From the Economist: A new era of economics Some really good thinking about where the world is going as a result of Covid. Excerpt: Quo vadis? Past thinking simply wont do. The past, as I witnessed it, was the Industrial Age. Both the US and the EU are way, way beyond that age. Which has moved very considerably to the Far East because of comparative wages between "there and here". So, what's the alternative? Quite simply this, and Uncle Sam had better fast get on the Band-Wagon: Free post-secondary education at all state supported schools. Meaning nursery-school, primary-school, secondary- and post-secondary schooling!* That is, Free - Gratis - and For nothing ... ! *It would also help in America that a Civics Test become a sine-qua-non for a high-school diploma.
