Aftershock: The Next Economy and America's Future - Robert B. Reich Excellent read about America's future!

"But we did not learn the larger lesson of the 1930's: that when the distribution of income gets too far out of whack, the economy needs to be reorganized so the broad middle class has enough buying power to rejuvenate the economy over the longer term." "Until we take this lesson to heart, we will be living with the Great Recession's after-shock of high unemployment and low wages, and an increasingly angry middle class."

He writes about the fact that the economy is mostly financial now and large donations from Wall Street makes it difficult for politicians to bite the hand that feeds them.

"To be sure, prolonged economic stress could open the door to demagogues who prey on public anxieties in order to gain power."

The author offers up a lot of practical solutions that I feel would certainly help!
