Re: Black rock socially responsible investing

Social justice investing will draw interest until it sorely lags the S&P 500, which it ultimately will. And then only idiots will invest that way. ::) It's like the restaurant that told customers to pay whatever they wanted, and then went bankrupt in 6 months because they weren't profitable. :o Sur...

Re: A much better political quiz

I am FAR from a Progressive! I cannot stand Bernie!!! Specifically because of all the policies he advocates as Mr. Free. I may have voted for Trump ahead of Bernie! Vinny Capture.JPG Trump is a progressive. He is probably left of Clinton if you go back to Clinton's State of the Union speeches. That...

Re: The New Republican Populism (personal Trump references not allowed)

We also have the abomination that is the "gig economy" where people are lining up to be paid less than min wage after expenses (gas, maintenance, wear and tear, etc). These things are like a rock holding wage growth down. I'm not sure what your problem with Gig working is. You sound like a Cali pol...

Re: The New Republican Populism (personal Trump references not allowed)

Someone said once that money is like manure, it only does any good when you spread it around. The more concentrated wealth becomes the weaker and more precarious capitalism's position becomes. F. Roosevelt was a very wise man in this regard. Had it not been for roosevelt we would have probably had ...

Re: Black rock socially responsible investing

I think it's great. If increased "social responsibility" is directly tied to increase in capital and stock prices, more companies will take it seriously. This is using capitalism itself as a driver for change. Those that don't like it will buy ETF's from a company that doesn't do this. Those that do...

Re: The New Republican Populism (personal Trump references not allowed)

In my not so humble opinion, I think labor unions played a big part of moving and/or losing US industry/jobs to offshore countries/companies. Automobiles, aircraft, electronics, electronics customer service, appliances, chemicals, ship building, lumber, etc. I saw it happening first hand in my comp...

Re: Libertarians of Reddit

I find the left view that the right are fascists ironic (see 'Antifa'). You don't see the right telling anyone what is acceptable to think. That is the hallmark of fascism. I would disagree with that. There are a lot of people on the "right" telling people what is acceptable or not to think, say, a...
