Think Progress has the article Decades Ago, Robert Kennedy Explained Something That Trump Still Doesn’t Know About The Economy.

You could include Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama among the people who don’t know this. I wonder if either Obama has forgotten what was in this speech, or if he didn’t understand the meaning of it when he heard the words. In Elizabeth Warren’s presentation about income inequality after the plenary session of the Massachusetts Democratic State Convention she used an understanding of these facts to motivate the rest of the talk.
