Someone is Rigging Economy. Even the Right Says So.

According to a new Pew survey, 62 percent of Americans think that the economic system unfairly favors the powerful, and 78 percent think that too much power is concentrated in too few companies. The discontent isn’t limited to liberals; 69 percent of young conservative-leaning voters and 48 percent of the most conservative voters agree that the system favors the powerful.
Business conservatives hold vastly different views of the American economic system than most Americans. Two-thirds of business conservatives think the economic system is fair to most people, and 57 percent think that large companies do not have too much power.
Business conservatives’ confidence in the economic system might differ from everyone else, but business conservatives are politically active enough to make a big impression on politicians.
Ed. Notes: Now Americans must consense on the solution: Shift from letting politicians spend our public dollars to paying citizens a dividend and shift from taxing our efforts to recovering the common wealth — the worth of Earth. Even small steps in this geonomic direction have made a big difference, whenever and wherever tried. If only geonomics had its own Senator Warren!
