Middle Class Losing Ground

Feb 25, 2015

From stagnant wages to rising debt, the gap between America’s middle and upper classes is wider than ever, according to the Pew Research Center. We take another look at income inequality with our panel: Michael Reisch, the Daniel Thursz Distinguished Professor of Social Justice at the University of Maryland School of Social Work; Ken Solow, founding partner of Pinnacle Advisory Group, Inc., the private wealth management firm based in Columbia, Md.; and Barbara Morgan, senior lecturer and undergraduate economics adviser at Johns Hopkins University. Open phones, listener calls.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) recently launched the "Middle Class Prosperity Project."
