The Political Economy of the United States of America is floundering in Corporate Colonialism – we need a new Moral Economy and Revolution. Peasants, or the 99%, are Rationale Problem Solvers with a sense both of their own interest and of the need to bargain with others to achieve mutually excepted outcomes.
Peasant protests frequently accompany state making, commercialization of agriculture or energy and colonialism. Moral economists link the protest movements to a (presumed) loss of subsistence, security, and welfare by the peasantry during these changes. -Samuel L. Popkin
