The Dangers of Obama Aiming Too Low on Inequality Issues in the State of the Union

AlterNet - By Steven Rosenfeld - Jan. 29 (Opinion) - Wage suppression is not just an issue facing the poor. It has been a decades-long trend across every American income bracket except for the very top. Oxfam recently released a global report on inequality and said that had the share of income going to the richest one percent stayed the same as 1980, each American would have about $6,000 more today. That equates to an 11 percent raise for the average U.S. income of roughly $51,000.

Since NAFTA, our trade deficits totaled over $8 trillion. We've lost millions of good manufacturing jobs and de-industrialized our economy.

Massive Unemployment: Proof That Global Capitalism Doesn't Work

AlterNet - By Steve Fraser, Joshua B. Freeman, - Sep. 12 (News Analysis) - In the coming years, might we see the return of a basic American horror at the phenomenon of joblessness? And might it drive Americans to begin to ask deeper questions about the system that lives and feeds on it? After all, we now exist in an under-developing economy.
