I hate to talk about this kind of stuff but it still needs to be mentioned. I’m big on transparency so sometimes these discussions will come up. I fund the majority of this site via my own wallet. It makes money from ads, mind you, but it’s really just enough to pay the hosting fees. On top of that, a large majority of the internet uses ad blockers so I’m only getting ad revenue from a fraction of my visitors. As the traffic is growing, the hosting fees are rising and I’m looking for other ways to fund the site. One thing I was looking into was Patreon. …

Jake Brewer, RIP

My Townhall Media colleague Mary Katharine Ham is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met.  She was fortunate enough to meet her match  in a wonderful young man, Jake Brewer. They were wed in 2011. MK and Jake have an adorable daughter, and another child on the way. Jake was tragically lost yesterday as he …

How much damage can a reputation crisis do? Ask Chipotle

Lots of discussion about how much harm a reputation crisis can cause, long and short term. I’ve written on this quite a bit in the past using a study out of UK which showed that the longer term recovery of the share price was directly related to the perception of the character of the leader or leaders as demonstrated by actions they took. That is one of the most important things folks in crisis management need to know. Chipotle is hurting. The gizmodo story makes it painfully clear just how much the e.coli and other food related illnesses have cost them. I give Chipotle executives mixed marks …

After Neoliberalism, What Next?

Jayati Ghosh We may be living through one of those moments in history that future historians will look back on as a watershed, a period of flux that marked a transition to quite different economic and social arrangements. Unfortunately, in human history a ‘moment’ can be a very long time, so long that it could be decades before the final shape of the new arrangements are even evident; and in the interim, there could be many ‘dead cat bounces’ of the current system. What is clear is that the established order – broadly defined as neoliberal globalised finance capitalism – is no longer capable of delivering on its promises of either growth or stability, even as it generates more inequality…

Trump and the Infrastructure of Fascism

Gerald Epstein Infrastructure investment: it’s that economic policy sweet spot that everyone loves to love. Fixing bridges, building roads, modernizing airports, improving mass transportation, keeping lead out of our water: nearly everyone can relate to the need for it and can imagine how much better their lives would be with more of it.  For years, most people have faced crazy-making delays in traffic, long lines at airports, and have seen pictures of bridges collapsing. And the experts agree. Economists and engineers have warned us about the problem for decades.  The most recent report by the American Society of Civil Engineers gave the U.S. a D+ on its infrastructure…

An Empire Upside Down, Part 2

Christy Thornton This is the second part of a three-part article on the United States and Latin America in the Trump era, forthcoming in the July/August issue of Dollars & Sense magazine.

Trade and Multipolarity When Peru’s newly elected President, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, arrived at the White House for a meeting with Trump, the narrative seemed to be one of continuity rather than change. During Kuczynski’s visit, Trump took the time to highlight to reporters his approval of the sale of military…

Early Death in Russia

The Russian mortality crisis underscores the impact of stress on life expectancy. Vladimir Popov and Jomo Kwame Sundaram The transition to market economy and democracy in the Russian Federation in the early 1990s dramatically increased mortality and shortened life expectancy. The steep upsurge in mortality and the decline in life expectancy in Russia are the largest ever recorded anywhere in peacetime in the absence of catastrophes such as war, plague or famine. During 1987-1994, the Russian mortality rate increased by 60%, from 1.0% to 1.6%, while life expectancy went down from 70 to 64 years. Although life expectancy declined from 1987, when Mikhail Gorbachev was still in charge, its fall was sharpest during 1991-1994, i.e., during Boris Yeltsin’s early years. In fact, mortality increased to levels never …
