Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: A bold and graphic rendering of declining living standards and growing inequalities in a book-and-poster format. Striking and informative, The Prosperity Gap uses the immediate impact of a poster format to illustrate the "whys" behind the decline in living standards experienced by the typical American family. It shows that the usual culprits blamed for households' financial ills -- taxes, big government, inflation, U.S. wages that cannot compete, and poorly trained workers -- have little if anything to do with today's problem. The real source is the insistence of big business on short-term profits, which in turn leads to falling wages and a decline in job stability. Precise, concise, and readable, this poster and sixty-four-page booklet, with more than fifty charts and graphs, bring together data on income, wealth, race, and marital and occupational status to provide a lively and accessible picture of the decline in American economic growth along with essential prescriptions for change.
