The War on the Post Office 20.3.2018 Truthout - All Articles
The US banking establishment has been at war with the post office since 1910, when the Postal Savings Bank Act established a public savings alternative to a private banking system that crashed the economy in the Bank Panic of 1907. Now, the US Postal Service, under attack from a manufactured crisis designed to force its privatization, needs a new source of funding to survive. Postal banking could fill that need.

The stock market is worried about inflation. Should it be? 8.2.2018 SFGate: Business & Technology
