I just got back from presenting this text and these figures at a this Senate forum on inequality, mobility, and middle-class prosperity and the lack thereof, with a heavy emphasis on policy. The project is the brainchild of Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Congressman Elijah Cummings, and I strongly recommend listening to what they had to say, along with that of my fellow panelists.
Looking forward to seeing where they take this project. They’re deeply engaged in the issues and I thought Rep. Cummings remarks at the end in response the question “why bother?” were resonant. And you would be awfully hard pressed to find someone speaking with more authority and passion on the need to reconnect growth and prosperity than Sen. Warren.
