These statistics published in the capitalist press for USA are interesting and well presented,but socialists have always insisted, that in capitalism maximum wealth flows upwards to a tiny percentage of the population worldwide.We also argue that in capitalist society there are two basic classes rather than three, one a middle or 'squeezed- middle', as current weasel wording has it in UK: those who own and control the means of production and those who own no productive resources apart from their ability to work. See Class War,What is socialism?, What is capitalism? or our FAQ's above,for more details.
