Am I a health care business metric or a physician?

The title of Noam Scheiber’s January 9, 2016 New York Times piece on hospitalists, “Doctors Unionize to Resist the Medical Machine,” skirts the bigger issue for doctors, which has less to do with contracts, salaries and labor relations, and much more to do with the question, “Is health care just another business, and if so, […]

Regarding the “Private Tax System” of the Wealthy

Yesterday, the New York Times published an interesting piece by Patricia Cohen and Noam Scheiber about trends in wealth management and tax planning among the richest Americans. The article posits that several thousand extremely wealthy Americans now operate under a “private tax system” that applies only to them. Show More Summary

The simple reason the rich will always be one-step ahead of the IRS

NY Times Front-Page Celebrates Obama the Champion of Workers Rights Eroded by 'Conservative Governance'

The front page of Tuesday's New York Times featured labor reporter Noam Scheiber celebrating Obama as (finally!) the champion of workers' rights, belatedly beating back the retrograde efforts by Ronald Reagan and free-market conservatives...Show More Summary

Labor Unity

Noam Scheiber’s dissection of how labor so successfully torpedoed the Trans Pacific Partnership in the House (thus far anyway, again I’m still suspicious this passes somehow) shows how labor can still win today. First, it is united and pushes very hard on erstwhile allies that are ready to abandon it. Second, it crafts alliances with […]

How two DC lawyers are making family-friendly a workplace priority

Two lawyers in Washington, DC, were fed up with having to be "on" all the time at the firms where they worked. So they started their own. Maria Simon and Rebecca Gellar are partners at the Gellar Law Group, which Noam Scheiber profiled...Show More Summary

Where Have All the Populists Gone?

The wealthiest Americans don’t care about inequality, and our presidential candidates are following their lead. That’s not to say they aren’t talking about inequality. They are, for anyone who will listen. As Noam Scheiber notes for the New York Times, Sens. Show More Summary

Class Struggle In The USA

Noam Scheiber has a hard hitting article on the front page of “2016 Candidates and Wealthy Are Aligned on Inequality” The content should be familiar to AngryBear readers.

Labor Reporting

The New York Times is replacing the retiring Stephen Greenhouse on its labor beat with…..Noam Scheiber. Who is an OK reporter but when has he had anything interesting to say about unions? Does he even really care about unions per se? Has he walked a picket line? I don’t think he’s ever written about these […]

Noam Scheiber: The Left Must Never Walk and Chew Gum!

There hasn’t exactly been a dearth of terrible argumentation today, but here’s one more example for the case files – and it’s a doozy. According to Noam Scheiber, author of The Escape Artists, Bill DeBlasio has erred: instead of transcending the Obama coalition, Mr. de Blasio has become its prisoner…from the get-go, Mr. de Blasio’s […]

Where Fighting Police Violence = “Flawed Liberalism”

Unlike Noam Scheiber, I don’t have a problem with Bill DeBlasio emphasizing police violence against people of color. Scheiber would rather see DeBlasio become an economic populist and unite the poor of all races. Well, I’d like to see that too, but that doesn’t mean DeBlasio was wrong in emphasizing police violence. What Scheiber seems […]

Can Republicans Avoid The Trap Obama Set?

Noam Scheiber highly doubts it: [T]he conservative message machine has gone on at length about the “constitutional crisis” the president is instigating. The right has compared Obama to a monarch (see here and here), a Latin American caudillo, even a conspirator against the Roman Republic. (Ever melodrama much?) The rhetoric gets a little thick. But […]

Can We Talk? Here's Why the White Working Class Hates Democrats

Noam Scheiber takes on one of the lessons du jour that always crop up after a party gets shellacked at the polls: how do we appeal to demographic group X that voted so heavily against us? In this case, the party is the Democrats, and...Show More Summary

Freedom of Association: What Noam Scheiber Misses

(August 27, 2014 03:32 PM, by David Henderson) In an otherwise excellent reporting piece in the New Republic, Senior Editor Noam Scheiber gives his view about why the governor's race in Wisconsin is so important.
