information revolution is a disappointment. Jobs get slashed, but there is no increase in the creation of actual wealth or value.
There has been an increase in wealth, but most of it has gone to the top 1%. Trickle-down is not simply not working anymore. Sorry, Republicans, but you have it all wrong. You are applying 1960 economics to the wrong era. Tax the wealthy to fix our rotting infrastructure; then we'll have jobs, consumers, and working roads and pipes.
