must arrive no later than 7AM at City Hall.

If any part of your life includes the possibility of peaceful protest, please attend this press conference and rally and let our politicians know just how important the right to exercise our first amendment rights really is.

Everyone is urged to show up at City Hall, 9am CT, TUESDAY to show support against this legislation / ordinance.

However, Rahm recently backtracked and revealed that, once passed, they would be permanent. ****************Please forward broadly********************** Demand the right to march against NATO/G8 summits in Chicago: National call in day, Tuesday,January 17th Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago is attempting to clamp down on First Amendment rights to march and speak out against the NATO and G8 summits in May 2012. Emanuel is trying to rush through the City Council on January 18tha vote to greatly restrict the right to protest: raising fines for arrests during protests; making unreasonable demands on protest organizers,such as one marshal for every 100 marchers; a list in advance of all signs and banners in a march; and a list of all equipment for amplification of sound one week before any march. Also he wants permits for any sidewalk protest,which would be a major blow to unions and community groups. Also, while the city has granted permits for a rally and march on the first day of the May 19th -- 21st summits, organizers were told that permits could be revoked by the Secret Service. We are asking supporters of the march against NATO/G8 to call Mayor Rahm Emmanuel on Tuesday January 17th. (If you live in the City of Chicago,please also call your alderperson as well). Phone number 312-744-5000 Demand the following: 1) Back off the changes to the ordinances covering protests and public assemblies. 2)Publicly call on the Secret Service to permit CANG8 to use the permit sites granted by the city. Then, report your call afterwards by sending an email to cangate2012@gmail.com

Lawrence Krauss: 2011 "Cosmic Connections"

http://socraticmama.com/ [Inspiration & Support for Secular Families] Conway Hall, London Sunday 16th Oct. 2011 "Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust" Lawrence Krauss Professor of Earth and Space Exploration, Lawrence Krauss, isn't immune to small irritations of daily living. However, he can see the bigger picture. In this 'secular sermon' he shows how each of us is connected to the cosmos in ways we'd never imagine. From the stardust we're made of, to the atoms we breathe, to the curving of space time that governs the way we make our way through traffic jams, to time travel itself. Dr Lawrence Krauss is a prolific and popular writer and an indefatigable fighter for science and critical thinking. At Arizona State University, he is Foundation Professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and Physics Departments, Associate Director of the Beyond Center, and Co-Director of the Cosmology Initiative. He is also Director of the exciting new Origins Initiative, which explores questions ranging from the origin of the Universe to the origins of human culture and cognition. He has studied and explained matters from the microscopic to astronomical. In performing with the Cleveland Orchestra, judging at the Sundance Film Festival, and his Grammy nominated notes for Telarc Records, Krauss has also bridged the chasm between science and popular culture. http://www.theschooloflife.com/ http://vimeo.com/theschooloflife
