About the author

Munir Moon

<p>Munir Moon is a former financial industry executive, a successful small business owner and an author of three books. Moon spent eight years in the financial industry, starting at Chase Econometrics and ending at a savings and loan association during the 1980s. He was a firsthand observer of the financial crisis in the 1980s, which resulted in the demise of the savings and loan industry, to be repeated in 2008 in a different form. Having a son born with cancer who survived numerous surgeries, he has experienced the best and worst of American healthcare system. As a businessman, he appreciates the impact of over-regulations, taxes and globalization.</p> <p>The recent book, <em>Confessions of an Old Man: How Millennials are Being Robbed </em>is a call to action for the MI generation (defined as those born between 1980 and 2018)&mdash;a generation with the most to lose if the United States continues with its current domestic and foreign policies. Baby boomers have much to answer for: a legacy of economic instability, poor job growth, and an environmental disregard. This book is a statement of collective guilt that places the responsibility on the author&#39;s generation for dealing a bad card to its children.</p> <p>The first book, <em>The Beltway Beast: Stealing from Future Generations and Destroying the Middle Class</em>, was published in 2014. It transcends the anger and frustration of the American people caused by their leaders&rsquo; failure to solve the country&rsquo;s problems. The book included warnings about cyber security and domestic terrorism by nationalist groups as the most serious economic and national security threats to the United States.</p> <p><em>The Middle Class Comeback: Women, Millennials, and Technology Leading the Way</em>, counters the negativity of the dominant narrative surrounding the past, the present, and most importantly, the future of the American middle class. It presents a hopeful blueprint for its revival, with women, millennials, and technology being major factors, while addressing the transformation of ever-rising health-care and education costs and taxes that adversely impact the middle class.</p> <p>Moon earned his BS in engineering, MS in economics, and MBA in finance from UCLA. He is married with three sons and lives in Los Angeles County, California.</p>
