Our real problem, he argues, lies in the increasing concentration of income at the top, robbing the vast middle class of the purchasing power it needs to keep the economy going. This thoughtful and detailed account of the American economy--and how we can fix it--is a practical, humane, and much-needed blueprint for rebuilding our society.
