A Tale of Two Economies and the Inequality Dragon

Post by Guest on Sat Aug 27, 2011 10:23 am

There's another reason for the urgency. You can also see in these data the resurgence of income and wealth inequality. There's quite a lag to the inequality data, so no one knows what the trends in income or wealth disparities look like post-2008, e.g. What with high unemployment and weak middle-class earnings, along with solid corporate profits, one assumes that after taking a hit in the downturn, wealth accumulation is "back on track" as it were. That's certainly been the pattern of the last two recessions/recoveries.

The dragon image in that article is hysterical.

George Carlin had this skit on his 2005 album. It's shockingly relevant today, and talks about how the people who own the country want to keep the common man uninformed.
