Every year I see an article like this one in the WSJ, where the argument goes: "the world is so much better now than it was before--so don't believe all the negativity in the headlines." I know this is hogwash, living in a country where half the people are poor and a world with increasing austerity. Would love to hear Dr. Wolff 's economic take on this: https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-enlightenment-is-working-1518191343
Is the so called "enlightenment" really working, like the WSJ would have us believe?
Do you like this suggestion?
