The Lost Decade of the Middle Class

Written by

(0 votes)

Since 2000, the middle class has shrunk in size, fallen backward in income and wealth and shed some -- but by no means all -- of its characteristic faith in the future. Our new report, released Aug. 22, 2012, explores how middle-class Americans view themselves, as well as their outlook on the future and on the presidential candidates who are courting their votes.

To read the full report, go to http://www.pewsocialtrends.org/middle...
