What happens when you allow commercial interests free rein over a nation state's food and agricultural policies? Consumers and farmers end up paying the price. Take the current predicament of wheat contamination in the US. Since 1994, Monsanto has conducted 279 field trials of RoundUp Ready wheat over more than 4,000 acres of land in 16 states
Electronic devices are becoming increasingly less repairable. The paradigm of disposable products and planned obsolescence of long-term devices is profitable for producers and therefore is widely applied. Apple does not shy away from abusing its fans, as it did with the iPods, whose batteries died immediately after their warranty expired

A modern business center with skyscrapers, which was made a symbol of the Russian capital through a series of powerful PR campaigns, Moskva City, may not materialize according to its original plan. No one is willing to rent an office in the new business center of Moscow. One-fifth of the offices remain empty. What will happen next?
Biden presented his focus on national security based upon the energy sector to a Democratic Party rally. Now he comes to Brazil, a country which in the past pledged to aid the USA in keeping the Soviet Union out of Latin America.

In Pakistan, depending on your place of residing, there is no electricity from six to twenty hours a day. Whereas it has hit hard the lives of the common man, making it impossible to function on a day to day basis, it has also brought down production in industrial sectors drastically, costing contracts and jobs of millions across the country
