45. "Why didnít we share the gains from globalization and technological advances more broadly?"

They were shared in the form of lower prices. I don't think people knew what they were trading for the lower prices. Also, the population has been growing while the need for unskilled labor has been shrinking. The Internet drastically lowered the price of information and knowledge.

We need a lot more Democrats in office, imo. We don't need to have a centralized economy, but we need the government to manage the people's interests better.
