        How the Deck Is Stacked: Why the Middle Class Matters

        Learn how the percentage of Americans who belong to the middle class is shrinking and why this matters to the U.S. economy, in this video from FRONTLINE’s “How the Deck Is Stacked,” produced in collaboration with Marketplace and PBS NewsHour. Marketplace host Kai Ryssdal presents statistics that support the idea that far fewer people today than in 1971 are defined as middle class; this not only impacts whether and how individuals spend their money but also overall economic growth in the country. This resource is part of the FRONTLINE Collection.
