The Shift in Risk

by  Jared Bernstein 

In an interview posted on the weblog Daily Kos, EPI economist Jared Bernstein discusses how Americans are ensnared in a “You’re-On-Your-Own” economy that has transferred the burden of economic risk onto individuals and their families.

Jared Bernstein is Director of the Living Standards program at the Economic Policy Institute in Washington, D.C.
