The Middle Class Comeback

Women, Millennials and Technology Leading the Way

In a time when the one percenters seem to have it all, author Munir Moon builds a case for the average Joe in his eye-opening new book, The Middle Class Comeback. So take heart and take control of your fears with Moon’s informative–and ultimately inspiring–look at the middle class.

While it is true that the middle class has been consistently squeezed while facing higher costs in health care, housing, education, and taxes, there are many positive developments that spell hope for those making a moderate income.
Moon, a former financial-industry executive and current business owner, uses his years of expertise to paint a portrait of the middle class that is not nearly as grim as the media would have you believe.

With clarity and insight, Moon details the ways in which the middle class is setting itself up for a comeback. This includes the increasingly strong presence of women in society; the rise of technology that will both create high-paying jobs and inspire different ways of approaching basic societal pillars; and the imminent takeover of the millennials, a generation that is poised to tackle our nation’s problems in a whole new way.

The Middle Class Comeback counters the negativity of the dominant narrative surrounding the past, present, and most importantly the future of the American middle class. Despite the doom and gloom making headlines, there are major forces working together: the rising power of women and millennials combined with rapid technological advances will prove that the middle class is ripe for a comeback.

Confessions of an Old Man: How Millennials are Being Robbed is about the process of next generation’s future being stolen right in front of their eyes and what the younger generation can do about it. Baby boomers are leaving members of the MI generation a mountain of national debt to pay down for the rest of their lives, a very expensive higher education system that does not provide a decent return on their money, and an un-affordable an
d inaccessible health-care system. They are left with a planet that is getting warmer and two unwinnable wars primarily financed by money borrowed from foreign countries. If that is not enough, the Beltway has created a political system where politicians are too busy dividing Americans and making them afraid of one another just to win their next election.

Confessions of an Old Man describes the array of challenges young Americans face, brought about by the mix of government duplicity and inaction. It starts by defining the MI generation and characterizing its economic and political power in decades to come. It then provides an analysis of the impact of student loans, national debt, health-care cost, retirement, global warming, and the control of federal government on current American life and on future generations. The book concludes with a challenge and a road map for affecting the desired changes concerning whether the MI generation wants rich old white men to determine its future or take control of its own destiny. The simple fact is that nobody will look out for their interests if its members don’t do so themselves.

The elections of 2018 and 2020 will be the most consequential elections of this generation. By 2020, members of the MI generation will represent the largest and most powerful voting bloc in the United States. Through their votes, they can transform American laws and policies by engaging in the political process and public deliberations. Best of all, this process is free. Their political and economic power will continue to grow as they become a larger segment of society as voters and consumers….More

Munir Moon has a great ability to take complex ideas, concepts and put them in the simplest terms for all to understand easily and in a way that we can relate to, no matter if you are a Millennial, or a Baby Boomer, or a Gen X-er….a well-rounded approach to critical thinking and improving the conditions and can improve lives for future generations.”

I feel like Munir Moon did a wonderful job of getting his message out and doing so in a very digestible manner. I was unaware of so many things discussed in this book, and I consider myself to be fairly well educated and in touch with current affairs….Recommend for readers of economic and political nonfiction.”

The Middle Class Comeback

August 19, 2016 – The middle class is getting crushed. But there is hope. The most common argument about the middle class destruction is the declining or stagnant income, which is true. However, the main culprits are the costs of healthcare, education, and housing that have increased at a much higher rate, making it impossible for an average American family to attain a middle-class lifestyle (see chart below). Furthermore, the tax policies have exacerbated the problem by creating after-tax income and wealth inequality, favoring the non-working income taxed at a lower rate than the working income. Despite the doom and gloom about the middle class making headlines, there are three major forces working together—women, millennials, and technology, which provide hope for the future.
