The fourth edition of the Life in the Valley Economy series reports that widening income inequality endangers the middle class and in a consumer-based economy, a weaker middle class threatens the economy as a whole. The report's Solutions section calls for policy changes such as a higher minimum wage, full implementation of national health reform and other public-sector measure to remedy the situation.
