  • Part one and part two of a two-part series from Al Jazeera on Canada, indigenous environmentalism, oil pipelines, and state surveillance.  The escalation of anti-carbon militancy in Canada is very interesting and points to possible forms of transnational/transregional solidarity around capitalist logistics infrastructure, as I’ve discussed here
  • Musings on whether development economics has become divorced from on-the-ground empirical realities
  • Ultra-poverty in America is rising: “The number of U.S. residents who are struggling to survive on just $2 a day has more than doubled since 1996, placing 1.5 million households and 3 million children in this desperate economic situation.”
