Basic Income - Basic Income Ontario Pilot

How Basic Income is a Subsidy for the One Percent

The Province of Ontario is planning to implement a Basic Income pilot. The 1% loves the idea of Basic Income because it will guarantee their profits from continuing planned obsolesce and higher automation (Elon Musk: Robots will Take Your Jobs and the Government Will Pay Your Salary). The left loves Basic Income because, as always, it doesn’t matter to them if you are producing Monsanto’s GMO soy (as in Argentina), or oil (as in Venezuela or the NDP party accepting more pipeline construction in Canada) as long as they get a slice of the cake. The economy needs to...

US Renewable Energy Grows, but Government Corruption Stalls Growth

Renewable energy grew by 50% from 2007 to 2013, and now accounts to 12% of all energy use in the United States. However, uncertain and unclear energy policy stalled what could have been a real green energy revolution, according to New Grid. How much of a role did ALEC play? In 2013 alone, lazy and corrupt state legislators who get paid by ALEC to introduce laws written by corporations introduced 77 laws for big oil. In 2014, ALEC will look to tax homeowners who install solar panels. Senator Ted Cruz said on Monday that he will fight to deregulate fracking, approve Keystone...

Report: 85 People Own Half The World

The rich are getting extremely richer. An Oxfam report shows that only 85 humanoids own as much as the bottom half of the entire world. As End Neoliberalism exposes in the book Tax and Regulate the One Percent, the super rich incurred record profits for 3 consecutive years (2010, 2011, and 2012) after taxpayers bailed them out in 2008. Without progressive taxes and regulations, the ultra rich added $525 billion in wealth in 2013 and prospects show that they will get even richer in 2014! How much of this wealth will be subsidized by the public? Find out in Tax and Regulate the...
