Class war: from culture to economics

John Cassidy at the New Yorker has a round-up of some recent news, and asks:

Is this how the American class war begins?

Probably not, but Moises Naim surely has it right when he says: “The long, peaceful coexistence with income and wealth inequality is ending.”

The class war has been going on since the 1960s. It’s only now showing signs of changing from a cultural basis to an economic one.
