Hardworking and law-abiding Americans can no longer expect to reach the upper rungs of the social ladder. Over the past two decades a strong minority has even tumbled down due to financial duress. Focussing on some personal stories he has extensively researched, G. Packed goes to show how irrational exuberance on Wall Street has wreaked havoc among the middle class and left even the well-heeled wondering what has happened to the American dream. I am partial to this variety of HISTORICAL journalism that combines fascinating short stories borrowed from real life with hard facts/statistics and a broader view of recent events. A must-read. If you don't want to be the next victim, that is.
