It's the Middle Class, Stupid!

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


It’s the Middle Class, Stupid! confirms what we have all suspected: Washington and Wall Street have really screwed things up for the average American. Work has been devalued. Education costs are out of sight. Effort and ambition have never been so scantily rewarded. Political guru James Carville and pollster extraordinaire Stan Greenberg argue that our political parties must admit their failures and the electorate must reclaim its voice, because taking on the wealthy and the privileged is not class warfare—it is a matter of survival. Told in the alternating voices of these two top political strategists, It’s the Middle Class, Stupid! provides eye-opening and provocative arguments on where our government—including the White House—has gone wrong, and what voters can do about it. 
Controversial and outspoken, authoritative and shrewd, It’s the Middle Class, Stupid! is destined to make waves during the 2012 presidential campaign, and will set the agenda for legislative battles and political dust-ups during the next administration.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 16, 2012 – Veteran Democratic campaigners and pollsters Carville (All's Fair: Love, War, and Running for the President) and Greenberg offer a plea to save America's floundering middle class. The duo paints a grim portrait of the status of the middle class, which one person described as "what makes America America." The widening chasm between the wages of the top 1% and everyone else has destabilized the middle class, for whom savings have been increasingly replaced by debt. The authors outline a grim cycle of "institutionalize inequality," declining wages, reduced benefits, and skyrocketing higher education prices, all of which that are blocking middle class children from top educations and, later on, career benefits. The authors target a politically-literate, liberal readership, and make no bones about their left-leaning politics. Greenberg and Carville are at their best when analyzing data and proposing detailed solutions, including massive campaign finance and health care reform, increased taxes on the top earners, and investment in infrastructure, research, science and education. Although the authors' heated and occasionally rambling rhetoric might be a turn-off to some, their central premise is vital and their proposals well-considered. Illus.
