Summary
Celebrated economic policy maker and political theorist Robert B. Reich argues that the nation's 2008 economic collapse is the result of an increasing concentration of income and wealth at the top--and a middle class that had to go deeply into debt to maintain a decent standard of living. To ensure that prosperity is widely shared, he continues, requires the implementation of a much broader safety net for the middle class financed by higher marginal tax rates on the very wealthy

Summary
Analyzes the economic crisis while making recommendations for responsibly navigating its aftermath, suggesting that the downturn actually resulted from a disproportionate concentration of wealth at the expense of a debt-burdened middle class
