Email a Friend

Arianna Huffington discusses the plight of the middle class, why she sees it disappearing, and what it means for America. Her book Third World America: How Our Politicians Are Abandoning the Middle Class and Betraying the American Dream lays out the threats to middle-class stability: shrinking industry and fewer blue-collar jobs, a weakening education system, economic turmoil, and a loss of faith in our political system. She also addresses what can be done to restore and strengthen the middle-class.
