Bust a Union…Crash a Global Economy
Updated On: Nov 14, 2012

Nov. 14, 2012 | …What on earth does union busting have to do with crashing an entire global economy? Let's take the USA first.

But our financial system came to the rescue with that magic plastic we called credit cards and that magic paper we call loan contracts…Debt went through the roof…Debt has become the new slavery. Chains of iron are replaced by chains of plastic and paper…Now you tell me.
