More on Kai-Fu Lee.
Hurr Durr … Chinaman:
Guess whose books arrived here today?
I think this issue might be worthy of more of our attention.
Yeah, this is due to a combination of automation, offshoring, mass immigration and a broad shift back to the conservative-lolbertarian economic paradigm:
“What’s happening: Since the early 1970s, the American middle class has shrunk to about half of all families, from about 60%, according to Pew, a trend that’s taken on more importance since the financial crash, becoming a substantial feature of the nation’s broad disaffection.”
I’ve described in recent posts how bad it got here under sharecropping and farm tenancy until that way of looking at the world was marginalized in the Great Depression.
There is really only one choice in 2020.
Note: I’ve always read other smart people because I enjoy learning more about the world. See all the dozens of book reviews in our archives. Also, there is probably some dumb leftwing journo reading this site who wants to play the stupid “do you disavow” game, and will continue to ask Yang and Kai-Fu Lee about the budding interest of “white supremacists” in this subject.
YES, I am concerned about this issue and fascinated by the impact it is going to have on both my own future and that of everyone in my area, and I couldn’t care less what dumb politically correct leftwing journos think about it who are less vastly less educated than me. In fact, one of the best aspects of artificial intelligence and automation will be automating away the jobs of dumb leftwing journos and doing away with all of their politically correct nonsense.
