Yes but what the graph (in my humble opinion) does not seem to take into account is that the large disparity between our rich and poor may very well be due to the fact that we have so many millionaires and billionaires.

I agree Cecily; however, there is still a tremendous gap, much bigger than the rest of the world. As the world flattens these people will become even more impoverished as they will lose their jobs creating an even larger gap.
