5. I see a lot of generalities, no details...

 

"Cut red tape"
"Expand access to capital"
"Boost public investment"

No details.

8. There are links to more details and white papers throughout.

You'll also see "Issues" categories including Manufacturing, Labor, Workforce, Small Business, etc. etc.

10. I love the 15% profit sharing for employees. As profits rise so will income for employees and not

 

be based on wages alone. This is a great plan!! She ought to put it more out in front. It does not cost companies a thing to initiate. The employees become stock holders and wealth is spread around.

2. Nothing about making changes to our trade policies.

Nothing about protecting American workers with our trade policies. Nothing about TTP , although she is right now publicly against it.

You can't make substantial gains in income inequality without making big changes in our trade policies.

We continue to run huge trade deficits , especially with China.

3. The biggest one she's pushed has been a provision to make it more attractive for companies

to give equity to their employees. Great idea, and for that matter the only technically "socialist" part of anybody's platform...

6. Another "feel good" proposal with no teeth...

 

The only way you can get companies to give equity away is to ensure that the execs are able to enrich themselves tenfold in the process.

Just like the 401Ks were touted as a way for the average worker to manage their retirement funds and were actually most beneficial to top executives while freeing companies of any pension obligations--
High income employees receive the majority of the tax benefits of 401(k)s, according to a new Government Accountability Office report. The analysis found that 401(k) tax benefits accrue primarily to highly paid employees and do relatively little to help lower income workers save for retirement.

Only about half of the private sector workforce has access to any type of retirement benefits at work, with low income workers being the least likely to be offered the opportunity to participate.

Result, most peons ended up with very little for their "golden years."
