"The second is to reform the corporate structure of larger companies to include some directors elected by consumers, rather than just shareholders. Not all the directors, like in the Cooperative Group, and not even a majority, but just a small portion of the board — say one third." This isn't the soviet union. These entities exist for one reason, to make money.
Thank god the United States isn't the EU.
I remember learning about quite a few people who challenged the scientific consensus. One name the comes to mind is Eratosthenes and Magellan regarding the shape of the earth. Isn't the foundation of science really challenging scientific consensus?
The premiss of the article is fundamentally flawed as the 40 hour work wee really never existed, especially if you had the drive to be successful.
Bing is grrreat! for 99% of my searches. The only thing lacking in Bing is that if you search for something technical - like looking for a programming answer on a message board. Google is far better at providing message board results and therefore usually better for 'technical' questions.
Not sure why you wouldn't just flag the picture as "deleted" in the database like every other social networking site.
Amazing who you take a discussion about federal income tax and pull the old bait an switch. According to your own article the top 20% pay 80% of all federal income taxes.
I agree/disagree. When you look at America (yes, a representative republic) we are into a couple of 'entitlement' generations. Sadly this has lead to 50% of Americans not paying federal income tax. The 'takers' are starting to outnumber the 'makers' and along with that people will choose to take what isn't their because they feel entitled to it. It is actually quite funny because these are usually the ones who preach 'equality' but then favor policies that treat citizens unequal, such as a millionaire tax. These people do this because they feel entitled to that persons personal property. It is pretty sickening. Democracy doesn't work because you can always vote to take someones private property.
First time accepted submitter emakinen writes "The new Citizens' Initiative service started today in Finland. On the Open Ministry website, anyone can present an idea for a law or initiative. If the idea wins enough support, the ministry's volunteer workers will work on it and turn it into a presentable bill for the MPs to chew over. If 50,000 citizens of voting age agree on a bill Parliament has to take it up."
What does the wife being pregnant have to do with possible illegal activities?
sciencehabit writes "New research suggests that the upper classes are more likely to behave dishonorably than those lower on the economic spectrum. The rich are more likely to cheat, steal, and even disobey traffic laws than those with less money and power (abstract). Curiously, in one experiment, Prius drivers also behaved badly, regardless of their wealth."
Time for a class action lawsuit against HP, ect. I am paying for the ink. If I send a job to the printer I expect to use the ink for that job, not extra stuff that HP doesn't inform me about. Either pay for my ink to do this or remove the "feature".
Terrible decision. Network neutrality (or lack there of) is a technical decision. Don't need people who don't understand the technical details and the impact of such a policy make those decisions. This is nothing more than lobbying and politics being played with the SEC which is a body that should remain politic free.
Just what we need, more government to deal with too much government. How about TSA agents who are working in the back room are not allowed to have cell phones and have that law punishable by automatic termination and 90 days in jail. That would solve the possible problem of cell phone cameras overnight.
Social agenda? Like Solyndra.........
