$29 Trillion World Corporate Debt – Global Capitalist Crisis Coming?
Looking for signs of what is really going on in the world capitalist economy is difficult when the units of analysis are nation-states. What matters more are those signals which impact the economy as a global whole. This brief article points to $29 trillion debt in corporations the world over. It also says that one-third of the companies cannot produce enough profit in investments to cover their cost of funding. What is amazing is that what would be an unacceptable and intolerable way to live for individuals is acceptable as a way of life for an economic system. Ignore the video. It’s the text below it that explains what’s going on.

Chinese Stock Market Closes Early for 2nd Time This Week
For the second time this week the Chinese stock market shut itself down for the day when stocks plunged seven percent again. Financial capitalists outside of China have placed a lot of their betting schemes on China and they are worried. China is in trouble and its working class is only starting to get organized. If it does, the whole world capitalist class will be shaken. Since capitalists derive the bulk of their profits from the surplus labor of its workers, if the Chinese working class starts demanding a higher percentage of surplus, all these capitalists are in trouble.
