Guest: Travel writer Rick Steves warns that corporate profiteering comes with a price


The Seattle Times has the article Guest: Travel writer Rick Steves warns that corporate profiteering comes with a price.

Maybe there is a crisis in this country — just not the one we keep hearing about. In reality, perhaps it’s a crisis of distribution within the vast and growing American economic pie. Or a crisis between our huge pie and the billions of desperately poor people elsewhere on our planet. What’s our response? A contemporary version of “Let them eat cake.”

Who knew that Rick Steves was far more than “just” a travel writer?  Given the history that he tells in this article, the inevitable outcome of our current situation does not look good for the shortened 1%.
