    Don’t Look Now, But Our Country Is In A Place It Hasn’t Been For Well Over 100 Years

    A few definitions to tee this up:

    Oligarchy: A society where power is in the hands of very few people, usually determined by wealth, corporate and family ties, and the military.

    The Gilded Age: From the 1870s to the early 1900s, our country was run by very few people (think John D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, Andrew W. Mellon, Andrew Carnegie) but also marked by extreme poverty. The term was coined by Mark Twain and Charles Dudley Warner to mean “an era of serious social problems disguised by thin gold gilding.”

    So … are we there yet?!

    When ‘They’ Say Cutting Taxes On The Rich Means Job Creation, They’re Lying. Just Ask This Rich Guy.

    Meet Nick Hanauer. He’s a very wealthy man, his family owns a lot of things, and he’s invested in some big companies that started out small (ahem … Amazon…). He’s got a few things to say about who the job creators really are in our country, and it goes totally against the standard trope you usually hear from politicians and talking heads. Delightfully so.
