Wealth Inequality in America

The issue of wealth inequality across the United States is well known, but this video shows you the extent of that imbalance in dramatic and graphic fashion. The reality is often much, much worse than we think.

Originally published in November on Youtube, the video is making the rounds on the Monday after Obama signed into law $85 billion worth of government spending cuts after no deal was reached last week on sequestration. Perhaps more tellingly, it’s also the same day that Forbes magazine released its annual billionaires list, highlighting the 1,426 people who control $5.4 trillion of the world’s wealth.
