Abstract

Runaway inequality is placing tremendous pressure on the world’s democracies and on our international capacity for peace. The widespread loss of security among the world’s middle and working classes has produced a Janus-faced response: one listening to our better angels and seeking equity, the other preying on our fears, looking to blame anyone with, say, brown or black skin. “They’re stealing our jobs!” Spoken just like someone who has never met, let alone worked or eaten alongside or shared with, an immigrant laborer. Meanwhile, our social, political, and economic institutions are teetering on the brink of collapse— climate change, racist candidates being elected to positions of great political power, unparalleled concentrations of wealth and property, and on and on.
