America's once robust middle class is in trouble, suffering under tremendous financial and emotional pressure. What went wrong? In Upward Dreams, Downward Mobility economist Frederick Strobel traces the rise of the economic middle class from the New Deal through the 1960s, critiques its decline over the last two decades, accelerated by the misguided policies of Reaganomics, and outlines a program to restore a strong and vibrant middle class.
