Again, Pearlstein does not explain how investing $1 trillion in infrastructure repair, increasing the wages of people at the bottom of the economic ladder, enabling all Americans to get a good advanced education and providing health care for everyone "would generate disruption and uncertainty that would slow the economy for years." Instead, he refers to an "economist" who expresses a political opinion, not an economic argument.
Pearlstein quotes one of his economist sources to conclude, "'Revolutions in advanced economies are extraordinarily costly ... That's why incremental change is preferred.'"
Isn't "incremental change" the Clinton campaign theme? Go figure.
