At last someone has written a lucid explanation of the American middle class's financial stagnation. Economist Jared Bernstein - chief economic adviser to Vice President Joseph Biden - provides a tremendous service to millions of Americans who wonder why so many two-income households remain financially insecure. Bernstein understands that most economics writing is impenetrable. He explains in lively prose why financial inequality is alive and well in 21st-century America. It's an issue the mainstream media rarely covers. The book is structured around the gimmick of answering American's most common questions about economics, and some of the miniessays don't connect, but getAbstract recommends it to working people who want to know why they are entrenched in the proverbial rat race despite political promises that they are on the verge of financial security - a state, Bernstein emphasizes, that will remain elusive for most Americans.

This is a fabulous, humorous book. Jared's approach allows readers to see things they never really saw before. I highly recommend this book, but I also warn that it may depress many readers. I recommend that in addition to Crunch, readers should look into books that teach them how to compete with the rich at their own game (rather than feeling sorry for themselves).Was this review helpful?
