Her hearings start June 28th More info at Google Kegan/Princton
Her hearings start June 28th
In her words "Ever since Werner Sombart first posed the question in 1905, countless historians have tired to explain why there is no socialism in America. For the most part, this work focused on external factors--on features of American society rather than of American socialist movements" Ms. Kagen's 1981 Senior Thesis at Princeton University. What is relevant about Werner Somart speaking in 1905 and a student writing her senior paper in 1981. Werner Sombart was a German economist and sociologist, the head of the "Youngest Historical School" and one of the leading Continental European social scientist during the first quarter of the 20th century. Sombart lead the school toward a socialist economics model. "A leading member of the last generation of German Historical School, Werner Sombart nonetheless drew the Historical school away from the conservative and normative weight of the Schmoller group. His early Marxian writings (1894, 1896, 1902) - which include two laudatory studies of its founders (1895, 1909) - did much to disengage it from that heritage"
We can conclude from this Kagen embraces a socialist ecomonic model. If a case of government nationalizing an industry Kagen will vote with the government to nationalize. Ms Kagen will be voting on the court for about forty years if the nomination goes through. Forty years of socialist votes NOT liberal.
