The Demise of “Current Affairs”

| September 1, 2012

Current affairs programming is very much lacking in New Zealand, as in Canada and the US. For younger readers, who may be unfamiliar with the […]

A “meme,” as defined in Adbusters founder Kalle Lasn’s 2000 book Culture Jam, is defined as a unit of information (a catchphrase, tune, fashion, philosophy or […]

The “D” Word

| July 15, 2010

The “D” Word I am in the process of launching a new 12 step program (along the lines of Alcoholics Anonymous) called Deflation Anonymous. The aim of the program is to help Wall Street analysts and mainstream journalists overcome their terror of the word “deflation” – and their denial that the US economy has entered […]
