The privileged fifth.

I tweeted this well researched OpEd piece by Thomas Edsall the first time I read it, and after my third reading, want to urge you to read it.  I pass on two  summary graphics that are part of the description of how the privileged top fifth of the U.S. population is becoming a self-perpetuating class that is steadily separating itself by geography, education, and income.

  1. Yes, and thanks, Deric, for this. Jane Mayer's DARK MONEY is a substantiating read as well. Thanks again.
