Series | A Living Earth Economy, Part 3: How to Break the Power of Money

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Banner%20Corporate%20Accountability.jpg

We can refuse to accept the pervasive, but false, claims that money is wealth and a growing GDP improves the lives of all.

http://www.yesmagazine.org/new-economy/how-to-break-the-power-of-money-20160810/power-of-money.gif/image Aug 10, 2016 | Our current political chaos has a simple explanation. The economic system is driving environmental collapse, economic desperation, political corruption, and financial instability. And it isn’t working for the vast majority of people.

It serves mainly the interests of a financial oligarchy that in the United States dominates the establishment wings of both the Republican and Democratic parties. So voters are rebelling against those wings of both parties—and for good reason.

As a society we confront a simple truth. An economic system based on the false idea that money is wealth—and the false promise that maximizing financial returns to the holders of financial assets will maximize the well-being of all—inevitably does exactly what it is designed to do:

  • Proportion of psychopath corporate executives 'similar to prison population'
  • How much of a psychopath is Donald Trump? Worse than Hitler, apparently.

Tuesday 13 September 2016 | Around one in five corporate bosses are psychopaths - a proportion similar to that among prisoners - according to a new study.

Research conducted by forensic psychologist Nathan Brooks from Bond University found 21 per cent of 261 corporated professionals had clinically significant psychopathic traits.

Characteristics such as an inability to empathise, superficiality and insincerity are all associated with the condition.

The TPP is Dead: The People Defeat Transnational Corporate Power

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/Banner%20Corporate%20Accountability.jpg

The defeat of the TPP is a tremendous victory that should propel us forward. It shows organized people have power even in the US oligarchy. We need to build on this power, continue our unity as a movement of movements and demand that the people's agenda becomes the political agenda, not the agenda of big business and the wealthy oligarchs. It is time for people power to rule. We still have a lot of work to do, but we should celebrate this great victory and move to set a people's agenda for the United States.

We have proven that corporate cash/advertising and major investors are - not - necessary to fund a news reporting organization. The result is a news source that people actually trust.

It also means that we have to fight for funding. So we fight, with a clear conscience.

We need more of you to help. ASAP.

11/11/2016 | The Obama administration faced reality on Friday when they recognized the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) would not be ratified by this Congress. The TPP is dead.

How did people power win?

We have worked to stop the TPP and other Obama trade agreements for more than five years. We were part of the 'movement of movements', the largest coalition ever opposing a corporate trade agreement, which stopped it. It included all sorts of activists who work on human rights, worker rights, the environment, climate change, Internet freedom, health care, food safety and more.
