Gilder compares America's current economic challenges with her past economic problems-- particularly those of the late 1970s-- and explains why Obama's big-government, redistributive policies are doing more harm than good for the poor. He makes the case that supply-side economics and free market policies are-- and always will be-- the answer to decreasing America's poverty rate and increasing her prosperity.

Obama's policies are bad for workers and the poor, and the working poor, because under his administration, and past administrations going back at least to Jimmy Carter, but probably to Johnson, workers' bargaining power has been going downwards!
What has always disturbed me about Gilder, besides his ad hominem, not backed by hard data, attacks on working people and the poor, is that the Fake Newsies never explain that Gilder is David Rockefeller's adopted son, and that Rockefeller paid for his college, b-school, his first car [and perhaps all others] and his house. We should all be so fortunate!!!!!
