You'd have to be living in a cave or be a complete tool or idiot to think what is happening in this country economically is anything other than intentional.
The neoliberal poison began with Reagan and has been continued by politicians in both political parties ever since. It's going to take a miracle to undo this mess now that the rich have way too much money and way too much power. Congress of course could repeal the last thirty years of tax policies, trade agreements, and economic policies that have screwed the rest of us over, but there is NO political will to do it.
People have GOT to realize there are NO meaningful differences between the two parties anymore. Most are still adhering to outdated ideas regarding left-right, conservative-liberal, Democrat-Republican when in reality there is just the tiny few against the rest of us.
Note: This interview is two years ago, but of course things are even worse now.
