Capitalism Is In Trouble

Capitalism today is in trouble, and even the most ardent defenders of free enterprise are saying so. Consider Jonathan Tepper, founder of Variant Perception, “a research group for asset managers.” It would seem hard to find anyone more devoted to unregulated markets. Yet, even so, in a new book, The Myth of Capitalism: Monopolies and…

An “Investing in America Tax”

Trump and the Crimson Congress continued to plunder the United States last year by lowering the federal Corporate tax to 21% recently in 2018.  Much of this was paid for by increasing taxes on the middle class and by leaving projects unfunded.  As a result, many struggling working people have already been hit with these…

America’s Structurally Impoverished

I’m sick of hearing about how we have “a good economy” because of a low unemployment rate.  Why is no one asking the critical question, “How many of those people are structurally impoverished?”  Or another less economic way to say the same is, “How many of those jobs provide dignity to the worker?” In this…

Uber & Lyft: Unfair and Unsafe

I’ve done some work for both Uber and Lyft over the last 4 months.

In it the two argue that the continued glorification of CEOs is absurd, and a measure of how corporatized our…

Chomsky: It’s the Corporations, Stupid

There is a fascinating article over at the Institute for New Economic Thinking’s web publication, ineteconomics.org. In it, Lynn Parramore interviews the remarkable Noam Chomsky, linguist, scientist, and activist. Among the many things that Professor Chomsky says is that the real villain in the 2016 election may not have been so much Russia as the…

The Politics of Compassion

by Colin McGrath I am troubled. Pretty deeply, actually. There is a great hate emerging in this country. Yes, the Nazis in Charlottesville were abhorrent and the recent Anti-Islamic rant and vandalism done here in my home state of Arizona by a mother and her two young children were especially troubling. I could go on…
