David Madland - Hollowed Out: Why the Economy Doesn't Work Without a Strong Middle Class

Friday, July 24, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

If it once seemed that a thriving upper class was indicative of a healthy economy overall, it no longer does. Rather, Madland shows, the key to economic health is middle class prosperity. In his analysis of disparity in the wake of the financial crisis, Madland, managing director for economic policy at the Center for American Progress, looks in detail at the myth of trickle-down economics.

Madland will be in conversation with Michael Tomasky, editor in chief of Democracy and special correspondent for Newsweek/The Daily Beast.
