The following info graphics serve to explain the different aspects of the current global economic crisis in understandable language. Basically governments are over-borrowing to pay for the different facets of government; war, bank-bailouts, economic bailout packages, along with the regular costs’ of running countries.
When the debt to GDP (ratio to debt) of a country gets too high they have to continue to finance the interest on the government debt, leading to a deficit in national income. GDP being the ‘gross domestic product’, the amount of income per capita (citizen) that a country generates. Eventually the debt gets too high and this means that the country can either default or print more money (causing hyper-inflation).
The system is based on secrecy, because if it was clear how much money major countries are in debt then the financial / investment markets would become unstable, giving the governments unfavorable credit ratings, causing investors to move to other markets and generally causing economic decline. An integrated facet of the current school of economic thought is that the economy must continually be growing in order to pay off the ever growing national debt. If the economy would reach a no growth or decline situation than the interest on national debt could no longer be covered by national income (unless taxes where raised). However a continually growing economy is an irrational thought because the earth and her resources are finite, eventually leading to a no growth situation (which is predictable and agreeable). In this leveled off or no growth situation national debt becomes impossible to pay off. The current economic paradigm is impossible to sustain.

Less to do directly with the crisis but more so about the nature of international business on a large scale. Our current paradigm and system allow for economic exploitation at the cost of regular citizens.

Sifres releases another mega-mix and takes down the old one.
Somehow this must’ve been a very awkward moment for everyone involved in the shooting of this video.
Good thing it has nothing to do with graffiti, activism or anything remotely controversial. (sarcasm)
With the next totally unrelated video, which has more to do with pure destruction and less about graffiti, I’m glad it was filmed in HD otherwise I might get bored.
“one of the contacts inside the switch broke at around 60.000.. so i think the switches are not good enough.”
I’ve been looking at his ‘circuit bending’ stuff and I think I know what I’m getting myself for Christmas.
“When you have walked through fire, standing next to you is like being in the shadow of the wind,
in the moment before the rain, after the clouds and before the storms. Afresh but not drenched.”
“I recognize beauty in a blink of an eye, then I look closer – it’s usually fake.
I’m still drawn in to it, just not the beauty anymore, but the darkness that cultivates it.
For this particular piece I worked using my own body.
I made and played with self perception and self reflection.
I do not consider it to be beautiful or ugly, but a slight hint of feminist message is definitely there.”
