Video: Great Graphical Display of Inequality in America

As a followup to my review of Chrystia Freeland’s good book Plutocrats, and in honor of Forbes’ release of their latest list of the World’s 1,426 Billionaires, everybody should watch this video.  Do it, it just takes 6 minutes.  We can’t have a useful dialogue about these things if we don’t have the facts.

  1. I’d be interested to see how the wealth shifts with each recession. It seems each bust further concentrates rather than redistributes wealth (that may be a naive guess). Thanks for your review of Freeland’s book – looks like an interesting read and well timed for this video.

Public Speaking


I founded Bankers Anonymous because, as a recovering banker, I believe that the gap between the financial world as I know it and the public discourse about finance is more than just a problem for a family trying to balance their checkbook, or politicians trying to score points over next year’s budget – it is a weakness of our civil society. For reals. It’s also really fun for me.
