In our modern world anything can be justified by economic advancement.
If it makes the stock market go up it is good.
Whether we like it or not.
So social safety nets, young people's wages and conditions, worker's rights, standards of education and health are all sacrificed to the ultimate god of economic advancement.
The fact that these economic advantages only benefit the rich seems not to matter.
All regulation is bad, even if it protects public safety.
Taxes should always be cut because the rich hate taxes.
So, despite the fact that the rich corporations pay no taxes, there is no longer enough revenue to supply basic services let alone despised welfare.
How long will people put up with this?
Our governments have betrayed us.
And they lie to us about everything.
