There is no such thing as corporate welfare.

A slight correction
In most not all cases the money spent on sports teams could be described as corporate welfare.

Of course it's corporate welfare when you take land and give it to a corporation, or pay them cash from taxes - as a giveaway, not as buying something. Or paying a corporation for their payroll.

Something for nothing. No different than giving a welfare check to a person.

Report: America's income inequality is on par with Russia's

Quote:
The lopsided fortunes of America's richest and poorest citizens are now on par with Russia's after three decades of rising income inequality, according to a new report from economists Thomas Piketty and Emmanuel Saez.

The U.S.'s widening gap between the rich and poor is partly due to less progressive taxation, the World Inequality Report 2018 said, a finding that may spark additional debate about the current Republican tax reform effort, which critics say will reward the wealthy and corporations far more than the middle class or lower-income households.

The share of American national income controlled by the country's top 10 percent of earners stood at 47 percent in the U.S. and Canada last year, compared with 46 percent for Russia. Europe's share of income held by its top 10 percent of earners stood at 37 percent, by comparison.

Yet in 1980, the United States and Western Europe had similar levels of inequality, the researchers found. At that time, the top 1 percent held about 10 percent of income. Fast forward to 2016, when the balance had shifted considerably, with the top 1 percent in Europe holding a 12 percent income share, compared with 20 percent in the U.S...........

Morning in America arrived. At least for some. The majority? Not so much.

Kaffer: City's rules should apply to Ilitch parking lots, too

Quote:
...........The arena's not bad for the city, but it's a mixed blessing, an expensive proposition, one that requires careful oversight to ensure that it pays off for Detroit and Detroiters.

Anyone who builds a parking lot in the hockey arena's vicinity is required to add landscaping around the lot's perimeter, but also to add interior landscaping. It's not just a cosmetic addition; green space breaks up a paved expanse and absorbs storm water, lessening the burden on the city's storm sewer system. It costs the city about $100 million a year to treat storm-water runoff.

For 18 surface parking lots the Ilitches plan to build or renovate near the arena, the city granted variances that exempt the family's parking companies from installing interior landscaping.

The head of Detroit's buildings department told Free Press reporter Joe Guillen that for the Ilitches, the exterior landscaping, plantings around the edges of those surface lots, counted as both interior and exterior landscaping, something he acknowledged isn't an industry best practice. Had the Ilitches' parking companies been required to follow city code, the companies would have planted 50,000 square feet of landscaping inside those 18 lots — something that would have taken time, cost more money, and reduced the number of spots inside the surface lots by roughly 269 spaces. Because the lots have more spots, Ilitch parking companies stand to collect an additional estimated $1 million each year in parking fees. .............

I wonder if that's the same Ilitche family who were well known grifters and carnies around a 100 years ago in Denver Colorado.

On second thought probably not, I think that bunch spelled their name with an E.
