Dennis Gilbert
Dennis Gilbert

The New York Times printed a letter to the editor written by Professor of Sociology Dennis Gilbert in response to a Jan. 26 article titled “More Fall Out as Middle Class Shrinks Further.”   The letter, published on Jan. 30, was titled “Defining the Middle Class.” Gilbert is the author of The American Class Structure in an Age of Growing Inequality, and often speaks to the media on related topics.

In his letter, Gilbert posited that “’Middle class’ has become a meaningless political term.” He continued with the observation that, “What is clear and incontestable is the growing inequality in this country over the last three decades.”
