My mother said this 4 DECADES ago that in the 21st century, there is going to be either the


exceedingly wealthy or the extreme poor with a small middle class. Do YOU agree with this premise? Why? Why not?

    What you've said is true.To me,middle class is defined as living comfortably & no excessive worrying about bills while being poor means constantly worrying about even providing the basic rudiments,being a 1/2 step away from homelessness.
