Economic Mobility: America's Frontier Blocked?

The "great recession" may be over, but that doesn't mean that most Americans have access to the opportunities that they used to. Host Michel Martin hears from listeners about how the lack of social and physical mobility is limiting their economic prospects. She discusses the issue with Richard Reeves, a fellow of economic studies at the Brookings Institution.
