US Will Return To Historic Levels Of Inequality Says One Economist
Here in the Puget Sound region and across the country, the economy is making slow and steady progress in recovering from the Great Recession of 2008. But moving forward many questions still remain. A crucial one involves the growing inequality gap. Economist Tyler Cowen says the US will return to historic levels of inequality and in turn, we'll see a thinning out of the middle class.
His latest book is called “Average Is Over: Powering America Beyond The Age Of The Great Stagnation.” Cowen talked with Marcie Sillman.
