    Personally, I don't give a damn about Corker. He's not one of my favorites but he is a Republican and votes with the GOP to organize the Senate. His views on the UAW are irrelevant. I just think it's pathetic to use him as an excuse.

    It's not an excuse, it is the truth. If you want to deny the truth that is on you.

    To answer your question: http://people.umass.edu/dmkotz/Glob_and_NL_02.pdf
    There are many research papers on the subject and its world wide effect on economies and people.
    Don't know what I'm "making up" but thanks for the paper on neoliberalism. I look forward to reading it.

    Fine. Blame it on Corker, what do I care? That's not going to help the UAW win any elections in the future.

    Democracy only works well under circumstances where people are properly educated about the facts and not based on them making decisions out of fear and/or smear.

    The rents that unions once were able to capture have been competed away. The measures commonly proposed to restore union power can only do so by restricting competition.

    That is not at all what your article said. You are making that up.
