The pandemic wil exacerbate inequality in America - Lawyers, Guns & Money - Meanwhile, the position of congressional Republicans is that workers have too much leverage right now.
Its clearer than ever that covid-19 will increase, not decrease, inequality ... The Paycheck Protection Program, sold as a way to help mom-and-pop stores and local business, turned into another way to make sure those with the least need benefited. Black-owned firms found it hard to tap into the money, but private equity shops found no such barriers. Nor did the banks that administered the loans, to the tune of $18 billion, money coming straight out of the pockets of small businesses. The bigger, more capitalized companies will survive and become even more dominant.

The Military Demographic Conundrum - Lawyers, Guns & Money - AOC is proposing the wrong solution to the wrong problem, and it's because of a pervasive misunderstanding of the demographic foundations of the US military ... Unfortunately, AOC gets the problem entirely wrong, and the solution shs offering will actually make the situation worse. The US military does not recruit primarily from the poor, and indeed the poor are excluded in systematic ways from military service and all the perks that service entails ... The United States military does not recruit disproportionately from low income Americans. The middle three income quintiles in the US are over-represented among enlisted personnel, with the top and the bottom slightly under-represented ... It recruits disproportionately from families that already include members of the military, from rural areas around the country, and from the suburban and exurban South ... Modern military service requires physical and technological skill sets that the US health care and educational systems (not to mention the legal system) have very often prevented low-income individuals from attaining.

How did a completely open grifter get elected president of the United States? - Lawyers, Guns & Money - This, I suspect, is the single most crucial question that historians will grapple with when they try to interpret the Trump era in American politics ...
