[OPE-L:6763] labor aristocracy and imperialism

In a word search under "labor aristocracy" (exact phrase)
I came up with an unexpected essay by no less an
authority than Paul Krugman  strikingly and unabashedly 
entitled "In praise of cheap labor: bad jobs at bad wages are 
better than no jobs at all":


I guess there are at least some bourgeois economists
then who accept the idea of a labor aristocracy having
a relation to "globalization".  There isn't much
mystification here -- indeed, the class politics are 
strikingly obvious (reminiscent of  the by-gone Reagan 
and Thatcher years).

In solidarity, Jerry
