Wealth Distribution in America: Perception Versus Reality

A Harvard business prof and a [Duke] behavioral economist recently asked more than 5,000 Americans how they thought wealth is distributed in the United States. Most thought that it’s more balanced than it actually is. Asked to choose their ideal distribution of wealth, 92% picked one that was even more equitable.

See more infographs that illuminate this massive wealth gap in this country, although I suspect I could count on one hand the number of readers who’ll click on that link. In the meantime, keep calm and carry on.

Update: So far four clicks on that infograph link. True, I only get six visitors a day, but lets make my “count on one hand” assertion a fact!
