” economic inequality is the defining issue of our time. “
Wanna bet? Our failure to address global warming is the defining issue of our time. Decades from now, almost everyone’s quality of life is going to be much much much worse than what the median enjoys right now. And it won’t improve for centuries.

“Global Savings Glut” means that there is not enough money in circulation. Anyone disagree with that?
