That does not make such a conversation about class any less vital.
Just what America needs, a discussion of class along Marxist lines.
This also looks a little odd:
One in 10 of those with mortgages is in negative equity; one in 16 is behind on their payments.
Anyone know if those figures are true? Sounds like remarkably high figures to me. I might believe it of certain bubble States (Florida, California), but of the country as a whole?
