Owning a home was once the hallmark of the middle class American Dream.

There's always a lot of talk about the ‘middle class' during election season. But who exactly is the middle class? Do you consider yourself middle class? Can you afford to buy a house, send your kids to college, and take a vacation every year? We'll explore what the idea of middle class means in Vermont, and to you. Our guests are Elaine McCrate, professor of economics at the University of Vermont, and Marc Dixon, professor of sociology at Dartmouth College.


Also, we'll hear about a new cap and trade program in California that could be good news for landowners in Vermont.
