Cheri Honkala’s been homeless, unemployed and – like 44 million of her countrymen – doesn’t have health care. She’s one of the workers left behind by the globalised economy. Yet Cheri is an American citizen. In this edition of Life, Cheri tells the story of what’s happened to workers in her hometown, Philadelphia, and warns that America’s economic boom could yet prove a disturbing model for the rest of the world. With contributions from Robert Reich, Lester Thurow, Juan Somavia, Naomi Klein and Francis Fukuyama.
