The new world of conflict - "Friction is now between global financial elite and the rest of us"

How can the new polarization between the 'haves' and the 'have-nots' be explained?

In the USA pre-election debates, Bernie Sanders attracts thousands, even though he is a socialist.

And for the Republicans, Donald Trump is a towering presence. He is the well-known billionaire. USA politics has become an entertainment world of its own.

England's debate about economics is becoming shrill, too, with socialism being proposed by the leftist members of Parliament.

What is happening? Why this world-wide passion about economics?
Why does the expression, 'We are the 99%?' have to do with the noisy gap between rich and poor?

How much of this writer's thoughts do you agree with in this article?
