McDonald’s, Coca-Cola scrambling to connect with health-conscious millennials

There may be no more American a meal than a Big Mac washed down by a Coke, but the companies behind the menu are facing some big question marks as they try to stay relevant in an increasingly Chipotle-and-bottled-water world. Once the twin symbols of U.S. corporate ingenuity, innovation and global branding might, McDonald’s Corp....

Will Immigrants Be Key to California—and America’s—Success?

Will Immigrants Be Key to California—and America’s—Success? By Chris Jennewein Last Wednesday afternoon, a booster rocket built in Los Angeles came very close to making the first return landing in history after lofting a resupply mission to the International Space Station. The SpaceX Falcon 9 booster tipped over after landing, but it’s another example of out-of-the-box thinking by entrepreneur Elon Musk, an immigrant from South Africa...

How ‘Liberal Hollywood’ Raised Money For GOP

After the Republicans took over the House of Representatives in 2010, Hollywood bigwigs, often stereotyped as liberals, adapted. In order to build clout with the new Congress to help ensure favorable legislation, the entertainment industry started moving its money to Republicans. The Wall Street Journal chronicled this major shift last year. Now, emails from executives...

What We Talk About When We Talk About Taxes

We have a real communication problem in America, and it goes far beyond hysterical, dishonest news outlets and the general ignorance of the American people. No; this communication breakdown goes to the heart of the federal government—and aristocrats’ pocketbooks. The Left and the Right frequently spar over taxes in this country: how to implement them, how much to demand, what a “fair share” looks like, and whether corporations should...

Top 12 Media Myths On Oil Prices

Top 12 Media Myths On Oil Prices by Dan Doyle The upstream oil and gas industry is not a black hole. There’s no mystery wrapped in an enigma here. There are a lot of meetings with engineers, chemists and geologists. There’s a constantly evolving learning curve. And then there’s all the regulations and compliance. But all-in-all it’s pretty straight forward, that is, until the media gets a hold of it....

Why Cadillac’s $12 Billion Gamble To Get Back Its Mojo Won’t Pay Off

THE NEW CADILLAC CT6 IS BASED ON THE ELMIRAJ CONCEPT CAR It is difficult to say when Cadillac lost its mojo and began to relinquish its crown as America’s leading luxury car to Mercedes and eventually Lexus and other German brands, but I’ll pick 1992 when an ungainly and arguably ugly boat called the Cadillac Deville waddled onto the scene. Since then, it has been pretty much downhill for Cadillac as it lost its...

The Implications of Low Fertility Rates for Developed Nations

Advanced industrialized societies are slowly dying because of low fertility rates. The rates reflect the perceptions of women in these societies of how their lifestyles will be affected by having children. Fertility rates drop temporarily in times of economic hardships, wars or famines, but the current decreases in the industrialized nations have been consistent. At present, essentially no advanced society has women bearing children...

Who Gets Credit?

The Republicans have been howling since Obama was elected that his policies would prevent the economy from improving. They also railed against the Federal Reserve’s strategies, saying they would surely cause considerable inflation and do nothing to help the economy recover. Austerity was needed, the Republicans advised. America needed to cut its budget deficits and pay down the national debt or the economy would remain in the tank or...

Why One Bill of Rights Is No Longer Sufficient

You might not know this, but back in 1962, President John F. Kennedy revealed to Congress and to the nation a four-point plan to safeguard the basic rights of the American consumer; this would become known as the Consumer Bill of Rights. His vision was eventually taken up by the United Nations and expanded into no fewer than eight basic consumer rights, and would later result in something called World Consumer Rights Day. As a matter...

Why we let the Kochs get away with it

Americans who remember democracy and the remnants of “fairness” in our economic system are upwards of mid-seventies now and even they don’t remember actuality. What they’re remembering is the memories that belonged to their parents and grandparents: the time when Americans actually stood up and fought the overbearing wealth of few during the Gilded Age. Those who fought then actually gained some ground against...
