Do you vote for self-interest or the collective interest?

A message to politicians on how to reach the self-interested voters ... here is a reason to vote to bridge the inequality gap. From USC Sol Price School of Public Policy Prof Dowell Myers
"It bears attention that nearly half of today’s young are children of color who often may be from disadvantaged backgrounds, as are more than a few whites, and without greater access to key childhood resources they cannot grow into their strongest possible contributions. Thus the retirement benefits, house values (the young buy homes from the old), and health of the economy all depend on cultivating the full potential of our future workers and taxpayers-to-be. Greater equity in access to education, health care, housing, and employment is a crucial investment in a greater future for America. We must inspire older white voters to feel these benefits as something crucial to their own self-interest in a successful future."
