PrBen and Jerrys ice creamobably go no where but I went out immediately after hearing about the Israeli government wanting to file an international suit against Ben & Jerry's parent (a private firm) for not renewing their contract to continue to sell to Israel and bought some Ben & Jerry's!  How about international law taking a much more serious look at the more recent actions of the Israeli government?

The answer to the question with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic is, "not a damn thing!" Nothing has changed publicly in regards to the virus, any current treatment, immunization or proven new treatment or medication. So why is the world (and in particular the United States) beginning to open it's businesses for business as usual?  Well again, that's easy, it's money and the acquisition of it.  Instead of finding ways to sustain the masses without subjecting the populous to the spread and horrors of a disease that has yet to be contained we will put those, the most vulnerable at risk so the few, the least vulnerable can acquire and build their already obscene fortunes even more!

Nothing has changed yet folks! But let's not act responsibly nor even civilized. Let's be utter greedy bas****s, which brings up and whole slew of issues about our society, cultures, religions and you name it!

You don't even have to scratch the surface of the current political regime in Hungary to see that what is happening there is another chapter in the ugly history of modern Europe!  We can not allow this kind of fascism to be normalized or accepted. The EU must continue to take resonable yet the strongest of actions against its member that has taken a bad turn and is seemingly repeating an ugly history.

The new book, Capital in the Twenty First Centuryby Thomas Piketty is being talked about in economic cirles as a must read.  I haven't read it as of yet, but will soon. 


Regarding inequality, let's see what other economists are saying about it..
