We can get past the present impasse, provided that we start with a better diagnosis of the crisis

Most Americans have slogged through years of lowered standards, lowered expectations and higher prices. When politics and the economy can get twenty-somethings away from the video games long enough to Occupy Wall Street for a month, shit is bad.

Bad and complicated. Congress, the Senate and the White House seem to be searching for a silver bullet to make everything all better again. Ain’t gonna happen. Our economy is too complicated, and too intertwined with the Yuan and the Euro… So, this outline of A Way Forward looks just complicated enough to me that it may have a chance of actually working.

Anybody who suggests evaluating what worked in the 1930s to drag our country out of depression may just be on the right track.
