Federal Reserve Survey Shows Wealth Inequality Increasing

Yet more evidence there is no “recovery” for most Americans.

Yes, a relative handful of people own more than half of all the wealth in the country.

Does this mean that thanks to the ravages of the financial crisis and the findings of professor Piketty we are going to see pitiful, former billionaires huddling on America’s sidewalks anytime soon?

I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for it.

1%er Warns Fellow Plutocrats Neoliberalism Will Lead to Violent Class Revolution

By: Friday June 27, 2014 12:21 pm

Though Charles and David Koch may be grabbing the headlines promoting a 1% neo-feudal agenda, not everyone in the upper echelons of the American plutocracy is on board. Nick Hanauer, a super rich venture capitalist, recently wrote a piece condemning neoliberalism – often called “trickle-down economics” – saying the current economic system is not only unfair and causing resentment but counter-productive to a thriving middle class saying “These idiotic trickle-down policies are destroying my customer base.”
