This blog presents a journal of ideas, analysis, and source materials on world issues. Global Analyst Online Observer is a new section of Global Geopolitics Net. Here we plan to present a well organized selection of informative materials, news, and analysis on major world issues.
Global Analyst Online Observer is intended as an Internet forum for ideas and analysis on important economic and political issues that impact the lives of people around the planet. The goal is to develop critical analysis of economic issues and feasible and effective policy alternatives that enhance human well being and lead to sustainable development, shared prosperity and economic justice on a global scale.
The approach to political economy presented here will be trans-disciplinary and multidimensional. There will be no artificial separation of economics, politics and social issues. No particular discipline will be recognized as supreme, only sound rational, ethical and factually based analysis grounded in reality rather than a priori dogma or propaganda serving selfish interests.
The site presents a range of viewpoints and analytical perspectives. Materials on the site reflect the viewpoint, analytical perspective, or factual presentation of each individual author and do not necessarily reflect the views of the editor. The site is a non commercial site oriented to providing information and analysis for purposes of public education and in service of the global public interest.
Some items appearing on the site are short quick notes or preliminary drafts that may appear later in better edited and expanded articles.
Global Analyst Online Observer is part of a site and blog network that presents regularly updated information, analysis, and commentary on major global issues such as peace and war, human rights, intelligence gathering, terrorism, globalization, economic development, and the environment, as well as the internal politics of major countries and crisis areas. The weblog is sponsored by Eurasia Research Center – Global Geopolitics Net as a non commercial educational service aimed at fostering public understanding of complex problems and issues facing the world today.
