About "A Classification of American Wealth"

"A Classification of American Wealth" is an online book being presently written by D. C. Shouter (pseudonym) who has been studying the subject of wealth accumulation and society in America for many years. This web site is the first and main medium for the works' publication. The organization as a web site also allows the gathering and sharing of bibliographical information and relevant links, as well as the possibility to exchange information on an interactive basis (forum discussion, etc). These features will gradually be included in the web site. Existing pages and chapters will also be updated from time to time as the author gains more insight into the subject. 

The index on the homepage is a rough guideline of the chapters to be included in the work. There may be additional chapters and different sub-chapters and titles. The index will be updated with links to the active chapters, as they appear online. Each chapter has an introduction, which also includes an index of pages and active links to these pages. The pictures on the right side contain links to the active chapters. The sitemap gives the most accurate insight into the present content of the website.

Encyclopedia of American Wealth is a dynamic module using a database to display wealth classification lists as well as profiles for individuals and families. As with the text parts of A Classification of American Wealth, Encyclopedia of American Wealth is continuously being extended and updated.
