Description
 
Extensively expanded and revised, with a new foreword by Thomas Frank

In the United States, happiness and wealth are often regarded as synonymous.
Consumerism, greed, and the insatiable desire for more are American obsessions.
In the native tradition of Twain, Veblen, and Mencken, the editor of Lapham's
Quarterly here examines our fascination with the ubiquitous green goddess.

Focusing on the wealthy sybarites of New York City, whom Lewis H. Lapham has
been able to observe firsthand in their natural habitat, Money and Class in
America is a caustic, and often hilarious, portrait of a segment of the American
population who, in the thirty years since the book was originally written, have
become only further removed―both in terms of wealth and social
awareness―from everyone else.
