Anna Morkeski sounds good but in terms of right to work, it has to be factored in that while no union dues are charged to its beneficiaries, the Maine gov is currently writing statutes that mandate employee pay and benefits for its targeted sector (companies providing above average income) as a bargaining chip in exchange for giving owners of the means of production up to 100% tax exemption on corporate and personal income tax and a tax credit of up to 80 % payroll taxes - the largest payroll taxes in the state which the Maine Gov passes the lion's share on to the general tax payer via the Pine Tree Zone tax incentives program. This means that while beneficiaries of the state's negotiations do not pay union dues in effect the general Maine tax payer covers the union dues regardless of whether or not the taxpayer is the beneficiary, while the corporation of Maine ends up with an high end employee income tax revenue which can be taxed at a higher rate than the middle class and lower jobs that the Maine economic development policies exclude from their targeted sector benefits.

So if one really advocates for making Maine a right to work state, one should also advocate for a REPEAL of the PINE TREE ZONE TAX BENEFITS which benefit the few (maybe) at the expense of the many. I say it maybe benefits the few because of Maine State Inc's over use of tax credits and tax exemptions to gift to owners of means of production and capitalists. This will continue to drive up taxes on the general public and eventually Maine will be like Denmark where wages are high but taxes are higher- on average taxes in Denmark are at 80% according to Mikkel Clair Nissen

So all we can really say for certain is that Pine Tree Zone tax incentives benefit the expanding power and might of the corporation of Maine and its hegemonic power over the free enterprise system in this state.

Response from Anna Morkeski:


Anna Morkeski I am all for ending corporatism in Maine. Sorry the article didn't cover everything. I didn't write it. Please feel free to talk to me directly about issues you would like to see addressed. Also saw you liked 'The Committee to Rebuild Maine's Middle Class". Do check out where they get their money and how they spent it.http://www.maine.gov/.../dis.../2014/ie_general-2014_NEW.htm

An Incomplete Theory of Inflation Made to Order for Mass Consumption.

M oney is not what it used to be, so must our ways of thinking about it adapt. jaakko-kemppainen-unsplash The message treads across the media terrain, beating louder and louder as if to drown out the beat of the distant drummer. W arning! The only thing the stimulus will stimulate is inflation. The people will pay as the wealthy elite invests their windfalls in financial assets. Doom and gloom set to march across the land to the beat of the distribution of stimulus funds. In recent years as past predictions of fiscal disaster following stimulus spending failed to materialize and so the thinking about national debt and deficits has evolved, most noticeably with the development of  Modern Monetary Theory . In the   fall of 2020,  National Affairs  published a story,  Does the Debt Matter ? by Peter Wehner & Ian Tufts. Peter Wehner is vice president and senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and served in the last three Republican administrations. Ian Tufts is a recent g

JECD Group Holds Master Plan Pow Wow for Boothbay Peninsula

The most honest statement to come out of the ringleaders of the Joint Economic Community Development Group in their first workshop program was "none of us are experts on economic development", which in my most humble opinion is evident in the fact that the JECD begins with the premise that economic development can be master minded by central management. The article in the Boothbay Register begins with this paragraph: The Joint Economic Development Committee master plan workshop on Thursday, Oct. 12 discuss findings from stakeholder interviews conducted early last month. The interviews centered around building an overall economic development strategy for Edgecomb, Boothbay, Boothbay Harbor and Southport. Who are the stakeholders?  A search for articles in the Boothbay Register comes up short. Why is the public not told who the stakeholders are. Since the taxpayers of Boothbay and Boothbay Harbor footed the bill for the JECD's consultants, why are they not the stakeh

Why are social impact investors trying so hard to defeat smaller shelters for the homeless?

  "Social Impact” developers in Portland, Maine seek to squelch a referendum for smaller shelters called for by qualified practitioners with concrete experience in the field. A large sign says Vote C to support the Homeless, small handmade sign next to it says Untrue! That sign is paid for by developers who want / Photo by Jess Falero In   the 1970s under Governor Longley , Maine became a centrally managed economy that expanded Maine’s wealth gap and merged, almost seamlessly, the public and private and the non-profit and for-profit economic sectors into one mutually beneficial wealth-concentration & distribution system. Currently, mutually benefitting factions are coming together once again in hopes of building a mega-shelter for the homeless in a Portland, Maine industrial development district. In addition to beds for the homeless, the project will include, dining, and locker facilities, as well as offices and an attached health clinic. The promotion  describes the facility
