Editorial Reviews

Choice
Few names are as well known on the important subject of U.S. income distribution as that of Frank Levy, who with coauthor Michel makes the data come alive in an important work that will serve as a useful reference for some time....A must for any comprehensive library.
Industrial and Labor Relations Review
...provides a thorough overview of family income and wealth trends that will enlighten anyone seeking a nontechnical discussion of topics relating to economic inequality.
The Collective Voice
A brilliant analysis of how Americans have accumulated wealth. A timely book that explains the growing disparity between rich and poor and what policy-makers can do to close the gap.
— Robert F. Black, U.S. News and World Report
The New York Times
...a lucid, compact analysis of the way families fared in the turbulent economy of the 1970s and 1980s. But [the authors'] boldest and most original work is an educated guess about the way today's younger families will manage the next few decades.
