Neoliberalism has destroyed social mobility. Together we must rebuild it

February 25, 2018 ·  · Topic: Economic Mobility  · Relevance: not sure


Image: Jacqui Brown, CC BY-SA 2.0 In his first monthly column for openDemocracy, Paul Mason argues that the mission of radical social democracy must be to rekindle hope in a simple idea: that life in your community will get better. Next week Paul will discuss the issues raised in this essay at a roundtable discussion hosted by openDemocracy at Goldsmiths, University of London. A video of the event will be released shortly after.

Francis Fukuyama and Charles Murray on “Inequality and Populism”

February 25, 2018 ·  · Topic: Economic Mobility  · Relevance: not sure


It is, indeed, part of the liberal attitude to assume that, especially in the economic field, the self-regulating forces of the market will somehow bring about the required adjustments to new conditions, although no one can foretell how they will do this in a particular instance.

There is perhaps no single factor contributing so much to people’s frequent reluctance to let the market work as their inability to conceive how some necessary balance, between demand and supply, between exports and imports, or the like, will be brought about without deliberate control.

There is an almost universal tendency, perhaps an inborn tendency, […]

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan says the city will be better off “when prosperity is shared, and is not just for the few.” She gave her State of the City address on Tuesday. (Erika Schultz/The Seattle Times) Many progressive cities outperform their red counterparts, but Mayor Jenny Durkan’s agenda faces some tough obstacles.

One of the most important lines in Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan’s State of the City address Tuesday was far down in the speech: “But these boom times won’t last and our current spending isn’t sustainable under our current projections. Unfortunately, deficit is on the horizon.” I wish it […]

February 24, 2018 ·  · Topic: Economic Mobility  · Relevance: bad


Donald Trump Like the campaign for Brexit, Donald Trump was elected by people disaffected by the political and economic elite and the perceived corruption of the established politicians in Washington D.C.

Yet many of his policies favour the very elite that he attacks in his campaign rallies.

Income inequality in America has continued to widen to the worse gap in over 100 years, and the older, industrial and rural areas of the country have not recovered from the great recession of 2008-09. Economic mobility is also declining, as far fewer American children are doing better economically than their parents.Not surprisingly, opinion […]
