Chat with us: How to Save the Middle Class

May 21, 2012
The decline of the middle class is a serious and persistent threat to the American economy - on this, the evidence is convincing. We need to arrest that slide. But how? 

That's the subject of a live chat here at the Roundtable at noon on Tuesday, May 22. I'll be joined by two top-notch economists: Heather Boushey of the liberal Center for American Progress, co-author of a new report on why the middle class matters so much for growth, and Kevin Hassett of the conservative American Enterprise Institute (and an adviser to Gov. Mitt Romney's presidential campaign) who made a big splash with a recent op-ed column he co-wrote in the New York Times decrying the "human disaster" of unemployment.

Kevin and Heather will field your questions about what's happened to the middle class and how policymakers can begin to set things right. Please join us and join the conversation.
