A New Populism Spurs Democrats on the Economy - NY Times
A New Populism Spurs Democrats on the Economy
By ROBIN TONER
Published: July 16, 2007 - NY Times

WASHINGTON, July 15 On Capitol Hill and on the presidential campaign trail, Democrats are increasingly moving toward a full-throated populist critique of the current economy.

Clearly influenced by some of their most successful candidates in last years Congressional elections, Democrats are talking more and more about the anemic growth in American wages and the negative effects of trade and a globalized economy on American jobs and communities. They deplore what they call a growing gap between the middle class, which is struggling to adjust to a changing job market, and the affluent elites who have prospered in the new economy. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, Democrat of New York, calls it trickle-down economics without the trickle.
