Russiagate: The Toxic Gift That Keeps On Giving. All smears are boomerang smears. That is why anyone worth a damn does not engage in it. That goes for the Russia-Gaters, the left/right smears on Gabbard, the years of left/right smears on Assange, the attacks on the Green Party and now the Russia narrative attacks on Sanders. Falling into line with the secret police will not save anyone. Red Scares target dissenters and promote war. Isn’t the history clear enough?”- Richard Moser. The smacks of desperation and dishonesty. Of course, the role played by the preposterous Russiagate conspiracy theory has always been the same: to be a distraction from issues that really matter. At best, it makes a mountain out of molehill. At worst, it’s straight

Four Reasons Inequality Isn't What You Think It Is. One of the defining characteristics of advocates for socialism is an obsession with equality. According to this line of thinking, inequality is the central problem of the modern world, and it demands a centralized solution. Thus, socialists - and more mild social democrats - push to use the power of the state to force the transfer of wealth from the productive and successful to those who are less so. This is the way to achieve social justice, they contend. But inequality is not the societal plague that socialists allege it to be. The Source of Wealth: Consumer Judgment. Contrary to popular belief, the way to make money is not to exploit one’s customers. The reality is the opposite. Wealth is.

SoftBank 'Vision Fund' Chief Carried Out Weinstein-Style Sabotage Campaign To Sideline Rivals. Over the past six months, the words "SoftBank", "Vision Fund" and "WeWork" have become emblematic of the excessive valuations of Silicon Valley "unicorns". When a series of anonymously-sourced reports by WSJ and several rivals claimed investors were valuing WeWork at just one-fifth of its massive $47 billion, the company quickly pulled the IPO, before admitting that without the money from the IPO and a $6 billion credit line that was contingent on the dealing going through, WeWork would be insolvent in a matter of months.

Paying The Price For Our Faustian Bargain With China. Roughly forty years ago we and the Chinese entered into a true Faustian bargain. We agreed to open our markets to Chinese goods, and the Chinese in exchange opened their nation to foreign investment and manufacturing. We were motivated by greed. Factories in China would have access to seemingly unlimited quantities of low cost workers. It did not hurt that those factories would be unencumbered by unions, workplace safety laws or environmental regulations. The Chinese were motivated by a desire to survive. The Soviet Union was tottering toward extinction, destroyed not by American forces on the battlefield but by rot and inefficiency in its economy. The Chinese would escape that fate by gi.
