Qüestió de classes

Durant aquest maig-juny, el New York Times publica una sèrie d’artí­cles sobre les classes socials als Estats Units.

Sobre la sèrie.
Un equip d’investigadors ha estat, durant un any, explorant les diferents maneres que la classe – definida com una combinació de nivells de renda, educació, salut i ocupació – infuencia el destí­ de les persones en una societat que es veu a ella mateixa com una terra d’oportunitats il·limitades.
