Hyatt is a $5.5 billion company, owned by one of the 10 richest families in the world. Despite increasing profits, Hyatt continues to cut hours and increase workload for hotel workers. Hotel workers are fighting back.

Economic Democracy

by Allan Engler
(Fernwood Publishing,
2010;
$15.95)

One of the wonderful things about being away from the usual grind for a few months, is that I get to engage in this unusual activity called picking up a book and actually reading it. What a concept! It doesn't happen much in the normal day-to-day life of CAW economist, engaged citizen, and co-parent of two lovelies. But it does happen while I'm on leave (I have a "4-over-5″ deferred salary leave plan, where I work for 80 per cent of my pay but get 20 per cent of my time off. It's wonderful!)

The Soviet Union Versus Socialism by Noam Chomsky

http://www.chomsky.info/articles/1986----.htm

 

I'd like to know some thoughts that people have on this article by famous anarchist/linguist/activist Noam Comsky.

 

"The Soviet leadership thus portrays itself as socialist to protect its right to wield the club, and Western ideologists adopt the same pretense in order to forestall the threat of a more free and just society. This joint attack on socialism has been highly effective in undermining it in the modern period."
