Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The unstated "... and income instability" need not be noticed if its not the incomes of the PTB that are unstable. If, indeed, they are either steady or rising, from windfall gains on resource ownership that tends to be concentrated at the top end of the income ladder, that would be good income instability, so long as the hoi polloi don't start a civil war or some such inconvenience.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
