In The New York Times, Paul Krugman describes the 2000s as The Big Zero: a decade in which nothing good happened, there was zero economic gain for the average family, zero gains for homeowners, zero gain for the stock market. That’s the progressive spin. In fact, the average White American is worse off in countless ways in 2010 than 2000.
As Krugman notes, private sector employment actually declined. The composition of the job market also changed. There are less high paying manufacturing jobs, but more bartenders, waitresses, burger flippers, and Wal-Mart associates. The White middle class and working class faced cut throat economic competition from abroad. College graduates discovered that the advanced degrees they had earned were debt certificates. The filthy rich gorged on the public treasury and sucked up all the net economic gain for themselves.
There are several million more legal immigrants (and illegal aliens) from the Third World in America. Multiculturalism and political correctness have sunk deeper roots. A mulatto has been elected President of the United States. American culture is coarser than it was ten years ago. The White Nationalist movement has grown somewhat in maturity and overall numbers, but remains politically marginalized and confined to the internet.
No one seems to regret the passing of this sorry decade.
