Tucker Carlson is perhaps my favorite person on any news channel. One of the reasons is because we think in similar ways. He is a big picture person. He looks beyond the news sound bites of today and looks long term. (He also illustrates absurdity with absurdity which I love.)
Recently he has been examining the long-term impact on our country of current policies related to families.
Women Participation in the Work Force
This short video segment is an excellent overview of why the excitement over low unemployment and high women participation in the workforce does nothing to encourage me.
This is related to the point I made in a post on my other site: How Many Gen Xers are Making $100k a Year? The numbers that get shared in the media are deceptive because they only show a small part of the picture.
Tucker Carlson gets it and he cites Elizabeth Warren who clearly made the point in her 2003 book The Two-Income Trap: Why Middle Class Parents Are (Still) Going Broke. (This link is the revised edition.)
