Jared Bernstein spoke about his book Crunch: Why Do I Feel So Squeezed? (And Other Unsolved Economic Mysteries) in which he outlines several economic pressures faced by a majority of Americans. In the book he said that the economy grew 15% from 2000 to 2006 but contended that wages did not follow this growth and have been unable to mirror the rise in common expenditures. Mr. Bernstein presents his argument while answering economic questions such as “what is an economic bubble?” and "why do economists seem to fear inflation?". He also answered questions from the audience.

Jared Bernstein is the author of All Together Now: Common Sense for a Fair Economy. He is a senior fellow and director of the Living Standards Program at the Economic Policy Institute. close
