Global Guerrillas: Economic Cancer
This post and the linked-to article in "The Economist" reach quite different conclusions from the same set of data. Here: 'Essentially, it shows how the post-WW2 social contract that linked productivity improvements to median income gains was shattered in 1974. Since then, the value created by a doubling of productivity went to global capital markets instead of doubling incomes for employees.' -- Economist: '...and the poor will be suffering along with the rich. But although they may lose their jobs and default on their loans, they will not be troubled by collapsing asset prices because they do not own assets.' -- Nice one, Economist.
