With the credit crunch slowly unravelling the debt-dependent “real” economy, the late 2008 edition of Black Flag discussed the economics of wage cutting. This tied in to a look at the weakness of the unions. UK fascism, our ecological and health problems, a discussion of the welfare and analyis of why an eco-capitalism is an impossibility all feature.
