So it is Reagan’s fault people make the choice to overspend and end up in bankruptcy? That seems like nonsense.
I am also struggling to accept that our opportunities for upward mobility have decreased since Reagan. If anything, the advent of the internet has provided people one of the greatest tools for self education mankind has ever known, and that alone provides the means for upward mobility that is unprecedented.
The issues facing the middle class of America have far more to do with globalization that any policies from the Reagan era.
