Tudo como dantes?

Opina Simon Jonhson:
"The United States has, over the past two decades, started to take on characteristics more traditionally associated with Latin America: extreme income inequality, rising poverty levels, and worsening health conditions for many. The elite live well and seem not to mind repeated cycles of economic-financial crisis. In fact, if you want to be cynical, you might start to think that the most powerful of the well-to-do actually don’t lose much from a banking sector run amok – providing the government can afford to provide repeated bailouts (paid for presumably through various impositions on people outside the uppermost elite strata)."
A coisa grave é que o modo como está a processar-se a saída da crise parece reforçar esse modelo. Um problema que também nós cá temos.
