Are the American People Obsolete?

Interesting article from Salon - Are the American People Obsolete?. In it the author discusses whether the ruling elites still need the American working and middle classes and speculates on possible outcomes.

I believe that the world economies are going through major structural shifts that will have consequences for social and political institutions, but am not sure what those consequences will be. While I don't think we will end up in a Mad Max scenario, I think the future could look a lot different than any of us may imagine.
