Why is the America middle class disappearing?

George Soros lost nearly $1 billion in the US election and Verizon is destroying its unlimited data plan; Boom Bust’s Lindsay France weighs in. Then, Bianca Facchinei takes a look at why the American middle class is disappearing. Afterward, Lindsay sits down with Jeff Lederer of Ross Companies to talk about housing. 

After the break, Lindsay is joined by RT’s Manuel Rapalo to talk about Peter Thiel’s controversial prediction for Apple. Then, RT’s Ashlee Banks explores Amazon’s claim of creating 100,000 jobs in a two-year span.
