    • add more to your cart for free shipping, Mike... & try and remember your single lil purchase will go thru 10+ hands (shipping) and cost $x.xx in gas/packing etcPonyBoy
    • For many products on Amazon it does not work that way, even if you're a Prime member. These companies find creative ways to get around the free delivery.utopian

    'Heads we win, tails you lose': how America's rich have turned pandemic into profit.

    As 26 million+ Americans lose their jobs, the billionaire class has added $308 Billion to its wealth.

    Never let a good crisis go to waste: as the coronavirus pandemic sweeps the world, America’s 1% have taken profitable advantage of the old saying.

    Some of the richest people in the US have been at the front of the queue as the government has handed out trillions of dollars to prop up an economy it shuttered amid the coronavirus pandemic. At the same time, the billionaire class has added $308bn to its wealth in four weeks - even as a record 26 million people lost their jobs.

    • Takedown the socialist gov!deathboy
    • Of course doing that requires quite a bigger loss of real free markets... Can u stomach the fake growth through money policydeathboy

    • Now go drink some bleach.i_monk
    • haha hey you said crony capitalism. Does that share more similarities with free market capitalism or trend more towards socialismdeathboy
    • id say socialism. and if you don't like that word facsim,communism,soc... all the same. we can say collectivism.deathboy
    • were the few decide for the majority by rule. how to distribute capital for the greater good. in this case and historically all cases will benefit the rich.deathboy

    • help. so yes call it crony capitalism if it makes you feel better but just a twin sister of socialism or any other collectivism and totally opposite of capitalideathboy

    • As most collectivism philosophy it usually denies defining the public. For sure corp shareholders are public. more so considering gov pensions. and as much isdeathboy
    • distributing wealth. what public did you wish your collectivism would work for and how? run for office with a plan. Every cunt does itdeathboy

    The Origin Of 'The World's Dumbest Idea': Milton Friedman

    No popular idea ever has a single origin. But the idea that the sole purpose of a firm is to make money for its shareholders got going in a major way with an article by Milton Friedman in the New York Times on September 13, 1970.

    Wealthiest Americans raking in billions from coronavirus pandemic

    As 30 million Americans have lost their jobs over the last six weeks amid the coronavirus pandemic, America’s billionaires are becoming even richer.

    According to a new report from the Institute for Policy Studies, a left-leaning think tank, over the past 6 weeks, American billionaires have seen their wealth increase by $406 billion — a boost of just under 14% to their net worth.
