Links for November 8

Yudof announced no mid-year tuition hikes.  I wonder if he is nervous about protests at the Regents' party next week?

UC Davis plows ahead with plan to increase out-of-state and international students.

Bob Samuels discusses the rising inequality at UC here and here.

CSU faculty, librarians, and coaches to hold 1 day strike at two campuses.

As the CBP notices, some of California's wealthiest are CEOs of corporations that pay no federal income taxes. Somehow I suspect that is not because they don't make enough to pass the threshold for taxation.

Ohio voters reject GOP effort to attack collective bargaining.  Even the NYT notices.

Remember all those conservative claims that the poverty statistics overstated poverty?  Well the newer method has taken a look--and the numbers are even higher especially among the elderly.  Of course you can't convince a University of Chicago economist of the facts..

Check out our new Documents for Dissidence box in the upper right.  It provides announcements and background information and analysis that might be useful for upcoming protests.
