Mr. Phillips' most recent book, The Politics of Rich and Poor: Wealth and the American Electorate in the Reagan Aftermath, was the topic of his talk. He was the first to coin the term “sunbelt” and predicted the coming of the current conservative era. He said the enormous concentration of wealth that developed in the 1980s within one percent of the population will provide a watershed change in American politics.
