Fiscal policy is indeed more promising if the challenges of rising debt are addressed. Events in the past year, most notably the shooting by police of the unarmed father-of-six Eric Garner in New York and the Ferguson riots in response to the shooting of the black teenager Michael Brown, have highlighted the continuing, racially-charged urban inequality that plagues US cities. The enormous American territory and the freedom that people had to move and work across it—guilds were nonexistent in the new country—also encouraged an advanced division of labor, which is essential to high productivity, as Adam Smith argued in The Wealth of Nations.
