James Corbett: The Dark History of the Minimum Wage (video)

This is one of those videos from Corbett that i almost skipped because i didn’t think it would be all that interesting to me. Wrong. See it for yourself…

The Dark History of the Minimum Wage

There’s something strange about the idea of a minimum wage. It’s one of those subjects that everyone has a strong opinion about, even if they have no idea what makes actual economic sense. But perhaps the most surprising thing of all is that the minimum wage has a dirty secret that most economists don’t want you to know about. Today we explore The Dark History of the Minimum Wage.

Monsanto/Bayer Roundup being banned world-wide (video)

I’ve worked with glyphosate in the past and though i hated having to use it, it does indeed work very well. Unfortunately i was unable to find an alternative way of killing weeds along a fence line. I’ve seen news of many studies linking glyphosate to health problems, as well as news of it being banned in various places. I’m happy to see Brasscheck report on the issue.

Roundup – which contains the deadly biocide glyphosate implicated in many serious health problems – is being banned by countries and cities all over the world.

Even in the US!

It’s headline news, right?

No it isn’t.
