“One central fact about the global economy lurks just beneath the year’s remarkable headlines: Economic growth in advanced nations has been weaker for longer than it has been in the lifetime of most people on earth.”
–from the New York Times
Economic growth is slow; that is all we really know.
Rich folks keep on getting wealth; the poor survive on hope and stealth.
When the Revolution comes, and each heart with tumult thrums —
Inequality will end! (And steel bars I’m like to bend.)
