Is this assuming that wealth scales linearly with dollars?  I dont think it does.

Its actual vs what certain demographics think it is, and what they think would be fair.

Id say thats pretty accurate

and FB, the top one is the actual wealth distribution, the bottom ones are the assumed wealth distribution by people of the people in that income range, and then the bottom section is what they say it should be in I guess a "fair" world

America subconsciously wants to be socialist, but it can't pull its collective head out of its ass to realize it.

Quote:

We next explored how demographic characteristics of our respondents affected these estimates. Figure 3 shows these estimates broken down by three levels of income, by whether respondents voted for George W. Bush (Republican) or John Kerry (Democrat) for United States president in 2004, and by gender. Males, Bush voters, and wealthier individuals estimated that the distribution of wealth was relatively more equal than did women, Kerry voters, and poorer individuals; for estimates of the ideal distribution, on the other hand, these same groups (males, Bush voters, and the wealthy) desired relatively more unequal distribution than their counterparts.  Despite these (somewhat predictable) differences, what is most striking about Figure 3 is its demonstration of much more consensus than disagreement among these different demographic groups. All groups – even the wealthiest respondents – desired a more equal distribution of wealth than what they estimated the current United States level to be, while all groups also desired some inequality – even the poorest respondents. In addition, all groups agreed that such redistribution should take the form of moving wealth from the top quintile to the bottom three quintiles. In short, while Americans tend to be relatively more favorable toward economic inequality than members of other countries (Osberg & Smeeding, 2006), Americans’ consensus about the ideal distribution of wealth within the United States appears to dwarf their disagreements across gender, political orientation, and income.




wasnt a long read at all.
