Los nuevos sesentas

Robert Samuelson, en su columna dominical en el Washington Post, encuentra similitudes entre nuestra época y la década de los sesenta.

Aquí un párrafo:
... What frightens people today is that we've experienced setbacks that were so completely unpredicted and unimagined (financial panic, major bank failures, General Motors' bankruptcy, huge budget deficits, collapsed housing values) that they raise dark doubts about our institutions and leaders. The political order seems unequal to the challenges. The stridency of debate reflects fears that one political crowd or the other will yank the country in a disastrous direction.

Aquí el editorial The shadow of the 60's.
