text Economic Stagnation and its Mastery by Markus Marterbauer
Corporate profits explode while investments stagnate. Social housing declines with privatization. According to neoliberal theory, higher profits lead to greater investments and more jobs. In truth, higher profits lead to greater use of tax havens, companies buying back their own stock and more speculation on foreign currencies. The state should represent the public interest and yet special or private interests are often in the driver's seat with deregulation, privatization and liberalized mar...

text Placerville Food Coop Workers Need Your Help! by Resist Workplace Bullies
The Placerville Food Coop nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada off Hwy 50 in Placerville Ca. use to be a relaxed mellow place to work. A small community food coop that employed maybe 25 people tops. Placerville has a long history of being a highly conservative area but that is changing quickly and the coop was a place where more liberal minded people could come to connect while enjoying a good organic healthy meal - a hub for the more left minded people in the area to connect and fee...

text The President as Businessman by Rudolf Hickel
Trump's gigantic tax cuts will only benefit the rich. State indebtedness increases on account of neoliberal fiscal policy, not through infrastructure investments. Revenue losses of over six trillion dollars are expected for the first decade after the Trump tax cuts start. In his symbolic politics, Trump sells the illusion that the old order can be restored. Only market efficiency counts for this system, not social justice. Cancelling food, housing and health care benefits is sadism and greed,...

In other words, the City of Oakland currently is not committed to fund eviction defense work once the 2016/2017 contracts expire....

The bizarre billionaire becomes epic disaster when regulation is demonized, social necessities like food stamps and Medicaid are cut in the hundreds of billions and taxes for corporations may be cut in half.
