|

One of the best recent articles on the new economic classes developing in the Us and other Western countries to a lesser degree.

“In The Great Leveler, the historian Walter Scheidel makes a disturbingly good case that inequality has reliably ended only in catastrophic violence: wars, revolutions, the collapse of states, or plagues and other disasters… The defining challenge of our time is to renew the promise of American democracy by reversing the calcifying effects of accelerating inequality… We should be fighting for opportunities for other people‚Äôs children as if the future of our own children depended on it.”

So many great lines in this piece. It wil take a while to read, but its worth it!
