"Takes dead aim at the conservative economic consensus that has dominated U.S. politics . . . Biting and necessary."-The American Prospect
In this witty and revealing polemic, journalist Daniel Brook's The Trap argues that the exploding income gap-a product of the conservative ascendance-is systematically dismantling the American dream, as debt-laden, well-educated young people are torn between their passions and the pressure to earn six-figure incomes.
Rising education, housing, and health-care costs have made it virtually impossible for all but the corporate elite to enjoy what were once considered middle-class comforts. Thousands are afflicted with a wrenching choice: take up residence on America's financial and social margins or sell out. From the activist who works to give others a living wage but isn't paid one himself, to the universal health-care advocate who becomes a management consultant for Big Pharma, Brook presents a damning indictment of the economic and political landscape that traps young Americans.
