Elizabeth Warren at UC Berkeley
I found this lecture to contain the whole other--more private--side of what I was trying to explore in Stayin' Alive. While I sought to trace the collapse of the working-class idea in civic life, she gets into the new demands on the family wage economy in subtle and detailed ways. Few changes were more important in the seventies. If I could write a second volume to this book, it would cover the issues Warren explores here. Absolutely worth a view.
