Sure to spark controversy, this book, reminiscent of the bestsellers Politics of Rich and Poor and Day of Reckoning, tells the real truth about America's long term economic decline--what caused it, what it has done to Americans, and what Americans should do about it.
An Emmy Award-winning economics reporter for NBC from 1985 to 1993, Jeffrey Madrick was finance editor of Business Week and a columnist for Money and is now editor of Challenge and a frequent contributor to The New York Review of Books. The End of Affluence was selected by The New York Times Book Review as a Notable Book of the Year.
