This morning, Takeaway listeners and Facebook followers told stories about what it means to be part of America's middle class and how that's changing. Now, we're looking at the middle class outside America. John Hockenberry wrote a blog post about the connection to Europe's working class and how it evolved over here. But what is the emerging middle class like in countries such as India and China? As this group grows rapidly in these countries, what problems are they facing?

And we're asking you: If you've been to China or India recently — or you're from there — what is your sense of the middle class there? How does it compare to America's?
