    The economy should be a part of life, not a steamroller crushing self-determination and creativity.

    Here are two aphorisms: A Polish aphorism – You can make fish soup out of an aquarium but can’t make an aquarium out of fish soup.

    and a Chinese aphorism – The person who says it can’t be done shouldn’t interrupt the one whois already doing it.

    Is neoliberalism making fish soup out of economic democracy and social transformation?

    After Reagan, Clinton, Bush, and Cheney, Trump is anchoring the US firmly in darkness. He appointed the CEO of Eli Lilly as Secretary of Health and Human Welfare – after the price of insulin skyrocketed 300% in ten years. Meritocracy and social ethics are trashed as empathy and philanthropy were trashed when the US dropped 7 and a half million tons of bombs on little Vietnam, Death squads and lying to Congress are given a “pass over” as we charge into the new gilded age!
