Most Serious Crisis in Modern History. Lead Articles

CRG E-Newsletter

Dear Global Research Member and Newsletter Subscriber

We are at the cross-roads of the most serious crisis in modern history. The global financial crisis is intimately related to the war. Moreover, this plunge in stock market values occurs at the crossroads of a major military adventure. The repercussions of the war and the economic crisis on people’s lives in America and around the world are dramatic.

Global Research is committed to providing an in-depth coverage of the ongoing crisis.

It is our hope that our endeavors will contribute to curbing the tide of media disinformation, ultimately with a view to eradicating poverty, restoring social justice and establishing an enduring peace in the Middle East.   

It is, therefore, important that the articles published by Global Research reach a broad readership. 
While Global Research operates on a shoe string budget compared with the well-endowed establishment think tanks, we have more readers than the powerful Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) (see graph)

The response from our readers has been tremendous and we thank you for your feedback and encouragement. However, with increasing numbers turning to Global Research as their choice for alternative news, we ask that you make a donation of your choice so that we may continue to deliver the information that matters to you.
