Generally accepted false narrative

On his blog, economist Mark Perry, rather easily debunks a narrative about the ‘shrinking middle class.”

The middle class has shrunk!…because the higher income households has increased. That’s a good thing.

Yet, Perry shows a case in an exhibit at the Building Museum in Washington D.C. where the opposite is implied.

The sad thing about false narratives is that they take attention from real problems.
