Report: Super Rich Are Actually Much Richer Than We Thought Thanks to Hidden Tax Havens | Deliberating Violent Revolution | Scoop.it

The Great Decoupling of the US Economy | Deliberating Violent Revolution | Scoop.it

In the early 1980s the picture started to change for the average American worker. There were still a lot of jobs available, but they started to pay less well. Median household income became decoupled from the other three stats and grew more slowly than they did. By the time of the 2001 recession, median income was lagging behind pretty badly.
