McGhee's specialty is the American economy. In her personal journey across the country, McGhee shows how public goods in this country—from parks and pools to functioning schools—have become private luxuries; of how unions collapsed, wages stagnated, and inequality increased; and of how this country, unique among the world’s advanced economies, has thwarted universal healthcare.  Register today!  Need assistance with purchasing an e-book or hard copy of the book?
