As someone who grew up at the end of Soviet era and studied it in college, reading Jesse Myerson’s Rolling Stone piece about the “five economic reforms Millennials should be fighting for” set off an alarm.

President Barack Obama has won re-election in spite of the dismal economy.
Obama becomes the first incumbent President to win re-election with the unemployment rate over 7.5 percent since Franklin Roosevelt did it in 1940.
