quien ha dormido al raso agradece una manta

 Hay algo idiota en lo que nos sucede. Que la socialdemocracia imagine alternativas como esta dicen bien poco de algunos de sus representantes. En ese artículo uno de los antiguos ministros de Tony Blair reclama todo el capitalismo posible pero siempre que se mantenga la fe las cosas buenas y justas que sólo el Estado puede garantizar. Cosas que el neoliberalismo habría olvidado. Y los párrafos idiotas viene al final:
In the new global economy, which is awash with cheap labor, Western economies will not be able to compete in a “race to the bottom,” with firms seeking ever-cheaper labor, land, and capital, and governments seeking to attract them by deregulating and shrinking social benefits.
The only way Western economies will be able to compete and improve their standard of living is by seeing themselves as being involved in a race to the top. That is, firms must improve their value added through innovation in existing industries, and by developing the capability to compete in new and more sophisticated industries, where value added is generally higher.
