Longtime observer of the American economy Wallace C. Peterson here offers a wake-up call.

The year 1973 marked a turning point, as Peterson makes clear in this carefully documented book. When several key economic indicators changed course, the "silent depression set in, resulting in problems for the shrinking middle class, the poor, and the American family." Peterson calls for strong medicine and closes with proposals for health care, education, and the tax system that will help speed the economy's recovery.

From the Back Cover:

'This highly relevant, truly important book reveals the stagnation of American economic life--the meager performance, the high unemployment, the increasing inequality. It supports its argument and its cogent recommendations with a compelling deployment of fact.' -John Kenneth Galbraith

About the Author:

Wallace C. Peterson, an economist and award-winning journalist, lives in Lincoln, Nebraska.
