  •  Great point. What is the purpose of the economy? (6+ / 0-)

    To advantage an ever smaller elite or to enrich everyone lives? We have allowed the economy we all depend on to be privatized.

    The arguments about an economy that doesn't require "skills" doesn't require sharing in the in the profits is a not a valid argument. There was plenty of work for southern slaves until they were freed and had to be paid. The former slave holders had to create a new economy that would insure all power and rewards for them. And they did.

    Our financial overlords have rigged the game and put the control of the economy beyond democracy's reach. Even low skill work makes somebody rich, helps support an enterprise, and should help support a community.
