Is Mayor Bloomberg A “Champion Of The Poor?” : Gothamist

Somewhere along the line, the goal of business shifted from “making a living” and providing services in return for sufficient profits… to achieving sheer hegemony for the notion of capitalism. It wasn’t even enough when the Cold War was decided in favor of the capitalist system… in fact that was when the real war on the middle class began.

Bloomberg so completely buys into the hegemonic story, the quest for dominance blind to its human impact… that he isn’t even aware of his role. Advocate of the poor? Only in a sense so relativistic that it’s a fantasy. Is Mayor Bloomberg A "Champion Of The Poor?" : Gothamist.
