How would YOU divide the wealth?

A new website by the Economic Policy Institute, based in the US, with an animated presentation on inequality in the US – which has followed a similar pattern to inequality in the UK .  It allows you to decide:

  1. How you think wealth ought to be divided; and
  2. How you think the wealth actually is divided.

It then reveals  the actual numbers, how this relates to you, how it happened, and what can be done about it.

Our favourite line:

Tax Fairness:  Higher tax rates for top earners has never been an impediment to economic growth – just an impediment to amassing vast fortunes
