I keep reading how the economy is getting back on track – housing prices are up, gas prices are down & interest rates remain low – but I’m not sure I’m feeling it, and in the WSJ today there was an article about how much worse off we are now than we were in 2007.
What do you think? Are you better off? Do you have as good a job now as you did then? Is it in your chosen profession?
Another article I read points out something I’ve known all along: Obama is no friend of the working class. That could help explain why under Obama’s watch the economic growth the numbers seem to indicate have mostly accrued to those who were already in positions of money and power. Of course, I don’t think any US President these days merely follows his political ideology, so what’s the real purpose of this weakening of the middle class?
