The findings are hardly surprising. Currently, the wealth held by the top 400 Americans is more than the combined wealth of the bottom 150 million, as economist Robert Reich pointed out earlier this year.

Thanks Carrie for the link to the Huffington Post article by Harry Bradford. Read and sadly noted.

I have to wonder how it's possible that 400 Americans currently hold more wealth than the combined wealth of 150 million Americans. Are these 400 people smarter, luckier, more inventive, or more resourceful than the rest?

There are some links within the article Carrie attached that provide visual aids in the forms of maps and charts with accompanying statistical data for further insight.

The point is moot because income inequality is growing rapidly in all 50 states.
