    And who's going to prepare for that eventuality? The neoliberals? Hardly.

    With higher wages, a flatter compensation pyramid, and muscular trade policy and enforcement to prevent labor and environmental exploitation, we'd have an economy that would boom.

    There's no point having $7.25/.hour jobs, for anyone. Nobody can live on that. So then we have to subsidize those jobs through government.

    What's the point of letting neoliberals into the tent when neoliberalism is burning down the campground?
