Lead: The Dutch Farmer Uprising

In the Netherlands, farmers are taking to the streets to protest proposed new laws that would severely restrict their livelihood. If it feels reminiscent of the Canadian trucker envoy, it is because it is. 

The law would require farmers to cut their nitrous oxide emissions, which are largely produced by animal farming. Farmers say that they are being unfairly targeted since the government could choose any other industry to start to lower emissions, including aviation, construction, transportation, and manufacturing. They also say that they have not been given clear rules and guidelines and fear that many of them will go out of business in short order and food shortages will be the result. 

We all know that cutting emissions will require sacrifices from us all but are governments asking small businesses to take the hit while allowing big businesses to carry on as normal and reap the profits all the while? It sure seems like it. This law was born when the government was not allowed to negotiate new construction projects due to emissions standards. In order to make way for construction, it took to budget emissions away from farming. 

Uber Has Some Explaining To Do

Uber reportedly paid academics to publish reports showing that its business model was beneficial to society. They went on to use this “data” to lobby governments where their business model was threatened. 

The Guardian shows that Uber paid academics six-figure sums to produce research that the company liked. The biggest recipients were in Germany and France where authorities were threatening to implement laws that would harm Uber. 

The research in question constructed a “positive narrative, namely that [Uber] created well-paid jobs that drivers liked, delivered cheap transport to consumers and boosted productivity.” One academic agreed to the project but then wanted to conduct a separate non-paid study and Uber discouraged it. 

This is not how academic research is supposed to happen, especially with university professors. If an academic wants to work for a company, that is supposed to be disclosed. Not discovered by the press.

The Sri Lankan Collapse

The President of Sri Lanka is expected to resign on Wednesday but citizens are nervous that it is taking so long. 

This weekend, millions of protesters swarmed the Presidential palace and held mass demonstrations in the streets. They demanded the resignation of the politicians that led to the country’s economic collapse. They were told that President Gotabaya Rajapaksa will resign but, understandably, they don’t trust this until they see it. 

The President’s whereabouts are unknown. His brother, former Finance Minister Basil Rajapaksa was stopped from leaving the country at the airport by protestors just today.

Sri Lanka is a warning to us all that government corruption can collapse an economy and cause suffering for the “little guy.” Will Sri Lanka now get a better government? How will it address its debt default? How does a society get put back together after all of this? 

Guess Who's Making a Comeback

Generation Z is bringing back American Girl Dolls by dragging them into their memes. This is the generation that first grew up with the 18-inch dolls and they know the catalogs, the wardrobe, the accessories, the books… You name it, they claim it! 

Now they are claiming them on social media, using shared knowledge of the AG lexicon to make points that are lost on those of us who don’t know it. Like this. I don’t understand that but I’m a Gen Xer. Maybe my 10-year-old daughter would get it?
