The American Middle Class: An Economic Encyclopedia of Progress and Poverty [2 volumes]

Author(s): Rycroft, Robert;
Contributors: Rycroft, Robert; Rycroft, Robert;
Abstract:

What is the "American Dream"? This book's author argues that contrary to what many believe, it is not achieving the wealth necessary to enter the top one percent but rather becoming members of the great middle class by dint of hard work and self-discipline.


• Includes content related to all the themes of the National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies and the Common Core requirements for primary documents and critical thinking exercises

• Focuses on the intersections of middle class society to current issues of interest and policy debates, including diversity, gender, taxation, race, minimum wage, unions, student loan interest rates, school closings, and labor issues

• Documents the perspectives of the major economists of each era on the middle class
