Susan Orlean on Defining Class

I think it's so much more about profession and aspiration:  Do you aspire to have a big house in the suburbs?  It's not a question of whether you have one or can afford one.  I think you can sort people out according to their goals, not whether they have the means to achieve them.  That, to me, is a more interesting way of looking at class -- rather than income.

From an interview with writer Susan Orlean by Manjula Martin in Scratch.
