This is an interesting editorial in today’s Guardian and worth checking out!

The C-word: politicians and capitalism | Editorial | Comment is free | The Guardian.

I particularly identified with the following sentence in the last paragraph:

Let’s also be clear: inequality has taken off as an issue because workers have seen their pay effectively cut and their jobs threatened, thanks to a wrong-headed austerity programme

It’s only January but I predict that “austerity” will be a major news story for the whole of 2012, or until politicians come to their senses. I am hopeful that voters in the US, France and Germany will bring common sense to bear, as well!
