Inequality and Unsustainable Growth (2011) - imf.org/external/pubs/ft/sdn/2011/sdn1108.pdf - what are the determinants of sustained growth (answer a middle class). phases of growth. institutional governance (tax evasion and tax avoidance). lobby, revolving door, no representation, career politicians. [...] redistribution should have win-win effect. //&! Richard Wilkinson: How economic inequality harms societies - youtu.be/cZ7LzE3u7Bw - national income per head (average) is not reflective (correlates) for health and child well-being measures, social capital (volunteering, Tories Big Society), mental health, prison population, social mobility. that is why Tories redefined fuel poverty & child poverty! That is why nominal GDP targeting is double edge sword (tax evasion and average national income per head, and being dependent on a industry for GDP (ie Brazil and resources, or south UK and banking - 80% of 2015 growth was consumtion). Leads to status anxiety & materialism/

Robert Reich: America is a nation of Amazons - Salon.com
before we celebrate the dawn of a new era, keep two basic truths in mind. First, these new policies apply only to a tiny group considered “talent” – highly educated and in high demand. They’re getting whatever perks firms can throw at them in order to recruit and keep them. “Netflix’s continued success hinges on us competing for and keeping the most talented individuals in their field,” writes Tawni Cranz, Netflix’s chief talent officer. [...] the vast majority of American workers – considered easily replaceable. Employers treat replaceable workers as costs to be cut, not as assets to be developed. Replaceable workers almost never get paid family leave, they get a few paid sick days, and barely any vacation time. [ three tier economy, those that are replacable, those who are somewhat not, and those who you can't easily replace - the 1% - reflective of CEO pay in parts ]

The Civil Rights Movement Is Going in Reverse in Alabama | New Republic
But in other, less obvious ways, black people in Alabama and across the South are as politically vulnerable as they’ve been since the emergence of the civil rights movement. “It’s a total disempowering of African Americans,” Sanders said. “We are going back to the past very fast.” [...] From that perch, he struck a deal in 2006 with Republican Governor Bob Riley that raised the threshold at which an Alabama family of four starts paying state income tax, from $4,600 annually to $12,500. Knight would have preferred to raise the threshold to the poverty line, but he felt that he had to focus on what was politically feasible. It was an approach indicative of Knight’s overall legislative philosophy. “ [...] Sanders and Knight were criticized by some black politicians, as well as by liberal white ones, for being too timid, too incremental. But the two argued that they were playing a long game and that, eventually, they’d achieve their larger goals.
