- Student protests: Demonstration effect | Editorial
Government plans to triple tuition fees and slash government teaching grants in higher education prompted a huge turnoutFact one: up to 50,000 students and lecturers marched through the streets of London in yesterday's protest against government plans to triple tuition fees and slash government teaching grants in higher education. Fact two: a few hundred protesters – at most – broke away and attacked the building that houses Conservative party HQ, did some damage, caused some injuries, generated some striking images, and eventually got involved in a stand-off with police, who were taken by surprise. Fact three: the two protests, the larger peaceful one and the smaller violent one, will inescapably have become tangled in the reporting and public perception of yesterday's events. Fact four: tangled or not, these were politically significant events for Britain and should be taken seriously.They should be taken seriously because, in spite of a reprehensible violent sideshow, this was a large protest with significant public support and the capacity to have a palpable impact on mainstream politics. You do not have to believe that the country's students and lecturers are the most downtrodden victims of the coalition's spending cuts – there may be better candidates for that accolade in Iain Duncan Smith's welfare reform announcements today – to recognise that they may be a lightning rod for wider public unease with the government's public spending strategy. But the fact that students and lecturers are so concentrated in particular parliamentary constituencies, plus the fact that the Liberal Democrats hold many of these seats, gives the higher education protesters a particular and unusual purchase. Most of what happened yesterday is likely to weaken the resolve of Lib Dem MPs to 最大50,000学生や講師が授業料を3倍にし、スラッシュ、政府の教育助成金を高等教育における政府の計画に対して昨日の抗議のロンドンの街を行進：政府が授業料を3倍にし、高等教育における政府の教育補助金を大幅に削減する巨大なturnoutFactいずれかを求め計画

- Changing the terms of economic debate | Dean Baker
As long as we let ourselves be boxed in by a rightwing agenda that leaves us searching for least-worst options, we're losingThere is a new economists' sign-on letter being circulated that warns bad things will happen if there are big cuts to the public investment portion of the federal budget, as Republicans in Congress are now advocating. The argument in the letter is correct, but it is nonetheless painful to see this sort of thing being circulated right now.The politicians in Washington may have missed it, but we are still in the middle of the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. The unemployment rate is still 9.0% and virtually no forecaster, including those in the administration, expects it to return to normal levels any time soon. In addition to the unemployed, we have more than 8 million people underemployed, and millions more who have given up looking for work altogether. In such times, we might expect that there would be discussion of a big new stimulus programme. After all, we do know how to generate growth and create jobs. As a large and growing body of research shows (pdf), we just have to spend money. This means that tens of millions of people are suffering as a result of unemployment or underemployment simply as a result of bad economic policy.The politicians who could, in principle, push through more stimulus have been intimidated into silence by the business lobbies and the media which have decided to make concerns about the deficit the top and only economic priority. In this context, it would have been reasonable to expect that a letter drafted by prominent liberal economists (the lead signers include Alan Blinder and Laura Tyson, two of the top economists from the Clinton administration) would centre on the need to boost demand to create 長い間私たちは自分自身は、少なくとも最悪のオプションについては、我々はlosingThereされている我々の捜索を離れる右派議題によって囲まれることができる限り新しいエコノミストの記号文字に大きな削減にある場合に発生する悪いことを警告していることが流通している議会での共和党員として、連邦予算の公共投資の部分は、現在提唱している
- Invest in rail, not roads | Richard Hebditch
Arguing that rail investment is pointless because more people use cars ignores the reality of congestion and climate changeSo the RAC Foundation's Stephen Glaister argues that roads are missing out on the lavish attention spent on rail. The argument that the road network suffers in comparison with rail simply does not stand up. Rail, as part of a better integrated and supported public transport network, has to be the future priority for investment if we are to stop adding to congestion and climate change.The RAC Foundation's arguments against rail seem to come down a circular argument that not enough people use rail, therefore it shouldn't receive significant investment to expand its capacity, which will mean that not enough people will use it, which justifies not investing in it … This just won't do as the basis for deciding where scarce public investment should go.So why should we invest in rail as part of a decent public transport network? Well, I'd suggest the first answer is that the country can't afford not to. The costs resulting from the current poor transport system mean we have to move to a better mix of transport modes. The Cabinet Office's study on urban transport showed that the costs of congestion in urban areas alone are over £10bn a year, and on top of that are costs of £8.7bn from people injured in collisions, up to £10bn from poor air quality, £9.8bn from physical inactivity as people are put off walking and cycling by the levels and speed of traffic, and up to £5bn from noise pollution.Building more roads will not tackle these problems, and evidence shows that congestion simply builds up with the traffic jam often simply moved a few miles down the road. Road building eats up more and more public funding, with schemes like the A46 from Newark to Widmer 多くの人々は車を使用するため、鉄道への投資は無意味です口論渋滞や気候changeSo RACの財団のスティーブングレイスターの現実を無視し、道路は、豪華な注目レールに費やさで行方不明であると主張する
- Unthinkable? Curb aid in Haiti | Editorial
Long before the earthquake hit, much of Haiti was run not by its government but by NGOsThe role the United States and France played in the impoverishment of Haiti must count among the less glorious achievements of both countries. Successive US presidents, from Ronald Reagan to George Bush, have contributed to the destruction of Haitian agriculture, with the result that Haiti, a natural rice producer, had to import subsidised US rice. This accelerated the flight into the cities, with the cataclysmic consequences witnessed when the earthquake struck. So that when Bill Clinton, now the UN envoy to Haiti, this week questioned whether the aid effort was helping Haiti to become self-sufficient, one had to remind oneself what happened to Haiti under Mr Clinton's presidency. He was, nevertheless, asking the right question. Long before the earthquake hit, much of Haiti was run not by its government but by NGOs. A World Bank study in 2006 counted 10,000 of them alone, the highest per capita concentration in the world. Of those, 800 alone were employed in agriculture, managing $85m of the $91m budgeted for public investment in 2006-07. Disaster relief has merely accelerated this process, and the UN's role has been to co-ordinate 900 NGO groups registered with it. The excuse for circumventing the Haitian government has been either its corruption or its complete absence, but the cure has become worse than the disease. The aid ought to be going to Haitians and their popular movements should decide how to rebuild the country. Foreign agendas for Haiti have not worked.HaitiInternational aid and developmentguardian.co.uk © Guardian News & Media Limited 2010 | Use of this content is subject to our Terms & Conditions | More Feeds
