Add comment on:The Right to the City and the Greed of the Rich
Julia Lis and Michael Hartmann
Thanks to everyone who resisted the GOP tax giveaway! Unlike the security state, the constitutional state should mean compromises, negotiations, concessions, and countermeasures to reverse exploding inequality and precarious work. The state should represent the public interest and yet is often "the errand boy of the banks" (Bill Moyers). The richest three Americans have more wealth than 150 million! Closing the tax havens, ending tax competition, and prohibiting profit-shifting are necessary for a fair tax system. Indifference is love's enemy.
