  •  "The economy" is a problematic descriptor (0+ / 0-)
    as it is generally discussed in pop media. The typically used metrics allow one to hypothesize with equanimity the liquidation of the "middle class"--another problematic concept. I'd be curious to see more detailed occupational breakdowns. I bet a whole lot of the more prosperous in our society at this historic point are in "financial services" and related occupations. They rely fairly directly for their livelihoods on money making money. So their worldviews would often skew conservative, i.e. anti-labor, anti-poor, anti-public sector regulation and spending.
