We have it in our power to begin the world again. So said American patriot Tom Paine, who, like the other Founders, saw this country as a unique opportunity to build a society that values the well-being of the majority over the interests of the few. Over the past few decades, we've lost sight of Paine's vision. Our government has adopted a YOYO (you're-on-your-own) response to even the most pressing problems -- diminished job security, increasingly poor health coverage, stagnant incomes, decaying public schools, and more. "Here's a tax cut and a private account," they tell us, "now go fend for yourself." It hasn't worked. The YOYO strategy has proven incapable of addressing the economic challenges that confront us. It's a failed approach that favors the wealthy few while eroding living standards and increasing insecurity for the rest of us. All Together Now details an alternative WITT (we're-in-this-together) strategy for solving our most daunting problems, showing how the challenges we face can be solved through a practical and collaborative response that does not increase national spending. Together, we can wield the tools of government to build a more just and equitable society

Pulling apart : a state-by-state analysis of income trends by Jared Bernstein( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines trends in income distribution from the late 1970s to the late 1990s in the 50 states. It is based on before-tax income for families from the Census Bureau's March Current Population Survey public use files. All figures are expressed in 1997 dollars and adjusted for inflation. The paper examines the long term trend from the late 1970s to the late 1990s; the recent trend from the late 1980s to the late 1990s; and causes and cures (state policy options). It finds that in most states, the gap between the highest-income families and middle-class and poor families has grown substantially. It also finds that even the economic expansion of the past several years has not altered the long-term trend. Rather, an analysis of changes in income inequality since the late 1980s shows that in two-thirds of states, the gap between high-income and low-income families continued growing over the past decade. Moreover, the gap between high-income and middle class families increased since the late 1980s in about three-quarters of the states. Reasons for the rising inequality include growth in wage inequality, increases in the number of families headed by single persons, and government policies. (Sm)
How much is enough? : basic family budgets for working families by Jared Bernstein( Book )

The state of working America, 1994-95 by Lawrence R Mishel( )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Numerous sources of data about family incomes, taxes, wages, unemployment, wealth, and poverty were used to analyze the impact of the economy on living standards in the United States in 1994-1995. It was discovered that most individuals in the United States are worse off in the 1990s than they were at the end of the 1970s. Between 1979 and 1989, family income grew more slowly than in any other business cycle since World War ii. Despite recent progressive changes in tax laws, the federal tax system has continued to favor wealthy families. Most people are working longer for less. Underemployment is worsening, and the continued rise of part-time and temporary employment has triggered long-term erosion in economic security, benefits, wages, and opportunities for training and advancement. Rapid increases in the value of financial assets coupled with stagnation of the value of tangible assets has further increased the gap between the upper and middle classes. Poverty rates have remained high and unresponsive to economic expansion, and health care expenditures have continued to increase without any concomitant increase in health outcomes. Among developed countries, the United States is falling behind in productivity and wage growth. (Contains 303 taables/figures and 160 references.) (Mn)
Crime and work : what we can learn from the low-wage labor market by Jared Bernstein( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Greater labor market opportunities result in lower crime rates, a clear link that is often ignored in policy debates on crime reduction. This study examines the labor market characteristics of the offender/ex-offender population and the labor market conditions these potential workers face. It identifies ex-offenders as a distinctly disadvantaged subset of the low-wage workforce: they have little education, weak job histories, and weak labor market attachment, plus the additional penalty of a criminal record. Even at a time when the overall economy is growing, workers in this sector face higher levels of un- and underemployment. This monograph argues fuller employment for ex-inmates will need innovative labor market solutions, including increases in the minimum wage, more education and training, and the expansion of work supports such as the Earned Income Tax Credit

The state of working America, 1992-93 by Lawrence R Mishel( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using a wide variety of data on family incomes, taxes, wages, unemployment, wealth, and poverty, this book closely examines the impact of the economy on the living standards of the United States. An executive summary gives an overview of the economic realities that characterize the state of the working nation. Other introductory materials include an introduction to the material and information on the presentation and methodology. Chapter 1 examines changes in income level in recent years relative to other periods since 1947 and the growth of inequality and its causes. It shows that pretax incomes of most families have stagnated, whereas incomes of wealthy families have grown significantly. Chapter 2 focuses on changes in the level and distribution of taxes to examine the extent to which the tax system has exacerbated or ameliorated the slow and unequal income growth of the 1980s. The third and fourth chapters examine the labor market trends (wages and employment) that are at the heart of the growth in inequality and the sluggish income growth. Chapters 5 and 6 broaden the income analysis by examining trends in wealth and poverty. Chapter 7 examines income trends by geographic location (region/states, urban/rural). Chapter 8 shows how Americans are losing access to education, housing, health care, and child care. Chapter 9 compares trends in the U.S. to those in other advanced countries. Appendixes include table notes, figure notes, background information on analysis of wage data from the Current Population Survey, and a 136-item bibliography. (YLB)

Crunch : if the economy's doing so well, why do I feel so squeezed? (and other unsolved economic mysteries) by Jared Bernstein( Book )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economics isn't as mysterious or arcane as some economists make it seem. And Jared Bernstein is not one of "those" economists. In Crunch he strips away the confusing jargon and gives straight answers about topics everyone wonders about: Social Security, immigration, globalization, homelessness, job security, and more. But ultimately economics is a matter of making choices, not right and wrong answers. Bernstein shows how we can choose answers to our economic questions that will lead to the kind of society we all want: one that is fair and equitable as well as efficient
