Andy Stern, the former president of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), spent four years traveling the country and asking economists, futurists, labor leaders, CEOs, investment bankers, entrepreneurs, and political leaders to help envision the US economy 25 to 30 years from now. He vividly reports on people who are analyzing and creating this new economy - such as investment banker Steve Berkenfeld; David Cote, the CEO of Honeywell International; and Andy Grove of Intel. Through these stories, we come to a stark and deeper understanding of the toll technological progress will continue to take on jobs and income and its inevitable effect on tens of millions of people. But there is hope for our economy and future. The foundation of economic prosperity for all Americans, Stern believes, is a universal basic income. The idea of a universal basic income for all Americans is controversial, but American attitudes are shifting. Stern has been a game changer throughout his career, and his next goal is to create a movement that will force the political establishment to take action against something that many on both the right and the left believe is inevitable. 1.

And so it goes, the whole long way down, as the elevator stops on each floor, and at each stop someone connected to his brother gets on to give Will a piece to a bigger story than the one he thi... 1.

Eve was pleased at the turnout for the Dominant Wives Society´s first hands-on meeting. The six couples, all the females being her friends as well as dominatrixes. All of them had brought their husbands. It was a better turnout than Eve had hoped and expected. Once everyone had arrived, the males wearing nothing but vinyl shorts and leashes that were held by their wives and the women wearing their black leather mini dresses with corsets to push up their breasts and make their waists look smaller, everyone gathered down in the basement where Eve had chairs set up in her beautiful dungeon. The chairs were dark red velvet for the ladies to sit in and the males were to sit on the floor next to their wife. Eve´s husband was obediently at her side on the floor wearing his vinyl shorts and leash. Eve began to speak, ´´Thank you everyone for coming tonight. Tonight I am going to teach you how to turn your husbands into cuckold husbands.´´ The wives were smiling. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Candy Kross.
