“I believe our Nation is the most American country The United States has ever known. And that’s because of people standing-up with other people, who are standing-up to a third group of people. Let’s do more of that.”
Stephen Colbert (The Colbert Report, thursday, March 10th, 2011)
It seems like the middle class is just simply disappearing…right before our eyes. Right Now.
Many people are doing worse, economically, than their parents did. Many people also think that their kids will have an even tougher-time, economically, than they are right now.
Here’s the numbers.
As of 2011:
The upper 1% own 33% of the total wealth in the United States. 1% the population has 1/3 of all of the cashola in the good ‘ol US of A.
The next 9% share 34% of the total wealth.
That means that the upper-10% owns 75% of the total wealth in the U.S.
The bottom 90% of the country shares just 25% of the nation’s total wealth.
I’m no commie. But this is just wrong.
You could also think about it like this. If there were only a 100 people in the country. And the nations total private wealth was 100.00 dollars.
One dude would have $33.00.
The next top-nine would have $4.67 each (on average).
The bottom NINETY (90) people would have only $0.28 each (on average).
