I am not Nancy, Chuck, Hillary, Bill, Barack, or Bernie

đŸ‘†One of these doesn't belong on that list.

Medicare for All has been shown to save tens of thousands of lives, and billions of dollars every year. In multiple studies.

In the most recent poll (https://www.newsweek.com/87-democrats-support-medicare-all-though-joe-biden-doesnt-1522833), 89% of Democrats support Medicare for All. 67% of all polled registered voters support Medicare for All. Even 43% of Republicans support it. Do you?

On your website I see "Access to healthcare". We already have access to healthcare. I also have access to a Lamborghini, there is nothing legally stopping me from going to the dealership and buying one.

From Harvard Business Review: https://hbr.org/2018/08/why-the-u-s-needs-more-worker-owned-companies

How familiar are you with worker co-ops, and will you perhaps advocate for them as the research is clear?

Speaking of the research being clear, I hope this is also on your radar: https://hbr.org/2015/08/the-research-is-clear-long-hours-backfire-for-people-and-for-companies

Lastly: with all your success, opportunities and connections, any plans on getting involved in the fight against climate change? How good is a shiny new career in a burning planet?

Your last sentence in this post has the correct order. ;)

First, congrats on the book & your success so far, nobody can take that away from you.

How many people are out there in the world, who are just as smart and hard-working as you, but will never have the opportunities you had? I'm always a little baffled by this kind of attitude. Again, meaning genuinely no offense. It's human nature.

I noticed you mentioned earlier that "capitalism seems to have race-to-the-bottom tendencies. No kidding. That's the whole idea.

There's another immigrants' child who went to Harvard decades ago, then Stanford, then Yale, with a PhD in Economics and History. His name is Richard Wolff, and I cannot recommend him enough.

Direct quote of what you wrote:

"Medicare for All is soley [sic] branding (marketing)."

Wrong. It is a specific, single-payer universal healthcare plan. There is a specific bill in the Senate, and one in the House.

Are you not aware of this fact, or are you lying to people? No other option here.

Research shows worker-owned companies are just better at most everything a business should be doing : https://hbr.org/2018/08/why-the-u-s-needs-more-worker-owned-companies

That’s true democracy at the workplace.

Any plans on fully transitioning to that? If no, why not?
