America been supposedly trying to bring development & greater services to #RuralAmerica. But America’s financiers don’t want #RemoteWork to take hold. But wouldn’t the fanning out of high tech workers give the so-called “lacking incentive” for corporate investment? 🤔😏
Exactly why I don’t want to #DefundThePolice. Rather, focus all that military grade equipment & excessive force tactics on this real & legitimate threat to National Security. @NAACP & @NAACP_LDF might consider THAT for the good of #BlackPeople AND the Country.
The right-wing extremist group known as the Oath Keepers recruits military and law enforcement officials as a means to gain legitimacy and access operational knowledge, says security expert Arie Perliger (@APerliger).
So @wbmosler, as I understand #MMT, taxation is the targeted way to bring down #Inflation by removing excess liquidity. @trussliz says she needed to cut taxes en lieu of slowing growth. If she’s right - which I doubt, how then does the system address inflation & growth in tandem?
If #France is making #FrancophoneAfrique pay for “the infrastructure France built during the colonial period,” why shouldn’t former #French colonies “make” France pay for the use of the land & resources for which said infrastructure was built? 🤔 Creative #Reparations
I wonder how @washingtonpost & @andrewvandam cld do this article w/o mention of the #InsularCases, which make it CLEAR that “US Citizens” in these colonies would NEVER be afforded the full rights & privileges of US Citizenship - because they weren’t majority White? 🤔 #USVI
These boys work 12 hours a day in the Swiss company Nestlé farms in the jungles of Ivory Coast, each carries an average of 3 tons of cocoa for about one dollar.
The company turns this cocoa into Kit Kat, Quality Street & Snickers chocolates & sells one kilogram for about $84!!!.
