Ultimately, and I don't think this question was asked, is this concentration of wealth a good thing for the future of the United States? If not what do we, you and I, do about it?

The answer, of course, is that we can do next to nothing about it because the extremely wealthy own the government, and our oligarchic system (one dollar, one vote) means there is nothing that we can do about it.
