September 26, 2012 – Hour 1

We’re joined by Donald L. Barlett and James B. Steele, one of the most widely acclaimed investigative reporting teams in American journalism, about their new bestseller, The Betrayal of the American Dream. They have worked together for more than four decades at The Philadelphia Inquirer, Time Magazine, and now at Vanity Fair as contributing editors. We talk about the challenges facing the middle class, the policy decisions that have made it that way, and what needs to happen in the future for the middle class to stay a reality.
