What's Happening to the Middle Class?

The economic reports indicate an economy on the move, yet the middle class appears to be in trouble: stagnant wages and job promotion opportunities, high education costs, student debt, increased taxes, and a general sense of struggle and confusion. How have trade, tariff, and other policies contributed to the decline of the middle class? What went wrong? What are the solutions? Manhattan Institute’s Nicole Gelinas and Rutgers University economist Tom Prusa will help us understand the challenges facing America’s middle class and what the future holds. Peter Coy, editor of Bloomberg Businessweek will serve as moderator followed by a public Q & A. Bring your questions.

Moderator: Peter Coy
