#1 bestselling author Jeff Rubin is truly one of our most important thinkers. THE EXPENDABLES: How the Middle Class Got Screwed By Globalization is not only prescient and relevant but essential as we continue to witness devastating inequalities. It is a provocative, far-reaching account of how the middle class got stuck with the bill for globalization, and how the blowback – from Brexit to Trump to populist Europe to COVID-19 – will change the developed world. Real wages in North America have not risen since the 1970s. Union membership has collapsed. Full-time employment is beginning to look like a quaint idea from the distant past. If it seems that the middle class is in retreat around the developed world, it is.
