The U.S. Democratic Party has experienced the rise of Bernie Sanders, though it remains relatively united.How to respond to the very real concern that the free movement of capital, goods, services and people has not benefited the average American worker?For example, Alden and Strauss note that the U.S. government spends a pittance on job retraining and related measures: 0.1 percent of GDP, compared with 0.8 percent in Germany and a staggering 2.3 percent in Denmark. America spends a lot on education, but inefficiently and mostly for already wealthy and well-prepared children. Infrastructure is bad and public transportation worse, so workers cannot move easily to new jobs. These kinds of investments would allow American workers to share in the prosperity of the general economy.The smart politics of the future will prioritize being "open and armed," willing to compete in a global economy and equipped with a bristling armory of tools and training. The countries of Scandinavia are more open than America and much better armed.
