A Praise for Marx

1 post / 0 new

Solidarity, social justice and sharing open doors while deregulation and trickle-down mythology lead to exploding inequality and generalized insecurity. Finance market capitalism is the product of speculation and government collusion. Banks and corporations are bailed out with trillions while the real economy languishes. The state is reduced to a trough for the super-rich or an errand boy for the Wall Street banks.

Economics changes with the times. Once saving was the elixir and then spending was the elizir.

Karl Marx asked why capitalism cannot solve poverty, unemployment, exploitation and destruction of the environment. Happy May Day!

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
