The Real Story Behind "Rising" U.S. Income Inequality

Discussion in 'Politics & Religion' started by tomdavis, Sep 22, 2012.

  1. Why is income inequality rising for U.S. families and households, but not for individual Americans?

    Having now shown that there has been absolutely no significant change in the level of inequality among U.S. individual income earners from 1994 through 2010, we thought we'd take a step back and look at the data for U.S. families and for households to examine those trends over time....

    Ricter's head will probably explode when he see this.
    His whole being revolves around his perception of inequality.

  4. You can try, but the data says that's not possible.:D

    I like the cut of your jib!! Let's hear it for inequality. If everybody was a winner everybody would be mediocre, sounds like a recipe for, well... uhh.... mediocrity at best.

    Isn't that the definition of communism? Mediocrity for all! Nothing to live for and nothing to die for. FORWARD, FORWARD, FORWARD.
