I think the economics statistics are a bunch of garbage. This is what I think should be supplied:
Divide the country into 12 groups by income. Take the bottom 90% and divide them into 9 groups, 10% each. Take the top 10% and divide them into 3 groups, 9%, 0.9% and 0.1%. It shouldn't be difficult to figure out which group Bill Gates is in, but who else is in there with him. LOL. Anyway, I want income and NET WORTH within each group.
One thing wrong with the entire economy is this lack of emphasis on NET WORTH. Every 12 year old should know NET WORTH = ASSETS - LIABILITIES.
Up with REAL capitalism.
