Definition of intellectual resources
Except for the true believers, there doesn’t seem to be anyone who doesn’t agree with the idea that Mitt Romney and his campaign have terribly bungled their response to the attacks centered on his time at Bain Capital, due in no small part that they are telling a story that doesn’t seem to make sense. Because of this, the media continues to talk about the issue while the Obama campaign continues to hammer away on the outsourcing meme and the fact that Romney is refusing to release any more income tax information. All of this leads Charlie Cook to suggest that Romney is in danger of having himself defined by the Obama campaign in a negative manner that he may not be able to get away from:
The strategic decision by the Romney campaign not to define him personally—not to inoculate him from inevitable attacks—seems a perverse one. Given his campaign’s ample financial resources, the decision not to run biographical or testimonial ads, in effect to do nothing to establish him as a three-dimensional person, has left him open to the inevitable attacks for his work at Bain Capital, on outsourcing, and on his investments. It’s all rather inexplicable. Aside from a single spot aired in the spring by the pro-Romney super PAC Restore Our Future, not one personal positive ad has been aired on Romney’s behalf. The view that any day or dollar spent on talking about anything other than the economy is a waste has been taken to such an extreme that Romney has no positive definition other than that of being a rich, successful, and presumably smart businessman. People see and feel the reasons for firing Obama every day in the economic statistics and the struggle that so many Americans face daily. The Romney campaign seems focused on reinforcing a message that hardly needs reinforcing, while ignoring a clear and immediate danger to its own candidate’s electability.

Socialism As It Was Always Meant To Be
by Michael Albert & Robin Hahnel
As the twentieth century draws to a close, what have we learned about how we should manage our economic affairs? What should we do if we had the opportunity to start again?
We could hold a lottery, or perhaps have a brawl to decide who owns what productive resources. The unfortunate losers would have to hir...ally because the collapse of communism is incapable of reducing the liabilities of market systems that are becoming more rather than less apparent. Unnecessarily because socialism as it was always meant to be is not impossible. And unnecessarily because the vision of an equitable, democratic economy, generating increasing solidarity among its participants, is as attractive and appealing as ever.
