Has anyone got ahold of Kevin Phillip's new book Wealth and Democracy? Phillips is a very perceptive, and renown nonfictional writer. Interestingly, he characterizes us as living in the "Second Guilded Age." We are starting to re-visit the kinds of wealth and poverty divisions, and political and social disenfrancisement of poor and middle class people characteristic of the original Guilded Age, i.e., that the of the Titanic. I've said elsewhere on this site that the relevance of Titanic's story is more than in the tragic sinking of a ship --- it lies in the fact we are re-visiting that epoch each day with our lives in the 21st century. I look forward to acquiring and reading this book.
