Twilight of the Elites: America After Meritocracy

Twilight of the Elites: America After Meritocracy - Christopher L. Hayes Well worth reading, but nothing really new or earth shattering. Hayes writes well and very clearly describes the problems with our current politics and economy. According to him the biggest problem is inequality, the concentration of wealth and power among a small number of "elites" and the corresponding loss by the bulk of the citizens. The solution he outlines is rather nebulous and he seems a lot more optimistic about it than I am.
