Don't Ask! Don't Tell Economic Plan


America cannot have it both ways: expect consumer demand to pick up and have the wealth in this country concentrated in the top 10% of the population.

What has gone wrong did not start in 2008. It started decades ago when the government instituted the first "don't ask, don't tell" policy; don't ask if free markets are being overtaken by oligopolies and don't tell that they are.

Demand in the future cannot be fueled by debt. It needs to be fueled by a fairer distribution of income. Enforcing anti-tust laws against oligopolies will do this.

  1. Wow, I didn't think anyone else realized. What do you propose be done with the right wing propoganda machine working for these oligopolies forcing the debate to be between far-right and center-right policies that only further enforce the oligopolies? Educate the hateful masses? To me it's just the same natural evolution of capitalism to socialism that Marx predicted - it was only a matter of time before the inherited wealth needed to be "thinned" again.
