U S Income Gaps Between Rich And Everyone Else More Than Tripled In Last 30 Years

Recommended Posts

I thought that the data was presented in constant 2007 dollars so the increase in income for each quintile is measured in real and not nominal terms.

The prices of discretionary items such as computing power have been declining for years. It is the rise in the cost of essentials - shelter, food, and in the US healthcare (and education if you consider that an essential) that has really hammered anyone not in the top quintile.
