Aired 4/19/09


Class consciousness has always been an uncomfortable reality in a country based on political equality. But it is expressed subtly through dress, geography, possessions and school choice. We'll open the phones to our listeners to find out how they think class divisions are expressed in San Diego.

Guests:

  • Philip Gay (pictured) . Professor of Sociology at San Diego State. He's author of an upcoming book called Conquering College: The meaning of success.
  • Robert Frank . Professor of Economics at Cornell University. He's author of Luxury Fever: Why money fails to satisfy in an era of excess.
