text Trumponomics: Failure Pre-Programmed by Rudolf Hickel
Macro-economic and ecological connections are simply ignored with the concentration on short-term profit. The planned reduction of corporate taxes from the current 35% to 15 or 20% recalls the Laffer curve as the basis of Reagan's fiscal policy error. Between 2009 and 2015, the top US corporations stashed $1.6 trillion in tax havens. The social state and the energy turn are not funded but subverted. Oxfam explains how the Trump reform will worsen life....

text Poverty Returns with Misguided Policy by Franz Segbers
The state should represent the public interest and yet private or special interests are in the driver's seat. Trump's proposed 2018 budget is a sledgehammer with cuts to Meals-on-Wheels, school lunches, WIC food assistance, National Institute for Health, EPA, PBS, Legal Services Corp and more.
