This past weekend I've immersed myself in two David vs Goliath stories. The first is Elizabeth Warren's book A Fighting Chance. The formation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau -- a new government agency with some teeth to prevent the kinds of deceptive practices in lending products that caused so much heartache over the past few years was a very long shot. The banks spent $500 million doll ...

Law and Order: Three Words That Can Help Republicans Win in November–and 2016

Aug 15 2014 10:47pm CDT | Source: Big Government

When urban riots and campus unrest erupted across the nation in the mid-1960s, the GOP made a powerful case for “law and order.” That no-nonsense message catapulted Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, and dozens of other Republicans into high public office. Riding a wave of public revulsion against disorder, Reagan was elected governor of California in 1966, and in the more tumultuous year of 1968, Nixon won the White House. As Pat Buchanan chronicles in The Greatest Comeback: How Richard N ...

One of the most unnoticed labor trends in the past few decades has been the rise of "just-in-time scheduling," the practice of scheduling workers' shifts with little advance notice that are subject to cancelation hours before they are due to begin. Such scheduling practices mean that already low-wage workers often have fluctuating pay checks, leading them to rely on shady lenders or credit cards to make ends meet. Such consequences especially affect women and worker ...

Happy Birthday, Social Security - But Stay Away From That Cake!

August 14th is Social Security's birthday, and I keep having this nightmare. In it, 300 million Americans are singing Social Security's praises and celebrating its 79th year. Then a giant cake is rolled out while everybody sings "Happy Birthday" - and out pops Alan Simpson, looking like Freddy Krueger and swinging a buzz saw with the words "chained CPI" painted on it.
