Business News Roundup, Nov. 18 18.11.2014 SFGate: Business & Technology
Halliburton agreed Monday to buy Baker Hughes for about $34.6 billion, uniting two big oil field services providers in a friendly deal only days after a hostile takeover battle appeared imminent. [...] the tie-up raises questions about whether the takeover will survive antitrust scrutiny, given the level of consolidation that it promises within the oil production services business. Facebook Inc. is testing a version of its social network that will let people communicate and collaborate at work, a person familiar with the matter said, taking on tools from Microsoft Corp. and Salesforce.com Inc. The product, which is in trials at Facebook and several other companies, will probably debut publicly in a few months, said the person, who asked not to be named because the information is private.

The right has won control of the English-speaking world - thanks to the weakness of the left | Jason Wilson 14.11.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
Over the last three decades, leftwing parties in the English-speaking world have taken on much of the rights antidemocratic programme and lost their souls Besides the 5-Eyes spying agreement , the English-speaking democracies of the North Atlantic and the South Pacific are frequently said to have a few things in common. British prime minister David Cameron recited them perfectly before the Australian parliament on Friday: open economies and open societies, a free press, and real democracy and the rule of law safeguarded by liberal institutions. These fantasies underpin the canonical history of what the rightwing calls the Anglosphere . Conservative thinktankers get misty-eyed when they hear speeches like these, which downplay the way in which these English traditions were imposed by settler colonists on countries stolen from their indigenous inhabitants. The Australian prime minister, Tony Abbott, did just that in his introduction to Camerons visit: Its hard to think that back in 1788 [Sydney] was ...

Direct Action is here. Now Tony Abbott can finally move on from doomed tribalism | John Quiggin 30.10.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
There are really two debates on climate change: one on action, the other on the semantics of carbon pricing. Both have been resolved, albeit in an unfortunate way As an economic researcher, most of my work focuses on uncertainty. In particular, I study the problem of unforeseen contingencies, or, in ordinary language, surprises.
