The lack of users in smaller subs. It feels like only the big subverses produce content.

Google is now "Alphabet" submitted by adrianscholl to news

adrianscholl 0 points 25 points (+25|-0) ago

There are two primary reasons why I thought it was appropriate to say that the company we know as Google has become Alphabet:

  1. All Google stock "will automatically convert into the same number of shares of Alphabet." So, financially speaking, what was once Google is now Alphabet.

  2. Larry Page and Sergey Brin are now, respectively, CEO and President of Alphabet, not Google. They are the minds behind the company. If they now run Alphabet, then Google is now Alphabet.

While it is true that the search engine company Google is still Google, the company we called "Google" has been MUCH more than that for a while. THAT company is now Alphabet.

I'm not pro-Sanders, but are you suggesting that wages have not stagnated since the 70's and that the US doesn't have the highest inequality of first world nations?

Edit: tl;dr of the below conversation, /u/ClassicLiberaltarian is offering some alternative data on the compensation-productivity gap and inequality. His basic point is that things look less extreme when taxation, benefits, and inflation are correctly factored in. Although the data still shows that inequality in the US has been rising significantly since the 70s.

I understand it's not instant. But $7.25 to $15 over 4 years is a DRAMATIC increase. That will speed up the loss of minimum wage jobs due to automation. We need to invest in job retraining and education heavily in the time we have, not speed up the destruction of low paying jobs.

I entirely grant that she is not genuine, which is a stark contrast to Sanders. She is a career politician. But I disagree with your claim that she has dramatically changed her views. Her Iraq war vote was a massive blunder, but she has consistently been a bit hawkish (which is a big negative in my opinion). But her being a career politician actually makes me feel more comfortable than Sanders, who I do not think would get things accomplished. Clinton is a career politician, but ultimately her agenda most lines up with what I think is best for this country.

Billionaires and bankers are not evil. The problem is simply that various human motivations combine together in a way that ultimately is harmful for the general public. Also, union interests are not always good; for instance, unions are against automation and free trade. That said it does concern me that Clinton is heavily sponsored by corporate interests, which do not line up with greater welfare. I think Sanders and Warren rallying congress for specific economic changes will force Clinton; she is not so in the pocket of Big Business that she would veto financial regulation (or increased capital gains tax, which she is actually moderately in support of).
