The number for net worth is also striking.

Michael Moore said 400 people had greater net worth than the lower 60% of households.
So the bottom 60% of households possessed just $1.22 trillion of that $53.15 trillion, less than the Forbes 400.

(From his website March 7, 2011. He explains his math on there.)

I'm not sure how financial wealth is measured, or net worth for that matter. Either way it is very striking.
