The Leanard Lopate Show: Betrayal of the American Dream
Americans face a big choice in this fall’s election, but two investigative journalists argue that the result may not change much for America’s middle class. Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters Donald L. Bartlett and James B. Steele have written a book they call “The Betrayal of the American Dream.” They argue that the U.S. government is committed to free trade and indifferent about companies outsourcing jobs. Donald Bartlett says that’s even true of widely-admired companies like Apple.
