The creation of a middle class in China and India is where future consumers will
come from. From people who, in many cases, are already here or are one
generation away. This will put enormous pressure on the planets' resources,
which have largely been relatively easily and cheaply available to the American
middle class up to this point. Essentially, we're going to have a lot more
people pulling up to gas pumps, whether we can see them or not. That's why
the mantra of always calling for an increase in population here to solve our
problems is foolish. The population is already here, inasmuch as there are a lot
of people on earth. And, they're catching up economically. It's going
to be quite a ride.
For me, talking about a class level is pointless.All the classifications
these days.How about just being happy, and loving.Money. The very
demise of this world we live in.
If our world had honest leadership:* no poverty or starvation* everyone prosperous, at least at the upper middle class* no wars* higher educational level as a whole
