Abstract:

Argues that the solution to increasing income inequality in the United States is not to increase taxes on the rich, but to phase out welfare programs and create a culture of achievement.

To save the American Dream we're told that we need to fight inequality through tax hikes, wealth redistribution schemes, and a far higher minimum wage. Watkins and Brook believe that the American Dream is under attack-- but that the real key to making America a freer, fairer, more prosperous nation is to protect and celebrate the pursuit of success. They show that the minimum wage hurts the very people it purports to help, and that middle-class stagnation is a myth.
