By The Fault

I know you've missed him, so it's my pleasure to annouce that Charles is back. He has spent the last several weeks 'walking the walk.' On his recent trip to Africa he visited Ethiopia, Chad (the border with Darfur), Uganda and finally Zimbabwe to assist the Zimbabwe Election Support Network in monitoring the recent elections in Zimbabwe. As you know if you've read his bio, he runs a a non-profit called The Living Arts Project that raises awareness and funds for other non-profits and assist them in their brand development and marketing. His main focus is rural development projects primarily building schools, libraries and community centers as well as sustainable development projects and micro-finance.

Charles seems to raise the hackles on the faint of heart here and so has decided to start his own blog. He will continue to offer the ocassional post on economics and history here but will save his most pointed offerings for his site. So, if you're inclined you can visit him at By The Fault his tagline says it all "seismic politics, earth-shattering economics and volcanic commentary". I suggested he use "slip sliding away" for a tagline, he's not asking for advice, but how many prefer my suggestion? It will be interesting to see how many of you just can't resist and sign up to comment there. His style isn't for the faint of heart, but love him or hate him, you can't accuse him of not having a clear point of view, and a passionate way of expressing it.

A Book For You

apeopleshistory.jpgIt's that time again. I've just discovered that I have an extra copy of Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States. I'll take the first ten requests for the book left in the comments and then use a random number generator to determine a winner. I'll then ship the book at my expense to the lucky person. I'm going to have to limit this to residents of the United States and Canada until I find a less expensive way to ship to other locations.

Howard's latest book is A People's History of American Empire
