"Jared Bernstein is to most economic writers what Red Bull is to decaf latte. In All Together Now he makes such a rousing case for mutual responsibility and shared risk that you'll leap out of your chair and into action. Everyone in the sub-billionaire class needs to read this book and send a gift copy to his or her elected officials." Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed and Bait and Switch
"What does our national debate about economics most need? It needs ideas. It needs strong voices for justice who understand economics. And it needs economists with a passion for social decency. Jared Bernstein is a passionate economist who provides hard data to describe the world as it is, and ideas to make the world more just. All Together Now should be read and debated by all who know that the status quo is failing us and seek a daring and bracing examination of the reasons for our discontent." E. J. Dionne, syndicated columnist, author of Why Americans Hate Politics and Stand Up Fight Back, professor at Georgetown University
"This vitally important and readable book couldnt have arrived at a better time. Jared Bernstein examines the ever-increasing gap between our so-called booming economy and the waning economic security of the very people creating that growth. With common sense and common decency, Bernstein shows where weve gone off course and how to find our way back." Robert B. Reich, Professor of Public Policy, University of California at Berkeley, and former U.S. Secretary of Labor
