The blog post by Marc Lavoie contrasts what he perceives as the two main interpretations of the current inflationary tendencies (the 'excessive demand inflation' story and the 'profit inflation' story) and contrasts them with a third interpretation. This interpretation acknowledes rising profits but argues in favor of a different mechanism that centers on changes in the relative composition of costs.

This article provides a contextual framework for understanding the gendered dimensions of the COVID-19 pandemic and its health, social, and economic outcomes. The pandemic has generated massive losses in lives, impacted people’s health, disrupted markets and livelihoods, and created profound reverberations in the home. In 112 countries that reported sex-disaggregated data on COVID-19 cases, men showed an overall higher infection rate than women, and an even higher mortality rate. However, women’s relatively high representation in sectors hardest hit by lockdown orders has translated into larger declines in employment for women than men in numerous countries. Evidence also indicates that stay-at-home orders have increased unpaid care workloads, which have fallen disproportionately to women. Further, domestic violence has increased in frequency and severity across countries. The article concludes that policy response strategies to the crisis by women leaders have contributed to more favorable outcomes compared to outcomes in countries led by men.

Die zunehmende Digitalisierung von Lernmaterialien verstärkt bereits bestehende Problemfelder: Zum einen verschlechtert sich das in den letzten Jahren ohnehin angespannte Verhältnis von geltendem Urheberrecht und alltagsdidaktischer Praxis. Die sich wandelnde Technik macht die digitale Verbreitung, Veränderung und die Wiederaufbereitung bestehender Materi- alien immer einfacher. Lehrer_innen und Schüler_innen bewegen sich damit jedoch oft in rechtlichen Graubereichen oder sogar außerhalb der Grenzen des Urheberrechtes.
