Here is an amazing video on income inequality in the US. While the information presented is very important, the presentation is absolutely fantastic. Take a look to see what is possible when using video to make data come to life.
Did you know that the top 1% of Americans own 40% of the wealth, while the bottom 80% own only 7%? What’s more frightening is that income inequality is growing in the US.
Is it morally acceptable for the wealthiest to own that much of the wealth, while there is so much poverty and suffering in the world? You make the judgement.
Regardless, of your feelings on the subject, growing income inequality and poverty do not bode well for the future of the United States.
