My RANT for the day:
If ever there was an article that summed up why my party - the Democratic Party - needed to break from the tired dogmas of the past, it is this amazing article from the NYT.
We are aren't just rushing into a new economic age - we are already there. It's an age where the INDIVIDUAL needs to be empowered to adapt and innovate, as they will become increasingly become more responsible for their own economic welfare, and less reliant on any one or set of employers or institutions. The social safety net will need to focus less on guarantees and more on flexibility to allow workers to achieve.
This transition won't be fun. As noted below, it will be terrifying. There will be winners and losers. But we can't stop it. We can't slow it down. If we try, we all lose.

As always, my rants are my own, and don't reflect the views of my clients and or associates!
