'Happy Days Are Here Again --- for the Superwealthy'

Dave Gibson, writing for Mother Jones:

The Great Recession officially ended five years ago, but that's news for millions of Americans: A stunning 95 percent of income growth since the recovery started has gone to the superwealthy. The top 1 percent has captured almost all post-recession income growth. Capitalism! U-S-A! U-S-A! (That was sarcasm.) Be sure to read the comments; good stuff. My favorite: Economies don't DO anything. Policies, wealth distribution, education and health care direct the economy. When policies keep the masses stupid, sick and poor the wealthy make billions.
