Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Thu Dec 15, 2011, 11:31 AM

DUers support OWS by posting this Financial Times article to your Facebook & your local Occupy!

FT.com is only free for 7 articles a month, but links don't count. Spread this like your 99% life depends on it.

A quantification of exactly what that income inequality is costing our economy. And how much it deviates from the norm.

I am respecting FT's copy right & provide the edited for brevity snippet below for the facebook summary feature for linked content. You can edit that yourself by clicking in that field, (it will turn into an input text box, where you can delete the default summary) and pasting what is below then hitting enter to save the changes. This needs to rocket around the internets for the next week at least.

High quality global journalism requires investment. Please share this article with others using the link below, do not cut & paste the article. See our Ts&Cs and Copyright Policy for more detail. Email ftsales.support@ft.com to buy additional rights. http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/1bf8e7ba-2578-11e1-9cb0-00144feabdc0.html#ixzz1gcVQOG2t

“We are the 99%”, the slogan of OWS, is a reference to income inequality. An equally valid slogan might be: “We get 58%”, the share of income that goes to workers rather than to investors. If wages were at their 63% postwar average workers would earn an extra $740bn this year, about $5,000 per worker.
