Globalization

  • China in the age of transition

    A new Chinese revolution could turn the global balance of power again to the favor of the global working classes and progressive social forces, argues Minqi Li in this Canadian Dimension exclusive from our latest magazine issue.

  • Canada’s transformation under neoliberalism

    Neoliberalism represented a multi-faceted, deliberate, global strategy by elites to turn the whole ship around. A generation later, it is sobering to consider how successful that strategy has been. It has clearly empowered and enriched corporations and those who own them, and put workers on the defensive everywhere.

  • Undoing Border Imperialism with Harsha Walia

    Activist and author Harsha Walia discusses Canada’s ongoing colonial legacy and how to challenge global border imperialism with Canadian Dimension editorial collective member, Matthew Brett.

  • Listen to Chomsky’s MontrĂ©al discussion period

    Listen to the discussion period from Noam Chomsky’s Montréal lecture in Oct. 2013, a discussion that touches upon the reality of growing police repression in Montréal under the municipal law P-6 that bans free protest, to a clear denunciation of the pending Quebec secularist charter.

Three U.S. firms recently announced plans to use the “trade” pact to seek nearly one billion taxpayer dollars in private, NAFTA-created tribunals as compensation for Canadian policies on fracking, wind energy, and medicine patents.

The key point is that the ‘crisis of labour’ is a major stimulus for the recovery of capitalist profits.

  • Mud, Hubris and Malevolent Urban Change

    India seems more preoccupied than ever with showing off its resources and firepower, of which it certainly has plenty, than worrying about their mal-distribution and misuse. This attitude, as my article suggests, is at the heart of all that is wrong with the Commonwealth Games.

  • G20 Fiddles While Planet Burns and Economy Fizzles

    With the G20 political leaders preparing to gather in Toronto this June, the outcome of the palaver can already be predicted with certainty: failure to resolve either the global economic or environmental crisis.
