Global finance: Are those storm clouds ahead?

Is capitalism reproducing the same conditions that led to the 2007-08 financial crash? In two introductory articles, Ross Saunders looks at the rickety global financial order and Ian Groeber points to the recent Italian bank bailouts to show how the working class continues to pick up the tab for the capitalists' failures.

Venezuela: Capitalist offensive sharpens after assembly elections

The escalating civil strife and economic crisis in Venezuela is being used by western governments and the establishment media as a stick to beat socialists with. However, as Marxists in Venezuela explain in the following article, the Maduro state bureaucracy is incapable of mobilising the working class to defeat the capitalist counterrevolution.

Universal basic income - what do socialists say?

The idea of welfare benefits being replaced by a 'universal basic income' (UBI) has resurfaced in recent years - a welcome discussion because it raises the fundamental right of everyone to have an income that meets their basic needs. Exact proposals vary but they are all based on the idea of everyone in society receiving an unconditional, tax-free, regular payment, regardless of whether they are working or the composition of their household.

High Court bombshell on Brexit decision

The decision of the High Court that the government must allow Parliament a say in the issue of Brexit is a bombshell with wide, and perhaps even unforeseen, effects. It could lead to a general election next year which in turn will widen even further the endemic splits within the Tory Party. As shown by the resignation of Tory MP Stephen Phillips over the government's handling of Brexit and of Zac Goldsmith over the third runway at Heathrow, these splits are already of Grand Canyon proportions!

US presidential election: The disastrous failure of 'lesser evilism'

According to one opinion poll, 25% of young Americans would prefer a meteor to destroy Earth than see Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton in the White House! As Patrick Ayers and Ty Moore of Socialist Alternative (US co-thinkers of the Socialist Party) argue, if ever there was a case for a new political party to represent the 99% then this presidential election is it.

The Corbyn insurgency 2.0: Now let's finish the job

EU referendum: political turmoil ahead whatever the result

A Brexit vote, and Cameron's subsequent resignation, would lift the confidence of many workers who would rightly feel they had landed a serious blow on the opposition. At the same time it would be a serious defeat for the capitalist class.

EU: busting the myths that Remain is best for the 99%

As we approach voting day for the EU referendum, panic has set in for the establishment and 'project fear' has been stepped up. The official campaigns on both sides have bandied about arguments full of lies and misrepresentations. We answer three key questions: Does the EU build international solidarity? Does the EU defend workers' rights? Does the EU keep the peace?
