Wealth Inequality in America

The information in this video has been around for a while. I've seen quite a few blogs and articles cite.

The creator describes the video thusly

Infographics on the distribution of wealth in America, highlighting both the inequality and the difference between our perception of inequality and the actual numbers. The reality is often not what we think it is.
