Radical recalibration is required. And I do mean radical

From the Observer’s editorial this morning:

An awareness is growing across the political spectrum, and on both sides of the Atlantic, that a radical recalibration of capitalism is essential, not least because the wealthiest and least productive are in danger of allowing their own avarice to sabotage the very system on which they have become so hideously bloated.

Some of us have worked hard to create that awareness.

I really do hope that it is growing, and fast enough. The alternatives are to unpalatable to want to consider. But that’s why radical is also the right word. Tinkering is not enough.
