SCREWED The Undeclared War Against the Middle Class--and What We Can Do About It

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Anthony Heald

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Starting with Ronald Reagan and accelerating under George W. Bush, American policy makers have waged an assault on the middle class, the very foundation of American democracy, as seen by the Founding Fathers. Hartmann's book chronicles this assault and suggests actions people can take to end it. Anthony Heald is perfect as the narrator. His voice is steady as he discusses economic theory, delivering key concepts clearly and often slowing his pace so listeners can absorb the points. But he lets the emotion in his tone rise as he reads about inequities. When the author points out obvious irrationalities, Heald adopts a tone of incredulity. It could have resulted in caricature, but Heald adopts just the right level, which nicely fits the material. R.C.G.
