Chis Christie Is Big Enough to Bury a More Important Issue

That more important issue is income inequality and its offspring, poverty. Last week, Rolling Stone published contributor Jesse A. Myerson's article on the subject, "Five Economic Reforms Millennials Should Be Fighting For."

It, coincidentally, echoes my earlier post also recommending a guaranteed minimum income. My basket of reforms is different from Myerson's, but I like his guaranteed job idea very much.

Also loved Brian Beutler's article in Salon about the right's freakout over Jesse Myerson's Full-On Communism. Très amusant.

Finally, WonkBlog's Dylan Matthews crafts a beautiful rendition of Jesse's ideas as core conservative values. Funny. Tragic. No, just funny. Well, the policy failure is what's tragic.

Slate's David Weigel puts the churning debate in perspective. Good stuff.

I'm glad the conversation goes on. Let's do something!
