Okay, let me state upfront that I am completely biased when it comes to running a compelling business: for I believe if you happen to live in the 21st century, your company's stock should be worth money, and you should be able to turn around and sell it.

The Party of Denial

Robert Kuttner

Can the right continue to succeed as the party of unreality? In the recent past, conservatives have denied climate change, as well as evolution. Now, their strategy is to deny the reality of increasing concentration of income and wealth. When Thomas Piketty's book appeared, providing new documentation on increasing capital concentration, the right was temporarily thrown off guard. Some resorted to the claim that inequality was, by definition, earned, and necessary to produce incentives in a capitalist system. But somehow, our market economy did just fine -- better in fact -- back in the 1950s and 1960s with far lower levels of inequality. And much of Europe matches our growth rates with far less inequality. Others simply denied that inequality has been increasing.

The 'Financial Times' Said What...?!

I was dumfounded to read Ariella Budick's comically misguided Financial Times review of the MoMA's Lygia Clark show, calling it, "a curiously hermetic affair." Dismissal of the unknown is not what one hopes to find in an art writer.
