    That “They have winners” as if life did not have winners is disappointing, because life has plenty of winners, mostly:

    * In the “east”, a large minority of very poor workers who have found jobs in sweatshops created by offshoring, as those sweatshops still pay much better than being subsistence farmhands; also a smaller but still significant minority of middle class workers who supervise sweatshop workers or provide white-collar services to their employers.

    * In “the west” a large minority of people who bought real estate and shares in the 1990s, or who worked or work in finance. Real estate and share prices have been doubling every 7-10 years for over 30 years.

    The latter category is large enough to give regular victory to hard-right thatcherite/reaganista parties.
