[1]Globalism is a recent phenomenon which, mostly because of its deteriortive affects on the American middle class, has become a steady topic of conversation.

However, in Europe especially France and the United Kingdom, the term “middle class” takes on increasing complexity. Issues such as “aspiration, virtues and attitudes” come into play.” CLICK HERE TO READ FULL POST[2]
