On today’s Your Call, we'll have a conversation with veteran journalists Donald Barlett and James Steele, authors of The Betrayal of the American Dream. They argue that since the 1980s, the ruling elite, with the help of Republican and Democratic politicians, have sold their business-friendly reforms to the American people in the name of economic efficiency. Instead, the middle class has been systematically impoverished. Join us  at 10am PST or post your comment here. What will it take to achieve equity and prosperity for everyone?
