Synopsis:

This work provides a thorough overview and analysis of the increasing gap between the Americans at the top and bottom of the economic scale.


· A selection of documents and excerpts relating to how Americans perceive the gap that exists between the haves and the have-nots, such as Andrew Carnegie's famous "Gospel of Wealth" (1889)

· An up-to-date selection of statistics, enabling the reader to get a clear, quantitative sense of the extent of income and wealth differences in contemporary America

Book Description:

In the United States today, the net worth of the Forbes 400 richest Americans increased by $120 billion in the last year, yet nearly 20 percent of households have zero or negative net worth. This is just one indication of a three-decade-long increase in the gap between rich and poor that is on the minds of the public, politicians, the media, economists, and activists.
