Another good look at what needs to change. Winner-Take-All Politics, How Washington Made the Rich Richer- And turned Its Back on the Middle Class


I recently attended a talk by Paul Pierson, a co-author of Winner-Take-All Politics, How Washington Made the Rich Richer- And turned Its Back on the Middle Class.  They have done their homework and most of his conclusions and implications seemed sound to me.  This is not new news but the rate of change statistics of the uber-rich pulling away from everyone else is startling…. jaw droppingly so.   The causality conclusions put the responsibility on the poor performance of our polarized partisan political nightmare as it has played out over the last 30 years.  The Economist did a piece on it in September .  Here it is with a link to the original.  Enjoy.  Walt
