Hillary Clinton will embrace the Democratic Party's focus on shared prosperity for all Americans in a major speech on Monday laying out policies at the core of her second White House bid, arguing that the top economic priority for the next president must be to boost middle class wages.

Also on the to-do list are tighter rules on Wall Street, tax reform, more support for women and families, and a higher minimum wage, the front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination will say during the first economic policy speech of her campaign. Clinton is scheduled to speak at the The New School, a university in New York City's Greenwich Village neighborhood known for encouraging progressive thought on economic and foreign policy.
