US Wealth Distribution is Crazy

This is a great, clear video showing how the distribution of wealth in the USA has gone crazy. Joe Stiglitz, the Nobel prizewinning economist, concluded from his research that the market has no Invisible Hand that makes things all right.

Only six minutes, and very well worth seeing.
