About this book
This wholly original new work by the best-selling author of "The Great Unraveling" challenges America to reclaim the values that made it great. With this major new volume, Paul Krugman, "the heir apparent to Galbraith" (Alan Blinder) and, todays most widely read economist, studies the past eighty years of American history, from the reforms that tamed the harsh inequality of the Gilded Age to the unraveling of that achievement and the reemergence of immense economic and political inequality since the 1970s.

Seeking to understand both what happened to middle-class America and what it will take to achieve a "new New Deal," Krugman has created his finest book to date, a work that weaves together a nuanced account of three generations of history with sharp political, social, and economic analysis. This book, written with Krugman's trademark ability to explain complex issues simply, will transform the debate about American social policy in much the same way as did John Kenneth Galbraiths deeply influential book, "The Affluent Society."
