“Cobre dos Super-Ricos ou Enfrente uma Revolução”

Confira aqui um excelente artigo de Paul Farrell, ex investidor do bando Morgan Stanley, sobre a calamitosa situação da distribuição de renda nos EUA, além dos 20% de desemprego aberto (incluindo desempregados, empregados em turno parcial e os que já desistiram de buscar emprego). O título do artigo, “Tax the Super Rich Now or Face a Revolution“, mostra bem como a desigualdade social corroe a democracia norte-americana e monta o palco para revoltas populares e uma crise no século 21 de proporções ainda maiores. Realmente, um curto texto que vale a pena ser lido:

“Revolutions build over long periods — to critical mass, a flash point. Then they ignite suddenly, unpredictably. Like Egypt, started on a young Google executive’s Facebook page. Then it goes viral, raging uncontrollably. Can’t be stopped. Here in America the set-up is our nation’s pervasive “Super-Rich Delusion”

The Super-Rich Delusion has pushed us to the edge of a great precipice: Remember the Roaring Twenties? The Crash of 1929? Great Depression? Just days before the crash one leading economist, Irving Fisher, predicted that stocks had “reached what looks like a permanently high plateau.”

Yes, he was trapped in the “Great Gatsby Syndrome,” an earlier version of today’s Super-Rich Delusion. It was so blinding in 1929 that the president, Wall Street, all America were sucked in … until the critical mass hit a mysterious flash point, triggering the crash”
