The phrase “Gilded Age” implies that America at the time looked golden on the outside but was not really made of gold.  You can argue that this was appropriate for the US of the time.  The country in those days was golden with prosperity (most of the time) but had a less golden underside.On the underside, there was, you can argue, too much poverty and abuse of the poorer people.  There were sharecroppers in the South.  There were many many factory workers in the North who were working for low pay in bad conditions.  Meanwhile, the rich were spending extravagantly, making things look golden.
