Paul Krugman writes this today in the NYT:
“the weaknesses of American society, despite our national wealth, are obvious: Extreme inequality, including racial inequality on a scale whites can find hard to comprehend. A weak social safety net, including a unique failure among advanced countries to guarantee universal health care. Terrible work-life balance, with far less vacation and family time than a wealthy nation should have.
And a personal, informal observation: Trump is an extreme case, but we are a nation obsessed with the notion of winners and losers.”
