what's wrong with the economy?27 Dec 2005
EPI has a good summary of what’s wrong with the economy. The bullet-points are:
- Profits are up, but the wages and the incomes of average Americans are down.
- More and more people are deeper and deeper in debt.
- Job creation has not kept up with population growth, and the employment rate has fallen sharply.
- Poverty is on the rise.
- Rising health care costs are eroding families’ already declining income.
