Let's not overestimate the size of the "rift" in the Atlantic. The two sides have never agreed on everything.

"China was and remains a pure mercantilist power, whose grand total of protectionist policies put both the US and Europe to shame"

Yes. A much-needed piece of perspective. Whatever your position on trade policy, the Chinese are not good guys. You do not want them rising to the position of leading global superpower.

@Starbucks The police were called because these men hadn’t ordered anything. They were waiting for a friend to show up, who did as they were taken out in handcuffs for doing nothing. All the other white ppl are wondering why it’s never happened to us when we do the same thing.

How is this even possible? There are so many problems at so many levels in this equation...

American car makers (and some European marques) are on the highway to hell. They can make great cars when they want to, but mostly churn out ediocre products riddled with faults, often made in exploitative conditions outside (and perhaps even inside) the US, and couple that with appalling customer service. Thanks, but no thanks.

Amazon Doesn’t Just Want to Dominate the Market—It Wants to Become the Market

The company is a radically new kind of monopoly with ambitions that dwarf those of earlier empires.

Back in late 1930's (almost eight years ago) American workers were able to overcome all obstacles and establish workers and their unions as a force to contend with and forced FDR to legislate some of the most advanced Labor codes the world had ever seen.
All these achievements were done not because anyone 'gave' American workers fair wages and benefits, they were established because American workers took them by their own hands through incredibly difficult and heroic fights, led by a movement that was animated by the direct participation, decision making and the leadership of the rank and file.
There's no easy shortcuts to overcome all the setbacks and defeats of the past few decades which the workers movement in the US has experienced.
Simply put: no one will ‘give’ American workers fair wages or anything else which they justifiably deserve. American workers need to (and hopefully will) take back what is theirs and establish social justice and sanity back in American body politics.
Recent victory of the Teachers' union in West Virginia is a great starting point for this revival, and the central, significant role of the rank and file in that victory a winning model to follow.
And a good source to keep up with all the latest in the American labor movement, from a rank and file point of view is a publication called LABOR NOTES.

Labor Notes: a media and organizing project that has been the voice of union activists who want to put the movement back in the labor movement since 1979.

Hundreds of thousands of jobs were added, but there's really no analysis of what types of jobs.
Have a feeling that majority of them were entry-level lower wage level Service occupations, or "Gig economy" stuff, some of which now is even lower than minimum wage (see the recent studies on how many Uber & Lyft drivers are actually losing money).
The article however mentions that "wage acceleration slid to a 2.6 % annual pace from a 2.8% in January.
With all these substantial qualifications in mind could (or should) any of this be called real improvements or solid growth?

It's amusing how these days even the New York Times, a long term proponent of Neoliberalism, publishes article critical of the current state of economy.
Note how this critique is not exactly an "anti-capitalist" critiques of the system (but based on traditional Neoclassical theories and biases; Theory of Perfect Competition,...) yet the conclusions it reaches would be very similar to ones reached by a progressive, Leftist critiques of political-economy.

"Wages are unlikely to rise much in a job market dominated by a few big employers....markets dominated by a few businesses will most likely deter start-ups from appearing on the scene.

Rents interfere with incentives in a big way. Companies will spend more time and effort trying to preserve those rents — often by working to block rivals from their markets. Rivals will fight to grab a share of those rents for themselves, perhaps through lobbying. Amid all this jockeying, investment in productive capabilities will most likely be neglected as a secondary consideration.

And inevitably, inequality will rise: The owners of the shares in the powerful corporations capturing the economy’s growing monopoly rents will peel further and further away from the average Jane and Joe, who own little but their labor.

This is not the kind of economy proposed by classical economic theory. It is not the kind of country portrayed by evangelists of the American dream. But it looks as if we are stuck with it, regardless of what the stock market does tomorrow."

There was an article in today's NYT about a "Crypto Utopia" and building a society that runs on blockchain. It still sounds a bit Greek to me, but it's interesting.

Only Wall St. is doing really great. But Wall St. has lost any true, actual connection to the everyday economy which ordinary people experience a long while ago. Main Street and Wall St. are two different stories, a tale of two cities; or rather two streets.
Meanwhile overvalued, bloated stocks are just that, hyped and rather bubbly. And as we all know bubbles come and go, but mostly burst, like in 2008. (It almost rhymes!)
However real wages still stagnant compared to COLA, and most people still having housing and healthcare issues, if not living check to check; or worst: the new Nomads living in Walmart parking lots and the Amazon army of seasonals.
Last time Wall St. was doing this great was 2008. And the 'correction' set in. Most analyst point to another 'correction' due this or next year.

P.S. And whoever doesn't give Barry, O. the deserved recognition and due in efforts for job creation, then they ought to take a good look below & enjoy!

Thanx for sharing this, it's a good article, the focus on non-market solutions, resources and value system is refreshing.
Don't know about 'billionaires' but there's been many calls and campaigns for payment of wages for housework. Some experts have argued the idea of wages for houseworks is an idea whose has arrived.
There's also an annual Global Women's Strike on March 8th, with an emphasis on Housework and its wages.

In the article below Middle East is called a barrel of gunpowder.
When one first hears that description it sound an apt metaphor, then you read items like this and there's nothing metaphorical about our region as a barrel of gunpowder.
An expensive, high-tech, explosion prone barrel.
