This is an interesting article in the NYT and well worth a read. Check it out!

via Multiplying the Old Divisions of Class in Britain – NYTimes.com.

Personally, I am old fashioned and still think that class is fundamentally about two variables:

  • Wealth/income
  • Social connections

What do you think?

  2. It is about wealth which can be old or new money, where you went to university and your social connections and whether or not you are a member of a secret society and at what level(secret connections).

    It is also about income versus assets and ability to get more money on favorable terms plus the quality of your business connections as opposed to your social ones.

    What remains the same as it always has done for hundreds of years is the continuing situation whereby advancement, preferment, position, who you marry or live with has practically nothing to do with true ability, work or effort which is why as a country we are being deliberately managed into decline and ultimate 3rd world status by an elite controlling politicians who care only for their own agenda.

    This new survey into class differences does not look at a whole group of people in the internet economy and it does not look at people who make large amounts of money in one month and less in another.It also does not look at those who are domiciled for tax purposes offshore and under report income whilst appearing not to fit any of the 7 new categories.It is as usual incomplete and wrong which means that marketers relying on it for targeting will be disappointed.
