At the Florida Democratic debate HRC's campaign said they were disappointed there was so much time spent discussing immagration, i was said HRC wished to spend more time on the economy. Well I think we should take a look at her plans on economic future of our nation.

Sorry I had to shorten the articles tittle, it was too long for an ATS tittle, here is the actual tittle and sub-tittle of the article.


Hillary’s cronyism is showing: A closer look at her economic proposals reveals a neoliberal agenda

Clinton vows to use public funds and policy to promote private-sector gain. Wall Street couldn't be more delighted






Her silence about NAFTA, however, is deafening. And that’s very good news to corporate and financial elites because NAFTA is the trade deal that has facilitated the financial strip-mining of the American worker. It has placed U.S. workers into direct daily competition with much less expensive labor south of the boarder.

In fact, Hillary argues all such debates are now ancient history. It’s unproductive, she claims, to be “re-fighting battles from 20 years ago….”

But those battles are not over for Michigan workers who feel the incessant pressure from NAFTA on job security and the downward pressure on incomes and benefits. Hillary can’t rebuild the middle-class, even on her own free-market terms, without undoing large parts of NAFTA.

Please read the article; it was hard to follow the ATS rule of three paragraphs max copy paste and do justice to the article.

Thanks for providing this information. Its been difficult for me to parse through the lies to figure out what Hilary will do once she's made POTUS. And its very important to know because in this Oligarchic system, the government picks the economic winners and losers.

The Salon article is somewhat surprising in that I know for a fact that the Wall Street types have been quite concerned that Hilary would attack and try to dismantle the too big to fail banks, yet the Salon piece seems to indicate she's voiced a preference to not single out any one particular industry for destruction.

Its important to keep track of what the next Administration will/won't do. Of course, its no surprise she won't go after NAFTA or TPP............she's a pawn of the Chinese anyway and the agreements are near unbreakable at this point.

Thanks again!

Let's not mince words here. You might call it "Neo Liberal", but I call it Globalist. The only agenda Hillary is pushing is a global agenda. Has nothing to do with being a liberal or a conservative, it is Globalist agenda! The same goes for all the other life time members of the US house and senate!

Ask those in the EU how happy they are being the first of the Western World to be bombarded with the globalist agenda. Bet you money regardless of whether they are left or right, not many of them are happy with it!

TonyS, You're welcome!


This article explains why HRC's economic policies harm the american people:


Asher Edelman, who inspired the Gordon “greed is good” Gekko character in Oliver Stone’s Wall Street films, was asked who he supported for president on CNBC’s Fast Money program.

“Bernie Sanders, no question,” he responded quickly, to the surprise of others on the panel.

Considered one of the Godfathers of Wall Street, Edelman explained that the democratic socialist from Vermont is the straight-forward choice, given his economic platform.

“When you have the top one percent getting money, they spend 5-10 percent of what they earn,” said Edelman. “When you have the lower end of the economy getting money, they spend a 100, or 110 percent of what they earn. As you’ve had a transfer of wealth to the top, and a transfer of income to the top, you have a shrinking consumer base, basically, and you have a shrinking velocity of money.”

“Bernie is the only person out there who I think is talking at all about both fiscal stimulation and banking rules that will get the banks to begin to generate lending again as opposed to speculation,” added Edelman, who made a name for himself in high end investments between the 1960s and ’80s."

I don't know about that. Everything suggests she would be center right just like Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan before her.

Agreed; HRC's policies are definitely a part of the globalist agenda.

Not long ago HRC said the TPP was "the gold standard of trade deals" now she says she does not support it, this takes us back to the all important question #WhichHillary !

She supported NAFTA also!

No worry about americans jobs, just profits for HRC's corporate masters!

I used to call Billy boy a Republican in Democrat clothing.

Now I understand he was just another corporately owned politician, we need politicians that will represent the people.

Do you believe in Globalism though? Just picking your brain, not trying to pick on you? Because I am not willing to give up our countries sovereignty to become a part of this so called NWO. This Globalist agenda that we can eliminate borders and homogenize countries to the point of anarchy due to people being integrated into a society that their religious beliefs cause them to refuse to integrate into the country they are moving to for a so called better life? Isn't working so well in the EU, but yet those who allowed it to happen our taking away from it's own citizens to protect and feed and cloth those who hate them?

I am not picking on the people of the EU, but I see the same thing coming here in the US! The Euro was a mad experiment gone wrong by the same people who are saying "Homogenizing" the EU is a good thing!

Look up Peter Sutherland and what he had to say about it. Pay attention to what George Soros is saying about it! They don't give a damn about the people but they sure do give a damn about seeing these countries destroyed and their heritage and traditions abolished.

Meh, guess I am just getting too old and too damned tired to give a damn any more......although I will keep up being called every name in the book for just trying get people to pay attention....

Fortunately, President Sanders is looking more and more likely every day. A successful run by him will probably inspire several who run for congress.

The idealism of globalization does have its good points, I do not believe in isolation. I do believe we need protections or we will destroy the economy of middle class america.

So I could be considered a protectionist that supports some globalist ideas.

otoh america was pushed to deeply and quickly into globalism with our current trade policies and that has shrunk our middle class and left many in poverty.

Got to go, I owe, I owe, so off to work I go!
