A recent report by the US Census Bureau concludes that Americans are seeing no significant growth in their income or relief from the threat of poverty. That persistent stagnation must be addressed by President Barack Obama and the candidates who want to succeed him.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist’s book “provides a readable and comprehensive account of how Americans have been robbed of our dream of a broad middle class over the past 40 years,” said Jay Lorsch of Harvard Business School in a news release.
