The front page of The Economist, November 5th-11th 2001 announces “The Missing Middle; The woeful gap in America’s Politics, is one among many indications of a major issue, not only in the United States, but globally. This book constitutes an attempt to offer alternatives that could fill this gap. The credibility gap appears in various guises: politically there is no serious public debate concerning global and national issues. Attempts at filling the gap of credibility are equally “magical” in the sense that the rhetoric used offers “prayers” to reestablish the middle class, provide jobs and correct the economy. Indeed, the use of such rhetoric is deemed above the constitution, and the latter should become subservient to a higher authority. (Imprint: Nova)
