Let's get together and talk about the middle class, both here in the U. S. and abroad. We've been hearing for years that the middle class in the U. S. is withering, and I'd like to do a presentation showing that it's not, but I haven't found anything that supports that contention! What is happening to the middle class in other countries, like China, India, and Nigeria? Is the American middle class failing to adapt to globalization, thereby endangering the future of the U.S.?
Show up and debate!
Please bring snacks to share.
We will watch these videos, or videos like them:
middle class in Soweto

technical – shows that what you think has been happening, actually has been happening. Details on what has been happening to middle class wages in the last 30 years. Very dry.
