These are two case studies in breaking the 1% for more public enterprise to balance private greed and are a good start for trying to rid the country of such totally usurious undue influence as with "citizens united", etal. that we are suffering under today here in America, even if they seems a bit too socialistic for me, but afterall, they were following the Russians with their moves in 1918 and gave up on that early !
The biggest thing I find missing in this article is reference to the work ethic that built America in the first place, otherwise, socialism becomes unearned entitlement based if not watched over like Greece, and the country fails.
The other missing part of the story is the reward/incentive for superior ideas and performance, otherwise you end up with a mediocre country, as many accuse these two of being. At a minimum, with such high taxes, it discourages many from pursuit of higher goals and standards IMO.
