Lean In: A fairy-tale in a fantasy land

Please help rabble.ca stop Harper's election fraud plan. Become a monthly supporter.

After reading Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg, I couldn't stop comparing myself to her. After all, Sheryl Sandberg is almost my age. We were both born in 1969. We grew up in a middle-class family and went to business school.

But perhaps the similarities stop there.

Peoples' Social Forum will build a better Canada

Please help rabble.ca stop Harper's election fraud plan. Become a monthly supporter. 

It can be difficult these days, especially here in Alberta, to fathom that there is light at the end of the proverbial tunnel in regards to our future.

Collective wealth comes from the taxes we all should pay. Tax havens, tax avoidance and regressive tax systems have steadily eroded this collective wealth. This has to stop.

How corruption became a global problem in an age of neoliberalism

Please support our coverage of democratic movements and become a monthly supporter of rabble.ca.

When it comes to corruption, we are so parochial. Gas plants, gas plants, gas plants. (That Twitter parody of Tim Hudak's "Jobsjobsjobs" was the most sophisticated line of the campaign, IMHO.) You'd think from the hysteria that Ontario is uniquely awful. We aren't. Corruption is trending globally.
