Det såkaldte Rangvid-udvalg, der med professor Jesper Rangvid i spidsen har kulegravet, hvorfor Danmark blev så hårdt ramt af finanskrisen, afleverer sin rapport. Udvalget blev nedsat af daværende erhvervs- og vækstminister Ole Sohn (SF) 24. januar 2012.

Finanskrisen behandles med dansk provinsialisme. Af Kristian Weise (Magasinet Politik, 3. oktober 2013; online på Internet Archive WayBackMachine). “Fem år efter at krisen brød ud kom det danske udvalg om finanskrisen med sin rapport om årsagerne og konsekvenserne af krisen.

Den danske banksektor var for stor til ikke at fejle. Af Karen Helveg Petersen (Arbejderen.dk, 27. september 2013). “Rangvid-rapportens styrke er dens gennemgang af mange tilsyneladende ligegyldige detaljer og menneskelige svagheder, der fik korthuset til at vælte.”

Af Erik Christensen (Modkraft.dk/Blog, 20. september 2013). “Rapporten er så til pas bred i sin analyse og peger på mange årsager til krisen, hvilket betyder at alle etablerede aktører kan vælge at udpegede skurke, der passer, dem bedst.”

Fædre vrøvler islam og Aljazeera – Mig jeg uskyldig. Af Steen Gottlieb (11. november 2013). Anmeldelse. “Det er ætsende kritik af en del af underklassens livsform, den har lukket sig selv inde i et normsystem, som den kalder islam.

“Euromaidan” er sammensat af Euro- og af Maidan (plads). Se Tidslinjen 27. februar 2014 for links om Ruslands besættelse af Krim-halvøen, krigen i Ukraine og venstrefløjens debat om begivenhederne.
