THE MIDDLE OUT The Rise of Progressive Economics

by | Read by Adam Barr

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Michael Tomasky's economic ideas are serious and urgent, and they require a narrator with the gravitas to make them heard. Adam Barr answers that call with his confident baritone, which lends authority to the author's words. Tomasky, the progressive editor of THE NEW REPUBLIC, makes a compelling argument that prosperity emanates not from the top down, but from a thriving middle class. He's passionate but restrained, and both of these traits are conveyed by Barr, whose narration is well tempered and even allows the author's subtle humor to peek through. In our polarized culture, this is an audiobook destined to appeal only to those who already share the author's convictions, which is a shame, because it could change some minds.
