Income Distribution As Never Seen Before
I came across this website while goofing off on Reddit. Check it out!
From the site:
"If you ever needed ammunition to support your case that equitable income distributions are essential for our families, for our friends, for our nation, for our world, you will find it here. Within the book Distribution of Lives you will find surprises and a story not told elsewhere. And at this site you will find supporting downloadable data. You will find how integral income distribution is to economic growth, full employment, fair taxation, structuring stimulus programs, appropriate monetary policy, and job creation. All of these are clearly painted so that all of us can easily grasp the concepts and find solutions.
The central economic story of our time is how the United States went from equitable distributions that existed from the 1950s through 1970s to its current state of maldistribution. The prevailing economic theories that financial and monetary manipulations can be corrective in spite of profound maldistribution are proven wrong here. It is perilous to presuppose that such theories can produce a thriving economy when the majority have plainly been harmed to benefit the few. Even if one were to have unstoppable misanthropic tendencies, the data is so plainly obvious that pure pragmatism mandates fixes. Distribution of Lives is not about whining. It is about answers, reasons, and demonstrations. Maldistribution is a contagion that must be stopped. It is advancing worldwide."
