We created the demon Koch brothers. We made them not just our adversaries but our deeply committed enemies, lacking in nuance, matching our simplistic caricatures, who fear us as much as we fear them.

A Snowden accompaniment flotilla of prominent and peace-loving Americans could assemble at the Moscow airport, and fly together from Moscow to Caracas. Snowden could fly from Moscow to Caracas under the protection of our company, like the Fellowship of the Ring.

Dave Johnson | Posted 11.13.2012 | Politics
Dave Johnson

We have a jobs problem, not a deficit problem. The best way to deal with the deficit is to put Americans back to work. The real job creators are working people with money in their wallets. We can't cut our way to growth.

It is not just Wall Street that needs to be occupied and reformed, but Main Street, and the process is already underway in finance, retailing, manufacturing, education and politics. Perhaps this is the time for business schools to step forward and take a radical lead.

Naomi Klein Is Half Right About Capitalism vs. the Climate

Gernot Wagner | Posted 02.05.2012 | Green
Gernot Wagner

It's not about a full-scale assault on human desires, capitalism, and free markets. It's about freeing them in the first place, and in the process freeing all of us to do the right thing. It doesn't get more ethical than that.

Bradley B. Onishi

Perhaps a new song--one more akin to a spiritual cry for justice, rather than a guttural grunge anthem--has begun to been sung. Instead of, "here we are now, entertain us," the chorus beckons for a equality and democracy.
