Contents Just the way she planned -- The over-consumption myth -- Mom: the all-purpose safety net -- The myth of the immoral debtor -- Going it alone in a two-income world -- The cement life raft -- The financial fire drill.
Summary Today's two-income family earns 75% more money than its single-income counterpart of a generation ago, but has 25% less discretionary income to cover living costs. Warren and Tyagi reveal how the ferocious bidding war for housing and education has silently engulfed America's suburbs, driving up the cost of keeping families in the middle class. The authors show why the usual remedies-child-support enforcement, subsidized daycare, and higher salaries for women-won't solve the problem.
