Karl Wilson is a recently retired teacher, tutor, and business owner. He spent many years tutoring, some as a substitute teacher, and a short time as a full-time teacher in a Hawaii public school. It was that last stint that did it. My long-standing academic interests are in political economy and trade, and political psychology, especially insights into the reactionary, authoritarian mind.

Work Harder, They Say What really is killing us is the abject inability or unwillingness to face up to our rigged and dysfunctional system. Even Obama falls into this when he encourages hard work and innovation. Fine, Mr. President, but that's not really what ails us.
