The Washington PostLong before most reporters and social scientists took note, Smith had established himself as television journalism's foremost expert on the forces eroding the ranks of the middle class. In a series of penetrating Frontline documentaries over more than a decade, he chronicled the rise of a new buccaneer brand of global capitalism that relentlessly undermined the middle-class dream of "a steady job with decent pay and health benefits, rising living standards, a home of your own, secure retirement, and the hope that your children would enjoy a better future." Now in a sober, self-described reporter's book, Smith deepens his analysis using the latest data.
