Wall Street, in association with the banks, are controlling America, and Americans

The 1 Percent’s Problem http://vnty.fr/KSE5T4 Joseph E. Stiglitz

Of the 1%, by the 1%, for the 1% http://vnty.fr/L6uEAz Joseph E. Stiglitz

The top 1% of earners:
have a 23.5% share of the national income. The last time the top 1% reached
this level of income was in 1928, just before the Great Stock Market Crash and
the Great Depression. During the glory years of the American Empire, between
1946 and 1971, the top 1% of households’ share of the national income ranged
between 8% and 13%. With the era of unbridled greed and debt that began in
the 1980s, the inequitable distribution of wealth has risen to new heights. This
level of pillaging by those in control of the finance sector of the economy,
supported by their mouthpieces in Congress, and championed by their
controlled media pundits, has reached a level that will eventually lead to
revolution. Source: Citizens for Tax Justice http://www.ctj.org/
