Polarization

[ #16875 ]
Dear Log,

«It is a sad irony: America's creative economy sparked a demographic shift and a political polarization that now threaten to choke that economy off. What America desperately needs now is political leadership savvy enough to bridge that gap. To his credit, President Bush has made the Republican Party much more immigrant-friendly. But his talk about diversity seems almost entirely pitched to win the working-class Hispanic vote; he seems uninterested, to say the least, in changing other policies that are driving away the high-end immigrants and generally undermining the creative economy.»

Hm. In this dualism of creative vs. non-creative subeconomies, I wonder where the rapidly engeezering Baby Boom fits.
