Ben said that the educational divide played a lot into that. He said that the unemployment rate right now is ~9%, but if you look at college graduates, it's more like 5%, for high school grads it runs into the double digits.

    Scary when you put in perspective of this video you posted...

    They just said it on the radio this morning.

    The UE rate for college grads is the highest it has ever been.... at 5%.


    So you are right, there is a major divide. And this split between rich and poor is not a good one either. The problem is, as soon as you institute means to reduce the leverage and opportunities that are present for the top 1%, you get cries of "SOCIALISM!" from everyone, including the idiots that will NEVER see those advantages (even though they have convinced themselves that one day they will and that this would not be "American" if it happened).

    The key is not to stifle the rich, but try not to make it so much easier for a millionaire to make another million as compared to the common joe to make another $10K.
