The Great Risk Shift

The New Economic Insecurity and the Decline of the American Dream

Jacob S. Hacker

  • Lays bare America's unsettling new economic climate, showing how it has come about, what it is doing to our families, and how we can fight back
  • Documents how two great pillars of economic security - the family and the workplace - guarantee far less financial stability than they once did
  • Offers a blend of powerful human stories, big-picture analysis, and compelling ideas for reform
  • Serves as a rallying point in the vital struggle for economic security in an increasingly uncertain world
