With a timely new foreword by Robert Frank, this groundbreaking book explores the very meaning of happiness and prosperity in America today. Although middle-income families don't earn much more than they did several decades ago, they are buying bigger cars, houses, and appliances.
To pay for them, they spend more than they earn and carry record levels of debt. Robert Frank explains how increased concentrations of income and wealth at the top of the economic pyramid have set off "expenditure cascades" that raise the cost of achieving many basic goals for the middle class. Writing in lively prose for a general audience, Frank employs up-to-date economic data and examples drawn from everyday life to shed light on reigning models of consumer behavior.

From Our Blog. About the Author Robert H. Reviews "This is an excellent book, written in an easy, understandable manner, alive with important examples of how our society spends its money and who are the winners and losers.
If you have not read a previous Frank book, now is the time. Bob Frank is persistent. He's beginning to convince me. Schelling, author of The Strategy of Conflict "The arguments here are powerful and multidisciplinary. The crux is explaining how rising economic inequality causes harm to the middle class. It also offers a policy reform—a progressive consumption tax—that serves to mitigate this harm.
This is a gem of a book. Friedman, Professor of Public Policy, University of California at Berkeley "In this lively provocative book filled with memorable new examples, Bob Frank goes beyond his previous work Luxury Fever, Winner-Take-All Society, and Choosing the Right Pond and clarifies that 'falling behind' is a consequence not of envy but rather of the simple fact that a person's evaluation of his own possessions 'depends always and everywhere on context'—an unconscious comparison with his neighbor's possessions or with his own previous possessions.
His illuminating interchange with prominent discussants is a unique contribution of this book. You may even have read them. Nevertheless, if you pay even passing attention to the big economic policy questions, you should still read his latest contribution, Falling Behind.
In this century, distributional concerns will top the policy agenda. This masterful essay will change how you think about them. Robert Frank's ideas in Falling Behind meet this test. In this short, lucid set of essays he explains exactly how and why an unequal society leaves almost all its members worse-off, including most of those who objectively are doing 'better. He sketches a theory of human economic nature and links it responsibly to the rickety choices of policy-makers who have no such theory or, worse, a truly faulty one.
This is not mainly because he mischievously highlights the blind spots of his learned profession, but because his insights reveal fundamental, unnoticed, and yet very important truths about the society in which we live. As inequality has grown in America over the last three decades, Frank shows in this fluent and powerful little book, we have all been led by human nature to act in ways that are bad for virtually everyone.
Frank's ideas should play an important and innovative role in the gathering debate about inequality in America. Putnam, Harvard University. Related Books.

In recent years, innovative texts in mathematics, science, foreign languages, and other fields have achieved dramatic pedagogical gains by abandoning the traditional encyclopedic approach in favor of attempting to teach a short list of core principles in depth. Two well-respected writers and researchers, Bob Frank and Ben Bernanke, have shown that the less-is-more approach affords similar gains in introductory economics. Avoiding excessive reliance on formal mathematical derivations, it presents concepts intuitively through examples drawn from familiar contexts.
From August 5, , until June 21, , he was a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System , proposed the Bernanke Doctrine , and first discussed " the Great Moderation " — the theory that traditional business cycles have declined in volatility in recent decades through structural changes that have occurred in the international economy, particularly increases in the economic stability of developing nations, diminishing the influence of macroeconomic monetary and fiscal policy. Bernanke then served as chairman of President George W. Bernanke wrote about his time as chairman of the Federal Reserve in his book, The Courage to Act , in which he revealed that the world's economy came close to collapse in and
Я с вами попрощался, мисс Милкен, - холодно сказал Фонтейн. - Я вас ни в чем не виню. - Но, сэр… - заикаясь выдавила. - Я… я протестую. Я думаю… - Вы протестуете? - переспросил директор и поставил на стол чашечку с кофе. - Я протестую. Против вашего присутствия в моем кабинете.
Могу я поинтересоваться, кто со мной говорит. - А-а… Зигмунд Шмидт, - с трудом нашелся Беккер. - Кто вам дал наш номер.
Если он сумеет реализовать свой замысел, это стократно компенсирует провал Попрыгунчика. Фонтейн пришел к выводу, что Стратмор в полном порядке, что он трудится на сто десять процентов, все так же хитер, умен и в высшей степени лоялен, впрочем - как. Лучшее, что мог сделать директор, - не мешать ему работать и наблюдать за тем, как коммандер творит свое чудо. Стратмор разработал план… и план этот Фонтейн не имел ни малейшего намерения срывать.
В течение двух часов Беккер переводил бесконечный поток китайских иероглифов. Но каждый раз, когда он предлагал перевод, дешифровщики в отчаянии качали головами. Очевидно, получалась бессмыслица.
