Toya Morton-Swanson is taking no prisoners with her new debut novel...
...but the EDC may be confiscating the independent business where her book is sold.
One way to describe New York state is that there's capitalism for the poor and socialism for the rich. This is because the generous tax benefits that powerful interests receive, while the rest of us pay our taxes.
One small business that is fulfilling its own vision and contributing to our economy is A&B Book Distributors of 225 Duffield Street, which carries the work of Ms. Morton-Sanson. The NYC Economic Development Corporation wants to confiscate and destroy this business for dubious economic gains.
So maybe we should really describe New York as Socialism for the rich and confiscation for everyone else.
