The 1970s, today, and the implications for equitable growth


Consider the themes that predominate in American political discourse today. Political polarization. A seemingly endless land war in Asia. Anxieties about/celebration of changing sexual mores. Debate about race, gender, and class inequities. Disruptions of older industries and the rise of new ones thanks to offshoring and automation. Worries about the geopolitical, economic, and environmental implications of dependence on fossil fuels. A Cold War with Russia. Hot wars among the nations of the Middle East. Plus ça change!
