MIT prof: We're now 3rd World.

Elizabeth Warren, Robert Reich, Bernie Sanders, Warren Buffet and Hilllary are ALL right. And it was said succinctly by Bill Cinton: "It's the economy stupid."

AND ACCORDING TO AN MIT ECONOMIST (see link below) THIS IS NOT A RADICAL FRINGE IDEA: Structurally we're already a "3rd World" Country and Democrats need to address the "common good" and gross economic inequality. Speaking for myself, but I know others are already there:

WHAT DEMOCRATS SHOULD EMPHASIZE:
Democrats are for the common good, not a minority of well-to-do economic elites. This means a strong, effective infrastructure for a PEOPLE'S economy. Increase money for education and roads, decrease loopholes for the rich.

AND AFTER THAT SINKS IN: Stop scapegoating women, African Americans, immigrants, the press, even the environment. The real problem is extreme economic inequality which affects EVERYBODY.

2. We are on the way to becoming one faster than many think.

Robert Reich is brilliant and I saw his film "Inequality For All" and heard him speak. It spells it out very clearly.
