THE AUDACITY OF WTF
Billionaires buying
civic mindshare


May 26, 2012

We’re getting used to what’s been going on during this campaign.  That’s dangerous.  We should be reminding ourselves just how strange it is.

Start with this: Billionaires are buying civic mindshare.

That’s right. A web of plutocrats, guided by a cadre of Karl Roves, is backing their ideal front man, Mitt Romney. Thanks to Frank Luntz, their class is known as the jobs creators, rather than, say, the Robber Barons, and pointing this out is known as class warfare.

THE COMMENCEMENT ADDRESS NO ONE WILL GIVE THIS YEAR

May 24, 2012

Opinion
By Robert Reich


Members of the Class of 2012,

As a former secretary of labor and current professor, I feel I owe it to you to tell you the truth about the pieces of parchment you’re picking up today.

Study shows most state residents favor charter schools


April 13, 2012

Education services, however, have been surprisingly resistant to change.

IN AMERICA AS YOUR PRODUCTIVITY INCREASES, YOUR WAGES DECREASE

April 01, 2012

The drumbeat for economic advancement is filled with warnings that our kids must get a college education to get ahead. So it’s instructive to see where those college educations can lead. Take my friend’s son Dale, for example.
