In The Middle Out, journalist Michael Tomasky narrates this history and reports on the work of today’s progressive economists, who are using mountains of historical evidence to contradict neoliberal claims. Their research reveals conservative dogma to be unfounded and shows how concentrated wealth has been built on the exploitation of women, minorities, and the politically powerless. Middle-out economics, in contrast, is the belief that prosperity comes from a thriving middle class, and therefore government plays a role in supporting families and communities. This version of capitalism–more just, more equal, and in which prosperity is shared–could be the American future.

Michael Tomasky is a prominent voice on the left – he was just named top editor of The New Republic and also edits the influential journal Democracy, which The New York Times has called “the little magazine that incubated team Biden.” He will be available for media appearances this fall and I hope you will consider his incisive and essential new book for significant coverage in September.
