Commentary :: Social Welfare
Video: Robert Pollin on Occupy Movement and Demands
02 Nov 2011
Social justice, solidarity and sharing open doors while unrestrained deregulation lead to exploding inequality and generalized insecurity. Unlike a chair, an idea can be shared by a whole people.
The Occupy movement has changed the discourse - from the debt to economic justice. As economist Richard Wolff explains, credit replaced rising wages in the 1970s. Unaffordable education, housing and health care replaced the imperative social safety net. For 150 years from 1820 to 1970, wages increased every decade. Since the 1970s, the CEOs were the only ones to profit from rising productivity (cf. www.rdwolff.com).
