I don’t mean to pick on Kevin Drum, whom I’ve read for more than a decade, and whom I really like a great deal. But it seems to me that the alleged “good guys” — the liberal, cosmopolitan class of which I myself am a part — have fallen into habits of ridiculing, demonizing, writing off, or, in our best moments, merely patronizing huge swathes of the polities to which we belong. They may do the same to us, but we are not toddlers, that is no excuse. In the United States, in Europe, we are allowing ourselves to disintegrate and arguing about who is to blame. Let’s all be better than that.
It’s very human to hate those one has most injured. Hence, credentialed liberals and the working class.

So what does it all mean for you? How Brexit will affect your holiday money, mortgages, passports and health cover Daily Mail. This paragraph caught my eye:
There is no obvious reason why UK government debt should become a bigger risk — after all, unlike eurozone countries, our Government could, if the worst came to the worst, print money in order to redeem its bonds.
The MMT paradigmatic claim that no government sovereign in its own currency can go bankrupt has infiltrated the Daily Mail. It’s been quite a year.
