On Hiatus, Again NEW
DJ Nozem 6 Years, 3 Months, 3 Weeks, 5 Days, 6 Hours, 22 Minutes ago
As I'm now an editor on two widely read blogs, the Atlantic Review and the European Tribune (and I can put my snark up on twitter), this crappy-looking blog will likely see even less frequent posting.Some service announcements will still be made when...
Libertas FAIL NEW
DJ Nozem 6 Years, 4 Months, 1 Week, 3 Days, 15 Hours, 44 Minutes ago
EUbusiness announces the end of a rather strange campaign by the Irish anti-Lisbon Treaty party Libertas to be recognised as a European political party. The question remains why it tried to take this avenue in the first place. Does being a European p...

The EUobserver has a very good report that I think supports my take on this first round of stimulus bills in Europe. No direction whatsoever in them. A few quotes:"Much more could be done in the areas of energy- and climate," said Jakob von Weizsäke...

Iceland & The EU Fisheries Bind NEW

Seems like everyone in the UK is having a fun time bashing Jonathan Porritt. Here's a quote from the (sabotaged) wiki:In February of 2009, Jonathon stated that population growth is a serious threat to the global environment and that contraception, ab...
A short message to my green friends NEW
DJ Nozem 6 Years, 5 Months, 1 Hour, 46 Minutes ago
The financial sector has turned into something of an ally on green issues. The big banks, insurers and reinsurers have taken up challenges in regard to climate change, ecosystem services, sustainable development. And they have lobbied for clear gover...

While GDP is still King, you do not get thrown in jail (yet) for forecasting its fall.Talking about currencies, on the other hand, is an increasingly hazardous business. As has been found out by a Latvian professor, journalist, and now a South Korean...

The French Presidency of the EU turned out to be less fun than I thought it would be. There turned out to be enough real crises for Sarkozy to satisfy his desire for action and grandstanding, and well, he did manage those quite well.The Czechs, thoug...
