Meet the One Percent: “Giants: The Global Power Elite” by Peter Phillips
“‘Giants: The Global Power Elite” has a specific focus, which the author took the time to explain at the beginning of his presentation at Fordham. This is not a book about the wealthiest people in the world, nor about the most corrupt capitalists in the world. It’s about the small subset of both these groups that actually wields power by crafting policies, building alliances and gathering funds that governments adopt and carry out. This book describes the organizations that actually do the work of translating pro-wealth agendas into possible governmental decisions, and then provide the funding structures to ease the acceptance of these agendas. “Giants” aims to reveal where the rubber meets the road in global policy, from money managers like Black Rock and Vanguard Group to secretive facilitator organizations like the Group of 30 and the Bilderberg Group to, of course, military cheerleaders like the Atlantic Council, which acts as an unofficial policy-making and consensus-building arm for NATO....”

US going to run 4-5% budget deficit + debt accumulation + 1% tax cuts AND hourly earnings have not risen June 2017-June 2018! https://twitter.com/MkBlyth/status/1018079719319891968 - From June 2017 to June 2018, real average hourly earnings decreased 0.2 percent, seasonally adjusted.

Republicans got their prize. Now comes the backlash. - The Washington Post
ecause of partisan gerrymandering and other factors, Democrats could win by eight percentage points and still not gain control of the House, one study found. And the two-senators-per-state system (which awards people in Republican Wyoming 70 times more voting power than people in Democratic California) gives a big advantage to rural, Republican states.
