Jesse Myerson wrote a piece about economic reform at The Rolling Stone, which really set conservatives off. In particular, they were real keen on calling his proposed reforms communism.
Hoping to bring some sense to the discussion, I explained on Saturday that four of the five reforms Myerson advocated already exist in America right now in one form or another. Here I want to build on that with a special focus on Republican-controlled Alaska. Why Alaska? Because it already has two (and arguably three) of Myerson’s proposals in place right now. It is, I guess, America’s great communist province.
