“The people who are the engine of the economy.”
I’m not much of a car guy, but the way I understand this metaphor to work is that if you want to give rich people credit for being “the engine of the economy” then if the economy is performing subpar it follows that something’s wrong with your engine. And yet I suspect Zambrelli wouldn’t take kindly to that diagnosis.
If something good happens, praise me. If something bad happens, blame yourself. And if you disagree you’re a Marxist from Kenya.
