The problem is that you can't really lump the "top 1%" together. Here's why:


20th percentile=$20,000
99th percentile=$350,000

This is a factor of 17.5 over 79 percent of the population. The top 1%, however spans over a factor of 1000, if you take $350,000 as the bottom and $350,000,000 as the top (which is still a very conservative top number)

The top of the top 1% is in a far, far, far different place than the bottom of the top 1%.
Thanks for making me feel like a stupid worthless person
