Bill Moyers talks to Paul Krugman about Thomas Piketty’s new book, Capital in the Twenty-First Century and discusses the 1%, income inequality, consolidation of wealth, inherited wealth and the future of the United States as an oligarchy.
Can we end our dependence on oil already? It’s not about energy, it’s not about freedom, it’s not about security… it’s about money and greed. THAT IS ALL!
so, basically, we’re all F’d, completely totally F’d.
Is CEO pay out of control?
FUCK YES IT IS!!!
The worst part is that Sumner Redstone doesn’t provide any actual service that benefits either company, he & Rupert Murdoch are simply the last tycoons of a former age, adding to their already absurd wealth, while all of these companies struggle and continue to layoff lower level employees.
In fact, Philippe Dauman & Sumner Redstone took a combined total compensation of $73.4 million in 2013 while Paramount Pictures, part of Viacom, let go 110 employees that same year. I wonder what percentage of their increased compensation equals the combined wages lost by those 110 employees?

* The majority (66 percent) of low-wage workers are not employed by small businesses, but rather by large corporations with over 100 employees;
* The 50 largest employers of low-wage workers have largely recovered from the recession and most are in strong financial positions: 92 percent were profitable last year; 78 percent have been profitable for the last three years; 75 percent have higher revenues now than before the recession; 73 percent have higher cash holdings; and 63 percent have higher operating margins (a measure of profitability).
* Top executive compensation averaged $9.4 million last year at these firms, and they have returned $174.8 billion to shareholders in dividends or share buybacks over the past five years.
In the U.S., it’s Tax Day. Let’s see just how fucked up this country is and how unfair the tax system is to the 99%!
Our “democracy” is a broken system.
GET MONEY OUT OF POLITICS!!!
