  •  'The new global economy' (8+ / 0-)

    needs to work both ways labor has to organize gflobally. As someone who made stuff for a living and had to compete with cheap overseas imports in the Clinton era I had to find another way to earn a living.  I thought then with all the bs. of  rising boats and inevitable that labor would have to globally stand up and be more then just a profit loss.

    •  That's the key (8+ / 0-)

      There needs to be a functional internationally based labor movement. Also, there needs to be internationally agreed upon standards for working conditions and the impact of industry on the environment.  In short, we need everything that the Koch boz hate.

        say the Democratic version of free market fundies The Third Way neocons that are in control of our party and this administration have any love for labor or the common good. Seems your choice is Goldman Sach's along with GE or the Koch bros either way were going to get more of this inevitable free market corporate  race to the top. 'The world as we find it'  is the only world they care about as its the world that they work for not ours, they fight for the Markets of mass destruction and call it reality, pragmatic or inevitable.  They are all, no matter if there D's or R's, just variations on the theme of greed is good and we need to win in this brave new world they created out of people's misery and the planets demise.
