Elizabeth Warren has told us that she is a capitalist to her bones. Here is her biggest test. Will she act like a true capitalist and sell her endorsement for President to the highest bidder? She has also told us that she believes in markets. Will she use her market power in this situation to extract the highest price she can?
This would be a perfect demonstration, sort of a textbook example, of what it means to be a capitalist with near monopoly power. There couldn’t be a better example of what the 99% are up against in this class war.
The pièce de résistance to her little scheme would be to announce her decisions on the Sunday morning talk shows on March 15.
I woke up early this morning with the driving desire to write this piece before someone like Jimmy Dore does a comedy routine with these ideas. I tried this idea out on a sample audience. Perhaps this reference to the ides of March is a bit too cerebral.
Writing this post reminds me of my Bridge playing days, when the winner of the auction would play a trump card, and as the second player, I would decide to play my ace, and think what could possibly go wrong. Well, here goes the ace. Maybe that is too cerebral, also.
