Award-winning author Peter D. Kiernan focuses on America's greatest challenge--and opportunity--restoring the middle class to its full promise and potential. Our educated, skilled, and motivated middle class was the cornerstone of America's postwar economic might, but the country's dynamic core has struggled and changed dramatically through the last three decades. Kiernan's extensively researched story, told through individual histories, shows how the middle class flourished under unique circumstances following World War II and details how our middle class has been rocked and shaped by events abroad as much as at home. Through his storytelling emerges a picture of middle-class decline and opportunity that is fuller and more useful than other examinations in terms of charting a path forward. His unique global perspective is a vital ingredient in charting the way ahead. This new frontier thesis shows that middle-class greatness is again within our grasp. Americans must embrace what brought our middle class to prominence in the first place--our American Mojo--before it is too late and other countries steal the march.--From publisher description

Let's be very clear about this author and this farce of a pile of drivel he calls a book: Kiernan made his money by destroying the middle class while he was with Goldman Sachs, and continues to do so to this very moment! Millions of the so-called new job creation since 2008 went to foreign visa workers [replacement workers] thanks to Kiernan and his filthy kind! ONLY hundreds of thousands of jobs went to Americans, and those seldom were jobs with a future. America offshores jobs, technology and investment to China, and in turn gradually replaces American workers with foreign workers, the official economic colonization program! E.g., BLS states 280,000 jobs created in April, but ONLY 1,000 went to workers born in America, now guess where the 279,000 went to? Over 40% of homes in Seattle priced at and above $400,000 were purchased by mainland Chinese, plus many of the new buildings are financed through EB-5 investment, driving up rental and homes considerably --- ship out the jobs, disemploy and drive up the cost of shelter! Negative 40 stars for pure fictional propaganda from Goldman Sachs!
