Britain’s zombie government
Paul Mason

So you don’t see the tax havens as the result of people feeling unrepresented by the governments seeking the taxes? You don’t see the tax havens as coming from a time when many governments were at their largest, their budgets arcane, and people feeling like it was all a racket?

In the US, our government has had the largest budget of any government, and yet fails miserably to achieve… anything. Why should we be doubling down on that trend?

The 1960’s and 1970’s were a time of the greatest engagement in unionization, the greatest engagement of tariffs for economic controls, and resulted in the US on a path to look very similar to Soviet Russia (which collapsed in the late 1980s and early 1990's). Fitting you use Trotsky as a reference.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
