From a US site:

1. The bloated, sluggish and unfulfilled feeling that results from efforts to keep up with the Joneses. 2. An epidemic of stress, overwork, waste and indebtedness caused by dogged pursuit of the American Dream. 3. An unsustainable addiction to economic growth.

New book out in the UK Allfuenza by Oliver James.

Affluenza: n. a contagious middle class virus causing depression, anxiety, addiction and ennui. (Oliver James, 2007)

Looks like a good read...
