The "Crisis" of the Middle Class Episode
Play • 29 min
Has the "American Dream" died? If the "dream" is one of a confident expectation of increasing affluence across generations, then perhaps it has. While politicians in both parties talk about a crisis of the "middle class", young people in America now find it harder to get on the property ladder, to go to College, and even to make ends meet week by week, without falling into a debt trap. Adam talks to Devin Fergus, author of "Land of the Fee," and  Jacob Hacker, co-author of  Winner-Take-All Politics: How Washington Made the Rich Richer and Turned Its Back on the Middle Class.
