'Corona hastens the decline of the middle class'

In a new episode of the podcast Het Land van Wierd Duk, reporter Wierd Duk pays attention to a remarkable essay by American geographer and publicist Joel Kotkin, which describes and analyzes this development. “We are dealing with a new oligarchy of mainly tech entrepreneurs, who, thanks to their enormous wealth, determine what information we get, what opinions are ‘allowed’ in the debate and, in part, also what political decisions are made,” said Wierd Duk. . “That represents a serious threat to our democracy.”

Further in the podcast: how do you give your life a positive turn in times of corona? And: what is behind the Rijksmuseum’s decision to delete the term ‘bersiap’?
