draft version of the platform was released Friday, amid an ongoing battle to get Sanders to end his presidential campaign and endorse presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton
 
The platform explicitly calls for a $15 minimum wage, a position long espoused by Sanders. 
 
"Democrats believe that the current minimum wage is a starvation wage and must be increased to a living wage," the text reads.

Not only did he make partner at Goldman Sachs, so did his father in the 1960s. With over 30 years of experience at the top levels of finance, Mnuchin was present for every recent major banking innovation, including those that brought the country to the brink of economic collapse.

American Power Under Challenge Masters of Mankind (Part 1)
By Noam Chomsky

This piece, the first of two parts, is excerpted from Noam Chomsky’s new book, Who Rules the World?politan Books.  Part 2 will be posted on Tuesday morning.

When we ask “Who rules the world?” we commonly adopt the standard convention that the actors in world affairs are states, primarily the great powers, and we consider their decisions and the relations among them. That is not wrong. But we would do well to keep in mind that this level of abstraction can also be highly misleading.
