    This is Republican doctrine. This is an extension of a several election cycles of Republican candidates and politicians denigrating “European style socialism” along with more support for authoritarianism among the base.

    Thought this was interesting. Note these are on "global income" numbers, meaning if ya make $40k a year, you're a 1%'er.



    Perhaps most fascinating is the middle and upper middle: the trough from the 50th to 90th percentile goes along way in explaining the rise of popularism around the world, from Brexit top Trumpism to burn it all down and start over.

    label your fucking Y-Axis. When linked it doesn't show what it's measuring, but its interesting to note that unless you are in the 99.99'er, your share of income growth is lesser than that in the bottom 50%. Basically shows why the middle class are rejecting the welfare state, they're growing the least.

    Oh, I dunno. If your country gets nukes, then you have to meet with Trump. The threat of that alone might be enough to dissuade some dictators from building them. "You mean if we develop nukes I'll have to spend several hours meeting with that guy, listening to him brag on himself incessantly, and have him beg me for property rights for Trump hotels, casinos, and golf courses? No thanks." LOL.

    ...Policy, it turns out, matters. More aggressive redistribution through taxes and transfers has spared Europe from the acute disparities that Americans have grown used to. Unequal access to education is helping reproduce inequality in the United States down the generations...

    ...If the evolution of income inequality in every country remains on the same path it has been since 1980, the plateau in global inequality since 2000 will prove to be but a temporary blip: by 2050, the bottom half of the world’s population will draw only 9 percent of the world’s income, a percentage point less than today. One-percenters at the top, by contrast, will reap 24 percent of the global income pie, up from 21 percent in 2016.

    But again, policy matters. Say countries decide to push vigorously back against inequality — as vigorously as the European Union pushed in the 36 years after 1980. In that case, the world’s income gap would even shrink a little: by 2050, the bottom half would get 13 percent of the pie; the share of the top 1 percent would shrink to 19 percent of the world’s income.

    What we probably don’t want the world to do is follow the trajectory of inequality in the United States. If it were to do that, by 2050 the few at the top of the pyramid would be drawing 28 percent of global income. The bottom half would get only about 6 percent.

    Also is he wearing a mismatched suit? Those pants look a few shades darker than the jacket.

    LOL. My comment was a joke. Although, I do have the sense that meetings with Trump usually aren't as fun as he no doubt thinks they are. Probably even the hookers and blow that have no doubt been present at some private meetings had to be provided and paid for by somebody else (probably because Trump wouldn't pay for services rendered, like many of his other contracts for various things.)
