Social Security: The second paragraph in the Krugman article is key to understanding why Republicans target the program.
Inequality: It isn’t just the top 1% vs. the 99%.

That I disagree with much of what the last two articles say is an understatement. What do those articles get right – or wrong? (My analytical tool, in short: theory vs. practice. If the theory is correct, why doesn’t it work the way it’s supposed to in practice?) Look up the article on the Kansas Experiment, posted earlier – why haven’t conservative economic policies created an economic nirvana?
