Rich, Poor, Middle Class

This concept of dividing society into three groups based on economic income comes from Ricardo. Tripartite model of society. It is interesting to know the origin of this concept especially after Marx uses it in such a wide way. It is pervasive as a framework for studying many communitites with one standard but it seems deeply unsatisfying. Who is the poor, rich or middle class, how do they conceptualize themselves, do they think of themselves in this way, does it matter? From: Zublatt: how did Europe Democratize
