Inflation: Fresh insights debunk conservative myths

September 27, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Mainstream news media and mainstream politicians have been misleading the public about what has caused the current inflation — and what to do about it.  They — and the Federal Reserve (the bank-owned nationwide entity that decides how much money to circulate) — misdiagnose the causes, so their remedies actually hurt ordinary people. I’m posting here some articles that provide true information, fresh insights, and suggestions for solving this economic problem in ways that help ordinary people.   This video — in less than 3 minutes — DEBUNKS 4 Myths About Inflation.  Robert Reich explains economic realities in clear and […]

YES! We really CAN organize grassroots movements to solve big, hard, scary problems!

September 1, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Many important issues (climate, nuclear weapons, etc.) are big and scary to think about, so many people do not want to think about them.  Many people feel that those problems are so big and are imposed upon us by powerful forces (big businesses, the Pentagon, etc.).  This power imbalance causes many people feel that they are powerless to solve the problems because the problems were created and are perpetuated by forces that are so big and powerful, and that we are too small and weak to oppose them.  It’s easier to simply avoid dealing with them.  As a result, the […]

Inflation: Instead of blaming workers or other excuses, recognize CORPORATE GREED as a major cause!

June 30, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

While some politicians and some powerful voices in mainstream media are blaming our current inflation on underpaid workers finally getting some modest pay increases — or vague “supply chain” problems — a very serious cause of inflation is BIG BUSINESS GREED and HIGH PROFITS and OVERPAID TOP EXECUTIVES.  This is true especially in oil companies, which are overcharging ordinary people and getting away with it. Extremely rich people and big businesses are allowed to PAY FAR LESS THAN THEIR FAIR SHARE OF TAXES (in some cases, ZERO taxes) because they fund politicians’ campaigns and corrupt Congress into giving them immorally […]

Minimum wage is trapped too low. CEO/worker pay gap increases widely.

January 17, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

For many years Congress has refused to raise the minimum wage. Many states refuse to raise their minimum wage above the federal minimum. Meanwhile, extremely rich people have gotten extremely more rich. Rich people and big businesses fund Congressional candidates’ campaigns. We must get Big Money out of election campaigns. And we need the news media to report more vigorously on the horrible inequality between extremely rich people and everybody else. See this powerful image about the VERY LOW federal minimum wage and the EXTREMELY HIGH INCOMES of corporate executives: (It is safe to open this image, even if you […]

The July 2021 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series helps you and other people make more progress when we work on issues you care about.
