Summary: - Brings together for the first time facts and figures showing exactly what ''the 99% and the 1%' divide means in the real world and the damage it causes- Identifies the social and historical forces that created and perpetuate this divide - Offers concrete proposals for closing the inequality gapFor over thirty years, we've lived through a radical redistribution of wealth - upward, to a tiny fraction of the population.
