Unequal to the task

Did you know?
According to PolitiFact and CNN, 400 Americans have more wealth than half of all Americans combined.
OECD's study in May 2013 said the richest 10 percent of society in OECD countries pocketed 9.5 times as much market income as the poorest 10 percent in 2010, up from 9 times in 2007. It also stated that the widest gap between rich and poor was found in Chile, Mexico, Turkey and the United States. 
That's right. Our economy is on par with Chile, Mexico and Turkey. Of the 34 nations in the study, we are ranked 31st. And we're becoming MORE unequal, not less. Soon the United States will be the largest banana republic on the planet.
