The Squeezing of the Middle Class

by Chris Sturr | March 04, 2008

Harvard Law School professor Elizabeth Warren discusses the economic pressures confronting the two-income middle-class family as it struggles to pay mortgages, health care, and education costs. Warren offers surprising answers to “Who goes bankrupt and why?” and explores the role of banks and credit card companies in tightening the squeeze on the average American family.

This clip, from University of California TV’s public affairs program “Conversations with History,” is an hour long, but well worth watching.
