here's a short extract:
So for many of us, defining ourselves as #ecosocialists is a way of distinguishing our socialism from such environmental blindness.

Even more important, by calling ourselves ecosocialists we are saying that we don’t view the #environment as just one of many equally important concerns, just another stick t

Of Flying Cars and the Declining Rate of #Profit

The American victory in the #space race meant that, after 1968, U.S. planners no longer took the #competition seriously. As a result, the mythology of the final frontier was maintained, even as the direction of #research and #development shifted away from anything that might lead to the creation of Mars bases and robot factories.

How #Uber Got #Lost


Source: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/23/business/how-uber-got-lost.html
In combing through documents, interviewing opponents and talking to more than 200 current and former employees while researching my book, what came up again and again was this sense of a public-private divide — that Mr. Kalanick had built a start-up that thrived on venture #investment, #blitzkrieg #expansion tactics and an ethically questionable aggressive streak, but that the playbook made little sense for a publicly traded entity.
...
Instead of moving the hubs, the local Uber managers decided to pay off the #cops, with bribes of around 500,000 rupiah (about $30).
...
The fixes didn’t come soon enough. Mr. #Kalanick’s product team eventually improved identity verification and #security in the app for Brazilian customers, after intense pressure from product and marketing leaders. But not before at least 16 drivers in #Brazil were murdered.

The #Invention of #Money

When the Venetian merchant Marco Polo got to #China, in the latter part of the thirteenth century, he saw many wonders—gunpowder and coal and eyeglasses and porcelain. One of the things that astonished him most, however, was a new invention, implemented by Kublai Khan, a grandson of the great conqueror Genghis. It was paper money, introduced by Kublai in 1260.

QUOTE :
In footage reportedly shot in London last summer during a dinner with far-right European nationalists, Mr Bannon said Breitbart was in “tough financial shape” after seeing advertising revenues plummet "90 per cent".

He credited the slump to work done by campaign group Sleeping Giants, which pressures companies into cutting ties with media it deems to be racist or sexist.

On Trump's current nominee for the Fed, Stephen Moore


On December 22nd Mr Moore said he thought the members of the Federal Reserve Board should be “thrown out for economic malpractice.” On March 13th he co-authored an opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal accusing the Fed of acting as an obstacle to American growth.

They're talking about this particular piece.

During the Obama administration he railed at the Fed for keeping interest rates too low, and also urged it to shrink the size of its balance sheet. But then he became an advisor to the Drumpf administration’s election campaign (he recently published a book entitled, “Trumponomics” with Arthur Laffer, an economist). And suddenly he turned from monetary policy hawk to dove. It appears his instincts are informed less by sound principles of economic policy than by whatever he thinks most likely to please Mr Drumpf.
