Motivations to Read

A book that focuses on the shallowing out of the middle class as being part of the reason for the 2008 financial collapse. Working in technology, I firsthand see how jobs are being automated away, so this area has always been on my mind as a big problem waiting to unfold. I am reading this shortly after I've graduated from college, going out into the world, wondering about the future of the economy.
