If you want to know what unbridled capitalism can do, ask a Chinese worker who dreams of buying a Buick, whose parents dreamed of buying a refrigerator, and whose grandparents dreamed of not starving to death.
Oh, and ask her if she gives a fig about "inequality".
BC LIKES CITY!
Thank you City Newspaper!
God bless unbridled capitalism, and don't knock it till you've tried it. It has not been tried in the USA for a very long time — much less in New York State.
Economic growth is the only way to improve material well-being, and for the last half-decade it's been virtually non-existent thanks to Prof. Obama's disastrous incompetence and extremist anti-growth ideology.
Meanwhile, politicians pour a TRILLION of your hard-earned dollars every year into welfare programs that accomplish nothing but to perpetuate poverty!
The only solution for these circumstances is for citizens to WISE UP!
Mental illness: smashing the stigma
You could not persuade me to direct a “stigma,” I find it offensive that you do. (See rape/stigma for why.)
It matters that you direct a stigma on your pages. Women ordered us to stop directing it at rape, you continue victimizing another group, the lesson somehow lost.

Another rocky roll-out. At least no one promised "If you like your curriculum you can keep your curriculum..."
If our paid-for politicians would stop sharing all that tax money with their corporate (capitalist) sponsors, we (the people ... the taxpayers) would have plenty of cash to resolve a lot of social problems. NYS is VERY "business-friendly" ... to the businesses who pay (kickbacks ... not taxes) to play anyway.
Such a waste of money and time. This is progress and the Eastman house is showing anything but progressive ideals. Use the money for this lawsuit and paint the front of the Eastman house. It is in dire need of repair.
So glad you spotlighted this restaurant... they have terrific food (sushi, in my opinion is the best in the city), fun drinks and a great ambiance. I never knew about the happy hour special on rolls, so thanks for that information too. :-)
Do you really think we have "unbridled capitalism" in New York State? The highest-taxed and most business-unfriendly state in America? If there is anywhere that socialism should have solved income disparity it's the tax-and-spend, wealth-redistributor and liberal utopia known as New York. So what is the solution to the problem? Should we "bridle" that pesky capitalism and try to get the population comfortable with the notion of "socialism"?
Sorry, passed laws
This study is misleading. It compares the poverty level in the city of Rochester which has 35 square miles to cities which were able to annex their suburbs and include areas that encompass several hundred square miles.
Older cities in the Northeast passes laws years ago preventing them from expanding.
To be a fair comparison you would have to compute the poverty rate for Rochester and include the inner suburbs because most other cities on the list have spread their city limits out to include them.
