Thurs, 1-3:30 pm, University Center Rm. 204. Historically, the American promise was about opportunity for all. There were big differences in wealth, but Abe Lincoln's Log Cabin myth held more than a little truth. What's more, American society has been marked by dominance of a large, stable middle class which has set the tone for cultural and political values. However, over the past 40 years a set of changes in society and the economy and government policy have worked together to a) shrink the middle class b) weaken the lower-middle and lower class, and c) set the upper-middle and upper classes off into a separate realm. What's worse is the divisions may be permanent. Join Phil Mikesell as he highlights how America may be moving away from a land of equal opportunity and toward a system of stratification based on 'inherited meritocracy.'

Thurs, 1-3:30 pm, University Center Rm. 204. Historically, the American promise was about opportunity for all. There were big differences in wealth, but Abe Lincoln's Log Cabin myth held more than a little truth. What's more, American society has been marked by dominance of a large, stable middle class which has set the tone for cultural and political values. However, over the past 40 years a set of changes in society and the economy and government policy have worked together to a) shrink the middle class b) weaken the lower-middle and lower class, and c) set the upper-middle and upper classes off into a separate realm. What's worse is the divisions may be permanent. Join Phil Mikesell as he highlights how America may be moving away from a land of equal opportunity and toward a system of stratification based on 'inherited meritocracy.'
