Jobs Will Follow a Strengthening of the Middle Class |


The economy won’t really bounce back until America’s surge toward inequality is reversed. Even if by some miracle President Obama gets support for a second big stimulus while Ben S. Bernanke’s Fed keeps interest rates near zero, neither will do the trick without a middle class capable of spending. Pump-priming works only when a well contains enough water.

Look back over the last hundred years and you’ll see the pattern. During periods when the very rich took home a much smaller proportion of total income — as in the Great Prosperity between 1947 and 1977 — the nation as a whole grew faster and median wages surged. We created a virtuous cycle in which an ever growing middle class had the ability to consume more goods and services, which created more and better jobs, thereby stoking demand. The rising tide did in fact lift all boats.

Nuclear-Plant Disaster Offers Military Lessons |

CAMP S.D. BUTLER, Japan—Japan has become an unlikely laboratory for the U.S. to study modern warfare after the March nuclear accident created conditions like those the military could face if a terror group set off a “dirty” radiological bomb.


“What Tomodachi is probably going to be best known for…is…operations in the radioactive environment,” said Lt. Col. Damien Marsh, commander of Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 265, which was involved in the operation.


It was the first time Marine aircraft had operated in a radiologically contaminated environment, and Lt. Col. Marsh emphasized the “strategic value” of the experience. In the future, he told the visiting commandant, Gen. James Amos, “it’s not hard to believe that we could be responding someplace involving a disaster at a nuclear power plant, dirty bombs or terrorism.”
