  1. I am for some reason still skeptical of minimum wage. It makes logical sense that minimum wage regulations only help big corporations who can afford to pay it. Small market players who can't afford it will get eliminated from the market coz of increased cost of business.

  2. ———
    Time to keep our lamps full and wait on the Bridegroom.
    Time to abide in our Heavenly Father that HE may abide in us.
    Time to share the gospel of the Kingdom of GOD & be a disciple of Jesus Christ.
    To be baptized by the Comforter the Holy Spirit..
    Time to wait on HIM.
    Time to trust, lean, seek HIS wisdom, understanding, knowledge.
    Time to love unconditionally, forgive, & repent of all our sins..!!

  3. I realizd that the secret to making a million is making better investment . I always tell myself you don't need that new Car or that vacation just yet and that mindset helps me make more money invest : ng . For example last year I invested 70k in blue chip stocks and crypt0 s ( with the help of my advisor of course ) and made about 380k , but guess what ? I put it back and traded with her again and now I'm rounding up close to a million . Delayed gratification always pays off

  4. The capitalist who exposed the man behind the curtain. This is laughable. He is correct neoliberalism is an unscientific cancer. However social cooperation alone won’t achieve a better economy or a better society. We need a new sociopolitical praxis.

  5. I'm not buying into this. There are too many people not working, and too many jobs available with good companies that treat employees very well and pay well. This is a .01 percenter making money off of speeches telling you how oppressed you are and we should thank him for opening our eyes, as he then gets driven/flown home to his mansion. nah.

  6. People have realized since high school that success is networking. Popularity is the key to success. If Rolls Royce tells me one day they will sponsor me if I can convince x amount of people to invest in our brand, then suddenly they will invest in me, I suddenly meet their criteria. This world is a fucking joke. What did Carlin say? “It’s called the American dream because you have to be asleep to believe it.” That hasn’t changed it’s just gotten slightly shiftier.

  7. Economics is an evil word. Economic is a mind set that ‘regulates’ the production team. The back breaking workers. Meanwhile CEOs get filthy rich. Reinvesting $0 to its work force.

  8. Baseball players who get to start on third base consistently outperform players who have to run all three bases even the ones with much greater skill.
