Wealth AND Income Gap

This is kind of an old article (02/23/2014)  and you all may have already read it.  For those interested in the increasing wealth and income gaps that may not have read it, I think this article does a pretty good job of keeping wealth and income separate in the discussion, although in the end the growing gap is pretty deep for both. Other articles I've read on the subject tend to jump back and forth between income and wealth in such a way as to render their interpretation of the data questionable at best, leaving me to wonder if they even know what they're talking about.   This article speaks to both gaps separately with a lot of stats for the stat lovers.
