The Birth of the New American Aristocracy - The Atlantic

This is an important piece on growing inequality based on some very eye-opening statistics. It breaks down rich vs poor differently than usual, focusing on the 9.9% - not "rich", but comfortable and well-educated who consider themselves Middle Class but, as the article suggest, have become more like an aristocracy.
