The "economy" doesn't exist in nature. Its rules come from legislatures, courts, and presidents. Those with most influence over making the rules have been the super-wealthy, giant corporations, and Wall Street - which is why for 40 years most economic gains have gone to the top.

First, get big money out of our democracy.

Amazon has added 427,300 employees in 10 months. Jeff Bezos could give every Amazon employee $105,000 and still be as rich as he was before the pandemic. Instead he's denying paid sick leave to his employees, and has already subjected nearly 20,000 warehouse workers to Covid-19.

Demand Congress tax the rich, and shop local.
 
The bottom 50% of Americans owns $0.16 trillion in stocks, the top 1% owns $14.04 trillion.

I repeat, the stock market is not the economy.

In the middle of a pandemic, Walmart and Amazon have hauled in $30B in profit this year, but have still cut hazard pay for their employees.

This is what a rigged system looks like.
 
Sen. David Perdue traded thousands of dollars in bank stocks while serving on the Senate Banking Committee, even as he helped pass bills benefiting the financial industry.

If this isn't corruption, I don't know what is. Georgia voters must vote him out of office on Jan 5.

Trump appointee Judge Stephanos Bibas writes “calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here."

Melbourne had the longest, strictest lockdown in the developed world. Australia has had among the toughest mask and social-distancing mandates. Now, they're reaping the benefits. It's not a choice between public health or freedom. Strict public health measures lead to freedom.
Last night in Australia, 49,000 people gathered to watch a game. In many parts of the world life goes on. In Europe & the US, politicians peddle nonsense about a choice between health and the economy to try to excuse their failure to protect either.

The next time you hear Trump call for "law and order" remember that he has pardoned/commuted:

Michael Flynn (Perjury)

Joe Arpaio (Contempt of Court)

Michael Milken (Fraud)

Roger Stone (Lying to Congress)

Scooter Libby (Perjury)

Eddie Gallagher (War Cimes)

—13 million Americans are unemployed
—12 million have lost their health care
—30 million are at risk of eviction
—8 million have fallen into poverty
—12 million total Covid-19 infections

Meanwhile, you sent the Senate home for vacation.

Spare us.
 
Robert Reich Retweeted ·  
Today I want to give thanks to all those people making the great sacrifice to not travel or be with their extended families to protect others from COVID. I consider this an act of public service, and you have my deepest gratitude.

So let me get this straight: Trump fires officials for telling the truth, but pardons his lackeys for telling lies?

Just a reminder: No human being is illegal on stolen land.

We are blessed to live in the greatest country the world has ever known. Even in a trying year unlike anything we’ve seen before, we are constantly reminded why. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. pic.twitter.com/TkQfXbq5F2

Call me a radical lefty if you'd like, but I refuse to accept a system that enables Jeff Bezos to grow his wealth by $66,000,000,000 in 5 months — during a pandemic that's left 40,000,000 Americans on the brink of eviction.

How can anyone accept a system that enables billionaires to add $931,000,000,000 to their wealth while food lines stretch for miles, with no relief in sight?

If you're spending Thanksgiving alone, it's Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump's fault you can't see your family.

This could have been under control.
 
Forcefully evicting people during a pandemic. Unconscionable.
Literally dragging people out of their homes. This is incredibly sad to see y’all. pic.twitter.com/t093yY2mCZ
 
 
Shouldn’t have been there in the first place. Was already the party of Newt Gingrich and haters when Scarborough signed up. GOP needs to be razed and rebuilt.

If we can afford a $740,000,000,000 military budget, we can surely afford to pay people to stay home to contain Covid.

This year I’m especially thankful for organizers of color in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Arizona.

Take a look at this chart.

The share of the national income going to the super-rich was lowest when union membership peaked.

As the capitalists crushed unions, the rich hoarded wealth and inequality exploded.

To unrig the economy, we must build back a powerful labor movement.

Jeff Bezos net worth in 2009: $6,800,000,000
Jeff Bezos net worth in 2020: $183,800,000,000

Federal minimum wage in 2009: $7.25
Federal minimum wage in 2020: $7.25

If this doesn't convince you our economy is rigged, I don't know what will.
 
Robert Reich Retweeted ·  
It’s Tuesday before Thanksgiving so you should know that if the minimum wage had increased at the rate of productivity since 1960, it would be $22.50. Instead, it’s $7.25.

That's $15.25 per hour that's disappeared from the pockets of low income workers the past 60 years...
 
Robert Reich Retweeted ·  
If you want to know why COVID relief is tied up in Congress, one key reason is that Republicans are demanding legal immunity for corporations so they can expose their workers to COVID without repercussions.

Dems don’t want you to die for a check. That’s what we’re fighting over.

Michael Flynn will face no consequences for lying to the FBI, undermining prosecutors, and betraying the country.

This is the same system that sentenced Crystal Mason to five years in prison for voting when she didn't realize a past felony conviction made her ineligible.

Never forget that Big Pharma has raised the price of insulin by over 1200% since the 1990s and now one in four people with diabetes are forced to ration insulin in order to survive.

When are we going to hold pharma accountable for its extortion?
 
If Republican Senators were personally facing hunger and eviction, how long would it take them to act?

The stock market hitting 30,000 points for the first time ever on a day where 2,216 people died from COVID-19 and in a week where people will be starving on Thanksgiving tells you everything you need to know about our broken system.

So let me get this straight: Michael Flynn will face no consequences for lying to the F.B.I, undermining prosecutors, and betraying the country — while countless people are dying of coronavirus in prison because they were jailed on technicalities or parole violations?

If Amazon workers in Alabama – a strong anti-union state – vote to form a union, it will be a shot heard around the world. If they can negotiate higher wages and better working conditions in the South, it will benefit every worker in America. I strongly support their efforts.

Food lines stretch for miles, 40,000,000 people face eviction, and our Covid death toll is about equal to 9/11 every three days.

It is a crime against humanity that the Senate is on vacation right now.

Meanwhile, the Dow just jumped 400 points and hit a 30,000 milestone for the first time ever.

If that doesn't convince you that the stock market is not a reflection of the economy, I don't know what will.

There are two kinds of capitalism in the world—one controls democracy, the other is controlled by democracy. The first creates widening inequality and poverty. The second features shared prosperity, public investments, and strong safety nets. The right calls the second socialism.
Replying to @RBReich
Socialism is a scare word they've hurled at every advance the people have made. Socialism is what they called public power, social security, deposit insurance, and independent labor organizations. Socialism is their name for anything that helps all people. --Harry Truman, 1952
 
The Dow hits a record high when American families hit the highest rate of hunger in 22 years. American capitalism is totally off the rails.
