Jean Pisani-Ferry — The Abandonment of Progress

Elites are starting to wake up and are realizing there is a pressing problem they had better get busy solving if they want to stay in power. At least some of them are.

I would not call it the abandonment of progress as much as the stalling of progress and that is the problem. If the progress were distributed there would not be these issues.

There seems to be a prevalence of linear thinking and a dearth of dialectical thinking.
