Actual wealth distribution in America is much more unbalanced than people realize — and much worse still than they would like.

What we want & what we have don't align: Norton & Ariely (2011) asked a nationally representative sample (N= 5,221) what they considered to be the ideal wealth distribution in the U.S. and what they estimated it actually was. They then contrasted these numbers with the actual distribution. The results are rather jarring. Although the sample expressed a preference for a relatively equitable distribution, in reality the top 20% of Americans have around 85% of the wealth.

Daily chart: Second term unlucky | The Economist
The Economist compared changes across eight economic indicators to analyze the performance of second presidential terms since 1901. Findings? Only three of the eleven presidents had better second terms and in every term, seven out of eight economic indicators deteriorated. Even with those odds, we’re still hopeful for the next four years.

A prominent scientist who was skeptical of the evidence that climate change was real, let alone that it was caused by humans, now says he has made a "total turnaround." Richard Muller, a professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley, says he has become convinced that "the prior estimates of the rate of warming were correct," and that humans are "almost entirely the cause" of that warming.
