How Neoliberalism Gained Hegemony - by Armin Thurnher and Thomas Zotter
The pressing question is why do the masses vote against their own interests and applaud those who champion goals opposed to their well-being or welfare? Ideas prevail because power is on their side, not because they are better...Neoliberalism went from a sect after 1945 to cultural hegemony. Even the World Bank and the World Trade Organization were founded in the Keynesian spirit to regulate international competition. In 1972 the Chamber of Commerce spent $900 million for its propaganda goals.

Wealth as a Problem - by Will Hutton
The wealth of others has become more a problem than an incentive. Capital is blind, Thomas Piketty says. Capital grows faster than the economy.

Piketty proposes bold solutions: a top tax rate up to 80 percent, an effective inheritance tax and a global wealth tax.
