56. "Wealth inequality is as extreme today as it was during the Great Depression years.
....In real terms, the wealthy hold the majority of this nations wealth and income. The problem in this country is mass disillusionment. In a recent study by Duke and Harvard University they found many Americans believe that the top 20% of our nations wealthiest own 60% of the wealth. The real figure is the top 20% own 84% of our nations wealth and it is increasing every year."
