Ginger looks at three trends that she thinks are signs of the thinning of the middle class. I have to say that I agree with her on all three, especially the point about the way sales of luxury items are increasing. I think this is something that will continue over the next four years, and likely beyond, leaving us with an America that will be more and more divided by class, as the rich get richer and many of those now in the middle class sink down into the ranks of the poor. Apparently the rich have forgotten that the middle class is there to keep the poor from rising against them.
