Fact of the Day

The latest official estimates indicate that the richest US 10 percent held 76 percent of the nation’s wealth as of 2013.

That means for every $10, these few own $7.60, leaving $2.40 for the remaining 90 percent. And the concentration of wealth is only getting worse. (The richest 10 percent held only 67 percent of the nation’s wealth in 1989.)
