    Don’t Look Now, But Our Country Is In A Place It Hasn’t Been For Well Over 100 Years

    A few definitions to tee this up:

    Oligarchy: A society where power is in the hands of very few people, usually determined by wealth, corporate and family ties, and the military.

    The Gilded Age: From the 1870s to the early 1900s, our country was run by very few people (think John D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, Andrew W. Mellon, Andrew Carnegie) but also marked by extreme poverty. The term was coined by Mark Twain and Charles Dudley Warner to mean “an era of serious social problems disguised by thin gold gilding.”

    So … are we there yet?!

    WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GRADUATE FROM COLLEGE INTO A BAD LABOR MARKET?

    “You will never recover,” warns the Nobel prize-winning economist Paul Krugman citing evidence from past recessions in a recent interview with Bill Moyers on PBS. “By the time you get a chance to get a job that makes any use of your skills you will already be tarred…it just shadows your whole life.”

    This video is just a four minute excerpt from the compelling forty-seven minute interview. Watch the entire discussion to learn more about the “hidden misery” of the current recession and why Krugman considers “food stamps are the soup kitchens of today.”

    In his latest book, End This Depression Now!, Paul Krugman argues how national recovery could be felt in just two years. It’s available in paperback on January 28th.
