    Since Corporate America with the help of Republicans have reduced Americans economic levels to poor, poor with credit, and rich, I feel the MIT model has some validity.

    Not to worry. Democrats will win in 2020 and within minutes there'll be a world war to allow invocation of martial law, rationing and show trials. They'll fix it. They always have.

    The US has the richest poor people in the world. Real poor people in other countries don't have smart phones, Xboxes, PlayStations and unlike the US there is a real chance they will starve to death.

    Which is the difference between 1st world poor vs. 3rd world poor. Again, poor with credit.

    The only ignorant people are those who believe the results of "simple models" THEIR descriptions. So far those models have a success rate of 0%. Pretty impressive.
