Fareed Zakaria advocates for more taxes (VAT or sales tax) as well as more government investment. Apparently Europe has been doing things right for so many years so he believes the US should copy that flourishing model. He fails to mention how excessive government spending on military imperialism has impoverished the US economy.
I hope that come 2012 that more candidates will support the platform of the Free Soil party.
