We Need to Stop Confusing Social Programs with Socialism | DataDrivenInvestor
In the US, social security and social programs are often confused with socialism. For decades now, social programs in country’s such as the United Kingdom have worked well with citizens paying tax for social security nets. But in the US, this is not the case. Private companies often control the rights to healthcare and social programs, subsided by governments. Tom Campenni outlines in his article that the US needs to stop believing social programs are socialist and start accepting that government-run social programs are possible with adequate taxation.

The one thing that will determine whether people will buy into your idea or not. | by Magdalena Bibik | Oct, 2021 | DataDrivenInvestor
As Charles Dickens once said, “An idea, like a ghost, must be spoken to a little before it will explain itself.” And, of course, he was right. Without action on an idea, it will never come to fruition. But acting on an idea requires people to buy into it in the first place. The idea itself might be sound, but making your target market buy into your concept might take a while. Magdalena Bibik’s argues this point in the article above, arguing that it is not the idea that will determine whether people buy into the concept but rather how much patience you have and how long you will wait for them to do so.

Sean Kernan outlines in his article above that the way billionaires are framed in the media determines whether we love them or not. Sean relies on survey data to make his point. For those who love data science, this is the article for you.
