ROUBINI: America Is A Sick, Sick Country

In February 2013, NYU professor Nouriel Roubini made the call that US markets had entered the "mother of all asset bubbles."

With the rally in stocks that we've seen this year and a surge in high-yield debt issuance, Roubini said we're now at the midpoint of the bubble, in an interview with Yahoo Finance.

Next year may see more gains across markets, but the bubble, bigger than the one before the 2008 recession, will pop in 2016.

Because there is low growth, and low inflation in much of the world, there is liquidity that's leading to asset inflation, Roubini said:

"I think that this frothiness that we have seen in financial markets is likely to continue, from…

How the World Can Fight Global Warming, No Matter What Happens in Lima

By David Biello | December 2, 2014 |

The views expressed are those of the author and are not necessarily those of Scientific American.

Imagine if the world’s two largest polluters unilaterally decide to cut emissions of carbon dioxide, the ubiquitous gas responsible for the bulk of global warming. 

At the same time, a major developing country admits that future growth will have to be balanced with CO2 pollution limits.

 Meanwhile, an industrialized nation country takes responsibility for the layer of greenhouse gases it has already added to the atmosphere.

Even better, alternatives to burning fossil fuels to generate electricity or propel vehicles get cheap and begin to be deployed at significant scale. 

The clearing and cutting of the world’s forests slows. Even farmers who don’t particularly believe in climate change begin to take steps to restore carbon to depleted soils to boost fertility.

That’s what significant action to combat climate change

As Transparency International publishes its annual rankings on corruption, InSight Crime looks at how corruption is impacted in Latin America by one of its most powerful promoters: organized crime.

In order to facilitate business, organized crime groups corrupt certain elements of the state -- particularly the security forces and the judiciary. Organized crime has also shown an interest in infiltrating the political arena in many parts of the region.

Non-governmental organization Transparency International (TI) has been releasing an annual ranking of the world's most corrupt countries since 1995 -- although the number of countries surveyed, and the methodology used for doing so, has changed over time, meaning that the more recent rankings are not comparable with the earlier ones. The NGO gives each country a score based on "how corrupt their public sector…

El periódico estadounidense nos informó que el gobierno de Venezuela se ha visto obligado a vender parte de sus facturas petroleras y nos explica que“Acorralado por los p…
