TTIP: A Charter for Deregulation, an Attack on Jobs and qan End to Democracy, 58 pp - by John Hilary

Bay Area Cities Afflicted with Sports Arena Envy - by Gil Villagran, MSW
The great American practice of giving massive subsidies to insatiable billionaires, most often in oil, agribusiness and weapon manufacturing, is especially exciting in the field of major league sports teams. Exciting because as it is unquestionably well known, a city without its own major league team is no more than minor league, barely on the map of so-called destination cities. So cities compete with the public's money to entice billionaire sports team owners for "our team" to play in "ou...

City Bicycle Program Dysfunction Continues - by Steve Schnaar
For years the City used to give away unclaimed bicycles to youth in need through any qualified nonprofit, with the Bike Church hosting the distributions. In 2012 the City secretly terminated the program, with bikes going for a while to a for-profit business, later being auctioned off in LA. Responding to public pressure, City Council agreed to reinstate distributions to youth, but schemed to keep the Bike Church out of the picture. Ironically, the new program managers are having a hard time a...

Imagine a presidential candidate not stuffing her pockets and legitimating the status quo of lobbyists writing laws, unending wars, tax evasion by corporations in the Cayman Islands, exploding inequality, statistical acrobatics on job creation and pipelines and coal trains! Alternatives of community centers and reduced working hours, person-oriented work, qualitative growth instead of quantitative growth, a service and caring economy, exchanging roles and true redistribution should be encour...
