Unintented consquences: Economic Benefits of "Citizens United"

4 posts / 0 new

Does anybody but me think that one of the dumbist Supreme Court decisions might be stimulating the economy? The Republicans and corporations do not want the economy to get better so Obama will not get re-elected. The millions or billions of dollars are being funneled into the domestic economy stimulating it!

Not really though. Most of that cash is going through the hands of a media mogul and straight into an off shore account or an insider's market.

The report explains that while global wealth has more than doubled since the year 2000, the vast majority of overall growth has gone to those who were already wealthy.
