Jeff Faux of the Economic Policy Institute argues Americans are in denial. Everyone knows, he says, but no one faces up to the fact that the United States can no longer afford to have subsidized unregulated markets, be the world’s global power and provide a steadily rising standard of living.

Despite public posturing to the contrary, it’s America’s middle class that will be sacrificed on this current path.
