How America's inequality machine is firing the Dow into orbit
from Chicago Tribune
A rising tide does lift all boats -- but nowadays, in the U.S., not equally. Under both parties, recoveries have become increasingly lopsided. The current one has helped millions of people find work; it's also benefited asset-owners far more than people who trade their labor for a paycheck. Income distribution, already the most unequal in the developed world, is getting worse. And that's starting to influence everything from America's spending habits to its elections.
