    So you believe if a coal miner from 2 generations of coal miners wins the lottery, that he is suddenly upper middle class?

    Or if a Duke from an unbroken line of 5 centuries were to lose his wealth, he is suddenly working class?

    yes, class is determined by economic position. Social status is something else that people seem to use interchangeably.

    The coal miner who wins the lottery no longer has no rely on wage labour therefore he is not working class.
    The Duke who loses everything presumably has to go back to wage labour, although we'd expect a Duke to be able to use his social status to avoid this. But in this small example without further extrapolation its back to the proles for him.

    We'll have to agree to disagree
