"A Classic State Capitalist": How Donald Trump Profited From Public Subsidies and Political Favors 30.6.2016 Truthout.com
"It's not been easy for me. It has not been easy for me. I started off in Brooklyn. My father gave me a small loan of a million dollars." Those were the words of presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump during a town hall event last year in New Hampshire. Today we look back at Trump's rise to power and how he profited from his father's deep pocketbook and political connections. Decades before Donald Trump became a household name, his father Fred Trump emerged as one of New York's most prolific real estate developers, building more than 27,000 homes in Brooklyn and Queens. In 1927, Fred Trump made the news when he was arrested at a Ku Klux Klan riot in Queens. We speak to Wayne Barrett, considered the preeminent journalist on Donald Trump. As a reporter at The Village Voice, Barrett began reporting on Donald Trump in the late 1970s. Barrett's 1991 biography of Trump was just republished as an ebook with the title of Trump: The Greatest Show on Earth: The Deals, the Downfall, the ...

To reject the imperative of re-localizing our economies requires a great deal of denial and/or hubris, twin cultural delusions that are at the root of our existential predicament.

Workers unload farmed cotton in the Andhra Pradesh state of India. (Photo: Jankie ) During a panel discussion this May on Community Choice Energy , a rapidly growing initiative in California and six other states that enables communities to seize control of local electricity services, I argued for the economic benefits of building out local, decentralized renewable energy assets such as rooftop and community solar arrays. I was followed by a panelist who chided my "misguided" belief in the virtue of locally-generated, clean energy. "Who cares whether our electricity is locally generated?" he quipped. "I've never heard of anyone demanding local pants, and local ...
