America is Regressing into a Developing Nation for Most People - Evonomics

America is Regressing into a Developing Nation for Most People - Evonomics | MDG Sustainable Education | Scoop.it
You’ve probably heard the news that the celebrated post-WW II beating heart of America known as the middle class has gone from “burdened,” to “squeezed” to “dying.”  But you might have heard less about what exactly is emerging in its place.

In a new book, The Vanishing Middle Class: Prejudice and Power in a Dual Economy, Peter Temin, Professor Emeritus of Economics at MIT, draws a portrait of the new reality in a way that is frighteningly, indelibly clear:  America is not one country anymore. It is becoming two, each with vastly different resources, expectations, and fates.

“If these kids are the future, we are screwed”: Berkeley students demand take-home midterm exam instead of an in-class test because their “well beings” are hurt

“If these kids are the future, we are screwed”: Berkeley students demand take-home midterm exam instead of an in-class test because their “well beings” are hurt | MDG Sustainable Education | Scoop.it
The termites continue gnawing deeper into the foundations of American universities. Here's a new incident that happened at the University of California at Berkeley, and shows not only the deep sense of entitlement that many students have, but their lack of respect for both their professors and the way education is supposed to work. When…
Вукашин Б Васић's insight:
Шта бисте ви урадили да сте професор? Студент који чека да тест почне?
Група студената на Берклију прекида колоквијум и затева да им се тест замени есејем који ће радити код куће уз образложење да су под стресом због земљотреса и урагана који су погодили Мексико.
Шта бисте ви урадили да сте професор? Студент који чека да тест почне?
да ли је то слобода говора? да ли је слобода говора када вас прекидају и етикетирају за расизам и неемпатичност?
За мене лично ствар је кристално јасна. Као економиста уверен сам да смо прешли тачку после које нема повратка. Као човек још увек се надам да нисам у праву.
Само на чудо може спасти. Божанско.
Ко има ухо да чује нека чује.

"All people in decision-making positions for school policies should be required to sit through at least one school day and experience first-hand what is required of children today. Then they will have a better idea of what is appropriate and what isn’t."

Understanding Today’s Stagnation

Understanding Today’s Stagnation | MDG Sustainable Education | Scoop.it
Ever since the ‘Great Recession’ of 2007-2009, the world’s major central banks have kept short-term interest rates at near-zero levels. In the United States, even after the Federal Reserve’s recent increases, short-term rates remain below 1%, and long-term interest rates on major government bonds are similarly low. Moreover, major central banks have supported markets at a record level by buying up huge amounts of debt and holding it.

Why is all this economic life support necessary, and why for so long?

Trickle-Down Economics is Not True Capitalism - Evonomics

Trickle-Down Economics is Not True Capitalism - Evonomics | MDG Sustainable Education | Scoop.it
Ayn Rand would likely be deeply unhappy with the state of American capitalism today. Not just because of an overweening state, large budget deficits, and interventions in the economy such as Obamacare—the issues that so excite her disciples in the Republican Party today—but also because of the morphing of the U.S. economy into a playground of crony capitalism recognizable from the pages of Atlas Shrugged. Rand would have seen the growing reliance of businesses on Washington for corporate welfare, and of politicians on businesses for campaign contributions, as an unhealthy codependency that distorts the free market she so admired.
