From Adam Smith to Duncan Smith
Paul Mason

Excellent essay, Paul. Just to add, I think your historical timeline should be extended back a few decades. Cheap credit & wage stagnation began in America in late 60’s as post-war boom came to an end and then in 1973 after the oil price shock. it wasn’t planned, it just happened and offered a short-term solution to the conditions of the time.
