Several annoying aspects of this article.
Clinton stated that only 50% of Trump followers are deplorable (later retracting the "50%" and offered that it is a lower number). From the sort of nice rural or suburban homes with 3-car garages (and 3 cars/pickups, and a "quad" for every family member), that I see Trump signs in front of, I'd say that the 50% figure is about right.
And I recall that even the oil-drilling sinkhole-displaced family featured in Ms. Russel-Hothschild's book was pretty well-off - he was even building a kit airplane in his garage - a $30-40K endeavor at least.
And sorry to say, but there is no "trade policy" that is going to raise wages. If basic non-durable good manufacturing returned to the US - it will only be with enormous pressure to deeply cut wages. That is economics 101.
There is only one way to raise wages - organize a union!
And what the hell is this "American Dream" anyway? All that fills my mind when I hear that term is suburbia, cars, big-screen home theater-surround-sound TV's, wilderness-destroying "quads", and huge pickup trucks to take them to the wilderness with. Also 400 hp "bass boats" and more huge pickups towing them. Oh, and $30,000 gun collections, including assault rifles and plenty of ammo. In other words - the American Dream is just the endless accumulation of material crap obtained through absolutely 100% secure high-paying employment by a some mythical hyper-benevolent capitalist boss who even goes fishing and drinking beer with the guys (and they are all guys) back in the shop.
The American dream specifically does NOT include culture, art, community, solidarity, peace, a clean environment...
