And the point of the presentation? To create wealth envy?What is always missing from such presentations is the fact that our society, at least for now, is highly mobile. Today's poor can be tomorrow's rich and vise versa.My family was probably low middle class. I am now a 1%er. All through hard work, sacrifice, and making good decisions most of my life. And I have friends that started off worse than me.Meanwhile, I have a nephew that started out strong middle class but is basically dirt poor living hand to mouth because of his repeated bad decision making and laziness.As long as society is mobile, I don't care too much who has what.JLC
