The Rolling Stone Manifesto

Rolling Stone Magazine published an economics manifesto that “Millennials should be fighting for.”  You can read it after the jump, but I’ll summarize it for you here.

Author Jesse A. Myerson says that “unemployment blows,” so that the government should guarantee work for everybody.  But then he says that “jobs also blow,” so the government could provide a guaranteed income to everyone so that you don’t have to work.  This would give people “‘time to cultivate new needs for pleasures, activities, senses, passions, affects, and socialities.”

Other things that “blow” are landlords, “hoarders” (by which he means owners of private property), and Wall Street, all of which Myerson has a solution for.
