    But I have a problem with the argument that the past forty years in wealth disparity is a cause rather than a symptom of the three of the four crises you outline (that political influence positively tracks with wealth is self-evident).  A larger share of college graduates are moving on to so-called "unproductive" pursuits, but the overall numbe in "productive" categories increases.  There are more clinicians, pharmacists, and engineers than ever before; there's no shortage of talent to blame here.
