This video has gone viral, and deservedly so. Take a look, if you haven't seen it already:
Sorry, if I were less technologically challenged I'd have posted the video itself. Perhaps one of my colleagues will read this and put the video up in a separate post.
In five minutes or so, this video explains all you need to know about wealth inequality in America, with one exception. It doesn't show how much worse things will be if we don't change course from current policies.
But it shows in stark terms how much wealth we've shoved into the top one percent, an important datum in our great experiment, how much wealth and how much income can we jam into the top one percent before the bottom ninety percent explodes. It will also show why I leave out the 9% in the middle when describing that experiment.
