20. Inevitable.

It is the nature of capitalism. It is actually progress. I'm not sure where it's going to lead but we're going there whether we like it or not.

We are far better off figuring out how we can profit from it and where our real opportunities lie, than how we can keep our finger in the dike. I think we win by having progressive taxation, effective regulation, strong unions, and a commitment to things like infrastructure and education.

As far as I know basic Ricardian international economics are still valid.
