It takes real skill to inherit that much money and go bankrupt 6 times.
A must read. Our dialogue on poverty needs to change.
[Here is the blueprint. First, valorize work as the ticket out of poverty, and debase caregiving as not work. Look at a single mother without a formal job, and say she is not working; spot one working part time and demand she work more. Transform love into laziness. Next, force the poor to log more hours in a labor market that treats them as expendables. Rest assured that you can pay them little and deny them sick time and health insurance because the American taxpayer will step in, subsidizing programs like the earned-income tax credit and food stamps on which your work force will rely. Watch welfare spending increase while the poverty rate stagnates because, well, you are hoarding profits. When that happens, skirt responsibility by blaming the safety net itself. From there, politicians will invent new ways of denying families relief, like slapping unrealistic work requirements on aid for the poor.]
U.S. unemployment is down and jobs are going unfilled. But America’s tremendous economic growth has not led to broad social uplift. Instead, workers are being shut out of the profits they are helping to generate.

Nike is well ahead of its competitors when it comes to political contributions on both sides of the aisle.
