Hi Internet, I’m taking a public social networking hiatus.
I’ve been losing faith in the positives of this in light of the negatives.
I want to distance from people a little.
Annnnd I don’t want to be stalkable by gross judgemental people that have not found better distractions in their lil blip lives.
But thanks, it’s been fun.
My in the dark selfie skills are terrible, but Korean food and lovely company was fabulous tonight!
Will Hutton: Economist Thomas Piketty’s message is bleak: the gap between rich and poor threatens to destroy us:
"[The current] concentration of wealth is already at pre-First World War levels, and heading back to those of the late 19th century, when the luck of who might expect to inherit what was the dominant element in economic and social life. There is an iterative interaction between wealth and income: ultimately, great wealth adds unearned rentier income to earned income, further ratcheting up the inequality process.
The extravagances and incredible social tensions of Edwardian England, belle epoque France and robber baron America seemed for ever left behind, but Piketty shows how the period between 1910 and 1950, when that inequality was reduced, was aberrant. It took war and depression to arrest the inequality dynamic, along with the need to introduce high taxes on high incomes, especially unearned incomes, to sustain social peace. Now the ineluctable process of blind capital multiplying faster in fewer hands is under way again and on a global scale. The consequences, writes Piketty, are “potentially terrifying.”“
