Who Will Compete With Energy Companies in the Future? Apple, Comcast, and You

Mother Jones - By Todd Woody - Nov. 05 (Special Report) - Being a utility executive used to be a sweet gig. State regulators told you how much you could charge your customers for electricity and dictated your profit margin. Your job was to build big power plants, or buy energy from those that do, and distribute it your customers. And those customers weren't exactly going anywhere. After all, you owned the transmission lines that delivered your electrons to their homes. In other words, it was a bit like sitting in the corner suite of AT&T, circa 1981, when Ma Bell was the only game in telephone town. Those days are over.

Washington Post - By Zachary A. Goldfarb - Oct. 17 (Comment) - The deal reached by Congress on Wednesday to end the government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling averts a financial catastrophe but leaves the weakened U.S. economy facing new threats.

In Shutdown and Debt Ceiling Showdown, GOPers Ignore Their Party's Own Advice

Mother Jones - By David Corn - Oct. 15 (Comment) - In March, the Republican Party released a 97-page report on its future prospects that chairman Reince Priebus had commissioned following the 2012 election. The party called the study its Growth and Opportunity Project report , but most members of the politerati referred to it as an autopsy. The hard-hitting study—authored by former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, former Bush II press secretary Ari Fleischer, and a few other prominent GOPers—fingered what had gone wrong for the Rs and provided a roadmap for the coming years. But the party's recent excursion into the government shutdown/debt ceiling quagmire shows that few members of its national wing absorbed the lessons the party's coroners had assembled. After convening in-depth focus groups of voters in Iowa and Ohio who used to call themselves Republicans, polling Republican Hispanic voters, consulting assorted pollsters, and surveying political practitioners at the local and national level, the group made some obvious ...
