Middle Class America is rising. The conversations that are taking place on main street will affect everything from government policy to consumer product development. Over the last thirty years, companies have spent billions trying to reach emerging markets around the world. I submit, that the greatest emerging market the world has ever seen will be the one that grows out of a resurgent Middle Class America. The American consumer is the most powerful economic force in the world. As the economy improves for people who have been left behind, new spending patterns will appear, new political constituencies will develop, and a new discussion will take place about American priorities. The conversations that drive this emergence will not originate in the media. They will not originate in Washington. They’ll start in small towns and cities across the country. Government officials and businesses can be part of this reawakening. All they have to do is stop listening to the talking heads and political hacks. The heartland is speaking clearly.
