How You, I, and Everyone are Still Getting the Top 1 Percent All Wrong
I don’t agree with the constant vilification of America’s top 1
. Some call them “captains of industry”, others have much more choice combinations of nouns and verbs to describe the small subset of Americans that earn substantially more than everyone else — the constantly marginalized 99 — as if they somehow did not deserve their hard-won success. This article from The Atlantic does not go as far to dispel that ridiculous notion as its title — doctored above, originally “How You, I, and Everyone Got the Top 1 Percent All Wrong” — might lead everyone to believe, but I guess it’s a step in the right direction.
