Chart of the Day: Wealth Distribution

This chart, and ten more over on MoJo, tell a sad story about America.

Especially since, oh, just about the time St. Ronald of Reagan took office -- see the chart titled "Winner Take All" when you get over there.

[Added] The source for the above chart is a paper "[f]orthcoming in Perspectives on Psychological Science" by Michael I. Norton (Harvard) and Dan Ariely (Duke), titled "Building a Better America – One Wealth Quintile at a Time." (PDF)
