What's next

National GDP has made regular progress, and incomes rose ... but only for the wealthy.  The economic middle class is in decline and the poor are trapped.

Folks who work for an average income have made continuing advances in productivity but not in wages.  Their employers are doing well. Stockholders are doing well. Corporate profits are doing well. Working folks haven't seen much improvement, however, since the changes that began in the late 70's.  Today, 21% of our children live in destructive poverty.

Do your own inquiry.  For a starting point, you might look at The GAP, or Poverty is a Weapon of Mass Destructionor perhaps The century's deadliest idea.
