Coal, an Outlaw Enterprise

Coal, an Outlaw Enterprise | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
On Nov. 13, federal prosecutors in West Virginia announced that Donald L. Blankenship, the notorious former chief executive of the Massey Energy Company, once Appalachia’s biggest coal producer, was charged with widespread safety violations and deceiving federal inspectors. In 2011, the Mine Safety and Health Administration found that safety violations led to the 2010 explosion that killed 29 miners at the Upper Big Branch mine. Holding the head of a mining company responsible for such violations is an unprecedented move in the coal industry.

Atlas hid: Uber has set up a decoy office to keep drivers away from its shiny new HQ

Atlas hid: Uber has set up a decoy office to keep drivers away from its shiny new HQ | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

As Pando reported earlier this month, Uber’s office on Mission Street has been a focal point for protests by drivers. At first the company tried to keep the barbarians (read: people who make the company worth an estimated ten billion dollars) from the gates, sending firm reminders to drivers that they were not permitted to visit Uber zentrale. When that only seemed to make drivers more pissed, and make Uber look even more like the grand Randroid experiment I’ve previously described it as, the company tried a different tack: doling out bagels and coffee to disgruntled cabbies before shooing them away.

Clay Shirky is not talking about wow ideas; he is talking about holy crap ideas. He explains in entertaining detail how we now have at our disposal tools that are more powerful than the printing press, photographs, and television combined. He lays out how we can now interact with our leaders at the highest levels of government and culture, and we can now cross-interact with the communities that connect to those individuals. He details how we now communicate person-to –person across the world what is happening to each of us in real-time. Clay Shirky is an influential scholar and writer about current internet trends and has a lot of interesting things to say about how this works and affects each of us individually.

How crony capitalism is undermining US entrepreneurship

How crony capitalism is undermining US entrepreneurship | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The Washington Post’s multipart series – led by Jim Tankersley and his team — on America’s struggling middle class is a must-read for policymakers. While I will have more to say on this next week, I did want to highlight the Thursday piece on the apparent decline in US entrepreneurship. Startups, especially those with dreams of expanding, are a huge source of jobs and innovation. They also apply competitive pressure on incumbents firms. Fewer startups means less competitive intensity in the economy. And a crony capitalist relationship between business and government could mean fewer startups. Tankersley:
