3 Dangerous Economic Myths

“We’ve accepted three dangerous mythologies that prevent us from seeing what’s really happening, and pose false choices.” — Robert Reich

3 FALSE Economic Concepts

According to former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich, these are the three most dangerous economic myths:

  • False: The rich are job creators (True: consumers create demand for jobs)
  • False: The critical choice is between the free market or government (True: Government creates and enforces the free market)
  • False: We should worry about the size of government (True: We should worry about who government is for)

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
