WOMEN FOR AMERICA...FOR THE WORLD , Suppressed Peace Film
EON is pleased and honored to play on-line host to the Academy Award winning documentary WOMEN -- FOR AMERICA, FOR THE WORLD. Leading American women speak out about the dangers posed by nuclear weapons and call for a new vision of security based on affirming life rather than destroying it. With the specter of nuclear weapons proliferation looming even larger today, and with the moribund nuclear power industry attempting to 're-brand' itself as a 'clean energy' solution to global climate change, this clear-headed film is as relevant today as when it won the prestigious prize in 1986.

Global Wars, Public Debts, and the Long Cycle
Karen A. Rasler (a1) and William R. Thompson (a2)
Published online: 01 June 2011
AbstractThe explanation of the rise and fall of the world system's leading powers in terms of uneven economic development tends to overlook the role of the creation and management of public credit and national debts. Prior to 1815, the Netherlands and Great Britain owed a significant proportion of their respective victories over the larger and wealthier states of Spain and France to the development of competitive financial capabilities. Winning, however, leads to higher absolute debt burdens which, prior to 1945, encouraged postwar reductions in governmental expenditures. In this fashion, world leaders have contributed to the erosion of their preponderant capability positions before the emergence of international rivals. These ideas are elaborated within the context of George Modelski's long cycle of world leadership theory and through a brief review of war-related financial problems between 1500 and 1815 and the consequent development of national debts. The longitudinal analysis of British and American public debt data provides collaborating empirical support.
