The Sum of Small Things: A Theory of the Aspirational Class

Book review by Deane Barker
Elizabeth Currid-Halkett

Vaguely interesting book about how people spend their money on “luxury” items in order to publicly denote a certain level of social class. Lots of figures, graphs, etc. Not 100% of the point that it was trying to get at, honestly.

This is item #346 in a sequence of 602 items.
