“It Is Time to Begin the Process of Rebuilding Our Middle-Class Economy”

David Bly, We All Do Better - Tue, 08/23/2016 - 6:04pm

A couple of weeks ago I sent Bill Moyers a copy of my book, We All Do Better and he actually read it and sent me a brief email saying he liked it very much and would like to promote it on his website. After a few back and forth emails and exchanges with my publisher today he published a blog piece on his website under the title you see above. The blog piece contains some excerpts from my book and offers it as an example of what the states might do to address the ravages of inequality. Here’s the link if you would like to read it: It is time to begin rebuilding our middle class economy

You can get a copy of my book by using this link: We All Do Better

I hope it inspires you to get involved in rebuilding our middle class economy.

– David Bly
