America's middle class enjoyed a boom period from the 1940s through the 1970s, until the political and economic environment started to shift and a divide between the "haves" and "have-nots" began to widen. Journalist Hedrick Smith has spent decades reporting on the changes, large and small, that contributed to the decline of the middle class. He talks with Kojo about where we are today and what it will take to bridge the nation's class divide.
