The Winnower is a platform for instant open-access publication with open post-publication peer review. Posting and open review are free. For a small fee, the site guarantees long-term accessibility and issues the all-important digital object identifier (DOI).

Fabulous read from Thomas Piketty on Germany's own history of debt relief, vs its current stance towards Greece:

"We need to look ahead. Europe was founded on debt forgiveness and investment in the future. Not on the idea of endless penance."
