    Beautifully done. But these stats are just heart wrenching.

    Excellent job at making this so comprehendible and relatable. Shocking numbers and even more shocking is our skewed perception of this corruption.

    Great post!

    Wanted to share that a very accessible and great read regarding the inequality in the U.S. is Robert Reich's Aftershock.

    This is a very informative and creative way to present the much known fact. What would be interesting is to see how this stacks up to the average in other countries. Is this the trend just for America or for other countries too? Which countries are doing better on this measure? It will give us action points to see what the better countries are doing and how we can adopt them.
