Elon Musk paid a fortune for Twitter and is now destroying it.

Sam Bankman-Fried started FTX and made billions — then drove FTX into bankruptcy.

The rule used to be: “You break it, you own it.”

Now, if you’re rich enough, it’s the opposite: “You own it, you can break it.”

If the rail industry can afford to spend $25.5 billion this year to buy back its own stock and hand out huge dividends to its wealthy shareholders, please do not tell me it cannot afford to guarantee paid sick days to its workers and provide them with a decent quality of life.
 
On this special Friday, please recall that corporate social responsibility is utter hogwash. robertreich.substack.com/p/why-csr-is-b…

I refuse to accept an economic system in which school teachers pay a higher tax rate than billionaire investors.
 
During this particularly stressful shopping holiday, I’m reminded that the biggest economic story of our time isn’t about supply and demand. It’s about institutions and power. Here’s everything you need to know about the new economy: youtube.com/watch?v=fMmH_2…
 
Your reminder that Amazon warehouse workers suffer serious injuries at twice the rate of competitors.

This worker safety crisis is at its very worst during the holidays.

Don't let the Black Friday deals cloud your thinking.

Your Black Friday reminder that the economy is at least 50% more concentrated now than it was in 2005. Shop small if you can. Please.
 
I know I’ve written about this before, so apologies for repeating myself. But, hell, I'm getting old. So is Joe Biden.

CEO pay at America’s largest public companies is up 1,460% since 1978.

Talk about inflation.
 
 
If inflation comes up at the dinner table tonight, don’t forget to draw attention to the deeper structural driver of inflation: the concentration of the American economy in the hands of a few corporate giants with the power to raise prices, even as they rake in record profits.
 
How do you deal with your right-wing Uncle Bob over the holiday? Watch our video for some pointers.
 
Today is a good day to remind you that whitewashing American history is how white supremacy thrives.
 
Thanksgiving often brings up one of the central dilemmas in my life — trying to find a better balance between work and family.

Finding a better balance? I’d been kidding myself into thinking there was one. robertreich.substack.com/p/thanksgiving…

Here's what Elon Musk fails to understand:

Much of a corporations' value lies in their workers — their knowledge, skills, and ideas.

When he fired half of Twitter’s workforce and drove off even more, he wasn't “cutting costs.”

He was actively destroying what he bought.
 
Amid so much tragedy and uncertainty, what are some things that give you hope and that you are thankful for?
 
Wow, @RBReich, can't believe this is what your son @samreich is doing now... ▶️youtube.com/watch?v=JzFuJD… pic.twitter.com/IHPGo8LBtR
Replying to @dropout @samreich
It’s such a shame to see yet another massive media platform fall under the control of a right-wing billionaire. P.S. @samreich — you and I are going to be talking about this over the holidays.
 
In a sane world, being pro-life would mean being pro-Medicare for All, pro-gender-affirming care, pro-Green New Deal, and pro-gun safety.
 
Researchers have estimated that if we still had a federal assault weapons ban, we would see 70% fewer mass shooting deaths.

S-E-V-E-N-T-Y PERCENT.

Reinstating it should be a no-brainer.
 
Out of control speculation led to the Great Crash of 1929.

Wall Street deregulation led to the financial crisis of 2008.

Crypto delusion led to the crypto crash in 2022.

The worst is yet to come — just look at FTX.

All Ponzi schemes topple eventually. Crypto is no different.
 
Do you have any “Uncle Bobs” — opinionated rightwing relatives whose belligerence will almost certainly wreck your family get-together? How do you plan to deal with them this year? robertreich.substack.com/p/office-hours…
Office Hours: How will you deal with your Uncle Bob over Thanksgiving?

Live Nation and Ticketmaster merged in 2010. Now the company has the power to exploit customers — and little can be done to stop them.

Meanwhile, the Live Nation's CEO made as much as $70 million in recent years.

When huge companies merge, the only winners are super-rich execs.

What's next after the midterms?

What should Democrats do in the lame-duck session before Republicans take over the House?

Should Joe Biden run in 2024?

@RBReich sat down with @RoKhanna to discuss all this and more ⬇️

A record $16.7 billion was spent on the midterms.

Billionaires like Peter Thiel made up a huge chunk of that spending.

Be warned: our democracy, our rights, and our livelihoods will be on the line as long the super-rich are able to pump huge sums of money into elections.
 
Three reasons electing @ReverendWarnock is vital:

1. With voting rights under attack, we need this civil rights champion in the Senate

2. Dems can overcome 50/50 splits in committees — that's crucial for judicial appointments

3. His victory weakens Manchin and Sinema's power
 
Make no mistake: our democracy remains in peril.

The majority of Republicans in the GOP-controlled House are election deniers.

And Moore v Harper, which is headed to the Supreme Court next month, could let extremist state legislatures pick the next president without you.
 
Anyone else remember when Trump promised to make his tax returns public?

Thanks in no part to him, we'll finally get to see them.
BREAKING:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Supreme Court clears way for handover of Trump tax returns to congressional committee after 3-year legal fight.

We need to either regulate or bust up corporations (like Ticketmaster) that corner markets. But to do so, we must get big money out of politics.

When monopoly power is combined with political clout, the public gets taken for a ride. robertreich.substack.com/p/whos-hurt-wh…

There is no such thing as a “lone wolf” shooter. The horrific acts of violence against marginalized communities are inextricable from the homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, and racism that far-right political leaders stoke every day.
 
Corporations that regard employees only as costs to be cut rather than as assets to be nourished are making a huge mistake.

Exhibit A: Elon Musk.

71% of Americans say large corporations have a negative impact on the country.

Meanwhile a majority of Americans say labor unions have a positive impact.
 
When Elon Musk bought Twitter for $44 billion, he clearly didn’t know that the key assets he was buying lay in Twitter’s 7,500 workers’ heads. Now he’s paying the price. robertreich.substack.com/p/musks-humong…

The Republican Party claims to love freedom. But what about the freedom to live your life without being killed in a mass shooting?
 
Let the latest Ticketmaster fiasco serve as a crucial reminder: We must revive antitrust law and stop the monopolization of America. Now.

Welcome to America, where “pro-life Republicans” spout hateful rhetoric and advance legislation that leads to senseless acts of violence against the LGBTQ community.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

The CEO-to-worker pay gap is now 351-to-1. In 1965, the ratio was 21-to-1. Trickle down economics is nothing more than a cruel hoax designed to enrich bankers and wealthy executives.
 
 
Reminder: Running a company with billions in government contracts and subsidies is Elon Musk's MO.
 
The two largest US oil companies have raked in more than $30 billion in the last three months.

Don't tell me inflation is being driven by government spending or workers asking for better wages.
 
Do I have this right.. the same people spouting “vox populi, vox dei” don’t believe the president should be elected via a popular majority?
 
My heart is broken for Colorado Springs.

LGBTQ+ people are nearly four times more likely than non-LGBTQ+ people to experience violent victimization.

And Anti-LGBTQ+ emboldens extremists to violence.

This must end. Now.

Musk is not exactly Donald Trump.

But both represent the emergence of a particularly American personality in the early decades of the 21st century: the wildly disruptive narcissist.

Memo to Elon, freedom of speech doesn’t mean freedom to incite an insurrection.
 
Ticketmaster has exclusive deals with 80% of large venues in the country, allowing the company to set prices and gouge customers with fees.

Monopolization isn't just bad for the music industry, it's bad for the entire American economy.
