According to the article, the gap between the rich and poor is officially almost worse than ever, surpassing even the 1920's, but without the wonderful fashion and architecture.
It goes on to talk about the recession of 2007."The Great Recession of 2007-2009 saw the richest being hardest hit with 36 percent of income loss, while incomes for the remaining 99 percent of the population it only diminished by 11 percent." Of course, the 1% bounced back quickly, while the rest of us not so much. But comparing income loss between the two seems an odd statement when you consider that 36 percent of a bajillion dollars is still rich as fuck. But an 11% drop in poverty wages = grocery money.
Mostly I wanted to point out the photo.
