Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There is a growing inequity in pay in the United States. From 1976 to 2006, the average salary of workers in the bottom 90 percent of the income distribution - nearly everybody - rose by only 2.3 percent, to $38,800, tax data show. Among the top 10 percent, average salaries rose 57 percent, to $195,000.

How fantastic only 10-15 % of Germans risk falling into poverty, compared to 90 % of Americans...

Seriously, those numbers are so beyond insane, so fantastically perverse that we must trumpet them from every hill and every rooftop every day to create change.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
