A Faustian Bargain

A Faustian Bargain

Has the market society taken over our life?  What have we lost?

 

  • The news: If you search the NY Times for news items of importance to you;  You might find 3  items out of 70 pages of “news”.
  • Today, the lack of news on Congress and their continued inability to act on the “people’s” behalf was news.  However, they did find time to vote on their own  Congressional budgetary needs.
  • Americans are paying down their debt which is reducing their spending power , while large corporations are taking on more debt  and taking advantage of the low interest rates.  Good idea for large businesses, whether they need the money or not.
  • Medicare recipients have lost the right to purchase drugs at a bargain.  The powerful drug lobby evidently made a deal with The White House to prevent a decrease in drug prices.

 

Some of the news that’s fit to print and some that isn’t!!!!
