As income inequality skyrockets, a new report from the Economic Policy Institute finds that the economic downturn and gradual recovery has exacerbated the trend. The wages of the richest Americans are making a dramatic comeback, while the rest of the country has seen its income drop by 1.2 percent since 2007.

The wealthiest earners took a hit in the immediate aftermath of the financial crisis, with wages declining 15.6 percent from 2007 to 2009. But these individuals will quickly recover all their losses, while the bottom 90 percent of Americans continue to see their wages shrink:
As the stock market regained its value in the recovery, one would expect the top 1.0 percent to fare better than other workers—and they have, with annual wages growing 8.2 percent from 2009 to 2011 (the S&P grew 37.4 percent over this period). As the recovery continues and the stock market sustains its growth, the top 1.0 percent of wage earners are likely to quickly recoup all of the ground lost in the downturn.

In contrast, annual wages of the bottom 90 percent of earners eroded by 0.6 percent in the downturn—and by a further 1.2 percent in the 2009–2011 recovery. This is not surprising given the persistently high unemployment over this period. Meanwhile, high-wage earners from the 90th to the 99th percentile enjoyed wage growth in the recovery—and are the only wage earners to have higher wages in 2011 than in 2007.

Entrenched wealth-friendly policies have helped smooth the recovery even more for the super-rich. Even under President Obama, maligned by conservatives as “anti-business,” chief executives have seen their paychecks grow steadily. And as top earners’ total incomes — including wages, capital gains, and other a.ssets — recovered, they also benefited from lower tax rates (only some of which was addressed by the recent deal to avert the so-called “fiscal cliff”).

As the EPI report notes, income inequality shot up in recent decades, paused during the economic downturn, and then began growing again in the recovery. The richest 20 percent currently make eight times more than the bottom 20 percent in nearly every state.

It's really not that hard to understand.

The stimulus and monetary policy that the general public demands in order to "save" the economy benefits the banks and Wall Street first and foremost.

Nothing new...the economy is recovering...every economic indicator shows that...except for one of course...unemployment

these companies are back to making record profits but have not hired the work back from before the recession.

well, sooner or later there won't be any money for the 99% and there won't be much else to focus on media wise or material wise cuz there won't be any money, so maybe then, MAYBE, after everything is gone or at risk to being gone, mothrfu*krs will wake the fuk up and try to start handling business. hopefully that's right before there are tanks in the streets.......

we too busy talking about having gold all in my chain, and gold all in my range. the white folks set this sh*t up well....gotta give it to them. they have done such a mental and physical fu*king of the africans they took from africa and all there descendants that i actually have to give them some props. now they have us wanting their sh*t and to be like them. got dudes wanting bentleys....chicks wanting fake nails and weaves and implants....white people are fu*king evil. not all of them however mostly the ones with money and power. sh*t can't stay like this forever.........

and that's by design. white folks know what they are doing. they know they completely sh*tted on minorities since they got here. left a serious open wound in race relations that is nowhere near healing and that sore continues to be an issue today and will always be until it's addressed. and that prolly won't happen because the mere presence of this conversation is enough of a distraction to take people's mind off of the other heinous sh*t they have going on. gotta give it to the white man. they know how to divide and conquer really well.

they sure do, and do it well. bands can make her dance.......gold all in my chain......

its not like we disagree with them and do our own thing. we follow them....right down the path of damnation, literally...this damn nation.
