"As the jobs have departed, there is no work to which low interest rates and massive government spending can recall workers. This is the real freefall."

This is a lot like of what I've read at the Distributism website you've linked to. Also, Barry C.

He recently had an article up about it Who Broke America's Jobs Machine? Our "corporatist" economy is only working for fewer and fewer people. Exactly what Adam Smith was criticizing about the British economy in his time in An Inquiry into the Wealth of Nations

Barry Lynn's article is here:
