I believe that Fitzgerald was not implying much of anything about Americans, but rather stating what he saw as facts about them.  His fundamental belief that the 1920s was a time period of intense frivolity and sensationalism where parties, social life, and the trappings of wealth prevented anything real and substantive from developing forms the essence of his depiction of “the Jazz Age.”  At a time where mass consumerism and intense desire to become socially mobile and achieve the pitch of economic prosperity and conformity, Fitzgerald used different social and class based situations to reflect the idea that the entire time frame, and American Culture, in general, was predicated upon the idea of individuals building a great monument that towers over all, but one whose foundation was a firmament of sand.  When the tide comes in, there is little to prevent the inevitable crumble which would be to follow.
