Lisa Servon

  • More and more of us ... belong to the new middle class, a group that lives in a state of perpetual financial uncertainty. An overwhelming sense of financial insecurity tears at the very fabric of society. When people feel safe, they take productive risks — they invest in the future, they encourage their children to go to college and graduate school, they start businesses. ... Our culture no longer supports this kind of risk taking.

  • In order to make financial health a reality for all Americans, we need to ensure that anyone who works hard for forty hours each week can earn enough to support a family. We need to provide everyone with the opportunity to work and a strong safety net that will help people manage when work doesn't work.

Lisa Servon, U.S. writer, academic, researcher
