Affluent society

Jump to navigationJump to search

An account of American society that emphasizes the apparent wealth and material fascination and wellbeing of a large segment of the population, namely the middle-classes and above. What this conception often overlooks is that this affluence is possible only to the extent that the American working-class remains essentially in its nineteenth century position and the extent to which some others remain "un-affluent."
