Description
Samuel, a financial consultant for Fortune 500 companies and major advertising agencies who conducted a study of the American wealthy for J.P. Morgan in 2000 and 2005, examines the American wealth culture from the 1920s to the present. He discusses the rise in the number of millionaires in the US, the demise of "old money," and the effects of modernity and youth culture in the 1920s, the Great Depression, the rise of the middle and upper-middle classes in the postwar years, the countercultural, multicultural, and feminist movements of the 1960s and 1970s, and the emergence of "new money" through the celebration of wealth in the 1980s and the tech boom of the 1990s and 2000s. He also considers attitudes towards the rich, the gap between the rich and the poor, taxes, the related desire for political power, how-to-get-rich movements, and whether the rich are happier than others.
