In the aftermath of the 2010 Citizens United decision, it's become commonplace to note the growing political dominance of a small segment of the economic elite. But what exactly are those members of the elite doing with their newfound influence? The One Percent Solution provides an answer to this question for the first time. Gordon Lafer's book is a comprehensive account of legislation promoted by the nation's biggest corporate lobbies across all fifty state legislatures and encompassing a wide range of labor and economic policies.In an era of growing economic insecurity, it turns out that one of the main reasons life is becoming harder for American workers is a relentless—and concerted—offensive by the country’s best-funded and most powerful political forces: corporate lobbies empowered by the Supreme Court to influence legislative outcomes with an endless supply of cash. These actors have successfully championed hundreds of new laws that lower wages, eliminate paid sick leave, undo the right to sue over job discrimination, and cut essential public services.Lafer shows how corporate strategies have been shaped by twenty-first-century conditions—including globalization, economic decline, and the populism reflected in both the Trump and Sanders campaigns of 2016. Perhaps most important, Lafer shows that the corporate legislative agenda has come to endanger the scope of democracy itself. For anyone who wants to know what to expect from corporate-backed Republican leadership in Washington, D.C., there is no better guide than this record of what the same set of actors has been doing in the state legislatures under its control.
My modest proposal for them to possibly save-evolve their capitalism:
No corporate, or private, or personal money will be used in elections.
Every Person elected to office: president, national-state-local politicians, judicial
Every Person appointed to decision making: local-state-national government, judicial
Every Person serving the public: police, fire, medical, administrators, teachers, services
These Good People:
Must - live where they serve-work.
Must - live in their most underserved neighborhood.
Must - use their local public school.
Must - use local medical services.
Must - walk the streets - use public transportation.

Midland school, 15 years old, we had an English teacher, feared, respected
named Sniffer by boys.
Vic Bryant did not sniff back snot or tears
He sniffed our complete lack of sophistications

I did make him cry.

Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.
