The Distorted Wealth Distribution in USA Displayed
This is a great video that shows, in a simplified way, how skewed the wealth distribution in America has become. Its not about favoring socialism by any means. Quite the opposite. However, it does show how dramatically things have changed in favor of the very rich and to the detriment of everyone else. Things have gotten so out of wack where a CEO makes 380 times the amount the average person working for him makes. Does that CEO actually contribute that much more? I doubt it based on my experience in business.
Quick rundown: Grew up in Lombard, Illinois, went to Arizona State University, worked as a CPA with Arthur Andersen & Co, then Laventhal and Horwath, then Rolling Stones, then Heron International, then Goodby Berlin and Silverstein in San Francisco. Moved to the foothills in 1990 and traded futures and designed websites. Married to Kate Stewart, now living in Colfax, CA. We have six grandchildren. I enjoy camping in our RV, hiking, kayaking, fishing, droning and cross country skiing Also conga drumming, photography and dogs.
