Cellar Door Skeptics 136: Amazon is NOT a Public God
Cellar Door Skeptics is back this week looking to tackle whether or not Amazon should take over public libraries. A since retracted article from Forbes, stated that Amazon is so efficient maybe public libraries are no longer necessary. The duo takes on this claim and talk about how capitalism always thinks it is better than any social program.
They also reflect on how inflation has created an offset for any tax reform we have seen over the last couple years. All the gains that lower and middle income families and individuals have seen have slowly been drown out by the inflation of goods we purchase.
Lastly the team talk about the new show Who is America. They review a few of the segments on the show, highlight some of the people who decide they will show their true colors, and laugh as the host outs many of the people in public office.
