Refugees have the right to be protected: António Guterres no TED +



Refugees Have the Right to Be Protected: António Guterres – TED Talks
Participação de António Guterres, ex-Alto Comissário das Nações Unidas para os Refugiados (ACNUR), na conferência TED Global que teve lugar em Genebra, no passado dia 8 de Dezembro.
UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres thinks that we can solve the global refugee crisis — and he offers compelling, surprising reasons we must try. In conversation with TED's Bruno Giussani, Guterres discusses the historical causes of the current crisis and outlines the mood of the European countries that are trying to screen, shelter and resettle hundreds of thousands of desperate families. Bigger picture: Guterres calls for a multilateral turn toward acceptance and respect — to defy groups like ISIS's anti-refugee propaganda and recruiting machine.

Yanis Varoufakis: Capitalism will eat democracy – unless we speak up
Outra conferência que vale a pena descobrir, realizada no mesmo evento TED Global em que esteve António Guterres, em Genebra, no dia 8 de Dezembro, desta vez com o carismático Yanis Varoufakis.
Have you wondered why politicians aren’t what they used to be, why governments seem unable to solve real problems? Economist Yanis Varoufakis, the former Minister of Finance for Greece, says that it’s because you can be in politics today but not be in power — because real power now belongs to those who control the economy. He believes that the mega-rich and corporations are cannibalizing the political sphere, causing financial crisis. In this talk, hear his dream for a world in which capital and labor no longer struggle against each other, “one that is simultaneously libertarian, Marxist and Keynesian.”

Enough Is Enough
Pequeno ensaio video baseado no livro Enough Is Enough de Rob Dietz e Dan O’Neill, questionando a sustentabilidade de um modelo económico baseado no paradigma do eterno crescimento.
Enough Is Enough lays out a visionary but realistic alternative to the perpetual pursuit of economic growth—an economy where the goal is enough, not more. Based on the best-selling book by Rob Dietz and Dan O'Neill, the film explores specific strategies to fix the financial system, reduce inequality, create jobs, and more. Drawing on the expertise of Tim Jackson, Kate Pickett, Andrew Simms, Natalie Bennett, and Ben Dyson, Enough Is Enough is the primer for achieving genuine prosperity and a hopeful future for all.

Making Money Work - Adair Turner
Conferência promovida pelo think-tank Positive Money com o tema “Making Money Work”, debatendo os perigos de uma política monetária que tem o crédito e o endividamento como base para o crescimento.
On Monday 7th September 2015, Positive Money hosted a high-level panel discussion, “Making Money Work”, with Lord Adair Turner, Professor Steve Keen (Kingston University) and Chris Giles (Financial Times) in Central Hall Westminster. It was the biggest event on monetary financing that has ever taken place. The event was attended by around 200 people, including leading figures in finance and civil society. Those taking part included Richard Murphy, advisor to Jeremy Corbyn, Natalie Bennett, leader of Green Party, as well as ex-banker and economics commentator Frances Coppola. Lord Turner gave a talk on how the monetary system works, the dangers of debt-fuelled growth and monetary financing as a new monetary policy tool that should be considered by governments and central banks. After his presentation, Lord Turner was joined by Professor Steve Keen, Head of School of Economics, History and Politics at Kingston University, London and Chris Giles, Economics Editor of the Financial Times. The discussion was focused on the question “Can innovations in monetary policy promote long-term prosperity?”.

Exposição O Círculo Delaunay
O Círculo Delaunay, uma exposição a não perder, patente no Centro de Arte Moderna da Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian até ao próximo dia 22 de Fevereiro.
Sonia e Robert Delaunay viveram em Portugal desde Agosto de 1915 até Dezembro de 1916, aprofundando as relações, que já mantinham em Paris, com alguns portugueses – Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso, Eduardo Viana e José Pacheko, e a que se junta junta Almada Negreiros. Esta exposição reconstitui o ambiente criativo gerado pela presença destes artistas que a guerra traz ao seu país de origem ou que empurra para o exílio, apresentando novas investigações sobre as relações dos Delaunays com Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso.
