Summary
Mooney, a journalist, discusses why today's educated professional middle class is dealing with worse financial issues than previous generations, in struggles with student loans and credit card debt, high housing and healthcare costs, and decisions on whether to fund retirement or their child's education. She draws from her own experiences and those she interviewed and offers ideas for dealing with economic changes that include improving government-supported education, health, and child care programs, and changing the definition of self-worth.
