Listen to this economist

Dean Baker’s newest column in the Huffington Post is simply outstanding. The whole thing is so good it’s hard to pick a highlight, so here’s just one:

“In short, we have an economic system that, even when it is working, has been rigged to redistribute income to the rich. And we have a political system that at a time of immense economic distress is more focused on undercutting the means of support for working families than fixing the economy. It is hard to understand why everyone is not occupying Wall Street.”
