One thought on “Naming Public Issues: Economic Concerns Illustrated”

  1. Thank you for your blog, I have enjoyed keeping up with is since joining the foundation.

    It seems to me like something that runs through all five concerns is fairness or a sense of justice. The wealthy make “too” much, the gap is “unfair,” more people don’t have what they need. Based on the concerns you have outlined, I think what is at issue is that the economy is unfair.

    However, I’m unsure wealthy people would agree it is unfair or even that they make too much. When I think about what might concern the wealthy, I think about aspects of the economy, such as recessions, that could result in the sudden loss of wealth. To put it in the context of what they hold deeply valuable, what is at issue for the wealthy is that the economy is out of control.

    What do you think?
