Convention discussion: Ponzi scheme capitalism

BY:James H. Slacum| March 16, 2019

 Question of the week: 
How have changes in capitalist production shifted the composition and organization of the 
workforce, and the working class as a whole? What have trends like automation, 
uberization, and online collaboration meant for the participation and status of women in the 
workforce? Of youth?


The war against the unions has decimated the middle class. Good paying jobs allowed the workers to enjoy the promise of the American dream. Disposable income allowed the Ponzi scheme of Capitalism to limp along. Those gains by workers are siphoned off by shareholders and the same story as before. The rich get richer and the workers continue to struggle!!!!
