Interesting thanks! Do you think the erosion of the middle class is inherent to capitalism?

I believe capitalism like any other form of social/political structure is in and of itself neither good or bad, but is a tool. I think that it has been a manipulation of this tool that has destroyed the middle class.

Playing devils advocate to myself, however; I cannot help but wonder if the addition work force with the added need of consumption to support the new demand for employment plays more then a significant role.

Yeah very interesting.. It always shocks me how much health care/ insurance in the US blows.

Thanks for the video, she speaks truth. I didn’t realize how *many* people were going through bankruptcy, though I knew of 2 families that were close to me who went through it.

@taylorreese Of course its biased, (whose perspective isn’t?) and myself coming from a minority perspective can pick at a ton in this lecture that I consider to be of her own inclinations, (no take in account for opportunity in education and the decline of quality education) but what I really found interesting were her figures from her research thus far. So I’m questioning what you find incorrect… The numbers she came up with for the increased fixed expenditures of the middle class? (ie healthcare etc)
