What Is a Nation?
Robert B. Reich reflects on the meaning and purpose of nationhood in a world in which economic borders are ceasing to have much significance. He suggests that the emerging global division of labor is driving a wedge between high-skilled professionals and low-skilled workers within the same nation --rewarding the first group with ever higher wages, while reducing the real incomes of the latter. He calls for the better-off citizens to think about what they should be doing to help the less well off.
