On April 3, 2016, a $15 minimum wage was signed into law in California, gradually raising the minimum wage from the current $10/hour to $15/hour by 2022. The same day, a similar law was signed in New York state. Based on the huge billboard in her honor that was seen high above San Pablo Avenue in May, one would be led to believe that Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf single-handedly fought against all odds to bring an increased minimum wage to fruition. Apparently, workers themselves deserve no cr...

The Totalitarianism of the Market
Neoliberalism demands reeducation for its implementation like command socialism. The neoliberal view of the person is exemplified by the figure of the Homo Oeconomicus and is the antipole to the socialist person. All persons are entrepreneurs of themselves. Everything important for persons is acquired through the market. To survive in the competition with others, constant self-optimization is necessary. Relations with others only serve purely economic utilitarian calculations....
