    Because GDP is also going up.

    Hence the %-of-GDP relevant numbers.

    However, since the end of the recession, the top 1% of earners has procured over 121% of the economic gains in that time.

    Meanwhile, worker wages as a % of GDP are at their lowest levels ever.

    The people work harder.  The elite make more.  The elite spend more.  It's the american way.

     

     



    The rich got 121% of something?

     

    No wonder they are rich.

     

    Look, enough of this class warfare BS, particularly that with mathmatical mobius equations in play.

     



    Dismiss and call it whatever you like.  It's still a fact:

     

    From 2009 to 2011, average real income per family grew modestly by 1.7% (Table 1) but the gains were very uneven. Top 1% incomes grew by 11.2% while bottom 99% incomes shrunk by 0.4%. Hence, the top 1% captured 121% of the income gains in the first two years of the recovery. From 2009 to 2010, top 1% grew fast and then stagnated from 2010 to 2011. Bottom 99% stagnated both from 2009 to 2010 and from 2010 to 2011.

    How is it possible for the 1 percent to capture more than all of the nation’s income gains? The number is due to the fact that those at the bottom saw their incomes drop.

     

    As you say, it's no wonder they're rich.

     

     



    You, or the rich, can't gain 121% of anything.  it is impossible.

    Simple math.

     Obama isn't trying to rewrite the constitution, but he sure is doing is best to bypass it any chance he gets.

     

     You can argue numbers, ratios, etc., all you want. The simple point of the fact, however, isn't what happens up there, it's what happens to people living in the real world.

     How much will it effect:

    Groceries

    Entertainment

    Necessary Repairs

    Equipment

     The things we all need to survive. This is what all you econimic majors and accountants don't ever seem to be able to see. Stop looking at the numbers and start looking at people, for their opinions are worth far more than any numbers you can come up with.

     



    Oh, come on now.  you know darn well every time a rich person makes money it comes out of the hide of a poor person, that's the real problem.

    Cost of food goes up?  Blame a rich person, not bad economic policies.

    Cost of fuel goes up?  Blame a rich person, not a poor energy policy.

    Can't afford to repair your car?  Blame a rich person, not a industry rife with costly government regulation and a socialized workforce.

     

    But, there is hope.  The hope lies in the change, the change promised to fundemendtally transform this country into a bunch of economically unviable entities dependent on government, i.e. make us all poor.

    Once we are all poor, the problem will cease to exist.

    That's Obama's plan, that's it in a nutshell.

    Your summary of Obama's plan is simply absurd.  Ideology has thwarted your ability to use your brain.  Communism, Marxism, Socialism, Liberalism, Nazism...  "Whatever".  That is not serious thinking . That is just ideological ranting.  Now run along.

    I see I have tumbled onto the truth, and the "Obama police" are quick on the draw to disimiss it.
