Capitalism Myths: Part 2

Capitalism Myths - Part 2: Are corporations more concerned with their bottom line than they are employee safety? Has OSHA improved safety ratings? Did Robber Barons do more harm than good? Does Capitalism create wealth? Improve lives? Increase or reduce job opportunities?

American Optimist

American Optimist: Tired of all the bad news? Is the future really that bleak?

New Both Sides: Are We Running Out of Resources?

New Both Sides—Are We Running Out of Resources? For decades, we have been warned that the planet is running out of oil and other natural resources. Have we underestimated the resources remaining on Earth? Have humans learned to use our resources more efficiently? Are there logical alternatives outside of fossil fuels, such as nuclear energy?
