    [Vijay Prashad] The Decline of the Global North

    [Vijay Prashad] The Decline of the Global North

    The Global North or the West is a group of countries led by the United States. In juxtaposition is the Global South, once called the Third World. In recent years, the Global North has undergone a significant economic and political decline. The geopolitical landscape is shifting thus opening new possibilities for Global South countries, particularly for China. A dramatic example of America’s isolation was the UN vote on Palestinian membership. The vote was 143 in favor, 25 abstentions and 9 against. Joining the U.S. no vote were such powerhouses as Nauru, Micronesia, and Palau. Increasingly, the U.S. position in the world is weakening. Its double standards, one set of rules for the master and his servants and another set for everyone else, has not won Washington many friends in the Global South. Recorded at Connolly Books.

Alternative Radio with David Barsamian

Vital, direct & factual reportage from journalists & scholars~Social & human rights groups & workers. Balanced & thorough ~ reporting, analysis & informative detail revealing for listeners~that which is supressed & un-examined by more “mainstream” media & “news” outlets. Undeniably unbiased & fact - rich in content. Refreshing, inspiring & very freely offered for listeners to make inroads by their own actions in directly helpful ways
regarding their own personal urges to be of active service toward their highest ideals for peace, social & human rights balance, truth telling & clarity for compassionate
understanding. A educational broadcast providing an essential piece in the construct of a world which works for everyone, & by everyone’s enlightened
participating action.

Great Program, terrible Podcast policy

I appreciate the great show and speakers, and am glad they bothered to create a Podcast of it at all, but c’mon, one episode at a time (or you can telegraph, fax or use smoke signals to request/receive old episodes)?!

It would be much more useful to share the back catalog, or at least a half-dozen or more episodes at a time versus being so controlling with them. I get that it’s likely a revenue stream, but perhaps create a Patreon or subscription feed to get the full
Episodes or get extra content…just need to get the logistics figured out…
