Wealth inequality in the USA

This is not news; according to the YouTube counter, I am 6,286,429-th person to view this video clip.  But that still does not reduce its power.

Are the rich getting richer?  Well, in both the United States of America and here in Australia they sure are.  When only 1% of the population (in the USA) controls some 40% of the wealth, you know that things are starting to go far wrong.  This video infographic (released on YouTube on November 20, 2012) – yes, already seen by millions – is a great example of it, pointing out that most Americans want a relatively equal distribution of wealth, but that their predictions of the unequal system are not even close to how unequal the distribution really is.

Watch it.
