I don't believe so. The Middle-Class' primary enemy has always been the wealthy. Right now, however, the wealthy enjoy an advantage based on commoditization. As Charles Hugh-Smith explains:
Commoditization makes all inputs interchangeable. Global labor has been commoditized because it no longer matters which workers assemble the goods, global capital has been commoditized because it no longer matters where the capital comes from, and globally produced goods, services and resources have been commoditized because it no longer matters where they come from or who produces them.Meaning that the premiums earned on a product that might have once been shared with producers now go to shareholders.
