The Betrayal of the American Dream: exerpt in Philly Inquirer
"Part 1 of 4
The Betrayal of the American Dream is the story of how a small number of people in power have deliberately put in place policies that have enriched themselves while cutting the ground out from underneath America’s greatest asset — its middle class.
Their actions, going back more than three decades, have relegated untold numbers of American men and women to the economic scrap heap — to lives of reduced earnings, chronic job insecurity, and a retirement with fewer and fewer benefits. Millions have lost their jobs. Others have lost their homes. Nearly all face an uncertain future."
I read this excerpt this morning. These two guys are what investigative journalists are supposed to be. They wrote an earlier book "America, What Went Wrong". Which was great. About the 1980's economic disaster, which was a prelude for the collapse in 2008.
