Visualizing Wealth Inequality in America

Watch this: I have shown this or something similar before but sometimes repetition helps.  The attached You Tube clip was published on Nov 20, 2012 and although the data has definitely changed it is probably only worse.  While watching this try to remember all of the negative feedback that occurs when anyone even mentions the word “redistribution” on any discussion of inequality.  I suggest that redstribution is covertly taking place all of the time and in only one direction.  The real debate needs to discuss how to change that direction and move us closer to the “ideal distribution” according to most Americans.  After watching this – don’t forget it.
