The Public Mood
Our story so far: rich people brought the global economy to a near meltdown in 2008. We were saved from a repeat of the Great Depression only by massive interventions from a big, activist government. Today, a year later, the public is in a seething rebellion against.....the big, activist things that the big, activist government did to save us from collapse.
At least, that's the current narrative. But it does not compute.
