This is the long version of our program on the Middle Class, first aired November 15th of 2011. As I mentioned in the introduction, my first thought as I prepared this topic was, 'What's left of it!' Over the years of my life, I've seen the rise and now disintegration of the middle class. This discussion between the generations goes into depth on the impact having a strong middle class had on our culture and economy and also the impact we are now seeing as the middle class is stressed. My guests were author Stuart Blumin, from UALR Mark Funk and from American Progress.ORG Heather Boushey.
