Is America coming apart?
introduced by Tito Boeri
Even before the arrival of COVID, American lives (and deaths) were dividing, with an educated elite doing well and the majority doing badly. Covid is increasing these pre-existing inequalities and creating new ones everywhere, especially so in in the US. The failure in the management of the pandemics is a byproduct not only of the lack of competence of the Trump administration, but also of the lack of a coherent national strategy in a federal system, where each local authority behaves autonomously causing inequalities and risks for citizens.
