Our goal this week is simple: to be able to describe the current situation of inequality in the United States. Our goal is NOT to come up with solutions (yet!), or even to understand why this is happening (though you might get a taste of this). We just want to get a firm grasp on the statistics and data that show the growth of inequality in recent decades.
