From ZeroHedge: “Record Income Inequality in One Chart”
“In brief: in the past year, the poorest 23.3 million Americans earned 36% less than the richest 2,915 Americans (and less than twice more than the richest 166). Needless to say, this excludes wealth from capital and asset appreciation, usually a benefit reserved exclusively for the latter; it also excludes the amount of taxes paid by either of these two income extremes.”
The cause of this is completely predictable and was covered by me in February-2013.
A lack of sound money is the problem.
