Is Hawaii’s middle class disappearing?
Radio Australia
In our regular look at Hawaiian affairs, we ask the question: is the Hawaii middle class vanishing?

Russell Roberts‘s insight:

Fascinating view from our friends "down under."  The middle class is not only having a rough time in Hawaii, but also facing difficult problems on the U.S. mainland.  Soon, the country will have two distinct socio-economic classes–the top tier rich and the rest of us.  Aloha, Russ.
