Summary
Drawing on the groundbreaking U.S. Financial Diaries project (http://www.usfinancialdiaries.org/), which follows the lives of 235 low- and middle-income families as they navigate through a year, the authors challenge popular assumptions about how Americans earn, spend, borrow, and save-- and they identify the true causes of distress and inequality for many working Americans
Summary
Combining hard facts with the personal stories of 235 low- and middle-income families as they navigate through a year, the authors examine the economic stresses of today's families and offer fresh ideas for solving them
