Jennifer Wheary, Thomas M. Shapiro, Caleb Gibson, and Julia Isaacs, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institute, discussed "By a Thread", a new study that measures economic stability in America's middle class, at a Capitol Hill briefing. Released by Demos and the Institute for Assets and Social Policy (IASP) at Brandeis University, the study uses a new measurement, the Middle-Class Security Index, to examine the financial security of the middle class using five factors: education, assets, housing, budget and healthcare. The vulnerability highlighted by the study was thoroughly discussed, as well as a recommended set of policies to help strengthen America's middle class. Domestic Intern Hye Jin Rho was in attendance.
