We want a "peace economy" that creates jobs, invests in our communities, restores and improves public services, saves the environment, and builds the infrastucture. We urge you to sign the petition at www.jobs-not-wars.org that calls for an end to the austerity and militarism that this Congress and Administration seem intent on.
Europe is showing us that austerity is not the way to recover from recession. And the IMF said as much in its last report. Our favorite economist, Paul Krugman knows that stimulus and spending are the only thing that will get the economy going again.
