Wealth inequality is the biggest non-issue I can think of.

yeah i agree. im young, and poor for US standards, but i live in a fully furnished apartment and drive a nice bmw. im thankful for capitalism, because otherwise i'd really be struggling here at the botom of the working class totem pole. I get to live in semi luxury for only 40 hours of work a week. its amazing. most kids my age blow all their money, then cry about inequality. retards.

This is bullshit. the average is not the medium. If Bill Gates, me, and my neighbor average our net worth, it would be in the billions. I'm not even a millionaire. watch out for averages and mediums people. Most americans dont even own stock.

A couple do make what you are saying clear in the articles. The headline word household should be replaced with a new word, like mansionhold. 😁

Why dont thel left acknowledge this? However based on the recent Obama story it surprises me he did not also claim this also.

Don't gloss over the numbers. that's only 1.8%. with more than half coming from stocks and mutual funds which I'm sure we are all heavily invested in.

Did anyone else nitice that ABC News and The Washington Times published the EXACT same story? I guess plagiarism doesn't apply to journalists, which makes sense considering thier constantly slipping ethics.

What’s more interesting is that one of them is labeled left and one is labeled right but they published the exact same story bashing trump. Wouldn’t be surprised if they were owned by the same people.

It looks like it is an Associated Press piece. The Times credit AP but abc seem to be trying to look like journalists or have made an error.

to be clear, working class wealth did not increase. nor has it since the 60's. "household income" is a misleading title for this statistic.

Well, why should working class wealth go up? Isnt it a bracket, much like poor, middle and upper?

What are you on about, Beshit? That is dumb even by your standards.🙂

how many of those pension funds are underfunded?

So household wealth is up and stocks are down... sounds like markets are handling redistribution just fine all by themselves. If you look at those facts businesses are losing money while the average American has more in their pocket/savings/investments. No need for all that socialism talk now I guess.🤔😎 and yes I am being facetious.
