Franchising: a processed cheesy example of greater trends.

One Response to Franchising: Chris Hedges, Ralph Nader, Michael Moore & Daniel Berrigan?

  1. Carol Cross says:

    Yes! These men are heroes of mine who tell hard truths to the American people who don’t listen — or even tune in. We are, as Ralph Nader says, no longer a serious nation.
    We allow our government to conspire with the corporations to maximize their profits by sending our jobs out of the country where cheap labor and lax environmental laws are in place.
    Big American money joins with big money in other nations to maximize the profits of big money and the interests of the people in the sovereign republics are sold out to the global corporate interests.
    We allow our government to lie to us —as in the lie of franchise regulation that exploits the cheap labor and cheap “venture” capital of Mom and Pops who buy franchises as a safe way to earn income and maybe even profits. But, the government has cooperated with the franchisors and the other special interests to hide the risk of a purchase of a franchised business from the buyers. The lie and the flawed regulation taints are courts.
    My beloved country is in decline!
