Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I would say that the wealthy have a disproportionate influence, rather than outright setting social preferences. But along those lines, what we've seen over the past decade is a shift away from the desirability of suburban life and towards that of urban neighbourhoods among the well off. The problem is that there simply isn't enough housing available for those who want to live in such areas, forcing middle class families to live in the suburbs whether they want to or not.
