Description

Boom, bust, boom…? The rapidity of change in America from the exuberant 1960s to the stagflation of the 1970s to the recovery of 1983-84 has been so startling as to confuse the American investor, planner, marketer, developer - and plain citizen.Are the incomes of Americans declining?Is the middle class - and most importantly, the mass middle market-disappearing?Has the United States' standard of living fallen behind other advanced industrial nations?Are we really becoming a nation of low-wage, fast-food attendants?Are America's minorities falling off the income train?What price poverty?Assertion and counter-assertion, claim and counter-claim, arrive faster than understanding. Whether investor or spender, pro-Administration or anti-, a better grasp of the answers is required - Where is America going in the 1980s?In these heavily documented works, the authors present an enormously comprehensive, up-to-date gathering-in of the data. In clear, concise layman's language, they provide an essential foundation for decision makers regardless of their sympathies.
