Worlds apart: Mike Lofgren on the ‘revolt of the rich’

Mike Lofgren’s recent article on The American Conservative caught my attention.

It is essentially about the different worlds that people inhabit; a contrast made by comparing the ‘super rich’ to the ‘everyman’.

The article can be found here. I am no expert on American politics, and my interest in this piece is on its motivating idea that we can parse out the political economy of different worlds based on what people can afford and how they interact with the systems of which they are a part.
