Concentration Of Wealth

-- by Dave Johnson

Mind Blowing American Wealth Disparity: The Bottom 50% Have Comparatively Nothing

The figures below show the top 10% controlling nearly 70% of wealth. The bottom 50% of US citizens control just a little over 2% of the wealth.
Then click through from there to this slide show of 16 slides about how much of our country's wealth has concentrated into just a few hands since Reagan.

50% of us together control just over 2% of all of the wealth in this country. A few at the very top control almost all of the country's wealth. They are at the top of the food chain and we are the food.
