Is this because we have changed as a society or…

someone changed the definition of middle class to skew the real underlying figures?

Ivan: Economic growth is causing the reduction in poverty. The defintion of middle class has stayed pretty consistent over the last few decades.

Having said that, the OECD definition of middle class is around $2000 in annual purchasing power parity income. Pretty low relative to developed world definitions of middle class.
