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.
