How to Restore the American Dream by Fareed Zakaria

Fareed Zakaria on How to Restore the American Dream - TIME

A good read. Talks about the reasons we find ourselves in this economical situation, and offers some ideas that cut across political lines to get out of it.

There is little (if anything) that is new in here, but I think it is important for the influential thinkers/writers to crank up the volume on non-partisan ideas. Maybe they can drown the divisive voices from both extremes of the political spectrum

Quote:
People often note that America's political system is broken. Perhaps the truth is more awkward: America needs radical change, and it has an 18th century system determined to check and balance the absolute power of a monarchy. It is designed for gridlock at a moment when quick and large-scale action is our only hope.
