What caused the wealth gap?

What caused the wealth gap? | Demand Transformation | Scoop.it

Protesters are furious over America's growing income disparity.-- The U.S. is facing a structural crisis that goes beyond the bursting of the financial bubble. The remedies, therefore, must also go beyond what I regard as gimmickry of a stimulus package, or a temporary tax cut – or, for that matter, even less relevant permanent tax cuts. So I try to peel back the story actually into the 1970s – from then until today.

Rich and Tasty: Recipes for the New Class Warfare – Boing Boing | Demand Transformation | Scoop.it

When it comes time to eat the rich, these masses will not be satisfied with a Koch and a smile, or with Michael Dell on rye. These are people who went deep into debt stocking their kitchens with Italian espresso makers and complicated food processors. They are not going to want to face the revolution lacking knowledge in the finer points of preparing and presenting the new cannibalistic cuisine. This is the guide the 99% will turn to when the opportunity to feast on the fortunate presents itself.

Occupy Wall Street, Denounce the Democrats | Black Agenda Report | Demand Transformation | Scoop.it

It is Barack Obama, not George W. Bush, who made a lie of the dictum that Social Security is the “third rail of politics.” It is now in the slaughterhouse along with all other government programs, waiting its turn to be eviscerated. The Democrats have excelled in committing the crimes which Republicans have only dreamed about, and they will only grow bolder if they are not called to account.
