Combining keen insight with a flair for bringing a human dimension to facts and figures, bestselling author Andrew Hacker shows how the changing economy affects our lives. His clear-eyed analysis of the data illuminates the real results of women's fight for salary parity, the impact of affirmative action on the income of African-Americans, the effect immigration has on the job market, and more.

"A titillating collection of statistical snapshots designed to reveal who makes how much in America and why". -- Clay Chandler, The Washington Post

"Andrew Hacker...uses numbers to enlighten instead of obscure, making sure the statistics come alive by illustrating their inexorable messages with cases involving real people. This wise, creative book is filled with equally fascinating explanations of financial behavior". -- Steve Weinberg, Baltimore Sun

"If you are the ordinarily nosy sort...Hacker indulges your curiosity about how much other people make and how much they have squirreled away". -- Fredric Smoler, Worth
