A  few years ago, the greatest menace to the mom-and-pop shop was the Big Box store-"Walmartization"-cannibalizing Main Street's small businesses and pauperizing workers.

 According to a study of Amazon's community impact by the Institute for Local Self Reliance (ILSR) the mega-retailer has transformed shopping into an increasingly dehumanized process, while consolidating the labor infrastructure into a giant network of low-wage logistical chains where workers' economic security shrinks and community-based businesses wither.

President-elect Donald J. Trump's promise to deport two million to three million immigrants who have committed crimes suggested that he would dramatically step up removals of both people in the United States illegally and those with legal status.

The Obama administration has estimated that 1.9 million "removable criminal aliens" are in the United States. That number includes people who hold green cards for legal permanent residency and those who have temporary visas. It also includes people who have been convicted of nonviolent crimes such as theft, not just those found guilty of felonies or gang-related violence.

Washington State voters rejected a proposal for the nation's first carbon tax Tuesday, defeating a landmark attempt to address climate change that had divided environmental activists.

The carbon tax was expected to raise $2 billion annually through higher prices for gasoline and fossil fuel-fired electricity. It would have given all the money back, and then some, to the state's residents and businesses through a sales tax cut, rebates for working families and a tax break for manufacturers.

SEATTLE - A Thurston County judge has penalized a food industry group $18 million for concealing the true source of contributions to oppose a 2013 food labeling initiative.

More and more electric vehicles are being brought to market, but a lack of viable batteries could hold back the technology being accepted by drivers, analysts have warned.

Lithium-ion batteries are in high demand in order to power electric vehicles, however there are concerns whether enough batteries will be produced in order to support the market for electric vehicles. "We are seeing an acceleration in the bringing of electric vehicles to market, but the big question we have is where are the batteries going to come from for these vehicles?" George Galliers, autos analyst at Evercore ISI, told CNBC's Squawk Box Europe.
