Krugman: Losing Our Country

What better way to christen this blog than by citing Paul Krugman. Especially when he goes after the economic uncertainty and growing class divisions of our times.

From Losing Our Country - New York Times:

Baby boomers like me grew up in a relatively equal society. In the 1960's America was a place in which very few people were extremely wealthy, many blue-collar workers earned wages that placed them comfortably in the middle class, and working families could expect steadily rising living standards and a reasonable degree of economic security.

But as The Times's series on class in America reminds us, that was another country. The middle-class society I grew up in no longer exists.
