The Sum of Small Things
- A Theory of the Aspirational Class
- By: Elizabeth Currid-Halkett
- Narrated by: Rachel Dulude
- Length: 8 hrs and 35 mins
The leisure class has been replaced by a new elite. Highly educated and defined by cultural capital rather than income bracket, these individuals earnestly buy organic, carry NPR tote bags, and breast-feed their babies. They care about discreet, inconspicuous consumption. In The Sum of Small Things, Elizabeth Currid-Halkett dubs this segment of society "the aspirational class" and discusses how, through deft decisions about education, health, parenting, and retirement, the aspirational class deepens the ever-wider class divide.
