TOXIC PHILANTHROPY: Wealthy U.S. donors are influencing policy to serve their own interests

TOXIC PHILANTHROPY: Wealthy U.S. donors are influencing policy to serve their own interests July 26 – Americans gave away almost $400 billion in 2016. Billionaires like Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and Mark Zuckerberg are applauded for their generosity. But who actually benefits from their donations? For every dollar of charitable giving, the U.S. taxpayer has to fork out 50 cents in lost tax revenue. And uber-wealthy philanthropists ensure that their dollars are well-spent; they drive government policy to suit their interests and money meant for developing economies often lands up in the coffers of U.S. and European organizations and corporations, creating ever more dependent recipients. “STIMULUS with Tara Cleary” looks at the harmful side of philanthropy.

MONOPOLIZING AMERICA

MONOPOLIZING AMERICA November 28 –Colossal corporate monopolies are killing capitalist competition and wiping out consumer freedom. Media company, Meredith Corporation, has just bought Time Inc., which publishes Time, Sports Illustrated and People magazines. A separate takeover battle involves two of the world’s largest semiconductor manufacturers – Broadcom is attempting a hostile takeover of Qualcomm, a fellow electronic chip maker, for $103 billion, which would make it the biggest tech deal ever. AT&T is in an $85.4 billion acquisition bid for Time Warner, the owner of CNN, HBO and Warner Bros. If approved by the Department of Justice, together, the two companies would create a giant internet, news and entertainment conglomerate. Huge mergers and acquisitions like this one may seem far-removed from your everyday life, but they are chipping away at America’s competitive free market and eradicating consumer choices. And one of the most exciting small brewery scenes in the world...
