I heard a lot about economy recently, the 1% privileged pointing fingers at the 99% middle and poor, the 99% accuses 1% foul play.
A warning sign of social friction.
Economic performance has a lot to do with social structure and the degree of rationalization of the structure.
A economy can do fine like oil rich countries as long as it can offset the negatives of irrational social structure with luck or sacrifice of the citizens.
But a great economy must go with a great social structure. The degree of rationalization will determine the performance of economy.
