I keep reading in the Jordanian press that the Jordanian middle class is shrinking. I’ve been reading this for 10 years and I have my own opinions about this. A few days ago, the above cartoon by Amjad Awartani was published in Ad-Dustour daily. It illustrates that in Jordan we have a small rich class, a big poor class and a dead (not even shrinking) middle class.
I would really like to know your opinion about this? Is this cartoon a true depiction of the situation in Jordan. What has your own (and your family’s) financial situation been like over the past few years? What about the people around you? Your close and distant friends and relatives?
Do you consider yourself middle class. rich or poor? And why?
How do you see your financial future?
I think this matter is worth discussing and exploring. Of course data and studies are important but so are matters of ‘perception’..
What do you think?
