Your "modern economics," which if you actually learn the history of the system we have in place (go back about 600 years), are what have brought us to where we are. Most of the world lives in poverty. The middle classes of western countries are shrinking while more of the wealth accumulates in the hands of fewer and fewer. The economic powers that be prefer we live as citizens of the Third World controlled by police states or dictators. The quaint notion of our children living better lives than ourselves has past. Unless you are one of the lucky elite, totally liquid and able to do whatever you like whenever you want, then count yourself as one of us. And pray for the change she is talking about.
