Michael Lind, sul Financial Times, argomenta che le ricette liberal ("knowledge economy") e conservatrici ("ownership society") non servono una cippa al lavoratore medio americano.
America’s struggling workforce faces mass unemployment, low pay, inadequate benefits and highly regressive taxation. The centre-right’s ownership society and the centre-left’s knowledge economy are irrelevant to these problems. It is an insult to tell struggling health aides and store clerks to supplement their income by investing in stocks. It is a cruel joke to tell most of them that they should go to college, become entrepreneurs and found start-ups.
