how to be someone’s angry wife topic / heartbreak

When the kids are sleeping, we sit and stare at each other again, this time from different chairs in the living room. I say that deep down, I think it makes sense to separate, but I don’t want to because it’s too horrible. I say I won’t let myself be unhappy for years upon years either. If someth...

I wanted to make enough cash

And the greatest tragedy of all: I wanted to make enough cash so that a smart girl like you would not have to degrade herself to the finance-world burnout [...]

now you're everything I'm never going to get

Now it's been years since we said our long goodbyes. I'm not any smarter. I just watched my first company go down in flames and I'm starting a new one. I have to talk to lawyers for bankruptcy in the mornings and lawyers for setting up a new firm in the second. And I know that if you were here, y...

making that question easier for other people to answer advice / living

sadness spreads like a stain topic / heartbreak

Something about the National has always felt like an escape, which is at face value an odd thing to say about a band whose subject is mainly sadness and anxiety. It’s both easy to and fun to make jokes about this band being the saddest band, the saddest dads, a band full of sad dads who really lo...

the world felt saturated with oxygen topic / heartbreak

[...] I have frequently tried to get my husband to listen to the National, but before this, it had never stuck. His only comment last summer, when I put all their albums on shuffle on Spotify and played it in the car was, “Is that guy going to apologize again?”

But last week, he texted me that...

the alchemy of international usury

Debt hangs heavy for the bulk of the planet. In 1 970, when the Third World project was intact, the sixty states classified as "low-income" by the Eorld Bank owed commercial lenders and international agencies $25 billion. Three decades later, the debt of these states ballooned to $523 billion. An...

the idea of the global city

[...] The East Asian miracle, for Rajaratnam, was located in the city. This was not the industrial town of the nineteenth century. These cities represented the new mobile epoch of IMF-driven globalization. The idea of the global city ignored production, emphasized consumption, and made money ...

the rise in petrodollars

[...] During the first six months of 1974, when the fiscal effects of the oil crisis became clear, the G-7 enjoyed a $6 billion surplus with the nonpetroleum exporting Third World states, but it suffered a $4 1 billion deficit with the oil exporting states. A year later, the nonpetroleum states o...

the effects of the oil crisis in the Third World

[...] World inflation, high oil prices, and a drop in commodity prices effected the reserves, as it did those of most of the darker nations. In 1960, the total debt of the 133 states that the world Bank counted as part of the "developing countries" held a total public and private debt just short ...

break Jamaica out of its impoverished chrysalis

By the early 1 970s, the government reactivated its efforts to break Jamaica out of its impoverished chrysalis at the nether end of global capitalism.
