From the Guardian: US income inequality - 'CEOs don't want this released': US study lays bare extreme pay-ratio problem Excerpt: Upper-income taxation (see historical graphic here) was mostly above 90% from 1941 to 1960s. JFK made a BigMistake when he brought it down to 80%. And Reckless Ronnie became a Replicant saint when he brought them all the way down to the 30% range. Which has is the single-most reason why Wealth has skyrocketed for this very select group who are nonetheless just 0.1% of the nation's population. (See that fact demonstrated here where Prof. Domhoff of UofC showed clearly in his Who Rules America web-site accessible from here.) How do you like living in a country where the bottom 80% of the population own only 11% of the nations total Net Worth* - and top 20% of us own the other 89%? Seems fair to you? Not to me ... *Which is essentially all Wealth minus Debt.
