The Non Zero-Sum Society: How the Rich Are Destroying the US Economy
And why Walmart, McDonald's and every hospital in the country should be unionized

Get it? It’s not a zero-sum game. Wealthy Americans would do better with smaller shares of a rapidly-growing economy than with the large shares they now possess of an economy that’s barely moving.
If they were rational, the wealthy would support public investments in education and job-training, a world-class infrastructure (transportation, water and sewage, energy, internet), and basic research – all of which would make the American workforce more productive.
¨      Intelligently projects and sharply focuses quite a few vital pragmatic view of things. if  that is wholeheartedly realized, effective steps taken unreservedly, and pushed forward devoutly,  then alone there could be hope to succeed in putting  a break to the retrograde developments fast taking place, world over, and make a move in the right forward direction .  


Andrea Brower: Reclaiming Our Imaginations from 'There Is No Alternative'

A very thought provoking write-up from a guesstimated intelligent ‘sociologist’; that too providing useful clues for the rightfully righteous directions to be followed; nay, wrong ones to be eschewed.

As is said and believed,-  'Seeing' IS ' believing' ?

Can the same be SO said or believed, of  'imagining'  ??

Very truly said; from every nation's viewpoint, -
the overwhelmingly haunting, and obstinately daunting factors to which all the evils traceable are primarily these:
Mindlessly resorted 'globalization';
Wantonly chosen corrupt mindset, nurturing and leading to corrupt practices; and
last but not least, unscrupulously indulged- in large (-'whole sale')scale 'commercialization' in almost every walk of life and human activity.
In short, at the bottom of it all, is the self-centered and egocentric attitude towards 'life'; and the uttermost disregard/ disrespect to that thing called, 'societal welfare' (in its profound sense).
@ Qimountain
Great article Ms. Brower! I would only add that your thesis is/ or would be just as interchangeable to voting. What you posit about capitalism can be extended to the mind set of those who keep voting for the broken two party dysfunction under the belief that they have no other alternative because they have been conditioned through a mega marketing campaign which is told and retold; they have been brainwashed to think that their vote is only valuable by following the rest of the herd. And snce capitalism is the obvious agenda of some pernicious broken ideal of self worth where one's value as a human being is always measured by their purchase power. The siren call of Madison Avenue tells us that human value is in what you own, the type of car you drive, the house you live in, along with all the toys. So, yes, we do indeed need to reclaim our imaginations for the entire scope of what now passes for value in contemporary culture.
